Breaking News! Laura Ashley Files for Administration

In the News

Looks like Laura Ashley has filed for administration.

Covid 19 won‘t have helped any rescue talks.

Sad news, up to 2700 staff could lose their jobs.

Oh dear. I know they’ve been financially unstable for years. I like the style of their home wear and it’s good quality too.

Me too Pjran. Lovely classic styles and great quality. Quite expensive though. It’s a shame for the employees

How they kept on going on for so long surprises me.

I hadn't seen this so thanks for raising it Johnny. It's another one I will be sad to see go. I've only ever bought things in their sales (otherwise out of my league 😂) but I love the shop.

I seen on a girls group on Facebook that some girls partner had lost his job working at Laura Ashley doing upholstery. It’s a shame to see the shops go and a shame for those who work their who now face looking for a new job. I was in a similar situation myself recently as the company I used to work for are closing their Birmingham office and just having keeping their other 2 sites which are both over 90 miles away! 100 people are losing their jobs so I started looking for another job and started a new job last Monday! ☺️

I hadn't realised they were even still around - I have not seen one for ages.

Carphone Warehouse also announced it will be closing all of it's standalone stores - resulting in 2,900 redundancies. Although, the shops they have inside PC World and Curry's will remain open - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-51923295
