Additional Notes

Complaint: A product purchased was still under warranty and discontinued from the store. They were rude and unprofessional when responding when trying to order replacement parts since they would not replace under warrantee with weather related issues. The person informed us we were better to rip it on purpose then say it was weather related. The office contacted us and was rude and unhelpful, uncaring of returning business.

Desired Settlement: We would like a refund or credit to a new gazeebo with irreplaceable parts

Business Response:

We spoke to the customer and were able to come to an amicable resolution.  The damage the customer was referring to was weather related damages, which is not covered under the manufacturer warranty.  In the interest of good customer service we are giving the customer full credit of $1881.64 toward reselecting a new gazebo.  We will pick up the damaged gazebo when the new one is delivered.  

10/6/2015 Advertising/Sales Issues | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: I got an ad on ******** (which specifically noted that it was a sponsored ad) for 25% off everything in the store and they would not honor it in store.

Desired Settlement: I spent quite a bit of money on items that were not on sale 2 days before, but they would not honor their ad. They said there were exclusions. I have a photo from my iPhone of the advertisement. It very clearly says the ad is sponsored by Fortunoff and that it includes everything in store. No obvious exclusions. Not even an asterisk

Business Response: We asked the customer to send us a copy of the ******** ad, which they did.  There was a typo on the ad, it should have stated "select outdoor furniture sets".  Since this verbiage was omiitted from the ad, we honored the promotion and gave the cusotmer 25% off the purchase price of the outdoor cover. The refund was processed on 9/**/15.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me and the matter has been resolved.  They absolutely did the right thing and honored the ad.
