Poor customer service, Loud Manager
I purchased a pillow from Carnegie store at the time of purchase nothing was told about not refunding even nothing was written on the receiptexcept that they accept 28 days change of mind returns. 2days later when I went to refund they refused saying due to hygiene purpose they don't refund, because I touched it. I told them that I didn't used it but even then the manager started to argue and became so loud that my partner could hear her from the other corner of the shop. The packaging was without a plastic cover at the time of purchase so any...one could have touched it, when I told that I will email the authorities she decided to give me an exchange instead. Highly unprofessional attitude..they have lost a customer here and I won't be recommending anyone.
Really good at replacing or refunding products
I want to say that Harris Scarfe are really great at exchanging or refunding products that I am not happy with. No questions asked, they just do it! Usually great quality products.
Poor quality, not as described
I purchased Access 1000 TC ( thread count) cotton rich sheet set. The texture is rough, even after washing, the weave is uneven, not as good as cheaper 250 TC. I compared product to other 1000TC sheets I own. Label says cotton rich but it is an unpleasant blend. I feel ripped off, a very poor quality product with deceptive labeling. Don't buy.

Harris Scarfe Customer Service
After an appliance had developed a fault I visited the Chermside Westfield store and subsequently contacted the Harris Scarfe Customer Service team. The staff member at the store checkout was very helpful and the Customer Service team member provided a prompt and detailed reply with a completely satisfactory resolution of the problem. Excellent service from both branches of the company.
Tea Tree Plaza store manager, Susan Maddeford is the wife of infamous criminal Wayne Maddeford (Assult, Armed Robbery and taking court worker hostage). Would not allow my teenager to work in a dangerous environment.

I bought a Nic Morris imitation leather jacket 2 years ago. I'd worn it less than a dozen times when I noticed the coating on the neck peeling and disintegrating. I did not wear it again and decided to report this to Harris Scarfe which I did after some delay due to Covid 19 restrictions. I had to contact them twice about my report because they didn't bother contacting me. I was told the jacket was out of warranty and they don't stock that item anymore. Put simply, bad luck mate!
I was going to buy some jeans there, but after reading how poor ...
I bought a quilt cover but accidentally bought a bedsheet. Did not even open it, They Refused to refund my $40. I will never ever go there or recommend to anyone.

Pay almost 17% more to purchase in store
I needed some new Smith & Noble Pillow Protectors so looked them up online Thursday prior to going to the bank, & they were $9.99. When I went to the Sunbury store I also purchased a King Doona Cover but themost total price wasn't what I was expecting, so I queried it. I was told the Pillow Protectors were $11.99 so I pointed out they were showing as $9.99 online but was told instore the price was $11.99... Luckily the Doona Cover instore price was the advertised price of $114.99. I've never heard of 'selected advertised specials' only bein...g instore or online in the same Sale; but know I didn't misunderstand as I asked the guy twice & actually said I thought it was very strange. While it's only $2, I'm sure if I was $2 short they wouldn't wave the difference. So I think in these hard economic times it's quite poor form of Harris Scarfe to ""Sneak" extra $$ here and there & I actually wonder how often its happened when I've purchased multiple items and haven't noticed.
I visited the tarneit store today, I would consider myself a regular shopper with a positive shopping experience. Today I was in store to return a pair of faulty shoes for replacement. I was greeted by a helpful young lady, I explained the fault and she was more than obliging, when her co-worker “Conner rudely interrupted” , and stated the he too had the same shoe and hadn’t experience the problem that I I had with my husband shoes (third time it had happened), I kindly explained to him that I was looking to replace the shoes as it had happened...a number of times prior (frankly $129 a pair they should hold together longer than a month) he rudely replied by stating that I was out of line. ( I too work in retail, explained that he was out of line by suggesting that I was trying to replace the shoes without due cause) his manager, I only wish I had caught her name, intervened and said that I should not speak to her employees the way I did. I would consider her behavior ( only because I lead my own team in the industry) nothing short of unprofessional, rude and disrespectful. I will never return to this store or any other Harris scarf store because the experience I endured today.
Bad customer service
Went to Harris Scarf Coburg yesterday, served by a middle age black hair lady, unbelievable she is very rude and unfriendly, I felt her does not like to work there, made me feel so bad and unhappy, won’t back again.

Sad they are closing
The layout of the store Airport West store was fine , clear big signage as too where some items are would make a big difference. It was neat and tidy too.
There where prices up for some items but not all which was a bit annoying.
We bought stone pots and pans and we were very happy with these easy to clean products literally no more scrubbing. We bought plates Maxwell Williams and some loose items too and pillows were at a good price too. Will be back before they close.
Staff at register needed a boost me up they gave customer service without a smile . Only one floor staff visible and no assistance was given either. But considering they might be affected with the job losses I can surpass that.
Will be back to buy more
Missing component & poor service
Bought an electrical food chopper at harris scarfe store and when I opened it back home it was missing a the lid. I called up the store and was told because I hadn't bought a display item everything should be in the box. Well the lid wasn't.... The service over the phone was very poor and essentially, they did not believe me when I told them it was missing the lid.
Everything I’ve brought from Harris Scarfe has been great quality! I have recently just brought a healthy choice dehydrator and also a wool quilt, both have been fantastic, the staff are always helpful and friendly
A Puzzling Example of Poor Customer Service
Although I don't usually lay-by this morning I decided to take advantage of this facility as I have done in the past to buy some shoes at Harris Scarf and after an hour of trying on various styles took two pairs to the checkout only to be advised that the store does not lay-by on reduced items!! According to the dictionary the definition of sale is "a period during which a shop or dealer sells goods at reduced prices" and the definition of reduced is "make smaller or less in amount" so am I just stupid or is there a difference? If something is ...reduced obviously at least to me it is on sale. In any event I didn't get the shoes and am not only disappointed but decidedly angry because there was no signage anywhere in the store indicating the difference between "reduced" and "sale" which is misleading to say the very least.
Poor customer service
Husband and I visited the Rundle Mall Adelaide around 8pm-9pm on 6 Dec 2019. Prior to that, we have been in and out several luggage stores to look for affordable quality luggage. I went back to the Harris Scarfe store to look and decided to buy the antler juno 11 4.4 kg luggage with the request for price match. Staff informed us that they can do so with the same color and looked at the Myer website which offered the luggage at $30 less. Another elederly lady was assisting a younger staff as to our inquiries. We asked for a black one if any was ...on stock because they have the last one available on display which was scratched and seem to have been used. Without looking at their inventory level from the computer, The elderly lady informed that no stock is available. I was prepared to buy the turquoise color instead and same lady answered curtly none is available . She answered without understanding my question when there was several on display! The younger lady directed us to grab the bag as she says she cannot leave the counter when there were three of them standing there at about 5 mins to close. My experience at Harris Scarfe was disappointing, not helpful and rude service by staff if not trained are incompetent to front customer queries. You are not the only store u know that sells luggages. So we walked out and chance upon the RAA store around the corner which offers the same luggage at considerably half price lesser than what Harris Scarfe is selling. Myers and other shops have cheaper quality products than Harris Scarfe. Dont be fooled
I felt a little awkward because I needed to exchange a set of saucepans that were unsuitable. Brad ensured the process was quick and easy, and provided an alternative product at a good price.
Great place to shop
Am so glad a friend recommended a visit to the Mackay store and was very pleasantly surprised. Have purchased clothing and homewares on many occasions and very happy with all purchases. Prices are very reasonable, comprehensive choice and friendly service at the check out. Quality in every case has been excellent. Couldn't ask for more.
Where has happy customer service gone
After i had to search the store for assistance, I went to pay for my purchases, had an e-gift card, older lady was not happy, complaining that it wasn't as simple as just scanning it, that she then had to ring to authorize it then send a copy back... why are you in customer service if all you want to do is complain about servicing the customer?
Three people serving at the registers who completely ignored me today in the airport west store, later heard on of them say she was the assistant manager. In today’s poor economy I would have thought they would give better customer service.
