Levitz Furniture Corporation Complaint
False Warranty, Terrible Customer Service - Urbana Dining Set - Bad Customer Service & False W



Had new table, 8 chairs and matching hutch delivered in Aug 2006. We discovered blistering (bubbling of the varnish) on the beveled edge of the table

in July 2007. Called within our one year warranty to have service. Technician told us at time of servicing that he was unable to fix the problem. It was due to

moisture within the wood.

His temporary fix to sand and refinish did not remove the problem. He told us that this was a manufacture defect and we would receive a call to get new table

top. No call came.....

On Sale in March - Not in Stock till June! - Outdoor bench



In one of Levitz's March ads inserted in our newspaper, they advertised an outdoor bench we were interested in. That same weekend the ad ran, we

went to the store, but were told they had not received them yet and to come back in a week. Now usually, that would be enough for us to just walk away, but

we really liked this bench so we came back the following weekend.

Surprise - still no benches in stock, but they could order one for us.....

I worked for Levitz...



I spent several horrible years working for Levitz, and from seeing the inside of the company, I would not recommend shopping there. First off, for all of

you who are receiving damaged furniture and dealing with incompitant customer service people you need to know that half the people who work in the

distribution facilities are on drugs (maybe more than half)! Every manager knows it, but the company would not pay for drug testing....

Really poor web site
I am grading the web site which is pretty lame for a company of this size. I was looking for a bookcase. There were no listings for bookcases, nor was there a search option to find any. I quess they want you to come into the store. Sorry, but I do as much research as I can before I head out the door because I don't want to waste gas drving all over town for one item. Too bad Levitz!...
