Last November I was due to receive my online shopping order from Sainsbury’s. It didn’t arrive, causing me great inconvenience as I had run out of nappies for my toddler.
After a long period on hold, I was told the delivery would not be happening, but with no explanation.
I was assured someone would call the next day to arrange a new slot. No one did. This happened twice more over the next five days with promised calls that never came.
I eventually asked for my money back and was told this would be credited back to my card. It wasn’t.
I complained via the website, and wrote to head office, but two months later have had no reply.
