Connecticut Porch & Patio files bankruptcy
May 30, 2006-- Casual Living,
After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in early May, Connecticut Porch & Patio launched a furniture liquidation sale at one of its remaining two stores in Orange and Wethersfield, Conn.
Founded in 1951, Porch & Patio had closed locations over the past year but hoped to reopen one or both of its remaining stores as part of the reorganization, a company spokesman said. The decision to file for Chapter 11 came after the company recently discovered “substantial cash flow and management breakdown problems,” according to a company news release. Ben Fronsaglia, president, Porch & Patio, did not comment on company plans. Among its 20 largest unsecured creditors were outdoor furniture manufacturers Winston Furniture, nearly $107,000; Tropitone, about $95,500; Outdoor Lifestyle, nearly $52,000; Woodard, more than $46,500; Brown Jordan Companies, nearly $45,000; Cebu Imports, nearly $41,000; Panacea Products, nearly $33,000; Whitecraft, nearly $25,000, and umbrella maker Treasure Garden, nearly $57,000. Vendors of fireplaces, gas logs and hearth accessories also were among the largest creditors.
