Z Gallerie Complaint - Nightmare - Dining Room Set
BOCA RATON, FLORIDA -- To Whom It May Concern:
On July 2, 2010, my designer, wife, and myself arrived at Z GallErie store #64 located at 309 Plaza Real Boca Raton, FL 33432 to purchase the dining room set (model Loft) with eight chairs (model Studio). Proceeding to check out, I was obligated to pay 100% of the bill ($2,110.05). The amiable store representative Jacky guaranteed us the delivery date of 2 weeks to close out the deal. Little did we know the terrible nightmare we were about to experience.
Supposedly, we were promised the delivery date of 07/16/10, which was a complete lie. After many calls and reclaims, my order finally arrived on 08/27/10. Eight weeks of waiting for my order I am delivered eight chairs in horrendous conditions. Not only were they of cheap quality, they were damaged, torn, stained, and completely destroyed. Immediately my designer and I called customer service and we were told that in order to process the claim we had to take pictures of the faulty merchandise, send them in, and wait for approval from the prestigious Z GallErie because, after all, that was the “store policy.”
After many disputes it was finally approved. We were advised to switch to another set of chairs to be assured good quality. In order to receive those chairs we had to pay an extra $436.76. Again we were guaranteed the delivery date for 2 weeks. Again they arrived on 10/20/10 a total of 7 weeks and 5 days after the date purchased. Again they were damaged and again we filed a claim. The same process was repeated. The same 2 week delivery date was assured and I have yet to receive my order.
A total of 4 months and 12 days it has taken your company to deliver my order in untouched conditions. I believe this situation is completely ridiculous. Z GallErie has played with my money and my time, guaranteeing the delivery of merchandise that is obviously not doable. My experience with this company has been awful. All the aspects of this company, with the respect of the customer service representatives, are poor quality. The final product is expensive and of low quality. I will be sure to steer away any prospective buyers so they do not commit the same mistake we made.
