Additional Notes

Complaint: An excessively opaque fulfillment procedure that processes payment immediately but does not ship your order. It has been over the 10 business days stated on their shipping policies page with no notification from customer support as to the status of my order. There is now a website banner saying orders will not ship for holiday which is bogus because my order was placed before any such notification was posted, in addition to never being contacted to verify such.

Desired Settlement: I would like these to ship and be received by the promised date as they were ordered for holiday gifts, happen to domestically produced and coming from the East Coast at that. These are reasons I want the product and if they cannot deliver as promised, then let this be a scar on their business record.

Business Response: Hello,Mr. **********'s order was shipped December 9th from **** *****, VT.  It arrived in ****** , NH December 10th at 1:33 p.m.  It arrived in *******, GA, *****, on December 12th at 11:48 p.m. and departed *******, GA at 11:00 p.m.  Sorting was completed at 9:39 a.m. in *******, GA, ***** and the parcel was delivered December 13th at 4:01 p.m. 30308  The posting on the website regarding holiday delivery is for new orders place on Sunday, December 14 and later and does not include prior orders.  We apologize for the confusion.  Mr. ********** makes a valid point about not receiving further communication about the shipment of his order.  This is something we plan to remedy in 2015.Respectfully,***** ******Vice-President

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau: I have reviewed the response submitted by the business and have determined that the response does satisfy my issues and/or concerns in reference to complaint #********. I understand that by choosing to accept the business response that my complaint will be closed as resolved. To be reopened if remedy is not received early next week. Regards, **** **********

Additional Notes

Complaint: Hi, I got this from your fulfillment company foxy cart. Well I am not impressed. It gives the impression that my order was filled. However now it is Jan. 3rd, 2014 and my shirt has not arrived yet. If this was out of stock, I would think the company would notify me and tell me the order would be filled on such and such a date, but to this day I have not hear a word, seen an email or even a phone call. The bottom (below the copy of my order summary) is from my bank ** **** who shows the funds have been withdrawn from my account on Dec. 23rd, 2013. Still nothing! I sent an email to Vermont Flannel asking about my order to and still have not even received the courtesy of a reply saying my email was received and we will check and let you know what happened to your order. E-Commerce is not all that difficult and email has worked for at least the last 25 years, the phone system has been working for the past 100 years and the US Mail has been in service since 1775. You would think a company who wanted to stay in business would be able to use any of these communication tools to inform a customer of a problem with their order. So no I have little choice but to go to The Vermont Better Business Bureau and state my objection to your company and their lack of good business sense. I hope I will not have to file a claim against you for using interstate wire fraud for removing funds from my account without even attempting to send my order. Inserted below are a copy of the order confirmation and the very bottom is a note of when the funds were taken from my accounts. Yours truly,*** ********** From: Vermont Flannel Company [] On Behalf Of Vermont Flannel CompanySent: Thursday, December 19, 2013 10:02 AMTo: ***************@*********.netSubject: Vermont Flannel Company - Order #********* ReceiptThank-you for your order! Details below:

Desired Settlement: I would like this company to fill the order as promised and paid to do or refund my money after all you can't just take people's money and not expect them to complain for no product or service rendered.

Business Response: Hello, Mr. ********** was emailed on Friday, December 27th that his item was on back order and would not be available to ship until mid January.  He was given the choice of waiting for the item, choosing another plaid in stock or receive a refund. He did not respond to the email.  Mr. ********** did call our store in *********, VT on January 3rd.  At that point the shirt was available and shipped.  The tracking# is **********************.  He should except his package today or with in a couple of days depending on the weather. I hope this explanation validates that we did communicate with him.  I agree we should have followed up with a phone call or have sent another email.  Respectfully, ***** *****, Vice-President
