Tati, a French discount retailer of apparel, jewelry and other products, is envisaging the sale of its 11 franchised Tati Optic retail stores, which had revenues of €8.9 million in 2002. The group, which has a total of 27 stores in France and employs a reported 1,200 people, has filed for bankruptcy protection after a higher operating loss of €10 million last year on lower sales of nearly €150 million.
