More than 1,800 workers are set to lose their jobs at Oasis and Warehouse, with outlets in Norfolk, with all stores to close.
Stores are closing and online sales stopping after administrators failed to find a buyer for the firm.
The failure to save any part of Oasis Warehouse Limited, the company behind the two brands, along with The Idle Man and Bastyan Fashions, will result in the loss of 1,803 jobs.
Administrator Rob Harding said: “Covid-19 has presented extraordinary challenges which have devastated the retail industry. It is with great sadness that we have to announce a sale of the business has not been possible and that we are announcing so many redundancies.”
He added: “This is a very difficult time for the group’s employees and other key stakeholders and we will do everything we can to support them through this.”
