'Bust' dealer could be back in business
GEORGE WHITE could be re-opening their doors for business, although it's likely they'll only be selling clothing and accessories, not motorcycles.
The company, which ceased trading in January, could re-open their Swindon branch under a new name this weekend.
A Visordown reader who was passing the store saw some activity and dropped-in to ask what was going on. He said: "I was passing [the Swindon branch] today, and doors were open, popped in to be nosey, and was told open from next Saturday.... Main showroom all kitted out with clothing, helmets etc.... don't know full circumstances but I believe not just open to shift outstanding stock. Looks like clothing only at present."
The Motorcycle News ran a story yesterday, titled: 'George White puts stock online weeks after folding', however this was then removed from their website due to 'legal issues'.
At the Swindon branch, the main offices and cafe were being stripped out to make more space for retail but there was no sign of any motorcycles on display.
Visordown has contacted George White's administrators, Deloitte but they've yet to provide a statement.
