Henderson Jewellers in the Triangle Shopping Centre in Bishopbriggs has closed.

Five members of staff have lost their jobs at Henderson the Jewellers in Bishopbriggs after the company went into liquidation.

Established in Coatbridge in 1886, Henderson had 14 branches throughout Scotland and employed 79 staff, the vast majority of which have been made redundant.

The Bishopbriggs branch, which has been in the community for many years, has closed.

Brian Milne, from French Duncan, has been appointed as provisional liquidator of Ketling Limited, the business that since last October traded as Henderson the Jeweller.

He said: “I plan to initiate a thorough assessment of the circumstances leading up to the liquidation, though it would seem that Henderson has fallen victim to the challenging trading conditions that the economic downturn has imposed on many retailers over recent years.

“It is particularly regrettable, given Henderson’s long history, that it has fallen into liquidation.”
