Badcock Furniture / Deceiving Sales Practices

1 Washington, NC, United States Review updated:

12/05/08, Terrible Sales Practices!! Purchased a sofa, 2 days later the same sofa went on sale. Stopped by store to see about getting a store credit for the difference. Was told by the Asst Mgr, who remembered my purchase, that they did not have a '30-day sale' policy. He ADMITTED that he knew the sofa was going on sale, but it was his practice, as well as the practice of the local store, NOT to tell customers, therefore, we would go ahead and purchase at the higher price. Even after admitting that he deceived me so I would go ahead and purchase the sofa, he still would not issue a store credit. Buyers Beware!! of hidden agendas in the Washington, NC store!!! Will never, ever buy from again.

    I so want to see this company get what's coming to them!!! It may take a few years, just like circut city. When you lie, cheat & deceive your customers and ( FRANCHISE') dealers and take the consumers hard earned money...What goes around comes around. Hang in there we're with you. DISGRUNTLED...

    I am not sure about this company as of yet. I went to the furniture store (BADCOCK) on Feb 10, 2009 to purchase what seems to be a VERY NICE looking living room set called "RED BRICKS" georgeous looking from the store display. I have not yet recieved it, due to the fact they tell me its on back order and that it is shipped from over seas. Okay i understood that, however they have gave me 3 different days that the furniture should be in. Today is February 27, 2009 and I still have not recieved my furniture which I am not pleased with at all, I do not appreciate the dishonesty this store has incl the managers who have told me several times that this never happens- perhaps I should have went to Kane's furniture store which I would have had my furniture within days, and quality furniture at that. I will not be purchasing anything from BADCOCK- EVER AGAIN!!!

    I came across this complaint while first searching Rooms To Go, then furniture complaints. I find 2 postings for this company and they seem pretty ridiculous. I mean, every store I purchase at doesn't allow sale prices for previous sales. Just 2 weeks ago I purchased a $24 super paper towel pack at Costcos, only to receive a coupon book the next day with a $2.50 off coupon for the same paper towel pack. The store knew this was going on sale the next day, and yet no one told me...but then again they don't have to and I don't expect them to. I think its ridiculous to think you are the only special customer in the world that deserves prenotification.

    Well I became a shopper of badcock funiture in washington, NC about a year ago and I have purchased several items from them. The first item was a dinning room table which I am please with, but the other two items is a diffrent story. I bought a kitchen table which they were supposed to order a new set for me, but brought the store display to my house trying to pass it off as new. My husband saw the scars on it and call me right away. I call the store owner and he came up with some lame excuse about the one that they order did not come in, so they thought that I would like to have something instead of nothing that they planned on bring the new one to me when they received it. Now I know that that was alie. who ever heard of something like that. Then he comes back and says, we will give you a discount if you keep the display. Now I have two chairs where the legs keeps coming off and ect. the other product was a 6 peice living room set. To start with, the delivermen scared my end table up rusing trying to put the items together, afraid of being out pass 5 oclock I guess. Now the sofa set cushion in all three chairs are flat. Mind you, we don't even sit on this set often. I complained to the manager and he sent his delivermen back out to assess the situation, they saw what I was talking about and reported it. I had to then call the store manager back, because he woun't call me about it. He proceeded to tell me that he would order some new cushions for me and it would take about 10 days. I waited and waited. three weeks later, I call back and he tells me, that they will have to send out the repair guy because the situation is so unusal. I didn't aurgue or anything. I told my husband they have just lost a loyal customer. I haven't even had the set for a year. Needless to say, I will never, ever buy from badcock funiture again. I usally shop at Ashley's anyway. Instead of being cheap, I should have kept shopping there.

    Wait until one year and that $399.95 sofa called the Red Brick by Affordable manufacturing will look like it was runover by a steam roller. They use inferior foam and Badcock knows it...and after their one year warrantly runs out they will tell you there is nothing they can do. Even though $399.95 is cheap it should last over a year! They are an awful company and I will never shop there again!

    This is the worst place to buy anything. I have bought a $2000 serta mattress from badcock. I had to wait 8 days for it to be delivered. I would of just loaded it in my truck but didnt want to anything to go wrong or mess up the warranty (like getting it wet). Once delivered the brand new boxspring came with rust, water and ripped. I was so upset I went right to the store in Augusta GA and showed them the pictures. The manager said well these things do happen and would order me a new boxspring. I then still was not happy and desided to contact headquarters. After calling them they said that it was nice for the manager to order me a new boxspring and they where sorry and would send me a $25 gift card to there store.

    Last year My husband and I purchased a living room group, dining table and chairs, and living room tables for our new home. We checked around to many different furniture stores and found the prices pretty comparable to other stores. We did however like the fact that the store was in our small town and seemed to have good customer service. When our furniture was delivered I noticed that most of the knobs on the dresser seemed to be "stripped", the living room tables had been assembled on sight and None of the bolts had been tightened. Being the handy people we are my husband and I just fixed the problems and didnt think anymore about it. Until that is about a month later 2 of the dining room chairs basically fell apart, the mattress had large dips in it because the salesman ordered the wrong frame for a king, and the living room tables finish was comming off. Needless to say we ended up with 3 new chairs, a new mattress and box springs and frame. Unfortunately, now a year later these same items are giving us problems again. Im just so tired of these items Im about to just cut my losses and go to a different store. I will NEVER purchase from this store again.

    I purchased a sofa from Badcock in Rocky Mount NC in July 2008. I never let anybody sit on the sofa until Jan, well in May I started to notice there were 2 flat cushions and the back pillows were beginning to look lumpy and bumpy. I took the cushions back to the store and it took 2 1/2 weeks to replace the cushions because the repair man only comes to the Rocky Mount store ones once a month. I brought the cushions home with my new foam and low and behold by July I was in the same predicament. Of course the warranty is up and the store will assume no responsibility. Stuck with a $700.00 mess, I'll never shop there again.

    The Whiteville, N.C. Badcock store uses double compound intrest on all sales. DO NOT under any circumstances buy from this store. I will NEVER EVER use this crap company again.

I hope they get shut down and that people get the word out there to save others from dealing with badcock and THEIR CRAPPY FURNITURE!!! BEWARE OF BADCOCK AND THEIR EMPLOYEES!!!

    Badcock Furniture - Overpriced
    Badcock Furniture
    United States

    Badcock Furniture has a temendous markup on their prices. A 32" Flat screen TV will run you about $700 at Badcock but you can get the same size TV at Brandsmart or Wal-mart for half the price. Their extended warranty is no good either it doesn't cover much for the price they will charge you.

    I'm currently sitting in my livingroom with no sofa after returning not one, not two, but three couches that were damaged as soon as we got them home and unpackaged. Honestly their products and service is crap. I had to call customer service again after she said she would call me back today. Still no answer. Still no sofa. Never, never, never again will I buy from this company. They are happy to take your money, but reluctant to help when there is a problem.

    Had this horrible experience of buying a room set for my daughter from Badcock furniture in West Palm beach, FL. Starting from the sales person, who was not rude but was very mono tone and dry that he came pretty close to being rude. Then came the delivery day which was by the way 4 days after the purchase date (the earliest option available), no estimated time of delivery was given, just the date. I called the store around 1pm where this absolutely rude wise guy who answered the phone said, " If I were you, i would sit tight and wait for ETA available". I called again around 5pm, same answer. Then finally two weirdos showed up on my door at 6pm, even though I requested to be called 30 minutes prior to their arrival, i had to wait all day until 6pm not knowing around when they would come. Both of them, did not believe in friendly responses such as thank you, you are welcome, how are you, smile etc. Then both started dumping and rolling my furniture on the floor the way I wouldnt even treat my trash bags. They conveniently, without permission lower the temperature of my Air conditiner to what they felt like should have been in the first place. The scratched my dry walls, a door and my daughters poster with their careless handling of my brand new furniture. They didnt even ask us to make sure every thing looked good when they were done...and for a good reason. As soon as they left, i noticed a major dent on the dresser. There was no way they could have missed that becuase 1. it was very obvious, 2) how could they have missed it when they hit the dresser hard against my dry wall and the door couple times on their way up. i had to call the store the next day who said that they would order the part and I would have it by next week. Next time, I will pay few hundred dollars extra and buy my furniture from larger and more reputable furniture store. I hate you Badcock furniture.

    I purchased Ashley Oak sofa & love seat in Sept of 09 from Badcock in Ft. Lauderdale. These items are Durablend(polyurethane-polycotton-leather blend). I work 12hr days and live with my retired father so you could imagine the couches dont get much reps or use. After 5-6 months they started stripping/peeling whatever terms good for you. We also bought a coffe colored dinnig set in which the chairs are literally falling apart. The table tops varnish has rubbed away. I can go on and on but you get the picture. Warranty is a scam almost $200 for the two couches. Im not just going to vent here Im dealing with the corporate office in Boca where yes sir I'm suing there pants off. Their best offer was 15% off my next purchase. I understand why my Jewish friends say "never again". Stay away from these crooks.

    I bought a living room set at a Badcock in south Florida in April 2010.
    It looked nice enough. But, 13 months later it is obvious that it is not great quality.

    NEVER WILL SHOP AGAIN AT A BADCOCK STORE!! We bought our daughter a bedroom set and while I am happy with the quality the transaction and time frame was super ridiculous! When we thought the trundle bed was on order it was found out months later that it hadn't even been ordered after checking in way to many times to see if it had come in yet and always being told it would be "next week"..and when we finally got it... there was no hard wear. This has taken 9 months to complete! They finally got our trundle bed hardware in 2 1/2 hrs ago that was sitting at another Ga store for 3 weeks! If he would have said no it was not there, I would have packed up the furniture and taken it and dumped it on their showroom floor. I have since had a baby, bought a new car, taken a vacation, had 3 major holidays in the time it has taken for this transaction to be completely final! This was the McDonough, Ga Store.

    In 2006 we bought a mattress from the Wilson NC store.It was a Serta with a Non Pro Rate. Serta states $ for $ on the date of purchase. Well this is not the way Badcocks handled this. The mattress was bought because of a surgery my husband had on his neck. When We got the mattress the air leaked out and was returned to the store. They said it was a bad mattress and they didn't make it any more. We were told to get another one. We got one of lesser value and no money returned to us. In 4 years this one dipped in the middle. They gave us another of lesser valus and no money back. Now we have another one of a lesser value that needs returning. This is crazy. Called Serta and Badcock and they say they will not give me a mattress of my first purchase as they claim!!! I have now turned them in to the BBB. Now waiting on them! Don't buy from Badcock or Serta!
