What If You've Pre-Paid For Something And The Store Goes Out Of Business?

We all heard about the bridal store in Fredericton that closed suddenly, leaving disappointed women wondering what to do about their dresses.

The Provincial Finance Commission is advising New Brunswickers to research companies, check the return policy, and get everything in writing before you buy anything.

If you find yourself in a situation where a business closes and you've pre-paid for something, you should visit the location and see if any contact info has been posted, then check with your credit-card company or bank and see what your options are for cancelling payment. 

If all else fails, you can always contact the Finance Commission directly for specific advice.
