Franchise holders in the collapsed Furniture Express business are threatening court action to free themselves from their contracts.
A month after the business – formerly Durham Pine – plunged into administration for the second time, its franchisees are crying foul over the company’s declining fortunes hurting their businesses.
The franchisees were already angry about what they claim was a lack of service – and profile – provided by the previous management.
But now administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers have sold the franchise contracts previously held by Furniture Express to a new company called Cobco 808 set up in Halifax, West Yorkshire.
The franchisees say this company does not have the infrastructure or experience to operate the franchises to best effect – yet they are still obliged to continue on the same terms as when Durham Pine was a nationwide, Â£65m turnover business with a well known brand.
