“I bought an electric saw supplied with four blades for...”

Written on: 16/06/2005 by nanicholi (10 reviews written)

I bought an electric saw supplied with four blades for different jobs. A year later I tried to use one of the blades for the first time but it broke as I fitted it. Several months later I sent the broken blade to H.O. and 2 weeks later I had a new set of blades. No guarentee questions, receit demands. We are quick to slate shoddy shopps and services; we should be as quick complimenting them… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/03/2011

I was worried about buying fro Woolworths.co.uk having read reviews, but went with the notion that people will always write a bad review, but rarely write of a positive transaction.

I found their customer service to be efficient and courteous and the product arrived on time and well packaged. The Item itself is exactly as described, although the instructions could have been slightly clearer.

I found the price was extremely competitive and I would defiantly recommend them… Read Full Review

“Woolworths Entertainment (their arm for selling DVDs,...”

Written on: 24/01/2011 by blutacman (1 review written)

Woolworths Entertainment (their arm for selling DVDs, etc) are serviced by The Hut Group. Woolworths Entertainment were offering an excellent price on a particular DVD box set - much cheaper than Amazon or HMV, and they also offer cashback from Quidco. I ordered and paid for several identical sets, which all advertised a three day despatch date. It's now been over 3 weeks, and whilst a few have been sent, others haven't. Their Customer Services are unable to say when the remainder will be sent… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/01/2011

Had nothing but trouble with my order! First of all placed my order and paid via paypal, then had an answerphone message to tell me it didn't go through and I'd need to re-order! I called to chase my paypal refund, which they said would happen automatically! (It didn't!)
Ordered AGAIN and waited for the estimated delivery date, then called them again to ask where my original refund was, and where my new order was... and they couldn't tell me because it was nearly 5pm and all required… Read Full Review

Its been nearly a month that I'm waiting for my boxed DVD set that was supposed to be my wifes christmas present...... Due the bad weather they have had problems - sorry, but I don't accept this as goods were ordered via amazon after ordering this and they came before christmas. Customer services are non existant - completely hopeless in this day and age - very disappointing altogether… Read Full Review

“woolworths.co.uk BUYER BEWARE! ”

Written on: 16/12/2010

woolworths.co.uk BUYER BEWARE!
THIS DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE THE WOOLWORTHS WE KNOW (SEE THE HOLDING COMPANY). THEY HAVE GAINED OUR TRUST BY WHAT APPEARS TO BE BUYING A HIGH STREET NAME BUT DO NOT APPEAR TO HAVE THE RESOURCES OR BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS TO SERVE THE CUSTOMER BASE THAT COME WITH THAT NAME.

My experience? Ordered 1st December to get in early for Christmas. No notification of delays until after order placed. Receiving some of the order bit by bit, but had to cancel 3 items as one… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/12/2010

I took advantage of a 'special offer' for an DSi XL. I was given a date for delivery. The item did not arrive that day. Nor did it arrive the day after that, nor the day after that. No communication from Woolworths or Shop Direct Group (owners of the Woolworths brand). When I called there was a refusal to answer even basic questions. After several hours of trying to get details I learned that the company did not have the item it sold me. I have now been offered a higher priced and different… Read Full Review

I ordered a book from them - said on the product page normally despatched within 2 days but 7 days later they still haven't dispatched and now they say I can't cancel because it's being processed. They didn't respond to my first query about when it would be available. If it's cheap, there's a reason… Read Full Review

I have always shopped online and have never encountered this before ever! They asked me for my account number for… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/11/2010

Woolworths should not be allowed to trade... they let all their staff down by dismissing them all before Christmas. Anyone who buys something from this website should think about the tens of thousands of people that they let down that worked for them. The fact that they recklessly ran their company without any thought for their workers. I think its disgusting that Woolworths are still allowed to trade… Read Full Review

Still awaiting a refund. Was not told that the order would not be coming. Have sent countless e-mails to customer services - mostly met with an automated response, sometimes a real life human being will respond but still getting nowhere. So fed up! Please do not use this service, it almost ruined my party!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/11/2010

Ordered using a discount introductory offer for £20 off first order to new customers. The money was taken straight out my account and kept for a week. My order was cancelled with no notice or any contact from woolworths.

Appalling customer service.

Would not use again or recomend to anyone. Buy from somewhere else, might be a couple of quid more but at least you know you'll get it.

This site will go bust just like the store if they keep treating people this way… Read Full Review

“Simply terrible. ”

Written on: 05/11/2010

Simply terrible.

Order cancelled with no notice, no email, no phone call.

Having paid with Paypal, i'm still waiting for a refund too... Numerous emails to them have just resulted in automated responses, and the phone line is busy.

I would never shop at Woolworths / Very / Littlewoods again and would advise eveyone to look and shop elsewhere, even at the expense of a pound or two. It's simply a lot less hassle… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/11/2010 by mattibee (1 review written)

Generally poor customer service from woolworths.co.uk. Tried ordering using a promotional code I was given to place an order for £20 off of my first order, as I found out that they charge in full and then reimburse the money once they verify the code is valid I contacted their 'customer service' department.

All I wanted to know was whether I will or won't receive the discounted price for my order. This took 2 emails (apparently with 24hr response times!) and 1 phone call over 5 days to… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/09/2010

My experience with Woolworths.co.uk - they are:

Cowardly and rude. They apparently had a problem with my order for a full week, cancelling within a few hours of the expected delivery, but I still have not received a single email from their customer services to apologise for a problem, to explain that my order has been cancelled, or to explain why. Three emails asking these questions have had the questions entirely ignored. Not a single human response from Woolworths.co.uk has apologised for… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2010 by superlateral (1 review written)

Having looked around and found Woolys direct (woolworths.com) to be the cheapest I ordered 2 Tempo Tub chairs on 26th July. Since then I have been told our order is coming on Tuesday three weeks in a row, & recieved an email about a refund of the order which we hadn't requested and they knew nothing about!
We made over 80 (yes I counted them up) attempts to call their call centre. On the few occasions that they have answered the phone they have sounded amazed we have had such problems… Read Full Review
