The Horsham Phones4u store is one of 550 stores closed this morning (Monday September 15) after the company announced it was entering administration.

The West Street shop lay dark and empty after two of the biggest mobile phone chains, EE and Vodafone, took the ‘unexpected decision’ to withdraw their business from Phones 4u.
