Huddersfield independent furniture store Lindsays Furniture Mill has issued one final notice of its closing down sale, as the company prepares to shift all remaining stock before closing for good.

Cabinet Maker reported back in January 2016 that the store announced its intentions to close after more than 40 years.

Posted on the company’s website, a notice read: “After more than 40 years in business we have taken the sad decision to permanently close Lindsays @HomeMills.

“The clock is now ticking before we close our doors for good so that the contractors can begin their work. We have just emptied out the entire contents of another warehouse and transported it to our store.”

The family business, based on Britannia Road, invested £500,000 in a major revamp to the store and showroom, as well as re-branding to @HomeMills, but decided to close its doors due to a slump in trade.

The company, which is run by Ashley Lindsay, managing director of Lindsays Allsorts Ltd, has been winding down its operations since the end of December last year.

Commenting earlier this year, Ashley said: “The company has not performed as well as we hoped over the last year and we are moving to a simpler business model. We are becoming landlords which will give me time to work on other projects.”
