Introduction:I am really not sure about other DirectBuy Memberships across the United States, however, I do know about the DirectBuy in Western New York. Beware of this company. They will most likely be filing for bankruptcy soon.
EDITED: DirectBuy in Buffalo, New York is now closed.
Things have been going bad for DirectBuy in Western New York for at least a year now. DirectBuy has regularly had some major problems with their finances.
Things are not getting any better for DirectBuy. The company is beginning to crumble. Do some research, and watch the news. DirectBuy will most likely be filing for bankruptcy very soon.
If you decide to buy a membership from this company, please beware. They need money so bad, there is no telling where your money will end up or if you will even get the membership that you will be paying for.
During the past year, most DirectBuy paychecks have all been bouncing. Sure, these checks are eventually being paid to their employees, but most of these checks bounce first.
It has finally come to a point that DirectBuy has had no choice but to lay off many of their employees. They just cannot afford to pay them.
Many of these employees had earned sick days, personal days, and vacation days which are now lost.
These employees cannot say that they did not see this coming, though, not with their paychecks continuously bouncing. They all had to know that DirectBuy was having major finance problems.
It has been almost a week since being laid off, and these DirectBuy employees still have not received their paychecks. They have not been promised any severance pay or even their last paychecks.
DirectBuy may somehow miraculously come through this horrible mess, but please, check into this company before throwing your money away.
EDITED: These employees have finally been paid one of their checks. They still need to get their last check now. However, they have no hopes of ever getting their last check, because DirectBuy in Buffalo, New York is now closed.
