Somerset footwear firm Ted & Muffy in administration, buyer sought

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 | ADMINISTRATION

Administrators appointed to collapsed Somerset-based footwear Ted & Muffy, which recently made 11 of its 38 staff redundant, are looking for a buyer for the business.

The firm, formerly known as Duo, sells high-quality boots and shoes which are all made from its studio and offices in Frome. It has a physical store in Bath and a “major” online presence, selling to customers around the world.

Administrators Begbies Traynor have been appointed to find a buyer for The Blink Partnership Ltd, which trades as Ted & Muffy.

The firm, which will continue to trade while a buyer is found, was said to have performed well under previous ownership but had been adversely affected by mild autumn trading and a major rebranding two years ago.

Ian Walker, partner at Begbies Traynor’s office in Exeter, said: “In April 2016, Ted & Muffy was rescued out of administration by The Blink Partnership Ltd.

“However, unfortunately sales haven’t reached expectations and the business has no alternative but to find a new buyer.

“The business will continue to trade while a new buyer is being sought, and meanwhile there are no significant arrears of creditors.”

Anyone interested in buying the business is urged to come forward “as quickly as possible”.
