Top-Toy has gone bankrupt, and thereby closing the vast majority of the chain's outlets, the Cousin of BR and Toys'R'Us down with immediate effect, informs the company.
- It will be such that the 53 shops in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Iceland will remain open until 31. december. The bankruptcy means that we do not give money back, as well as that the gift cards and the Cousin of BR-brands, unfortunately, are worthless, says Lars Bo Kirk, acting spokesman from the Top-Toy to Ekstra Bladet.
in return you will be able to exchange one item for another, says Lars Bo Kirk, but you have the gift card or the Cousin of BR-brands lying, is the right to throw out. And it is not so much to do, says the Consumer council Think.
- It has the unfortunately entitled. Private consumers is, unfortunately, pretty bad off when it comes to bankruptcies, and therefore, the rule at the rear of the konkurskøen, when the liquidator shall distribute the values.
- one Will have money back on a gift card, you sign his claim to the liquidator, but the probability speaks for the fact that there are very few money back (when the administrator has paid to the other creditors, ed.), and therefore it will typically be a small price, you will get out of it, says Vagn Jelsøe, deputy director of the Consumer council Think.
When a company is bankrupt, the trustee shall distribute the funds between the creditors. And here it is actually unusual that some stores are open for business.
I must admit, that this construction (which some stores after the bankruptcy is open, red.) I have never been out before. But I interpret it such that they are declared bankruptcy, and all that is about to swap one item for another, they can deal with, but when it comes to handing over money, then it becomes an interference in the bankruptcy estate.
- It (some shops are open, so you can exchange goods, red.) is actually a good service in relation to that it is a bankruptcy.

you Are lucky that you have bought their gift cards with certain international debit card, however, you get his money home, says Vagn Jelsøe.
- It is the case that with many international credit card for example MasterCard, so the typical credit card must be associated with a bankruptcy insurance, and so will you be able to turn to MasterCard and say that you have lost 500 dollars on a bankruptcy, for example. And then they will cover it.
however, There are also other aspects of the bankruptcy proceedings - for example, what you do, if you have had the goods for repair in either the Cousin of BR or Toys'R'Us, and they still are inside with your PlayStation.
- You can also be affected by the bankruptcy, if you have bought something, where there is an error. Usually you will be able to go down to the store and get it repaired or replaced, but it can be usually not with a bankruptcy. If it is the case that you have had something to repair due to an effect, and you have not yet got it to be delivered, so you go to a chain and require to get your PlayStation to them.
- It is not certain that it has been repaired, but since it is your property, have you in fact claim to get the extradition, says Vagn Jelsøe.
