Furniture Store In FOX 29 Investigates Report Settles With Pa., Paying $75K

PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - A FOX 29 investigation played a big role in helping consumers get what they paid for from a troubled Philadelphia furniture store.

Our FOX 29 Investigates report in June documented the complaints of customers who spent thousands but never got their furniture.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office sued Furniture Sir-Plus in July, claiming the store took money but didn't deliver the goods.

On Friday, Attorney General Kathleen Kane issued a news release announcing a settlement with the owners of the Lancaster Avenue retailer.

Furniture Sir-Plus will put $75,000 into a fund to pay-back consumers who were left holding the bag.

The attorney general claims the owners of Furniture Sir-Plus never told customers the store was closing and took payments for goods up until the day they closed.

After FOX 29 Investigates documented the concerns of customers, the attorney general's office repeatedly urged us to provide customers with information on how to file complaints with their office, so we did.

Under the settlement, two of the store owners may never operate a furniture business in Pennsylvania again.

Customers have 60 days to file a complaint with the attorney general if they haven't already.
