The liquidation sale for the Wellesley-based Ski Market chain, which recently filed for bankruptcy protection, started today at 7 locations.
The company’s sudden downfall has angered shoppers, in particular those who were given gift certificates shortly before the company declared bankruptcy and then told they couldn’t use them or that the cards would only be worth half their original value.
Meanwhile, I was talking to a friend who had rented snowboards for her 3 kids over the winter from Ski Market, only to be told once the bankruptcy filing took place that she wouldn’t get her hefty deposit back…but that she could keep the rental gear. Smartly, she went to VISA and explained the situation to them, and they covered the deposit.
