Direct Buy / Poor Business Practices
I am a former empoyee of Direct Buy of Memphis, TN I worked at this location for many years. Let me just say that I am so very glad that I have been let off the roller coaster!! The emotional distress that I went through from the owners and managers cursing, yelling, sexual comments and so much more unprofessional behavior was so overwhelming. I was fired because I would not disclose personal information about a member that I had befriended. I also would not sell a membership to an elderly woman on an oxygen tank.
I did experience some people who saved alot of money. These people were buiding houses around 8, 000-12, 000 square feet and buying a great deal of merchandise. For those of us who live in a more conservative home and do not purchase thousands of dollars worth of merchandise a year furnishing those home, we will not save a dime. Actually, if you are a very savvy shopper, you will pay more at Direct Buy than you would doing a little research. The membership costs thousands of dollars and that only "allows" you access for two years. After that, there is an additional yearly fee for up to five years. After the five years, if you still believe you are saving money, you can re-join all over again.
I am absolutely floored by the number of people who actually believe this is a wise investment.
With all of that said, even if you do save money on a couple of purchases, you can not see the items before you purcahse, only pictures in catalogs. You will wait several months to receive your items and you will be treated like a child in the process.
