Hi My name is Varun Jain. Unfortunately I was a recent customer at Ashley's furniture. This is with regard...
Shame on Ashley Furniture! DuraBllend"sofa and loveseat PEELING.
An Ashley Furniture"Dura blend"sofa and loveseat were purchased for me as a gift by a family friend. Dura blend is, allegedly, a combination of real leather and faux leather. It wasn't long before there was some minor peeling on both pieces which escalated into extreme peeling. This should NOT be happening within a few years of minor use. Both pieces are peeling in places that are never even touched! It need not be used - it shreds itself. The quality of the material (DuraBlend) is cheap!
Every day, all day, with chronic back pain, I pick up pieces of the sofa and loveseat. I find pieces on my clothing and in the shower... everywhere! I weigh 98 pounds and have no pets. The sofa and loveseat continue to peel and come apart. There is no excuse for such poor quality.
On the DuraBlend information card the first descriptive word is - durable! That word should have a question mark following it. (Durable?)... Another descriptive phrase on the card is"sophisticated look and feel."Please see the photos. Does that say sophistication? It should say -"Belongs in dumpster."Sophistication? I am embarrassed to invite people into my home. When I do, they always leave with pieces of the sofa and loveseat attached to their clothing. A souvenir of"sophistication."
Stated on the tag is -"Made by Ashley furniture Industries, Inc."Well Ashley, I need a replacement sofa and loveseat of a similar color and shape - but pieces that will not peel that are actually durable and sophisticated in look and feel.
Sick of looking at shredded furniture claiming to be"durable."
Electrical recliner sofas I bought this sofas in 2015 after a couple months they start peeling I go back to the store with pictures after they saw them they told me to send them three pictures of the sofas they were nice and they told me that they want to help, this store is located in North Brunswick New Jersey on route one after that they give me another contact from some lady saddle which I was calling her and emailing her for a couple months finally on the end she respond and she give me another contact email and phone number she said to me that I can ask for Joe and he's going to repair my sofa I don't know where they're located but I'm gonna give you the phone number [protected] and email [protected]@ashlyHs.com just to let you know that this guy was lying to me for seven months he was saying send me the picture and then he was going to lose the picture when I call back he told me to send them again and again and that was going on and on into thousand 17 before Christmas time she told me finally did he order the material, and you don't call him again because he's gonna call me back when the material is there and he's going to come to fix the sofa now it's March 2018 and he call me and he told me to send pictures again because he didn't even remember what he was lying to me so I send the pictures again and after two days he call me back he said that they discontinue this product and he cannot help me three years They were wasting my time and lying to me now I'm going to call Better Business Bureau and I suggest you everybody who has a problem to call there to
We purchased a Living room set from Ashley Furniture in July or August of 2013.
It has started peeling over the last few months and I have researched the internet and found that Ashley is aware of the defect in workmanship. I have never had a living room set peel like this and not last. It has been well documented that Ashley built an inferior product and needs to take responsibility for their poor product
We purchased a bedroom set from the Ashley Furniture Homestore in Shiloh, IL on Greenmount Rd on 1/19/18, which upon delivery on 2/1/18, was damaged. We schedule a time for Ashley to come out and exchange the damaged footboard, and were given a 3 hour time window on Saturday (2/10/18). No one showed up and no one called to say they were running behind. My husband called the store in Shiloh, IL and spoke to the manager Jim, who said there was nothing he could do, it happens, and to call the Customer Care Team. My husband did this and was told, nothing could be done until Monday (2/12) and someone would call that day to schedule a new appointment. Instead, my husband received an automated call on Monday, requesting that he confirm the appointment time that has been scheduled for Tues (2/13), when we would both be at work. My husband again called the Customer Care Team, and spoke with a an individual who could not explain how the appointment was made and when he asked for a refund or compensation was told no. When he asked for a manager's info, he was told he would not be given the information. I reached out to Ashley via their chat service on the website on Monday. I messaged with Alissa, who after hearing our issues, provided me with a number to Corporate. She then said, she could not assist me when I told her I wanted to actually talk to someone who would help me, and then said she was terminating the chat to assist other customers. I called the Corporate number she provided when I got home from work and after sitting on hold for about 30 minutes, was told that they could not locate my account information, and I would have to be transferred to my local Customer Care Team to have the issues resolved, this is the same Customer Care Team/Line that did not assist my husband. I spoke with an individual, and explained the situation. I informed the agent that Ashley clearly is unable to provide an exchange, therefore, I would keep the damaged footboard and would like the cost of the footboard to be refunded. Again after being placed on hold numerous times, I was told I would not be refunded the cost of the footboard, and if I did not want to exchange the footboard, I would only be given a 10% discount off of the cost of the footboard, which is $24. I told her this was unacceptable and ultimately gave in to scheduling another appointment. She assured me the Tues (2/13) appt. was cancelled and that a new appointment was made for Wed (2/14). She told me I would receive a call 24hrs out giving me a timeframe for the delivery on 2/14. On 2/13, my husband received a phone call from the delivery team stating they were on their way. He told them that was supposed to be cancelled and no one is available for the exchange. The delivery men said they were not notified of the cancellation. After my husband told me this, I called the Customer Care Team and requested to speak with a manager immediately. After sitting on hold for close to 30 minutes I was connected to Shawntez. He told me there was nothing that could be done, the appointment on Wednesday could not be met, and the only recourse I had was to schedule another exchange appointment and see what will happen. He became rude and attempted to talk over me several times. He told me I would not receive any compensation for the issues and I would not receive a refund for the cost of the footboard in lieu of exchanging it. When I asked for his manager's info he told me his manager only gives out that info at his discretion. I said then contact him now and tell him the situation because I want to speak with someone else. He told me no, he will not get that info and would not allow me to speak with anyone else. I disconnected with him after telling him I would be filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I then contacted the local store, and coincidentally spoke with Jim, the same manager that told my husband there was nothing he could do. After telling him I wanted to speak with someone over him or someone in charge of the Customer Care Team, he finally said he would make some phone calls. I asked him during the course of the conversation what the return policy was because I was considering returning the bedroom set, to which he responded that because it has been in my home, it could not be returned. Jim made some calls and called me back to tell me I would receive a phone call from someone within the hour. After 2 hours of waiting, I called Jim back to tell him no one had called. He said he would make some more calls and a short time later, I received a call from a woman with the Customer Care team, who actually provided assisted my needs and provided a satisfactory resolution. She was able to provide a partial refund for the delivery and also scheduled an appointment that was convenient for us. She called back today, to confirm the delivery date and said we would receive another call regarding the specific time frame for delivery of the new footboard on Friday (2/16). In addition, we decided to cancel the $500 protection plan we purchased at the time we bought the furniture, because the paperwork we received stated we had the right to cancel this plan for any reason within the first 30 days. We knew the terms of the plan, that if we didn't make any claims in 5 years, we would have a $500 store credit to use, and we have decided never to purchase from Ashley again. After contacting the number on the back of the protection plan we were directed to call the store. My husband again, had to speak with Jim, who said we could not cancel the protection plan because we received 60 months financing. My husband told him that no one said at the time of the purchase that the 60 months financing was contingent on us purchasing the $500 protection plan and further, the paperwork says we can cancel. Jim stated, well you have to come in the store then, and you can only receive 12 months financing. My husband said fine, went to the store, cancelled the plan and the financing was changed from 60 months to 12 months. I am astounded at the lack of customer service, especially because while I sat on hold multiple times, I listened to the same recording stating how much Ashley values their customers, and how grateful they are to the customers who accept their furniture in to their homes. Nothing could be further from the truth, after what we went through. Ashley only cares about making sales, and once the sale is made, the customer no longer matters. I will never purchase anything from Ashley again, and I will strongly discourage everyone I know from making the biggest mistake of their lives by shopping at Ashley. Potential buyers beware, the Customer Care Team is not interested in providing customer care, they apparently have the authority to refuse to assist customers and to refuse to provide their superiors' information when they are rude and not performing their jobs.
We purchased our very first furniture set for our first home! Black leather couches, tables etc. 10/2/2012. No issues until about 8 months ago when started to notice the top of one of the couches pealing. Do not understand as they are hardly even used... and never even touch the TOPS! We spent more than $4500 here at Ashley in one day! Only bought leather because We did not want something that was not going to last! What a ripoff. Called and got the runaround to just gave up. Will never recommend or ever purchase from them again.
I'm writing this email out of extreme frustration and I'm feeling so helpless and regret the decision of buying the sofa from this store.
I bought a 2500$ worth sofa and love seat and within an year the leather came off.. I've been trying to get the leather replaced since 4 months now and it just takes forever
It's been 4 months now and I still have not been able to get my problem rectified. I called probably more than 10 times in the last month or so and every time I get one answer: "Our systems are going through an upgrade and we cannot do anything as of now."
- First, they accept that it is a manufacturing problem and that you will get my leather replaced.
- Even after confirming my address on the phone, the leather was sent to my old address.
- It takes another week or two to get leather delivered to my new address.
- It takes one more month for the technician to arrive, only to tell me that the leather does NOT fit my sofa
- Since then I've been trying to call you almost every week and no one seems to take responsibility.
- And to add to all this frustration, last time I called, customer support manager tells me that I might not even be covered .If I was not covered, why was'nt this not communicated to me ealier and why did they waste my time sending the leather?
I'm extremely disappointed with the service and would not recommend Ashleys to anyone I know.
I purchased 6 upholstered dining room chairs in Sept 2016. A few weeks ago I noticed a crack on the wood piece which connects the front & back legs. I was talked into purchasing the Protection Plan. I phoned them and was advised that this was not covered since it was structural. I contacted the Ashley furniture store in Poughkeepsie, NY where I purchased these chairs. The 2 salesmen that had helped me with this purchase are no longer employed there. I told them about my chair and was advised that since they were over a year old, they were no longer covered under the warranty. I mentioned that these chairs are only used about 6 times a year since they are dining room chairs and only used for Holiday dinners with my family. I cannot believe that after only 15 months the chair would actually crack. I explained that I was dissatisfied with their response and was then called back to say that they would send the wooden piece for my husband to replace. We received the package yesterday and it contained 2 front legs, not the wood piece that would connect the front & back legs. I called Ashley today and was referred to Customer Service. I spent most of my day today speaking to many representatives from Ashley. Bottom line is that they said they cannot get the correct piece that is needed. I would have to either purchase the chair again @ a discounted price (not much of a discount) or pay for a technician to come and fix it. I told them again this was unacceptable. I have furniture over 40 years old and have never had any of it crack!!! I asked them if I were to order a new chair, then somehow the manufacturer must have the part that I need or he would not be able to replace it. I was told they could do nothing more for me. Also I was told the manufacturer is from South Carolina. Well the pieces on my chair say "Made in China". This was my first time I ever purchased furniture from Ashley and it will be the last time. I have 5 other chairs and am I too be concerned that these may crack as well. Since they said they could not locate the part that I need, I asked if they would cover the cost of the technician to fix the chair and I was told NO!!! This is absolutely outrageous. I cannot believe that a supposedly reputable company as you claim to be will not go the extra mile and help out a customer. I have learned a hard lesson. In the past I have always bought furniture from Raymore & Flanagan and I will again return to them. I will never recommend your store and will tell my story to all friends & family. This is outrageous. How can a company sell furniture and
then after 1 year not be responsible. A horrible company that should be more responsible. I wanted to get in touch with the CEO but was told they could not give me this information. I hope this letter gets to the top of the company so that no one else has to go through the aggravation that I have had these past few weeks dealing with your company and getting no satisfaction at all. I would also appreciate a response to this complaint.

I would never buy furniture from Ashley again and I will tell anyone looking for furniture to go elsewhere. Full L shaped sofa with ottoman, reddish brown leather, peeling with in a year and does not take touch up paint.
We don't have a lot of money to spend on furniture and this was a big deal for us. The salesman was annoying and deceptive in his description...we should have looked elsewhere but believed what he said about the quality.
The cushions are flattening pretty badly too...we are not overweight people and there's just the two of us. Feel very taken by this company.
You should be out of business
I bought 2 leather couches back in January 4. First they were delivered late instead of January 28 back in...
We purchased this and a warranty for 5 years. I noticed tearing on a cushion and filed a warranty claim. After many phone calls I finally found it we were denied a repair or replacement. It is under [protected]. We did not want a new sofa or monies, just a new cushion. We didn't even know it was not leather and found out it was pleather which we never heard of. When we asked why we weren't told the manager of that store said they don't have to tell you. We would never have bought it if we know it was not leather. Since we have been denied any satisfaction my husband who is 86 and has Alzimers disease and myself 78 and in a wheel chair intend to go there to the University store on the next sale day or before and sit outside with the cushion and tell people what they have done. Also we have a web site called NextDoor in Charlotte, NC which have a following of 14, 078 people right now. We already on the site and lo and behold so many complaints on the store. One couple is coming to my home to help me fight you and another has given me the name of a news person on the Charlotte Observer to contact which I will. Shame on this store for treating the elderly this way and lying to us.
Ordered Leather and solid wood Couch and Loveseat, The day it was delivered the guys hit my Door and damaged it, The next Day the leg fell off the couch and the staples showed thru the back of the Vinyl couch!!! I spent 5000 Dollars on Living room set and Patio Furniture and was assured it was made to what I ordered. # weeks later they finally picked up the Trash they call Living room Furniture and kept 775.00 out of my cash Payment to restock??? Really maybe if they didn't restock the junk back into the store and actually made GOOD furniture that they charge for they wouldn't have so many Complaints and Law suits!!! See ya in Court!!!
One of my dining room chairs broke when I sat down in it and in August I called to have it fixed with my protection plan/warranty. After many calls to them as they never called back, I was finally told the 'part' (even though the entire chair was broken so I did not understand what 'part' they were going to send me to magically fix the chair) would be shipping...in October! Finally, three weeks after their original October date, the part arrived and I then had to wait even longer to schedule a technician to come fix the chair. They did not allow me to pick a time frame so when the guy showed up, he showed up...and somehow managed to make the chair even worse. When I put in a complaint and asked to simply exchange the terrible chair for a new one at a local store, (after a week later and no returned phone calls), I was told the request was denied by 'management'. I am now waiting for another 'part' which comes next week and then a new technician which comes the following week to try to fix the chair again. This has been a complete circus and never ever again will I shop at Ashley until they can assure me they will be fixing this problem of mine and fixing is SOON!
I purchase over $10k worth of furniture in cash! Which also included $500 for the 5 year montage warranty plan. The purchase was made on september 13, 2017. It has been over a month and I have not received my warranty plan. I called on three different dates and was told "it's in the mail"! I called today and mentioned that I talked with someone on the 19th and requested that they not only send me a copy via e-mail, but also make sure to send the original warranty in the mail. I was told I should have the e-mail within an hour and the warranty was going out the same day. Today is october 23rd and I called again and this time told that it was placed in the mail today and that the e-mail is going out today and I should have it by the end of the day. From this point on... I will never purchase any furniture again from ashley furniture and in the future... If I make any other furniture purchases and the company offers montage warranties... I will walk out of the store. I still never received copies of the montage warranty for a couch I purchased 3 years ago from ashley furniture. This is the main reason I have been on this company about receiving the actual warranty after spending 10k cash. This has been very disappointing and to see the number of complaints that the warranty company has... My next step is contacting better business bureau then social media. I must make sure that our young people spending their hard earn money learn quick about getting ripped off. Please make sure that you get what you pay for. It's all a racket these days. #customerstillwaiting
We have had our furniture for 3years and we bought extended warranty it is peeling or fading anyway I have sent serial numbers in and pictures but a couple pieces I couldn't find the serial numbers they discontinued the one like we got in June they said they would replace a couple of pieces but it would be a different color it sure is a eyesore in a practically new house sure you wouldn't want 2 different color doors on your car for example
If you can’t beat a competitor’s price, then be honest and let the customer know. Don’t say you can, then...
To whom it may concern,
I went three weeks ago to Ashley's furniture store in Youngstown Ohio . I had purchased one bedroom, one living room and a dining room, so basically my whole apartment. I had a terrible new sales lady, and had to spend 6hours at the store in order for her to make that correct order, only multiple mistakes happened:
- Typed in the wrong address and messed up my credit score because of it
- Made me apply to two financing company which lowered my credit score even more.
- Spent literally 7hours at Ashley's furniture place on my only week day off.
- Despite all that, I came back t Ashleys to add a mattress and a night stand added to my plan, that took another 4hours on my day off because the same new sales lady wasn't trained about the mattress and the manager kept leaving her alone with an order she doesn't know how to put in. The district manager said he was going to send me a 100$ gift certificate for all this trouble, which of course I never received.
- When I received the furniture order confirmation, turns out she had forgot to put in a table set that was offered with the living room. Called to make sure they add that, the manager said she can't 'magically' create the table for me, and that it was my fault I didn't check the order with the sales lady before I leave. The manager gave me a different price on the whole living room then the one that was offered when I was there, stating that I was the one who misunderstood the offer, and basically calling me a liar. Manager added the tables for me for an extra 216$ and said she can't deliver it until the following week The Tv stand was ruined and they only called me the day before to tell me about that and to reschedule its delivery. All of that knowing that i'm a physician that works at a hospital and had to take a day off to be able to receive the furniture. Despite all of that, I agreed to have the Tv stand and the tables delivered the following week only if they can be delivered on the same day at the same time because I can't leave work whenever they want me to. So the manager had agreed and assured me I will be receiving both orders the same day.
- The following week, I only got the Tv stand delivered. I called and they told me the tables are coming in on a different truck in an hour so I had to ask for another extra hour off my job to receive it. An hour and a half later, I call asking about it and I was told it was shipped for the wrong address and therefore the order was canceled, without anyone bothering to call me about it. I asked to speak for that same manager who said she has already spoken to me before and she's busy to talk to me about it now.
In resume, I had the most terrible and inconvenient experience with this company, I was insulted and mistreated and I hadn't received not even a verbal apology about all the mistakes they did.
I bought this in June, the wing nut that attaches the lamp to table broke, it is metal. You can't replace it because the plug prevents you from putting a new one on it, I took it back and talked to manager, but he refused to do anything about it, I have spent at least 3000 dollars on furniture, and this table was 100$, it lasted two months. I am writing, because I think this is unacceptable.
My last is Lopez and a few days I went in with my 18yr old daughter and a Frank Sandoval aproched us at first he didn't seem to be too interested in what I was saying he kept looking back a the customer service gal named Holly who stands at the entrance whi did not greet us to begin with...when I asked if there was someone else that could help us he apologized and foucs only to filrt with my daughter 30min into the purchase..I went in the following day and again Mr. Sandoval standing and the front desk with Holly it looked like he gave her a kiss as I walked in!! I thought to my self OK maybe that's his wife he had mention he was married the day before and he had an 18yr old where I thought it was bazar since he was firlting with mine! And Monday 24 of July I went to with a friend who needed to buy a living room set . again Frank and Holly at the front didn't greet us they were soo wrap up on their sex from the other night that they didn't even notice us standing there I had had enough I thought this was a furniture store not high school! I asked Holly what her last name was so that I can speak to a manager on their Actions which only triggered her she started yelling saying I was just jeouls and old!!! I left the store embraced called and spoke a Albert Morales who claimed to be the store manager who didn't say anything just gave me a fake 1800 number to the main store so he said!!! I have never experienced anything like this and I have been a customer of Ashley's for 10yrs my family and most of our friends only go to Ashley's I am disgusted and won't be shopping there in fact going to cancel my recent pursheses.
I purchased a set of Faux Leather furniture for my family room. We only had the furniture for a short time before it started to peel. The whole set has completely fallen apart as far as the leather on the cushions, arms, and back of the pieces. I actually threw the sofa in the dump because it was so bad and the pieces of leather were flaking all over the carpet and causing such a mess. Nobody wants to sit on that!
Needless to say I am going to have to buy new furniture to replace this. I won't be shopping at Ashley Furniture again. I never thought that replacement would be an option or had any hope of getting a refund because I didn't buy the extended warranty but I don't think that this product should be sold at all to the unsuspecting customers who work very hard for their money and are certainly being taken advantage of.
