Furniture boutique announces closure after nearly 30 years in Aberdeen

Dargie Design is closing its doors after 27 years on John Street.
Dargie Design is closing its doors after 27 years on John Street.

A family-run furniture shop has announced it closing after nearly 30 years in Aberdeen.

Dargie Designs, on John Street, opened in 1992 and offered customers a range of products from luxury suppliers across Europe.

Set up by brothers Keith and David Dargie, the business became well-known for its statement furniture in vibrant colours and attentive customer service.

But in a statement released online, the business has announced its closure.

“It is with deep regret that we have taken the decision to close the business,” it said.

“Firstly, we would like to thank all our customers past and present for their custom over the years.

“As a family business we have had a variety of serious illness issues over the last few years and it has now become unsustainable to provide the kind of service that we know our customers deserve – something has to give.

“Brexit has been an ongoing issue and has had a huge deterimental effect.

“All existing outstanding customer orders will be fulfilled by the relevant manufacturers. They will be in touch when your goods are ready, just pay your balance directly to them.

“We have always taken the shop to our home – we are crushed.

“Thank you for the last 27 years, it’s been emotional.”

Staff declined to comment further when asked but customers were quick to express their sadness at the news.

One loyal customer, Wendy Leighton, said: “So sorry to hear this. We have shopped with you for 20+ years. You will be missed by all your customers.”

Another, Kelly Stewart wrote: “So sorry to read this. We’ve shopped with you over the years and love the modern and unique pieces you sell. Service has always been first class. You will be a huge loss to the area, but wishing the Dargie family all the best for the future.”
