Exactly the same bottle of gin is $10 more expensive at BWS than Dan Murphy's - Even though they are owned by the same company - Woolworths.
So what's the point of going to BWS?
No communication Delivery a joke
order placed and was supposed to be delivered at 3.35 Time on yellow courier app kept changing so called the 1300 number and was told that they would get a driver asap. 2 minutes later the order is cancelled so called the Mindarie store and they said they would assign another driver . Had the same issue again with the app telling me the order was just seconds away for another hour. Called yello they said they were told the order had been cancelled over 2 hours before but would reassign another driver. !0 mins later order is once again cancelled. Had enough at about 6 pm and drove up and collected order. Not one person had the common decency to let me know what had happened and why. Very very poor customer service.
Staff never ask for rewards card & never give receipts!!! Then when you say something about this to them they say i was just about to ask you for your rewards card, which is a lie! Once I walked out the door she started talking about me behind my back!!! How RUDE!!!
You Need A Rewards Card or you get slugged 24.4% Extra - What A SCAM!!!
Carton of beer $41 with a rewards card - $51 dollars without one, all because you don't want to give Woolworths your personal and shopping information.
It reeks of DISCRIMINATION
Guess I'll reward BWS with not showing up to their crappy stores.
- Online store
- Verified customer
Ordered beer and wine online. Asked for cold beer. Delivered wine only. Driver took off before I could get him. 15 minutes of phone calls. Another 30 minutes only to deliver warm beer. 2 things they had to get right. Only 2. Won’t be back.
The most expensive store. Avoid at all costs.
They are constantly 10-25% more expensive than other outlets. Do your homework and check online first. Just lazily bought a bottle of Cointreau. $64. $50 everywhere else.
Shop around. Avoid BWS
Very poor service
5 orders never delivered but money taken and takes 10 days to get a refund. Rude staff when call for a solution. Aggressive and you are made to feel like an inconvenience.
Terrible customer service, IF the driver turns up after waiting 3 hours then you might be greeted with a lengthy walk down the street cause the idiots don't know basic English to read a street sign. 10/10 makes me want to headbutt a knife.
Atrocious online and useless App
With COVID I tried to order 1 bottle of our friends favourite spirit to be delivered for his 50th birthday as we cannot be together to celebrate. The online (after all setup rigmarole) went ALL the way to the end taking my cc details then 404 not found. Rang they store, they said try the app instead. Would not let me use password so create ANOTHER account, all the way to the end of the order and a message pops up that the particular item - they won't deliver. Find new IT dudes who understand user interface.
ONLINE DELIVERY A JOKE
Don’t do it!! I have ordered online with BWS since it began and I have to say that it’s come to an abrupt end. Six times I have not received my products because their couriers are too dam lazy to knock on a door or assume you’re not home and take the products back to the store OR go to the wrong house!!!!! Fed up and angry at the fact I wait all day for a Delivery to end up with nothing. Get your act together BWS your customer service needs a major upheaval and sack those idiot Sherper drivers and use someone more reliable. SIX times I’ve had ...nothing but dramas getting deliveries. It’s not on. Quick to take our money though!!!!!! Not one person takes any responsibility whatsoever!! All I get told is it’s not BWS’s fault it’s the delivery company. YOU are responsible for who you hire for your deliveries!!! The worst I’ve ever had to deal with!!! Charlene from Mirrabooka. You’re an angel and thank you for your kindness and empathy and for making the delivery yourself when you didn’t have to. Human kindness at its very best. Your employer is very lucky to have you!!! As for your couriers they are dishonest, lazy, and downright rude!!! SHERPER YOU ARE A JOKE!! Uber Eats Coles Woolworths and everyone else I do online shopping with I’ve never had a drama but you guys are a disgrace!!!!!!!!
Staff lack the ability to make a decision
My partner ordered wine online and asked me to fetch it. She send me a string of messages about it attached her photo ID. I showed this to the store along my drivers license which showed our matching address. Unfortunately they said that because I'm not her I can't pick it up. Is it too much to empower a store manager to look at the balance of evidence and probabilities and make a decision? Poor service.
I've tried to order some wine online.
The website would not allow me to - they don't deliver to the central coast (!!!).
I can't select pick up because god knows why. (screen is gray)
called support - they see a completely different website, so we can't work out anything (they just say "it works for me"). Huzzah.
So all in all a non-working website and a non-working support.
Then they send me a link to a survey, which I did not ask for - and said link does not work either (blank page) !!! And of course there is no way to reply to the sms to get my number removed.
I'm back to Danmurphys, thanks, this is just bloody awful.
Their 100 days of summer promotion does not work for free items.
I got a free bottle of bluey beer but when I go to redeem it. It doesn't work, When I called their customer service, they said they couldn't do anything about it and just asked me call after a week.
Took my money no product, no help from calling either.
Don't waste your time. Go anywhere else. Online ordering is inferior to anywhere else. Even when calling the help centre i was told to wait a few business days and see. Incredibly unprofessional.
Tried to order
Many times when BWS has had specials on Petaluma Chardonnay, BWS Eastern Road Turramurra are always out of stock.
Yesterday 21.12.2019 I visited BWS eastern road and purchased 4 x bottles of Petaluma Chardonnay ( on special $40.00) and 2 x Scorpa Chardonnay.
I discussed with the store I would ring to order 24 x bottles of Petaluma Chardonnay before they run out of stock for Xmas.
Today 22.12.2019 I rang to order the 24 x bottles only to be told I had to shop on line.
I do not & have never shopped on line & will never do
After this decline, a...
Terrible service won't be back
Late last month Carlton draught was on special but when I rang the Sorell Hobart store the woman I spoke to said it was only certain stores so I rang the Dodges store and they said to come to their store and they would give me the special that the sorell bws was supposed to give, this is a bad way to run a business, the staff at dodges are just awesome so I don't mind going out of my way to go there.
We ordered online, money taken from account and no confirmation of order. When we called customer service , we were advised the order was not processed on theie end correctly. The cso said "There could be a hundred reasons why this happened" and the order will not be finalised. But they were able to take the money without any problems! We were told it will be refunded within 3 business days. No other solutions. No other offer of fixing the problem. Happy to take the money, not happy to help resolve the issue. Ended up going to our local, and it was cheaper anyway. Will be the last time we shop with bws.
Refused service and rude women spoke over me before walking off
I went into flagstone bws purchased a bottle of alcohol was served fine my father was looking in the fridges so after paying I went over to him who was standing with my 14yr old & 17 yr old daughter I spoke with my dad about buying 2 four packs of cruisers my daughters mentioned how I could get the same flavours in a 10 pack that worked out cheaper for me I ended up only grabbing the 2 four packs as it was only me drinking it and didnt feel the need to buy the extra that I wouldnt drink anyway , on going to pay they asked for my daughters I.d a...ll because they had mentioned me getting the flavours in the 10 pack I got angry with the worker who had advised she had only been employed 2 weeks I continued to say to the workers my daughter is 14 theres no way I would be buying alcohol for her when this women continued to talk over me as she walked off they were nothing but rude I ended up getting a refund on my other bottle of alcohol none of the workers knew how to do that and needed to call 2 different people and I am now still waiting on my refund to go through to my bank definitely wont be buying from them again would rather drive further and get served by people who are not rude and who dont assume that all mothers buy alcohol for their 14 yr olds in the end I got my alcohol anyway it just made a nuisance of me having to drive elsewhere
I would give it a zero if I could
Shopped at the Warriewood Square store and was treated appallingly. Will never go back. I would suggest you avoid this store at all costs. Raised the issue with customer care and to say they did not care would be an understatement. I have always shopped at BWS but will not be shopping there again.
Way too expensive
BWS is a massive ripoff.. the prices on special are average prices elsewhere.. never a good price ever. They cancelled VOK range, disappointing... Lowering alcohol and packaged sizes and raising prices... Awful greedy corporation, doesnt deserve my money or anyone else with some integrity.
