I bought a solid pine dining set table & 6 chairs on Argos recently (it was posted on HUKD reduced from £250 to £110).
It was self assembly and during assembly I set aside 3 damaged or poor quality chair parts. This meant I was left with 5 chairs instead of 6. I rang Argos and they told me they would send out replacement parts when it comes back in stock. They now tell me 6 weeks later the item is discontinued, and my options are to buy a different table/chair set to the value of £110 and if it costs more I send them a cheque for the balance. Or they can collect and refund.
The problem I have is I cannot buy another dining set for £110 on their website as they are all over £250. Secondly I dont want them to collect and refund me as I spent 4 hours (hard graft!) assembling the set in the first place.
I would like to keep the set and could manage with 5 chairs but what sort of refund should Argos give me if I went down that route?
Any advice appreciated.
