"Five weeks after it closed its doors, The PC Company re-opened yesterday
selling computer gear at discounted prices from its Hamilton premises.


An Auckland newspaper was told money raised by the sale may be used to pay
former staff, who are angry that they are still owed holiday pay and payment
in lieu of notice almost six weeks after the company stopped trading.

Wages up to the closing date were paid in the first week, the report said.

Major creditors were unaware of the stock sale, which is set to continue for
an indefinite period.

Managing director Colin Brown had promised a "compromise with creditors"
proposal for the end of this week and one creditor has filed a notice to
wind up the firm.

The sale includes a broad range of equipment from monitors to components at
close-to-cost prices. Brown said it was the start of the "disposal process"
and was taking place under legal guidance.

Asked if former staff would receive money from the sale, Brown said: "There
is a set legal priority process of who gets paid."

Twelve Hamilton former staff members have banded together to take legal
action against the firm.

hmm not to shabby. Presumably they imported a lot of the stuff
themselves so there wouldnt be a warranty from a local supplier. Have
they actually advertised this sale yet apart from mentioning it in that
article?
