Komplett closes retail ops across Europe

Some portals still shining a light, mind

Online computer components retailer Komplett ASA has pulled the plug on several of its European websites.

The Norway-based firm today shut down a number of its operations across Europe, including its British, French and German websites.

The channel outfit, which has 16 internet shops in 10 countries, posted the following statement at Komplett.co.uk:

As of 24 June 2008, Komplett.co.uk has closed down its UK operations. We regret to inform you that it is no longer possible for UK customers to make any purchases from Komplett.co.uk anymore.

We value the customers who bought products from us in the past. Therefore – for the time being, our UK customer service will remain available for enquiries and warranty questions on products bought from Komplett.co.uk. You can contact our customer service department by sending an e-mail to: service@komplett.co.uk. We will do our utmost to answer any e-mail within 2 working days.

The firm’s German, French and Austrian websites have also closed and are carrying similar statements about Komplett's demise.

It is not clear at this stage whether the company plans to close its remaining websites in Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

No one at Komplett, including the firm's CEO Ole Vinje, could be immediately reached for comment at time of writing. ®
