I placed my order and paid the extra £1.50 to speed up the delivery. I waited and waited for my order to arrive and eventually emailed Beautybay to ask them if they could tell me when I could expect my order and also under the circumstances refund the £1.50 as it had been ineffective. I received a standard, impersonal reply
'We're sorry to hear your order has taken longer than expected. Whilst we strive to excel in our delivery estimates, unfortunately our Free Saver delivery does not have guaranteed delivery dates or a tracking number. We do, however, offer a guaranteed tracked service, called Next Day and we're the first beauty retailer to offer this expedited service for where the order value exceeds £70. Hopefully your order will arrive soon, but, if you need your beauty fixes quicker, be sure to use our Next Day service in future'.
Not particulary helpful!! I eventually received my parcel with Post Office tape around it. If I had have removed the tape then there would have been a large gap at the bottom of the parcel. This leads me to believe that the reason it took so long was shoddy packaging at the source. I emailed Beautybay again to let them know it had arrived and why I thought it had taken so long to arrive and I received the following reply
'We are glad you've received your parcel and sorry for the delay by the postal service on this occasion. We sincerely hope you enjoy your items'.
Again they didn't get the point. I gave up at this point as life is too short but I did eventually get a final email from them saying that as a gesture of goodwill they would indeed refund my £1.50. Hooray. It's just a pity it took so long for them to try and appease a customer who will more than likely purchase again from the internet but who will probably use another company who is more customer friendly. Done!!!
I saw a Barbour jacket that I really liked in John Lewis but they didn't have my size. Not to worry I thought to myself, I'll look for it on the internet. Googled said jacket but most of the stockists were 'Out of Stock' for the size and colour of my desired coat. Except for Country Attire. They had my coat in stock and it was competitively priced. Not only that but I could also choose a free gift (worth £40) to add to my basket. The jacket arrived a couple of days later. I was kept informed of the time and date of delivery by text and even knew the van driver's name. I did have cause to call Country Attire as I couldn't get to grips with the weird 'Barbour zip' but a very helpful young man called Josh patiently talked me through the technique. All in all I'm delighted with my new coat and would use Country Attire again in the future.
