Real frustration and insanity was dealing with Customer ServiceDepartment.  Representatives barely speak English, when asked if I could speak with supervisor was (all in one day) told by  2 different reps that first, supers on vacation; second tht they were all on break.

Finally gave up and called the freight company that delivered the items.  They said, "No problem you don't need a Return Authorization.  We will p/u next day repackage at our warehouse and send back to The Emporium.  And they did just that!  However, I then began getting emails and phone calls regarding my "delinquent account."  I had made a first one-time payment and thought I had set up ACH payments.  Apparently, and luckily, these ACH payments did not set up and The Emporium was therefore unable to debit my account.  Upon repeated, and repeated calling discovered my order still had not been canceled; billing would not stop until it was canceled and "Customer Service" kept saying they had sent the cancellation request. 

I kept trying to speak with a Superviso and "Escalating" my issue.  Again, frustrated I googled The Emporium hoping to find a corporate # to call - none there.  But I did see the Ripoff Report and scanned complaints, etc. and discovered an email address for something called VNU Retail that was in an Emporium rebuttal.  I googled VNU Retail and low and behold actually phoned them and got it all taken care of in about 2 minutes or less with excellent customer service. 

Sooooooooooooo, call VNU Retail for problems with The Emporium.  If they can't fix it they will tell you who can!!!!!!
