WE WILL BE BACK UP AND RUNNING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE: HOUSE OF FRASER


WE WILL BE BACK UP AND RUNNING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE:  HOUSE OF FRASER
Back in June the chain announced plans to close over 30 stores in 2019 as part of a rescue plan, as we told in our MSE News Story.

House of Fraser's website is currently down, and displaying a message saying: "We’re currently working hard to make some improvements to the website. Don’t worry, we will be back up and running as soon as possible."

EY (also known as Ernst & Young) was set to be confirmed as the administrator for House of Fraser later this morning, but around 10am there was a stock market announcement from Sports Direct saying it has acquired all of the UK stores of House of Fraser for £90m, the brand and all of the stock in the business. It's not yet clear what this means for the future of House of Fraser.

House of Fraser staff are being informed that they will be transferred over to Sports Direct.
House of Fraser's customer service team has told us that stores are open for "business as usual" and gift cards are still being accepted for now. It has also told us that customers can continue to use their 'Recognition Card' - the company's loyalty card.

Unfortunately however, as is always the case when a company goes into administration, gift and loyalty cards could stop being accepted at any time, so it may be wise to spend yours now, whilst you still can.


It's not yet clear what Sports Direct will decide to do in terms of gift cards.
