Liquidators said Millers at Midmar forced to close after failing to secure a buyer
An Aberdeenshire farm shop and visitor centre has gone into liquidation with the loss of 40 jobs.
Appointed liquidator Johnston Carmichael said Millers at Midmar, which has been in business for 25 years, had suffered a downturn in trade and had been unable to attract new investment or a buyer to save the business.
The business launched a closing down sale on Thursday.
Property agent Ryden had been marketing the 23,000 sq. ft property, including retail space, a restaurant and warehouse, since July.
Appointed provisional liquidator, Gordon MacLure, said: “A downturn in trading and unsuccessful attempts to find additional investors or a buyer for the company, Muiryhall Limited which trades as Millers Restaurant and Visitors Centre, has resulted in the decision to shortly close the business, resulting in over 40 redundancies.
“All stock remaining at Millers will be sold at discounted prices during the company’s closing down sale which will start on Thursday, August 30.”
