What to do if I have a gift card for a spa that is going out of business?

Question Details: They said that because they are closing they are booked and can no longer take appointments for the gift cards; they also will not refund my money. They are scheduled to close on Saturday but have not opened this week. There are several of us holding these cards. Is there any way to get our money back? Can I file in small claims or possibly start a class action lawsuit? There are a lot of us who have these. My daughter and I both have $70 gift cards. Several others have come to me due to a post I put on the spa's website and said they too would like to get their money back. Is there anything that we can do? They have basically locked their doors already.
