Kaufman’s to File for Bankruptcy

While many customers knew Kaufman’s was closing its doors last week, not until last night did the news appear that Lance Kaufman, the company’s owner, would file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection. Laura Gunderson broke the story in The Oregonian: “In a Groupon daily deal last month, 682 people bought $47 gift certificates for a six-hour fly-fishing class that was typically priced at $95. And, after a story in The Oregonian last week about Kaufmann’s abrupt closure, a dozen customers responded with questions about future trips they’d already paid for, hundreds of dollars worth of gift cards they’d saved in hopes of buying certain gear or fly-fishing classes they’d bought but hadn’t yet taken.”
