Complaint Review: Rec Warehouse
Rec Warehouse11969 Jefferson Ave Newport News, Virginia U.S.A.
Rec Warehouse They took my money, when the item did not come in told me it was backordered, after 5 weeks are still making excuses, never call, I have to call them Newport News Virginia
*UPDATE Employee: I UNDERSTAND AS AN EMPLOYEE.....
When they did figure it out they got me the new base but it was obvious I was bothering them. The bar was to be in the next Friday(oct 12) and I was to pick it up. The sales person never called as he said he would on that Friday to let me know for sure it was there. I called him on Monday. He did not apologize for not calling just told me it would be the next Friday and he would call me on that Friday and let me know it came in.
Friday (oct 19) came and no call. I called again on Monday and was told it was in the warehouse but there was no room on the truck as items that customers who had bought before me had filled the truck and mine would be here next Friday. Again no apology and the salesman was very short. Friday (oct 26) came and went again. I stopped by the store on Monday and talked to the sales person. I told him customer service should be better and he agreed but never apologized and only made excuses.
I asked how much refund I could get if I just did not get the bar. He checked with his manager and told me $1100. I understand I did buy it in a package deal but the bar is over $4000 if you buy it alone so I paid at least $2000 or more for it in the package. I said no and he offered me the display at a $100 refund. I said no again. He said my new bar would be in on Friday (nov 2) and he would call me and let me know what time I could pick it up. Guess what - no call. I call the store on Nov 3 (Saturday) and ask to speak to a manager.
I no longer wanted to deal with the sales person who had lied to me several times by now. The lady I spoke with told me he was with a customer and would call me shortly. She took my number and I took her name. Guess what - no call. It is now Nov 4, 2007, 6 weeks from when we bought our package and we have never received one phone call from Rec Warehouse! It is like they took the money and now could care less. After reading other complaints about Rec Warehouse overall (not just the Newport News Store) I would never advise anyone to shop there.
