Bob's Furniture Store - Quality and Service Sucks.
MONMOUTH JUNCTION, NJ, NEW JERSEY -- My fiancée and I went to Bob’s Furniture Store in Monmouth Junction, NJ. We were looking for bedroom furniture, consisting of a dresser and wooded bed frame, a mattress, a box spring and perhaps a computer desk and chair on 3/9/12. We were helped by the office manager, Kalen, which she was able to find the furniture pieces to our liking. We specifically told customer service there, that we will have the bedroom furniture, mattress and box spring to be delivered on 3/16/12, while the computer desk and chair to be delivered at a later date. We needed time to have that specific room prepared for that computer desk and chair.
We received the items as promised on 3/16/12, but they also delivered the computer chair in that delivery against our instructions. Since we were so concerned about the bedroom furniture, we made sure those items were in working order before the delivery men left. Everything was fine with the bedroom furniture.
Since the room was not ready for the computer chair and desk, we left the computer chair in our living room for the time being. My fiancée did notice about a week later that the black computer chair was defective. There was chipping on the front arms of the chair, a hairline crack in the back of the left arm, and the arm sawed off and sub standardly screwed in, which caused it not to be flushed with the back part of the chair.
Since this chair was black, it was hard to see the defectiveness of the product. I called customer service to cancel the computer desk. If the chair is in this quality then, the desk will probably be in the same type of quality. My fiancée then called customer service, and since we did not call within the three day window, they could not give us a refund. A tech person must come out to determine that it is defective for us to receive any store credit. Two weeks later the tech came and told us that it is defective, but the arms can be replaced. We did not want it. What is the sense to have a computer chair without the desk? So we had a schedule a delivery man to pick up the chair on 4/11/12 to get the credit.
While this was all going on, we advised customer service that we had a comfort issue with the mattress. We tried the Bobby Bear Euro top mattress in the store, and it felt fine, but unfortunately, it did not translate well in our home. I would wake up in utter back pain ever night for the first week. Customer service advise us to call on the thirty first day to get an exchange. Since this would require another tech to come in to determine the defectiveness of the mattress probably in two weeks, we asked customer service to pickup the mattress. They said they can do it, but the delivery men must call them to get confirmation. They did, and speaking with a customer service, I was told to call the store to order a new mattress. I called later that afternoon, and was told by Jason at the store that they do not have the mattress. I then called around 8:30 and they finally gave me credit for the mattress and chair. Unfortuantely, since I return the item, I must pay $39.95 delivery charge for the new mattress then the difference of the new mattress in the amount of $110.00.
Being that it was late and I was tired from a long day at work, I put it on my credit card. I decided to speak with Jason R., the sales representative that helped picked out the new mattress, the following morning due to all the aggravation that I went thru. I wanted something for the inconveience. He told me some bull that the price is already a discounted rate and Bob does not give any refund. Jason was boasting that the Bob provides great quality at a great price. He was saying that Bob's Furniture is the best and urged me to buy their stock, since they are going to expand down South. Jason claims to be the disciple of Bob's. I was ready to hear in his next sentence, that Bob will be parting the Red Sea next week for everyone to see. Please, Jason, stop the bs. Bob is a store with horrible service and crappy furniture. I will never get anything at Bob's again.
