Laziness of a cashier screws me out of money
I got two different items made by Stone Care International. One was a stain remover and didn't work, it made the stains worse. When I was alerted the manufacturer, I had to show proof of purchase. That's when I saw TWO of the higher priced Stone Care Intl items, NOT one of each of the different products. I can't return, or even let the manufacture know because according to my receipt I bought TWO Quartz Clean & Shine, NOT ONE Clean & Shine and ONE Granite & Stone Stain Remover. This means that the cashier charged me for the MORE expensive item!!

        Floor model pros and cons
        The floor model dishwasher I bought was on sale for a great price for an excellent machine. It was a savings of about $300 from the sale price out of warehouse and I saved the $29 delivery fee since it was required that I pick it up from the store myself. I was aware that the drain hose was missing at the time of purchase so the associate gave me a universal hose out of their stock for no charge. Everything is good at this point. However, the universal hose did not work with the drain pipe on the dishwasher. It was either too big or too small. The correct hose had an elbow that allowed fitment in the space available. To their credit, the associates worked to try to solve the problem by taking a hose from another similar floor model but it too was missing. So I ended up ordering one online at my expense. Maybe, if I had pressed the issue, they would have bought it for me, but it wasn’t a big issue for me. However, it did delay the installation for several days and trips to the store and searching for the correct hose was inconvenient. This is the risk you take with a floor model purchase. In exchange for a great price, you might have some inconvenience. Also, be aware that if your dishwasher is a direct wire connection instead of a plug in outlet, their installation does not include the direct wire connection (hard wired). You either have to do that yourself or hire an electrician. That would have been an unpleasant surprise if I had paid the $169 they wanted for installation. Fortunately, the associate warned me about this, though he almost forgot to mention it.

            Great, helpful customer service!
            I needed 3 different items that were not all together in the store. The gentleman that helped me came over as soon as I was looking for item #1. He took me to the other locations for the other 2 items making my trip fast and complete. Will shop here again! Also, beautiful flower/garden section. So much to choose from!

                Unbelievable employees
                I went in the store for gardening supplies. I was greeted with a smile and “DO YOU NEED HELP OR CAN I HELP YOU FIND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR?” This happened all throughout the store.

                  Lousy customer service!
                  I needed help with cabinet hardware but finding a sale associate to assist me was impossible.
                    Great employees- especially in the lumber area
                    I was doing a home project and needed some lumber cut. Bennett made sure I had quality pieces, measured and then cut them. He helped load them in my cart. I always find plenty of helpful employees at this Home Depot
