Komplett UK Closes Its Virtual Doors

Easy come easy go, or so the saying has it. It's certainly a mantra Komplett's UK branch might have in mind at the moment, having just announced that as of today, the 24th of June 2008, it will no longer be taking orders from UK customers.

The message on the site reads as follows:

"To all visitors of 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.

Regards,

Komplett.co.uk."

The news isn't all bad for Komplett itself, as so far as we can gather it will still be selling in on the continent, in such countries as Holland, Denmark and Norway. Indeed the company as a whole is, if you look at the published figures, entirely profitable.

For UK customers, though, it's a bad omen.

With Rock entered into administration and widespread rumour that PC e-tailers in general are starting to feel the pinch, we can't help but wonder who's going to be next.

I once bought a PC from Komplett. It turned out later to be faulty but they fully refunded me.


Nothing to do with them going out of business, but this story reminded me of that purchase. Anyway, they were always slightly more expensive then the competition - it looks like it will soon come down to survival of the cheapest/fittest.

This is a shame. I've used Komplett a few times for various x86 parts and never had a problem with them. They had a great range of S939 CPU stock a long time after most other retailers ran out and switched to AM2 stock.
