House of Fraser cancels all online orders and goes offline

Labour MP Frank Field

Meanwhile, it is understood hundreds of suppliers to House of Fraser are owed GBP753m but will not be repaid by its new owner, Sports Direct.

HoF has already been forced to cancel all its online orders after a dispute with its third-party logistics company, XPO, which it owes £30m.

United Kingdom department store retailer House of Fraser is cancelling all online orders and refunding customers following a reported dispute with its warehouse operator.

XPO logistics, which operates a House of Fraser distribution centre in Wellingborough, "has told employees to stop accepting orders from the department store", reports The Times.

XPO could now be owed tens of millions of pounds, but under the pre-pack administration deal in which House of Fraser was acquired, the purchases are able to discard existing pension liabilities and creditor claims.

Trump called Ohr a "disgrace" outside the White House and said, "I suspect I will be taking it away very quickly". In his Friday comments, Trump said he had gotten a "tremendous response" for his action against Brennan.

They're advising people who have these to post them to head office, although it hasn't been confirmed whether refunds will be issued.

Discount tycoon Mike Ashley could emerge from the House of Fraser deal "smelling of roses" if he took charge of the company's pension scheme, MP Frank Field has said.

In a statement, which does not mention XPO Logistics, Sports Direct said: 'Since the acquisition, the group has started meeting with various House of Fraser suppliers and concessions.

The retailer said it didn't take the decision lightly, but felt it was the best option as it couldn't give customers a clear idea on when their orders would be delivered. "Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused", they said on their Twitter. Ordered a £90 purse last Thursday. "If not can I have my money back so I can shop somewhere else". However, your order will be delivered as soon as possible'.

Other House of Fraser clothing suppliers have taken action as they negotiate over payments. A message on the site read: "We're now working hard to make some improvements to the website".
