Wellington-based PC assembler Macrocom has closed its doors and appointed a liquidator. Both its Auckland and Christchurch offices have also ceased trading.
Liquidator Keith Palmer says it's too early to say what will happen to the chain or its employees.
"We were appointed yesterday so we're still stock taking both literally and figuratively."
Palmer says any user who has a PC from Macrocom that is in the shop for repairs should call their local store to arrange a pick-up.
"The PCs that are in for repair are separate to the company assets so they're all right."
One of the customers affected is Colin Fraser, who bought a Macrocom PC in Auckland six months ago and who discovered the firm had shut up shop when he sought to have it repaired.
Macrocom managing director Alex Al-Azzawi has failed to return Computerworld calls.
