Additional Notes

Complaint: When placing my order for patio furniture, I realized the employee had not written the items I requested. I was able to correct this error. I had explained that I wanted the furniture for my elderly parents who would stay with me over the Holidays (Thanksgiving thru New Year's). I was told my furniture would arrive on 11/12/14. I phoned on 11/6/14 to check on the delivery status. When my call was returned that day, I was told that the furniture had never been ordered so it would arrive before Christmas. I explained my frustration and expressed that would not do me much good. I wanted to know how I would be compensated and the employee told me she would call back. I did not hear back from the company so I called again on 11/8/14 and asked to speak with a manager. I had to call back so that I could be connected to a voicemail. I left the message of how upset I was and asked that my call be returned. I still had not heard back from the company on 11/10/12, so I called again - and got the run around. Eventually the sale clerk called me later on 11/10/14 and told me that the furniture I had ordered is manufactured only once a quarter, so it would not be ready until after Christmas. She told me she could get me a different color sooner. At that point I asked for a full refund and was told they would refund my money 100%. I went to the store on 11/11/14 and processed a transaction for a full refund ($2,500.00). It is now 12/12/14 and I have not seen where my debit card has been refunded. I looked at the sales receipt and it stated "on line" transaction. The refund receipt shows "off line" transaction. I called the company on 12/12/14 and asked how soon I would see the refund. I was told that they had no control over the transaction, that my bank was responsible. I called the bank and was told the merchant is responsible and probably hasn't processed the transaction. This service is beyond UNACCEPTABLE! To think that I had so many issues, left a voicemail w/ the owner of the company & never heard back.

Desired Settlement: The company needs to refund my account ASAP.

BBB Response:

The merchant has refunded my full amount as requested.
