Who is in charge of the sinking ship?

When trying to return an item on day 90 of the return period the staff (including the manager) were either unable or unwilling to complete the return. “Customer service” has truly become an oxymoron at Sears. Does anyone wonder why the company is failing?

  1. There was another unintelligible voice mail from Sears regarding this matter. Nearly a month has passed since I began trying to get this matter resolved. What will it take?

    Please respond by email, as telephone communication has proven ineffective. I prefer to have a written record of future communication.

    Do I need to get State authorities involved? I believe your policy - as printed on the store receipt - gives customers some specific legal rights, and I further believe Sars is in violation of Law.

      I would have to say the "case manager" didn't try very hard to reach me. No sign of a call, no voice mail, no email. Nearly 36 more hours have passed since your last message above, and still no contact. Why don't you people just stop pretending your going to take some action and tell me to PlSS OFF - that's what you really are doing.
