Anyone know what is happening with HOF? I read that its been taken over by sports direct but that all but a handful of the stores have been earmarked for closure, this was a few months back and cant find much of an update....

You've heard more than me, I remember them saying months ago they were to close but didn't hear about Sports Direct take over. You'd think with Christmas coming up they would make the most of it

Yes it was taken over by the Sport Direct boss who saved House of Fraser going into administration, I think he paid around 90 million. here is a link where you can read more on how it’s going since taking over - https://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2019/03/6-months-since-mike-ashleys-house-of-fraser-takeover-whats-changed/

Since the take over there’s always a sale. It’s not as good as it used to be for example you could order several items and return with free postage those that didn’t fit or feel comfortable so HOF have lost my custom and some of my friends feel the same.

Mike Ashley owns that, TOO? That guy seems to be buying failed business stores from U.K. but brand-wise, they're well enough so he probably won't go bankrupt either way (some people are wishing he does).

Oh no! I did not even know this. I like to browse and shop at House of Fraiser! Kind of sad to just have found this out. Thank you for letting me know
