Cuckoo to close from March 2018

Published on: January 30th, 2018

Tony Eves said the supplier is closing down through its own choice, and staff and suppliers will be paid in full.

Tony, founder of Cuckoo, commented:

“It is with a sense of satisfaction tinged with a little sadness that I am announcing that as of the 31st March 2018 I will be closing the doors of Cuckoo Ltd for the last time.

As there is no one in my immediate family who would like to continue to take the business forward and with the lease on my warehouse coming to an end, not to mention a quote from one of the Cuckoo guys fifteen years ago (we’re not getting any younger you know) it seems like a logical time to call it a day and chill.

I started my life in sales in 1972 (a fair shift I think) so, have seen quite a few developments in retail, especially as my first job on the road was supplying record shops with posters of rock and pop stars.

I’ve been incredibly fortunate to work with some really fantastic people, from our suppliers round the world and in the UK, our people at Cuckoo and of course the people who made it possible, the customers, all of whom I thank.

I will be at Spring Fair for a couple of days as a visitor to meet with old friends and to thank the many great customers who have supported Cuckoo over the past thirty years.”
