Who’s taking over the Bad Boy business? Nooobody!

Bad Boy Furniture has entered bankruptcy protection in an effort to restructure its business. The Toronto-area furniture and appliance retailer was (in)famous for decades for its TV ads that featured old-time hustle and bravado, with endless variations on the slogan: “Who’s better than Bad Boy? Nooobody!”

Now, faced with high interest rates and a slowed housing market, Bad Boy has filed a notice of intention proposal under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act. Faced with $13.7 million in debt, the company has appointed Infinity Asset Solutions to oversee the total liquidation of its entire inventory, valued at $25 million.
