Dear Sir/Madam


I purchased a Sofa from your Northampton store in October 2016. The purchase cost was approx. £1800.00. In November 2016 I discovered the cushion material was flawed. I contacted the Northampton store and your aftercare department following an inspection from your accessor they were replaced. I was very happy with the replacement cushions.

March 2018
I once again contacted your aftercare department as I was having the same issue with the replacement cushions. The aftercare team informed me that an accessor had to check the cushions. After 3 weeks an accessor visited my home, inspected and took photos of the cushions. I was later contacted by the aftercare dept. who confirmed that the material was once again flawed and that they would endeavour to replace.

April 2018
The Manager of your Northampton store contacted me and asked that I visit the store to choose a replacement sofa. My husband visited the store (as I had subsequently relocated to Northern Ireland) there was nothing in the store of equivalent value that was appropriate. At this stage the store manager took the batch number & colours so that he could contact the manufacturers and request replacement cushions. The manger confirmed that the replacements could be posted to me as I had moved to Northern Ireland; I was in agreement with this offer.

August 2018
The Northampton store manager contacted me to inform me that unfortunately the manufacturer could not replace items as the material was no longer in stock and that if I wanted a replacement sofa I would be liable for the shipping costs as you do not have any stores in Northern Ireland.

I realise your company has offered a replacement which I was happy with but I feel that it has taken too long to get to this resolution (approx. 6 months) as a result I am now being faced with a shipping bill & the inconvenience of collecting the replacement from Scotland. I would like to add that I am in no way criticising the manager in your Northampton store as he has been more than helpful throughout this process; unfortunately he was just unable to provide a solution in a timely manner.

I would appreciate a response on how we can move forward to find a resolution to this issue? I am not in a position to pay the shipping costs or indeed to travel to Scotland to collect the replacement sofa.

Thank you very much for you attention a speedy response would be very much appreciated.

Kind Regards

Mrs Sharon Webster
