Cath Kidston to go into administration. Story here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-52172005

A spokesperson said it was part of an ongoing process to explore all options for the company which was in the middle of a turnaround plan before the global Covid-19 pandemic hit.

Cath Kidston employs 941 people, of which 820 have been furloughed under the government's employee payment scheme.

Where is the surprise in that? All is as expected. Pointless statement! Like your infantile posts. it will get worse before it gets better.

Deeds will not be less valiant because they are unpraised.

fwiw i think Debenhams will go altogether.
Actually went into administration on 9 April.

I can't see anyone being willing to take on any of the business for that future day when the high street re-opens. The (mostly) large and prominent stores will leave significant gaps.

RIP.

Covid-19 looks like the last nail in the coffin for the High Street.
