Default So a major dealer goes bust

Just seen that Discover Leisure (used to be Barrons) has gone bust. The
receivers are selling off all the stock.

They had 5 branches in the north. Bought my last caravan 4 years ago from
the Coppull (Chorley) branch. Seemed almost too big to fail - or was that
the problem.

See http://www.discover.co.uk/ for details of the sell off.

Looks like if you have paid a deposit with the wrong sort of method you are
an unsecured creditor.

Not good.

Doubtless there'll be others as well. The Feb. NEC show has been cancelled.
