Denmark's largest konceptkæde with the covers and accessories for smartphones, tablets and computers are Friday gone bankrupt.
the Company WeCoverYou has about 60 employees. All now stand to lose their jobs if the company is not sold.
- We are struggling right now everything we can, to sell the company, so our staff can keep their jobs, says Johnny Nielsen, who is the owner of the company.
WeCoverYou was started in 2013 and has 11 stores around the country. Three of the outlets are, however, under the so-called franchisekontrakter and is thus not directly covered by bankruptcy proceedings.
the Court in Odense has on Friday appointed konkursadvokat Morten Bjerregaard from the Cox law Firm as liquidator of the company, which operates the chain WeCoverYou. The liquidator's task is now to minimise the loss to creditors.
- We are working hard to find an overall buyer to take over so many of the stores as possible, and we have already been approached by several potential buyers, including well-known brands. When it comes to on retail bankruptcy, it is crucial that a purchase be made as quickly as possible - but when we finish a trade, I can not comment on, says the curator Morten Bjerregaard to Ekstra Bladet.

Johnny Nielsen dream also, though, to be an active part of the company if it were to be sold.
- I hope-of course, that all of my employees can keep their jobs, but I would also like to be even with, if the company were to be sold. Maybe as a project manager, he says.
Johnny Nielsen has been running the company in collaboration with his wife, and also know about all his employees well.
- It certainly has not been fun having to tell them about the bankruptcy, but I chose to do it personally. They took it very nicely, though of course they are nervous for their jobs.
Despite the bankruptcy is the shopping in these large centres in Odense, Aalborg, Kolding and Herning remain open, and here customers can make a bargain with 50 percent on everything. Gift certificates purchased before Friday, may unfortunately no longer be addressed, but can be notified in the bankruptcy estate via the Cox law firm's website.
