Toys R Us - Worst online experience
ONLINE, NEW JERSEY -- I mailed the below letter to Toys R Us today.
One Geoffrey Way
Wayne, NJ 07470
To Whom It May Concern:
I placed on an order on your website on Tuesday, August 4th. After I placed the order I called to make sure that it would ship yesterday. The items are for my daughter’s birthday this coming Sunday, September 9th. The associate on the phone assured me that the items would ship out yesterday or today. He provided me with the warehouse zip code. UPS Ground is a guaranteed 2 business days in transit from your warehouse to my home.
This morning when I had not received tracking I called your service line back. This time I was told that my order would arrive between the 9th and the 14th. They stated that there was no way to determine when it would arrive.
What this means is that my order might not ship today. There was no way to cancel the order (even though it has not shipped yet) and refund my money. I am now unable to simply go to the store and purchase her presents in person. No one was able to assist me and I truly was tired of hearing the word unfortunately which the associate used at least 15 times.
So now my daughter’s birthday is approaching and I might have to tell her that she will not receive any presents from her mother. I shop online all the time and this is the 1st time I have run into such a wall when dealing with customer service. It seems that Toys R Us does not know the meaning of going above and beyond for the customer.
If my daughter does not receive her presents on time for her birthday this weekend I will be sure to follow this letter with pictures of her tear stained face as well as post the pictures on your Facebook page with a nice thank you from us. I have been a loyal customer for the past 20yrs. Every Christmas and Birthday I buy presents for my 5 children from Toys R Us. Well no more. The little guy might not count for much for the big corporation but you have just lost this little guy!
