CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A north Charlotte furniture store closed suddenly.
The door of Atlantic Bedding and Furniture on W. WT Harris Boulevard was locked Monday.
There were two numbers on the door. One number had an outdated message, while the other went to voicemail, but the mailbox was full.
Three customers agreed to meet Action 9 investigator Jason Stoogenke at the business Monday.
The customers said they paid money but the store still had to deliver some or all of their items. They said they can’t get in contact with the business and haven’t been able to for about two weeks.
They want their furniture or their money back.
“I’m disappointed,” said Ametra Morris, who lost about $200.
A lot of times customers are out the money, but the best defense is to pay with credit card. It gives customers more recourse than cash or debit.
“I’m just upset as a consumer. I mean, times are hard,” said Keva Phillips, who lost about $900. “I just don’t know how I feel. I spent my money and all I wanted was my bed to sleep on.”
Stoogenke found out that Atlantic Bedding is based in Charleston, South Carolina. Action 9 called the office in Charleston, and the person he spoke with said the Charlotte store was independently-owned.
To contact the company, call 1-797-6180 Ext. 102.
