Employees at Furniture Mountain also claim bosses then shut down their numbers so they could not be contacted.

Meanwhile, some customers say they have been left out of pocket.

According to Companies House, Furniture Mountain as a company was dissolved in February 2016, with David Chillas listed as a former director and Jack Chillas listed as a former secretary. David and Jack Chillas are listed as directors for Pine Warehouse Ltd.

When contacted, Jack Chillas acknowledged staff would be disgruntled, but declined to answer questions over the fulfilment of existing orders.
