completely awful!!!

So I got my mother in law and my mom a very cool (And very expensive) edible arrangements. For those who don't know it's fruit cut, formed, and dipped in chocolate (Some)
And beautifully arranged in a vase or watering can or whatever. My mother in law calls and thanks me at 1;30pm. It's 5:00 now and other than this morning haven't heard a word from my mom?
So I give her a shout and she says nothing has come yet. Now i'm thinking if they haven't come by now (7:38) than there not coming... Right? Oh no, they told me over the phone that
They have until 9pm thats right you're reading this correctly 9pm, 9:00, nine o' clock?? And they said if they don't don't show by then to call them and they'll try
To work something out-wtf hows about we work something out now? What mother wants anyone showing up on their doorstep at nine pm?? Even if it was ed mcmann w / a check? (I'm sure she'd get over it quickly tho:)

I didn't bother to read about delivery times especially on sundays seeings that the store closes at 2pm? So I wasn't all that worried.

I'm pretty livid and I don't get mad ever! But they're messing w / mom on her day! Am I a bit of a mamas boy-sure, but what son really isn't?

My point of the rant is... If she receives this delivery at 9, in 3 hours mothers day will have ended. Even now I feel they kinda ruined her day! I felt bad because I had to work today
So last week I ordered a $139 worth of fruit. Now I feel even worse. I know it's not the end of the world and i'm being a bit dramatic but it's just bad business. Oh and I checked my order form online,
And in very very small print it does say "on busy holidays it could take up till nine pm" never again...

She gets it the next day on her door step left out over night no phone call to me or her nothing!
They also forgot the ballon bundle??!! The fruit was't even ripe or sweet - horrible!

I left an email yesterday morning telling them about this and they have yet to get back to me... Unbelievable!!!

horrendous customer service

My boyfriend decided to surprise me with one of edible arrangements bouquets for valentine's day. He pre-ordered, and when he went to the store to pick it up, the customer service representatives could not find his order. After keeping him waiting for twenty minutes, they went into the back and the owner then accused him of already picking up his order and attempting to get another one for free. Despite having no proof to substantiate such an accusation and his insistence that he did not already pick it up, the owner of the store rudely insisted that he did. Disgusted, mauricio angrily told the owner that he wanted to cancel the order and was told that the order could not be canceled because it was already made, and a bouquet was practically thrown at him "just to get [him] out of [there] . "

This was the fourth or fifth bouquet that mauricio has bought for me, and we have been consistently delighted with the products. I have glowingly recommended the service to friends, family and coworkers. I sincerely regret doing so, as I would hate to think that anyone else may receive the same kind of treatment that my boyfriend did. Needless to say, they not only lost us as customers, but I will now tell every single person I associate with about our experience, and that my boyfriends integrity was questioned so he could be accused of trying to steal from the store and was treated appallingly.

horrible service

Ae in columbia, maryland never delivered arrangement and did not tell me delivery was not made. Had delivery set for 9/11 ea called and said they couldn't do - that was fine w/me go ahead and deliver 9/12. On tuesday when I found out never delivered, they said they tried sat 9/12 and sun 9/13 and left door announcements. Recipient said they did not - was home all day, no delivery attempt. No attempt and no notice. I assumed delivery was made... No communication 9/14 or 9/15. Website says "successful delivery" it was a lie. Never delivered. Called again to make sure I am not charged (Not cheap btw). This company in columbia maryland sucks. They don't even care when called out. Never appologized. Horrible service horrible company. Will never attempt to use again.

poor service - unauthorized charges

I do NOT reccomend this store. I have ordered twice from them and both times there was a problem. The management is unwilling to address any issues. My first order was missing items. Not a big deal as it was only a balloon at the cost of $3.50. I contacted the store throught the website. No one bothered to even respond. I guess they were really heart up for my extra three dollars. The second order involved an erroneous charge to my credit card for over $300. The emplyee said only the manager was authorized to credit the charge. Several calls to the store and the manager was never avaialble. Come to find out that she was out for an extended period of time with no projected date of return. I was told there was nothing anyone else could do about the charge. Additionally, the people I did get to speak to were rude.

poor quality fruit!

Buyer beware!!! I received a fruit arrangement and the majority of the fruit was not ripe. The honeydew and cantelope were visibly not ripe. When you tried to eat them, they were as hard as a rock. The cutout pineapple flowers were very pretty but were brown around the edges. The only fruit that we were able to eat were the strawberries and the grapes. Needless to say, it was a very expensive arrangements for two spears of grapes and six strawberries.

I received the arrangement on a sunday and I had a very busy few days at work. On friday I called the local franchise that made and delivered it to me. I had to call the store 2x before the owner finally called me back.In a nutshell he told me that, "he owns his own business and he makes time to take care of his problems, because I didn't call earlier, he would do nothing for me. " I couldn't believe how obnoxious and rude he was to me. I reminded him that I was a repeat customer and I feel that he should do something for me. He restated no and that was that!!

The owners name is michael and I would stay far far away from this franchise. He does not appreciate his customers and he does not stand behind his product!!

Buyer beware!!!

    I am NOT scammed May 16, 2008

    I'm sorry to hear the one in New York is no good. We have two in Huntsville, Alabama and they are great! I have gotten this for many occasions from funeral dinners to wedding receptions and even once for a church dinner and all of them were wonderful. You should report the owner to the company because this will give them a black eye!

    I have been using Edible Arrangement (all different locations) since 2004, and I would NEVER send any other gifts BUT an Edible Arrangement! I ABSOLOUTELY LOVE THEM! Yes, mistakes do happen from time to time, but Edible Arrangements always make up fro them & then some! Keep up the YUMMY work & GREAT customer service!

    I agree with Elise!! Every business makes mistakes from time to time, the important thing is how the business handles it. I have gotten items from Edible Arrangements several times. 99% of the time, everything is perfect, but if there is an issue they do fix it for you. I have dealt with mostly the Orange County NY locations and they have been nothing but great. If the stores in other locations are bad, then it is because the owner or manager doesn't care enough. You can't generalize all stores because of bad experiences with the one near you.
