The return of BHS

The return of BHS

BHS is coming back, after it looked like it had sunk without a trace.

However, we won't be seeing it on the high street by the looks of it, as it'll be relaunched as an online retailer, as soon as this week.

A Qatari group called the Al Mana Group bought the rights to the BHS website and international shops in summer, and the online presence will be managed by David Anderson who used to be the retail director and head of international for BHS.

With there being over a million online BHS online account holders, someone clearly thinks that this could be a success.

This new website has even struck deals with former BHS suppliers, so if there were things that you liked buying from the collapsed store, then chances are this new site will have what you need.

Anderson said: "We have analysed what they were buying and what they weren't", and that the company are convinced that this site can succeed where "others have failed."

"I would like to be the number one department store of choice online for clothing and homeware," added Anderson.

However, should the company be concerned that BHS has a damaged reputation, and that people will steer clear of the whole thing?

"So much has been said about what has gone on. We've just got to look ahead and face the future," said Anderson.
