Ashley Furniture - Ashley Porter Bedroom Sets. Warning!!
MADISON, WISCONSIN -- If Ur interested in this bedroom (Porter) set don't buy from Ashley store. At A-1 furniture they have the same set and I was able to get it for 1000 dollars less!!
And they had the set in stock so we got it the next day. They also treated me Soooo much nicer and better. No games from the sales people. The guy quoted me 2499 after
I asked what is the best deal he could do for me. Later I realized that it even included tax, so I didn't have to pay extra (even though, I was set to pay the tax)
Originally I went to the Ashley Homestore on the east side and fell in love with this bed set, the sales girl there after asking her to get a price quote came back with a price of 3700 dollars. Which didn't add up when you crunch the individual numbers so I asked her to break it down. They have tagged along a protection plan fee( 10% of purchase) taxes and delivery because she had asked if I wanted delivery done by the way the delivery charge was 150 dollars!! Way more than any local furniture stores around here. A-1 is charging me 40 bucks!
After I told the manager I was only interested in the bedroom price not the added fees he got really condescending to me and laughed at my face! I am usually kind and appreciative that these people are only trying to make a living but this manager at Ashley made me feel like I was there to ask for his service and business not the other way around. Like well if you don't like my price go somewhere else. I should add that as part of his horrid and deceitful tactics he told me that this bedroom set was an "EXCLUSIVE" Ashley piece sold only at Ashley Stores. That's why I left the store feeling very upset and sad cause my pride and sense of dignity was torn. I didn't bother to look after that for a bed set. never ever want to step foot in a Ashley Store again!
But things were meant to be, because I happen to go into A-1 for a quick glance at a mattress for my son and there was my beloved bed set. A part of me still feels guilty because it is a Ashley Piece. Also imagine the surprised of the sales man at A-1 when I told him the sales manager at Ashley told me it was exclusive and not sold anywhere else.
Ashley store employees must have gone through very rigorous training to deceive, lie and try to steal from customers any way they can!!
