Additional Notes

Complaint: I purchased the Kirby vacuum in October. It's never worked. I contacted Kirby repeatedly and they won't take their product back.

Desired Settlement: Stop collection of payment and take your product back. It's been used twice for 5 minutes and has never worked.

Business Response: To respond to this complaint we have called ****** ****** numerous times. I can get the times. She made a formal complaint with the Kirby co on 12/22/14. Her buffer attachment had been mailed to her on 12/18/14. The number that ****** supplied for this complaint is the same number we called twice a day on 12/23, 12/26 and 12/29. Since her voicemail was not set up we could not leave a message. After speaking with ******** in the office she has just informed me that ****** ****** has called twice in the last 2 weeks during regular business hours. When ******** answers the phone she hangs up. Today on 1/29 ****** left a message at our office.  When ******** called this morning the voicemail was set up so she left a message for ******. We have not heard back from her today. This transaction is not going to be cancelled. We are more than willing to help her with the machine as we have already been to her house once before. Since she doesn't respond to our missed calls, please forward this to her and have her return ********'s call so we can help her.  Just invade she doesn't have the number it is, ************. We are in the office mon-fri 8:30-3.
