In another potential victim of the recession, following in the footsteps of Woolworths and Zavvi that experienced similar downfalls last year. It’ll no doubt knock consumer confidence down another notch.

In October figures were released that stated that although online retail continued to grow by 7.6% in September year on year, it was the lowest growth recorded.

At current, a small pop up appears whenever you try to add a item to your basket stating ‘sorry, title cannot be purchased’.

According to the BBC all orders placed before the suspension will be fulfilled but customers should expect to experience delays.
