I bought two Lenovo Yoga notebook computers from these people, costing £1000 each, thinking that John Lewis has a good reputation for customer service. Sadly, it seems that the reputation and reality are very different. One device went wrong after 2 months - the technical support people both in store and on the phone were very pleasant but completely clueless. The chap on the phone was very frank - admitting that he didnt know what he was talking about and indicating I should go to the... (read more)Visit johnlewis.com

I tried to get a price match with a product from a rival retailer. Waited well over the 24 hours they promise to respond in to ne told that they wouldn't price match because it is a showroom not a shop. Really what a ridiculous commment- they are the same thing. They clearly want the advertising gain from their advertising but don't want to honour it. (read more)Visit johnlewis.com

We paid a little more for a Samsung larder fridge and a larder freezer in order to get the John Lewis service. What an awful mistake that was. Money was debited from my ac almost 3 weeks prior delivery. We were promised that the delivery men (from Expert Logistics) would unpack and site the two items and remove all packaging. On arrival (Saturday delivery), the men just dumped two huge boxes in our kitchen and asked us to sign. When we queried about the unpacking and siting they looked... (read more)Visit johnlewis.com

I have been a loyal customer of John Lewis for many years and, until recently, have always found their customer service to be excellent. If things ever went wrong they went out of their way to put them right promptly and couteously, making sure I was left satisfied. Not so with a dishwasher I bought from them recently. I ordered from JL because I thought I could rely on them for a complete service - delivery, installation, and dispoal of the old machine. When the new dishwasher arrived the...

John Lewis appalling customer service. Present ordered on 9th December to be delivered to my elderly aunt and uncle. Found out in January that it had not been delivered, very upsetting for myself and relatives. Emailed a complaint. They replied the item was damaged in transit and they had tried to call me on 20th December, no call, email or text received and 20th Dec was far too late when the present should have been delivered. They refunded the money on 2nd January but NOT the delivery... (read more)Visit johnlewis.com

I normally buy everything from Amazon (excellent returns policy, guaranteed next day delivery, good prices, etc.), but decided I would give John Lewis a go as I'd heard good things and they offer a 5 year warranty on electricals. Never again. Order placed on 27th Dec and website said I'd be called within 48 hours to arrange delivery (I'd have already had the same product from Amazon for 24 hours by then....). Anyway, I waited until 5 days had passed and the order status hadn't changed, so I... (read more)Visit johnlewis.com

John Lewis - they aren't perfect, but they make you feel safe and at almost at home. Surprisingly often the price isn't on the product. Ie most of the time. They also aren't great at explaining the product and amazingly some things of their own label that you can find in the shop aren't available on line. (read more)Visit johnlewis.com

As others, I used to believe that John Lewis provided superior customer service - that no longer appears to be the case.

I have shopped with John Lewis for years because I trusted them to give good customer service. JL wins awards all the time for customer service, this year (2011) included. In 2008 I bought a Hotpoint Condenser Dryer which came with the usual JL 2 year guarantee. That guarantee expired some 11 months ago. Two weeks ago, the Dryer refused to start the programme. I contacted JL with a formal letter to the Senior Customer Services Manager describing the problem and explaining that, although the... (read more)Visit johnlewis.com

Bought it and exchanged for quality issues. Pearls were not as good as claimed by Dower & Hall but price is as expensive as quality one. I understand this is not entirely John Lewis' issues but John Lewis is selling Dower & Hall with its reputation.
Well, the replacement is no better than the first one but it's acceptable. HOWEVER, it came with an unprotected plastic bag and the orginal jewellery packaging box was missing. This is a John Lewis fault, right? The worse thing is, John Lewis... (read more)

John Lewis claim to have the best customer service but I have only had the worst experience with them. I bought a coffee maker for Christmas for my friend which ended up being faulty.

A large range of goods, always delivered in good condition and within good time. the customer service has been good as well.

the customer service is what you are paying for, so for that reason its worth going through ' john lewis '.

John Lewis has boring overpriced furniture. Almost an exercise in how much beige and brown can be fitted on a single page.
However once you get over the initial impression, it at leaswet offers a range of colours for the boring furniture, disguising it somewhat.
On the other hand the electricals I bought there were very well handle, the price match was relatively hassle free and painless. (read more)
