British Home Stores 3-Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands
British Home Stores 3-Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands
This is the Sutton Coldfield branch in the Gracechurch Shopping Centre and is one of the 163 UK stores and 74 overseas stores in the BHS - British Homes Stores - chain. The company was founded in 1928 and the first store opened in Brixton, London. On 12th March 2015 the company was sold to Retail Acquisitions Limited. On 25th April this year, 2016, it was placed into administration and on 2nd June went into liquidation. Thousands of staff have lost their jobs and there is a huge 'black hole' in the pension funds which I read it is hoped the Government, in the shape of the Pensions Protection Fund, will step in and plug.
