Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: My husband in December brought a lamp to the Light Centering to be fixed. At the time he picked up the lamp, he saw two lamp shades that he thought I would like but noticed their return policy that all items could only be returned for store credit only so he was hesitant to purchase them due to if it wasn't something I liked he wouldn't be able to get a refund. The salesman made him a deal he could buy them to take home and show me and if I didn't like them and he brought them back within 7 days he would get a full refund. He purchased them for $155.71. When he went to return them because I did not like them, they went back on their deal and would not refund the money. We had another lamp that also needed to be fixed but were going to bring it at a later time. He was basically forced by the manager that if we got the other lamp fixed he would take off the difference and refund that back. I feel this is unfair business practices and we pretty much had to have the other lamp fixed in order to get part of our money back.They refunded us $86. Thank you. ****** *****
Desired Settlement: See above
In response to the complaint we received on 3/12/2014.
My name is **** **** and I am the General Manager at Restoration Lighting Gallery. The ownership and management at Connecticut Lighting Centers & Restoration Lighting Gallery take customer service very seriously. Each customer is made aware of our lamp shade exchange policy during the selection process and it is also printed on the customers receipt and reiterated by the salesperson to the customer at the conclusion of the transaction.
Upon completion of the first repair of (1) lamp, (2) lamp shades were purchased for (2) lamps that the customer had and it was said by the customer that a second lamp would be brought in for repair.
When the second lamp was brought in on 1/25/2014, for repair, the lamp shades were also brought back. After reviewing our policy on lamp shade exchanges with the customer, we issued a full merchandise credit with the understanding that the new repair would be paid for with the merchandise credit and the full balance of that credit would be refunded. We made that refund on 2/8/2014
We are wondering where we fell down in helping this customer; our store policy is “seven (7) day exchange or merchandise credit”, we broke our policy and took back the lamp shades as well as refunded the customer’s money. We did retain a portion of the refundable amount ($30.26) to pay for a repair the customer brought in to have done.
I am attaching the copies of all the receipts & correspondence that are associated with this complaint. All included attachments were sent to the customer via email & USPS.
If there are any questions or I can be of any assistance to you please contact me directly.
BBB's Final Determination: After reviewing the position of all parties, BBB determined that the business made a reasonable effort to address the complaint. However the consumer remains dissatisfied.
