Why are customers allowed to bring large dogs into the store? In the past 2 days I have visited 2 different Home Depot stores, one in Woodbridge, Virginia and the other in Springfield, Virginia. The store in Springfield allowed a man to bring in a large Doberman Pinscher and the store in Woodbridge allowed a man to bring in a large German Shepherd - neither were service dogs. Is this your policy to allow large dogs in your store that could possibly cause harm to your customers? I am not a dog lover, actually I am afraid of dogs and I should not be subjected to be afraid while shopping. If this was a Pet Smart Store, I would understand but it isn't and I ask you to please reframe from allowing customers to bring in pets. If you continue this policy, please let me know and I will take my business elsewhere.
This is a second hand complaint that I hope you take seriously. I was on Facebook today and read a post about the Home Depot manager at E Spokane # 4714 in Spokane Valley, WA 99212. The person that posted this was taking up for our military. All Home Depot stores should provide discounts to our military and the fact that this manager did not is very disappointing to me. My father served in WWII and was in the reserves so you can understand why I would be upset at the very hint of disrespect to a veteran. Please reply to me and let me know the status of this issue. I eagerly await your reply.
I am writing with an inventory complaint at our local HD in Johnstown, PA. We always buy at HD. We started a patio with paver SKU#524-290. We purchased approx. 400 to start. When my husband went for another 200, (your inventory was showing 350+/- there was only 55? After many questions and looking for these pavers that were showing "in stock" an associate finally figured out that one of the cashiers put in the wrong SKU for a purchase of these pavers.
They used a SKU for red pavers therefore showing that the red/charcoal were available. I can't tell you how many times I've called/stopped regarding this product. We actually had to make two different trips to your associate stores out of our area (Altoona & Greensburg) to purchase more. Mind you these stores are not a hop, skip & a jump from here. They are approx. 1Hr. away from our home. We had no choice. We needed them. This not only cost us our time but gas money & mileage on our vehicle. This all began last Tuesday, the 18th and our store still cannot give us a date of when the pavers will be arriving let alone when and if they were ordered and this is over a week later. Your input on this matter is appreciated.
I would like to report a complaint from Store # 4714 E. Spokane. 5617 E. Sprague Avenue, Spokane Valley, WA 99212. I apparently have been given information that recently a veteran came to this store and made a purchase. When he asked the cashier if he was eligible for a veteran's discount he was denied. I would like a response in writing and on Facebook from this store's manager and from the CEO, Craig A. Menear about the current store policy that is in place and that was in place about giving a discount to our military families and veterans? I hope to hear back from you soon.
Takes 5 weeks to get a storm door installed. The level of service I received by you is at an all time low. The door needs to be measured before the install (takes about 2 weeks for someone to measure). Then the store says the technician measured the wrong door (takes another week) to remeasure. Takes another 6 days for someone to call me to let me know that the measurements are in and that someone would contact me to setup installation. I called the Bustelton Store in Philadelphia yesterday to speak with a manager who assured me someone from the install dept. would call to schedule an appointment. The install dept. called last night at 5:30 PM to inform me the next available time to install is another 2 weeks. Home Depot this is awful customer service. I will be returning everything I purchased and never shop here again. I'll make certain to tell my story to other people in a similar situation.
I have been rebuilding my home since the flood of 2014, I'm retired and on Social Security so the military discount I get really helps. I was at the Home Depot today, ( 7-27- 15) at about 11:30 am. I was purchasing over $100.00 worth of supplies. When I showed the cashier my military ID, she told me they don't do military discounts anymore, I told her she was wrong because I was just there the day before and purchased dry wall and supplies and received my discount.
She then called her supervisor, a big black lady showed up as her supervisor and started waving a bunch of papers at me saying they never do military discounts only on the 4th of July, I told her I was just there the other day and I have been getting my military discounts for the past year, she very loudly told me I was wrong and became very argumentative. It was very embarrassing because other customers were behind me, so I left everything there and went to Lowes. Apparently your employees and supervisor at that store don't know your company polices.
We ordered a countertop and backsplash from your store in Altoona,Pa. From the very beginning there were issues. First we were mislead about the countertop we wanted. When the person came to measure he told us that particular countertop would be pieced and I wanted one piece. We had to go back to the store ( which is 50 mins. from our house ) and order a solid wood one. When they came to measure for that one, we were told it would be about 3 weeks. About June 1 should have been the time. We didn't hear from anyone so I called the store and was told that the people they had to install it was under new management. We kept calling to find out when it was going to be installed and we were told that we would be put on the top priority list.
When the day finally came that the installation was going to happen, the installer only had the countertop and not backsplash. They were 4 hours away and I couldn't believe that they would not have checked the goods before they left the shop. We were told it would be a while before they could come back and install it. All this time, my kitchen was tore apart waiting for the complete installation of the countertop; I told L.E. Smith, the installation people, that this was unacceptable and I wanted it by the end of the week. They called and said they would be able to do it, A different installer brought the backsplash and when he came, again hours away from our location, he didn't have any caulking with him. What he had was dried up.
My husband had to take him to our local hardware store to get some. When I came home from work, the backsplash was not flat, it looked like there were gaps all around. I called and told them I was not happy and was told that the installer said it was a good job. I asked for someone to come look at it and they sent someone. I was told this was their best man (from L.E.Smith's) It was bad and Rick told me he would order another backsplash and fix it right. He was supposed to come July 1 or 2 and said he would come later in afternoon so I would be here, and that he would be the one putting it in. We got a message when we were out of town that they would be installing it on June 29. I was not home when it was installed, my husband was.
When I got home from work, I noticed right away that they damaged the drywall in 3 different places and that they did not clean the caulking off the countertop, it looked awful. My husband and I had an argument about it, and HE fixed the drywall and repainted and went to home depot to BUY some cleaner to clean the countertop. I was and I am still furious with him. He called home depot and told them of the problems and it was decided that they would give us $150,00. I told them to keep the money.
This is not about money. I am very unhappy and dissatisfied with the whole experience and just want you to know how unhappy and how frustrating this was for me. My husband and I are still not speaking and I know you don't care about that, but I want you to know how a simple countertop installation could be so messed up. I will not be using home depot for any more home projects. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions for me.
Ordered blinds (Living room and kitchen) in March with an install date of May 5th. On May 5th, installer is missing some parts for the kitchen blinds & has to re-order these pieces. The parts arrive 2 weeks later & install date of May 21st. On May 21st, the installer has the necessary parts for completion of one window however the wrong color wand was shipped for the other window. I was promised the correct wand would be ordered & sent directly to our home in a few days. I have made several calls with absolutely no results.
I have been more than patient. I received a message yesterday and returned a call to Rockwood & was told the person that called is not in today. I then called to our local HD store & spoke to someone in the blind dept. who said they would call Rockwood & call be back. A rep. from Rockwood called & did not know the color of the wand. I advised it is the same color as the other window and matches what I ordered. I was then asked to take a picture of it and send to them? Unacceptable!
I purchased a Samsung washing machine and the extended 3 year warranty. The washer is barely 2 years old and it broke. I contacted the warranty dept. and was then referred to Solar for the repair. Well, after scheduling a service call, which took 6 days for them to actually come out to my home, I learned they had to order a part. Now I am waiting for the part to come in. This is completely ridiculous. The washer is still not fixed and I have to wait another 6 days.
I seriously doubt I will ever purchase another appliance from Home Depot again. The service warranty is a Joke!! But the laugh is on the customer. I will never recommend to anyone the use of Home Depot appliances. As I write this letter, I am still without a washing machine, and I am sure there will be some other excuse from Solar again next week.
Horrible service by Solar, and I am frustrated totally with Home Depot's input, or lack thereof, since I have called several times regarding this matter.
If I could give them zero stars I would!
I ordered an electric dryer not realizing I needed a gas dryer. No biggie, when the dryer came I denied the delivery as instructed and called to order the gas dryer. I was assured by the sales representative that my card would not be charged for the electric dryer because it had not been "delivered." Fine, yes let's order the right one if you are sure I will not be charged twice. "No worries, if it does get charged, by the time the new charge is due to be deducted, your money for the electric dryer will be refunded automatically." Ok I ordered it.
Fast forward a week, check my account and I have bounced items, bank charges and a negative balance. Sure enough Home Depot charged me for both dryers. Called them and was told to wait 3 - 5 business days and the money would be refunded. On the 7th business day I call and was told, "We have to wait for the third-party vendor to refund us our money before we can refund your money." WHATTT????!!! What happened to the 3 - 5 business days, and why do I have to wait for a third party, I didn't pay a third party I paid Home Depot.
Needless to say, it is supposed to take another 3 - 5 business days to get my "refund." In the meantime, my account is in the negative with no end in sight, my bank can't do a thing until Home Depot refunds my account and all I keep getting from Home Depot is, Sorry. I will never make a big purchase with Home Depot, and I have made it my mission to tell everyone I know how horrible this company treats people!!
On 5-8-15 I went to the Home Depot in Salem Or (3021 Cherry Ave) to buy some outside plants. They were advertised for $7.88. When I looked at them they were too small for what I wanted to do. There was a display that had the flowers I wanted but were not a hanging basket. I have baskets and decided to get the plants and make my own baskets. The sign on the display said "marked down" from $9.88 to $2.88. Great deal, so I got four of them.
When I got home and checked the bill I was surprised to find out they were really $7.88 ea. I went back to the store and ask what happened to 2.88 The lady took me to the display and showed me the sign. I ask her so what it says 2.88. She informed me I was reading it wrong that they are 7.88 but the sign does look like 2.88. I am pissed and might shred my card and start shopping at LOWES. Not happy at all with you guys!
Had bought Ridgid Pressure washer model RD 80971 with an extended warranty. Ridgid gives a 3 year warranty plus the extended 2 years. Pressure washer pump stopped producing high pressure on 05/06/2015, so I called and they said the warranty was expired. The machine was bought on 12/19/2010 and that is only 4&1/2 years old. I faxed papers to you and I was told I would here IF they would repair on 05/13/2015. Then you would set up a repair date.
I waisted my money on this plan and expect my money back. I am having it fixed because I need to finish around the house before I go on Vacation. I DON'T have a month to waist on waiting for you to repair it. I expect a response and then will decide to cancel my credit card and have any future dealings with HD.
I purchased a new Fridgedaire Range which was delivered today soon after lunch. At the time of purchase I was told that a new appliance cord was required for installation of a new range. I paid for the new cord ($22) at that time and it was to be delivered with the range.
Luckily, my kitchen wasn't ready for the installation and they left it for my remodeling guy to install. I went to check on the cord and found that I did not have a new cord but my old one was put on the new range. I would have never have discovered this if it had been installed. Feeling ripped-off, I called the appliance department of the Home Depot. I was informed that the new cord was needed or the warranty would be invalid. They said they could have a new one delivered on Friday. I said no way, it must be here today (Monday) or I would report a fraud. A subsequent return call revealed that a new cord would be delivered to me today. It was also revealed that the delivery person stated that he did not have a new cord on the truck and therefore installed my old one.
Why didn't he tell me that that was what he did? If this would void my warranty, why not say that someone would deliver the correct cord? OR - Why not tell me that I would get a credit for the undelivered new cord? He knew that it was on the delivery slip. He admitted to the salesperson that he know that I was to get it.
Later, the delivery guy called and said that he was on the way with the cord. Also, said that old cord use did not void the warranty. Still waiting for delivery person - wonder where he got the new cord from? He knows that I am pissed. He does not know that I will have a recorder recording every word that he says.
So, who is lying, Home Depot or delivery guy? He also said that Home Depot always tells customers that they must buy the new cord - but is is not needed. Is this an ongoing FRAUD? FRAUD by Home Depot and FRAUD facilitated by delivery people? Do they split the take?
I worked for HICKMAN for assembly of gas grills at the Dearborn Heights and Southgate, Michigan HOME DEPOT locations and I have never been paid. Many phone calls have been placed, time submitted as stated to do, and I would like to know how to proceed with filing a complaint. My own personal Tools were taken by workers, I was told that a check was in the mail almost a month ago. Has anyone else had this problem??
On 11/08/2013 i purchased two frigidaire wall ovens. Today 4/22/2015 i turned the lower oven on and it is making a loud noise. I called the eldorado home depot and explained to one of the sales reps what was happening. She looked up information told me i had an extended contract that would cover repaires. I called 800-466-3337 and was transferred to a trouble shooter named sandy she asked me if i could turn off the breaker to the oven and i told her i could not because i did not know which breaker it is. I told her my husband was not home to assist me she asked me if could wait until he comes home and he turns off the breaker i told her no.
She then said to me that if a service person comes and if the breaker reset the oven i would have to pay for the service. I told her i did not agree because i had an extended warranty. In a very nasty tone she said to me you don't have a warranty you have a service plan. I immediately said to her give me a manager or some one other than you because you an i cannot get along she stated certanily and put jeff on the phone. Jeff comes on the phone and said to me sandy is right and if you dont know the difference between a service plan an a warrant i will explain it to you. Hearing jeff say this made me very upset and i told him i did not call to get to learn the difference between a warranty and a service plan. And that i wanted some one to come out and service my oven. In his ugly tone he told me that he would set up a service but i would pay it what is wrong was not under my plan.
I am very angry at sandy, jeff, and venessa because instead of them addressing my problem they a talking down to me and trying to educate me on the difference between a warranty and a service plan when all of this was said and done my problem was not solved. My over is yet screaming. Jeff said to me i will give you an appointment but it will be just like sandy said you will pay if it is the breaker. I hung up on jeff and called back to the department and i asked for a manager. I was given venessa. Venessa was also laid back and making sure she keep in tune with the two reps but i told her that i was no longer calling about the service i was calling about how i was talked to by jeff and sandy. In a very no caring voice she said she would address this issue.
Then she went on to tell me that they were right to try an trouble shoot before service what i have to do before a service person comes out should be explained to me before i buy a warranty oh no correction service plan. Because of the insults i relieved by all three of these reps. I am going to go back to the store and request my money back. It is my goal cancel this warranty oh my bad service plan or what ever you all names it. I am so pissed that i want to say bad words curse words is not my first language. I was born in the error that the customer is always right and i have spent my hard earned money for something that requires me to climb in a crawl space find breaker and then i will be given the service i paid for. I have been a customer of home depot for 20 years. I will not accept or tolerate any down talk from any one i give respect and i demand respect. As you read this you too may be like jeff, sandy, and venessa you may not care about how i feel. But there is a god that sits high and he looks low and he see service contracts written that cannot be used by customer when needed. This is a sad thing.
I am so angry that i will not come back to home depot any more if you check my track record from california to arkansas i have rentals that all merchandise is purchased at home depot however there is other places i can spend my hard earned money. People like jeff, sandy, and venessa should not be allowed to communicate with a customer that are in need of immediate service. They haven't learned how to talk to customers and address there needs.hours later i am yet in my kitchen listening to a singing oven. I am not pleased with the service i have recieved from your warranty oh i mean service plan. When i bought this warranty i thought i would be able to use it without having to solve the problem my self.
I am a mad customer with a singing oven in eldorado arkansas.
We have been waiting for an order from the home depot in hialeah for 2 wks. The order should have been at Caicos Caribbean Lines for freight forwarding 2 weeks ago. I am on the phone today for almost 1 hour and I still don't have a status on this order. Your store manager is unavailable to answer and your freight department is not answering. Please help for we have a 3rd party waiting on a response as well. The order is for Bransford Dean and Claudio (Hialeah Store) assisted him with the order.
This isn't as much a complaint as it is suggestion. I was in your Bennington Vt Store buying some 4X4's. They too high for me to reach so I ashed for help. There where 3 guys standing around not really doing much. One of them came over with no problem and got me a latter so I could climb up and get them myself. I'm white haired and 70+ years old, it would have been nice if the worker climbed up and handed them down to me. He was many in his 50s and should have known better. I'm just saying. I love your stores and wish you the best...
I love Home Depot and had quit a good experience like the stores in the Antelope Valley area and Los Angeles Area. Now for the stores in the Victorville, CA to be exact the store on Bear Valley Avenue, Wow customer service sucks I can’t get a straight answer the inventory in the store is poor it’s as ghetto as it can get cleanliness bad employees walk around you trying to avoid the customer.
We had roller shade blinds installed in our vacation home in Lake Tahoe CA. The install was done we we were not there; a friend let them in the house. Home Depot had an installer they contract with do the installation. When we got up here to the house a month later, half of the shades won't role up all the way, one shade fell down and one shade was never installed, but we paid Home Depot for the work and the contractor that installed the blinds won't return our calls and all Home Depot says is that they will call the contractor and have them call us. This has been going on for four months now. Home Depot should take responsibility for this poor work performed by the contractor, but they are not doing so. The Home Depot store is located in Carson City, Nevada.
I am a general contractor in North Cariolina and I have a home owner that purchased appliances in Orlando Florida . He had the appliances ship to the Hendersonville NC store and I have the PO #and invoice # but the hendersonville store can not pull up the numbers . They said there computer systems do not inter change with one another . (That has been a big headache for me ) They finally were able to find the appliances and we got them set up for delivery on Thursday . They only brought out part of them . We got the other set up for Saturday and then they shorted me 6 items . Took me 2 weeks to finally got them which is not good. They left 3 items that had been canceled and have been given the money back for . They are not ours to keep and I have a dryer that has a dint in the front BUT they don't want to take them back because the where not purchased at the Hendersonville store . The problem is it is two Home Depot stores that are competing against one another FL store made the sale and the NC is going to lose money on them . They are not worried about the customer, only the store . I live 40 miles away one way and have made 5 trips over there . I have called and called each time they take my # and never call back . This job is on a tight schedule and this mess has delayed to job by a month.
Three weeks ago (approximately) I purchased a "smiling face " sponge. (AShark Tank) product. It was the last one in stock. This is the store in Bartonsville, PA. I had wanted to buy at least two. The sales person was sure another shipment would arrive soon. Today (two weeks later) I stopped by to purchase more for my daughters and myself and none were in the store as yet. The salesperson was very diligent and got the manager on his cell beside asking other salespeople,but no satisfaction. Why was the store out of stock?
I purchased a storm door about six months ago if not less. The store door has dislocated from the bottom of the base board four times. Today being the fourth. Your repair man keeps repairing it the same way everytime. The bottom portion of the base board riped out from the door way the first time the door came off. A hollow space was left when the base board separated from the doorway. Whenever your repair man has come to repair the door he constantly puts another board over top of the old base board where the space is. He proceeds to put nails in the base board but never fills in the space left behind from when the door originally came apart. The wear and tear from opening and closing the door puts stress on the bottom portion of the baseboard until it comes apart. The door has fractured the exact same way as it did before. Can you give me my money back or send a person out who will repair the door correctly? I have pictures if you would like to see.
March 23,2015 I found a Cub Cadet ZT riding lawn mower for about $2700 and went to local store and asked they order it for me. Theu proceeded to order it and when the price was displayed found that it was a clearance item for $1777 and I told them to order it for me. I was told the mower would be in by 3-31, I went to store on 4-1 and after waiting about 35 minutes was told the mower had not been ordered because the store could not order clearance items. Apparently they were not aware of this rule. I came home and tried to order the item on line and found that it was available but no longer at clearance price. I am very frustrated and believe I should be allowed to buy this item at the clearance price. I would appreciate an immediate reply. Thank you, Charlene Warren
March 23 2015 I had found a Cub Cadet Zturn riding lawn mower on Home Depot web sight for $2700 (approx.) so I went to local store and asked them to order it for me. They proceeded with order and found that it was a clearance item for $ $1777.00 so I asked them to order it. Told me it would we delivered to store by March 31st. Meantime I received a bill by e mail, so went to store on 4-1-15 and after a long wait, was told that it was not ordered because the store could not order clearance items, I came home and tried to order the mower myself and found the item was in stock but was no longer clearance price and I would have to pay full price. My experience was totally unfair and entire transaction mishandled. The local store employees apparently were unaware the store could not order clearance items and in their defense were not aware of this until 4-1 when I went to pick up the mower.
On March 24,2015, I bought a Garage door to be installed by you ( Home Depot) from your located store of East Meadow, New York, store # 1201.
Of course I paid for the door and the installation and for Medallion Hardware Upgrade, The sales person explained about the upgrade charges and how important to have it. Next day or day after a man came to my house and look to the old garage door and to measure the size and left. Two days after a man came to install the new door and when he was done, he left the old door on the side of the house .I asked him why he is not taking it with him, he said: he is not suppose to take it.
When I bought this door (new) 20 years ago (old door) , the installation company then took the old door without asking of me. Therefore when I bought the new door from Home depot, I did not talk to the salesperson if they taking the old door or not because I thought this is the norm.
The sales person never mention any thing about removal the old door. I called the salesperson on the store, she claimed that she told me about taking old door for extra charges, and promise me to call back because she had another line on hold. Two days are gone and of course she did not called. Now I am stock with old door.
I called the collection Garbage of my town, they requested the door to be cut to pieces not long that 4 feet by 4 feet.
I am an old man (73) and I suppose to take care of that.
This is the services I got from ( your subcontract and the salesperson)
Honest, I wish I never bought the door from you store and probably do not buy any thing from store in the future. And I have to learn the salesperson's tricks , and games they play.
Thanks for listening to my complaint

We purchased granite for countertops on 3/22 at the Mohegan Lake , NY receipt number 1251-548150. We were told that in 3 days someone will contact us for an appointment to make the template. After numerous calls we have yet to have an appointment. We need an appointment this week as it will then take 3 weeks to come and install. We need someone to get back to us ASAP. We are extremely angry at how we have been treated . This is not a way to do business!
Over the last 18 months i have purchased in excess of $40,000 as a single consumer vs a business, in renovation material for 2 homes from home depot in north Miami Beach Florida.
Though my experience with the facility has been truly magnificent, specifically when dealing with certain outstanding individuals; Shauna Brady, Sam in the windows dept. They should be commended for trying so hard to resolve the issue considering limitations. However, my issue is with your third party provided of windows and doors, TM Windows. I purchased in excess of &10,000 for one renovation project in particular from homedepot/TmWindows. All were installed by my installer. One door in particular, front door, was mistakenly installed incorrectly by us initially. Seperately we noticed that the lock mechanism on this door did not work properly.
We contacted tm windows (through homedepot), their representative, Scott informed us that they did not have time to send someone out, he instructed us (and considering house was under renovation) to rig the lock shut by taping it, since he would get to us for 3-4 weeks out. We did as instructed, in the mean time, during renovation the house was broken into and sevreral tools, appliances were stolen. This incident prompted me to call Tm again and escalate the request. At that point they made is go through home depot again, to place another "ticket" for service.
Once they contacted me again (after numerous calls and emails ftom myself and folks at nmb home depot) they sent their guy. He brought a new lock installed and informs us door was installed wrong way.
I contacted them before paying to have door reinstalled in hopes that they might offer some guidance (i did not request they install or even guide the installation). They became so incensed by my requests that it prompted a torrent of disrespectful and useless emails from their management, Michael Arrango. I can provide if necessary. All along, all i was asking for was reassurance before i paid an installer that doors would be installed correctly, they refused.I hired another installer snd re-installed the door. Again only to find that the locking mechanism was still defective. Again this prompted a new set of email exchange, to the degree that Mr arrango became incredibly rude, sarcastic and delusional considering what he claimed they had done and what had actually occurred. Recap: they only sent 1 person out, once.. Installed new lock. He claimed they had completely gone out of their way. I do have over 20 email exchanges, perhaps this is efforts he is referencing.
At the end of the day, we still have a defective lock. They have not solve a problem that has taken an inordinate amount of time and my effort. It is disappointing when one deals with a respectable company such as home depot and then discovers that we are really dealing with companies that are non customer centric and irresponsible. It defeats the home depot slogan.. "Do it yourself" when a service provider of the home depot compromises those efforts. Their approach it seems us to maintain a complete "hands off" the problem for feat that they might have to take back a door or worse yet go through the exercise to send someone out again.
Seems to me (as a business owner) that the cost of solving such a problem could have been addressed easier, cheaper and faster initially if they have taken the time to send someone out again and just provided guidance to a legitimate "good" and valuable consumer/customer of the home depot. I am still in talks with tm Windows and their distasteful Manager Michael Areango. I am hoping they will resolve. As a consumer just thought i needed to advise you on your choice of providers, disgraceful!
I just had the worst customer service experience at store #8440 in Wilmington, Delaware. My girlfriend attempted to purchase me the current offer being run by DEWALT of the 12inch, 15 amp miter saw model #DWS780 (store sku #190262, currently 6 in stock) with the free stand DEWALT model #DWX723 (store sku #235294, currently 6 in stock) as a surprise. She went to the store and visually saw that they were both in stock this afternoon. She came home and attempted to order them online. However, the buy one get one offer is not available for immediate store pick up option at the store (it is at the local Lowes). She came home and ordered it online for store pick up, but it said that she had to wait to for the items to be shipped. She thought no big deal take the email and the store will honor it, if it is in stock. Wrong!!!! Not only was it not honored, there was no effort by the customer service to even attempt to honor it.
I presented all appropriate paperwork, was told both items were in stock, but because it was supposed to be “delivered to store” that I had to wait until it was. After confirming both items were in the store, I attempted to politely explain the situation, however it got me know where. I asked to have the order cancelled and I would go to Lowes, and the customer service representative said “fine: but I have to call and cancel the order. She called the number to cancel the order and they asked her a series of questions. I could tell when they got to why the customer wants to cancel because she paused and I said “tell the truth” and she didn’t. This is the last straw for me. Unfortunately, this store is very convenient for me. I know several of the employees on a first name basis (I also work part-time for a contractor), but from now on, I will drive the extra mile to go to Lowes.
Bottom line, what was ordered was in stock at the store, I had an email saying it was purchased, but because of faults on Home Depots end I am without a product. I will take my money elsewhere.
On 3/19, I had a washer/dryer set delivered to my home. The installer initially refused to install the washer, stating the connections needed to be replaced. To demonstrate, he twisted something, spewing water all over the floor of the laundry room. When I told him to hook it up because I had a plumber coming the next day, he couldn't get out of there fast enough. Left the room in a mess, water everywhere, failed to position the appliances (which I had to do), and after cleaning the water, found that my linoleum had been damaged when they moved the old washer out. Plumber checked all today and stated that everything was just fine, there was nothing wrong w/the connections. Sleazy and unprofessional - and cardboard and Styrofoam debris in the street in front of my house. WO# 1HSS131760, my order # 8572-120385. I am requesting that I be reimbursed for the floor. This was a very traumatic thing to go through. Would be happy to provide picture of damage upon request. Thank you. As it is, I would not refer Home Depot to anyone right now.
I ordered a cook stove AGR4230BAW on 7 March. It hasn't been delivered and the next delivery date is 23 March. There is no reason for the delay.It was ordered from the Red Bluff, Calif store.
I had two windows Installed $1000.00 for one. They were installed Jan. 26 2015. It is now March 10,2006. The springs??? on one Window do not work, Broken. The second Window has a couple defects in the bottom Glass. They have been telling me since the day installed, two to three weeks. The Springs that came in finally, were the wrong color, White instead of Bronze, to match my windows. Had to re-order. Twice, I have informed them about the glass in the second window. And as of today March 10th , since Jan 26, 2015, no one seems to know about the order. I was told it had been ordered. Guess what nobody has any paper work.
Really, for such a Large Company, they are very poorly organized and the communication is pretty sucky. Also the Caulking around the New Windows have been done Three Times, they just keep putting the Caulking over the old. Instead of removing and putting it around new. What I expect is my Windows done correct, since its been 1 1/2 Months. And for the Cost, I expect at least $500.00 refund for my Stress and not getting this job completed by now. Taking time staying Home waiting for Home Depot. This is so pitiful and unacceptable. I Will Never Buy a Screw from Home Depot. I think I have already been Screwed. Home Depot is a very poor excuse for a Company.
I just stopped by my local Home Depot on the way back to the shop to pick up a few items. I had thing that I needed and on the way out I went through the tool /hardware section. They had some Ryobi sale items in the main isle that interested me. We had just purchased a the Ryobi Lithium drill set a week earlier so I was curious about what other items they might have on sale. So I walked down to the power tool isle where all the other Ryobi tools were displayed. I did not stay long. The constant alarm ringing in this section was a major distraction to my concentration to the products. I thought it was crazy to treat regular customers like common thieves by asserting their right to video and have the loud beeping indicator to let you know they were videoing. I spoke to the sales guy working in that department and he stated that they had to by law notify us they were recording. I said OK. I am notifying you that I will not be treated like a common thief and I will no longer be shopping at Home Depot. I liked it better when they had the tool corral. In the old days they had enough employees to be in the department at all times and monitor the area. I wonder why there is not beeping all over the store since they are monitoring us with all the other camera they have.
Any if I was Ryobi I would pull my inventory or maybe pay a little more for a better spot that is away from this distraction. I have had it with Home Depot but love Ryobi. Where to go now. No I won't shop on line with them either.
Purchased a refrigerator December9, 2014. Began having problems with the water filter within a few days was a loud annoying noise. Called after the Christmas holidays lodged a complaint. Was informed by Home Depot it was the manufacturers problem to fix during the first year of service. Home Depot provided a number of a shop that fixes G.E. appliances in my area. They set up the first service call by 1/23/2015. The technician was a 25 year veteran worked on the refrigerator but could not resolve the problem had to return the following week January 27, 2015 for another try at repairing the noise. This time he stated he needed to order parts and did so. He returned on February 6, 2015 to install parts but was made aware by my wife before he left that the noise continued. Have been in touch with G.E.'s twice since then but we were told a chief engineer must come out and make a determination. We were never informed of when this would take place and for the most part have been put on hold all the while we are paying over $1200.00 for this appliance. We seek that they take the refrigerator back and credit our account.
Extremely bad costumer service (1160 Sherman way location). Jose G. Who was supposedly helping me for renting an equipment was very rude for no reason, didn't help out with the carry out at all, and when I retured the equipment 1:23 min late instead of him charging me hourly he charged me for an extra day, even though the invoice he gave me gives an hourly payment rate of 16.71 instead he charged me $65.00 more, replaying that it is the policy of Home Depot! Will not use their services anymore.
I am contacting you in hopes of resolving an issue which came about by trusting the advice of one of your associates to provide the right product for the right job.
My wife, myself and a friend of ours were to install clay tile on a pitched roof of our garage. My wife and I went to the local Home Depot in Signal Hill, CA. at Spring Street and Atlantic. We were directed to the area of the store which has roofing supplies. We spoke to an associate in that area and asked if he could reccommend what underlayment type paper to use to install clay tile on a pitched roof. He said that he didn't have knowledge of that, but that he could get the indivdual that is knowledgable in roofing. Just as we finished this conversation, the individual that he was going to contact showed up. We relayed our inquiry to him regarding the proper underlayment to use for installing clay tile on a pitched roof. He walked over to section of rolled paper and informed us that this is what we needed to purchase for the job. He then asked how many square feet of roof, and based on our answer told us that we needed two rolls. We purchased the 2 rolls of GAF TRIPLY #75 BASE SHEET that he suggested. Our friend installed the clay tile roof after laying down the TRIPLY. All appeared to be well.
At this same home, we had a contractor doing some more extensive work at our home. While he was on the jobsite he noted some rot on roof plywood planking over the porch. We had him include that in his bid. He removed the clay tile and the damaged plywood planking. He replaced the plywood planking. We informed him that we had leftover under layment from installing the garage roof. We brought it to him and he took one look at it and said, this is not the right paper to install for this type of roof. He told us that the TRIPLY #75 BASE SHEET is only used for hot mopped flat roofs, and not to be used under clay tile roofs. My wife immediately went over to the Home Depot to speak to the supervisor on duty. Her name is Letty. My wife explained our dilema. Letty went to her computer, went on the web and pulled out the information sheet TRIPLY Design and Application Instructions. She read through the information and informed my wife that this product can very well be used for application of clay tile on a pitched roof. My wife brought the information home and I reviewed it when I returned from work. After reviewing the information sheet for this product it clearly states that it is not for pitched roof application. It is a product used for a flat roof much like my contractor indicated.
The following day my wife went back to Home Depot. Letty was not on duty. She spoke to another supervisor that was on duty, his name is Alex. My wife again explained our situation, adding the newly acquirred information I had read from the information sheet for this product. At that moment the associate that had suggested the TRIPLY arrived at the customer service desk. He immediately spoke up. His memory was clear about our visit and about the job we told him we were going to perform, but he said he did not remember giving us any paper. My wife asked him; you remember our visit, our questions to you about the product to use for this type of roof but you don't remember providing us the paper? Other customers who were standing at the desk and Alex looked at him in disbelief. My wife then asked Alex if someone from Home Depot could come out and evaluate the cost of a corrective repair. He said Home Depot would noy do that. He said all that he could authorize is to return the money for the TRIPLY paper which was purchased. My wife was very dissatisfied with his offer and asked for the corporate contact number. He told her it was on the receipt.
My wife contacted Cindy at 1 800 654-0688 ext.76526. She was given a case number of 51625944. She said she would investigate. The same day Letty, the first supervisor my wife confronted about our situation, called my wife and offered $200 plus the cost of the material we bought for the inconveinence. My wife informed her that the lowest bid we had to replace the paper on the roof was $1,650. My wife asked her to send someone out from Home Depot to replace the paper for that cost. Letty said that would be impossible. My wife then called Cindy at corporate customer service to update her on the conversation she had with Letty. A few days later we received a letter of intent to provide us with a gift card of $250 to compensate us for our troubles. I have attached the letter with this email.
What I am asking for, is more reasonable compensation for the troubles your associate has caused us. If he hadn't been presented to us by the first associate we spoke to as being the technical person to speak to regarding roofing material; I wouldn't have put as much faith as I did in his decision to provide us that paper. Please review the trouble your employee has caused us, and provide a equitable compensation.
Thank you for your time in reviewing this matter

On 11/21/12 I purchased a refrigerator from the Home Depot store in Fishkill, NY. We were told that we could have it delivered by the 26th and that the item was in stock. We opted to have it delivered on December 10th. A few days later I contacted customer service for delivery and asked if it was possible to switch the delivery date to 12/1/12 and was advised yes. They changed the date. We did receive a confirmation phone call the day before and advised they would be at our home between 2-6 on that date. We sold our old refrigerator and had them remove it on the day the new one was to arrive which was 12/1/12. It was getting late so I called delivery and was assured they would be there but probably running late. They never showed. I called again but they were closed. I then called the Home Depot where I purchased the refrigerator. After two days of calls back and forth I found that there was a mix up with the customer service in delivery. I am livid. I had to throw out food as we did not have a refrigerator then had to buy a dorm size refrigerator from Lowes for the rest of my food. Our refrigerator will not be delivered until 12/10/12. I feel we should be not only compensated for my loss of food but also for the inconvenience of having to buy a dorm size refrigerator of which I will have no use for once the new one is delivered. I was going to purchased all my appliances at Home Depot since I just moved into my new home, but because of this I had second thoughts.
i purchased a toro recycler lawnmower in oct.2012- i bought it early so that it would be available when i needed to use it.it started when i assembled it according to instructions. the next time i tried to start it was without success. i returned it to the home deport where it was purchased at 6708 e. mckellips rd in mesa,az. they basically told me tough luck, the store manager did not try to communicate with me,even though i waited for over an hour,and not only that they also would not direct me to a place that covers toro warranties. the mower has a three year warranty but i can't ship it back to iowa,in my opinion home depot should exchange it. but i guess they were right- tough luck- i'll remember this and alert any and all who may ask about the practices of home depot.
On September 2nd I ordered a LG Washing Machine on the condition that it would deliver on September 7. The order was taken by the web and the delivery confirmed on September 6 in the afternoon â as scheduled. Approximately 7:00 PM on September 7, I was notified from the LG Home Depot Support desk that the order would not be delivered as scheduled â no reason was given. I called the LG support desk at 8:10 PM and learned that it was closed for the day.
I then contacted the HOME DEPOT support team. That was a colossal waste of time. During this call, I was told that an appointment was made for September 14. At no time was I contacted about that delivery date â frankly it is unacceptable. The customer service representative and her supervisor were unable to insure the order would deliver as scheduled and the best they could do would be to an email because LG was closed for the day.
I then cancelled the order after telling them in no uncertain terms I would no longer do business with HOME DEPOT.Â I want to make sure that you all fully understand the ramifications of this in action.
1 â The order was canceled. I will go to LOWES and order a similar device for about the same price. LOWES will deliver next day. So, instead of a making good on your promise to deliver, you have lost sale.
2 â I will not shop at HOME DEPOT again. The last major purchase will be paid off by the end of the month and totaled about $2K. The previous year I re-did my kitchen using the Depot program. That cost approached $20K. Since 1996 (my retirement from the army), I have been a loyal customer â generally spending a conservative average of $2.5K a year on everything from wood to plants. You have lost these sales.
3 â I am a logistics professional. I fully understand inventory, manufacturing and shipping â that is my life. To suggest that the delivery is manager by LG is purely a resource driven decision. I may be made by efficiencies, but there are hundreds of work arounds. None of which were explored ore even offered. Why pick up the phone if you canât fix something.
4 â I will tell all of my friends and family of this transgression and urge them to not shop at HOME DEPOT
In sum, the inability to even offer any alternative options or delivery for this device and failure to understand the consequences of this failure speaks volumes for HOME DEPTOTâS inefficiency and management style. It is not my concern â nor should it be â that this decision was made by LG â they are your vendor and should not be managing you.
I you would like to chat or if you have a resolution, but given the inept customer service and inefficiencies Iâve experienced in this debacle, my guess is DEPOT will not attempt to salvage my relationship.
I was making a payment on line and thought the transaction was complete but got a notice (on the web-site) that there was a problem. So I called the customer service and told them I wanted to pay the bill but I wanted to be sure it didn't get paid twice.
( I was paying off the total of over $4,700+ !!)
The lady said, "Oh, not to worry, if that happens we'll refund it no problem! So, I gave the info again and the next day I found out the payment had indeed been taken TWICE!!
So, I called customer service again. They said, "Oh yes, we see the balance was paid twice and you have a $4,700+ credit balance and we'll be happy to refund but it will take about THREE WEEKS!!!!!!!
$4,700 is a lot of money to me! I'm bouncing checks, even to the I.R.S.!! I need that money back NOW!!
My husband and I were at the Bossier City, LA(#364) Home Depot on February 21, 2013. After waiting for 40 minutes to be helped we finally got a manager to come over who was anything but courteous. Due to time restraints we had no option but to continue our purchase, however we will not be shopping at this store again. We spent over $800 and were treated very rudely. We spend a lot of money at Home Depot as we are doing a complete remodel of our home.
In our newly purchased house, we decided to replace the laminate countertop with Silestone countertop. We selected a design and Home Depot sent the contractor to take measurements in about 15 days. We placed the order on July 27, 2012 and paid in full around $6,200. After about a month of order placement, We received a call from the installer that they want to come for the installation on a week day no later than 3 PM. I told them that on week days no one is at home before 6 PM and requested if they can come after 6 PM on a week day or at any time of their choice on a weekend. They told me that this is not possible. Therefore, I had to take day off from my work to get the countertop installed.
They came to install the countetop and found that they had made mistake in measurements of the two pieces for the sink and breakfast nook. After about a couple of weeks a person came to take the measurements for the those two pieces. After another couple of weeks later I received a call from them that the new pieces of the countertop are ready to be installed and someone should be available at home on a week day before 3 PM. Again I requested them if that can be done after 6 PM or on a weekend. The answer was the same "No". I had to take time off from work again.
Finally they came to install the two new pieces at the time of their choice. This time the new pieces were of correct dimensions but they looked different in color (shade) from the rest of the pieces. Also the breakfast nook piece was not installed horizontal. It was leaning by 1/2" from outer side. When pointed this to the installers they said it is because of problem with the brackets and nothing wrong with the coutertop. The old Laminate coutertop was perfectly horizontal with the old brackets though. When informed the salesperson at Home Depot about these issues, he assured me that they will compensate me and fix the problems. Then started a period of inspections of countertop. The Assistant Branch Manager came to see the countertop herself. She noticed the difference of color between the new and old pieces but she wasn't sure whether this was due to different lighting in different sections. We provided them the picture of the old and new pieces which were clearly showing difference.
After about 5 months, today, Dec 01, 2012, I was informed by the manager that there is nothing Home Depot can do and I have to accept and live with it. So here I am after spending close to $7,000, taking two day off from work and living about 5 months with broken kitchen walls (they broke the dry walls while removing the tiles from back splash). I am wondering do I have any recourse? In this case they (Home Depot) are the party and the judge too. Is any body at the top in Home Depot who cares for customer satisfaction? I have had absolutely no complaints against Home Depot before this transaction and for any renovation project, my first stop has always been Home Depot. However, after going through all this, I feel like I have been ripped off and I will think 100 times before turning towards Home Depot.
I had Bailey's Co coming to install a dishwasher and was told between 3 and 7. Called @ 6:00 and said it would be an hour, called back again @8:00 and said they had 1 more drop off and would be there. I told them I have two small kids that I need to get to bed and this was too late anyway. I told thr driver to put us first on the list for the next morning and to call me back for the confirmation, by 10:00 no call by Bailey's. I called them and explained the situiation to the manager (Sam) and said I wanted the dishwasher installed that day and he said he could not do that and it would be another week. He did not offer an apology or even act like he cared, he was too busy too deal with customer service complaints. Home Depot these are the people that are repesenting you company, you might want to look into this. If this what I can expect in the future Lowes can have my business.
I purchased a Maytag front load washing machine Oct 2010. I also purchased Maytag dryer. The dryer had to be repaired soon after purchase. The washer had to be repaired within 2-3 months after purchase. I paid about 700.00 for washer. The first repair was done by A& E Service. They were horrible. They came in to diagnose it and ordered the parts. They said the parts were being delivered via UPS on a certain date. Took the day out of work no delivery. called them they said the parts were on backorder. How do you come up with a delivery date if the parts are not in stock?? The parts totaled 693.00. This went on for 5 weeks and the customer service was horrible. Finally the parts arrive. It was fixed on April 12,2011. That was covered under manufacturer warranty. So 700.00 worth of parts, my cost of 30.00 week to Laundromat for 5 weeks, plus the original price of the machine. Now the second repair was done Jan 15, 2013 $350.00 for parts. New England appliance was great to work with. I took out extended 2 year warranty. Just placed another call for yet another repair the machine is not pumping water out instead it's draining on my cellar floor. I also purchased Maytag OTR microwave with glider tray on March 12, 2011. On March 11, 2013 it has also failed and is currently not working. I'm starting to believe Home Depot bought Maytag appliances at a good deal before Whirlpool bought them out. These appliances are horrible. I'm so disappointed with the whole situation. I don't think I should have to keep renewing my warranty through Home Depot to cover these bogus appliances. I read many negative posts on complaint boards and didn't want to resort to that so I felt a direct e-mail would be better. I don't see me purchasing anything else from your store and if friends say they are looking for appliances I will just shake my head no.
I placed an order for same day store pick up. When I arrived at the store, half the order was missing and there was no record in Home Depot's system that I ever ordered anything else. I cancelled the order completely. 13 days later, the ghost order showed up. I got an email letting me know it was ready for pick up. I called the store, cancelled it again...it had not been charged to my credit card at this point. The next day I got a call from the local Home Depot that my order was ready for pick up. I again cancelled the order(3rd time). The next day, my account was charged for the amount of the order. I now have encountered a $37 overdraft fee which Home Depot refuses to pay for.
PUCHASED BUILDING MATERIAL ON 27 MARCHH ANS ASK FOR AND PAID FOR DELIVERY A FEW DAYS LATER WAS TOLD I NEEDED TO AIT FOR MORE LUMBER TO BE ORDERED IN STORE I SAID OK THEN AFEW MORE DAYS WENT BY AND WAS TOLD THAT SOME FO THE POST I ORDEREED WERE IN BAD SHAPE SO ORDERING MORE AGAIN I SAID OK AND WAS TOLD THET WOULD BR IN ON THUR THE 11 OF APR. AND THE DELIVERY WOULD BE ON SAT THE 13TH OF APR. AFTER SITTING HERE MOST OF THE DAY I CALLED HOME DEPOT AND WAS TOLD THAT THE DELIVERY WAS NAT SCHED. BUT COULD BE DELIVERED ON THE FOLLOOWIND WED THE 19TH OF APR. WHICH IS 22 DAYS SINCE THE ORDER WAS MADE AND I AM VERYY DISCOURAGED WITH THIS SERVICE.
4 weeks ago I ordered mini blinds and installation from the Harrison, Ohio store. They didn't give too much information about the process, they just said it would be about 2 weeks. Well the contractor Arts blinds took 2 weeks to come measure. then I had to go back to the store to get blins well the store was out so the store called me when they got the blinds back in. another week.
The store said they would call Arts blinds and let them know that I had the blinds. well when I called Arts blinds 2 days later no one from home depot called like they said they would. so I had Arts coming out today because they only come to Indiana once a week they say and I had my 18 year old son stay home from school. He was supposed to be there between 9 and 11 a.m. Brandon called and left a message saying to call the store Arts blins .
Well when I did no answer I left a message. No response so I call on my 10 minute break and the lady said he couln't find a place to enter the house that wasn't muddy. If he would have pulled in the drive about 10 feet there was a sidewalk and grass and another door . Well the lady said he can't come for another week and I think he should've come back today or at least this week.
So I'm having someone else install my blinds and I just want you to know what kind of people are representing your name..By the way when I called the store al I got was thats your right no apology for the worst experience I have ever had with any store. Believe me when I get my money back I will never go there again even if I have to drive further.
Have feedback for Home Depot?
Thanks for your feedback!
Sorry. Please try again later!
