GucciConsumerAffairs Unaccredited Brand
I bought a pair of espadrilles on the 7th March. Worn them once on holiday in a hotel. When putting them away and inspecting them I notice 7 things wrong with them. Took them back within 28 days. I did not look before wearing as the price of £355 I thought no need. Taking them back to the Gucci shop in Glasgow I was met with, "They are a raw finish." Funny does not say that on website!!
Everything Gucci makes is a raw finish apparently is to cover them when something goes wrong. So the sales assistant went over the shoe with me and covered my points of concern on the shoe. Glue marks gapping in the twine and several bit of the twine sticking out. 7 things I was not happy with they got sent away the pictures not the shoes? To come back and say this was my doing 1 wear. Goodness know what 21 wears would look like. NO REFUND OR EXCHANGE. Absolutely lost faith in the product. Will never buy from Gucci again. Now going to take a case out with my credit card company.
I purchased a belt from the Gucci store last summer for $350. I put it away for the winter, when I took it out a few weeks ago, the belt was warped. I called Gucci and they informed me that I can send it their repair shop which I did. They sent it back worse than before stating that the belt was unrepairable.
I bought a pair of shoes of almost 1500 US. They order them from the store to be delivered into my house. Almost a month passed! And they didn't arrived. When I call to check. No one answer. I call to customer service and they could not do anything because the Gucci store had to help me. I called for days and never answer. When I finally talked to them they told me sorry whatever and that they were resending the shoes which never arrived again. Againnn I keep on calling and same story. No one answer. After almost more than a month of buying I got to speak with a manager who told me I had to wait. They had a mistake and then they call me back. I had to wait more! So I got pissed and finally she sent me the shoes again. And I got them. But horrible time, they were expensive and they treat you as nothing matter. I had to pursuit them instead of them trying to give me a good customer service.
Placed an order for a ring on 27th Dec 17, nothing arrived. Complained to customer services several times, no one replied. Rang customer services, the number cut off. Complained of Facebook, and they marked me as spam. No customer services. Avoid this ** organization. Today is 11th Feb 18.
After buying a new pair of Gucci Ace Tiger leather sneakers at the Gucci store in Geneva, Switzerland within 5 days (my son wore them twice by the way) the red and green snake skin broke off the back of both of the shoes simply by the fact that the jeans sat on them. Gucci staff assured me this was absolutely normal (that they looked like crap Chinese rip-off's within a week) and that this style was indeed more sensitive than the other styles. They also suggested that it was simply his fault. After I insisted that he did not chew on them and that they investigate further, they agreed to send the shoes to Italy. 3 weeks later the verdict: It's normal wear and tear (I had no further comment to that).
This new style is badly designed and far too sensitive to sell to unsuspecting clients who are expecting an exceptional quality product. Buyer beware - simply do not buy. You would be better off with a standard leather well known sports shoe instead of an overpriced pair of cheaply made Gucci sneakers at 590 Swiss Francs (632 USD). A very disappointed son and extremely angry customer!

I bought a belt from the Gucci online website in August and the belt came fast although it didn't fit and I decided I wanted a refund not an exchange. On the invoice I clearly stated refund yet another belt came! I then took it into the Gucci store in November and they said they could return it on my behalf and would take up to 3 weeks. It is now the end of January and I still haven't received my money back after trying to phone plenty of times with no answer, no replies to my email. I went into the store again and they said they will try speed up the process but still no money received!
I've ordered an eyewear on Gucci.com and I had payment by wire transfer to Gucci bank account. And it doesn't send my eyewear. I tried to call but nobody answer me, on that telephone number that they show on their website. I've send several emails but with no reply... For 3 weeks. My money were charged from my account, but I have nothing. Not even an email... So bad customer services, GUCCI. I don't know what to do to get my money back or my eyewear. I don't know where to talk.
Purse color of choice was not on display. They took it out from inside. I liked the color so I purchased the purse thinking that I bought a real or original Gucci purse because I'm in a Gucci store. When I checked the purse no Gucci brand inside and it doesn't even have anything in the purse that tells me it's a Gucci. So I'm not sure if I purchased an original Gucci. I'm planning to return it but they said no return only exchange. I'm not comfortable exchanging the product for anything else because I don't think they are selling original Gucci. I am demanding for a refund but they wouldn't let me do it. I'm writing this review to seek assistance from the consumer affair to get a refund. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
I purchase the sneakers from 5th Ave Flagship Store and was given the wrong size. I didn't know until I got home so I called the store back to let them know that I was given the wrong size. So the right size was put on hold for me and we agreed that I would come the next morning to pick it up so when I came the next morning to pick up my sneakers they told me they couldn't find it so then the associate checked the system and he saw that another associate sold my sneakers that were on hold so I spoke to a manager. They tried to get me to buy the shoes online knowing I was going on vacation the next week. They told me it would get to me in time. I said no I want them to get it from another store and I'll pick it up, they put the order in to another store to have them ship it and they said they would contact me, nobody contacted me within 4 days so I called the store.
I even text the manager because she gave me her number and said to contact her. She didn't answer her text so I continue to call the store. Nobody knew what was going on. I was on hold for 20 minutes. The phone disconnected so I called back and the original associate that was helping me with the sneakers and sold me the wrong size and the manager that try to fix the problem told me the sneakers never came from the other store because they never sent it so I just asked for a refund so now I'm waiting for my refund but I went to the other Gucci store in Macy's Herald Square and they couldn't find the shoes.
This associate also brought out a size 10 box but when he looked inside it was the size 10.5 that I needed so I tried it on. I wanted to make sure it was the right size, it was so I bought it and when I got home and took the shoes out of the box there were a lot of creases on both shoes and more and the shoe that I didn't try on and I looked at the bottom of the sole of the shoe and it was clearly dirty and look like somebody cleaned it off so at that point I figured those shoes were worn most likely returned and another hint was that it was in the wrong box so I was sold a pair of used shoes for $630. I will be returning these when I get back.
Has anyone had any issues with the Gucci Ace sneaker with the Ayers foxing snakeskin at the heel area peeling away? My son is on his second pair. The first pair Gucci replaced as they say on a "GOODWILL" gesture as the shoes had only been worn for a few hours and this happened. The second pair had only again been worn for a few hours on a flight from Glasgow to Italy. My son had a pair of shorts on to travel so the shoes did not come into contact with jeans or trousers! Gucci sent the shoes for inspection and are saying they won't exchange the shoes as the material has been accidentally scratched and the material being fragile leather! They have told me that the material will curl up and isn't durable to heat or flex!! Both of which will happen with shoes worn on feet! I think the material isn't fit for purpose but Gucci say different. Has anyone had problems with this snakeskin like finish on these sneakers? Cheers.
I've ordered a pair of slippers on Gucci.com with half size bigger than my regular size, as they recommend on their website, but when I received them I realized that I'll need a size bigger, not a half one. So I've returned my package to exchange the size. After 2 weeks, I didn't receive any notification from them, about that they received the package, even if it was successfully delivered as the UPS confirmed, something... A sign. I tried to call but nobody answer me, on that telephone number that they show on their website, I've send several emails but with no reply... For 2 weeks. My money were charged from my credit card, but I have nothing. Not even an email... So bad customer services, GUCCI. I don't know what to do to get my money back or my slippers with the right size. I don't know where to talk.
Purchased a pair of sneakers. They were missing a piece on the laces the two metal GG signs. We called customer service immediately and return the sneakers via FedEx. They received the sneakers a few days later and promised a refund in 7 to 10 days. Call back on the 11th business day and they continue to play games. I asked to speak to a manager several times. Was placed on hold for more than 20 minutes Then the phone disconnected. Called back and was told no manager will be available until late.
I can't believe a company As large as Gucci would only have one person to process refunds as manager. I then called back on the 12th. This is the talk with the manager and they stated at the refund we be processed on that day and I would have to wait another three business days to see the refund On my Credit card. As of today still no refund apply to the credit card. Still waiting. I have spent a lot of money with this company Gucci in past years but I will never ever again purchase anything Gucci.
I have never written a negative review before but this situation demanded that I warn others. I ordered shoes, they sent me a belt. I called them and after speaking to three different people, I received a return label. The next morning I drove 25 minutes to return the item at FedEx because they said they could not arrange for it to be picked up at my house. They said the shoes would come in 3-5 business days. I called the next morning after not receiving a tracking number and they said that they couldn't even process the order until they received the belt. AFTER they received the belt, it would take 3-5 business days just to process the order. AND then they said they could not expedite shipping.
When speaking to the manager I repeatedly stated that she should not be apologizing for sending me the wrong item, but should be apologizing because they did NOTHING to rectify the situation. The manager seemed like she was just reading off a script. I canceled the order and AGAIN the refund can't even be processed until they get the belt. After that it will still take several days. They are punishing me basically for getting the belt - they have to wait until they get the belt to see what? That I didn't destroy it? I will never shop with them again. I have never had such poor customer service.
I purchased Gucci Bloom slides in April 2017 for a trip, 3 months later they are peeling on both shoes on the side, how is this possible for a pair of $280 slides??? I looked here first and seen similar issues. I will contact Gucci tomorrow.
I placed an order with Gucci.com in July 20, 2017, and it was canceled without any notification. I called for the reason of cancellation and was told by a customer service supervisor because they cannot verify I made the purchase as billing address is correct and credit card company has approved the transaction. And a more detail reason was that the email address I provided did not contain my first name and last name.
I purchased a Gucci gg belt from House of Fraser in Glasgow. After wearing the belt for 3 hours I noticed marks on the belt. I phoned straight away to House of Fraser and explained the situation. I was advised to take it back to them which I did on a 2 hour round trip. I was advised it would have to be sent away for analysis which could take 6 to 8 weeks. After 2 I received a call to say it had been determined it was my own doing even though I had not been out the house with it on. I was also told if I wanted to pay another £80 on top of the £230 I had already paid they would replace it. I refused and asked to speak to a manager who said because of the short time I had it as a gesture of goodwill she would replace it.
Another 2 hour round trip later I got my replacement. Wore it today and I have literally watched the marks appearing before my eyes but as I was advised if it happened again I would not get another belt. I am now stuck with a defective belt that I have worn for a total of 4 hours this time. I will not purchase another item from Gucci and would not recommend to anyone else either.
I Have a few pairs of slides so this was a horrible shock to my father's day... I purchased a pair to have them in time for father's day. I received them and they look worn!! Are you kidding me? Since they have an animal on it should I assume it has dirt on it to make it more realistic? Looks more like they been used to walk through a construction site. Even if I wanted to overlook this they didn't even get the size right either. I still have them packaged and all but of course seeing the horrible customer service Gucci has they'll chalk it up to it being "worn". Let's see how I can get this handled because clearly they have made a mockery of me.
Gucci is well known as a luxury brand for its trending taste, vivid fashion and leather goods. I was on the HK airport and decided to visit Gucci. I saw a watch which was phenomenal, unprecedented, astounding and classic. I had my eyes on it and went to the sales representative and asked her about it. She said it's a Unisex watch and it's their latest collection and the next moment I was searching the watch online and comparing USD and HKD price.
I left that day from the airport and came back to India and told my father about it and told him I want to buy a watch. So he told his brother who was coming the next day from HK Airport to India. My uncle got the watch for me without checking the piece thoroughly (My uncle is less aware of brands and its products). He gave me the next day. Excitedly, I opened my watch and saw there's a manufacturing defect (pictures attached) and the next moment I was calling Gucci... and I have contacting them from 2 months now and asking them update for the exchange.
Meanwhile, I opened gucci.com to search new products and saw that my watch has been removed from the Men's segment to Women entirely because more of its feminine style. When I had bought this watch, it was suppose to be in Men and Women Section on the website gucci.com (Unisex). I am disgusted by customer service and the long wait. I am tired sending emails again and again and follow up for my watch from 2 months. As a result of such a disappointing customer service, failed the standard of meeting the expected quality and customer satisfaction, I have asked the customer service representatives to refund me for the watch or I'll take legal action against the company. I would appreciate if readers post their views on my complaint.
Purchased Gucci Guilty Black while traveling from Ghana to Accra. The bottle is not having a Spray Head and not able to find out Customer Care address also where I can lodge a complain. It seems like one should not buy the Perfume Bottles from Airport as with the defective bottles. It would be difficult to contact Gucci People. If they are reading it please respond to **. I have a photographs of the bottle and bills as well which I can attach to them for supporting. It never happens but this time it is a very bitter experience. I am based in India. Hopefully will get some reply out of it.
I received the new men's Gucci slippers that cost $190 plus tax as a gift from my girlfriend. Only to find out that I can no longer wear them after the second time because every time I walk in them the rubber rubs on the top of my feet and make me bleed! These slippers are extremely poorly made! The green and red came scuffed up with lines that will never go away and it is extremely easy to get new baby scuffs on them as well! They aren't even as strong as other well known cheaper name brands, not even comparable to the quality of a slipper costing $39.99.
They are ruining my feet & I refuse to not open my mouth about this matter because people shouldn't have to pay such top dollars for a slipper made by Gucci a supposed well-known brand! They feel as if they were manufactured by cheap shops in China! How can you not put a cushion inside of the material? The slipper is dangerous to wear & shouldn't be sold! I believe it should fall under the defective category & should be recalled!!! I uploaded a picture of what my feet look like after wearing the slippers for about 8 hours in!!
I can't find any reviews on Gucci website to know more about the product I want to buy. Can't talk to any staff online while I need consultation. I look for reviews on Facebook, Twitter but Gucci never reply anything. Do I have to go to physical store to ask directly??? Too inconvenient for the digital age... Too bad so I decided to buy from other brands' website offering online service.
Very disappointed of this brand, and the quality of their products; I bought a masterpiece in Paris in October 2015 and it just worked for about 2 months, I know that sometimes products can fail, as a handmade product I know that we are humans not robots and that's ok. What pisses me off is their customer service in Mexico, it is rude, unpolite, and aggressive. After almost 3 months analyzing my masterpiece they wrote me today saying me that my masterpiece was opened by an unprofessional service or by me, and that is not true, why would I do such a stupid thing?? Knowing that the masterpiece has its own 2 year warranty, it is absurd!!!
As far as I know the only ones that have opened my masterpiece are them. So far I am so disappointed of this brand, to me a luxury brand means quality and customer service; I haven't receive any of them so far, just unprofessional services. To me GUCCI is not a luxury brand, they just sell cheap tacky products at high prices. Stay away from this brand!
On September 24, 2016 I walked into a Gucci store to send out my watch for a battery replacement. In January 2017 I spoke to someone in the store, that person could only tell me that my estimate was in. I never asked for an estimate, it wasn't broken I just needed a new battery! I was told that a manager needed to follow up with the repair center and they would call me back. A week later I called on February 3, 2017. I called the store and requested that my watch be returned to me. I was told that the repair department was backlogged for months and that they were sorry for the delay. The best that they could do was get it back from the repair center and fix it locally at no charge to me. I told her I just wanted it back asap, whether it was fixed or not.
It is now February 23 and I visited the store today. The woman that greeted me was more interested to know if Gucci called me to warrant my visit, than helping me. How's about I wanted to buy a scarf for my trip to Napa in 2 weeks, so while I'm there I'll check on my watch! She never got to help me with a purchase, because after feeling like my watch is being held hostage, she pretty much said there's nothing anyone can do about it. She also threw in this bit of information, "it's no one's fault here at our store, but if you repair your watch anywhere else, your warranty is no longer valid". Really, so who's telling the truth? The woman that told me she would get the watch back and repair it locally free of charge, or the one in front of me?! How can such a high end store allow this to happen? I said don't fix it and give it back, and there is a delay to do that too!!
Updated on March 3, 2017: On February 24, 2017 I wrote about my service misfortune. I am happy to report that as of March 3, 2017 my watch is back in my hands with a new battery. Well, it works and no I don't know where exactly it was repaired.
I purchased the Web belt with double G from Las Vegas store. Then, when I came back to Los Angeles, I realized that I also wear high waisted jeans and I need a smaller size for the belt. I didn't even use it once and just cut the tag because the tag was too big to try it on my pants. Anyway, with my receipt, and less than a month, I went to the Topanga Mall store and they said they cannot exchange it because it didn't look like resell-able to them. The reason is that the leather part doesn't look clean to them.
First of all, I never wore it, not even once. Secondly, when I purchased the belt, they folded it in a nice Gucci pouch and a bag which already gave wrinkles to the leather (in other words, they folded the leather part). Lastly, why are we relying on a subjective review of a manager especially in a situation that I paid 500$ for the belt and never ever wore it. On top of it, I just wanted to exchange it so I can actually use something I paid good amount of money. Knowing that many other companies can provide GREAT customer service, I find Gucci's customer service very poor and company oriented. I would rather buy these kind of goodies from department stores like Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus just because of their exceptional customer service that Gucci doesn't have.
I am a regular client of Gucci, but I have to say that because of their horrible customer service I will no longer purchase from them. I've had 2 upsetting experiences in the past week. 1st- I purchased a pair of Espadrilles online, the same size all of my other Gucci Espadrilles are, they arrived and didn't fit. I called to see if I can get a bigger size. They said I would have to PAY for shipping if I wanted to ship them back and then I can repurchase the shoes after they issue me a refund??
I asked if I can return in a store, they told me no store had them. I went to my nearest Gucci store and they had them. The exchange was simple. That same day I purchased a wallet at the store, which they didn't have. They told me I'd be receiving it by Tuesday. I never received a tracking # or anything. When I called they said that they don't send tracking numbers to protect the package??? And that someone had to be home. Am I supposed to be at home all day waiting?? When I can simply track MY package and make sure someone is there when it's in transit. Then If no one is home at the time, I have to call customer service, give permission to change shipping to a FEDEX store and wait until that gets done. Gucci seriously needs to improve their technology.
I recently purchased a GG Marmont quilted shoulder bag from the Gucci boutique in Florence, Italy. My husband and I were sightseeing, so we were dressed comfortably but not sloppily. We're both professionals in our 30s. I'm an attorney, and he's a senior manager at a prestigious consulting firm. I've purchased numerous premier designer bags and in fact was carrying one that day. I'm not a novice shopper of luxury goods who is pitching a fit because her unrealistic expectations were not met. I don't expect the staff to be groveling or overly ingratiating. I simply expect politeness and respect. My husband and I work and spend leisure time in Manhattan and regularly visit high-end retailers there. I can honestly say I've never been treated the way I was at this Gucci boutique. My husband and I are young looking, but by no means do we look like kids.
Upon entering the store, we were greeted. Then a security guard who was at the door followed us into the main showroom. Then he followed us up the stairs. He closely shadowed us everywhere we went. It wasn't even subtle. It was clear we were being followed because they had decided that we were a shoplifting risk. I've never been treated in such a fashion at any high-end boutique and am amazed that Gucci allows such behavior from its staff. While in Florence, we also visited the Panerai boutique and were treated graciously. We purchased items in luxury boutiques in Rome and had a great experience. It wasn't any sort of cultural or linguistic misunderstanding (In fact, I lived for several months in Italy in the past and am quite familiar with its language and customs).
I wish I hadn't purchased the bag at that particular boutique, but we were leaving Florence the next day and purchasing the bag in Italy meant a savings of almost 25% after the VAT refund. It was too good a bargain to pass up, but even still I regret purchasing it there. I've given Gucci two stars because the bag is fantastic, but the shopping experience was insulting. Part of the fun of purchasing a bag for two thousand dollars is going into the boutique, being given a drink and interacting with a knowledgeable and gracious staff. That is totally lacking at Gucci, at least the one in Firenze.
Received a Gucci bag for Christmas 2015. After 6 months of use the handle broke. Took it in to store # 30 for repairs. Repairs took 3 months and many phone calls later was told waiting on parts from Italy. Rec’d bag back after 3 months. Use bag for 1 month and the handle broke again. The piping also unravel from the bag as the leather came undone. Customer service trying to tell me I pull the piping out. Now why would I do that? Would expect better product and service for a bag that cost over 2K. Beware Gucci does not stand by their product. Saw all the other review with the same problem. Will never buy another Gucci product again.
Updated on 02/15/2017: Following up on my previous review on my purchase from Gucci Dec 2015. I am beyond frustrated for a bag that cost 2K that I got to use for 6 months. Use bag for 6 months the handle broke. Took bag in for repairs at store # 30... Took 3 months and numerous phone call to be told waiting on parts to come from Italy. Don't understand what parts is coming from Italy as when I received the bag back all they did was sew the 2 pieces of leather together... 1 month later the sewn pieces came apart again also the piping at the bottom of the bag came apart... Took the bag back to store # 30 on 12.21.16 again for repairs... Their customer service was the worst I have ever seen... Told me that I rip the piping out of the bag, I told her all I want is for them to replace the bag and was told it was discontinued... She took pictures and said it would take 6-8 weeks...
I call today 2/15/17 and still they have no clue what is going on with this bag and told me to call back in 6 weeks... Style # 323671A00JG1000 is the bag. All I want is for Gucci to replace this faulty bag that was sold to me in the first place... After you buy a product from Gucci do not expect any kind of help from them... You are on your own after sales... For such a high end company their product sure is low end...
I have own my grey metallic Gucci handbag for less than a year, used it a few times, until strap handle ripped and chain broke off. So, on 05/06/2016 I took it to Gucci store#716 to have it send off for repair at their only repair facility in the entire country. It took until I reached out to them once again and again to get a response on 09/13/2016 with a notice to pay $85 payment repair so I did on same day. Since then, It now has been a little over 3 months and per repair Dept, my hand bag it's still waiting to be repaired.
I'm deeply disappointed with this, such a prestigious company, running a complete mess at their repair facility. As a GUCCI consumer, PLEASE DO NOT USE GUCCI to SEND YOUR PRODUCTS IN FOR REPAIR. It would totally lose its value, since it will be on hold at repair facility for over 7 months. My intention with this, is for GUCCI to stand for all of us, customers who have a product waiting/holding at their repair facility get it send back to us. And make up for lost time, and product value with some type of compensation. I hope we can be heard and taken care of. Thanks.
I am appalled that I've been waiting six months for Gucci to repair my bag. I've called the company a total of 25 times and visited the Gucci store 5 times to inquire about my handbag. They stated that they're waiting for a piece from Italy for the last six months. I'm done with Gucci and will be taking legal action. I am frustrated and disappointed at this point and will not be buying anything from Gucci ever again.
I ordered a $350 belt online from Gucci that I liked less than another that was "backordered" in order to get it quickly. Three weeks later, still no belt. I checked my account today and learned that my order is also backordered, though I never got any notice of that. When I wrote customer service to ask when it's coming and complain, they responded that they don't know when it's coming and it's out of their control (what?). No apology, acknowledgment of bad service, or offer to do anything to make up for the terrible customer service. Not impressed, certainly will not order from Gucci online again.
