Ok, so I’m not really the patient type anyway, so am interested in opinions on whether this is the norm in Canberra, or if it is a bit excessive.
After hunting around for some time for a recliner for my partner that wasn’t too big and wasn’t too small we eventually found one at Cusacks/Furniture One in Fyshwick and handed over our money with the promise of getting a delivery date the next week (vague comments that it might not be too long).
After a week and a half, we gave them a call to find out that it wouldn’t delivered until the end of January (approx 3 months from order).
Now to me, 3 months is on the excessive side for a piece of leather, some wood, some metal and some bolts – especially if the suite it came from was in a catalogue (I’d presume that if you advertise something, you have it).
However, I’m interested in opinions on whether we’re barking up the wrong tree and that’s the norm for ordering furniture (or even other things) in Canberra?
