  • alternative stores



    I've had such bad experience with the bricks customer service that i started looking for some other locations for furniture. i highly recommend going to kennedy and lawrence (head north on kenney). basically a strip of furniture stores that were decently priced and were much better in terms of dealing with customers. I also found this store on kingston and galloway called mude furniture that carried the same stuff as the other stores but at a better price. they actually price matched what i found on kennedy and lawrence and on top of that gave me a 10% discount. i highly recommend them!

  • Bedroom furniture SUCKS!



    We bought a set on Boxing Day 2014...it wasn't delivered until Jan 16 2015. Yesterday was exactly 2 months since we got it. I am 6 months pregnant and the king sized bed collapsed!!! While we were in it!!! The "support" boards and spindles FAILED and snapped in half! In order for us to be able to have a bed to sleep in last night my husband and I had to buy more wood and screws to fix it. We spent over $2000 on this set! NEVER EVER AGAIN will we buy any of their crappy furniture! I was lucky to have him home when it happened as he is a truck driver and was able to help me get... More...

  • 3 piece sofa set



    3 piece sofa set purchased 3years ago, Aug 2012...still under 5 year warranty, I spent $4808.95 in total at that time. Queen mattress, tv with stand, kitchen dinette + 3 piece sofa set (Angus recliing chair, loveseat & sofa). I have tried to maintain it in good condition, but it has started to flake, bubble up and tearing looks tattered and old. Very disappointed in this product..cost was about $1999.97 with angus tv package. The Confirm#223207 placed on my couch was inspected on Feb 21, 2015 and the Brick will repair it. But I called back asking if I could speak to someone about... More...

  • The Brick destroyed couches in less than 2 years



    I purchased a couch and matching love seat about a year and a half ago, Granted i went for the fake leather which was probably a bad call on my part. Now, a year and a half later the two couches are ruined. All the fake leather is cracked and it looks like a 20 year old couch. Not to mention the seams completely ripping in multiple places. Contacted the Brick and they had nothing to say but too bad so sad because it was out of warrant. I asked that they didn't feel the need to stand behind their products when being i n such ruins after short little time, answer was no. I actually was... More...

  • It's like getting conned by this company.



    I've ordered a fridge from the brick for our new house. A month before moving they phoned us when the exact move in will happen. Told them Dec 3/14 then a couple of days before move in, they said that the fridge is not stock and they have to order it in. Almost a month that we didn't have a fridge and we used the garage as a cooler. When they delivered the fridge, the delivery guys said that space for the fridge is a little small that we have to get our builder to fix it, in short, they were not able to install the appliance. The builder got a piece of the baseboard out of the... More...

  • The Brick Extended Warranty



    We purchased the extended warranty on our Appliances and they said if you don't put in a claim after 5 years you get that money back to put towards another purchase in the store....Great!!! Of course they don't tell you is they DO NOT let you know when your 5 years is up and its YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to contact them after 5 years to claim that claim free warranty because it expires 90 days after the anniversary delivery date. This is only one issue of a few with the warranty at The Brick. Don't ever get extended warranty all the way around they will always find a way not to pay. More...

  • Poor Quality



    We bought a set of Tyson Reclining chairs that had numerous problems - but we bought the 5 year warranty blanket which apparently covered everything. So, they gave us our money back and let us choose a different couch. We chose a sectional with storage ottoman and paid again, for the 5 year warranty blanket. Within two months of the new sectional being in our home, it started to sag, get all pitted, and looked like a ten year old sofa that needed to be replaced. I called the warranty and had them come in to try and shave the couch. The guy told me he would order fabric to replace it -... More...

  • Mattress Warranty Issues



    We bought a $2500 mattress. Within 4 years the mattress sunk 2.5 inches and it was like sleeping on a hammock. We called to register our complaint and the girl at the Brick told us that we had to fill out forms and that they would email them to us and that we would have to fax them back. We agreed. 3 weeks later, still no email. We called back and the next girl at the Brick told us that customs haven't had to fill out forms in years and that the first girl had misinformed us. She took our complaint and 3 weeks later a technician showed up at our home and inspected the mattress... More...

    Worst customer Service ever. Managers don't return phone calls, you actually have to go down to the store even then your lucky if you get to speak with someone who can help you. They have delivered us TWO damaged fridges! They brought us fridge #3 today and went to the WRONG ADDRESS!? We have lost hundreds of dollars in wages just waiting for them to deliver yet another damaged fridge. Very unsatisfied with this business and will not be returning. I would rather spend my money elsewhere at a business that actually appreciates our business!! More...

  • The Brick - Mattress In Stock??



    I was doing research to find myself a brand new mattress and found that The Brick had the best sale out of 4 mattress stores. Last night I had gone to The Brick in Woodbridge and got assistance from a lady name Sharmala. You can tell she only wanted to make a sale as my questions that I was asking were brushed off and short-answered. She had told us this certain mattress was in fact in stock, ready to go and that it would be delivered within 2 or 3 days. I find out this morning that the mattress in fact was NOT in stock and now I have to wait a week or so. I was lied to and not aware of... More...

    I bought a Brada washer from the Brick July 2013 from the Brick on Clarence in Saskatoon. I was asked if I wanted the extended warranty. I asked if I qualified because I live 30 minutes on a major highway East of Saskatoon. The sales person told me I did and there was no problem. My Brada washer broke 3 weeks ago. It will not rinse. So I went to the Brick on Clarence in Saskatoon and told them I needed a repair person. They gave me the warranty number. I phoned the warranty and gave them my information.

    I bought Full 5yr blanket coverage along with my furnitures. At the time,the salesman said if ANYTHING happened to your furniture , you are covered. I called them about the veneer that pills off on one side of my dining table. First time the guy asked me to send pictures. I did and nothing happened . after a month I called them back the lady was nice and she tried to order a replacement. But suddenly at the end she told me that my colleagues saw your picture and there is some scratches as well as the damage that you mentioned so the warranty is voided!!!

    Bought a washer and dryer online. Took 3 weeks to get it. When we got it, dryer was dented badly. They took it back and replaced it the following week. 2 months later the washer broke down. Still under warranty, contacted the company that made it, told me to call the brick, called the brick, they said call the manufacturer. 3 months later, I am paying the brick to come and pick up the broken washer and replace it with another one. Terrible customer service, warranty service, all around garbage company. Never again. Cutting up my brick card. More...

They were to be ready for pick-up on December 5th and if there were any changes a representative would contact me. Of course this did not happen.

    Bought a mattress set that the sales agent "described". Was not allowed to try it, but was assured I could bring it back within 180 days as long as I used a mattress protector. I asked to try it in the Warehouse and was told there was no room. Took it home, laid on it still in the factory plastic, and it was horribly uncomfortable - not at all what was described. Took it back a few hours later - they refused to take it back. They told me they could not "legally" take it back.

    Hi. I bought a sectionnal at the brick in gatineau. I got told that i didnt took the warranty for the fabric. The only warranty I took and offered was for the construction. After 1-1/2 yrs, they came back to replace the cushions as we were feeling the springs. On The Brick website, it says that cushions wont desintegrated. Bullshit. So now since we didnt took the warranty for the fabric, we have to deal with a 2yr old couch as the fabric is ripping out everywhere. They couldnt even arrange us something.

    We purchased a considerable amount of furniture through the Brick when we purchased our last home - fridge, stove, dishwasher, couch, loveseat etc. After less than 6 months we noticed that the reclining seats of the loveseat and couch were leaning towards the outside when you reclined them, leaving you feeling like you were slanting when you were reclined.

Montreal Distribution Centre is the pits!

28 November 2014 (Black Friday)
A number of items were ordered, totalling $5938.82. This figure was paid in full. At that time the three items in question (two loveseats and a chair) were to be available by mid-December.

3 December
I visited The Brick to claim the Samsung Tablet (a bonus for purchases of over $X). This had NOT been mentioned on the day I made the purchase.

9 December
Upon my checking with The Brick, I was advised that the three items above would now be delivered on 3 January. There was a discussion as to whether this meant they were to be delivered to the Distribution Centre or to me. At any rate, the latest delivery to me was to be by 5 January.

2 January 2015
I telephoned The Brick to confirm delivery and was advised that two pieces only were to be delivered on/by 4 January.

4 January
Nothing! Power outages had shut down the Distribution Centre and the local store. I did not receive any call about non-delivery either.

5 January
I called the store (speaking to a not-very-helpful lady) and was told about the power outage. I called a second time and was told that only one piece could be delivered unless I wanted to receive two pieces, one of which was damaged (a most stupid comment for the Customer Service male to make). I asked for the manager to call me back but she did not do so. I then visited the store and spoke to Sarah, the (duty) manager) and was told that she did not know whether one or two pieces were available – but that delivery could take place only on 7 January.

7 January
At about 1700 the delivery was made. The chair was put in the lobby while the other piece was brought in from the truck (note that TWO pieces were being delivered). I inspected the chair and found that the power cord had been sliced off and that another plug from the power unit was dangling in space! The chair was eventually taken away by the truck. Meanwhile the deliverymen brought in a three-seater and got it all the way to the sixth floor before finding out that it was for somebody else! Eventually a loveseat (the unpowered one) was delivered and unpacked! I advised The Brick by telephone about all this. I received a call back (from a very pleasant and helpful Brittany) advising that another piece would be delivered on the 11th but that progress on the third piece was still an unknown!

10 January
Elizabeth, presumably from the Distribution Centre, called to advise about delivery of the powered loveseat. I told her that I had been told on the 7th that delivery was scheduled for tomorrow. She responded that she had no delivery scheduled for me – but that she would try to schedule it for tomorrow. I told her that I was furious with The Brick. She responded “Well, I won’t try to schedule it for tomorrow then”. I put the telephone down.

I called the store (514-965-9600) and spoke to Brittany. I asked for Sarah but she is not in today. Brittany remembered our conversation but, after checking the file she agreed that no delivery was shown – and she thought that was rather strange. Further checking revealed that the powered loveseat was scheduled for Tuesday (13th) (and had, presumably, just been received) and that the powered chair was not yet in stock. Brittany suggested that the loveseat scheduled for tomorrow may have been found to have been damaged. She said that she would attempt to get the loveseat re-scheduled for tomorrow. She said that she would try to call back today with an update and that she did not leave work until 1700.

I advised Brittany that I would be writing to the managing director about Elizabeth.

11 January
Nothing!

12 January
Received call from, presumably, the Distribution Centre to advise that two pieces of furniture are to be delivered Thursday. After some discussion this was changed to Wednesday the 14th. I asked why nothing had been delivered yesterday and was that I had put the telephone down on the person who called on the 10th - it was either that or explode! I advised the male that I would be sending a letter to their managing director complaining about Elizabeth.

I live in hope of delivery on Wednesday - but I have no expectation of a positive response by The Brick management

Stay away from the brick not good quality furnitures. We wanted brand new for our new house ended up having damaged and low quality furnitures. If you want to have your blood pressure high call their customer service, they are not suppose to be there taking our calls very rude. We will never go there again.

I PURCHASED A SOFA AND CHAIR WITH OTTOMAN BACK IN JUNE OF 2013. IT STARTED TO TEAR AT THE SEAM AND I WAS TOLD IT WAS COVERED FOR 1 YEAR. I CALLED THEM AND THEY SENT SOMEO ONE TO LOOK AT THE DAMAGE AND TAKE PICTURES, I WAS TOLD SOMEONE WOULD CONTACT ME AND THE SOFA AND CHAIR WOULD BE PICKED UP IN 7-10 BUSINESS DAYS. 3 WEEKS WENT BUY AND NO ONE CONTACTED ME. I CALLED THEM AND I WAS TOLD THEY WOULDN'T REPAIR MY SOFA OR CHAIR BECOUSE THE REPAIR WOULD COST MORE THAN THE ORIGINAL VALUE OF THE SOFA AND CHAIR. THEY OFFERED ME 150$ FOR THE SOFA AND 300$ FOR THE CHAIR. I WAS VERY UPSET WITH THIS AND REFUSED IT AND ASKED TO SPEAK WITH A MANAGER. NO ONE EVER CALLED ME BACK, SO AGAIN I CALLED BACK AND WAS TOLD THAT THEY HAD DECIDED TO EXCHANGE MY SOFA, THEY WOULD EXCHANGE THE CHAIR TOO BUT THEY WOULD TAKE THE OLD ONE BACK BUT NOT THE SOFA. THE DELIVERIES WERE SCHEDULED FOR JULY 3RD, NO ONE CAME. I CALLED BACK AND THEY CONFIRMED FOR JULY 8, WHICH IS TODAY. THEY SHOW UP WITH THE SOFA ONLY, I REFUSE THE DELIVERY BECOUSE HE IS REFUSING TO PICK UP THE OLD ONE TO TAKE TO THE RECYCLING AND I DO NOT HAVE ROOM FOR BOTH. I CALL BACK AND AT THIS POINT I AM FUMING, IT IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVE TO TAKE A DAY OFF OF WORK FOR THIS DELIVERY. I AM ON THE PHONE WITH THEM FOR OVER AN HOUR, BEING TRANSFERRED FROM DEPARTMENT TO DEPARTMENT HAVING TO EXPLAIN THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN. FINALLY THEY SCHEDULE ME FOR THIS COMING FRIDAY, JULY 11TH. WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. I HAVE NEVER DELT WITH SUCH AN UNORGANIZED COMPANY IN MY LIFE. I HAVE WORKED IN CUSTOMER CARE FOR OVER 20 YEARS (NOT THE BRICK) AND OUR COMPANY POLICY IS ALWAYS TO GO ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR CLIENTS, MAKE SURE THERE NEEDS ARE ALWAYS MET AND ISSUES ARE RESOLVED. THIS HAS BEEN A NIGHTMARE WITH THE BRICK AND NEVER AGAIN WILL I ORDER FROM THEM. THEY JUST LOST A CLIENT, NOT THAT THEY WOULD CARE.

My husband and I bought a sofa and love seat from the Brick last December 2013. We didn't purchase any extra warranty as it was so cheap we figures it's not worth it because it already came with one year. The salesman we had I the PG store said that it was no big dp deal because it was all Canadian made and was some of the best the store had. He convinced us that what we had bought would stand up for years to come. By the second month we had the furniture it literally started falling apart. It started with the cushions that came with it .... They were fraying. Then the seating cushions started to fray and the seams started coming undone. So I made a call to the 800 number and the lady asked me to send her photos of all the issues with both sofa and love seat so I did ... As soon as she got the photos she called me right away and said oh yes we've had this issue with other sets just like yours and what we can do is offer you full replacement value in store credit or we can replace all the cushions and give you an in store crest of $400.00. We decided that because it would be a hassel to do he entire return that we would get the replacement parts and and the I store credit. Well..... That was in January ...... After several and I mean several phone calls and them telling me my order didn't exist and that my phone number was invalid and they had none of the photos I sent in that I would have to talk to someone in store. Let me tell you that was the most unpleasant conversation I have ever had until I talked to the lady in the PG store. I was clearly upset as we had already been waiting for 4 1/2 months for replacement parts and when I voiced that all I wanted was my money back to go elsewhere she promptly told me that the offer of replacing the cushions was now off the table and so was the $400.00 in store credit because she didn't like my attitude. I WILL NEVER AGAIN DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY. We did end up getting replacement furniture and it's the faux leather sofa and love seat. We waited 2 months for it to come in and we had to pick it up ourselves after paying for delivery because the lady said she refused to have it delivered once again because of my bad attitude ...lol I think anyone in my position would have had a bad attitude by that point.... Anyway to put the icing on the cake when my husband picked up the new stuff the lady advised my husband that because this was replacement furniture that all the warranty was now null and void. I have no clue how this place stays open. Customer service is clearly not one of the companies strong values. I wish I could name the lady who was so completely ignorant but I know thats not aloud so I just hope that she gets put through some customer service orientation program to learn how to speak to her guests in store. Again I will never shop at the brick again and neither will any of my family and friends as this was so stressful for us they are standing beside us

Worse furniture store around. I will never shop at any brick store again. Totally useless and very rude. Worse customer service staff ever. They give you the run around and could not care about their customers. You spend thousands of dollars and they treat you like crap. I was warned about not to purchase anything from the brick and did not listen to my friends....biggest mistake, it will never happen again. A company not worth two cents.

I purchased a dinette set in 2011 & a 5 year warrenty. Last week I notice that the table top is bubbling so I sent the brick an email. They asked for pictures so I sent those too but the requested other pictures because they claim they couldn't see the bubble. After several emails back & forth I decided to call them. I spoke to a young lady that looked at the pictures & told me she was going to call the store where I purchased it & order me a replacemt for today July 26th. So we got the table ready for exchange but I noticed that thebrick hadn't called me yet to arrange an exchange time. So I called the warranty dept. & was told that there was no order. I asked to speak to a manager the lady on the line said she is a manager. So I told her that I wanted my table by today or the next day.she told me the earliest would be Tuesday next week I told her that that was unexceptable. I told her that I wasn't happy. Just I I told her that she hung up on me. I then called the store to see if someone could help me there, I asked to speak with a manager & I was told that there wasn't one there & I said how can there not be a manager in the whole store. She then told me the manager was with someone but I could leave a message so I did & I still didn't get a call back. The message was very discriptive. I then decided to call the warranty dept. back & spoke to someone else not the lady that hung up on me & had my number but never called me back. This lady apologized for her co-worker. Told me she could have someone do the exchange on Tuesday. I told her to set that up. She suggested I complain in a form of an email. So there you have it. Bad really bad customer service. If there weren't able to deliver the table today they should have told md that several days ago.

Massive Delivery let down from The Brick today:
Pre-arranged 12-4 delivery window with the Brick over a week and a half in advance.
Reserved elevator and someone to be present.
Voicemail from driver on delivery day 730am confirming 10-1pm window.
Called customer service - doesn't open til 9am.
Called 901am, advised impossible delivery, Cust service advised driver knows elevator window.
Get call from driver at 1050am - I adv'd I would have someone call within minutes and to stay there.
Arranged person calls driver immediately and agrees to meet within 10 minutes.
Driver leaves and does not wait 10 minutes. Rescheduling is definitely 4+ days away.
Although I was very clear on time frames, as I needed to be for the elevator book - it's our fault for not being there.

Why would someone buy something online? Simple answer is to get it as soon as possible. Forget about it if you buy something from thebrick.com. You will never know until you buy something from Brick that it takes about 40 days to arrive. You think when you give them your credit card information, you will receive items, but that's not true for Brick.
I received a call and they didn't even left me a message. I searched number in internet and found reviews saying that they call you and if you don't confirm, they discard your order. Then I called that number. It goes to a VM box asking to call another number and it also say we don't check Voice messages.
I called this new number and a very rude customer service lady answered. She didn't want to even listen to me. I spent over $ 5000 to buy these Crap.
Then they put a delivery date after 37 days. Finally when you get your order, items are missing and you have to fix them yourself. After few months, you notice that those items are not in good quality.
Third world countries have better customer service than Brick.
Bottom line: They advertise that you don't have to pay 15 months, but that's another trap. You have to get their high interest credit card. Nice advertisements and shows reasonable prices, but DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY TO BUY CRAP FROM BRICK.

We ordered a leather couch set on Wednesday from The Brick in Ottawa East end . Not the first time we have ordered there. We never have a problem with the quality or the service and this is why we continue to shop at this location.
It came on time as usual two days later. . Besides the delivery guys being a bit rude , delivery went well. When we inspected it later ,we realized some of the threads were loose. We called customer service and within mins of explaining the problem they scheduled a delivery of a new couch for us on the next delivery day.. Today.
Delivery went well, the delivery guys were polite and extremely helpful and we have a perfect couch. All this in one week. I couldnt be happier.
Perhaps the problems I am reading about here are the locations... Or the fact that people only like to complain when there is a problem and feel no need to compliment when they are happy.

If I had known before purchasing my furniture from the brick that they were hard to deal with, careless of their customers and disrespectful I would never have purchased anything from them (Dundas st Mississauga, Ontario Location). I am extremely upset and disappointed with their poor customer service. When i first purchased my furniture and electronics from the brick they harassed my husband and I about getting warranty and spent the whole time explaining to us the pros of getting warranty. I wish they had explained to us the cons instead. A year later, my mattress was already ruined springs coming out through the sides and our leather "SOFA" had ware and tear so we called trans global their warranty people and they came over to check out the furniture. Few weeks later I received a call from the brick location I purchased my furniture from and they said i could go ahead and re select the "SOFA" and they would just give me another mattress. (which i never asked why i couldn't re select it myself) Must I add that on the day the woman called me from the brick to make my re selection she only gave me a number of how much to spend and didn't explain what it consisted of. I then called a few more times before going to re select to make sure everything was indeed how they stated on the first call and let me tell you I called at least 5 times and I got 5 different answers. One of the questions was "With the left over money from the re selection of my "SOFA" can i purchase something else?" The answer was yes and I went a head and bought a microwave. This happened on Sunday so on Wednesday I received my "SOFA" , mattress and microwave. The delivery guys took back the defected "SOFA" and the mattress. A few hours later I received a nasty call from Natalie the manager at the location this is how it went. "Hi so and so who was home at the time of the delivery and why didn't the love seat go back?" EXCUSE ME!! no one talks to a paying good customer like that. Moving on I found out that the re selection credit given to me included the love seat. As you can see while reading this I quoted and cap the word "SOFA" for a reason, the love seat was never mentioned in any of my conversations with the Representatives. I understand that I got a microwave as an extra but I wish someone at the brick had notified me of what my credit consisted of. Now they claim if i don't give back the extra or if i don't give back the love seat or don't pay it will be given to collections. Now the brick ignores my call and emails, I'm always getting transferred and having to explain myself again and again and when I do leave messages they don't get returned. The brick is ignoring the fact that they are at fault for not explaining to the customer the terms of the credit. OH and by the way the nasty woman on the phone told me I should have known what the credit consisted of and they didn't have to explain. WOW WAY TO TREAT YOUR CUSTOMERS! THE PRICKS LOVE TO RIP OFF OTHERS BUT WHEN IT ACCIDENTLY HAPPENS TO THEM THEY DON'T LIKE IT. One of my missions in life now is to make sure everyone I know is informed not to shop at the brick!!!

I phoned the Brick twice more only to be told they had to get approval from Whirlpool. I again phoned Whirlpool and they sent a fax to THE Brick , well i phoned the Brick the next day to inquire about this S, She told me ONLY I could get permission from Whirlpool to get a replacement, I informed her the fax was sent in the day before and what time it came in. She said imediatly i'll phone you right back!

The Brick - 1607 Dundas St E, Miss, Ontario

August 20th - visited this location and was IMMEDIATELY approached by "Rawji". By the end of my visit he had sold me a fireplace and mattress (while bashing his counter-part at the Mavis location, advising me that they had ripped me off on my previous purchases....he referred to you Lennox). The delivery was scheduled for Sept 2nd as teh house is being remodelled and therefore was vacant until September. The delivery people showed up (un-announced) on August 27th, they called me to advise me they were waiting outside and I was therefore forced to make a special trip up to let them in. Upon inspection of the fireplace, it was evident they had sent the incorrect pieces (the wrong doors). I called them to let them know and they advised they would have someone bring the correct doors out on Aug 31st. On that day (for which arrangements were made for soneone to wait for them), they cancelled and re-booked - (without my knowledge) for the 1st. On this day, they called (not just the wrong number BUT showed up at the wrong house!). I contacted the store and was "greeted " by a RUDE female " Denise" (who has no business answering the phone to paying customers) and requested to speak with the manager since RAWJI was left 4 messages NONE of which were returned. I spoke with "Vicki" who reviewed the information and acknowledged the comedy of errors within their organization but offered no apology. She advised they would simply reset the delivery for Friday night. I later (having still not heard back from Rawji) took it upon myself to call and finally got him on the line. His only explanation for not calling back at all over the previous 4 days was simply that " he was busy ". I explained the litany of mistakes they made (anticipating not just an apology but some sort of offering)....NONE of which was provided and actually received an attitude from this guy (now that he had his sale from me). He proceeded to ask me " what I wanted " and said " there's no money to give ". He then told me he had to go since he was dealing with customers and when I requested he transfer me to his manager.....he hung up on me! I have left a message for the manager and am awaiting her call.

The brick does not follow through with what they promise on their warranties.Have been dealing with what I call a big sink hole in the middle of my sectional,their techs say normal wear and tear???? Also was told by one tech that they use "cheap chinese foam" thats the problem, he should have checked out my last name before making that comment. I have had to be the one calling and emailing them,absoulutley no customer service at all. I finally talked to the store manager Paul Dyer from central city in surrey after 2 months and no he wasnt rude but oh so very condensending.

DON'T BUY FROM THE BRICK

The after sales service is HORRIBLE. They trick you to buy the extended warranty on furniture. When it comes to repair, they'll delay it, never return calls, put you on hold forever, asking manager etc, ask for quote from their supplier and never get back to you for weeks, all sorts of reasons for trying not to fulfill the warranty.

I bought around 9000 dollars from the brick to furnish my house around 4 years ago. I have a wonderful experience. The sales person was very friendly and told be she would have everything delivered exactly a month later. I took the day off and got eveyone out of my house to prepare for the new stuff. I got a call in the morning telling my what time they would be there. They arrived right on time, were very friendly, and set everything up in a timely matter. I had nothing damaged and to this day 4 years later i still have no problems.

On Aug 15th my husband and I purchased a sofa and love-seat from the Peterborough Brick store. The first two sofas were damaged.

Last Thursday Sept 17th the third sofa was delivered, it too was damaged, I phoned the Peterborough store speak to *****, as she was had been helping us deal with the problem, she wasn't in until the Saturday. I phoned back and asked to speak to a manager, I was put on the phone to Dave. I started to explain the situation, but he interrupted and said he was putting me on hold, as he was busy with other customers. I told him I thought that he was rude but he put me on hold anyway !! Upon returning to the phone, I again started to explain the situation, and said that maybe we should have put the furniture on deferred for fifteen months instead of paying for it upfront, he interrupted at one point and said "Well you got money off it, didn't you//" I told him the set had been reduced further in the sale, and that was the credit we were given. I'm not sure if he was implying that we had money off , to keep a damaged sofa. At another point he interrupted and said" Well you have the sofa in your home , don't you ??". We have a second damaged sofa in our home, covered over, waiting to be returned, the third one didn't make it past the front door, the delivery men suggested I inspect it on the driveway, it had been previously opened and had a slit in the leather on the left hand side.
Finally after a couple of interruptions I said" Can I finish what I'm saying??" to which his answer was "No!!"

At this point, I told him that I had found ***** and **** from his store very helpful, but that I found him very rude and arrogant, and that I didn't want to talk to him, I would phone back next day and talk to someone else.

I realize managers are busy, but should maintain a certain level of professionalism. I felt I was treated with disrespect, and that he had no interest in soling the issue.

On September 25, 2008 I purchased (Saleorder Number 09258440527‏), from the Scaborough SuperStore, a living-room set. I paid $1200 in cash for two sofas, tables and two lamps. To date I have received everything except for the lamps.

I think that it's absolutely rediculous that I would have to wait three months for the delivery of items that have been bought and paid for. Initial delivery dates had been established for the delivery of the lamps and every time, 4-5 times in total, those delivery dates had been pushed back. At this point the superstore is unable to determine when, if ever, those lamps will be delivered to me.

I had called The Brick's customer service department yesterday and the representative suggested that I go to The brick's web site and select replacement lamps. I thought this was a great idea. I selected the replacement lamps and I called the superstore to inform them of the change. I was informed that there was a price difference between the replacement lamps and the lamps I originally ordered; as a result I had to pay $56. I simply cannot believe, after the money I've already spent and the time I've waited, that The Brick would attempt to squeeze another $56 from me.

The Brick speaks loudly about their 'commitment to provide an enjoyable shopping experience' but you do nothing to display such commitment to your customers when difficulties are experienced. The simple fact is this: I entered into an agreement with The Brick. I did so under the assumption that the goods I purchased would be delivered to me within a reasonable period of time (a right, I believed, is accorderd under the Consumer Protection Act). Three months is definitely NOT a reasonable period of time. If The Brick cannot provide me the goods we agreed upon, within a reasonable period of time, then you should offer me a replacement for those items, at NO additional cost.
