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.”
