Thank you so much for fitting in my aunt yesterday. At almost 99 it is hard for her to get around, and not getting easier. A kind act in a world of unkind. Thank you!!
HORRIBLE ESTABLISHMENT Background: - I've lived in Glen Ellyn since I was in 3rd grade and currently work in Chicago. - I'm a home owner and a 32 year old father with a 2 year old. I purchased a pair of $550 glasses with a prescription made out by my personal ophthalmologist for distance glass. The distance glasses work fine but I couldn't read my phone so I wanted to switch them out for reading glasses and just use them at my computer for work. They came back with the correct prescription but unfortunately my computer is just far enough away where I cant see anything using the reading glasses. I began experiencing head aches trying to use them at work and decided this was becoming too burdensome and costly so I wanted to return the glasses all together. FIRST INTERACTION: After many weeks of Glen Ellyn Vision Center (specifically Sheron) using the excuse that "the manager is unavailable" or "we didn't have your phone number correct" they REFUSED to return the glasses because the prescription didn't come from them and since they did their part now i'm out over $500 with a pair of glasses I cant use. At NO point during the purchasing process OR is it listed on their website did they mention that you cant return a pair of glass purchased at this company. This establishment clearly doesn't care about their customers or their customer service process and as long as they get your money you're SOL. "Satisfaction Guaranteed".... unless it's inconvenient for GEVC. SECOND INTERACTION: Since I work in Chicago my wife thought she would go to GEVC (not to raise a stink) and try to return the glasses I had been trying to return for a long time. She is the kindest sweetest person in the world and just wanted to ask the owners to please refund the glasses so we can use the money (over $500) towards a special needs/ speech therapy program for our 2 year old son. She went to the store and was greeted with an incredibly rude staff. The manager and the receptionist made my wife (carrying our 2 year old son) very uncomfortable. Coldly explaining they couldn't take back the glasses (for no reason). My wife left extremely upset and shocked that any business would treat their customers, especially local residence, so poorly. Clearly this establishment doesn’t care for Glen Ellyn local moms with children who may some day need glasses. THIRD INTERACTION: I called multiple times asking for a manager and the owner Martin (who never once called me back, just had his employees try to handle the situation) and the solution they provided was for me to pay a $75 refraction to fit me with a different prescription, even though the first two were correct and I just wanted my money back. I said "no", I didn't want to pay any more money to a company who has been this horrible to me and my family. I calmly explained, "if you just allow me to return the glasses ill stop calling", so Sheron said she would leave a message for Martin and he would get back to me........ Sheron said Martin was going to get back to me three times over a period of several weeks and he never called me. The leadership at the company is despicable, the managers hide from conflict while the employees just keep passing the buck. FORTH INTERACTION: I called Sheron and wanted to compromise. My solution was for me to keep the glasses but if they could just please change the lenses to the prescription of my old glasses, this way I could use them at work. Sheron said she would leave a note for Martin and he would get back to me..... Martin never got back to me. Unfortunately I went through the agonizing pain of a kidney stone and didn't call GEVC for over two weeks while I recovered. Once recovered, I called Sheron and mentioned Martin never called me back about my solution so AGAIN she would bring it up with the manager at the store and she would get back to me. FINAL INTERACTION: Joanne the store manager calls me to say that they will not be helping me and that she is going to call the police and file a report that I was harassing their business. I WAS SHOCKED. I could not believe what I was hearing......... One hour later a very nice Glen Ellyn police officer called me to fill out a civil police report. BOTTOM LINE: In 32 years of my existence I've never been treated so horribly by a business. In todays world where news and reputation travels fast, this company and the people working in it don't care about you and don't care about how they are viewed other potential customers. Do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY!
