I placed an order mid0Feb for an early March birthday present. When the order hadn't arrived within 2 weeks I went searching for the status and found that it had been cancelled.
Inexplicably cancelled. I placed a second order on March 2, got confirmation that the order would arrive in the store in 4-7 business days and apologized to my husband for the late arrival of his birthday gift. Today, 9 business days later I've checked status and it still shows as in process/shipped. I called customer service to inquire and was told it would take 4-7 business days from the time the order was shipped and in this case, the product didn't ship for 7 business days after the order was placed.
She tried to explain that they "had to find the item in the warehouse". This is ridiculous. I order regularly from DSW, Macy's and Nordstrom and have never experienced delays (or service like this). In the world of Amazon Prime's 2 day shipping and stellar service, it's not wonder major retailers are closing their doors.
time to step up your game or get out!
