Oregon Grand Central Bowling Hidden Fee Settlement Notes
- Kevin Mehrens v. Concept Entertainment-Six d/b/a Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge
- Case No. 17CV49816
- Pending in the Circuit Court for the State of Oregon for Multnomah County
This class action lawsuits stems from allegations that Oregon Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge overcharges customers by 2%. While 2% may not seem like much – more cents than dollars on an individual basis, imagine this 2% charge for every patron of Oregon Grand Central Restaurant being charged this hidden fee, then you’re talking tens of thousands of dollars in wrongful profits.
That’s why plaintiff Kevin Mehrens, a Portland civil attorney, hired Portland consumer rights lawyer Michael Fuller to bring this case as a class action lawsuit on behalf of all Oregonians who were essentially ripped off by the popular bowling alley and lounge. While it can be argued that this 2% fee is to offset rising minimum wage in the state, the lawsuit really centers on the fact that nowhere on the menus or in the dining area is this 2% fee disclosed to customers.
According to court documents, when Mehrens visited Oregon Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge and got his receipt, he was surprised when his meal cost more than he had expected.
“A private investigator, and other potential witnesses, later confirmed that plaintiff was not alone – defendant systematically misrepresents the cost of its menu items to all its lounge customers who order from defendant’s downstairs bar, upstairs lounge, and bowling alley,” the lawsuit states.
When confronted about their hidden fee practice, Oregon Bowling said they receive complaints all the time, but essentially just brush it off since no one really cares about a few cents extra. But Mehrens’ complaint indicates that over 1,000 consumers are eligible to file a claim against Oregon Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge and may eligible to receive a payment of up to $40.
