Deathwatch: Confetti gets cold feet, administrators called in
It's always a rum do when businesses go bust and people lose money, but some of you will no doubt have had the biggest day of your life screwed over by this news. Wedding company Confetti has gone into administration, leading to the closure of six stores in Glasgow, Leeds, Chester, Birmingham, Reading and London and the loss of nearly 100 jobs.
The administrators are said to be concentrating on the business's online operations for the time being, and are looking to secure a new owner before Monday. The company has been in operation since 1999, and was a portal for wedding dresses, gifts and related trips and services.
A note on the Confetti website state that customers will be contacted individually regarding any outstanding orders; if you don't take much comfort from that reassurance, numbers are also provided for the administrators and Confetti customer services.
