Ashley Furniture - Insisted Numerous Times I Will Be Paying Cash on Delivery
RED DEER, ALASKA -- My wife and I bought a dining room suite, and some living room tables. Total approx. $4500.00. Numerous times insisting that we would be paying cash on delivery. I suggested we decide on a sum as a down payment prior to delivery and the sales person Drew up a written agreement. As I thought I understood what this agreement was I did not read it thoroughly. I paid the suggested down payment and my wife and I left the store, expecting the delivery of our furniture in 3 to 4 weeks as stated. 1 week later I received a letter and credit card from City financial confirming the fact that I now was in a financial relationship with them for the furniture. I had in fact signed a contract financing it. As you can imagine...... I was furious, but screwed. Not matter what I did, because I had signed this agreement without reading it I was on the hook for it. Refusing to accept the furniture was not possible, as well refusing to pay balance would put me in a bad credit situation with the finance company. I returned to the store and tore a strip off of the salesperson I dealt with, in front of their co-workers as well as other customers, and have told everyone I know. 6 months later the furniture looks like it is 6 years old, Chinese junk. 100% bad experience, do not recommend shopping there.
