Greff's review of The Appliance Zone


“Appliance Zone tells me my order went backorder and...”

Written on: 02/02/2009 by Greff (1 review written)

Good Points

General Comments
Appliance Zone tells me my order went backorder and but doesn't know when it will arrive I have the right to cancel my order. But it seems that you have to petition for a cancellation of an order, they have the right to refuse to cancel your order even if they tell you its backordered. It was sub 0 weather outside and I need this valve by Friday the week of Jan 13 2009 in Chicago. So all they have to do is say it is in stock and you have to accept their word the next day even if they told you it was backordered 24hrs before. So if the valve wasn't backordered why did it take until Jan 31 2009 for me to get it if it was in stock on the shelf? 17 days for off the shelf item not backordered?
