Peppermint closes after entering liquidation

Independent retailer Peppermint has ceased trading, following the voluntary appointment of liquidator Hudson Weir on 8 March 2019.

Peppermint – which was trading as Peppermint Designer Kids – had four London stores and an online retail service which offered a wide range of nursery products. It also maintained a high-profile partnership with a number of consumer baby shows.

The liquidator’s statement of affairs shows trade creditors at £403,725.29, with a total creditor balance of £749,819.34.

The list of trade creditors was publicly filed on 21 March 2019 as part of a statement of affairs, following standard procedure.

A formal letter has been sent to all creditors notifying them of the situation and all social media has been taken down following the announcement.

All figures are correct at the time of publication.
