Shelf price changed at paying point

Good day,

I was at truworths on 12/05/16 at truworths clearwater mall at 18:45. I found a DH jacket that was on sale from R1599 to R109.90, i was told it was human error and that it won't be sold to me at that amount, but R1090.90 which i refused. This manager didn't bother to apologies on the stuff fault but rather told me nonsense and they started making remarks about Xhosa blood which they were referring to me

Now as we know you buy anything in a shop with the shelf price but this was not the story with me.

I took pictures of the jacket and asked them to keep it aside as i needed to investigate this thoroughly, i stood in the queue for long and for nothing and no remorse was shown for this.

I am a very good and loyal truworths customer but if you don't deal with this i will be closing down my account with you.

Regards,
Lettie

exchange of item purchased

dear sir /mam
a shirt was bought for my dad for his birthday by a relative who visited from New Zealand.it so happened that he received 2 of the same color. I asked the Pavilion branch where it was purchased from if I could just exchange for color but the request was denied by area manager Charmaine Moodley. yes I did not have the docket but all the tags were still attached to the shirt. surely you guys can check whether or not the item was purchased at your store and assist. it was not like we asked for a refund , we only wanted to exchange it for anther color. Truworths is one of the only store that gives us such a hard time when it comes to exchanges , WHY? do you think it is still possible for me to have this shirt exchanged? please let me know asap.
thanks

Shoe Attendant

This is by far the best Truworths in the country by far, but one person makes this whole place an unpleasant shopping experience. On 3 different occasions the lady working at the shoe department of the Vaal Mall Truworths, were too lazy to go check for shoes in the back. You can choose any shoe on the shelf, when you ask her for a size she answers you straight away NO. So my husband has chosen any shoe on the shelf to test her, and she still said no. So for a big Truworths like the one at the Vaal Mall they only have 1 size for all their shoes displayed. Why display shoes if you only have 1 size in the first place. Other stores the ladies will have the decency to go and check or double check for you in the back, but at vaal Mall the answer is NO FOR ALL SHOES ON THE FLOOR. What an embarrassing experience!!!

Amount Refund after robbery.

My girlfriend was robbed at gun point and asked for a pin for a Capitec Bank card. The criminals then ran and went to swipe for R4000 at Truworths using the Capitec Bank card and pin. I would like to know that Truworths will refund the amount back to the bank account as we have a case for this and this was not a legal transaction.

Exchange

Today I went to exchange in Queenstown Truworths Carthcart Street a belt and neck piece that were bought yesterday in Hemmingways East London Truworths,the neck piece was still intact nothing removed,the belt the tag was removed but not worn and I brought the tag with me.I requested a bigger size of the belt they did not have therefore opted to exchange back.I requested the manager of the shop as the assistant could not fully assist,the manager gave me attitude and requested one of the assistants to check the neck piece did not go with earrings as if I had stolen the earnings,I requested we call the head office he refused and stated I am the one with a complaint therefore I should call for myself.That is new to me because when ever I have a problem in the store or regarding my account in any store the call is made from there.That manager is undermining and unprofessional,please call him unto order and I expect an apology or I will close my account with emmidiate effect.

voucher thats no longer valid

Pethetic way of makling a profit on gift cards.I recieved a gift card and only used half of it when i used this card the staff member never said to me that it woud expire and that i needed to use it before a certain period of time.I havnt used the card as i didnt see anything that i liked and now when i wanted to use the card im told i cannot ive lost the available credit on the card as it has expires.Does thruworths real;ly not have any ethics when it comes to gift cards.So i can only imagine the amount of profit thruworths makes on these so called expired cards and maybe the retail ombudsman should be informed about your process.

Bad service

The store manager at your promenade storeTanya she has a very bad attitude as if she is doing me a favor by helping me . I bought my wife jewelry of which I was explained on the day of purchase that I can not return the earings but the bracelet and ring I could bring back if my wife was not happy .. A few days later I brought back the ring and bracelet as my wife noticed the items was broken the bracelet clip was broken and the ring was slightly bent ... She did not wear the items as I bought it as a present for her so she noticed the problems when I have it to her so I decided to take it back to the store and the manager Tanya was so unprofessional she spoke so loud as if we purposefully broke the items loud remarks in a full store so now it looks as if me and my wife were trying to pull one over on truworths and all I wanted was a replacement ... Tanya took the items and said she would phone me as she has to send it away for quality check .. Three weeks later still no phone call . I went to the store and enquired about the queries .. I spoke to another cashier who directed me to Tanya who again spoke extremely loud saying We phoned your wife (they do not have my wife's number) and we reversed the credit back into your account and she walked off without a explanation .. I am a paying customer at truworths and I don't need to be treated like a criminal when I go shopping . Please teach your managers about people skills .. This is unacceptable .

Constant phonecalls

I have been receiving regular phone calls from 08728544066. If I answer, it is the Truworths call centre asking my to press a key for this or another for that. Once I thought I had missed a genuine call and phoned back, only to find Ms Electronic Truworths again.

Please note that I do not shop at Truworths or any of its susidiaries and in furutre will make certain that I never do. I consider your calls to be an invasion of my privacy.

What I will do though is add Truworths to my case study list of pests who successfully chase customers away. I train sales and marketing in centres around SA.

Please don't let me hear from you agin. If I do, I will gladly put you on Face book and Hello Peter.

Terrible Customer Service

To whom it may concern


Please note that I have received the attached text message after numerous messages and taking numerous telephone calls. Please do not call me again. This is the first time that I have defaulted with payment because of a loss of a family member, as I had to pay for funeral costs and medical bills. Your call centre agents are bombarding me with texts and phone calls. I will ensure that this is paid as advised in my email below and I will close my account with you because you are certainly very ignorant and inconsiderate to your customers. I just lost my dad and I have to put up with all these calls and texts after advising you of the payment arrangement.

I will close my account. Please advise you call centre agent Charmaine and whoever else is really worrying me that I am very upset that she/they keeps calling me even after me sending you the correspondence about the payment arrangement.

I always purchase at Identity and always make payments on time. Unfortunately I will stop all further purchases from your store. I did not have any issues with the other stores that I called and emailed regarding my issue this month just Identity.

It's not easy losing a loved one and putting up with these calls and text and emails even after advising that I will make payment. I will also close my Truworths Account because of this! This is not how you treat a loyal customer who has a problem for just ONE month.


Kind regards

exchange

I'm very disappointed with the service I recived today at truworths mall@carnival. I revived a R750 skirt as a gift.Unfortunatly it was a size too small. I have been to lakeside mall, eastrand mall, trade route and lastly to mall@carnival looking for my sizee. What a dissapointment not one store had my size so I decided to look for something else only to be told by ur manager that I cannot do a SIMPLE exchange as the gift was not bought on my account (do keep in mind I have a reciept) . What ever happend to customer service? Truworths is the only company that gives customers such a difficult time. I personally would never shop there again and wouldn't recommend any1 of my friends either.



Very dissapointed

Legal Department

I paid my account in December'16 fully and I have been sending letters through fax and email in Jan'16 then finallyI was told that my name will be removed from ITC.

Today I receive a report from Credit Bureau that my account is still in 9 months errears and I called the legal department and I found this cold lady on the phone saying my letter wasn't attended to and that I should have followed up.

There was no apology or sign of regret and i was told the send the letter again to the very same email that I send in January'16.

It is very disturbing to require an assistance to someone who is not willing to assist

I want my name cleared that's all

APPROACH BY CALLERS ON OUTSTANDING BALANCE

I HAVE AN ACCOUNT WITH TRUWORTHS FOR OVER 23 YEARS NOW. WHAT I NOTICED WITH THEM IS THAT EVEN IF YOU ARE BEHIND WITH R50 THEY WILL CALL DAILY WITH A HORRIBLE APPROACH. I LOST MY SISTER IN FEBRUARY BUT HAVE BEEN PAYING MY ACCOUNT, IT WAS ONLY ONE MONTH WHICH I SKIPPED STILL TRYING TO CATCH UP WITH MY FINANCIAL STATUS. I GOT DAILY CALLS FROM RUDE LADIES CALLING ME DAY AND NIGHT AND EVEN ON MY OFFICE LANDLINE. I WILL UNFORTUNATELY NOT TALK TO PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY CAN TALK TO US CLIENTS AS THEY PLEASE JUST BECAUSE WE ARE OWING. I AM NOT OWING THEM BUT TRUWORTHS AND THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO TALK TO ME THE WAY THEY LIKE. PERHAPS TRUWORTHS SHOULD GET TIPS FROM WOOLWORTHS ON HOW THEY TRAIN THEIR STAFF WHEN CALLING CUSTOMERS WHO ARE BEHIND WITH THEIR PAYMENTS. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN LIKE THIS WITH TRUWORTHS' COLLECTIONS DEPARTMENT. I WILL PAY MY ACCOUNT BUT WILL NOT ANSWER TO ANY OF THE RUDE AND UNPROFESSIONAL PEOPLE WHO GOT JOBS BECAUSE SOME OF US ARE OWING BUT SEE THAT AS PLATFORM TO SHOUT AT US. IF THEY ARE GOOD ENOUGH WHY ARE THEY THERE DOING THAT KIND OF A JOB??
FOR ME BEING A LOYAL CUSTOMER TO TRUWORTHS OVER 23 YEARS MEANS NOTHING TO THEM, SOME OF THEM WERE NOT EVEN BORN WHEN I OPENED THAT ACCOUNT AND THEY THINK THEY CAN HARASS ME ON MY PHONES??? SORRY I WILL NOT ALLOW THAT.

Tygervalley Lack of Service

On 04/06/2016 I did a customer request at Truworths Tygervalley and I still have not received any communication from the store. On 06/08/2016 I went for the 2nd time to enquire about the request, only then I was enformed a mistake accured and the courier company would deliver the next week. Bianca ( sales ass) assured me they would contact me. I even left my email address with her. Up unto this day I have heard nothing from Truworths. This disregard for customer service is extremely upsetting. I wont go in store again to waist my time there.

Thanks

Refusal of return

I was trying to return a pair of shoes back to the store where I bought it from and they refused saying the shoe has been worn, I was returning the shoe on basis of quality I cant believe that a shoe only worn twice already has the sole being almost non-existent, I bought the shoes believing that this was a quality product I am so upset that they refuse to take them back. You can contact me on 0749601600 TJ Monama
