I went to Joyce Mayne in the new home maker center at Maroochydore for the first time on the weekend and was very unimpressed with the customer service. I was looking for a new laptop when I passed a sales assistant who asked me what I was looking for. I told him i was after an ASUS laptop 4gb ram, 500gb hard drive with decent processor. He showed me one that was $580. I told them I had seen that same laptop cheaper in a catalog from another store and asked if I could get a better deal. They asked me where I had seen it cheaper and I told them in the courier mail newspaper. Replied "That's not a local newspaper, and if you cant remember which store I cant match the price" The way they said it was blunt and rude, did not sound friendly or helpful at all. I told my partner who was with me that I was not buying anything there because of the unfriendly service. I went up the road and got the same laptop for $500 with excellent service. The poor sales rep was flat off their feet with a dozen other customers but was able to help us out and still maintain an enthusiastic, friendly mood. I thought Joyce Mayne would of been a good store to shop at, even with their TV ads forever promoting great deals, they still couldn't do me one.
