Additional Notes

Complaint: I recently placed an order via Ryan's website. I have three dogs, maintain a home in ******** was an active volunteer with a ******* lab rescue and heavily advocated this organization at the time, currently serve on the Board of a ***** animal rescue, and have been a regular customer of Ryan's for the past 6-7 years. One of my items (item # ******** 5" rawhide shoe) was not delivered. My invoice detail reflected this line item with a quantity of zero. I can't recall the exact quantity I ordered, but it's typically between 12 and 24. I called to inquire why the items were not included in my shipment. The woman who answered the phone at Ryan's informed me the reason was because the item was out of stock. However, at the time I placed the order, the website did not indicate the 5" rawhide shoes were out of stock and included whatever quantity I ordered into my total invoice amount of approximately $60. Further, I did not receive any notification from Ryan's, either via phone, email or on the invoice included with my shipment that the 5" rawhide shoes were ever out of stock. In fact, the Ryan's employee told me when this item is out of stock, a minimum order of $25 is required before it would be back ordered. She also said this is advertised to customers. When I inquired where this was advertised, she referenced a page in their catalog, which had no bearing on my experience since I placed an order via their website. I told the Ryan's employee I would be willing to purchase $25 worth of the 5" rawhide shoes but I felt Ryan's should waive the shipping and handling fees for these items, since I was never informed this item was out of stock until I placed the call to inquire about my missing items. The employee said she didn't think they could waive shipping but that I could leave a message with a manager. I opted to call back since I did not want to leave a voice message and expressed my frustration and dissatisfaction with this experience. Ryan's should not include 'Rely on Ryan's' print on their invoices or in advertising via their website, based on what I experienced.

Desired Settlement: I want the items I ordered on approximately 9.23.13 (5" rawhide shoes) shipped to my address, with all shipping and handling fees waived. I'll pay for a quantity up to $25 in product amount or will accept and pay for the original quantity ordered but refuse to pay for shipping and handling based on their lackluster customer service. If the management or owners of Ryan's Pet Supplies choose not to comply with my request, then I'd like for them to cancel the account I have on file and understand I will never do business with them again nor be an advocate of their organization.
