John Pye appointed to sell Made.com furniture stock
Administrators to Made.com have appointed John Pye Auctions to put the failed furniture retailer’s stock to the market.
All of the UK stock from Made.com is included in the inventory, which comprises several thousands of upholstery, home furniture, outdoor and leisure, home accessory and lighting items.
Adam Pye, managing director at John Pye, said: “As with any insolvency of a great British brand such as Made.com, there are always the tragedies of redundancies and loss. It is John Pye Auction’s role to realise the best we can for all creditors of the company. Thanks to our long-standing partnership with Made.com Design Limited, we have a customer base who are familiar with buying this type of stock, so we hope to be able to realise a positive return for creditors.”
Earlier this year, the company worked with administrators for Sofa Workshop on the sale of ex-display showroom stock and a range of furniture and homewares, including 800 sofas.
Trevor Palethorpe, joint head of John Pye business and property, added: “While it is an incredibly difficult situation, it does also present buyers with the rare opportunity to bypass industry-wide, growing wait times for furniture delivery. Made.com enthusiasts and customers have the chance to add new home pieces and buy furniture of the highest quality, at bargain prices, just in time for Christmas.”
