"A few weeks ago I decided to purchase a free standing pantry unit for my kitchen. In browsing the internet I came across Kitchensource.com and was immediately drawn to them because they prominently advertised “? Free Shipping”, “? No Restocking Fees”, and “? Easy Returns”. It seemed like the kind of company I would like to do business with. I was able to find, on the Kitchensource site, what appeared to be exactly what I was looking for. The item was labeled “Omega National Chef’s Double Pantry System” and a full color picture showed a pantry cabinet with doors, shelves mounted on the cabinet doors and swing-out shelves in the center of the unit. It looked like just what I was looking for so I ordered the upper &amp; lower units for a total of $736.20. When the units arrived I wanted to inspect the contents but the driver refused and he left the 2 boxes on the street outside my house. When I opened the boxes I discovered that there were no cabinet parts or doors. The boxes only contained shelving units. When I called Kitchensource I was told that their ad said that the cabinet and doors were not included. I looked at the ad and about half way down the page, as a bullet point among all the other descriptive bullet points, it did say “Cabinet and doors not included”. This is deceptive advertising. The photo shows a complete cabinet. If the cabinet &amp; doors are not included, that statement should be shown on or right next to the photo to make it clear that the photo does not accurately show what they are selling. I told them that I wanted to return the item. They informed me that there would be a 15% restocking fee and I would be charged for their shipping, contrary to the statement on their home page. When I complained, they told me to look at the fine print in their return policy which is a link way down at the bottom of the page. There is nothing near the “? Free Shipping”, “? No Restocking Fees”, and “? Easy Returns” policy statements on their home page that says that there are any exceptions to those policies. When I clicked on the Return Policy link it does say that, if an item is undamaged it may be returned for a refund less a 15% deduction [i.e. restocking fee] and less the initial shipping charges incurred, contrary to the beneficial policies shown on their home page. I don’t know about anyone else, but I do a lot of shopping on the internet and don’t have the time to read through all the fine print on a web page’s Terms and Conditions before I buy something. I still decided to return the item and asked how much the initial shipping charge would be. I was told that it would be $174.30. The restocking fee was $110.43. I shipped the 2 packages back to them exactly as I received them. I used FedEx and shipped them with insurance for the full value and with full tracking with a required signature on delivery. FedEx charged me $78.40 which is approximately 2 ½ times less than they say it cost them to ship the packages to me. Now, either these people are stupid for spending 2 ½ times what FedEx would charge them to ship or, as I suspect, this is just one giant rip-off. I received an email from FedEx that the packages were delivered to them on Jan. 30th. 12 days later I still hadn’t heard from them that they received the packages and were processing my refund so I called them. Without an apology for the delay, I was told that my refund would be issued that day. Two days later I finally received an email that a credit was issued by them to my credit card."
"Ordered stools and a table from the website. Shipping was free and way easier than transport via a trailer or van. I am a single mother and can’t carry much, the delivery was so kind to carry the packages into my living room. All in all a perfect shopping experience."
"I ordered a Julien stainless steel sink and sink grid from Kitchensource. Their price and selection were great, and the customer service reps I spoke with while shopping were professional and helpful. When the sink arrived, it was scratched, so I took pictures and sent them. When the plumber arrived, we went ahead and installed the sink, although we had been hoping to get one that was not scratched. However, to compensate us, Kitchensource adjusted our bill and compensated us very fairly for the damage. I would definitely recommend the company and will shop here again!"
"The Brabantia rotary clothes -line was an excellent quality choice. It seems very sturdy and durable. It arrived in 3 days. My only disappointment was that it did not come with a cover, nor could I find one for purchase on the website."
"Thus far we've encountered no difficulties. The product ordered, Barbantia trash bags, arrived today."
" material received very quickly. very satisfied with the professionalism of kitchen source"
"It was awesome always on top of their game"
"There was a problem in that the items that were on the web site were no longer carried by manafacturer so I had to cancel my order for those and other pieces."
"The delivery was very quick, the package was very well packed and merchandise in excellent shape. The only thing I had issue with was when I looked up the delivery status the information said, 'processing order'. It was delivered the next day and I wasn't home. "
"The service is exceptional and everything arrived when scheduled, and as described. I will certainly work with them again as the service agent was knowledgable and went the extra mile to find items that were comparable to what we were looking for but out of stock."
"I was impressed with how easy it was to order and how fast my probuct came!"
"I paid $45 dollars ($12 of which was for shipping) for a garbage can just because it is the only garbage can that will fit in my cupboard. What a ridiculous amount of money for a garbage can, and what an extraordinary amount of money for shipping. On the same evening I ordered two (2) bedside tables and $5 in shipping. $12 for shipping a garbage can?!?!?!?! Come on?!?!?!"
"I got exactly what I ordered, good delivery time, no problems"
"great! Best customer service i have experienced with online purchases"
"The header of your email asked- Did KitchenSource.com / Kitchen Accessories Unlimited Deliver?Well no... no they haven't. At least not yet anyway. I'm still waiting.I received just one email acknowledging my order. It has been thirteen days and apparently my order has not even shipped yet.Next time I'll find what I want at a brick and mortar or order from Amazon. At least Amazon keeps you informed and acts like they appreciate your business."
