.: Crabtree & Evelyn :.

Another victim of the recession....

Crabtree & Evelyn has filled for bankrupcy protection under Section 11. This is the same bankruptcy protection that GM has filed exactly a month ago. Read here.

Crabtree and Evelyn was founded in 1973 as a family business and then turned into an international business with branches in Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, France and other countries including Malaysia - with 7 branches ; 6 located within the KL city center and 1 in Gurney Drive, Penang.

Known for their rich English apothecary English tradition and fine living, Crabtree & Evelyn offers products ranging from bath & shower gel, body moisturiser, hand care & foot care products. I got as a Christmas gift a Summer Hill Hand Therapy Cream and I love the smell of blended fresh grass, orchard fruits and wildflowers. And the best thing is that the fragrance last for a very very long time.

Well, it is such a shame that this company is not spared from the economic downturn. I guess we shall see if this company could still be revived after their planned restructuring. But if not, there will likely be a closing down sale with great bargains out there.

One man's loss, is another woman's gain!

Am not so sure the one in M'sia, but if I recall correctly, the one in US was the one that filed for protection.

But I am sure if your main company goes down, all will go down as well?
