Barratts In Administration

Recommended Posts

Trouble with Barratts is that it was not only rubbish quality that would fall to bits in a few days, but they tried to peddle this stuff at between 15-20 quid. At the price I could almost get a pair of Clarks in the sale that would last 6-9 miles at my walking 60 miles week. If I want cheap crap I will get it from Primark. Indeed I am currently wearing a pair of pumps I bought from Primark at £2.90 because the Clarks are buggered and I am waiting for the sales.

It's the 3rd time they have gone into Administration.

This seems wrong somehow, what is wrong with this country when companies can just wrotye off their debts and re-start like nothing has happened ?

Someone needs a good kick in the Ghillies.

I think it was the smell of plastic and glue that put people off....leather has a distinctive odour that never comes from many of the shoe shops now. ;)

Sadly not the slavebox-builder. Still, the boot will be on the other foot sometime.

Yeah, such a shame it wasn't them.

I get really confused when I read about these company administrations. I thought they'd gone a long while back. Same with Blockbuster. How long can companies keep on doing this?

This is their 3rd time and probably final on this occasion.

It is also relatively early for a retailer to hit the wall as there are 7 weeks to quarter day when the rent would traditionally be due. I wonder how many more will go as well. Possibly an indication they couldn't get stock due to credit insurance issues?
