I purchase a house full of furniture from Ashley Furniture in Gastonia NC ...I am ok with most of it but my kitchen table has been losing the top layer of finish...I thought this table was solid wood with a natural grain in the finish but it is plywood with a paper thin vaneer on top which after only 2 years has been chipping away and of coarse the warantee is over.I always used either a table cloth or place mats when we used the table...I paid over $700.00 for this set and now it is garbage and they told me they can't do anything about it! So beware of the crap you buy from them!
I put $1000 deposit on some furniture at Ashley Furniture the balance was $2600 with the understanding that if the entire balance was not paid in full there would be a 30% cancellation fee. Times got hard we were unable to pay the balance. I called the store and explained that we were going to cancel I was told that I would only get $700 back because the store keeps 30% My husband went to Ashley Furniture store to cancel and get our $700.00 he was told when he got there that he was only going to get $235 because it was 30% of the total selling price. They then showed us some very small writing that said that. My husband was then told that we could pick out something in the store that cost $1000 and we would not lose our 30%. We picked out some furniture the total came to $1010. They then told us no we would have to pick out some furniture for the total sale which was $2600. That did not make any sense at all. We became upset and told them they were being very dishonest and they keep telling us several different stories and the they were trying to keep all of our money they called the police and made us leave the store
It is your best interest to take your hard earned money to other furniture stores in Greenville, NC. The...
Ashley company policy states if a refund is due to the customer it will be returned the way the customer paid. I paid 1/2 cash, 1/2 atm. They credit my atm, but wanted to give me a check in 14 days for the cash I gave them. They said I was not understanding their policy but it was obvious they were the ones who didnt understand when their own policy when they wanted to give me a check for the cash I gave them. They were rude, I was hung up on by their corporate office and they did not ccared that they lost acustomer.
I was shopping for a sofa when the salesperson told me not to go to Raymour and Flanigan because they sell garbage and they also buy Ashley furniture as well. And then they said that they don't service their own products. All lies. I bought from Raymour in the past and had a good experience. I just wanted to shop around.
When I left and drove across the street, the manager kosmo? followed me over to Raymour parking lot and tried to still sell me.
Very uncomfortable. And rude.
I have only worked for Ashley for about 6 weeks. I agree with all the complaints posted. I, even with an "employee discount" will never buy from them. I work in "customer service" and know first hand what it is . I deal with back order issues / deliveries issues / damages / customer service complaints / fees / all day long ...I can honestly say .." I do not believe anything I hear or anything I say is true" I am embarrassed of it and only stay to support my family. ...I honestly feel sorry for anyone who makes a purchase . I am sure I will talk to you at some point . My apologies in advance.
My boyfriend and I ordered furniture from Ashley on Jan 1st, our order was over $8, 000. Ashley furniture was supposed to deliver all of our furniture on 3/27/10. The day before delivery we get a call saying that all of our furniture will come except for the bed. I was on the phone with them for about 2 hrs and they told me the bed will be delivered on April 3rd. On 3/27 the living room furniture, dinning room furniture, and bedroom furniture except the bed was delivered. All of the furniture was damaged except for the living room furniture. We let the company know and they sent over a technician who did nothing but take pics. The day before April 3rd we didn't hear from Ashley so we called and they said that our delivery was never scheduled. They rescheduled for another day and said the bed will not come it is on back order until June. After complaining they agreed to deliver the bed, our chest (which was damaged on 3/27 and sent back), and the dining room buffet (which was also damaged on 3/27 and sent back). The bed was delivered on 4/8, after they said it will not be delivered until June, but the chest and buffet were not delivered because they came off the truck damaged. We have called the company numerous times, but we are unable to speak to a manager and everyone we speak to can't do anything or help us.
I would highly recommend that you do not purchase furniture from Ashley furniture. I am definitely going to file a complaint with BBB. I will never shop at Ashley furniture again. They have horrible customer service, furniture, and inventory system.
I purchased a pub table and 6 chairs from Ashely Furniture in Cherry Hill. The sales person was very nice but everything after the sale has been terrible. The customer service technicians are rude and when i called today to ask for a repair to chips in my table I was told that i should have covered it and that since I didn't get the 5 year plan, there is nothing that can be done for me. I informed her that they have come out before for the same repair and she said "We've never been to your house!" Sorry lady but what happened to the customer being right and I think I know if someone has been to my home or not. She looked a little harder and saw that they had been to my house and dd not even apologize for the rudeness in her tone and basically calling me a liar.
I would not have expected damage to the table in under a year but this is already my second time calling for repairs. We had our last table for 10 years and we were just ready for something larger.
I will never shop with Ashley furniture again!
I bought their 7 piece living room for $1, 000 (actually 1, 250 total). It is total junk. The sofa and loveseat were supposed to be green, they are gray - a terrible shade of gray. And the "sofa" is much smaller than the one in the showroom, by as much as 10 inches. I measured both. The fabric is awful too, that is not microsuede. I did not return the funiture because if took 3 months to get it and their customer service is not there and does not call back.
You get what you pay for at Ashley -- JUNK!
I purchased 2 leather recliners 2 months ago (June). I received them in 3 weeks. I rejected one of them because it was delivered to me with a tear in the leather. After follow up call after call it took an additional 4 weeks to receive a new one. There was a woman in the distribution warehouse. She had no customer service skills, were extremely rude and had even hung up on me during my last f/u call. I will never purchase another Ashley product again (the only reason I did is b/c our Marine Corps Exchange Stores all sell Ashley). The salespeople in the retail store in Fredericksburg, VA were very pushy and even "bad-mouthed" the lazy boy store and told me to never purchase from them. The back cushions of the first recliner I have received have even flattened out already within 1 month (and I am not a heavy person). I purchased the top of the line leather recliners and the whole experience has been horrible. I was also never told until after my purchase "All Sales are Final" which was another blow when I had initially tried to change my mind within 24 hours of my purchase. I will take my complaints the Marine Corps Exchange Store as well.
I shopped at ashley furniture when we bought a new house i bought 3 queen size bedroom sets living room and den, kitchen set and tables. We were told it would be in in 2 weeks.Well then they said another week okay that did not happen but we were not in a hurry. they delivered finally. they apoligized and said that never happens ok.So stuppid me tells my brother in law oh go to ashley so he does we spent 4 hour picking out furniture literly yous suck.
I think that Ashley Furniture's "As Is" policy is unfair to consumers. If you purchase anything off their showroom floor (i.e. lamp, rug, decoration), you may not return it under any circumstances. I attempted to return a rug and two lamps that still had the Ashley Furniture price tags on them and they would not accept them as a return. I spent over $700 for these items. My plans changed and I do not need them anymore. They have never been used. I wanted them to deliver the items instead of buying them off the floor, but that was not an option. I can't understand why they will accept something that has been delivered to the consumer as a return; but not something that the consumer purchases off of the showroom floor.
I sent an email to [protected]@ashleyfurniture.com and received a trite response from Shannon Burris as follows:
"Thank you for your correspondence. We regret that you disagree with the nature of our AS IS policy. Unfortunately, accessories or other as-is items cannot be warrantied, serviced or returned. We are sorry to have lost your business."
It does not look like Ashley Furniture cares about their customer, nor do they care if their customer ever returns!!
Ordered from Ashley Furniture and was told that furniture would be delivered on a certain date (within about a week of the order). Got a rather rude call the afternoon before the delivery date explaining that the largest piece was damaged or split, and it would be another week or so before delivery. Waited another week and finally received the furniture and *every single piece* was wobbly or in some cases had legs that were not at a right angle to the base.
Delivery men were nice enough but explained that we'd have to send the entire set back to get a new table (it was that bad), or have someone out to repair the legs. Requested this, and have not heard from them again in over a week.
Will never shop there again, lesson learned.
Ashley Home Store SUCKS.
I paid $1, 700 for a sectional couch. Two pieces were delivered, but the third would not fit into my apartment's elevator. I was told the third piece could be "cut in half" so it would fit into the elevator. Fine. Oh and I'd have to pay an extra $200 for this service because I'm supposed to know if the ###ing couch will fit. First of all, the furniture store should be aware enough to ask questions like that, not just to get a sale. Plus, when I bought it I was in the process of moving and would have no way of knowing the dimensions of the elevator.
So, today my disassembled couch was redelivered and guess what, it wouldn't fit AGAIN. Why? Because, duh, the elevator isn't tall enough to fit it. The idiot who took it apart did not spit it in half. All he or she did was take the back off. No ### it won't fit.
So, once again, I am couchless and was told to expect a phone call.
Never buy anything from Ashley Furniture unless you can pick it up yourself. They're delivery is awful. And you will probably be without the furniture you bought for at least a month.
I say, go to IKEA.
I received delivery of a sofa. When the delivery guys left, I noticed two long grooves in my hardwood --...
We purchased ashley furniture about a year and half ago and thefurniture is so bad that we need to purchase new. we can to ashley thinking they would be a better store than slumberland but we where wrong and we will never purchs anything from you again. i dont feel i should have to pay the full amount to have every recliner fixed and the sofa does not hold up at all the leather is already wearing out. the guy from customer service was not help and the sales people where even worse if you can believe that very unhappy.
I bought a sofa and 2 chairs in 2005. Sofa cost $1000, chairs cost $700 each. This LR set was only used when we had company in the winter months (holidays etc). When we are home, we only use the kitchen area to hang out, and in the summer we hang out outside on our deck. This past holiday season I noticed the sofa was sagging in the middle when someone sat on it. I took it upon myself to take off the dust cover, and found the frame was snapped. Not only was the frame snapped, but it was clear someone had tried to fix it. I can tell it was a repair because the screws didn't match. I called Ashley, and they refered me to the store. I realized I had purchased an extended warranty and pursued that only to be told it was expired, and refered back to the store. I intend to go to the store just for kicks, but I already know what the outcome will be. Bottom line, I was sold a broken sofa which was repaired. Any business that will sell you a broken / repaired item without disclosing what happened is not worthy of your business. Buyer beware.
I purchased a nice black leather couch set (3-2-1) last August. After it was delivered we found that the leather quality was not great (to put it nicely). After about 5-6 weeks we couldn't hold it in any longer and we contacted Ashley. They sent out a technician who pretty much found the same issues that we found. Scratched leather, poor leather quality, non fills in the back areas... After talking to them again they said they have to send a supervisor out to look at it again. Also this person wrote down all the issues that he found.
After waiting for a week, I called Ashley again just to find out that they think that it is ok to sell bad quality. They told me that they will not do anything about it. I have written the BBB as well as the Consumer Trade Agency and I have contacted my attorney. I have talked to every supervisor or Manager in Customer Service. Unfortunately, I have no other choice than to sue them. I have a witness listening in when their technician was at my house saying that the set is not what it should be.
Very disappointing that Ashley thinks they can sell bad quality and then act like this in an economy like that.
BEWARE, their warranty is not worth the paper it is printed on!
We ordered an entire set of livingroom fruniture. One end table and the sofa table came defective according to ashleys technicians. I was promised that on the second attempt a manger would inspect the furniture. After the second attempt came with deep scratches in it I went to the store and they verified that no mager inspected the delivery. Attempt number three came and my wife noticed a bad scratch in the table. She also saw the delivery guys assembling the table outside our home, . OBVIOUSLY it had not been inspected by ashley manager as promised for a second time. Ashleys is aweful. No response from the manager (Michelle) from Ashleys in Linden. NJ who i called directly.
I have a bedroom set delivered on November 17, 2009. Upon delivery, the headboard was cracked and sent back...
