Customers will be offered assistance with warranty issues, and credit for unexpired EdXtra membership fees

Richer Sounds has bought the website of failed retailer Empire Direct from administrators KPMG.

The company says it is "inviting former Empire Direct customers to join its highly popular VIP club and is planning a package of benefits including assisting customers with the manufacturer's warranty on most audio-visual products previously purchased from Empire Direct for all brands that Richer Sounds currently stocks.

"As a further gesture to previous Empire customers, Richer Sounds will also be giving a credit by way of Richer Sounds credit vouchers on any un-expired EdXtra membership fees paid. It has also set up a help page to assist former customers where this is possible.

"In addition, former Empire Direct customers will be entitled to special offers available to Richer Sounds VIP club members."
