Are you going to retain location? What's the value of the assets? How attached to the store name?
Just my simple opinion but it seems to me regardless of who has put in what, unless a stipulation of ownership based on percentage invested was involved, a liquidation should be 50-50. I would think if you're trying to retain location, agreeing to get their name off the lease would be sufficient to buy out the name and pay 50% on all physical assets.
