Take advantage of Credit Shield option – Courts

Furniture and appliance store Courts St Vincent Limited is reminding customers who were affected by the 2013 Christmas disaster to come into the store and take advantage of their Courts Credit Shield options.{{more}}

“As long as they had chosen Courts Credit, they are covered against damage or loss of product,” Alexis John, senior marketing executive said.

John said that for customers who are covered under the silver or gold plan, the outstanding cost of the product, less arrears, will be struck off.

“Let’s say a customer took a fridge and they had an outstanding balance of $1,500, and their product got damaged during the recent flooding, we will wipe that account clean. We will bring it to zero.”

John said that under the Ultimate Credit Plan, not only would the account be brought to zero, but customers will also be given 25 per cent off the original product price in Courts vouchers.

John said that this is to help their clients get back on their feet.

“A number of our customers were affected; a number of them lost electronics and appliances and furniture. In fact, a number of persons purchased items and did not get the opportunity to open the boxes; many of their products were washed away.

“We empathize with the victims and we want to let them know we are in prayer with them and will be making huge contributions to assist these persons.”

On December 30, Courts staff members journeyed to the Buccament Bay Secondary School and the Rose Bank Community Centre, where persons affected by the storm were housed.

They took with them $4,000 worth of food and water to distribute to the families at these shelters.(JJ)
