“I visited a Roman Originals store for the first time...”

Written on: 27/06/2016 by yveoronto-vidal (1 review written)

I visited a Roman Originals store for the first time this weekend whilst out shopping with my 3 kids and partner. I asked the sales assistant if there were other stores in Essex or London as I wanted to purchase a couple of tops but didn't want to try them on in the store and I wasn't sure if they would be the perfect fit.I asked what size the tops went up to and was told that I had the largest size in my hands. She showed me a list of all the stores and told me that there was also an on-line… Read Full Review

“Evening Gowns.”

Written on: 02/06/2016 by KillianRegan178 (1 review written)

Store 125. I`ve been successful in buying a Gown in your store in the past two years. I went back in this year with great expectations of purchasing another one, but so disappointed to find there was none in the Store. The assistants apologised as they know I`m in every year. So I went to Jacques Vert and bought one. … Read Full Review

“my new favourite ”

Written on: 29/05/2016 by anniederbyshire (2 reviews written)

I have only just found Roman online! I have now purchased from them twice! The first for some holiday dresses and then for a dress for a wedding! Sizes are perfect and the quality of the dresses and other purchases are very good quality! Was a little worried my very late purchase would not arrive for me the next day but a little phone call to customer service put my mind at rest! I love my new purchases and cannot wait to wear my holiday things in a few weeks! Thanks… Read Full Review

“Poor Returns Policy and Unhelpful Staff!”

Written on: 23/05/2016 by 477Campbell (1 review written)

So, my mother bought a dress from ROMAN in Phoenix Rose Garden Centre in Crews Hill, Enfield and before she paid for it she asked the sales assistant that as she wasn't sure about the dress that if she changed her mind about it once home could she bring it back? The sales assistant said yes and she had 30 days to return it. So my mum bought it and changed her mind and 1 week later returned it, only to be told that she could not have a refund but only a gift voucher or exchange instead. My mum… Read Full Review

Did you get a refund? I have almost exactly the same situation going on right now and need to know whether I am banging my head against a brick wall.

“Don't buy from here”

Written on: 30/04/2016 by Underbelly10 (1 review written)

How careful the staff are programmed to say you can return goods but fail to say no refund it has to go on a gift card.how long will this store last a warning to all that purchase goods from this company you are being ripped off.No wonder Primark are doing so well. Check the review from a lady in Barnsley who got a full refund also a company that has no clue on customer service.I will look forward to spending my gift card at a shop or shops I choose the staff will have to work hard as I will be… Read Full Review

“Rubbish Returns Policy”

Written on: 24/04/2016 by Castroiw497 (1 review written)

I went to my local store to buy address for wedding, I said that I would prefer to take it home and try it on, they said fine and I did. The dress which cost £85 did not really suit me so I returned it 5 days later, only to be told that I could not have refund and would I like anything else.I argued the point, saying how was I supposed to buy anything else when I was £85 out of pocket. The assistant insisted that I would have been told there policy when I purchased the dress, but I certainly… Read Full Review

“Awful Returns Policy”

Written on: 14/04/2016 by ihatepoorservice (1 review written)

Clothes look lovely on the internet and I decided to make use of their free delivery offer knowing that there was a store fairly near that I could return the dress to. Sadly the dress did not suit me and I went to return it but NO returns are accepted at their stores for internet or any other store purchase, only a gift card. Silly me this was hidden on their website Terms and Conditions and was NOT made clear. So now I have to pay the return postage. This is the only company I have found… Read Full Review

“I never received my order nor my refund.”

Written on: 03/04/2016 by calmar (1 review written)

I placed an order fo 70 € in November 2015 and I never received it. Following my emails requesting information on my goods, (I sent 4 emails before I received an answer)I was told that Royal mail informed them that the package had been delivered to me. That's pretty incredible, since I would have had to sign a receipt at the moment of delivery, and I can assure you that I didn't. Therefore they said they couldn't refund me for my undelivered goods. Once I protested, back in February, they… Read Full Review

“Two dresses bought instead of intended one. ”

Written on: 01/04/2016 by Suzie12 (1 review written)

I went to find a dress at Roman originals in Bicester Avenue today. I was confident I would find something for my nieces wedding in two weeks time. As soon as I went into the store I was greeted by a lovely lady who has not worked there long. I told her what I was looking for and before long I had over ten dresses to try on. One dress in particular was not my usual style or colour, but as the lady had brought it to my attention I thought I would try it any way. The Drew did not fit and I really… Read Full Review

“returns policy”

Written on: 13/02/2016 by emma9099 (1 review written)

I bought a dress from Roman for a wedding and in purchasing was told that I had 30 days to return it. I then bought another from Roman that I liked instead with the intent on returning the first one only to find that their returns policy is exchange only. Some of this may be my fault for not looking for a notice at the till point that states their policy but I do think this should be made clear on purchase. For example the lady should have said 'you have 30 days to exchange' not 'you have 30… Read Full Review

Elizabethlorraineleebody's Response to emma9099's Review

Written on: 10/03/2016

Hi there,

You can actually return the item to their returns address in Birmingham and they will give you a full refund - it's only if you take it into a store that they give you exchange only. Returns address is Roman Originals Returns, Unit 1 Vantage Point, 5 Wingfoot Close, Birmingham, B24 9JH. I know because I just returned a dress and got a full refund. :-)

Did you purchase the clothing direct from one of their shops or on line? As I want to return something to the shop and do not want credit notes and was not advised of this policy. thank you

Lucy1000000's Response to emma9099's Review

Written on: 16/03/2016

This is not your fault at all,since they have an unusual policy they should have told you about this before payment.They should not expect customers to come in and look around for notices to read.as we are there to shop.I was told at the till about the 30 day but the NO MONEY BACK was not mentioned. The voucher system takes away the freedom of where and when you can spend your money.

I bought a dress for my wedding last week and want to take it back as once trying it on at home in normal light not good. I am quite shocked to hear of their policy as this is the first time I have shopped there and spent £75. I was also told you can bring it back I would not have purchased anywhere that doesnt give a full refund.

“Returns with Roman are Rubbish”

Written on: 11/01/2016 by GeorgiaLeah (1 review written)

I purchased a coat online which unfortunately has to be returned due to being too small. It seems it will cost me in the region of £6 or more to return which is not refunded. If taken back to the shop you have to have a credit note. I definitely wont be ordering online again, what a farce! I did read the terms of return but did think postage was included. Back to Marks and Spencer's no problem with returning goods to them… Read Full Review

“returns policy ”

Written on: 12/12/2015 by pvMatthews497 (1 review written)

have ordered a whole load of stuff I am now scared if it does not fit it will cost me a fortune to return it. Don't worry I will do what I did to all the other store who have now changed there policies. I wont mention name- what I usually do as someone highly techno savvy is I make sure that when you Google Roman Original the 1st thing you will see is there returns policy and warning. I have done this with quite a few store and they have changed their in store returns… Read Full Review

“Brilliant Staff in Leamington”

Written on: 23/11/2015 by Watson95 (1 review written)

I have been a regular customer to Roman for about 1 year and have never received anything but brilliant customer service. They always have time for you and always make you feel at ease, for me it is always enjoyable going in the Leamington store, there is a great atmosphere in there and all the staff seem to get along with each other really well- which adds to the atmosphere. I never leave without a purchase and the store is a great addition to Leamington!!!… Read Full Review

“Poor service on returns”

Written on: 03/09/2015 by shoppingismypassion (1 review written)

I recently purchased 2 blouses from Roman Originals , one of which was not suitable. I did not realise that their return policy was for an exchange or credit only . I do think that this should be pointed out at point of sale as they are the only shop i know of that do this, so it is not something you take into consideration when buying. I will however never buy again from Roman as 4 months later i still have the credit as haven't found anything else I would like in exchange… Read Full Review

“Amazing Staff”

Written on: 03/09/2015 by Wendytrill (1 review written)

I want to thank the girls at the Orpington Branch for always being so helpful. I have spent a fortune in the shop and won't go anywhere else. They remember what I have bought and recommend styles to me as well as persuading me to try on things outside of my comfort zone. I am a larger lady but they don't make any comments, in fact are very complimentary. The Manager is always helpful and polite and very accommodating and the Supervisor is the lady who helped me most with my summer wardrobe… Read Full Review
