“John Lewis, not the store it use to be!!”

Written on: 07/08/2017 by Jamar44 (1 review written)

John Lewis was also know for great customer service, great product info etc. My parents have shopped there for years and myself too but recently both my mum and I had said how pore the store service had become. We wanted to buy a rug while we were in there the other day and had to search for someone to help us, in the older days you had members of staff in every department waiting to serve and help. I'm writing this as this is not the first time, we went to buy a hoover and again service… Read Full Review

“AVOID. Your items won't arrive, and they'll blame you.”

Written on: 03/08/2017 by gmushet (1 review written)

Bought a guitar using mostly a giftcard but also some paypal credit. For some reason the guitar had a 4 week delivery time. This seemed odd as the guitar is a very common guitar (can get it in any local guitar shop CHEAPER than John Lewis, could also buy it on Amazon and get it delivered the NEXT DAY, because it's 2017 and John Lewis hasn't realised), but since it was a gift card, I bought it at John Lewis anyway. 4 weeks came and went and heard not a peep from John Lewis about the now late… Read Full Review

“5 year guarantee for TV”

Written on: 27/07/2017 by KHB12 (1 review written)

Purchased a Philips TV from John Lewis and had a manufacturer defect with WIFI connection after 4 years and 8 months, JL repair subcontractor stated that the part was not available and therefore a repair was not possible, asked if they could source part from 'another' and answer was the part was not available anymore. I was told that their subcontractor was a Philips authorised repairer and "could speak on behalf of Philips" i checked this with Philips and they had not even heard of them… Read Full Review

“ 4 year warranty on an idesit fridge freezer”

Written on: 15/07/2017 by NoeHowell (1 review written)

my indesit fridge freezer broke down within my 4 year warranty period; firstly the hotpoint engineer was off on the sick and did not turn up on the date specified. then john lewis gave me the promise of a replacement hotpoint fridge freezer without specifying a date as to when I could expect it. after a month without my indesit fridge freezer and throwing out food which had gone off I contact lewis' three times without ever getting a date for the delivery of my hotpoint fridge freezer. it was… Read Full Review

“Still going strong”

Written on: 13/07/2017 by lolamola (3 reviews written)

I have shopped with John Lewis for more years than I can remember and I still love this Store. These days I mainly shop online due to time limitations but still love the odd visit here and there to their WGC store. Being able to return items so easily too also an added bonus. The staff are always friendly and very helpful. I love the variety available online with so many different designers I always find what I am looking for in John Lewis. I ordered my entire new bedroom furniture only to find… Read Full Review

“ Utterly Poor Costumer Service !! ”

Written on: 08/06/2017

I have always been a loyal John Lewis costumer. I felt shopping with them, from little to big needs, was a no brainer as they provided quality products and first-class customer (which is crucial for me). My view, sadly, has now completely changed. After a recent issue that was dealt with so appealingly and left me feeling very stressed and out of pocket. So much so, I am opting not to shop with them ever again. I have spoken with tons of different people trying to get something resolved and the… Read Full Review

“Terrible Delivery & Customer Service”

Written on: 10/05/2017 by MillenHouse (1 review written)

I have always loved John Lewis. It used to be my first choice for big purchases, where quality, reliability and customer service were so important. However, my view has now completely changed. I ordered an expensive fridge online very recently. On the named delivery day I got a text with a morning delivery slot, but the fridge didn't arrive. Over the next 24 hours, I phoned John Lewis 3 times. Twice they promised they would phone me back, but they never did. Each time I was kept on hold… Read Full Review

“Free extended warranty- you get exactly what you pay for!”

Written on: 02/05/2017 by Jamus59 (3 reviews written)

I have a Lenovo Miix 300 ideapad. After just over one year (the manufacturers warranty) a single key, the letter V, fell off. No problem I thought, John Lewis have it guaranteed for two years. I phoned customer services, who said it needed to be returned to store (even though it was bought online), a 50 + mile round trip for me. The staff in store were courteous and helpful, sending it away for me. I was promised that should it not be back within 28 days they would provide me with a new… Read Full Review

“Shoddy product, worse service”

Written on: 22/04/2017 by Dickson1993 (1 review written)

After 20 years our old cooker needed replacement, though it was still working. After much research we opted for a John Lewis brand cooker and buying from JL. The cooker conked within days. After much too-ing and fro-ing between my husband and customer services, a workman was finally sent out who advised getting a replacement. Again much too-ing and fro-ing with an email saying one thing and a text another until finally workmen arrived to remove the faulty cooker - with no replacement and no… Read Full Review

“Zero customer service ”

Written on: 17/03/2017 by Mellywoo (2 reviews written)

As I couldn't leave a zero rating I have had to unfortunately leave a 1 star. A zero rating is more appropriate for the zero customer service I have received from John Lewis . I can totally understand why John Lewis only has a low overall score of good reviews , the majority being bad ! I am currently in the unfortunate position of dealing with their uncaring and unprofessional approach to customer service . Their Facebook page is a joke , acknowledging comments as if they are going to deal… Read Full Review

“ASUS K31BF Desktop PC, Intel i5, 12GB RAM, 2TB, Black”

Written on: 28/02/2017 by nocustomercare (4 reviews written)

When I purchase a product I from John Lewis I expect quality, unfortunately this is not the case with my new ASUS K31BF Desktop PC, Intel i5, 12GB RAM, 2TB, Black. I purchase the ASUS PC to replace an aging but serviceable Vista based Dell System. I am sadly suffering from a bad case of buyer remorse. The ASUS K31BF is extremely noisy when compared with my 10-year-old Dell. Most of the noise comes from the fan but there also seems to be a fair amount generated by disk activity. When I compare… Read Full Review

“Apalling customer service”

Written on: 20/01/2017 by Butlerup104 (1 review written)

Had to chase for hours on the phone to find out what happened to the refund on my return. In the end told that this was sitting as a credit on my account- which I was unable to access. Promised call back, which never came. No acknowledgement from customer services at all that anything was wrong with the poor communication or my experience. Lied to by being told it was normal not to receive a notification when item is returned, but on probing found that to be untrue. No attempt to remedy the… Read Full Review

“Very poor service”

Written on: 03/12/2016

Sadly this store now relies on its past excellent customer service. I have updated my house this year & returned to John Lewis for the quality and service I have received previously,I have bought Kitchen, Flooring, curtains and blinds. Living very close to the store and a frequent customer I was aware the service in the store had deteriorated but because of past experience thought large purchases would be of good standard & service and problems in store are because there are so few staff… Read Full Review

“Service Issues”

Aberdeen Store over-run by young, over confident, no service skills staff. The older staff are ignored and the younger especially in the male dominated department preen like peacocks. The days of buying from John Lewis for quality and service are gone… Read Full Review
