About three dozen employees of Netanya furniture warehouse Kika remained outside of the store on Thursday afternoon, vowing to remain until they received their April salaries.

The Israeli branch of the Austrian chain is in danger of closing and failed to open its doors on Thursday after Bank Leumi and Bank Hapoalim shut off its credit line.

Earlier on Thursday, more than two hundred of the store's employees gathered in the parking lot, demanding their pay for April.

The employees said they wanted to prevent the company's management from removing merchandise from the store.
