DVD rental chain Blockbuster has called in the administrators, according to reports.
The company has its headquarters in Harefield Place, off The Drive in Ickenham, 528 stores across the UK, and employs 4,190 people.
It has a store in Belmont Road, Uxbridge, as well as ones in Hayes and Ruislip.
A buyer is being sought for the business and it is anticipated that stores will remain open while this process is ongoing.
It has also been reported that gift cards will still be honoured at this time.
The news follows the closure of Jessops last week and HMV calling in the administrators on Monday evening.
