I loved Cath Kidston but have been sad to see how badly the store staff that built the brand have been treated during administration, very poor communication by the company to the shop staff.
Or that it had been bought by Equity investors who had no clue what kind of shop it was, let Cath Kidson think I want no part of this and leave and then proceeded to arrogantly or carelessly sell utter tat (lol)
Before purchasing check out the comments on their fb page. 900 staff who have been left without redundancy pay and in the lurch.... hundreds of customers who are not receiving orders and zero communication as to when they will or if they will.
To confirm Cath Kidston did shut the Cheshire Oaks outlet shop as that is my closest store. The company will operate solely online in the future <3
Yeah, Covid-19 has been hard on high street business. It's sad, but understandable, huge drop in overheads for them trading online only.
