Fortunoff Will Fulfill Consumers’ Pre-Paid Orders

Uniondale-based jewelry and furniture chain Fortunoff, which filed for bankruptcy and is liquidating, will fulfill consumers’ pre-paid orders of in-stock furniture. As of March 5, 2009, the company canceled delivery of such purchases, contrary to its obligations, and prepared to have such furniture included in liquidation sales. Cuomo stepped in to ensure that the company’s actions were immediately reversed. This action follows the Attorney General’s intervention last month to make sure that consumers’ Fortunoff gift cards would be honored through March 8, 2009.

The Attorney General intervened after receiving numerous complaints from consumers who paid thousands of dollars for furniture and were told that, although the furniture was in stock, it would not be delivered, and no refunds would be provided. The Attorney General urges all consumers who paid in full for furniture that has not been delivered to contact Fortunoff immediately to request delivery of any in-stock items.
