Additional Complaint Information

According to information supplied by the firm to the Pittsburgh BBB, Northeast's parent firm, The Appliance Store, began business in 1977. The Pittsburgh BBB opened its file on the parent firm in 1983. Northeast Appliance is also known as Northeast Superstore. On April 7, 1992, Northeast Appliance filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Federal Bankruptcy Act, case number 92-1574 JLC. This permitted the company to continue to operate with court supervision while developing a plan for reorganization. However, in December 1992, the firm filed to liquidate its assets under Chapter 7 of the Federal Bankruptcy Law in federal court in Pittsburgh. Local stores are closed. Consumers with warranty concerns should contact the appliance manufacturer. Consumers who have purchased extended warranties should review their contract for information. Individuals having recently paid for goods by charge card, and who have not received the purchase should contact their charge card company for a charge back from your credit card company, under the special rules of the Fair Credit Billing Act. The BBB can mail you information on this. As of February 16,1993, the Ohio Attorney General's office is administering a recovery program for individuals who have made full or partial payment on undelivered items; who have paid deposits on undelivered COD items; or, who have not taken delivery due to product defects. These consumers should write to the OHIO ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE, State Office Tower, 30 E. Broad Street, 25th Floor, Columbus Ohio 43266-8831, or call 1-800-282-0515.

Customers having layaway, service or other monetary claims against the company are still advised to obtain a Proof of Claim form by writing to the FEDERAL BANKRUPTCY COURT, 1000 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15222, or calling 412-644-2700. Individuals on the list of creditors with that court, will be contacted by a Bankruptcy court trustee. The BBB does not endorse any company, product or service.
