A company that was founded in post-war Rickmansworth is auctioning millions of pounds’ worth of stock after it entered liquidation.
The seeds of the bicycle distributing company Moore Large were planted in 1947, when John H. Moore opened his first bike shop in Rickmansworth. From the outset, the Moore family’s ambition was to supply bicycles “across all spectrums, with a principal focus on exceptional customer service and great value”.
After three generations and 75 years, the institution was sold in a multi-million-pound buyout.
In March, however, less than a year after the takeover, the company announced it had been forced to cease trading.
Auctioneers John Pye confirmed that they have been instructed to sell the entirety of the Moore Large stock inventory of bikes and accessories. The remaining stock is estimated to be valued in the region of £35million.
