“We were to receive an expensive wedding present from...”

Written on: 25/09/2010

We were to receive an expensive wedding present from my uncle. John Lewis never ever delivered it. They kept putting the phone down on me and basically conned my uncle out of £300 worth of a food processor. We all rang SO many times (24 at last count),but they fobbed us off time and time again, staffed put the phone down on us time and time again and its just truely horrible, upsetting experience. I've been in tears over it, they keep claiming the gift is with a delivery company (for the last… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/09/2010

Ordered a mattress from John Lewis online which shows that it will be delivered within 7 working days. After a few days JL phoned me and confirmed the delivery date. The day before delivery they sent me a text message and confirmed again. But they didn't turn up!!! - I wasted a whole day staying at home just waiting for the delivery - when I phoned customer services they said they didn't know what was happening. They asked me to hold the line - I listened for the music for over 10 mins and had… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/09/2010

We used John Lewis for our gift list which included a £1,400 sofa and chair which was supposed to be delivered saturday. The wrong sofa was delivered and there was no sign of the armchair and two items were missing. It was supposed to be so magical receiving our gifts and it was all ruined. I am still chasing John Lewis re: the missing items and still have not heard why this has happened and when we will recieve our gifts. Surely this should be made a priority and yet i am still waiting for my… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/08/2010

Bought a Sony Bravia internet ready tv. Found out that it will only accept the Sony wifi dongle at around £70.00, John Lewis did not make it clear that you could only use the expensive Sony Dongle. Also 5 year guarantee and no paperwork to back it up. Tried phoning twice and was told copy receipt on its way, no paper work req. What does it cover?? anyway nothing heard since. poor customer service… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/08/2010 by Justice1 (1 review written)

Ordered a bed and mattress. The mattress arrived separately on time and fine. The bed however didn't show up. I waited in a whole day. Phoned up the delivery people who said they triued to deliver. Well they bloody well didn't try to deliver unless trying meant they couldn't get it out of the stock room floor. Lazy, incompetent lying baztards. Cancelled order and will NEVER use John Lewis again!… Read Full Review

“my worst experience ever!! ”

Written on: 30/07/2010

my worst experience ever!!
how to spend £1200, wait for a delivery, see it and get told they can not deliver because you live on the 3rd floor???
unbelievable!! maybe they should ask what floor you live in in the first place on their website??
A total disaster and no will to help!!

Written on: 29/07/2010

John Lewis High Wycombe is usually a really good store but we purchased an Oberon Fire Pit (Garden Burner/Heater) earlier in the summer and it is now a rust bucket after being left out overnight in light rain. Because we did not have a receipt they would not help - even though only John Lewis sells them!… Read Full Review

Bought computer from John Lewis late July, they failed to deliver it twice and the customer service in trying to deal with it was very poor. I had an expectation of good customer service and sadly that seems to be a thing of the past. I took my custom elswhere… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/07/2010

JL's delivery service didn't turn up when expected, though they claimed to have done so, but there wasn't even a note left behind. It's July, and we're waiting for a new, and a hopefully working fridge for another week, since this was the nearest new delivery slot they could offer. But no guarantee of the delivery van turning up this time. All I can do is keep my fingers crossed… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/07/2010

I have recently moved into a new house and have ordered lots of items for delivery and I have to say John Lewis are by far the worse. The first delivery attempt was cancelled as they had ordered the wrong item and on the second attempt we had a delivery slot of 3 - 8pm. At 8.30pm I was told that the delivery was late and should arrive in the next hour. It finally arrived at 9.45pm with no apology. When I complained to the customer service person she basically told me what did I expect with… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/07/2010

I managed to get almost all the appliances for my new house from John Lewis for about £1500 - partly due to their excellent clearance section.

What REALLY impressed me was that I bought half of them in the shop and half online, asked for the same delivery date, and the entire consignment arrived with no missing bits and no hassle. I was expecting them to be slightly disorganised and send two trucks, one for the in-store purchase and one for the online purchase.

The only niggle I have is… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2010

We have just bought bedroom furntiure from John Lewis because we thought that although they are a bit expensive they provide a good service, how wrong we were. When they delivered the items some were damaged so they took them back. However now the items are out of stock, so we are left with half a bedroom furniture set. John Lewis have not been very helpful and I definitely wont be buying from them again. I would not recommend john Lewis… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/06/2010

John Lewis Direct customer service is the worst I ever experienced in my life. Late delivery, kept me waiting till midnight and never turned up, did not receive the tv and the 3d player together. Only offered £75 compensation which i received 8 working after (was supposed to be received in 3-5 working days) and Jamie from customer service was very rude to me making me feel as a beggar. I sincerely sincerely regret ever dealing with John Lewis Direct. now i want to return the tv i really wonder… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/06/2010

John Lewis (Oxford Street) has great prices but is very poor at stock maintenance. They didn't even have a baking tray in their central london stores and recommended I go to Brent Cross - the petrol itself would have been more expensive than the baking tray.
Similary, I went at the weekend to buy a magimix 3200 (again at the Oxford Street branch) and they had none of those in stock either. I consequently went to Selfrdige where they had stock and it was only £1 more expensive. John lewis… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/06/2010

excellent customer service, both before and after purchase. bought my 1st laptop there, it malfunction, they allow me a total refund so i went to buy a newer model.

Its not like those electronic stores who keep making u bring back for repairs, then left u in the lurch after 14 or 28 days to deal with the manufacturer.

Bought my 2rd laptop, again excellent service. Good sales rep to explain functions, better price than some electronics store, even recomend me to take my time to look at other… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2010

I went in to John Lewis - a 15 minute walk across one side of Glasgow to the other - to buy a netbook. They had only a display model in store, so I along with an employee, who knew less about the product than I did, ordered it nnline so I could get the netbook the next day. I thn had to collect the netbook from the store the following day - another 15 minute hike. Where is the customer care in all this. In future - if I buy anything from John Lewis - I'll buy it online. I certainly didn't see… Read Full Review

A fifteen minute walk..? They got it in the next day, and you are moaning that you had to walk for fifteen minutes? Boo-hoo.

Written on: 02/05/2010

I have had a terrible experience with John Lewis over my laptop. Firstly the laptop came with warranty- little did I know I would have to call over 11 different numbers just to get my laptop picked up to be fixed (only 6 months after purchase!). Furthermore they don't even deal with it themselves- I was put through from one person to another, which took the best part of two days. I wasn't able to get a replacement laptop either, for the three weeks they had my laptop. Finally I received it… Read Full Review
