Fashion and homewares chain Life & Style has been sold by its administrators to Ashloch Limited who say they will retain 62 stores and over 470 staff and return all the business to its original Ethel Austin branding.

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."
