The future of the Lichfield branch of Dorothy Perkins is in doubt after the clothing retailer’s owner has gone into administration.

The Arcadia Group – which also operates Burton, Topshop and Topman stores across the country – has appointed administrators from Deloitte.

Stores are expected to continue trading when they are allowed to reopen after the national lockdown ends while attempts are made to find a buyer.

The Lichfield branch of Dorothy Perkins is one of 444 stores operated by Arcadia across the UK.

  1. Can’t believe it, with Debenhams going aswell we’ll have few or no clothes shops in lichfield. Not everyone wants to shop on line. There something special about wandering around a clothes store and choosing things to try on. The hassel of waiting for delivery and then arranging to send stuff back that you don’t want may suit some people but not all. Many of the older generation don’t have access or even the know how of ordering on line. There are fewer and fewer shops catering for the multigenerational shoppers! The fate of the high street or town centres is dire.
