“Manager at Burnley Store - Aggresive and Dim!!”

Written on: 17/01/2013 by Warrenf (1 review written)

Sent the following to river island after being insulted by manager: I am writing in regards to the disgraceful service received while returning some items to the Burnley (Lancashire) branch of River Island. The goods (Shirts) were initially ordered online and were promptly delivered, tightly packed around cardboard with numerous plastic clips holding it all together. A few of the shirts ordered needed to be returned, so for ease I brought them to the Burnley store. Unfortunately… Read Full Review

“Awful delivery!”

Written on: 28/11/2012 by xAnsyy (1 review written)

On Monday the 12th of November I ordered a dress at River Island. The next morning I received a mail that my payment was declined. Without asking any questions I ordered the dress again the same day. The next day I received a mail that my payment was accepted and that my dress was on its way. I tried to track my order but I didn't have the right information on the site of the carrier, DPD mail. The only thing I knew was that the dress would be here between Monday morning and Thursday evening… Read Full Review

“SCAM. Never again.”

Written on: 17/11/2012

This is my second time ordering internationally from River Island. My first time, I had absolutely no problems. I ordered, and my clothes were delivered within a few days or so. This time, I ordered my clothing like before. However, a few days later I receive a sketchy email claiming I owe, $120 (yes $120) worth of customs charges. I was skeptical at first. (actually, I'm still skeptical) However, after having them call me, and realizing my package was in customs from the tracker, I had to pay… Read Full Review

“River Island customer services is awful”

Written on: 13/11/2012

I don't often leave reviews but the service I've received from RI has prompted me to air my views. I recently ordered two items totalling £125. They didn't fit so I returned them and obtained proof of posting. After a week of not hearing anything (no email or refund) I contacted RI customer services who said they wouldn't even look into it until 28 days after posting. Right, OK, I decided to wait a couple more weeks and try again. After three weeks, I phoned again to see if they could at least… Read Full Review

“More of a question than a review.”

Written on: 26/09/2012 by JImmyboi01 (1 review written)

I am a new customer to River Island online and I am so far extremely happy with their services. Delivery was next day, tracking was useful and the product was fine. I did order a second item a couple weeks later and applied for next day delivery which came but it was a size too small (which was my fault) but I decided to send it back that following day stating in the description part that I would like to exchange this for a Medium. That was on Friday 21st September and I still have not heard… Read Full Review

“Bullsh*t a** service”

Written on: 10/09/2012

I spent 100$ on clothing on River Island last night, and this morning I got an email saying my order is canceled. I called the bank to see if something was wrong with my card, but they said the payment went through. I emailed them and hopefully I will get an email back in 48 hours. The tracking number they gave me hasn't even been on a ups or fedex truck yet. I should've looked at the reviews before ordering all that stuff. As I can see by this website, alot of people didn't get there stuff… Read Full Review

“Online shopping and my delivery!”

Written on: 29/08/2012 by LucyLydiatt (1 review written)

I absolutely love the new river island website as it is more up to date now and so easy to find everything and anything that you want. I placed my first ever online order on saturday 25th August. This was the last day of the offer to get free delivery with any order. Because i placed the order on a saturday evening i knew i couldn't count sunday and monday(bank holiday) as 'working days' so as i read through the website i noticed that i should get my order on the followingThursday. However, i… Read Full Review

“Will never buy again!”

Written on: 13/08/2012

I'm so angry with river island. Been a good customer since long and everytime there was a problem like returning something its been always not very good with the staff. Even the manager is not good. I have two bad experiences so I had enough. Last time I went to change a dress and the store manager was even rude the way she spoke. Everytime you asked them something I don't know what's the problem I feel that they look at your colour, race, age when they want to serve you. Because in the other… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/08/2012 by sarahmeyerse (10 reviews written)

I just love everything in that store. They offer a good selection of women's clothes. Most of the casual clothes are more expensive than the Zara or Mango but still I think the quality is better. There are also lots of basics such as sweats, t-shirts, underwear, pajamas and basic shorts and pants. The delivery was quiet good for an international delivery.It will remain as one of my favorite online stores… Read Full Review

“Never again!!”

Written on: 01/08/2012

I ordered an expensive dress for my Birthday as the River Island store by me does not have as much choice and I wanted a dress with sleeves. I payed extra so it would be here well before my birthday this Saturday, the tracking system says it was on the van in a town which is a ten min drive from my house 2 days ago and I also had a text message saying it would be delivered that day, I still have heard or seen nothing of my parcel,no card has been left and when I ring the parcel service I get… Read Full Review

“Courier Service”

Written on: 16/07/2012 by sarahbessant (1 review written)

I love river island but am furious with their courier service. If I order sale stock and get a calling card left with no details how can I reschedule an order?? I call the courier service and they cant deal with my request as it has to go through River Island! My order is now being sent back and as it is sale stock cant be sent out to me. This is ridiculous that a high street brand such as river island cant use a more accessible courier service. I love river island but after this experience i… Read Full Review

“Couriers need sacking”

Written on: 11/07/2012

after 10 phone calls, and two alleged deliverys i'm still waiting for the order to arrive at my address. Customer services just don't care, along with their 'attitude' that suggests i must be an idiot! I've arranged shipping from Japan quicker and more successfully than these clowns. Never Never Again will i use River Island online or shops… Read Full Review

“Fast Delivery ”

Written on: 05/04/2012 by risingsun (3 reviews written)

I usually prefer buying clothes directly in the shop but have been so busy lately and just placed an order last Monday - three days later it arrived and didnt even pay anything for quicky delivery - with tracking number. Great packaging and good quality products. I'm overall very happy with my order and can only recommend River Island. You will not be dissapointed when buying online… Read Full Review

“My delivery never came!”

Written on: 14/03/2012

I ordered clothes on a Wednesday and was told it would take 3-4 working days, which I figured was enough time as I was going out the following weekend. On Monday I received a text saying my package would be delivered between 07:00 and 13:00, when I wasn't in the house. I had given instructions on the website to leave the package in my back door, as it stays open and the second back door is locked. I arrived home on Monday to no package, no 'attempted delivery' slip in the post, nothing. I… Read Full Review

“Very Hit and Miss”

Written on: 15/12/2011 by RussellsTeapot (4 reviews written)

I started shopping online with River Island when they finally got rid of their Flash-only website; the new site is a definite improvement on its unusable predecessor. Unfortunately they still have no idea how to accurately describe an item online. Mens clothing is getting a little bit silly these days - you can dress fairly normally, but increasing numbers of men want to dress like a lady with skinny jeans, harem pants and silly low-cut tops. Unfortunately, River Island doesn't always let you… Read Full Review
