Businesses step up after our story

After we shared how two new homeowners in Stapleton were left holding a furniture bill for $8,000+ and had yet to receive any furniture, it’s nice to see other local companies offering to step up and help. (See our story by clicking here:

BellaLu Home & Design suffered financial problems. Many customers paid up front for furniture that didn’t arrive. Store owner Jodi Zippo, to her credit, asked to sit down and face our cameras. She explained the economy was mostly to blame.

Since my story aired, the owners of Elements For Design on West Evans Avenue in Denver offered to help Jessica and Mike Goodman by giving them wholesale pricing on new furniture.

“We would love the opportunity to help make this unfortunate situation right,” Kevin Dunn & Kevin Wood told me in an email.

Breanne Mashek who owns InHabit Interior Design also offered her design services for 10% off.

What’s also nice is that neither business owner asked to have their name put on TV.
