Troubled Windowizards may face charges

    Back in December, popular window installer Windowizards raised eyebrows when they suddenly closed up shop, leaving nothing behind but a padlocked door and a cryptic message on its website. Now the company may be in trouble again.

    Mike Bannon, the head of the Bucks County’s Consumer Protection Office, says he’s losing patience with Windowizards and may soon ask the district attorney to file criminal charges against the company on behalf of customers who have put down money on windows but have yet to receive them.

    The news comes amid  concern that the company may be closing up shop, leaving customers and workers out in the cold.

    About a dozen independent window installers who gathered in Windowwizards’ parking lot on Thursday morning said they are owed money for window installations and are trying to find out if the company is still in business.

    Windowizards has been shut down for the past couple of weeks as it tries to iron out credit and inventory problems.
