La Senza to close 81 stores

High Street lingerie chain La Senza is set to close 81 of its 146 stores after announcing over the Christmas period that it would be entering into administration.

The company, which employs 2,600 staff across its portfolio, has posted the list of outlets set to close on its website, but has yet to reveal a timeline for the planned closures.

Accountants KPMG were appointed in early December to advise La Senza on a re-structuring agreement, with store closures touted at the time as one of a number of options under consideration.

Private Equity investor Lion Capital purchased La Senza, of which Dragon’s Den panellist Theo Paphitis was a major stakeholder, in 2006.

On discovering that the company would be going into administration, Paphitis tweeted: “Just heard sad news that @LaSenzaUK which was once my baby has filed for Administration. Happy with new baby@BouxAvenue but still SAD!"

The business was one of several to struggle over the festive season. Hawkin’s Bazaar and fashion chain D2 Jean also went into administration during the period, while the debt ridden Blacks Leisure reportedly saw its biggest shareholder Mike Ashley walk away from buy out talks.
