Tree Classics, Inc. has closed; TreeClassics.com reopened September 19, 2011 under new management
To Loyal Tree Classics, Inc. Customers:
We are sorry to announce that as of January 20, 2011, Tree Classics, Inc. ("TCI"), also known as Triumph International, Inc. went out of business. After being hit hard by the 2008 recession, the business was never able to recover financially. On or about January 20, 2011,TCI effectuated an assignment for the benefit of creditors pursuant to an agreement between TCI and John Wheeler, not individually but as assignee for the benefit of creditors of TCI (the "Trustee") whereby TCI's assets were assigned to the Trustee. TCI's liabilities remain with TCI. The assignment for the benefit of creditors is similar to Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In February 2011, the Trustee conducted an auction of TCI's assets and Heavenly Holidays, LLC ("Heavenly Holidays") was the successful bidder and purchaser of those assets.
Founded in 1976, Tree Classics, Inc., had a long history of providing fine artificial Christmas trees to the American market. In 1998, Tree Classics™ pioneered the sales of artificial Christmas trees on the Internet and quickly became the market leader. With this rich history in mind, Heavenly Holidays has acquired TCI's assets (includingTreeClassics.com) with the intention of rebuilding the name "Tree Classics" as the high quality market leader in artificial Christmas trees. On September 19, 2011 we reopened TreeClassics.com with an all new look and feel as well as a new lineup of the finest artificial Christmas trees on the market. Please note that the retail store of TCI in Chicago/Barrington is no longer in operation. In addition, there are no Tree Classics showroom locations at this time.
For those of you who are former TCI customers, we welcome you back to TreeClassics.com and believe that starting in Fall 2011 you will once again find the quality and value that you expect from TreeClassics.com. We are excited to offer an entirely new lineup of products this year and hope that you will be as impressed with them as we are. Regrettably, for those of you who have a refund or warranty claim with a TCI product purchased before January 20, 2011, Heavenly Holidays is unable to refund or service your tree. If you believe you are entitled to a refund or have a warranty service or other claim against TCI, you may
have legal rights.
As part of the rebirth of Tree Classics, Heavenly Holidays has the following initiative to assist former TCI customers. Although we do not have parts to repair TCI trees, we have been able to source
replacement light bulbs for the "worry free" lights used in many trees from 2007-2010.
This program is offered solely as a courtesy by Heavenly Holidays and will not impinge upon any legal rights you may have with TCI.
Thank you for your understanding. Heavenly Holidays is committed to earning back your trust as we strive to build the finest artificial Christmas tree brand, Tree Classics!
