“Poor Customer Service and Overpriced.”

Written on: 07/12/2017 by modo2 (3 reviews written)

I went to Bluewater store to purchase a small Pure DAB radio. Were unable to listen to any of the radios on display as the stands were without power. The staff didn't have any decent knowledge of what was on sale. We moved a Siesta radio to another area to power it up but it was unable to pick up a DAB signal. I was told that wifi reception in the department was terrible... maybe thats why the stands weren't provided with power? I purchased one, based on reviews, with a card. I set it up at… Read Full Review

“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

“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

I recently bought a turkey roast dinner and was very disappointed with the whole meal.under cooked vegetables and extremely over priced. A meal that cost less the £3 to serve cost just under £10. Very disappointed overall… Read Full Review

“Customer Service on the telephone is very poor”

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

“disappointed with a poor service”

The next day, still having not heard from anyone at John Lewis, I called again to try to inquire about my blinds only to hear that the order had not been processed upon the day of purchase and had only been placed after I had gone to inquire in store!… Read Full Review

“Absolutely terrible”

Written on: 13/09/2015 by GilbertHays (2 reviews written)

Paid for a guaranteed delivery and no show. On calling John Lewis they can't say where our delivery is and whether we will receive it today. Absolutely gutted we have wasted our evening waiting for an expensive TV which is no where to be seen. Ridiculous, customer service zero. Will not be recommending to any family, friends or colleagues… Read Full Review

Do you understand the nature of delivering? You need to drive a van, you need hands to lift items, you need to give the current customer attention. Why do you assume there is a direct line to the couriers brain where his whereabouts can be picked from his head as soon as you demand it?

“ total shambles”

Written on: 13/09/2015 by ChandraMaynard (1 review written)

Ordered a sofa on the 15th July.... Have spoken with over 12 different people at John Lewis, half of which could hardly string a sentence together.... None of them, and I mean none of them could give me an accurate date for delivery or indeed tell me where the sofa is!!! I expected so much more from JL, their customer service is practically none existent. I was told six weeks ago the factory was awaiting the material but not to worry it would be there in 2 days... 6 weeks later they just rolled… Read Full Review

Sofa's do not come with tracking devices. Naturally they go from transit between distribution centres and service buildings.. At which point they are not immediately apparent.
I'm not sure if your 'string a sentence' together insult is accent or intelligence related, though it's personal and unnecessary.
I hope you get your sofa soon.

“I purchased a Bosch hub and installation on John Lewis...”

Written on: 13/09/2015 by MarcieBerger (2 reviews written)

I purchased a Bosch hub and installation on John Lewis website, to replace the older Bosch hob. The hob stopped working within less than 12 hours post installation. I called John Lewis to request that they send an engineer to check the hob and the connections to complete the installation. I ended up being transferred several times, with no single department willing to take the responsibility for this. John Lewis' online department did not want to deal with this as well. It turns out, when a… Read Full Review

“Do not use for fitted furniture”

Written on: 23/02/2015 by Reallybusymother (1 review written)

We spent about £5,000 on fitted bedroom furniture, thinking that we would use John Lewis due to their reputation for excellent customer service and quality of product. The survey and booking process was easy, however the day of installation was delayed, causing great inconvenience as I had to rebook the time off work. The fitter turned up to install the furniture (a month later than planned) but the wrong colour doors had been delivered, causing further delays and more time off work… Read Full Review

“Really disppointing warranty service”

Written on: 08/01/2015 by Fussyfellow (6 reviews written)

This relates to a tv we bought about 18 months back. To cut along story short the remote stopped connecting to the tv. We rang their helpline and ended up speaking, in all, to four different people, all of whom gave us different instructions before passing the buck. Eventually we were told to take it back to the store, in its original box with the stand etc packed with it. When we got there we were told we need not have done that as they only needed the main part of the TV. In total that then… Read Full Review

“John Lewis ipad Free extended warranty - Not what you...”

Written on: 18/11/2014 by pennlkh (1 review written)

I purchased an ipad mini from John Lewis because they claim to offer 2 year warranty - one year being manufacturer's and one year extended from John Lewis. If you think this warranty will be the same as Apple's then you are totally wrong. And I am one of those people. My ipad started to develop some issues eg freezing, suddenly becoming very slow etc. I took it to the John lewis in Southsea only to be patronised by the 'tech expert' instore. I listened for around 10 minutes how he tells… Read Full Review

“Hopeless after- delivery service”

Written on: 20/05/2014 by seefive (1 review written)

Ordered a cooker from High Wycombe branch Deliverd promptly, and no problems with it. Unfortunately they forgot to take away the old one, which I had disconnected and placed outside , on the drive, for easy collection. A little annoying, but I thought I'd just give them a call and they could reroute the van to come and correct their error. That's when it all went horribly wrong. A total of 5 phone calls were not returned, I was given various excuses - "need to verify we haven't collected for… Read Full Review

bought a John Lewis microwave April 2013. Has developed a problem with the door no problem, 2 years guarantee, has their name on it give them a ring, they will exchange. In my dreams they pointed out that the guarantee is only for repair and parts. I paid more for this product because it had John Lewis stamped on it I was well aware that another company would have some kind of contract with JL, but I did not expect JL to refuse all responsibility for it's breaking down or that the guarantee… Read Full Review

Why did you give them TWO stars?
Even 1* would be too generous.

“John Lewis Insurance”

Written on: 02/03/2014 by JohnnyHolland (3 reviews written)

Personally, I would AVOID John Lewis for Home or Contents Insurance as from personal experience they are expensive and seem to be totally confused as to what they can or cannot offer - my wife was refused contents insurance (despite 25 years plus insurance without any claims)then bizzarely they called her a few days later and asked if she 'wants to accept out quote'(which we found enormously confusing). Even though we had John Lewis buildings insurance (which costs £800 per year and which I… Read Full Review

“The right hand doesn't know what the left is doing”

Written on: 05/01/2014

A few years ago we bought a tumble dryer from John Lewis online. Luckily we took out a 5 year warranty as it broke down twice. The second time it was written off and a very helpful member of staff called me to explain, and gave me the number to call once I had decided upon the replacement appliance within the specified budget. Then, all due to him giving me the wrong number, it turned bad. I had a week long wild goose chase over the phone with various staff, eventually I got somebody who… Read Full Review

“Failed to deliver or call back”

Written on: 27/11/2013

Ordered an in-stock tumble dryer with a delivery date 1 week later. The night before scheduled delivery a message was left on my answerphone to say the product had failed to arrive from the warehouse and they would call back the next morning with more information. Didn't receive another phone call the next day so I had to contact the helpdesk who had to arrange another callback by the end of the day. You had 1 week, why leave it to the last minute to send the stock from your warehouse? Never… Read Full Review

“No Xmas cheer at John Lewis”

Written on: 13/11/2013

Ordered a Xmas tree to be delivered last Wednesday. Arrived battered and broken. Delivery guy said it wasn't his fault. So called JL delivery people after sending photos of wrecked tree. Said they would collect today and send a new one. Collected old one but no replacement arrived. Waited in for nine hours. Now they say that they will send it again. Date given but no time. Well merry Xmas JL. Nice advert but hope the bear is not getting his present delivered. Get the impression that behind the… Read Full Review

“No iDea how to sell iPads!”

Written on: 05/11/2013 by Sculli (1 review written)

I use both a iMac computer and a PC laptop. Although I have owned computers for over 25 years, my wife is not a fan and I have been wondering whether to purchase an iPad to bring Facebook, iTunes and Google close to hand- indeed, in the comfort of her armchair. We went to browse the Apple counter JL Welwyn and spent at least 20 minutes playing with their demo models. I stopped a member of staff to ask a specific question but was he had replied , he dashed off. Nobody else took any further… Read Full Review

“My family has loved JL for over 50 years - no more!”

Written on: 07/10/2013 by JAdams02 (1 review written)

My family were great fans of JL - until this week. Something has gone very wrong with the company. Not the dept store assistants but their delivery. My 84 year old mother (who lives alone) waited in all day last Friday for the delivery of a new washing machine. Note: hers has broken down. She was told/promised that the delivery driver would ring her 1/2 hour before delivery. Delivery time = between 8am and 6pm so she waited in all day...by 6pm no call. She phoned JL at exactly 6.06 pm. Whilst… Read Full Review
