Ashley - No Furniture! Order Placed and Paid in Full 11/13/12; POOR Customer Service.
Loveseat and Chair
PEORIA, ILLINOIS -- I placed my order 11/13/12. Prior to placing the order, I had made it very clear to the salesman that I needed the furniture quickly and was assured that would be no problem. However, after placing my order and signing the paperwork, I was informed the delivery date would not be until 12/18/12, with the reason given the holidays as the culprit. Although disappointed, I did agree to this delivery date after being assured by the salesman I would have my furniture by Christmas.
Delivery date arrived, passed and no phone call was received. I called the store 12/21 and was informed the salesman who I had dealt with was no longer at the store. Stated he had been "let go" due to false promises. Was informed my order had been delayed until 12/28 and that someone should have called me in regards to this. This person was very apologetic, said will speak with the manager and have someone follow up.
I did receive a phone call on 12/22 and was told after some phone calls were made, my loveseat could be delivered on the truck scheduled for 1/1/13 but my chair had been delayed again to 1/7/13. Was asked if I wanted my loveseat delivered when it came in on the 1st and I asked if I would have to pay another delivery fee. A manager was consulted and I was then told since there was such a long wait for my ordered furniture and because of the poor customer service by the original salesman, there would not be another delivery charge.
I requested for my loveseat to be delivered when it arrived on the truck around the 1st and I was told I would receive a phone call the moment it arrived. Of course, no phone call was received around the 1st or on the 7th. I called the Peoria store the evening of the 7th, and inquired about my order. First I was told the order was delayed until the 14th. I asked why I was not called regarding the delay. I was placed on hold, then was informed the chair had arrived but the loveseat was delayed until the 14th, and when it arrived, I would be called to make arrangements for delivery.
I then reminded the individual about the 12/22 verbal agreement regarding the separate deliveries with no extra charge. She expressed no knowledge of this and stated would have the manager call and discuss with me first thing 1/8/13. It is now 945 pm and no phone call was received. Surprise, surprise.
