Written on: 06/02/2016 by HelenAtHome (2 reviews written)

I love everything about john lewis. The store layout is great and what they sell is only the best quality, and the staff are first class. I couldn't ask for anything more. Don't over expand though… Read Full Review

“John Lewis Kitchens poor service”

Written on: 03/02/2016 by rubbishrubbish (1 review written)

I will never buy kitchens from John Lewis ever again. Poor customer service. Don't be fooled by the service before you pay, once you have paid the customer service goes downhill. Before they take your 20% deposit they are helpful, respond to your calls and emails but once deposit is taken, no response to emails, I had to chase up but still no response, i finally had to call and speak with someone else to deal with it. Wasted a lot of my time. Paid a lot of money for poor customer service… Read Full Review

“Worst customer service I have ever received”

Written on: 29/01/2016 by EllenMcCoy (1 review written)

I placed an order back in June which included some chocolate items, gift sets and a candle. Some of these were Christmas presents because I like to be organised. When the delivery arrived, the chocolate items had melted. A couple of other items had damaged packaging. So I complained to the customer service department. I ended up getting replacement items sent and a refund for the one item no longer available. After over two weeks, I had not had the replacement items delivered. It then turned… Read Full Review

“Where's my refund?”

Written on: 17/01/2016

Being my favourite brand but no store in the area where I live, I bought Christmas gifts from John Lewis.com for collection from my local Waitrose store. This part all went to plan. It went wrong when I returned one of the items to that same Waitrose store on 13.12.15. I was given a Returns receipt but I am still waiting for the refund. By 6.1.16 I had heard nothing further so I sent an email to the customer service team to inform them that the refund had not been received. I was told my query… Read Full Review

“Poor Service”

Written on: 15/01/2016 by Adamalc (1 review written)

After placing an order online for a Samsung 9kg washing machine on Saturday 26th December 2015, we had a delivery date confirmed for the following Saturday which was the 2nd January 2016. The first problem we encountered was the delivery time. We were quoted that it would be delivered between the hours of 11:00 to 15:00. After receiving no call (which is the normal procedure) and the time pressing on, I decided to call the delivery company which was an independent courier service around 14:45… Read Full Review

“John Lewis don’t care about their customers any...”

Written on: 15/01/2016 by Cook266 (1 review written)

I can’t believe I am writing this about my used to be favourite shop, but I thought I have to share this so that future customers can benefit and possibly be heard by John Lewis. My story goes like this, I bought the dishwasher from John Lewis I have to add I am shopping with John Lewis quite frequently because of quality staff they sell and mainly to avoid a hassle of returning the item if something goes wrong. The same dishwasher costs cheaper with online dealers like Appliance Direct etc… Read Full Review

“DREAFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE, NOT THE BEST ON THE HIGH STREET”

I bought a defective SONY TV from JL Southampton just before Xmas, after spending an entire day fighting their Customer Services (joke) trying to get it replaced before Xmas and hours chasing them to do something I sourced a replacement locally and got it swapped over. My mother worked for JL in Windsor many years ago and would horrified with what they have done to the Brand… Read Full Review

“Total Nightmare...Incompetance At Its Best”

Written on: 26/12/2015 by beDavis100 (1 review written)

I ordered 2 items on black Friday, I then get a call next day from John Lewis's credit check department. The lady asked me my bank details and said no problem we will sort delivery.

I then get an email the next day cancelling my order.I ring up to ask why and they said I failed credit checks, I said okay, can I reorder? No I'm told, the items you want are no longer in stock, ring back in a month and order it then as we can't accept preorders.  I say okay, but are you going to honour black Friday

“Customer service or customer fob off?”

Written on: 22/12/2015 by York67 (1 review written)

To cut a long story short (4 weeks, 2 hrs of phone calls, 2 emails and a 40 mile round trip to store ...... So far) John Lewis seem to have lost my order, which I placed online and paid using a gift card. They are claiming they have no record of it and refuse to reissue the gift card, which we subsequently threw away. I now have no gift card and no product, which has also gone up in price since I originally placed the order. Despite providing specific details of times, dates, item, price,etc… Read Full Review

“First time using John Lewis Online, NEVER AGAIN!!!”

Written on: 15/12/2015 by pgBriggs184 (1 review written)

I wanted to purchase a Meile Oven recently and could have got it anywhere and how I wish I did!I decided I would get it through JL because they were (or so I told myself) a reputable company, been around for years and had a good reputation.How naive was I not reading the reviews? At no time during the NUMEROUS e-mails, could I get a simple answer as to when I might expect delivery. I kept getting given 'case numbers' saying someone would be dealing with it. I can not express my frustration as… Read Full Review

“John Lewis on-line shop steel customer's money”

Written on: 07/12/2015 by Serguei (2 reviews written)

My wife buys from John Lewis shops quite often. Recently after visiting the shop she realised that pillow cases were not include with the duvet she bought, so she went on John Lewis web site and decided to buy on-line 2 pillow cases that match the duvet. What really arrived was one single pillow case instead of two she paid for and not the one she ordered. She contacted John Lewis customer service by e-mail, but was told that she had to call them. During the call it was agreed that they would… Read Full Review

“Added Care Rip Off!!!!”

Written on: 03/11/2015 by AryanBell (1 review written)

John Lewis are consistently charging £50.00 for Added Care insurance on cameras that fall below the £1,000 price mark, even though their insurance team have told them several times that it is £40.00 My husband and I have both bought cameras this year at John Lewis. One for around £980.00 and the other for £975.00. Both times we were quoted £50.00 for 3 years Added Care. However, when you ring the insurers direct, it is only £40.00. This seriously needs to be looked into so other buyers… Read Full Review

“Absolutely awful - will never use John Lewis again.”

Written on: 31/10/2015 by JamesM777 (1 review written)

Wish I had read the reviews first. I ordered a dishwasher from John Lewis. After 8 days with no sign of it, I phoned and was told that the couriers would be contacting me shortly to arrange a delivery time. When another four days passed with no sign I rang again, and this time I was told the courier would contact me within two working days. Five more days passed, I rang again, and was given the absurd excuse that the courier did not have my mobile number and so they could not contact me to… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/10/2015 by Cantrellbm350 (1 review written)

I wanted to order an AEG integrated fridge from John Lewis and noticed Curry's had a better offer. Telephoned John Lewis to see if they could Price Match and was told this would be looked into. Telephoned John Lewis back and was told the Price Match enquiry was not put through. Although I was offered another price match which I declined. Curry's offer on the item had changed! I decided to buy the fridge from John Lewis as I had previously purchased an integrated freezer from John Lewis and… Read Full Review
