A number of Paperchase stores are at risk of closure following the company going into administration.

Supermarket giant Tesco has purchased rights to the brand, and plans to sell Paperchase goods in its stores.


However, the company's 106 physical branches now have an uncertain future, and closing-down sales are currently taking place.

Among the locations with an uncertain future are stores in St Albans, London Colney, Hitchin and Watford.

All vouchers and loyalty cards became invalid as of yesterday (Tuesday, February 14).

Refunds have also become unavailable, but products may be exchanged if returned to a branch.

It has not been confirmed when stores will be shut for good.

The company first opened its doors in 1968 in Kensington, London.

Paperchase has been approached for comment.
