"EUCALYPTUS FOLDING ARMLESS CHAIR - This chair looks great once put together, but the assembly of this chair is a nightmare! There is so little clearance between the pieces of wood that putting the four washers in place during the assembly took two people and over an hour for each chair...and I had four chairs to assemble. If I had known how difficult, frustrating, and time consuming the assembly would be, I never would have purchased this product. The matching table was ready to go. Why on earth would the manufacturer not sell the chairs the same way?"

"My wife ordered the Bedrocks Lawn Border System for a flower bed border. Delivery was within five days of the order, but the package was not as represented in the catalog: sufficient stakes needed to fill the holes and hold the border in place were not included in the package. This makes the Bedrocks System unstable and unsightly. I am very disappointed in this purchase."

"I will never order from Improvements Catalog again!!! I ordered a table cloth and it was the wrong size. I decided to return it for a refund. They sent a label that you have to use to return it. My tablecloth was $16.19 and my shipping was $7.95, which is a total of $24.14. They charged $8.95 for returning it. They refunded me only $7.24! Also, I had to pay $3.17 for a bubble mailer to ship it back. I always purchase thing online and I never had a problem with any other online stores. I am very disappointed!!!"

"I ordered several different tinsel lighted outdoor decorations in July. Stupidly, I did not carefully inspect them until we started putting them together yesterday in preparation of putting them up day after Thanksgiving.
I ordered a Bambi and Thumper display as well as some Cardinals. Although I had to glue the ears, Bambi came with directions, the required pieces needed to put it together and stake it to the ground. Thumper on the other hand, looked like it had been sent back used to Improvements and they just resold it. It was worn with holes in it, had no directions, nothing to hold it together, and no stakes to hold it to the ground.
The cardinals are ripped along the seams and need to be completely resewn, the wings are detached and there is no way to attach them to the body of the bird.
I am so disappointed and angry. Angry at Improvements for passing off defective, obviously used merchandise, and mad at myself for not inspecting them thoroughly as soon as they arrived. It is too late to return them so I've thrown a lot of money away. Still have a couple more displays to put together. Have my fingers crossed that they will be in decent shape with all of the parts.Do not remember exact order dates.

***I don't know how to comment on the response to my review by Improvements Catalog, so I am just adding to this original review. I just want to say that I was very happily surprised to hear from Improvements and they were very concerned that I was not satisfied with my purchase. Although, it'd been months since the original purchase, they offered to discount my purchase or accept them as a return and reimburse the payment. I chose the discount because I'd already repaired the items myself, and put them out in the yard.
Improvements promptly credited my discount. I was very impressed at how quickly they responded to my review and offered solutions. I will have no reservations about ordering through Improvements again now that I know if something is wrong, they want to make it right. Excellent customer service!

“We’re very happy to report that we were able to resolve this customer’s issue to her satisfaction. As happens with every retailer from time to time, occasionally, despite our best efforts, a customer will receive defective merchandise. We called her, apologized for her experience with the product and gave her the option of replacing it or keeping it at a discounted price. She elected to keep it and we made the agreed upon price adjustment reflecting this. She commented that she was surprised that a company actually cared; we’re surprised there are companies that don’t.
If anyone else ever has a negative experience with an Improvements product, please, first, let us know there’s a problem and give us a chance to resolve it before publishing a complaint. We stand behind our products, our service, and our commitment to the satisfaction of our customers. Thanks!

And thank you Texanna33 for taking the trouble to post the very nice follow up to your original review!
We're very glad we were able to resolve your issue and, again, apologize for the inconvenience.”

I placed an order for 5 lights. 3 were defective. They issued a credit for those three and sent me three new ones (at a charge, of course). When those arrived none of them worked. I called for RA #s and sent them ALL back. I was assured I would receive a FULL refund. After several calls and a lot of time on the phone, I still have not received a refund. I have been given various excuses as to why. Different excuse every time I call.
I will say the lights looked nice - too bad they didn't work. So I guess if you want to order something that has no function other than looking pretty, order away. But, I wouldn't.

"Ordered 3 items from them. Had a problem with only one- providence shoe and boot bench. Assembling it was a bit harder than any other shelf ive ever assembled because of the way the pieces locked into each other but I managed. However because the entire back piece of the bench did not fit all the way in, the entire bench
has an unsightly gap on the bottom and on the
top. I took the entire unit apart twice and put it
together three times to try and tighten the pieces
as much as possible but to no avail. Emailed improvcatalog and basically had no reply. Called them and was offered either $25 off or return the unit for a full refund. Was hugely disappointed with the amount of work and time it took when i paid for a new piece of unit. Instead i got a lemon and now i get to decide on the less crappier of the two alternatives im left with.

"Ordered a steamer chair cushion from Improvements.com. The cushion arrived in good condition and on time. Didnt have any issues with my order. Cushions were good quality and exactly as advertised!"

"improvementscatalog.com: I received the Cabidor Behind Door Storage (7 shelf) and was extremely disappointed. The unit seems sturdy however it was damaged. On the solid portion that would face everyone, there was an 8"x 3.5" area that was marred. On the top of the same side, there is also a 3" area of a flawed finish. On the very top portion that has the shelves, there is an indented half inch scar that was painted over. It is as if someone damaged it then painted over it without trying to fill it. This is just to the point of where I unwrapped it, only half way. I called customer service; Nicole assisted. I was not pleased with her customer service skills either. She was focused on defending the item and without giving me time to speak she went into great detail on the number attempts for the item to be picked up. She could have saved both of time by just letting me tell her it would be ready for pick up the next morning. She stated that it's a popular item and that this is an uncommon problem. It would be April 20th before another could be shipped. Unacceptable as I had to wait extra weeks for this one. Either Improvements does not quality check items before shipping or they have no qualms about shipping imperfect products. An item of this size and price should be flawless. It was ordered 2/21 with an original availability date of March 13 then shipping was pushed back.; received 4/2; returned for a full refund on 4/3. I am happy that they gave me a full refund, including shipping and I did not have to pay for the return shipping cost. Overall, this was a huge disappointment and a much larger inconvenience!!"

"I will never use Improvements.com again and will tell all of my friends and family, etc. about my bad and costly experience with them.
I ordered a pet protector for my sofa and chair and it was impossible to put on and fit as the arms hung down to the floor and other parts hung over as well. Not at all as depicted in the catalog. Called and was told to return for refund.

It cost over $93.00, $13.95 for shipping (high I thought).

They deducted the S&H PLUS $8.95 TWICE!!!

It took a lot of calling and writing to get someone to admit that I should have been charged $8.95 only once and the credited me as such.

When I asked why was I charged $8.95 at all, I was told it was because I used their return label (What else was I to do when they include it?)

The bottom line is that I spent over $22.00 on items that were very misleading.

Beware before you use them.z1107393-00011

"I ordered several items, didn't like the color of one, returned that item, reordered and received exactly what I wanted. It was 1/4 the price of anything like it that I had found elsewhere. I got it through one of those BradsDeals sites or something and everything worked exactly the way it should. It was a fabulous deal and I've watched their site for similar deals. I'd buy from them again in a flash."

"Unlike many companies that provide a return label. I found returning something to these people a huge hassle. I wound up paying almost as much for the ups charges as it cost for the item. I will not be using them again.

When I called them orginally to find out how to send it back, the customer service person said just say you are refusing to accept the item, but UPS refused to accept that and made me pay. I have sent things back to other companies and never had this problem.
