I am an avid internet shopper & having my groceries delivered directly to me was very appealing. I gave the first salesman over 2 hours of my time. The salesman touted all of their meat products as prime grade, no hormones, etc. He claimed that if I was unhappy with anything that they would replace it with something else. HA! This marathon sales pitch took so long that it got to the point where I signed just to end the agony!
It's interesting that, no matter how many times I asked, no one could give me a per pound price. Why do they hide this? Because if they told people, they'd be out of business tomorrow.
The food was delivered... some was good, some just OK & some absolutely horrible.
So, I was dumb enough to reorder. Did I mention that I really like home delivery?
Another salesman came out. We told him that, while some of the meat was very good, some we really didn't like at all. No arrangement was made to make good on the claim of 100% guaranteed. Even though the delivery guy picked up the remainder of the food we didn't like, no effort was ever made to give us this guarantee... and we asked several times.
To add insult to injury, they sold us a cookware set "for free" with our 2nd order. Turns out this cookware set cost us a whopping $1750 & at 19% interest! Let me tell you, this is not $1750 cookware in value. Only in cost. They claim that discounts they give you for buying items such as this pay for themselves. Not likely, since they inflate the costs of the groceries & meat so high, the cookware is just icing on their cake.
And, sadly, this horribly expensive set of cookware IS NOT guaranteed. I just gave these people nearly $2000 just for darkening my doorstep. I have semi-OK pots & pans. I wouldn't expect that they're worth any more than about $350. And it's frustrating that there's not a d**n thing I can do about it.
They tried to sell us a 3rd order. The salesman was rude & insulting. Needless to say, I warn others to learn from my mistakes... STAY AWAY!
