The site works fine. I’ve bought plenty from them. The last thing we need are fewer vendors.

Site works fine, I just find it to be overly cluttered and more of a nuisance to use then woodcraft, or rockler so I don’t shop there.

So maybe being PROFESSIONAL after wasting my time visiting the site, I could have cooled off, but I didn’t type the response.

I like the website. Now, I really like the company! Bout time I read something that is honest and not PC. Made me smile to see that, if this is true, some businesses still have a backbone.

Thanks for sharing.

He probably took offence at the “pretty useless” part.

I have no problems using that site. I understand John’s response after you screamed, ” I WILL NOT BE BACK”.

I added to my bookmarks for suppliers to keep the balance.

There is one site that never works for me, OK, I made that up.

Everything works fine on the site. It’s possible it was down for a little while when you visited. Nowadays with all the hackers and whatnot they will run a denial of service so your bandwidth runs out and no one can get to it. Or, sometimes the server the webpage is on just simply doesn’t work. Just like tools. Too many scenarios to call them out like that. I could see if it happens every time I would stop shopping there.

I once had a problem with a vendor, they sent me reciepts for my purchases but didn’t tell me what I purchased. I sent them an email telling them it might be to their advantage to include the item I purchased in the receipt and also a link to their site might increase their business.
The owner emailed me thanking me for my ideas and now the email receipt has a link to his site and an itemized list of items purchased.

If I had sent an email like yours, nothing would have been done.

I browse the site often and have never had a problem, but lets face it sometimes sites do have problems which are quickly restored. Shit happens, just wait for it to flush.

”I was on your site and noted it is pretty useless. Nothing I clicked opened. I WILL NOT BE BACK”.

Usually when one has a problem with a retailers site they attempt to contact them and let them know they’re having a problem accessing their site and they are usually specific as to the problem that they are having. That is if one truly is interested in their products. I notice that your statement that you made is more of an accusation than a request for help in navigating the website. On the bottom of their page is a tab that allows you to access customer support and within that area are phone numbers and e-mail addresses for you to contact them. If their site has a problem they usually want to know it so they can fix it and sometimes it could be the way the potential customer has their browser set. But from the way it sounds there is no way for someone as perfect as yourself to have anything out of place or not set correctly.

The day and age where the old adage of “The Customer is Always Right” is true to a point except when the potential customer is rude to the point of being obnoxious. I’m sure they’re devastated over your displeasure and refusal to return to their website.

Another reason to shop Woodworkers supply!
