Ashloch Limited is owned by Sue Townsend who has a strong commercial track record in both UK and International retail and has previously worked for Mothercare and BHS.

In a statement released, Ms Townsend said "I am delighted with the conclusion to the purchase of the Ethel Austin chain and I am looking forward to the opportunities and challenges of returning this once great brand back to profitability."
