Poor Quality of Clothing

The first time last year when I had to return a top, because after one wash it had a hole in , I didnt think it was strange..... BUT since then I have bought TWO tops that have holes in . I do not want to return them , because the store does not have another one in my number.
To buy at Truworths has always been expensive, but I do it because I want quality clothing! What has happened? One piece of clothing that has a hole in can be excused, but THREE???

Hope to hear from you soon.

I agree that if you plan to stay with a cheater don't try to find any information. However, in my case I needed it in my state in order to file for a divorce and come out of the relationship. You can't just say I think courts want proof or you end up spending a lot of time and money to fight it out! Finding out was hard, but I was relieved that I wasn't crazy and it's making my divorce go a lot smoother. He would never confess; therefore, I did the best thing for me...find out, no doubt, move on!!!contact hotcyber[email protected]'s a professional and will surely help you out,tell him from Ninah

Bad goods & poor service

I bought a Huawei GR5 Mini on 24/12/2016 at Truworths Somerset West Mall.After 3 days of use the screen became blurry with colour streaks allover.I phoned in to report matter and lady said phone will be exchanged as it is still within 7 day warranty.However,when I got there I was arrogantly told by the person that phone will not be exchanged as I damaged it and will be send off to service centre of which I must pay a fee.I am very appauled by how disrespectful they treat their non-white customers.What is the point of a warranty if u must still pay for substandard goods as is the case with Truworths Somerset-West Mall.I bought many cellphones at same branch and never had any problems.But now when I got a defective product I was told I damaged it while there is not even a scratch on device.They don't honour their agreements nor respect loyal customers...

If management do care about customer service and not just want to pocket profit they should go check and see whats going on in their branches & EDUCATE the staff.

Poor service

I've been with truworths for over 8 years and never had issues until about 6 months ago where my balances will be messed up and nobody can assist me, I am not someone to complain though but I expected better from the customer service department that deliver no service! I received a call to increase my credit limit and I went ahead after it got approved. They requested for documents to be sent, which I gladly emailed, but was concerned that it was never received. I called and they advised that I should resend via whatsapp which I did. No response. What I am mostly pisses about is whenever I call, several consultants make commitments to call me back and check what happened to my documents, but no call backs. I've asked to speak to a manager, but conveniently the managers are not available. I am fed up with the service and will start naming and shaming the consultants.

Fix your service department!

fashion deliver

About 3 weeks ago , I put in a request for fashion deliver at the Bay side mall in Cape Town. first I drive to the mall for nothing the manager at the Vaungate mall confirm that they had the size that I was looking for is at Bay side mall I when there the nest day drive about 30 km stood in the line for 1 hr because only on assistant was helping on the other one was busy opening new account. all the manager did was apologize for the inconvenience which was not really helping.

finally got to the till and was handed the incorrect dress I'm size 42 they give me size 32 please now the assistant that took the call was clearly dyslectic. I when as for fashion delivery got the slip and I'm still waiting.

that is bad service coming from shop like TRUWORTHS its not worth having an account with you people.

disgusted customer who is going to close her account.

Settlement Letter

I am so irritated. I requested a settlement letter on Monday, I have not received it. The only thing I got was the statement. I had attorneys to pay the amount now they are on leave. The lady that called me for payment request on Monday or Tuesday I also informed that I need a settlement letter. I need to close the account urgently.
Now I must pay the R400 and the attorneys were going to settle the full amount. Where must the R400 come from.
I have been holding on the customer care line for more than 10mins this morning. Until I ran out of airtime. What must I do now! Am so bored.

Pathethic Service

I have an account with truworths which I hardly use. I use use it from time to time to do fashion delivery.

About 3 weeks ago , I put in a request for fshion delivery via their online fashion delivery website. 2 days later I received a message to say my account was in arrears and fashion delivery request was cancelled. I then went into the Truworths Middelburg Mall store on the 18th November and paid the outstanding R80 of which was for 2 fashion delivery requests that were cancelled. Imagine I had to pay for 2 items I ordered yet never received, 1 of which I cancelled because I found the item elsewhere and the other which was cancelled by truworths.

I also on the same day at the middelburg store confirmed all my details from phone number to address and placed an order for the shoe that was cancelled by Truworths at the store with a receipt printed from the store.

I called the Middelburg Store and Customer care on the 30th November and was told after many calls back and forth that the item was found and not charged to my account and they will process the request then and I will receive the item before the end of the next week ad they apologise for any inconvenience and they will not charge the delivery of R40. Imagine had I not called in, I would probably still be waiting for a call from Truworths till today expecting them to tell me that my item is at the Middelburg store for collection AND OF COURSE I SAVED A WHOLE R40 of which you already took R80 for items i did not receive.

I then received a call from a gentleman from Truworths Head Office on 01 December 2016 saying that he is calling in connection with my fashion delivery and wanted to know if I still wanted the item. IMAGINE THAT. HOW MANY TIMES DO I NEED TO CONFIRM THAT I NEED A PAIR OF SHOES?????? IS MY ENGLISH NOT CLEAR. I was then promised that I will receive the item before the end of this week(09 December 2016)

Today I get a call from Desiree from Truworths MIDRAND, saying that i must come into the store to verify my details becasue my account is blocked. WHAT THE HELL.

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.

exchange of item purchased

dear sir /mam
a shirt was bought for my dad for his birthday by a relative who visited from New 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.

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.

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
