Additional Complaint Information

According to information the BBB received on June 9, 2004, the company sent the following notice to its customers. "Dear Customer: It is with great regret that The Kid's Village Corp. ("TKV") must inform you that it is closing and going into liquidation. TKV's bank has asserted a claim covering TKV's assets and TKV is currently in the process of liquidating its assets to pay TKV's business loan to the bank. In the event it is learned that your merchandise is in stock and that you are entitled to it ahead of the bank, you will be separately notified that you can come pick up the merchandise. Otherwise, it is unclear at this time whether or not TKV will have funds available after the liquidation process to distribute refunds to customers. At this time, unfortunately, it is unlikely that such refunds will be available. If TKV is in a position to provide a refund, you will be separately notified of this in the future. TKV sincerely regrets any loss that may occur to you and our other customers. Sincerely, The Kid's Village Corp." The company at that time directed questions or concerns regarding business transaction with The Kid's Village, to their representative: David Butler, Attorney Chester, Willcox & Saxbe LLP. 65 E. State St., Columbus, OH 43215 Phone: (614) 221-4000

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business.
