The homeware retailer filed a notice of intent (NOI) last month to appoint administrators – putting 12,000 jobs at risk across its 400 stores in the UK.

CEO Mark Jackson said then: “We’ve all fought hard to keep this incredible business intact but must concede that time has run out and now, we must do what’s best to preserve as many jobs as possible, for as long as is possible, by working with our appointed administrators.”
