Our customer service experience with Ashley Furniture was good. They were very professional and kind. They cared for our concerns and took very good care of us. We didn't need delivery but they told us of all available options and they were very detailed in their explanation. The variety at the furniture store we visited was minimal at best. The store was huge however the variety wasn't what we expected at all. We were told the product was top of the line and that it would be sturdy and well usable without problems. The sofa and chair are both broken after less than 2 years.

They were friendly at the store and helpful to find what I needed. The wrong sized pillow case was in the package that I bought. I called the store when I realized it and they were able to locate the correct size in stock for me, even though the item was on final sale and they had very limited supply. I did not order anything via delivery. Store has a good variety. Wish more of their items were on sale at the same time though. Good quality. Washes well. No problems so far.

Knowledgeable, friendly, great service all around. Not pushy sales people or keeping on your toes to sell you something. Comfy furniture and clean showrooms. On time, fast, reliable and knowledgeable of equipment and furniture - the placement of furniture they make sure you are satisfied before leaving you. Great variety of furniture and quality is outstanding and strong and tough... get thru my 3 year jumping on the furniture even when asked not to take a licking and keeps standing. Strong reliability, nice colors and fabrics, comfy all around, the best furniture I have owned out of others. Yes I would recommend it.

Customer service was pretty standard to the norm. Nothing too fancy. Were somewhat attentive to our needs as a whole in general. Was a reasonably good experience overall. Delivery options were pretty acceptable. They were flexible in setting up a time that would better suit their customer than rather arranging events to better suit themselves. They had many varieties of home furnishings to choose from that were colorful and had a modern appeal to them. Most items were designed with high quality appeal them. The quality of their home furnishings was pretty good overall. They carried many top name brand items to choose from.

Very attentive and informative. We had questions about a certain item, as well as shipping and a promotion that was going on, and the person we were working with was very knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Made us feel welcome and like we weren't being a bother. Had shipping available and we discussed with the associate we were working with and the pricing of delivery, if we could get it free, and what steps we needed to take. The store had a lot of variety, with different styles of furniture and pricing. We were able to find a few items that for our styles within a price range that fit our budget. Good quality with good variety. Haven't had any issues with our purchase and it holds up well to pets. We bought some nice items that look expensively made, but we're bought at a reasonable price.

I was able to get all questions answered quickly and efficiently. I love my purchase, and I can thank the sales associate for her recommendation. I could choose to have home delivery or pick up from the store. I picked up at the store, because it was easier for me at the time. Very easy to do. Great variety of items. There was so much selection of gorgeous, trendy pieces. I loved the variety! I searched several different stores before I found the perfect piece at West Elm. The furniture I bought is the highest quality, and is holding up so nicely. I absolutely love how well made the item is and how gorgeous it looks in my home.

I ordered a very expensive table and it was shipped to a different address. They shipped me a new one the very next day. With expedited shipping at that. Their delivery options are the best of the best. They have standard shipping which is usually free after a certain amount is spent. With expedited shipping, you get your items the very next day. They have so many items to choose from. It's very hard to shop there because I can never make my mind up what I want. But it's so fun! I will continue to shop there. The quality of the product you order is top of the line. The price does reflect that but the product is something that you will use for years.
