I should have checked the reviews before I bought the product online
I purchased a cast-iron casserole which was reduced by 40%. I thought I had a really good deal until I saw that there's a chip on the lid. I only saw it when I was washing it after I used it for the first time. I guess it doesn't affect my cooking but it just looked unsightly.
I am not complaining about the product. Two glass coffee mugs. But the packaging was way(!!!) over the top. Four metres of bubble wrap at least. And on a box large enough to hold a very large microwave. For two mugs. Why???? So much landfill.
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

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?
Shoddy customer service
An item was missing from my order, which I'd already signed for, believing that order was complete ...sent 2 emails, contacted customer support by phone and didn't get any answers, went on their facebook site today and wrote a comment about my issue as well as send them a message, within half an hour I had a reply saying that item weas on it's way ...maybe F/B is the quickest way to get some action ?
Purchased bluestone pots and pan kit
Purchased Bluestone Pots and Pan kit - which was a bargain stating it was $500 and reduced to $100 at Epping store , Took it home and spent an hour trying to fit the Pan handle to the Pan, then Finally realised when the larger Pan handle fitted straight away, that this was a manufacturing fault becasue the screw would just not go in because the threading was crooked. To make matter worse I noticed this pan had the rubber bit missing and the other pan did not , so this was repacked and put back on shelf so another customer had returned it and H...arris Scarf Epping staff just put it back on shelf hoping the next customer would just take. The sticky tape was not perfect but i just ignored it because I thought its just like that because staff check it for missing parts. Anyway very angry as I have to ring up for return and explain all of this to them and spend waste more time. You get what you pay for sometimes. I wonder if the quality of the pans are all the same and dont fit well.
High price and dangerous
Years ago I was looking for Christmas presents. I went to HS in Box Hill and bought a set of Pyrex measuring bowls, 60% off and I paid $60. Then I went to BW in the next block and found for the exact same item it was $50. And not discounted.
Had not gone back to it for years.
Today I went there with family and cut myself on a corner of the plastic strip that was place at the front of of the shelves. Instead of being made properly by cutting and smoothing of at the edges it was just snapped broken with sharp spikes at the corners. I showed th...at to the cashier. She acknowledged gracefully but went straight back to serving customers. I just hope she rectify the problem later. Just make sure you price around. The fact that it gives 50 % off all year round shows you the margin of profit it runs.
