A FAMILY-RUN furniture retailer has gone bust with multiple jobs at risk. 

Based in Glasgow, Morale Home Furnishings is a retailer of furniture and homewares, as well as garden furniture and accessories.

The company, which is run by businessman Khalid Ali and his family, was reportedly impacted by customers moving to lower-priced alternatives, including those retailers which predominantly sell online.

The company employs six employees, all of which will be retained while the company is in administration.

Blair Nimmo and Alistair McAlinden from Interpath Advisory were appointed joint administrators to Morale Home Furnishings UK Limited on February 28 2024.

Following their appointment, the joint administrators announced they will continue to trade the business for a period, and as such, have commenced a closing down sale at the store in the Hillington Industrial Estate, Glasgow.

The sale will initially see discounts of at least 30% off RRP on all stock, and up to 60% off RRP on selected lines on display furniture straight from the showroom.

Alistair McAlinden, head of Interpath Advisory in Scotland and joint administrator, said: “As consumers continue to tighten their belts as a result of the cost-of-living crisis, retailers of big-ticket items and similar considered purchases continue to come under significant pressure."

Alistair McAlinden added: “Our intention is to trade the business for a short period while we seek to sell all remaining stock, so would encourage customers to visit the store over the coming days, where Morale’s team of dedicated employees will be available to assist.”
