Ripped Off

In August of 2015, I contracted with a local business (K & K Merchant, owned by Nicholas R. King) to sell some of my items in their store. The agreement stipulated that I pay a flat fee per month and they would handle the sales transaction.

The arrangement worked well for about 6 months or so. Then in April when I stopped by to restock and settle up the account for the month, the store was closed.

On April 7th, I called the number listed on the door and there was no answer, so I sent a text message to find out when they are going to open. Here is the response I received:

"No we are not going to be we are going to be closing store this month I opened a construction company and I have so much work I don't have time for store I will let you no when we are takin stuff out and get it for you thanks for your business and think you sold 25 or 30."

I heard nothing from him, so on April 27th, I sent him another text message asking him when he will be at the store so I can get my items. Here is his response:

"We will be there next week"

On May 5th, I still had not heard anything from him so I sent another text message. This time no response.

From April 7th to May 5th I also called numerous times, but no answer or returned phone call.

Finally, on May 10th, I sent him an email and gave him four options to make things right.
1. Set a day and time to meet and settle up.
2. Have the owner of the building let me in to get my stuff.
3. Mail me my stuff.
4. Buy me out.

As of today, May 23rd, I have yet to receive a response.

In conclusion, I would not recommend doing business with Nicholas R. King. He has not made good on the written agreement we had.

Hopefully, I can report back with good news regarding the situation and revise my recommendation regarding Nicholas R. King.
