Remnant Kings: ‘nil income’

Fabric supplier Remnant Kings, a prominent name in Scottish haberdashery for 74 years, has collapsed with the loss of 32 jobs.

Established in 1946, the company operated a chain of stores across central Scotland together with an online service selling fabric for curtains, blinds, soft furnishings, dressmaking and quilting to the general public, small business and local authorities. 

It operated from three leased premises, located in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Hamilton. 

Historically profitable, the company has suffered from declining turnover and trading difficulties in recent years caused by changing consumer habits and the recent coronavirus outbreak.

The directors sought to address the financial issues via the closure of loss making stores as part of a business restructure last autumn.
