I had a layaway at Sears. I went online and made my payments on time and always payed more than what was due at each time.
Well I made my scheduled payment on 12/11/10 for 3.08. On 12/14/10 I see Sears took an additional 20.00 from my bank. I called Sears and explained my situation and they told me to contact the store that when my layaway is paid I would go there and pick up my item. Well I contacted the store and they say they show nothing about a 20.00 transaction and told me to call the internet department.
I called the internet department and they told me to call this number. I called this number and they told me to call another number, so in all I called 7 different numbers and got no where. You would figure in this day and time when the economy is so poor and retailers are going out of business that retailers would cherish the customers who do business at their stores. I will never shop at Sears or any of Sears Holding again!!!
You lost a customer who's family has shopped at Sears for over 50 years for 20.00. What a way to keep a customer!!!!
