Local Business "Home Renovations" Has Consumers Concerned

January 17, 2013

Jacksonville, FL, Thursday January 17,2013-BBB has received numerous calls from consumers concerning a local business, Home Renovations, trying to discern whether the business is temporarily closed or if it is out of business. Consumers who have contacted the BBB informed us that while the merchandise is still in the store, there is a sign on the storefront stating that they are closed with no other information. When you try calling the phone number (904) 781-0127) a recording comes on stating you have reached a number that is disconnected or no longer in service. The website for the company, www.homerenovationsjacksonville.com,was never completed.

BBB has tried to find out more information about the company and its ownership with no luck. Searching the Florida Department of State Division of Corporations returns no results, the same for the Duval county local business tax search. BBB checked with the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulations and did not find a matching license for Home Renovations. We also tried searching the US Bankruptcy court records for judgments against Home Renovations and came up empty handed.

What does this mean if you believe you have been a victim? BBB has some advice:

· If you have a problem with merchandise received from the company, you may be able to contact the manufacturer.

· If you have a recent contract with the company, you may wish to contact the State Attorney’s office and see what recourse you have regarding your contract.

· You can keep checking US Bankruptcy court records to see if any new judgments are handed down.
