Carpet Corner Review

BAIT & SWITCH – It’s a pretty slick trick, to get someone to pick out a product in your showroom and then tell them “Sorry, that sign was wrong, it’s really going to cost a third more than that. But I can give you a break by helping you rip off your local city tax base.” | My wife and I visited Carpet Corner on Noland Road on Sunday to purchase carpeting for my home during the Karastan Sale. After examining a number of options, my wife and I selected Karastan ‘Willow Crest’ which was on display advertised to be on sale for ‘$4.19 per square foot installed with pad.’ | When I asked for the salesperson’s assistance in ordering 800+ square feet of carpeting, he told me that the price on the sign was not the price of the carpet. I told him, “Of course it is, look here at the sign.” He then said the sale sign was wrong, removed it and wandered away. | I tracked the salesperson down again and asked him directly if he planned to honor the sale price posted on the display. He replied that he could not sell the carpet for that, because he was not the boss. I then asked if he would contact ‘the boss’ for approval, he went away and then came back a few minutes later and said he’d left a message for the boss and expected a call back. | On Monday, I called the store and asked to speak with the Store Manager, Chris. I explained the situation to Chris, who stated he had spoken with the salesperson about the matter, and no, he would not sell me the carpet at the price advertised, because that was a mistake and he would lose money. Chris offered to provide me with the carpet at “a better price than anyone else” and proceeded to do some calculations. | Chris’ bottom line was that he would sell me the carpet for $5.75 per square foot installed “as if I were a contractor,” so I could avoid paying sales tax. Not even close, pal. | I think it’s a pretty slick trick, to get someone to pick out a product in your showroom and then tell them “Sorry, that sign was wrong, it’s really going to cost a third more than that. But I can give you a break by helping you rip off your local city tax base.” | I have never before experienced such an obvious bait-and-switch operation in a retail setting. I think Rochelle would be very disappointed.

Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
