Wisconsin company sues Philadelphia-based mattress and furniture dealer for $4K

By Nicholas Malfitano | Apr 24, 2018


PHILADELPHIA – A Wisconsin-based furniture dealer has launched legal action against a local furniture store, seeking to recover more than $4,000 it says it is owed per the terms of a purchase agreement between the parties.

Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. of Arcadia, Wis. filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on April 10 versus Merna Furniture & Mattress, Inc., of Philadelphia.

In October 2015, the parties entered into an agreement where the terms were cash on delivery/certified check and a limit of $15,000. On June 27, 2017, the defendant purchased furniture from the plaintiff, and owes a full and required payment of $4,068.14 for that same purchase – however, the lawsuit alleges the defendant refused make that same payment of its past due balance, despite repeated demand.

For counts of breach of contract, breach of implied contract, unjust enrichment and quantum meruit, the plaintiff is seeking damages of at least $4,068.14, plus interest, costs, attorney’s fees of $634.86 and other such relief as the Court deems equitable and just.

The plaintiffs are represented by Brian K. Zellner of Hynum Law, in Harrisburg.
