Ripped seam turns into Lake Oswego sofa saga

Ripped seam turns into Lake Oswego sofa saga

COMPLAINT: June Chen-Todt, Lake Oswego, Ore.

"Neuman's Upholstery was supposed to repair a ripped seam in my leather couch. I paid a $100 deposit, and they promised my sofa would be repaired in two weeks. When I called, they said they needed additional time.

"I called [a couple of weeks later] and confirmed the delivery date, but they didn't show. They [later] said the sofa couldn't be returned due to water damage the shop caused. The stain may take 12 months to go away or may be permanent.

"After many phone calls, they agreed to send me a check for $300 toward the replacement of the couch and return my deposit, but they haven't paid. My sofa is still at the shop, and they haven't returned my calls."

DESIRED RESOLUTION: "I'd like the $400, as promised."
