Business Response:

Dear J. ***** ******,


                My name is Becky and I am the Assistant Manager at Grizzly’s Gifts in Anchorage, Alaska.  I have just been made aware that Grizzly’s Gifts did not respond to the complaint that you made with the Better Business Bureau in October of 2013 regarding a shipping error.

                On behalf of Grizzly’s Gifts, I would like to apologize for not resolving the shipping issue in a timely manner.  Grizzly’s prides itself on having excellent customer service and when an issue slips through the cracks it is very regretful. 

                Please accept this letter as our formal apology and let us know if there is anything we can do to excuse the tardiness of this apology and restore your faith in Grizzly’s Gifts.  I hope you come visit our store again the next time you are in the Anchorage area. 



Becky P.

Consumer Response:

Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:


While I was able to finally get my money returned for the syrup that was damaged, I would regard the issue as being resolved in an unsatisfactory manner.  The person(s) involved in the shipping did not want to take any responsibility for contacting the USPS to make the claim and tried to make the case that it was entirely up to me to get the claim resolved with the Post Office.  This, even though I had nothing to do with the actual packaging or submission to the Post Office.  Until the BBB can be assured that Grizzly management has changed it's policy, I would leave this as an open issue.
