Canadian Competition Bureau Accuses Leon's Furniture Ltd. and The Brick for Deceptive Promos
Jul 15 13
The Canadian Competition Bureau is targeting Leon's Furniture Ltd. and its subsidiary, The Brick, for what it believes are deceptive marketing practices related to its popular and frequent "buy now, pay later" promotions. In a statement, the federal business watchdog said its investigation revealed, among other things, that customers were required to pay up-front fees, despite the promise inherent in the "buy now, pay later" promotion. The bureau, an independent law enforcement agency policing business practices, has filed an action with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice seeking an end to what it described as a "type of deceptive advertising" and seeking refunds for all customers who paid administration or processing fees from Leon's and The Brick. The bureau accuses Leon's and The Brick of burying details of additional up-front fees in the purchase agreement's fine print, which led to the final price of the product sold being higher than the advertised price for those consumers using the deferred payment option. Depending on applicable fees due at the time of purchase (which may include processing or administrative fees, delivery fees and taxes), the bureau continued, a customer wanting to defer payment on a CAD 1,500 sofa could end up paying more than CAD 350 at the time of purchase, even though the advertisements clearly state that no payment is required at the time of purchase.
