// Asos pauses incoming deliveries from suppliers to manage stock amid the Covid-19 pandemic
// The retailer is continuing to serve its customer deliveries as usual
Asos has reportedly halted all incoming deliveries from suppliers and third-party brands to make time for adjustments and manage stock amid the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Drapers, the online retailer is consequently refusing shipments for spring 20 orders from several third-party brands and suppliers.
However, Asos said it was continuing to serve its customer deliveries as usual, and in a bid to appeal to a larger audience, the retailer is offering a 20 per cent discount through its app.

Asos is not the first retailer to pause incoming deliveries from suppliers.
Fashion retailer New Look paused all current and future production earlier this week.
Primark also wrote to its suppliers to request to halt all current and future production and the purchasing of any materials.
Meanwhile, retailers including Monsoon Accessorize, and Debenhams extended their supplier payment terms last week.
