Thread: Furniture shopping

  1. #1

    Default Furniture shopping

    Has anyone purchased from Home Design & Furniture? We purchased a couch and a recliner back on March 22. We where told 4 - 5 weeks well look at this its 9 weeks and still waiting for the recliner.
    THey gave us someone else's couch and now I am sure that person is waiting.
    Customer Service is terrible - Our neighbor purchased furniture in St. Augustine and got it one week later.

    Just was wondering what others thought.

    thanks

    And when I do go there they make it sound like it all my fault and they are doing me a favor! Hello Customer Service please. I was taught the customer is always right and make them happy. We really have tried to keep the business here in town but every time we do it comes back and bites us.

    Well except for SEARS here. We did purchase a fridge from them Gene was our sales person. Very nice, great service will shop with them again.

    If we are not standing and looking at and being able to touch our product, we are not buying! I really hate waiting and it shouldn't have to be that way!

    Problem is there are hundreds of fabrics and leathers to choose from and a store can't have at least one of each in stock...but, they should be honest when they tell you how long it will take. My daughter-in-law is a designer and works for a high-end furniture store. When people purchase from them, if they special order something and it takes longer than expected or if they have an immediate need for something they will loan them pieces until their special order comes in.

    Thats how I got my COUCH! LOL I gave them a one star in within an hour they where on the phone saying "another customer ordered the same couch as you but they don't want it right now so do you want to take this one" Now all I get its coming in next week.

    Post amended automatically

    No special order it was something they had on the floor and its an Ashley couch. TOld 4 to 5 weeks. No problem but 9 weeks later now I have a problem. We went the recliner but not sure what we are going to do anymore.

    I think the worse thing is they way we are being spoken too. The sales person has a nasty way. But again its not like we expect anything better from a Palm Coast business. Been here too long and this is really just another reason why we don't do business here.

    Next you want to talk about the carpet we have called about cause it needs to be "restretched". Another Palm Coast company - "I will get back to you in a few days" after waiting a few days I called the person went on VACATION!

    We had to wait nearly a Year for a recliner and ottoman , they had to wait on a new run of the fabric , Thankfully it matched Ok by the time we got it because the house is not occupied daily.

    I think sometimes the sales people aren't as forthcoming as they should be with how long it "could" take because they don't want to discourage the buyer...and once they have your $$$....

    Soon after I moved here I ordered, through my DIL, a new sofa and two wingback chairs. The manufacture sent back a message saying that they had only enough fabic for one chair. So, they said either to pick another fabic or wait until they got the fabric back in as they wouldn't do one chair and then "hope and pray" that when the fabic came in it would be an "exact" match for the other chair and the pillows for the sofa. I stuck with the original choice of fabic and it took about 10 weeks for me to get it. The manufacturer is King Hickory.

    Use to be that almost all of the furniture sold in the US was made in NC; not so anymore, especially the less expensive brands are made in China lending to longer times for delivery IMO.

    Funny how things magically happen! Glad you are getting it today and hope it was worth your wait.

    I don't get out much... but are you saying that many companies in PC are not good to customers? Curious as I did experience this with the roofing company the week we moved in. Great employees... awesome job on the roof... But the owner was probably the most hateful man I have met. I've never seen customers treated that way and was more than shocked at his behavior.
