Reason for Rating
BBB rating is based on 16 factors. Get the details about the factors considered.
This business has no rating because it is out of business.
Consumer complaints concern consumers placing an order online and either their shipment is being severely delayed or their shipment is arriving with the wrong or damaged product. Consumers who cancel their orders, or who attempt to contact the company for an exchange or refund for the damaged/incorrect product, are unable to have the matter corrected in a reasonable timeframe.
According to consumers, the company representatives tell the consumers that they should hear from someone within 24 hours but the consumers do not hear from anyone and it takes repeated contact from the consumer in order to attempt to have the matter resolved.
On May 1, 2013 BBB was notified that Zoo Stores ceased operations on April 22, 2013. The company has filed for an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors. Information provided by the company can be found at https://orderstatus.mercantila.com/
