Days after Positive Changes locked their doors, a notice to pay rent or vacate appeared on their building and their lawyer confirmed with KHQ they have indeed filed for bankruptcy.
The sign posted on the door on Thursday stated the company owes $10,818.60 dollars for rent from December 2016 to February 2017.
Later, the lawyer for the company told KHQ's Andrea Olson that bankruptcy papers had been filed.
Positive Changes released the following statement to KHQ on Thursday:
"Lifestyle Improvement Centers the Franchisor for Positive Changes Hypnosis Centers has learned that ET Research Inc. of Spokane Washington has filed for protection under the United States Bankruptcy Code. The four Positive Changes Hypnosis Centers operating in the Pacific Northwest are independently owned and locally operated by ET Research Inc., headquartered in Spokane, Washington. The national franchisor cannot comment on the business decisions made by independent, local owners. We are concerned about the impact this has on the staff and clients of ET Research. Until further investigation we are not in a position to comment further."
Andrea is reading through those documents and will have details, including what you need to do if you were a customer and still owed services, tonight on KHQ Local News.
