Just before I got married, my (now) wife and I ordered 2 leather couches from Coricraft Sandton. I must say, service was excellent. The staff phoned when the furniture was ready, and they delivered it fine, with no damage, and as on time as you can possibly get in South Africa.
Six months later, and we spotted a matching display unit and desk on the floor in the shop. In my personal opinion, they are a stylish combination, and I am proud that we eventually bought them. Even though it took 8 months to eventually receive. But, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me start at the beginning.
We walked into the Coricraft Sandton store, and noticed the 2 pieces of furniture. Unfortunately, the desk had a “SOLD” sign on. So we asked the lady on the floor if she could find out if they had any more stock in the warehouse. She said she would check, and phone us back during the week. 2 weeks later, and no phone call.
So, we went back to the store, and spoke to the manager. He said he would follow up with the staff member, and ensure she phoned us by Tuesday. Saturday came round, and STILL no phone call. So, we phoned the manager. This time he said he would phone us back during the week.
Do I feel like a CLOWN for believing him?!? He still hasn’t phoned. 10 months later!
