Also I think it is worth saying that the staff own this company so if you want the profit to go to staff rather than some Billionaire sat in Monaco then this is another reason to use JL. That said, this is a money saving site and for that reason alone I think this is a great clearance deal.

I do hope you like it.

yes I'd also heard recently on the news alot of retail companies have been started to struggle recently and john lewis is one that has cut back on their employee share scheme or was it bonuses or something like that

Yes each year the profit gets divided up and paid to each employee. This year they limited it to a smaller bonus to invest in the company. I don't work there by the way - but it's an ethical company and this is important to me.

That's precisely the way they prefer it to be. Most people assume it means what it says. It doesn't!

well when I heard it I was thinking about it and thought doesn't that mean they will always oversell you things ie not work for the customer but for the company? then i thought well maybe I just don't understand it.
but maybe I suppose if it's meant to mean quality and self sustanining businesses like fairtrade or whatever then I guess that would make sense then

It means that if they know another retailer is underselling them (selling the same item at a lower price) they'll lower their own prices to match that other retailer. Except that in reality they don't operate the policy. They'll sometimes match prices for an individual purchaser, subject to stringent terms and conditions, but even when they do that they rarely lower the price for other customers - even though they're knowingly being undersold.

Occasionally they'll make a big thing about matching another retailer's prices, but only with certain retailers, and never on the really competitive ones. All a big con, but people believe the hype because it's John Lewis and people find it difficult to believe that they can lie through their teeth.

And did John Lewis then reduce the price on the shelf for all other customers? That's what Never Knowingly Undersold means - and that's what they rarely ever do.

I love John Lewis. Never had any problems with them. All staff are very helpful and so is customer service. Price match works great and rarely has not worked. So all in all a gem of a company to be honest in today's competitive market.

John Lewis lost me as a customer when they started refusing to honour price match. They're really little wiggly worms and can fall off the face of the high street for all I care.

They're not perfect - but name somewhere better!

At least they are British and pay their taxes - unlike numerous US companies in the UK.

Own brand stuff (therefore no direct competition) can be ridiculously expensive though.

Not a shop I want to go to personally, my mrs likes to shop in JL thinking their prices are higher so quality must be higher, probably. Never had enough staff to serve customers, or when we can find one, she is not in charge of that part or she's not the best person to help or she's dealing with something else or just take a card or whatever and go to the counter that we were told many times when there's no card or no one can help at the counter, if we give the same service in NHS like they do in JL, it be all over the news saying how appalling our services are, we go JL at least on a weekly basis just because of my Mrs likes it, not for me.

Use John Lewis often simply because they are the cheapest with a 2 year warranty which is honoured with no fuss.
Price match is always honoured too, they just check online the place with the lower price and then give you the same price with the extra warranty. I've never understood why some people think JL is an expensive shop.

The fact that compared to most other retailers they are more ethical and distribute bonuses is a plus.

"Undersold" means that someone else is selling the same thing for less money (So if Esso were selling petrol at £1 a litre, and Tesco came along and started selling it for 98p, then Tesco have undersold Esso or to put it another way Esso are being undersold). So, "never knowingly undersold" means that they will never sell anything for a price that they know is higher than someone else is selling at.

Ethical? John Lewis?

You know they buy products from illegal Israeli settlements right ? It's really nice they give some of the profits to their employees but ethical? because of just that ? no.

yeah. Ethical.

yeah I know it was gobbledegook well just goes to show my confusion over the whole thing :)
#28
I guess my whole point was I didn't really understand what undersold meant and was trying to figure it out when I first heard it but it hurt my head too much as it didn't make any sense to me so in the end I just thought oh well just another slogan that makes the company the place to shop for quality.
As I was thinking of the words under sell and thought well if someone under sells you something they would be doing you the customer a favour by selling it to you cheap ha ha.
Therefore if that was the case then there mission would be to con you.

Anyway it's been a good learning curve.
Thanks all for the education :)

Agreed - better prices, better warranties, better product knowledge, and infinitely better customer service than John Lewis. I find it difficult to forget the response from the manager of the John Lewis TV/Radio department in Oxford Street when I asked for some information about a very expensive piece of equipment - you'll need to contact the manufacturer!

Harsh, Newbold. At least you did not get a response full of BS and in any case, good as they are, Richer Sounds specialise in a niche market which John Lewis do not.

I had a nightmare trying to return a laptop to them, absolute nightmare. I barely got an apology out of them either, even though they'd tried to wiggle out of statutory obligation and I had to go to CEO to escalate it. Won't be using them again...

I think these Trustpilot scores just about sum up the difference between John Lewis and Richer Sounds - anybody buying TV/Radio/HiFi would be mad to shop at John Lewis. If ever there were a company living on its past reputation, John Lewis is it - but my guess is they'll get their payback in due course once people realise how bad they now are. Woolworth, Comet and BHS all learned the hard way.

I have price matched a number of times myself with no problems whatsoever. My Samsung TV stopped working properly after over 2 years and they replaced it under their free 4 year guarantee with a more up to date model at no extra cost as my TV was no longer in stock. They collected and delivered my TV's for free. Great Customer Service

Jl staff have always been very helpful to me and have always dealt with any faults / problems quickly and efficiently unlike other major retailers.

Don't see how you can compare Jl and richer sounds. JL is a department store selling thousands of different products, Richer sounds is a specialist shop selling TVs and home entertainment equipment
