Computer Warehouse considering liquidation

All staff at Apple reseller made redundant

Apple reseller Computer Warehouse UK  could be placed in liquidation next month.

UPDATE: Syco Systems has now announced that it has acquired the retail division of Computer Warehouse.

Computer Warehouse, which celebrated its 21st anniversary last year, last week instructed MLG Associates to review which of its assets could be sold off, ahead of the possibility of placing the company in liquidation.

According to MLG Associates' Mike Grieshaber, who is handling the case, once the various components of the business have been sold, any debts incurred by the company will be settled.

Grieshaber said any customers that have purchased items from Computer Warehouse should have their order fulfilled via the companies that purchase the reseller's assets.

He also confirmed that all of Computer Warehouse's staff were made redundant at the end of last week.

Computer Warehouse is an authorised reseller of Apple computers, software and other devices such as iPods.

Computer Warehouse - along with professional divisions, CWPro (Professional Audio and Video) and TSC (machinery for musicians) expanded into a new 18,500 square feet purpose-built studio and demonstration facility in Park Royal as recently as September 2009.

"The company has changed significantly over the last year and this move complements everything we are doing with the direction of the company, of course many of our higher profile clients in the music industry will also benefit from the new facilities," said Chairman and CEO Jonathan Cole at the time.

The company was also reported as building a real Computer Warehouse - an extended showroom facility - within the new warehouse aimed at retail customers.

In 2005 Computer Warehouse was behind the UK's first dedicated iPod store. The first popXpress opened in November 2005 in New Street, a side road off Bishopsgate, directly opposite London's Liverpool Street station and right in the heart of the city.
