First and last experience with Lowes.

First and last experience with Lowes. To the CEO, Management, Stockholders, institutional investors and or parent company, et al., of Lowes. This is an open letter to express my (and probably many others) dismay at the inept organizational procedures and customer service exhibited over the last several weeks with regard to a simple order, placed via the company (Lowes) website, paid in full, with a delivery date promised and set certain. Not only was the item never shipped, but it had not, as yet, even been produced by the manufacturer a week after the promised delivery date! (This qualifies for Government work!) This could have been an anomaly, so I gave it the benefit of the doubt. I called customer service. I was told that they would have to contact the vendor. They don’t stock this particular item… yet, they sell it as though they do, because the website clearly stated, “In stock”. Customer service seemed a little confused and told me they would call me back with answers. The next call I received notified me that they could not reach said vender and could not give me any info and would call me later... The next call never came. I called again and got a different customer service representative who, after retracing customer service representative number one, informed me that my order had not, as yet, been manufactured. Again, this would’ve just been a slight annoyance, but since this item was for a remote mountain cabin, the promised set certain delivery date was critical because I had to make a special trip to the cabin the day of delivery. Get the picture. So far I wasted one trip. So, I was told by representative number two that the item would be completed by the Manufacturer and shipping on Friday the 14th, of June; and that I would be called with a tracking number so I my coordinate with said delivery and be there for this now elusive event! You guessed it, no call. So I figured I’d turn my frustration into a bit of embarrassment for the people at the top for not managing the people that are supposed to make customers at least feel that they are somewhat an important part of the equation… LIKE BUYING THEIR PRODUCTS! The most insulting part of this scenario is the offer made by customer service representative number two. She offered a whopping 10% discount on my next purchase. [If] I had a company (which I do) and one of my customers had a similar experience with their first purchase, I would take this cluster as an opportunity to make this a public relations gold mine. Instead of a monument to bad customer service, this letter would have been a testimonial as to the incredible lengths I went through to make this customer feel special and actually give them the item ordered (or a better one, without charge) and show all future first time buyers that we will go to extreme lengths (repetition mine) to deliver on our promise(s) (opposite of breach) and I’m sure this would contribute to the steady growth and success of said company. Heck, I may have even delivered it myself! Yours truly, President and CEO, Trans Pacific Transportation, Inc

Lowes in Fairbanks, Alaska - Masterforge grill that kicks out on me

This grill, my first big step into gas grilling (purchased at Lowes), randomly decides it doesn't want to work--either not at all, or only at an extremely low setting ("Warm"). Tonight it won't start at all. Very disappointing. It randomly works fine again when it feels like it. Haven't used it much, would like to use it more, but it's totally UNRELIABLE. Sad. I have to enter additional words, so I'll type sadly for a while...sad, sad, bad Masterforge, bad Lowes! Makes me sorry that I switched from charcoal- everyone said that gas was better but it looks like they were wrong.

Lowes Troy Bilt

We bought ours in July 2012 used it only five times before the cold weather came thru. We tried to use it in May 2013 and it would not stay on. We were told it would not be covered under warranty yet the manufacturer warranty covers two years. When we took it for maintenance Lowe's would not give us the number to where it was sent out. They supposedly fixed it and charged us a fee for doing nothing to it since it did not work. We are sending our expenses to Troy Bilt to reimburse us. We also had to take it back cause it was not fixed proeprly, it's still not tuirning on and Lowe's is now going to replace it.

Lowes in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania - Troy-bilt walk behind mower

We bought and returned TWO Troy-bilt self-propelled mowers within the past month (May/June 2013). Both were a piece of ***. The first one has issues with and engine that missed. I was told by Lowes tech to try a new spark plug. We did that. Engine still missed from day one. So we returned it. Then went with a hi-wheel self-propelled model. It was supposed to be front wheel drive. In other words both front wheels should be pulling. No way. Only one wheel turned. What a piece of ***. We called tech same day it was bought and they said we could either bring it back for repair or return it!!! You should have to return a new product the same day for repair. Why can't Troy-bilt assure that their product works the way it should?? And why does Lowes continue to sell these mowers when they have issues? There were several mowers sitting outside the store that apparently were repaired and returned for resale. Nearly all had drive issues.

Lowes - Whirlpool Frig 3yrs old, Compressor shot!

Exactly 3 yrs old, side by side Whirlpool, Compressor is done, given estimate of $700 to replace, Whirlpool had a 1 yr warrantly, guess they didn't have much faith in their product. Everything you buy now is junk, and extended warranties are very expensive insurance for the consumer. Manufacturers should stand behind their product! (Bought from Lowes)and they should not carry brands that are not reliable. A refrigerator should be expected to last 12 yrs minimum but much longer than that in the past. Quality control is a thing of the past I guess, no wonder, as American companies no longer manufacture in America!

It seems every time I go into the Terre Haute Lowes store there's not one employee that wants to help, sorry, other then the paint area, they're good. The people in the lumber department are rude, when you want boards cut, they scatter like roaches, some even tell you...

Lowes - Vetran Discount Discontiued

Lowe's previously offered a 10% discount to military veterans and the cashier would frequently say "Thank you for your service." As of June 10, 2013 they have discontinued this discount and the flyer states "Sorry for any inconvenience." I have always been a loyal Lowe's customer. I'll have to rethink that in view of their attitude toward those who have served our country. This is particularly troubling in view of their huge profit margin an in my opinion, the deteriorating quality of some of their products. Lowes paint is a good example. I painted a wall with their Signature (top of the line paint) and returned it after three coats failed to cover. Home Depot is looking better and better. I hope the public responds to this with their pocket book.
