After a ProPublica investigation of USA Discounters’ lending practices last summer, a barrage of lawsuits, regulatory inquiries and changes to Defense Department policies followed.
Aug. 14, 2015 - For the first time in its history, USA Discounters is living up to its name. For years, the company has specialized in selling marked-up appliances, electronics and furniture to service members through high-priced loans. But these days, it’s just the place for a soldier to go for a steal on a bedroom set or a washer. The company’s website used to shout “Bad Credit? Slow Credit? No Credit? No Problem!” Now it’s “ENTIRE STORE ON SALE!”
The chain, which once had 24 stores, almost all right outside military bases around the country, has been holding a rolling going out of business sale. The closures follow our investigation of the company’s lending practices last summer and a subsequent series of government inquiries and Department of Defense actions.
