Ikea Complaint - Stay Away from the Bolingbrook, IL Store
BOLINGBROOK, ILLINOIS -- My husband and I were looking for a round table to entertain guests. We had been all over looking for one and were so excited when we came across one here. It seemed odd, but there was no number to go pick it ourselves, it said write down the name and color and ask them for help. So we did, the only question the man had was how tall was the base, 29 or 48"? We told him 29", he printed out a "C&C Full Serve", we paid and then we waited. About 20 minutes later, a woman comes out and says it shows 6, (yes she said 6), bases in stock but there isn't a one there. I asked for the floor model base since it appeared they were discontinuing it, the sticker had said last chance. She said she'd check and walked away. 10 minutes later she came back and said there was no way they would give me the floor model; she swore it wasn't being discontinued and that they needed the floor model to continue selling it. She said it would take 2 weeks to get a new one in. I asked for her manager and she walked away and made a call. Another 10 minutes goes by and she finally came back with a cart. She said she called the warehouse manager down and he looked for the parts and found them. Hmm, weird, but okay, we're so happy to have the table that we were so desperately looking for! Our party was saved...or not. When we got home, the base wasn't the same as the model we looked at. It doesn't even fit our table top, it's too small. The base in the store was round, this one is crossed. I'm not sure who didn't know what they were doing, the first guy who didn't give a round option, the lady who claimed they were out of stock or the warehouse manager that found them- probably all three. I'm just sorry I let my excitement get in the way of getting these peoples names. We will never shop at this location again. I'm not even sure I'll go to the Schaumburg one after this.
