Although the online shoe retailer Surf4shoes GmbH had to file for bankruptcy on September 8th, nothing will change for the customers for the time being. “The business operations of Surf4shoes will be continued in full. New orders in the online shop are still possible. All customers will be supplied as usual,” provisional insolvency administrator Michael Pluta announced in a statement on Monday.
Together with his team, the lawyer had previously obtained “an initial overview of the situation of the e-commerce company” and, together with the management of Surf4shoes, had “numerous discussions with business partners”, explained the law firm Pluta Rechtsanwalts GmbH.
The company based in Bitz, Baden-Württemberg, which most recently achieved annual sales of over 50 million euros, is now hoping for a successful restructuring: “Our employees are motivated and support the continuation of business operations. The team will provide the provisional administrator with the best possible support over the coming weeks. Our goal is a viable solution for the future of the company,” said the management of Surf4shoes, according to a statement. According to Pluta, the salaries of the 17 employees of the online retailer are “secured for three months via the insolvency money”.
