“Having looked around and found Woolys direct...”

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

“I ordered from this website because of the delivery...”

Written on: 20/05/2010

I ordered from this website because of the delivery time. The website claims to offer next day delivery. Once the order was processed the date given was two days later - ok. But 3 days later I am still waiting and the goods have not even been dispatched! The "track now" function on the website shows the delivery date as yesterday!!! The call centre staff seem unable to do anything about this. A fancy dress costume which arrives after the party is clearly useless. Not impressed… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/12/2009

Very disappointed, thought I would see what the new online Woolworths had to offer, ordered Vtech Kids Digital Camera which was on offer for a great price. Ordered it 10th November with a date of delivery 2nd December as they were awaiting stock. Still waiting now and they have put the date back twice now till the 16th December! I'm not risking it that late so now going to try and get a refund and buy the product elsewhere! Very disappointed bring back the high street Woolworths!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/11/2009

Ordered a child's toy as a present, as they were the only place offering next-day delivery, which I needed. I paid the extra fee for morning delivery, too.

Next morning came and went, and nothing was delivered. On checking online, I noticed a note saying "please call us", which I did. I was told that the problem was that I specified an office address for delivery, which they don't do -- except that they don't tell you anywhere during checkout (they have a list of addressed they don't deliver… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/09/2009

It was very sad when the British institution that is Woolies bit the high street dust, most of us had grown up shopping there. Having always bought Ladybird clothes for the kids, especially for school, it became a nightmare finding the same fit, quality and value at other retailers. I stumbled across the Woolies site after searching for ladybird school trousers for my son. So good to see they still have a presence. I purchased two pairs for £10.00 on the tuesday night and they came the next… Read Full Review

“The website is pretty good, however being "Woolworths"...”

Written on: 16/08/2009 by AdaMax (4 reviews written)

The website is pretty good, however being "Woolworths" it doesn't feel the same, nor does it have the same spark with it when purchasing an item, as the main attraction for myself and im guessing with some others was that woolworths was just one of those shops that was fun to walk around.. browse then buy randomly.
Unfortunately that just doesnt feel the same to me.
However...
The cost of things is fairly competitive and they have a decent range of items on the website with good customer… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/11/2008

I placed an order for some toys for Christmas and had them delivered to my local store. The goods arrived well within the time period that was promised, however when I got them home I noticed that a robot I had purchased had an arm missing and the box was all ripped. I called the customer service line and as well as receiving NO apology for this I was told it was up to me to take back to store and re-order my new toy! I asked if this could be collected from my home address and if I could have… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/11/2008 by MDG (1 review written)

Ordered some flowers from Woolworths for a birthday and found out the day after the flowers were supposed to be delivered that the order had been cancelled. No specific reason was given just a list that may have caused the cancellation! That didn't give solace to my 80 year old grandmother who was looking forward to her flowers on her birthday!… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/07/2008 by Lou1 (1 review written)

Placed an order on 22nd July for an exersise bike (online). Delivery date given in first email as Monday 28th. Waited in ALL day, nothing. Checked emails, surprise surprise a new email arrived from Woolworths saying TUESDAY 29th. Have waited in ALL day again....nothing. Apart from ANOTHER email sent this morning saying the order had been despatched and to allow a COUPLE OF DAYS! How vague is that? Phoned the Customer Services. Told me it was down to the couriers. Could you call them I asked?… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/07/2008

i ordered a 32 inch medion tv from www.woolworths.co.uk on 19th july 2008, and woolworths emailed to say it has been despatched, only to be told when phoned by a courier today(a courier that is unknown to me, and apparently not trackable)that it will be tuesday at least before i get it, when i buy online nearly everything is next day, so why the time delay?
a) I don't know what courier is delivering so I cant track it
b) I cannot find a number to telephone for online shopping
c) Email says that… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/05/2008 by pebbles1006 (1 review written)

I ordered an item on 15th April for my son's birthday on 25th April, I received an email on the 21st confirming it had been despatched and should be received by 23rd, great or so I thought. It still hadn't been received on 24th so I called the helpline to find out what was happening, I was told that it had been despatched to the courier on 21st and not to me, I asked why it didn't say this in the email and I was told that it was 'irrelevant where it had been despatched to'. Very unhelpful and… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/12/2007

I ordered two slob chairs from Woolworths on the 9th of November, to be delivered on the 14th. I am still waiting! The first order was lost, so they were reordered. One was delivered on the 5th of December, and now I have been told that my other order may be lost again. As they are Christmas gifts, and there are only 5 days to go, I am very disappointed. I will never use Woolworths ordering service (if you can call it a service) again!… Read Full Review

“The telephone service is so busy, in my experience,...”

Written on: 12/12/2007 by markkk01 (1 review written)

The telephone service is so busy, in my experience, you can be hanging on the phone for 40 mins before you get answered.

The people try to be helpful but can only send an email to the couriers to find out what's happening and that takes 2 days.

They are not allowed to phone them direct unless they get permission from a supervisor.

I have now just been told that the couriers have now LOST the order and I could re-order but they can't make sure I will get the order.

I think that this practice is

Written on: 09/10/2007 by ticktock37 (1 review written)

I am very disappointed with the level of service from Woolworths customer service online. No good will gestures, or help as to when the product would be available. Just generally a very poor level of service. I won't be getting the book again, as to avoid disappointing the children when they choose something that doesn't exist! I have written this review based on my own opinions and experiences, and the information contained in this review is factual… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/09/2007 by RuthT (1 review written)

Having placed the order online back in May and been advised by email that the order should be delivered on or before Tuesday, 19th June 2007, we decided to go ahead with this. One of the DVD's was intended as a gift for a birthday, and another for a friend, and both were initially wanted for May.

Both myself and my husband made many phone calls to the Woolworths Home Shopping line - each time we were told we could cancel the order if we wanted. Why would we want to do this? We ordered the… Read Full Review
