From the desk of Lance Haver, Director of Engagement for Philadelphia City Council.
Did you or someone you know try to buy furniture from Furniture Sir-Plus? Did the store take your money, close down, or refuse to deliver your furniture? You might be able to get a refund.
The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Bureau of Consumer Affairs has reached a settlement with the owners of Furniture Sir-Plus (who also operated a store as King Furniture Warehouse.) The owners will have to pay $75,000 into a fund to return deposits. And while the owners of the store that took deposits until the day before the store closed and never delivered the furniture are barred from operating a furniture store in Pennsylvania, they will not be criminally prosecuted.
It is unclear if there will be enough money for all customers to receive a full refund. If you have lost money to Furniture Sir-Plus, fill out the form as as possible. Do not wait until the last day. If you put the deposit on a credit card, call your credit card company to dispute the charge.
Please share this information. We do not know if everyone who lost money will get a notice that they may be entitled to a refund. And if you need help getting your refund or your credit card company isn’t willing to give you a refund, email me and I will try to help.
