DO NOT BUY FROM SLUMBERLAND BEFORE READING! I have explained the details of my experience in the paragraph below but for the benefit of those who do not completely read reviews I wanted to start with bringing your attention to customer rating discrepancies I found Slumberlands website. Like most, prior to making purchases I check review ratings. The star rating on Slumberlands website for the Wake sectional I was planning to purchase had a 4.3 star rating with 4 reviews noted. Doing the math 4 reviews/4.3 stars I did not take the time to open the review summary page. After Slumberland did not delivery my furniture timely or have it available for store pick-up as promised, I began shopping for other furniture. While comparing a sectional from Macy's to the one I purchased from Slumberland I clicked on the 4.3 star rating associated with the Wake sectional to read the reviews. To my surprise the rating was actually 2.3 stars NOT 4.3 and there were 18 reviews not 4. I discovered more discrepancies on the Pros and Cons list which appeared before the reviews. This list contained a list of 5 each pros and cons, ea item had 1 review with the exception of comfort, it had 2 positive reviews noted. Upon reading the customer reviews I discovered 9/18 customers gave the sectional 1 stars review and 4/18 gave a 2 star review. Customer complaints included the sectional sagging, pilled and fraying fabric, and most shocking the couch being constructed from cardboard. Customers also complained that Slumberland refused to acknowledge the fabric is faulty and that other customers were having issues.
The short and skinny of my experience. When I purchased the sectional I was told the wait could be 2-4 weeks, it was dependent on when Slumberland received it from the Manufacturer. Once received it would be delivered the following Thurs, Fri, or Sat. Two weeks after purchasing the sectional I received a call from Justin, Slumberlands sales representative wanting to schedule delivery as my furniture had been received from the manufacturer. However, the delivery dates he offered were 2.5 weeks away which conflicted with his assurances and promise at the time of purchase I would not have any problems with delivery and bragged Slumberland owned it own professionally trained delivery team. What he failed to tell me was that I would have to wait have to wait for the furniture to arrive from the Manufacturer and an additional 2.5 weeks for delivery. My son and I went in person to the store and spoke with the Manager. He stated it was unusual for their deliveries to be backlogged and offered to refund the $100 delivery fee and the opportunity to pick up the furniture from the store that coming Friday. We explained we had not had to pay for delivery but the manager still refunded the $100. We accepted. Friday afternoon my son and I both took off work early, rented a Uhaul and drove to the store. I went to the back counter and told them I was there to pick up my furniture. The greeting I received was, "did you call before coming?" Confused, I responded no. The sales clerk stated, "we tell everyone to call ... " She looked up my order and said she could see the refund but stated the Manager had not followed through and the furniture had not been delivered to the store as promised and there was nothing she could do. The store manager was on vacation until the following Wednesday and the earliest we could pu the furniture was the following Tues, we declined as my son was not available to help. We left the store fully expecting to hear from the store manager when he returned from vacation. We did not. After finding the website discrepancies and reading the reviews I ordered the sectional from Macy's and received it within 4 days. I cancelled my order in person and was given a receipt showing a refund of the purchase price less $100 (already refunded) 5 days ago, I am still waiting for the refund to post to my account. Slumberland made no attempt to refund or make right the $50+ spent on renting the Uhaul.
