Ashley Furniture Complaint - Stay AWAY!!!
SPOKANE, WASHINGTON -- I bought this and as I was going to show the salesman the chair I wanted (after I described it) he said He knew which one and to go ahead and sit at the counter and he would be there in a moment. I bought the furniture (a sofa too) with no problem. They didn't check to see if I had a job for sure even (I do but???). Two days after the furniture came the recliner locked up and wouldn't recline. I called the store. The receipt I had said all sales final because I thought it was a sale. But that doesn't mean they can deliver a defective piece of equipment and not fix it. Even the paperwork I got said that floor models have a manufacturers waranty. They told me that since it was a floor model that the warranty was void. I didn't even know I bought a floor model!!! The salesman said that they had the furniture in the warehouse there. I would never buy a recliner that was a floor model. It doesn't even say floor model on the receipt but I got a hard time from the store employee who said that they are not responsible for fixing it. Well I also got told after I asked about the manufacturers waranty that they did not have the number for the manufacturer that I would have to look it up online. I found out later that the store holds the warranty. The warehouse not the store gave me the number to a place in Texas who gave me more run around. I called customer service in Wisconsin finally and got unsympathetic ears that floor models have no warranty. Again I have no paper saying I have a floor model. Page five of the warranty booklet apparently has this info but I never got this pamphlet. Crooks with defective equipment. The store emplyee did offer to come out and fix it (a salesman) I thought if he tampers with it and I find a warranty it will be void for sure. eventually with enough screaming and calling the same emplyee called me and said he would have a technician call in 4 days when they are available to come out and look at it as there is a year warranty. Well I will be glad to see them and will report back if I don't. Have doubts as to the quality of this furniture.
