Additional Notes

Complaint: I recently needed to replace a knob from kitchen cabinet, a 1&1/4 inch Emtek glass knob. I went to Google, typed Emtek glass knob,the website for "Cool Knobs and Pulls" came up as having Emtek knobs. Their site came up as having the knob, otherwise I would have never gone through them as the other 40 knobs in my kitchen are Emtek 1& 1/4 glass knobs.Placed the order for their 1&1/4 inch glass knobs, what I thought to be Emtek what I received was something different. A glass knob,not the ones that I wanted,and they didn't measure 1&1/4", smaller than what I have and wanted. Called the company, told them the situation because they charge a restocking fee. I was told that, not only will I encur the restocking fee, it will be 25% as it has been more than 30 days. One of the women I spoke with told me that they measure their knobs from longest point to longest point however, when I ordered them from a hardware store,their 1&1/4" was the same size as the ones that I already have. I spoke with the manager,she admonished me for waiting and told me it was my my mistake.

Desired Settlement: I would like a refund and no restocking fee. I am surprised this company is in business if this is how they operate.

Business Response: In reply to this complaint I feel that it is not at all our responsibility to waive this customers restocking or shipping. This is our company policy and I will paste all information below. This absolutely was not our fault and the customer had plenty of time to return this to be charged only the 15% fee vs the 25%. I think she may have failed to read the policy. We stand by our decision and all our customers have to abide by this policy. If we had advertised as Emtek it would be one thing but we absolutely did not. We can't control what google pulls up. I am pasting all data below indicating our policy. Return Policy: This is very clear what our return policy is and we feel that if it was something she couldn’t use then 30 days was ample time to return it for credit. Customers may return items up to 60 days after purchase for credit. You will be credited the full amount minus the applicable restocking charges and exceptions listed below. Customers will not be credited for applicable shipping charges and customers are responsible for return shipping costs. Returned items must be in their original undamaged condition to qualify for credit. Items returned within 30 days of purchase will incur a 15% restocking fee.Items returned between 31 and 60 days of purchase will incur a 25% restocking fee.Items returned after 60 days will not be credited.   Below is the description that was on the customer order.  Nothing indicates Emtek at all. It was never questioned until now. The only thing that led her to our site was when she Googled Emtek Knob the description had knob in it therefore our site showed up as having knobs. We have not said we wouldn’t refund her but it will be according to the regulations of our company policy. Item to Purchase Item No. Price Ext.
