CURVES OF TYSONS CORNER, IN VIENNA, CLOSES; ELIGIBLE MEMBERS MUST FILE FOR REFUNDS BY JUNE 15, 2013
Contact: Elaine J. Lidholm, 804.786.7686
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) is advising consumers that Curves of Tysons Corner, a health club facility located at 2070 Chain Bridge Road, Suite 180, Vienna, Virginia, closed as of February 16, 2013. Members of this particular health club who have contracts that had not expired at the time the facility closed have until June 15, 2013, to file a claim for refund with VDACS.
The Virginia Health Spa Act (Act) provides, in part, that members of a health club may cancel their membership contract if the facility relocates or goes out of business and the health club fails to provide comparable alternate facilities within five driving miles of the location designated in the health club contract. Upon cancellation of the contract, eligible members are entitled to receive a refund of the unexpired portion of their contract. Curves of Tysons Corner did not have a comparable alternate facility; therefore, eligible members may file a claim with VDACS in order to establish refund eligibility.
To establish eligibility, members must submit a copy of their contract, proof of payment, and a completed Health Club Complaint form. This form is available on VDACS’ website at www.vdacs.virginia.gov. Select “Special Programs and Quick Links,” then “Forms.” Scroll down to forms for the Division of Consumer Protection and select the “Health Club Complaint Form.”
For additional information, contact Investigator Sandy Harrington, VDACS’ Office of Charitable and Regulatory Programs, at 804.225.4601, or Sandy.Harrington@vdacs.virginia.gov.
