A blinds and shutter firm which had a showroom in Glasgow’s East End has ceased trading.

Zone at Home published a statement on its website confirming that its stores in Glasgow’s City Park Industrial Estate and Wishaw are now closed.

Customers are being advised that any outstanding orders “will not be completed”.

The statement from the company goes on to add that “steps are currently being taken” to appoint a liquidator and customers will be contacted “in due course”.

It reads: “We regret to advise you that Zone at Home Ltd has ceased trading. Our stores in Wishaw and Glasgow are now closed.

“Unfortunately, any outstanding orders, fittings, or repairs will not be completed or fulfilled. Steps are currently being taken to appoint a liquidator to deal with the winding up of the company.

“Customers/creditors will therefore be contacted by the liquidator in due course. We offer our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.”

Mr Lindsay served as company director for more than four years, resigning on June 16, 2024.  

Craig Dunlop was also appointed as director of the firm on April 6, 2022.

Mr Dunlop is still listed on the Company House website as director.

In March 2020, we reported that Glasgow firm City Blinds & Shutters – which Mr Dunlop was the manager of alongside Daniel Ferrie - had ceased trading as a result of the coronavirus lockdown.

More than 60 employees at the blinds company lost their jobs.

Mr Ferrie is not involved with Zone at Home.

Bosses at City Blinds & Shutters pinned the blame on the “disgusting” lack of clarity over government measures to save jobs during the pandemic.

At the time, following the latest government advice on social distancing, the firm stopped visiting people’s homes to measure, sell, and fit blinds – meaning they were unable to generate income.

They also closed down their showroom and attempted to put staff on furlough through the Business Interruption 80 per cent Guarantee Loan Scheme.

But they said that their application to their bank – Lloyds Banking Group – for the loan scheme was declined.

According to the Company House website, Mr Dunlop was also appointed as the managing director of Glasgow-based company City Blindmakers Ltd on December 20, 2018.

Mr Ferrie was appointed as sales director of this firm on December 20, 2018.

It has since been dissolved. 

The Glasgow Times has made several attempts to contact Zone at Home for comment.
