Consumer alert over closure of Geraldton restaurant

This announcement is for: 
Consumer

Consumer Protection is advising consumers in the Mid-West region, who may be out of pocket after the closure of a Geraldton restaurant, to come forward and lodge a complaint.

The Port View Restaurant in Marine Terrace has closed its doors and it’s believed there may be consumers who have unused gift vouchers or may have paid a deposit on functions at the venue.

Senior regional officer for Consumer Protection in the Mid-West Danni Bloomfield said the consumers may not be aware of the restaurant’s closure.

“I have spoken to the owner of the restaurant who is unable to supply a list of consumers who may be at financial risk so we are appealing to affected consumers to contact us at Consumer Protection as soon as possible,” Ms Bloomfield said.

“At this stage we are not aware of a liquidator being appointed but, in the meantime, we would like to hear from anyone who has an unused gift voucher or has paid a deposit for future functions, so that we can make a realistic assessment of the total number of consumers who may be affected and the amount of money they claim to be owed.

“Consumer Protection can keep consumers updated on any developments and advise them on what can and cannot be done.”

Affected consumers can lodge a complaint online at www.dmirs.wa.gov.au/consumer-protection or call Consumer Protection’s Geraldton office on 9920 9800.
