Previously this story incorrectly listed a previous CEO as the current CEO. KSL TV regrets the error.

LEHI —  Jane, a Utah-based online company offering fashion and home decor has closed its doors, giving few answers to employees and customers.

The Lehi Police Department confirmed the department had opened an investigation into the company.

Several women reached out to KSL TV claiming the company’s website was shut down, and that the company still owed them money.

One of those women was Laura Mederos, a seller with Jane.com since 2014.

She said two weeks ago she did not receive her due payment from Jane.com. When she reached out, there was no response from support.

Mederos said her niece, who is also a seller on Jane.com was also not paid the amount she was owed.

A former employee who wanted to stay anonymous that employees were let go on Friday morning without severance or Healthcare.

Mederos said the company turned off comments on its online seller forum and shut down the seller Facebook page.

When searching for the website this is what appears.

Jane.com down for maintenance

KSL.com recently covered the company in an article from this spring. The article explains that Jane had received many accolades and was ranked on the Utah Business Fastest-Growing Companies and Financial Times America’s Fastest-Growing Companies 2022 lists.

Sellers told KSL TV that Krista Kochivar took over as CEO in July. 

Since its creation in 2011 as a women-focused platform, the company featured over 2,000 sellers.

KSL reached out to the current leadership of Jane and did not get a response.

Lehi police said anyone who feels like the company has committed a crime who would like to make a report can contact the Lehi PD non-emergency number, 801-794-3970.

Previously this story erroneously listed a previous CEO as the current CEO. KSL TV regrets the error.
