“The worst online shopping experience one could ever...”

Written on: 08/01/2010

The worst online shopping experience one could ever undertake, useless website, says items are in stock that arent, says they are ordered when they are not, then numerous auto generated responses from the order system and Customer services.
No actual human feedback to my complaints.
Your better off using someone like Next their so much slicker than this shower, I would say its like dealing with a business entirelly staffed by Remploy, but that would do Remploy staff a severe injustice, as… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/12/2009 by fatherabraham (1 review written)

i was impressed with the ease in which i could make my purchases on the riverisland web site. I was actually encouraged to buy more than I anticipated as the layout was very customer friendly. I purchased several menswear items such as trainers, shirt, coat and jeans and they all arrived very quickly and on time. I would recommend the website as it's much nicer than the stores and they had all my choices in stock - which was fantastic. A very good site in comparison to other retailers sites… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/11/2009

River Island fronts itself with an attractive, easy to navigate online site that means its easy to make regretable purchases.

Compared to the other major retail outlets River Island overprices its goods. What do we look for when we value an item? Personally if I am going to pay above the odds I'd expect quality and durability. The clothing fails misserably on both. Clothes perish after only a few wears/washes and given the price tag I find this particularly dissapointing… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/09/2009

It took 3 working days for the dress to be despatched from River Island(this was ordered on 7th Sept 09). The courier company mis-sorted it. Since this time I have made 8 phone calls, no one is getting back to me re this parcel. River island said they would call me back on two occasions and I have heard nothing............I am still waiting… Read Full Review

“I had nearly been put off from buying from this site,...”

Written on: 28/08/2009 by jessica87 (22 reviews written)

I had nearly been put off from buying from this site, as a friend spent £200 on items that never actually left the warehouse, even though she'd got an email to say they'd been dispatched, and taken the money.
She eventually got a refund after 3 weeks.
I love a lot of the clothes from River Island so it would have been a shame to let that get in the way. The website was a bit of a nightmare to navigate, but I was happy with the delivery time and packaging. But looking at previous reviews… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/07/2009 by amberwood (8 reviews written)

Received unbelievably good service the first time I ordered-I'd seen a pair of shoes instore but they didn't have my size. Found them online, placed my order on a Saturday, selected Standard Delivery as Express seemed pricey especially as it wasn't a Next Day service. I couldn't belive it when they arrived on Monday! River Island had actually shipped them on a Sunday and Homr Delivery Network, although the were sent on a 48 hour service, delivered them the very next day! The shoes were well… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/07/2009 by lostgirl (1 review written)

Not happy - ordered 6 items from River Island - came to around £215 with next day delivery
then went on to my account to find they had cancelled one of the items as it wasnt in stock - NO EMAIL TO TELL ME THIS
THEN... to make matters worse they then charged my card again for the total without the item!!!!

Sent them an email and NO REPLY - bad customer service

Customer service not open on Saturdays - so now I have to wait till Monday to get my £215 back!!!!!

Ruined my weekend as I needed the… Read Full Review

Love river island, I am a complete sucker for them, my wardrobe is full of clothes from there! I have ordered loads of times and not had any problems. There's only 1 thing that I don't like, and that is if you want express delivery it's £6.95, which is extortionate compared to other websites!… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/05/2009 by Spendaholic (1 review written)

Ordered a top from the website, wore it once and washed it following manufacturers guidelines. The top ripped so I took it to my local store where the shop asisstant said it definitely wasnt a manufacturers fault and it must have been my washing machine! I asked for a contact number for head office and was given a card with their number on it.
I contacted consumer direct who told me I should have been given a pre paid envelope so that my top could be sent away to be examined for fault.
I… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/04/2009 by asbestrossity (1 review written)

Well I ordered some clothes two weeks ago, for just over £130 quid. Paid extra for the 48hr delivery. Two days after I returned from work to find a delivery card from "The Home Delivery Network", stating that they had left my parcel at my back door (on a busy street, with a popular high school across the road). Having checked the back door and finding no parcel there, obviously I was a tad annoyed so immediately contacted the delivery company.

I was told directly that the delivery driver had… Read Full Review

After reading all of the bad reviews of River Island of how peoples items didn't turn up when ordering off their website i was scared to use it, however i ordered my party dress last sunday (7th December) and it came in 4 working days which is within the time they said it would.
The website is also very easy to use and it is well laid out… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/05/2008

River Island www.riverisland.com is the most awful website regarding actually fully loading, took me an hour to access the checkout part of the site, delivery took days longer than i was told, could not track my order due to the website not working AGAIN and the store refuses to hold items for you to collect. Also, the website doesn't have a direct customer services number, you have to call a store for it. What kind of national company is this?… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/03/2008 by emmabryce (1 review written)

I placed an order 3 weeks ago, spent over £200 and paid extra for 48hr delivery and guess what? Still no clothes! I am very disappointed after numerous phone calls to their customer service people and email after email. They resonded after a week stating the courier company delivered my parcels in my porch. I don't have a porch! No card was put through either so I either have neighbours as theives, a porch at the front I've been unaware of or maybe River Island's delivery system is poor. It's… Read Full Review
