Today creditors were at Crossroads Appliance around 48 hours after the business shut its doors. Workers were taking inventory and rolling products out the door and into trucks. Customer Mike Orendorf wonders if his appliances are going away too.

"I'm thinking it should be in our house and not in that truck heading down the road."

The Renton man spent $14,000 on appliances for a kitchen remodel for his wife. He was expecting delivery of the goods in September, but not anymore.

"That's a lot of money, I don't have that kind of money to throw around, that's for sure," he said.

So I decided to step on in and ask Chief Operating Officer Adam Collier what's going on with the stores.

All he would say as he asked me to leave was they were trying to work it out.

We're told General Electric is the company removing its appliances. Now customers like Mike Orendorf wonder when his bought-and-paid-for items will ever end up in their homes.

"I'm sick to my stomach, and disappointed that another human being could treat people like that," he said.

Again, call your credit card company and dispute the charge. Even if it has been some time since your purchase. If the goods haven't been delivered, you may have a chance of getting your money back.

If you paid by cash you'll have to wait and see. Keep all of your receipts. We will keep you updated on this story.
