Were Whittards actually trading particularly poorly or is this purely an ownership issue to do with Baugur money being tied up in Icelandic banks?

While you're all on here having fun speculating on the next retailer to go bust, spare a thought for the hundreds of thousands of people who work within the retail trade

Oh, and by the way, many of the guesses on here are miles wide of the mark!

Not much to do with Baugur except they may have been inclined to fund the losses for longer than they did had the banking crisis not happened. The business was trading poorly and carried too much debt which essentially caused their downfall.

thinking away from the names mentioned here - what about - Tchibo (certainly in the UK), and maybe Officers Club? Do odd clothes and all sorts.
Or maybe even Micro Anvika - whenever I see a shop, there is never anyone in it.

Gone...but again pre-packed and rather dubiously sold back to the same management. What an easy way to walk away from your debts. Shitty little business anyway, must be about the 3rd time it's gone into admin then been bought out again.

first time I have managed to guess semi right at anything! Others that may go down the toilet? I guess any retailer that doesnt have a good online presence / ability to buy online, would be high on my list.

- anything with excessive borrowings
- retailers of big ticket items such as furniture, white goods and electrical goods
- mid market fashion retailers
