Have you ever walked into a furniture store looking to see if there’s anything that will suit your house? With a lot of people moving into town-house complexes, this can also mean searching furniture stores for furniture that will just plain FIT in your house. Well, that was the one thing we did when we walked into Coricraft Morningside the first time.
We noticed a nice set of dining room chairs that we thought would look great in our as-yet unfurnished dining room. Unfortunately, I’m not always the prepared type, so I did not have the exact measurements of our dining room, so just buying 6 or 8 chairs can become quite risky if you’re buying without careful thought. Unfortunately for us, the lady in the store was quite eager to make a sale. Why UNFORTUNATELY?! Well, the conversation went a little like this:
Sales Assistant (SA): Hi, can I help you
Us: No thanks, we’re just looking
SA: I see you’re looking at these chairs. Do you like them
Us: Yes we do.
SA: Would you like to buy them?
Us: Not yet thanks. We’re still deciding, and we’re not sure how many we can get.
SA: Well, they’re on sale, and you should buy them now while we have stock
Us: Thanks, but we’ll discuss it.
SA: Ok, but remember, we might not have them in stock soon
Us: Ok. thanks. We’ll go home and decide.
SA: But they might sell out.
Us: Yes. But we need to make sure.
SA: Ok, I’ll be over there if you need me, but like I said, they might sell out this week.
Us (to each other): QUICK. Get out while we’re still alive…
Ok, the last line I just made up, but it might have been close to something like that. Anyway, that sales pitch might be some people’s cup of tea, but it DEFINITELY is not ours… It might not sound so bad written down, but when you’re discussing whether you can afford something, and whether they’re really worth their price, and whether you can actually take them, the LAST thing you need is such “dedicated” Coricraft Customer Service.
But wait, there’s more!
