Another Popular Retailer Now Files For An Unexpected Bankruptcy

Another popular retailer now files for an unexpected bankruptcy after blaming the covid pandemic for its failure.

Ruby-Gordon Home, which has operated in upstate New York for nearly 100 years, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. 

“We’ve been struggling to recover since 2020. Unfortunately, in the last eight months, too much went sideways in too short an amount of time.

Klaussner going out the way they did was the straw that broke our back,” owner and CEO Aaron Ruby told Furniture Today.

“We’re hoping that Chapter 11 gives us a chance at having a future, we’re just not certain exactly what that will look like.”

Klaussner is a furniture maker that closed abruptly in August.

The bankruptcy left its customers with unfilled orders that, in some cases, they had already paid for.

Ruby-Gordon has been a fixture in and around Rochester, N.Y. 

“With a history dating back to 1936, we are committed to bringing the best designs and best customer service to our customers.

We are a third generation, family-owned furniture store with a passion for making your space a home,” the company shared on its website. 

In the Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, Ruby-Gordon listed an estimated $1,000,001 to $10 million in total assets with $1,000,001 to $10 million in total liabilities to an estimated 100 to 199 creditors.

The climate for selling furniture is not expected to improve quickly.

That’s because unlike electronics, which have a 2-4 year replacement cycle, most furniture has a longer cycle. 

That means that the demand that pulled forward during the pandemic won’t come back after a bad year or two.

It could take much longer.

That puts already struggling companies like Wayfair at significant risk of bankruptcy, reports TheStreet.
