The summer failure of Yorkshire pine and oak cabinet furniture maker and retailer Heartland Interiors left 800 consumers facing the threat of lost deposits, new filings show.

Their cash — which was collectively worth nearly £497,773, or an average of £622 per customer — represented the vast majority of the business' expected creditor shortfall of £868,257.

Jonathan Lord of insolvency firm Bridgestones was appointed liquidator of Heartland Interiors on July 10.

Customers who paid with credit cards should be able to recover their money, though debit card and any cash-paying customers may find it harder.

Based in Driffield, where it had its factory showroom, Heartland Interiors manufactured both pine and oak standalone furniture as well as made-to-measure pieces, selling it direct to the public.
