Some of our readers may have heard the news that Hein Gericke UK is closing down. This includes the two shops here in Northern Ireland.
The official notice on the Hein Gericke UK website in bold headlines says, “Closing Down – Everything Must Be Sold – Everything Reduced”, however on the same website it states, “Hein Gericke UK is now trading in administration whilst the future of the UK operation is determined and hopefully secured.”
Hein Gericke UK entered into Administration on 30 July 2012 and the UK administrators, Moorfields Corporate Recovery are “Looking to hear from interested parties and are currently marketing the business.” so maybe there is a chance of survival in whatever form, if a buyer can be found.
I can remember the Hein Gericke shop opening in Belfast with Big Dave in charge. I can’t remember the year but it seems like an age ago.
My experience at the shop from then to the present day has always been a “happy shopper” one, not just for clothing but all the other bits and pieces they sell, which I am sure, is the same in the newer store at Newry.
Both shops have their own Facebook pages and a Facebook page for the Newry shop has been set up to “Save Our Shop”.
You can go onto Facebook and like the page.
In these difficult financial times, we at Right To Ride, hope that the shops and more importantly the staff – the people – come out the other side of these difficult times successfully.
