Does anyone else find it interesting that most of the positive comments on this page about the Great American Home Store were written in the span of a couple of days by reviewers whose member names end with "123"? It seems to me that some of their employees were logging in and generating fake reviews to boost their overall rating, which is sad. Over the years, I have purchased a few odds and ends from the Great American Home Store. My first purchase was a cheap, tweed recliner for my college dorm room about six years ago. I paid $299 for that recliner, and that thing is a champ. It has withstood two moves and numerous other forms of abuse and still holds up like it did the first day I received it. My second purchase was a queen-size sleigh bed, which I bought on sale for $699 about four years ago. I had to reinforce the portion of the frame that supports the mattress with a little MacGyver ingenuity, but it too is still in pretty decent shape. The pillow top mattress and box spring set are very comfortable and squeak-free, which is great. My most recent purchase was a dining room set (can't remember what I paid for it because it rarely gets used), but assembly was a snap. It is a very sturdy table and none of the chairs wobble or squeak when shifting positions at the table. *I must note, however, that I picked up each of my items from the warehouse personally. I did not have a single piece delivered. If you have the available resources to pick up your items yourself, please do so, so that you may inspect the items before leaving the warehouse. Overall, the Great American Home Store is one of my first "go-to" stores when I need some new furniture, and the sales staff are generally quite friendly. They have a wide selection from which to choose, and their products have held up so far for me. Again, I do find it odd that someone has logged on and artificially inflated their ratings, so take their overall score for what it's worth.
So, never in my life have I been to a Fred's. Well, I went to the brand new one on Church Road this morning to rent a Rug Doctor. I was very pleasantly surprised!!! I was only in that store for about 15 min and I could already tell that I could get into A LOT of trouble there. They had excellent costumer service, very clean store, and the same great products as other stores at a fraction of the price. lol, I sound like an infomercial, but it was GREAT, highly recommend :) !!! Oh, and I have never taken the time to write a review on anything before, so they deffinately impressed me. Very satisfied customer, will be returning!!!
Have done business with the store several times and everyone is always pleasant and helpful. Any problems have always been dealt with promptly and courteously. I've been given special deals, made returns, and even had a chair replaced after living with it for several months. Even the service men that came to the house were pleasant and helpful. Nothing but praise for this store!
