The department store chain, which is being wound down, said shops in Portsmouth, Staines, Harrogate, Weymouth and Worcester would also shut permanently.
As a result, 320 staff – including 140 at Oxford Street – who are currently furloughed will be made redundant.
The beleaguered retailer, which traces its roots back 243 years and started trading as a drapery and haberdasher from a shop near its Oxford Street store, entered liquidation at the start of December after the JD Sports chain walked away from rescue talks.
Speaking of semiconductors....Honda will shut its UK factory for four days next week as global supply chain problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic continue to plague the Japanese carmaker.
The closure is thought to be related to the unavailability of semiconductors, the computer chips used to run cars’ onboard management systems. The problem has affected carmakers around the world. Volkswagen has described it as a “global semiconductor bottleneck”.
Honda UK told workers that some production activities would be suspended between 18 and 21 January because of Covid-related global supply issues, a spokesperson said. The factory will aim to restart production on 22 January, he added.
