Problems when in Administration - Land of Leather
Land of Leather are currently in administration. It seems from their website that they are having some issues with their internet service provider as it is now diverting to the DFS website despite it still being entitled www.landofleather.co.uk. Does this indicate a possible outcome for the troubled company? If administration is going to be used to promote a rescue culture it is essential, in the modern age, that companies use the internet to promote their wares, not least to generate new business or to help with the continuance of trade. If customers cannot buy the product then further problems will be generated. Will DFS now be taking customers that would have ordinarily gone to Land of Leather? We are not privy to the corporate structures that exist behind these two well known furniture brands but it will be interesting to see how this administration develops.
