Why does the date my items will be shipped to the store keep changing??? Is it that hard for you to be efficient with in-store orders????

I placed two orders very early in November to pick up in store and still haven’t received. Both were supposed to be in store at the latest early November but the date keeps getting pushed back. What gives? I would have paid for shipping instead of going through this hassle. No standards?

  4. Hi UpsetCcustomer1000! We can have a SearsCares team member look into your order for you! Check back on this thread soon for a reply. They will do what they can to help.

  5. Adam - The full details of what the merchant is supposed to do are given in the link above. Should the client fail to respond to the advice AND the delay is more than 30 days the order is SUPPOSED to be automatically cancelled and a full refund PROMPTLY given at the 30 day mark.
    Whilst 'I hear you' on the subject of the client not picking up the phone. That may or may not be true in this case. However, is it not also a possibility that the client has had previous experience with Sears customer service, or lack thereof, and is unwilling to repeat the ordeal?

    Maybe the customer did not pick up their PHONE. I hear the rate of customer phone response can really be poor.

    I'm not sure if customer special orders include a contact eMail address.

    That would be useful.

    But, some customers are not happy when their over-due orders are flat-out cancelled.

    What kind of product did you order? Was any explanation given as to why the delivery date was being pushed back? If the store isn't receiving the inventory in a timely fashion, what makes you think paying for shipment would have helped the items come any sooner? The items are bought and paid for, with your name and order number on them, correct?
