La Senza’s ecommerce website has been put on hold while administrators look for a buyer for its stores. Its owner, Marnixheath, was put into administration on Wednesday. The news comes just over two years since La Senza UK, then under different ownership, was previously in administration.

PwC administrator Robert Moran said its 55 UK stores, along with three Pinkberry sister stores, would remain open as administrators trade the business as normal ahead of a potential sale. However, 752 jobs are at risk.

Although the stores remain open, the company’s ecommerce site is closed for the moment, displaying only a message informing customers of the administrators’ details, while also emphasising that La Senza’s 150 stores in Canada are not affected, nor its 330 franchise stores in more than 30 other countries.
