HH Gregg Complaint - Worst Customer Service - Pathetic GM
BRIAR CREEK, RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA -- After Christmas, I purchased a TV and Blu Ray player from HH Gregg. Paid >$2500. After 13 days, the Blu Ray player died. When I called the store I was able to speak to the GM [snip] (He said he was the GM and top guy). I inquired into getting a replacement. He stated no problem, but it would be at least 3 weeks before he got more stock of the particular model player. He was not confident in the 3+ weeks. I inquired into a similar model, but they had none in that price range. I asked for a refund of the price I paid to purchase a replacement elsewhere and he said no way. He kept quoting the 10 day refund policy and I was at day 13!
I can understand this if he can replace my unit or at least get me something comparable, but since he cannot, I should get a refund. It makes no sense to hold me hostage for 3+ weeks (again, maybe 3 weeks, maybe more...he was not confident in when he can expect more in stock). [snip] was extremely unprofessional, rude, arrogant, and just plain argumentative. I felt like I was talking to a 4th grader!
I could not believe they would have such a terrible refund policy, especially because they were selling their great customer service - "don't buy the equipment at Amazon for less money because if you ever have a problem, we will stand behind you and take care of you, not like any other store". That's right, any other store has 30-90 day refund policies, without restocking fees!!
I had a 13 day old unit (only watched 1 movie on it before it died), spent over $2500 with these incompetent people, and was treated horribly.
Additionally, it is fraudulent for HH Gregg to make statements surrounding their $120+ HDMI cables being REQUIRED in order to use my new TV. Now, I know better, but I feel for the many people who buy that BS and get conned into spending $120 when a $6 cable is 100% as good. For them to make claims that you HAD to have their expensive cables or the TV will not work properly is fraudulent!
Noticed the unsatisfactory rating on BBB, just wish I looked at that prior to giving my money to this awful company.
