Haverty's / High prices from employees point of view

Let me start off by saying that no one should ever shop at Haverty's and here are reasons why.

1: Furniture markup--- Haverty's furniture is so tremendously marked up far more than any other furniture store. Take a piece that costs $999.00 in the store, Haverty's cost only $299.00. A piece selling for $1, 999.oo, again Haverty's cost is $599.00.

2: Quality of product--- Haverty's product is not the best by comparison. I have seen so many returns because of the unit falling apart or just being delivered damaged.

3: Delivery cost--- Haverty's has raised their delivery charge from $49.95 to $199.99-$699.99. Haverty's just raised 60% of their product to cover high fuel costs and now they want you to pay another price to have your product delivered. You DO NOT have to pay this charge.If anyone pays this, then shame on you.

4: Protection plan (Gold-in Home)--- This "protection" for your furniture is a big joke. Salespeople are given free rang to lie about what this worthless plan covers. Salespeople get paid at least 25% of what you spend for this. The price can range from $199.00-$699.00. If you buy this plan, you might as well kiss your money goodbye. NEVER buy this. It does NOT work.

5: "NO-Haggle policy"--- Haverty's has started this no-haggle policy meaning that they will not discuss price with you. They believe and want you to pay what they say. Haverty's may tell you that their product is a Haverty's brand also. All of this is bull. Haverty's makes none of their product. You can buy 80%-90% of their product from another company at 1/2 the price of Haverty's. Just ask who makes the item and shop around. If they say that it is a Haverty's brand, laugh and walk away. They want you to believe this junk.

I should know, I worked for Havertys for over two years. I know all there is to know about this company.

    1: Furniture markup--- Haverty's furniture is so tremendously marked up far more than any other furniture store. Take a piece that costs $999.00 in the store, Haverty's cost only $249.00. A piece selling for $1, 999.oo, again Haverty's cost is $599.00. A King Tempur-pedic Mattress that sells for $3, 199, Haverty's paid only $1, 299.00. You can buy 80%-90% of their product from another store if you know who makes it and all you have to do is just ask. They may give you the bull that it is a Haverty brand (Haverty's does not make any of their product).

    2: Protection plan--- This is called "Gold-in Home". Each salesperson is pressured to sell you this bogus plan and instructed to lie about what it does and how it works. This plan can cost you up to $699.00 and it does not do what it claims. Each salesperson can make up to 25% of the total cost if you purchase this worthless plan. If you buy this, kiss your money good-bye.

    3: Delivery cost--- Haverty's has raised their delivery charge from $49.95 to $199.99-$699.99. If anyone pays this, then shame on you.

    4: "No-Haggle" policy--- Haverty's has started a no-haggle policy meaning that the company is not going to lower their prices for anyone at anytime. Haverty's will tell you that you cannot buy their product anywhere else so you must pay what they are asking. This is bull. If you firmly ask who makes their product and get a company name, you can find the same item somewhere else at a fraction of Haverty's costs. If they claim that it is a "Haverty's" collection, be aware that Haverty's does NOT make any of their products. It is all made by other companies. You DO NOT have to pay what they are asking.

    How do I know these things---- I am a former employee. If anyone has any questions then just email me @ enoch17@wmconnect.com for full details on anything concerning Haverty's. Email me before you buy and I will save you time and money.
