The collapse of House of Fraser has affected a plethora of business,
including luxury handbag maker Mulberry whose share value plunged 30
percent after it said it was setting aside 3 million pounds to cover the

have been cancelled. To date the House of Fraser website remains offline
with its e-commerce channels disabled.
