Marcs and David Lawrence will continue shutting stores over the next fortnight.

The shuttering of 13 Marcs and David Lawrence stores has already started to take a toll on employees.

The closures have resulted in 20 job losses, with another 50 employees to be offered redundancy or employment in other stores.

Four David Lawrence locations and one Marcs outlet in Victoria will shut by next week.

This will be in addition to one David Lawrence boutique and one Marcs shop in Sydney.

The businesses were placed in voluntary administration on February 2 with $30 million in debts.

Close to $3 million of this is in worker entitlements and a $700,000 debt to the Australian Taxation Office.

Parent company Webster Holdings still employs more than 1100 workers across 39 stores and 140 department store concessions.
