Lovisa Holdings Ltd (LOV) share price gains are another’s pain

Lovisa Holdings Ltd (ASX: LOV) shares rose 8% today following news that one of its competitors might be closing.

Lovisa is a popular fast-fashion jewellery retailer that was founded in 2010 by managing director Shane Fallscheer in partnership with private investment group BB Retail Capital (BBRC).

Since its founding, the company has quickly grown to over 350 stores across Australia, South Africa, the UK and throughout the world.

Lovisa shares jump on Colette Closing

Although no material news was released by Lovisa today, Australian investors may be getting their hopes up following the news that one of its key competitors, Colette, has filed for administration.

Despite having around 140 stores in Australia and New Zealand, Colette appears to have been hit by the weak retail climate.

Fellow businesses such as Harris Scarfe, Bardot and Jeanswest have also decided to close shop in recent months.

The administrator, Deloitte, is planning to continue trading until it can either sell or recapitalise the Colette business.
