TAPE#96-84
GRAPHIC=Holdrens


There's an update for the thousands of people in our area who paid for service contracts from the now- defunct Holdren's Appliance Stores.
The state says it's stepping up its efforts to help these people.
The trouble began last summer when the Crenshaw T-V and Appliance Company acquired Holdren's assets but not its liabilities.
Double Boxes=Keith and Len/Newsroom


Len Besthoff spoke with the Virginia Office of Consumer Affairs this afternoon, and he has the specifics.
Live=Len Full/Newsroom
SUPER=@Len1;


Bob Colvin, the manager of the Virginia Office of Consumer Affairs says his agency's inquiry is a two- fold process.
First it tries to resolve the situation by getting the parties involved to come to some kind of agreement.
That didn't happen, so now it's on to the next step, a formal investigation.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Roanoke/File Tape;


That probe began September 12, when the office received the first of 860 complaints that Holdren's customers took the time to send in.
Colvin says if his agency finds any indication that consumer protection laws were violated, it will pass the case on to the Attorney General's office, which will decide if it wants to bring the case to court.
(-------------)
Live=Len Full/Newsroom


The Office of Consumer Affairs estimates the value of the outstanding service contracts is ONE- POINT- SEVEN- MILLON- DOLLARS.
There's 100- thousand- dollars available to pay back the contract holders...but that would only come out to pennies on the dollar.
Virginia law says a company has to put money in an escrow account if it's going to offer customer service contracts.
Double Boxes=Keith and Len/Newsroom


And Crenshaw, the company that took over Holdren's assets, but not its liabilities, is offering discounts to the contract holders, but not the original deal they had with Holdren's.
