Burlington Coat Factory / poor service!

1 United States Review updated:

I cant believe the store has any costumers left by the way they treat there customers. My daughter registered at the baby depot. I had to order a bedding set because they didn't have at the store.They called me told me it was in and they automatic put it on layaway. I had a coupon to use but because the item was already on sale I couldn't use it. If the item was on clearance i could have. They have a big sign up in the store how they will never leave there customers unhappy. Well this customer was very unhappy and even customer relations left me unhappy. They don't really care about there customers. They just want to stick to there guns. Also the person in the store which name was arron was very rude. I shop in the store at Peoria Illinois. Which I wont be shopping there anymore and will tell others not to shop there. Thank you very much for reading this complaint!

    I completely agree with all the complaints and also wonder how Burlington Coat has survived all this time by treating its customers like crap. I bought a hand-held video game on the premise that it worked. When I got home and opened the package, it did not work. I figured the battery included must have needed replacing. When I opened up the back, I found the included battery had ruptured and leaked battery acid all over the battery compatment rendering the unit permanently damaged. When I tried to return it, I was told store credit only. They had no other games in stock for me to exchange it for. I bought the game in good faith assuming it would work, but now they keep my money for store credit only. I feel they stole my money under false pretenses, and for $8.47, they lost a customer for life. That was back in 1996. I used to spend between $120-$150 per year at that chain before that incident. I was afraid to ever buy anything in that store again, fearing it would be defective, and I would be out the money. I still wonder how they are still in business!!

    I agree 100%!!! I am currently trying to contact a district manager due to the lack of good customer service. Because my beloved grandmother died a few days ago, I was in Burlington shopping for clothing for the funeral. I'd spent approximately 2 hours matching up items (suits, shirts, ties and shoes) for my children to wear to the funeral and the wake. As I was checking out, the cashier called the manager for an over-ride due to a clearance markdown. The manager refused to acknowledge the marked down price. Her reasoning, as she stated, was that the price was marked down in pen. She stated that they never do markdowns in pen. I asked if she were implying that I had marked the item down myself. I really didn't appreciate that implication. She went to check the price of the other suits. It wasn't an astronomical discount. The $34.99 price was cut to $21.98 . Because it was a clearance item, it was the last one. However, the manager noticed that it was mis-matched. The jacket was a size 10 and the pants were an 8. The suit jacket and pants were tagged together with the price tag. I hadn't noticed that myself. However, with only one day until the funeral and 4 children to find items for, I would have still bought it. I asked if the price was slashed due to the suit being mis-matched. I assumed that since there was not another one like that, it had probably been marked down for that reason. The manager was soooooo extremely rude and refused to honor that price. I stated to her that I was not employed there, and that it was not my job to identify mis-priced items or mis-matched items. She stated that as an employee, the could not possibly check the prices as they are being tagged and put out onto the sales floor. At that point, I requested the number of a District Manager. I was provided a hand written paper that consisted of a first name "Ron" (no last name). It took the manager approximately 10 minutes to look that info. up. I was sooooo dis-satisfied that I refused to purshase the other items that I had chosen (shirts, ties, pants, and 2 pair of dress shoes! The manager was disrespectful, mean and out right rude. I tried the number given to me, and the answering machine message that I received did not identify the "Ron" person as a District Manager for Burlington! I am so upset. Now, I am forced to start shopping all over again for a service that will be held tomorrow. If anyone has any contact info, please share. I certainly will never shop there again!!!
