Hot Returns

Nov 06, 2014 by Tamara

I went to the Sears in Ocean, NJ in July to return some items ordered online. It was a warm day and the store was HOT because the air conditioner was broken. I had about 20 items to return in the hot store and I was not looking forward to it. At the register, the cashier was so nice and kept the order organized. It took a while because there were so many items, but she made sure every item was checked off on the receipt. She made great small talk and also shared her little desk fan with me. You would think that working all day in a store with no air conditioning in the middle of July would be a nightmare, but at this store it was actually great! I had ordered online because I don't like dealing with people in stores, but I actually like this store now.

Sears will not return 2000.00 for an appliance that was delivered damaged. Did not work. The customer service told me to take sears to court. Then started laughing. Good company with out a doubt!

I would give Sears no stars for returns if possible. I purchased a new air conditioner from them 32 days ago, the machine broke and I was told they would not take it back!!! The salesman told me that all product could be brought back in 90 days. I hope Sears folds, this place is as unethical as they come!!!!

Terrible products, policies, and service

Aug 18, 2013 by Cusuomer

Got a die hard 750 battery jumper as a gift that was broken out of the box. One of the prongs where you plug it in to charge it was snapped off. I was told I could not even exchange it for the same model. They sold a defective product and did nothing to make it right, now I am stuck with a $79 paperweight. Even wal mart has better service. This is the reason Sears is going out of business.

I recently received several items at wedding gifts. Many tools were duplicates of things I already had, so I wanted to exchange them for things I don't have.

At the store, I was told that I could not even exchange these items without a receipt so they could verify they were purchased at Sears.

The products I wanted to return were still in the packaging, never used and I could find all of them on their shelves, but I was still told I couldn't exchange them. Instead, they suggested I start calling friends and family to get their credit card info so they could track down the purchases in their computer.

I am very disappointed in the return/exchange policy and will definitely avoid Sears in the future because of terrible customer service.
