Jan 17 2012 had a salesmen come to my home, we entered into a contract for laminate flooring and was assured by him and also a document we signed, that we could cancel within 3 days and receive our deposit back.On Jan18, 2012 I called to cancel, also followed instructions on cancel document to submit in writing of cancel and would receive my deposit within 10 days of receipt.Called 30days later and was told a check was on the way from the San Fran office, it would take 10-14 buisness days.March 14 called and was told a check was issues Feb 29 2012
and give it another day or so, even gave me a check #. It is now March29 2012 I still have received NOTHING.I wish I would have read all the complaints online Before I had them come to my home.Any suggestions on how I can get my deposit back.
Thank You

    Installer showed up late with a carpet sample that was not of the quality my wife and I had chosen. We decided to cancel and wait because it was going to cost us at least a few thousand more for a different type of carpet. We were told by multiple service reps that because we didn't cancel within the 3 days, something the sales rep failed to mention, that we would not be getting out 400 dollar deposit back. Who cancels within 3 days? We waited 2 weeks for the install and were presented with an inferior product. Of course there wouldn't be any issues within 3 days. This has to be the shadiest and most despicable business practice I have ever experienced. During a pandemic no less, when money is very hard to come by for most people. Who thinks they are going to get ripped off by a carpet contract? Next time I'll definitely read the fine print and I hope everyone stays far away from Empire today.

    Empire Today did the exact same thing to me. The salesman came to my home and showed my examples, I gave him a $200 deposit. The next I decided to go with another vendor and called to cancel order and receive my deposit back. This was on june 20th, 2018. The customer service rep, said it would take 7-10 business days in which I would receive my refund. The 10th day being july 5th, he said if the money wasnt back in my acvount that I should call back. On july 5th I checked my account and sure enough the money wasnt there, so I called empire customer support again, the agent indicated that initial request I made on june 20th hadnt been submitted and now it would take another 7-10 business days. I took a deep breath, and calmley informed the rep that I would file a complaint with the michigan attorney general consumer affairs department, the BBB and both wdiv and wxyz consumer affairs department. I will never do business with empre today. I told all of my neighbors about my experience and will tell my city council as well. Shame on empire. Let the potential buyer beware and look elsewhere for carpeting.
