    I had a similar situation. I will not purchase anything from Leon's anymore and the driver’s attitudes was so bad too. I think they need good/professional customer service because when I called them they were keep on transferring the calls after waiting more than three weeks still I had to wait another 10hrs to get my stuffs because they made a mistake while they were packing it, Especially I don’t like “North York, Ontario Location” customer service. They need to hire good people who are there to acknowledge their fault or say at lease sorry.

    I purchased a mattress and mattress cover from Leon's in South Edmonton on Jan 7th, and scheduled delivery for Jan 14th. I took the 14th off work to be at home for the delivery, and all they delivered was the cover, no mattress. So I called to see what the deal was and I was told that it wouldn't be in stock until the 20th. I asked why they set up the delivery if the mattress wasn't in stock and she said the salesperson should have known this. So I rescheduled the delivery for Jan 26th (today). No calls, no delivery. So I called again and this time I'm told that there was no delivery scheduled and the mattress still is NOT IN STOCK!!!, it's expected by "the end of the month". I said "you know what? This is pathetic, I ordered this mattress 3 weeks ago, and I was told I would have it 2 weeks ago. I'm tired of this, I just want my money back. So they refunded my money and I'm back where I started, shopping for a mattress. Thank you so much Leon's for your awesome service, expert salespeople and fast effective delivery service. Not!! -sincerely A.W.

flimsy and moldy furniture

Bought a dining set and bedroom set at Leons
1st dining set table came damaged and 3 out 6 chairs are not even and screws were missing...
2nd bedroom set - opened the bedframe first and assembled but middle frame is si flimsy that the metal where you insert the legs are coming off and the wood is not sturdy at all so we called Leons and told them the problem and the CS was totally unprofessional and rude so I told her to pick up the bedroom set I don't want it. Ok so she said she will send a truck to come pick it up...then we thought let's open the rest probably they are damaged too...and guess what we found? Damaged night table and moldy boxes from the dresser and the furniture is moldy as well. Now we are thinking to sue them for all these and not sure what to do...we definitely don't want any furniture from them!!

    OMG! Today we had wooden daybeds delivered from Leons. My husband cut the box open and when he opened the flap it was thick with MOLD!!! We are unbelievably upset, obviously we dispersed mold within our home, we also breathed it in as well. My side of the family has severe allergies to mold. I am very concerned. I don't know what we should do. What are rights? When the delivery men came back to take them back to the store. They were told that we had a mold problem in our home and that they didn't fit. The delivery men were led to believe that the mold was in our home and that the furniture was fine, "it just didn't fit". They too were concerned for their health after handling them. We took pictures, the mold is scary. How do I rectify the situation? How do I alleviate my concerns for our family's health now that we have been exposed to the mold.

appliances

We have been loyal Leons customers about 20 years. In October 2007, we purchased six new appliances for our new home, and six new appliances for our son. We also purchased Platinum Protection for all.

We have never had a problem with new appliances before. However, four of our six Leons appliances have been defective.

They finally replaced our microwave.

Our dishwasher has to be tipped back at a ridiculous angle so that it will not leak. This was the "leveling" as performed during a service call. The front panel was replaced because it developed a large stain, where the heat vents out. Our water heater is set, one notch above the vacation setting so hot water was not causing the problem. The stain has reappeared on the new panel. We have not pursued this issue.

The front panel of our $749 clothes dryer was replaced because one day the dryer decided that it would produce no heat, and it would not shut off, unless the door were left open.

The real problem is with our $1049 washing machine. I have called Platinum Protection at least nine times (I wasn't keeping track at the start) starting November 17. A repair man has repeatedly "fixed" the door, which will not latch unless you lift it. By the time we get to the basement to check, the repair man has left. I called Platinum Protection today to ask why the manager had not called me back on April 18 as I was promised. I was abruptly told that, when I did not receive the callback, I should have called again. I asked to speak to a manager and was once again informed that the manager is at lunch.
I then called the Richmond Hill store where I had bought the appliances. I was treated very politely, as always at the stores, and was informed, for the first time ever, that back in March, they were considering replacing my washing machine. I was also told that possibly the reason for the confusion was that they had an old cell phone number on record. Although possible, this is highly improbable, as I have contacted the store and Platinum Protection repeatedly and left my number on several occasions. I am waiting for a call backfrom the store this afternoon, as promised.

Is this a typical level of customer service with Leons Platinum Protection? Is it possible that Leons purchases factory seconds and sells them to customers without informing them?

We have become very disillusioned and in future will shop elsewhere.

    I understood exactly what johhndoe meant in his letter. You see, I too WAS a Leons customer. Attitude on the part of many, not all, Leons employees is the reason we will no longer shop Leons.

defective furniture

I have purhased a set of 2 recliner leather sofa's from leons in Brampton, Ontario. Hoping that i will be getting some quality material from such a big and reputed company, to my surprise when my delivery came both the peices that i receicved was defective. one had differnet shade on the arm rest which was obvious and i noticed at the time of delivery and luckily complaied to the delivery guy to be noted on the delivery sheet. It was replaced with the new one later. Another sofa had some stiching missing on the seat which i noticed a week after the sofa was deliverd to my place which was too late for leons to give me replacement sofa in good condition. |when i complained they sent a technicial to fix the seam on my sofa which i agreed as thinking they know what they are doing and hopefully it will be fixed for good. however after few days of use the stitching that was fixed gave up again as its right on the edge of the seat where you sit. We called leons again and they promised to look into this. few days later same technicial showed up onm y door and after he finished his inspection asked him what's the solution and he said its same as before it will stictch this again. when i stated that when we sit on this seat it will fail again and he laughed and said then don't sit on it. I asked them to give me better solution since this came as it is from leons they should be replacing this piece, however i was told by the stores customer service manager that they have to fix this few more times and if it keeps on loosing the stitching only then they will repalce the product. i have asked them to give me some assurance that it will not happen and both technician and service manager advised that they can assure anythingon the repairs. it was delivered to my iin middle of dec and in 2 months i have had all sorts of issues with their sofas. Too date i am still waiting to hear from the store. called last week and was advised they are waiting for report from technician. With this kind of service i will suggest everyone who is reading this to please AVOID LEONS!!! they will give you all assurances when you are buying the product however when its time to deliver the promise you are out of luck. everytime i look at my family room it reminds me of poor service, poor product.

terrible policies and servie

I have spent many thousands of dollars buying merchandise from Leon's and have never been so disgusted...

2 bills for same item with 2 different dates

I purchased 2 tvs on Feb 1, 2010. I purchased on the plan 12month no down payments. However, when I went to pay I was informed by the bank that I was a month late. I was unsure what they were talking about. I had the computer printed bill from Leon's which the date indicated 01/02/10. The banks bill read 04/01/10. Which means Jan. 4, 2010.

I approached Leon's to questions them and they said that theres was the same as the bank, they just print it out differently.
Then you will never belive this, there was also a small hand writen stub attached. The cashier pointed it out. It was writen the same way as the bank.

So that was too much, first a lie, then two billing DATES. I did purchased the items in Feb, 2010 as it was a valentines gifts.
So I got charged the interest rate of $30.00 becasue they sent the hand writen bill into the bank.

So I was billed with 2 different dates. This is wrong. Bad business. People need to watch the bills. They are giving you 2 bills and sending in a hand writen bill that is a month prior to the date of your actual purchase. Double billing? who knows what is up with that.

The cashier was very shamed faced and did not know what to say. But pay the bill!!!

defective product not covered by warranty

Leon's Furniture 1 year + 1 week after buying. I was told this is not covered by Leon's 1 year warranty. Buyer Beware on Warranty Details and defective products.

    It looks like a broken piece of wood, that may not be a manufacturers defect. Also you should of brought it back within the 1 year warranty...I can't agree with you on this one.

gifts with purchase

Beware of those gift certificiates with purchase!!! I bought a freezer as part of a large purchase in october 2010 and there was supposed to be a gift certificate for a major retailer included in the purchase - kind of a bonus, you know? Well, the cashier didn't know, even when I showed her the ad, and she said to call back in a couple of weeks if it didn't arrive in the mail... Called, then given wrong number (Took me about 35 minutes of calls to find that out) called back. No one knew. Given another number. Called that and wrong number again. Called back. No one knows. Given another number to call - tomorrow - becasue they're closed now, and by the way, you might need this info since you don't have it, and you have to apply on line for the gift, don't know the site, but call and she will probably know. Don't know how long it will take or even if it still can be done so long after the purchase??? What?? I thought I was going to get free groceries, not jumping through hoop lessons... Didn't it say free gift with purchase - I purchased now give me my gift.

delivery time

I recently purchased a couch from Leon's and was quoted 4-6 weeks delivery or the option to pick up the piece myself from Burlington immediately. They are now telling me, 6 weeks later, that the item is on back order which seems impossible considering it was available for pick at the time of purchase. I have not been contacted once with an update and now if I cancel will have to wait another 4-6 weeks for a new couch plus the added time of finding a new one. I have been sitting on the floor for far too long now and would never, ever shop at Leon's again for anything. The sad part is I was warned about them, but figured it was just a one-off incident. I was wrong and now I warn you too.

price

We purchased 4 peices of furniture from their store only to have it go on sale a week later. We were told we could get the 15% refund. When we tried to get the refund, they told us sorry, you have to come in while the sale is on (3 Day Sale) and it was over on the Sunday and I called on the Monday, so sorry about my luck. My issue is that no-one told me I had to come in during the 3 day sale or I would have, even though I was working.

    I agree, but it was already bought and paid for 4 days before the sale. It's not like I have not purchased it yet. I bought it, then it went on sale.

6 weeks delivery never met even after 4.5 months

When you buy something at Leon's Calgary, the delivery date indicated in the invoice is a BIG BIG BIG BIG lie. They are not really really committed with the delivery date. I bought a furniture to be delivered within 6 weeks. Came 6 weeks they called me up, telling I should wait for another 2 weeks. I waited for that 2 weeks but no delivery was made. Thereafter, I had been calling them each week for 3 months. They could not even give even the approximate date of delivery - blaming it all to their supplier. They could not tell me when, even the approximate date of delivery, say, ok Mr. your purchase will be delivered after 3 months and please wait for it. But no, according to them, they didn'nt know when the item will be delivered, that was of course, after the fact that I had already paid for my purchase. Too much for 5 months to wait for the delivery, finally, I cancelled my order. Another thing, the customer service personnel who attended my order cancellation was very rude. With all my tolerance for the delay, she was not even apologetic, she had more guts trying to defend and defend leon's side. Anyway, my experience with Leon's gave me a lesson that I, MY FAMILY, FRIENDS AND FRIENDS OF MY FRIENDS WILL NEVER BUY AGAIN AT LEON's CALGARY.

    I am adding my complaints about Leon's furniture. Went in late Sept 2013 to purchase furniture because my husband have their credit card. We purchased $2600.00 worth of furniture, they promised that as an incentive I would receive a free mirror with my delivery. Furniture was delivered, wrong date by the way, and no mirror. Delivery person said it was on back order. This is Dec 5, 2013 and I had to threaten to go public in order to get this incentive mirror. When I called, and I called several time, their customer service person informed me that I was not the only person waiting and that she is not able to tell me when mirror would be available. I asked for a manager, threatened to go public with this FALSE ADVERTISEMENT then she miracloulsy found a mirror in the back, still in box, wrapped ready to go. I WILL NEVER, EVER SHOP AT LEON'S AGAIN, they are a disgrace.

    Bought 60" LED and Sound Bar. T.V. is fine, but sound bar will not power up anymore. 3 weeks into buying it. Got the run around from local store (Kingston, ON) she couldn't get me off the phone fast enough only to give me an email address for Sharp! After 2.5 hours on the phone and convincing rep that YES it is a Sound Bar, not a Blue Ray Player, she wanted me to turn it on. I guess she missed the part when I told her ...it won't power up either from the unit itself or the remote. I take it all to the store at 7:30pm only to find incompetence in real life. Said they'd get back to me by 9:00pm. It is now 9:45am next day and nothing from Leon's in Kingston! Fridges, Stove, Washer, Dryer, Couches, Love Seats, Beds have all been purchased at this location. We're talking upwards of $10, 000.00-$15, 000.00. Guess what...it will be a cold dark day before I buy another thing from there. Did I mention it's in Kingston! Brutal service, incompetence to the highest degree, unprofessional and just down right disrespectful of people in general. If you want you children to see how not to treat people..take them to Leon's in Kingston. It's worth the price of admission..What a JOKE

no return exchange

I bought a bed that ended up being quite high off the ground because of the combination of mattress and bed frame height. I understood I couldn't return the mattress (even though not used) but I just wanted to exchange the metal bed frame for a low profile. The sales person did not tell me there were different heights for frames and my regular 14" bed skirt is to short. I spoke to three different people and was told to wait three days to talk to their "specialist" only hear I couldn't exchange it. I was first told to just go buy a custom bedskirt, then told I might find one at Walmart! Come on! they can't exchange a metal, , brand new bed frame, that could be resold to keep me happy?! I will never shop there again and will tell anyone that will listen to not shop there as well!

    We bought a new couch and loveseat from Leon's. Unfortunately, they are just too large for the room. We called the store less than an hour after delivery wanting to return the furniture, and exchange it for something smaller. No deal ! I was told that we should have brought a tape measure and had the room measurements as well. I am very disappointed with them. My sister in law also bought the same as well as kitchen appliances. She is moving in May and was so disgusted with them, cancelled her order. No more shopping at Leon's for us !
