Consumer Resource Center observes 20th birthday

Posted by JOHN STARK on September 12, 2013 

The Washington Attorney General's Consumer Resource Center in Bellingham recently celebrated its 20th anniversary.

To commemorate that, office supervisor Ruth Holbrook is inviting present and former center volunteers to a reception from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19 at the center office, 103 E. Holly St, Suite 308. That's the Bellingham National Bank Building. There will be a presentation at 12:30.

The Bellingham center is one of seven in the state. The AG's office reports that the centers handle a total average of 55,000 calls per year, greet nearly 1,500 walk-in consumers and process 25,000 written consumer complaints. As a result of the informal mediation of the 25,000 written consumer complaints, the centers help return more than $6 million to the consumers of the state each year.
