The ASOS website has currently stopped trading due to a massive fire at their warehouse in Yorkshire which has caused ‘substantial damage’.
The ASOS website currently has a holding page which states;
“We have pressed pause on the ASOS website, this is due to a fire in our Barnsley distribution centre in the early hours of Saturday.
Thankfully no-one was hurt and we expect to be back to normal for you in the next day or so”
ASOS does have other distribution centres worldwide but most orders do go through the Barnsley hub which has around 10 million boxes. Three floors have been affected by the fire and so it’s going to take time to assess the extent of the damage.
Arson is suspected to be the cause of the fire.
Orders that we’re being processed or recently placed will also be delayed.
