Furniture Barn calls in administrators

Market Harborough-based furniture and home accessories firm The Furniture Barn has slipped into administration.

Nigel Hamilton-Smith and Geoff Rowley of FRP Advisory were appointed as administrators on Friday, with the aim of selling the business.

The Furniture Barn has eight outlets; two in Market Harborough, and one in Grantham, Doncaster, Kidderminster, Sheffield, Sutton Coldfield and Thurrock.

A spokesman for FRP Advisory said: “The Furniture Barn continues to trade while the joint administrators market the business for sale and engage with interested parties.

“The joint administrators have retained all staff while they service orders and liaise with customers and suppliers.

“This is a business with a long history of trading and a loyal customer base.

“We have made early progress in ensuring our ability to continue to purchase furniture and meet customer demand.”
