La-Z-Boy Incorporated Complaint - Don't Buy from them - Sectional recliner
WILKES-BARRE, PENNSYLVANIA -- I purchased a sectional recliner for my parents who are in their 70's and do not have all their faculties. I paid for the product upfront before delivery. The product was delivered to my parents house who let the delivery guy set up the sectional and they signed the paperwork acknowledging acceptance although they NEVER tried the product nor were they showed how the recliners worked. A day later they tried using the 2 recliners and they did not work. One did not open fully and had to be pulled open by hand and the other did open but fell down when you put your feet on it. Also the 4 pieces did NOT connect, as they were placed next to one another without being attached. I called the company 2 days later to inform them of the problem. I was told since my parents singed the acceptance paperwork all they could do was to try and repair the product. A service tech came a week later and could NOT repair the recliners nor could he attach the sections because the pieces were not aligned properly. I spoke to him via the telephone as live in another sate and he said" a new couch should be delivered" as he could not fix this one. The service tech delivered his paperwork to his boss and I now find that they want to order attachment pieces to re drill holes in the couch to make the pieces connect. Also there was NO indication on how they were going to fix the recliners. I told the service department that I wanted a new couch delivered as this one was defective from the start. I was told two disparaging comments from KAREN from the service department. The first was" my parents need to be educated on how to use the product" the second was that"our store policy is not to replace the product but to repair it" Well when you deliver a product that does not work and you take advantage of OLD PEOPLE who are trusting I find this disgusting and am very irate. I told Lazy boy that they could come and pick up this couch and I wanted a full refund. They told me NO that they would not do such and they would try and repair it again. I told them that I am going to cancel the charge on my credit card since the product delivered and totally defective. I was told by KAREN in customer service that she would reject my charge back when the credit card company called and said it was doing this out of ""SPITE"""" NEVER EVER buy a product from this company.
