AMERSFOORT, The Netherlands — March 27, 2023 — Due to bankruptcy, all branches of Jan Sikkes — the largest fabric and curtain store in the Netherlands — have closed their doors for good. All the furnishings and a total of one million linear meters of fabric will be offered for sale in 11 multiple online auctions on the Troostwijk Auctions platform. The furnishings and stock of the Jan Sikkes branch in Amersfoort are now under the virtual hammer. The auction closes on Thursday, 30 March 2023 at 10:00 am.
The family business Jan Sikkes was founded in Workum in 1934 and grew into one of the largest fabric stores in the Netherlands with three generations of Sikkes. Because the company believes in the power of the physical store (‘You have to feel fabrics if you want to make the best choice’), Jan Sikkes has no less than 10 branches, spread throughout the country. Due to bankruptcy, all branches have been closed since the beginning of this year. For this reason, the furnishings and stocks of the textile company will be auctioned on the online platform of Troostwijk Auctions.
More than one million linear meters of fabric
Curtain fabric, imitation leather, poplin in various designs twill cotton, bridal fabric, stretch fabric, French terry, jersey and many more types of fabric will be auctioned in lots. The stock of each branch and the Jan Sikkes warehouse will be offered for sale in separate auctions in the near future. These auctions are definitely worthwhile for fabric dealers and other interested parties. From 22 March, the stocks and inventory from the warehouse will also be auctioned.
