The article reports that one of Leeds main retail parks has seen a reshuffle of furniture retailers, sparked by the demise of Courts. ScS Corp. has taken the store previously occupied by Courts on the West Yorkshire Retail Park, with Barker and Stonehouse & Co. combining its existing store with ScS's former unit next door. Furnitureland Inc. has also agreed to take a unit on the 130,000 square feet park, joining Harveys, Currys, Furniture Village and TGI Friday's Inc. Eight-store Yorkshire chain John Peters had hoped to replace Courts, but was unable to reach agreement with the administrator KPMG.
