Online fashion retailer BHS.com has announced it will be shutting down its site following a review by its Qatari based owners Al Mana.
The group purchased the retail giant’s brand and worldwide IP in 2016 after the company collapsed, and launched the site later that year in September.
The announcement of the site’s impending closure comes after the company recently reported a 23% increase in sales, driven by strong womenswear performance, with gross profit also rising by 69%. Al Mana said it will be now be focusing on a more store-based business.
A spokesman for BHS.com said: “The 18 members of our BHS.com team, along with all suppliers, will be treated fairly and equitably as the website is closed down. We’d like to thank our team, suppliers and our customers for all their support over the past 20 months.”
