SALEM, NEW HAMPSHIRE -- This is the worst store ever. I bought a couch set from them of a total price of 1,400.00. They financed me the couch to be paid in a year and my monthly payment were going to be $150.00. However, when I was going to pay what I thought was my last payment they told me I still had 23 payments left, which meant $3,450.00 more than the $1800.00 I had already paid which means I was going to end up paying a total of $5,250.00 for a $1,400.00 couch set.
All they told me was that I needed to paid the couch in three months but that's not what they told me when they sold me the couch. They told me that I had a year to pay them and that's why they split my payments to $150.00 monthly. They're the worst. I would never buy from them again and do not suggest anyone to buy from them.
POUGKEEPSIE, NEW YORK -- Salesperson SHERRI-LYNN ** did a great job greeting me at the door and showed me the products I was looking for. She knew all about the products and was very pleasant and professional at her job. Did not rush or pressure me about my perches, got finance and delivery set up fast and to my liking, great salesmanship.
WYOMISSING, PENNSYLVANIA -- I purchased a sleeper sofa 9 months ago. From the day it was delivered, the sofa sagged on the right side. The support cable, on the right side, broke after using the sleeper mechanism 5 times. Even though there is a 1 year warranty, Bob's "experts" claim this is not a manufacturer defect. The sleeper sofa is in our basement and gets VERY light use. Do not buy anything from Bob's, as their quality is poor, and their warranty is worthless.
PARAMUS, NEW JERSEY -- This has to be the worst furniture store ever. Their merchandise is crap. Their customer is even worst. I had to return a couch three times because they all came damaged. Their customer service dept. has no clue what they are doing. Please pass this along to everyone you know.
NORTH PLAINFIELD, NEW JERSEY -- Saleswoman Ms. Patricia ** was the absolute best salesperson I ever met. Not pushy, gave us all the space we needed without any pressure and fast talk, answered any questions and concerns we had. She displayed outstanding professionalism, excellent customer service skills in addition to extensive experience and patience. We are extremely happy with our new Black Reclining Discovery Sofa and our new Marble top computer desk. Thank you, keep up the great work!!!
LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK -- I bought some sofas, the salesperson offer goof proof for plus coverage, plus covers you for 5 years. But when you call them, they don't give any solution, they don't fix anything and they don't change anything. The coverage is scam. They steal your money, very bad experience, never back to buy anything on Bob's. Don't let them steal your money. The furniture is very bad quality, cheap craftsman. I hate Bob's a lot!!! Same the salesperson's such a liar.
NESCONSET, NEW YORK -- I see many complaints here about Bob's furniture, delivery and customer service so I felt compelled to give my positive review figuring that people only post reviews when they have a bad experience, but not the good. I bought a couch and a king sized Bobby Bear bed with euro top (which I've also seen several complaints about). The salesman I dealt with was very friendly, patient and helpful. After putting my order through I even changed my mind on which couch I wanted before even leaving the store, and he gladly changed the order for me and I gave him the additional money because that couch was $200 more than my original choice.
The furniture was delivered the date it was promised and I had a car accident on my way to my new apartment to meet the delivery, so they even came back later the same day because I was not there for their first delivery attempt that morning due to the accident (as a side note, I was not hurt but my Mercedes was totaled, not a good start to my day). When the delivery guys arrived they were nice enough and although they seemed to move quickly, which made me nervous they would damage the furniture, they didn't cause any damage to the furniture or my new place, and in no time the furniture was inside.
Unfortunately, the one problem I did have was when they started to unwrap the couch, I noticed it was not the color I had ordered it in. I called the store while they waited and arranged for a new delivery of the correct color couch. The salesman said I could keep the wrong color couch for now and when they deliver the correct color couch, they will pick up the wrong couch at the same time. I thought that was cool because at least I still have a couch in the meantime. Other than that I didn't have any problem with Bob's furniture at all.
It is now almost 5 years later and although I have since moved and did have the furniture in storage for part of that time, I have been using the furniture for a total of around 3 1/2 years and I am still happy with both pieces. My Bobby Bear bed is still so comfy, and I believe the problem people are having with it being lumpy or sagging may have something to do with the frame, because I don't have mine on a frame, I have it on the floor with a dust ruffle on the box spring because I don't like my bed too high up and mine is still firm, no lumps and no sagging at all.
My couch is also still in good shape, no sagging and not falling apart and I have pets and fat friends who sit all over it! As far as the stories about the Goof proof insurance, I bought it too but that is a separate company which is an "insurance" company, and to me it just doesn't make sense that they would actually replace or repair anything for such a small amount of money, even damage done due to one's own fault such a long time after purchase and use.
If something seems too good to be true, that's probably because it is. Most insurance is rarely what it's sold as. I got it too but never really had reason to use it. Both of my choices have since been discontinued, and I feel lucky I got them when I did because I am still very happy with both.
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK -- I will never shop here again. We bought bedroom furniture for my daughter who was moving to a house in Queens. Once we received the call regarding delivery schedule I told them that she wouldn't be able to physically enter the house till 12:00 noon on the day of delivery. Instead of making the delivery time later it was changed to earlier! The person I spoke to put the change in as a request and not a building restriction, which I found out later.
Finally was able to get the furniture delivered a day later and they delivered the WRONG SIZE MATTRESS, BROKEN HEADBOARD, and the under bed storage drawers weren't assembled and installed by the delivery people for reasons unknown.
I must have talked to 10 different people in Customer Care. I had to call and wait on hold every time. There's no manager or point person to talk to when things go wrong. You talk to whomever answers the phone in Customer Care and they put in a request! Don't bother calling the store directly. They are basically worthless once the order is placed.
I was promised a whole new bed and the right mattress. They delivered a new headboard only and the correct mattress, but finally everything was delivered and in working order. My daughter works 2 jobs. She had to miss work in order to be home for delivery.
I then had to call them back in order to talk to someone regarding compensation, which I did and was disconnected when speaking to a Customer Care manager. I called back right away and had to explain all over again. There was no record of my conversation. I was finally connected to the Refund Dept. and was able to get some compensation. They originally tried to give me a Bob's gift card. NO thank you. This whole transaction was very unprofessional and ridiculous. I'm amazed at what a poor system they have and the lack of customer service when things go wrong, and it was Bob's mistake in the first place.
SOUTHINGTON, CONNECTICUT -- My fiancé and I ordered the Kenzo Bar Cabinet online with goof proof protection. The total with tax and the protection plan was $520.03. The cabinet arrived defective (the cabinet doors visibly did not align-- it did not look like we expected based on the store model). The delivery team said that we should accept delivery and have a service technician come out to take a look and we complied with these directions. The service technician came out and told us that there was nothing that he could do and that we needed to have a new cabinet delivered at which time they would pick up the defective cabinet.
We awaited a call but did not hear back so, while shopping at Bob's again and scheduling a delivery for our new purchase, we asked the sales person whether we could also schedule a delivery for the new cabinet. He did not know what we were talking about and could not find anything about it in our records so he put us in touch with customer care via the hotline in the Bob's store. We learned from customer care that the service technician had noted that he corrected the issue and that the cabinet was up to standards, and even that supposedly there was some sort of picture on file.
We were angered by this because the service technician, having spent all of five minutes assessing the problem, did absolutely nothing. Worse yet, customer care gave us a hard time. The person on the phone said that they would have to ask their manager about sending out a second technician, and then after putting us on hold for some time, said that the manager refused the request. Angered, we asked to speak to the manager (named Shana). We explained our situation (again) and were instructed to submit a series of photos to document what we were describing, which we did. Even after all this hassle and inconvenience our problem was not resolved.
We sent a follow-up e-mail and called to check in on the status of our matter, and, in the end, were told that a 1/8 inch difference in the cabinet doors is considered as still up to standards. They would not replace the cabinet and instead notified us that we have a credit of $477.50 ($42.53 less than we paid) to use within a two month period, and that once we use the credit to get something they will come take the defective cabinet back. This is absolutely some of the worst service we have experienced, which is really a shame because many of the salespeople are very helpful and the furniture looks nice in the stores.
I do would not recommend Bob's Discount Furniture because it is unacceptable that after paying for 'goof proof protection' and delivery charges, a defective product is delivered and nothing can be done about it. We have wasted much time and energy for a very poor outcome.
WILMINGTON, DELAWARE -- Back in December 2015 I purchased a king size storage bed at the Wilmington, DE location. Not even a month later the bed broke. The frame that the wooden slates were on cracked and the boards were sloping down causing the mattress to sink; unable to sleep on the bed. When they came out they told us that it was put together incorrectly, poorly and it looked rushed.
In March the bed broke AGAIN!! The same piece on the opposite side of the bed this time! They came out and the person told me "The adhesive is not compatible with the wood..." Then why are you using it?!? A week later the bed broke for the THIRD time!! SAME PIECE IN THE SAME SPOT!!! Mind you, I'm still continuing to make payments on a BROKEN bed!!
I called customer service and was very upset and felt like this has been a big inconvenience to me in the last 3 months! I went to the store the next day and the manager came out and was trying to sell me another storage bed, EVEN THE SAME ONE THAT KEPT BREAKING!! I had to basically use the credit from the original bed that I no longer wanted because they didn't want to give me my money back! I ended up having to get a non-storage bed and get a bed that I forced myself to like because the beds were not what I wanted!
I also went over to the showroom floor bed of the one I originally had and to my surprise when I lifted the mattress THAT BED WAS BROKE TOO!!! The manager told me that I could get a metal frame placed into the BED FRAME of the bed I picked out so I would feel comfortable not having the wooden slates going across the bed...
They literally just came out today 3/29/16 while I'm at work and they tell my boyfriend that the metal frame does not fit! I had to now sacrifice the rails and the footboard that I was originally told, BY THE STORE MANAGER, were going to be fine with the metal frame I purchased!! WRONG!!! I FEEL CHEATED AND I FEEL LIED TO!
I WILL NEVER SHOP AT BOB'S EVER AGAIN!! And I would never recommend this company to anyone!!! And to be clear, I still have to make payments... No compensation for the time I had to sacrifice for all the times they came out on my days off! Or for me having to spend almost 2 hours in the store to find a bed that I had to settle for! Very, very unhappy customer!!!
