Discover Leisure in Administration

16 October 2011

Discover Leisure, the Yorkshire-based caravan and motorhome retailer, has gone into administration with the 250 staff uncertain to their future.  It is anticipated that a number of jobs will be lost.

Last week we blogged that the firm was unable to secure new funds going forward and its shares were suspended.  So it is perhaps inevitable that the company ultimately failed. 

In a statement, the administrators at KPMG said: “The directors recently sought investment in an attempt to keep the business trading, however, their efforts proved unsuccessful.”

The company has been hit by consumers’ reigning in their spending on large purchases.
