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.
