Best Buy Complaint - "Ooh I'm Scared"
IRVING, TEXAS -- This is my letter to the CEO. Lets see if it help.
Recently on November 10th I was in your Irving, Tx location. I wanted to purchase a Ps3 and ended up leaving without one due to the service I received by one of your managers (Bob). I was looking at my different options and found a bulk stack of Ps3's including a Hdmi cable, controller, and a remote control, attached with a rubber band. The sign placed on the this item said "Ps3 160gb 299.99". When I went to check out your cashier quoted me a much higher price. The manager on duty (Bob) met me in the gaming dept. He verified the sign and told me that it didn't state that the other items were part of the price. I agreed with him and stated he needed to clarify it better so consumers wouldn't think it was all included for the 299.99 price. He then pointed to a sign 10 feet away from the floor stack and stated it was listed. This store had 4 different locations of Ps3 bundles. As a consumer how am I to know I have to look for one sign on a shelf to find out the price of an item stacked on the floor? I am a store manager and when I am purchasing a item, I look for the small print on the signs, due to dealing with customers that don't clearly read signs. This sign did not clarify what was or was not included. None the less, I understood the pricing. The problem that I really had is with the manager that assisted me, he had an extremely bad attitude, very defensive posture, and a condescending tone. He was very rude when it came to discussing the placements of the signs. I was floored and very turned off by his tone with me. I explained that I was going to call customer relations and report him, at which point he (Bob) pulled his clipboard up to his face and then replied "ooh I'm scared." I was stunned. I have never encounter such an unprofessional manager in my life. If you do not believe me, I'm sure you have video surveillance of my encounter with Bob. Immediately after this encounter, I got into my vehicle and I called your customer relations dept. and reported this manager (Bob). I have never called and complained about any service I have received before that day. My company would have fired me immediately if I ever abused any of our customers the way I have been.
consequently, I have purchased a Ps3 at Target for 299.99 which included a free controller and a 20.00 networking card. It has now been a week since I first placed a call to customer relations and I still have not received a follow up call from anyone within your company regarding this matter. Several weeks earlier I purchased 3 laptops from this same location. Does Best Buy Even Care? It appears that this will be my last purchase made by my family at any of your stores due to your blatant lack of concern regarding this matter.
