Poor service

I have never been so disappointed or angry with service in my life! I ordered a custom shade but sales mgr never followed up with me despite my numerous phone messages, speaking to other mgrs, and even trying to get to speak to him in the store -- he was always "in meetings." And all t his after a $1200 order of lamps that arrived twice broken and never when they were promised!

I'd like to think that after the shower scene in Hitchcock's "Psycho"the curtain was replaced by going to Gracious Home.(Sorry...Corny.)In any case,this place has such a selection of virtually everything for the bath.Indeed for the entire home.And what a selection!.I spent several minutes attempting to decide which bathscale to purchase.The talking one, the digital one,the fancy stainless steel one.I decided,wisely on the most reasonable one.(Their variety ranged in price from 0ver $100.00 to $19.95) But there is more to Gracious Home. A helpful staff who knows their stuff.And there is lots of stuff for sure,including:Bath..Bedding.Cleaning.Closet.Decorative Accessories.Decorative Hardware.Electronics.Gardening Supplies.Hardware.Housewares.Interior Design,Lighting & Electrical Supplies.Major Appliances.Seasonal Appliances.Party Supplies.Stationery.You can even purchase a pad that reduces the noise of the rain on your air conditioner.Now, all I need is a pad that reduces the noise of the garbage trucks at 5 am!!.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
