Unfair Business Practise By KMART

Boycott Description

 

Black Friday at Kmart? Forget about it. I found this item online.  

Quick View

American Pets Large Suede and Berber Cross Hatch Pattern Dog Pet Bed 27" x 36"  Save 19.00 only 19.99 orig.39.99.  After calling halfway across the ocean they could not see the same site I pulled up on my computer. Then they wouldn’t give me a number to corporate but an address. After I told them I would file a complaint and I needed an employee number a miracle happened and the number magically fell from the sky.

I was practically called a liar because they could not see the same site that I was pulling up 3 times as we spoke? I told them Kmart.com Friday & Saturday 2 Day Online & In-Store.What really got to me I had to describe what that web page looked like and I was even logged in the site with my name at the top!!!!!! After spending over 400.00 in two days at sears I'm ready to cut my card up and throw it in the trash.

I found a similar item at Tractor Supply online but I was told the item was sold out , They apologized and told me I could choose any other items in stock and take 30% off. At least they made an honest attempt to satisfy a customer. That is where I will take my business from now on and return the items I have bought for Christmas back to Sears as they are the parent company.

Unfair Business Practice

Yesterday we had purchased a television from Kmart.com. We got the e-mail confirmation that the item was ready to come pick up at the store in Belleville New Jersey. We were instructed to arrive at the store two hours after the order was placed. We got to the store went to the layaway department to retrieve our television. Then out of the blue the manager shows up and claims that are television has been sold. Oh I said could we please have a refund. He said sure follow me to the customer service counter. When we got up there he canceled the online order and said don't worry Your Visa card will not be charged. I on the other hand knew better the Visa card had been charged $320.So he picked up one of the handheld scanners scanned the packing slip and punch in all these numbers and said that should be fine you should have your money back. When I got home and contacted the bank the money had been debited from our account in the amount of $320. I contacted Kmart.com they stipulated that your refund would be processed within 3 to 5 business days. Not only was I not able to get another television but I was also out $320 to spend on my family for Christmas. This was the most atrocious thing I've ever seen during the holiday season.I really wish somebody would write a law that would force Retailers and banks to return money just as fast as they are able to take money. Thank you Kmart for ruining my family's Christmas.

I will NEVER shop at Kmart (or Sears) again.  KMART advertised Ninendo DS LIte for $89.99 for Saturday,"starting at 6am".  I went to the KMart in Robinson Township, near Pittsburgh, PA at 5:45 am and was in a line of 5 people (that's it).  One would certainly hope that all five could be accomidated.  No...not at this store.  They had THREE units for the whole store! I wonder how many the mgr put aside for his own needs.

The pathetic manager didn't have the guts to tell us standing in line, either---he left--as did the cashier. Low class behavior from low class people--lesson learned!  Please boycott this store!

What gets to me the dam sale item is still on its webpage as of 11/26/2010  4:43 pm maybe Kmart should teach its own people how to type kmart.com clcik on 2 day Sale!!!!!!!!!! Scroll down to pets. Then they could see it for themselves.
