Target Complaint - Bait and Switch
QUAKERTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA -- Target, in their infinite wisdom advertised their Alexander patio furniture on sale between 5/3-5/9. I went to the store on 5/6 and they had the chairs in stock, the round table but not the rectangular table. I was told that the truck would be in on Friday 5/8 with more tables. I proceeded to purchase the 6 chairs and loaded them up and took them home. Friday I called and no table. I called again on Saturday,,no table. I called every day for almost 2 weeks,,no table. I called EVERY Target store within a 50 mile radius,,no tables ! WTF, how can you advertise items for sale and never have any to sell? I called and inquired about this and was told the sales flier\'s are made up months in advance and they do not know if the items will be in stock when they make up the flier\'s. I told them that should give you plenty of time to order what you are advertising.. Anyway, I asked for an ETA,,nothing. I asked that they find it in another store and have it shipped to this store,,would not do it. Asked if they could trigger an inventory replenishment and was told that they can not do that either. Seems they can not do much of anythinig. I have 4 side chairs and 2 rockers that cost me over 300.00 plus the time I spent assembling them... I am taking them back to the store and plan on causing a scene. If you would like to be entertained, go to the Q-Town PA store and watch an irate customer throw 6 chairs over the customer service desk... Never again !
