Complaint: I purchased a recliner from home cinema center on 2/9/2015 3/3/2015 I observed several things wrong with it you can not sit in it in a normal way it automaticaly goes all the way back as if it has been reclined,the reclining lever sticks I worked with it a few times until it worked wich resulted in me falling back several times with the chair when it works and you are reclined it takes any minimal movement to fall back and end up on the floor again I contacted them several times after wich I was given a rediculous response they told me my problem is that at 6 foot tall i am to tall for the recliner wich was made to accomodate at most people maybe 5'8 at no time was I made aware there is a hight limit wich does not explain the other issues with the chair Icontinued to try to resolve the issue with them and was told they would not be doing anything for me Since they would not help me and stopped answering my emails I contacted the manufacturer ******* ********* I was told they have a very close relationship with HCC and because of this I have to go through HCC and they have to deal with my issues and initiate any warranty related issues Icontacted HCC again with this information and emailed them several more times with no answer Therefore I had to contact ******* ********* to let them know HCC Would not answer me a representative of j. furniture emailed home cinema center several times telling them to please address my problems and cc'd the email to me so I could see what she sent them HCC continued to ignore me so now four months with no resolution or help I let ** ********* know HCC is still ignoring me so Iwould be contacting the BBB after this I finally heard from HCC they sent an email telling me I have to pay for the recliner to be shipped back to them and have 9 days for them to recive tracking information shipping costs as much as chair I asked if I would be reimbused two days later still being ignored called HCC wont talk to me they said email them

Desired Settlement: I would like a refund and them to pay for the chair to be shipped back to them

Business Response: Customer received chair several months ago.  Customer state an issue back and provide photos of the box.  We instructed customer on several occasions to provide detailed photos of actual product, description and/or video.  This was requested 1st and 2nd week in March.  They refused to provide any detail.  2 weeks ago they requested return.  Customer does not have issue with chair, they simply do not like it.  While this is well outside of our return window, we have instructed customer to return chair (at their expense) to us for refund.  They have refused to do ship chair. This claim has been closed.


Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the offer and/or response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint.  For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.

[Provide details of why you are not satisfied with this resolution.]


***** *******

I have tried for months to resolve this issue with the recliner I purshased, both home cinema center and ******* ********* have been told I like the recliner and only ask for one that works. Now they respond by claiming I was not coaporating and simply dont like the recliner. This is rediculos I just want my money back now and I am not willing to spend almost as much as the recliner cost to send it back at my loss. They are responsible for the quality of their products and ******* ********* should not have had to force them to respond to me.
