$700 pricetag, add GST and the odd HDMI cable etc it would have come to over a $800 purchase I guess. Not massive but not peanuts either.
Asked the young salesperson if I could buy one of these, pointing at the unit. He said he would go get a person who could assist me. Guy came back and began serving other customers, fair enough, then another older salesperson came walking along, ignored me and began serving numerous other customers while I stood there watching.
Now I am not an exceptionally impatient person but eventually I wandered off to find somebody else to assist me, asked a salesperson at another counter if he could tell me who the manager was. He pointed to the guy that had supposedly been asked to come and assist me, so I said thank you and walked out the door.
I am beginning to expect poorer customer service in Auckland, it seems to be a steady decline as there are so many customers lining up these days that you apparently don't have to give a damn if they get good service or not, there will always be more coming in the door.
What do you all do if the service is poor, wait around in zombie mode, complain to somebody, or just walk away?
- as a footnote, I walked straight into another nearby retailer and found the same product for $250 less than the Farmers price, so I ended up feeling a lot better at the end of the day :)
