I am beyond disappointed and frustrated with Sears sales and customer service. On Thursday, November 28, 2013 we purchased 1.) Kenmore GAS RANGE and 2.) Kenmore under cabinet RANGE HOOD. Delivery/installation was set up for December 3rd, 2013. On the scheduled date, the range hood was delivered and installed. The installer ( Sears contractor) disconnected my old gas appliance and left it in the middle of my kitchen. It didn't bother me at the time since Sears was expected to deliver the new range and haul the old one on same day the hood was delivered/installed. I called Sears customer service ( @ 18007327747 and 18884637924) three times and each time the representatives had a different story regarding the status of my delivery. One of them actually told me the delivery crew for the GAS RANGE was running late and will be coming out an hour later. Anyway, I called back around 6.30 pm PST to check the status of the delivery (again!!)and that was when I was given the bombshell "SEARS CANNOT TRACE MY ORDER AND NO DELIVERY/INSTALLATION was scheduled. At this point I was confused and red with frustration. I quickly strapped my toddler in her car seat and drove down to Sears ( located at Westfield Topanga, Woodland Hills, CA) to show them my receipt and check if talking to them in person would make a difference. The sales person I met was supportive but didn't have the power/means to address the problem. I demanded to speak with the manager and I heard when the person assisting me called for the manager but *** no, the manager felt too big to come talk to a dissatisfied customer. He/ she called the sales person on the phone and instructed him to tell me that nothing could be done until 9.00 am PST Wednesday, December 4, at which time they will cancel my order and reprocess it! So, I went back home with no range and not sure what the story will become in the morning. I regret this whole nonsense since I had wanted to purchase my range at Home Depot but decided to go with Sears since my family always buys from them. I am definitely going to stop the "family tradition" of buying from Sears. I have never seen this level of UNPROFESSIONALISM!!! How can a customer make a purchase and leave the store with a receipt confirming payment and delivery and the next minute Sears doesn't have a record of the transaction? How can they deliver/install the range hood which was purchased together with the gas range and paid for in one receipt and still claim they can't trace the order for the range itself? Why should I be stressed because I took my business to Sears? I would definitely advice anyone thinking of doing business with Sears to learn from my experience!!!
By the way, I am not even mentioning the fact that I paid $119 at the store for hood installation and when the installer showed up he billed me additional $384. Why would Sears charge $503 to install a under cabinet range hood? Should't this be treated as customer rip off?
I AM TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED WITH SEARS CUSTOMER SERVICE!!
