Deathwatch - EasyLiving Furniture in administration
As stores add up the cost of poor trading during a severe winter combined with nationwide frugality, we're seeing a new rash of retail stores struggling to stay afloat. Here's another, the second we've had on Deathwatch today - EasyLiving Furniture have now gone belly up.
A statement on their website says the company went into administration last Wednesday; the administrators claim that they need several days to assess the situation, after which time they'll be contacting customers who paid deposits. The statement also says that a dedicated website will be set up in due course, although what function it will provide isn't clear.
EasyLiving Furniture had 18 stores and concessions across the South of England, with a head office in Swindon.
