BERLIN — Hertie, the struggling German department store chain, filed for bankruptcy Thursday, underscoring weaknesses in the German retail sector.
The 73-door, second-tier group, owned by the British investment firms Dawnay Day (85 percent) and Hilco (15 percent) but based in Essen, Germany, has been operating at a loss. The stores, which are 21,500 square feet to 86,000 square feet, are located in smaller urban neighborhoods and employ 4,100 people.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
