Not resolved

6/18/11 - called Newport News Catalog for the status on a credit on my refund and the customer service rep told me that all gift cards and requests for credits on refunds prior to 6/1/11 have been postponed until further notice.Newport News will send out a notification letter sometime in July.

I asked the CSR if they are still in business, which she replied, "Yes." I then asked her if they will be issuing refunds after 6/1/11, which she then replied, "I don't know, the parent company filed for bankruptcy." Therefore, I am informing everyone that purchases from Newport News to stop doing it if you plan to return items and expect a credit!It appears Newport News is going under.

I've purchased some fabulous plus size clothing in the past from Newport News. Searching online today for a leather jacket, I decided to see what Newport had for sale. Surprised to find out they're out of business....what happen????

I have a $110 gift certificate from a return @ Newport News and now I can't use it.I input my info on the Spiegel website prior to the cut off date, but guess I will never see that money.



:sigh I have ordered from Newport News for years. It is sad.


This used to be my favorite catalog, especially since the warehouse was in my hometown. I have dozens of items ordered from them over the years that I still have and still wear. So sad to hear it took a nose dive and died.


I hate to see that Newport News has filed bankruptcy!I have ordered from them several times and never really had a problem except for the quality of the merchandise.

I did like the boots I bought from them, but my dog liked them more and chewed them to shreds.Oh well.


dispute it with your credit card company.Show them proof of the return.

you will get your money back.I do it all the time when companies that confirmed they received merchandise back then inform me it will take 6-8 weeks for a refund.
