Bathstore collapses: UK bath specialists plunge into administration – 900 jobs at risk


Bathstore will continue to trade from its 135 stores in the UK, all of which are at risk of closure, while in administration.

BDO will now attempt to find a buyer for the business.

Ryan Grant, BDO business restructuring partner, said: “Despite significant investment into the business over the past five years, Bathstore has struggled to overcome the well-documented challenges facing the UK retail sector.

“The appointment was made after several months of difficult trading, and the failure of ongoing talks to find a buyer for the business.

“Bathstore is continuing to trade in administration whilst the administrators seek a buyer.”
