    Free Lakeside catalog

    http://www.lakeside.com/catalog.asp

    This is one catalog you to get, the prices are so low I couldn't believe my eyes :claps:. This will be a life saver around Christmas time "Free Catalog" is in the top of the page.

    Buyer beware, They offer wicked cheap prices but in reality the shipping is ridiculous! The won't even give you a ship price until after. They ship everything seperately instead on one box. so it looks cheap but in the end they make thier money on "shipping"--if you look on epinions.com you will see all the neg. comments, I even googled lakeside and bad and i found more. It deterred me from buying, I'm glad I checked first because I was going to buy a ton of stuff but I probably would have paid a fortune in "shipping" charges. There are many who had to 'chase down thier order' or had the order cancelled then never got notified, or loonnng waiting time, horrible customer service...stuff like that.

    SEE THE BBB REPORT I POSTED BELOW!

    I found them on the Better Business Bureau Website...Here is just a part of what goes on over there at Lakeside, I copied and pasted this part, It is not my wording.

    ***"The complaints concerned, orders not received in a timely manner and/or items arrived broken, duplicated or not the correct items. Consumers also complained of problems getting refunds and/or unauthorized closing of their accounts, bills received for items not ordered, phone lines for the company being busy and/or holding for extensive periods of time and/or no response
    BBB Definition: "no response - The company failed to respond to the complaint to written correspondence, mailed or faxed."

    When considering complaint information, please take into account the company's size and volume of transactions, and understand that the nature of complaints and a firm's responses to them are often more important than the number of complaints.

    The Bureau processed a total of 303 complaints about this company in the last 36 months, our standard reporting period. Of the total of 303 complaints closed in 36 months, 166 were closed in the last year."

    Now remember, all those "complaint numbers" are just people who contacted the BBB about it. Think of all the others who didn't contact the BBB, they just tried on thier own and cut thier losses.
    And the BBB stating "The company failed to respond to the complaint" (to the BBB) throws up a red flag for anybody

    Wow!

    Karen~Thank you so much. That is some very impressive research that I feel just saved a lot of tears at Christmas. I had not yet ordered anything and was going to await the catalog, but it would have been just my luck to get roped into this seeming nightmare.:verysad: THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    You are very welcome! I almost ordered in the summer when i got a catalog and was astounded at the prices, but I went on [url]www.epinions.com
    something i do alot when looking to buy--and found the awful feedback.
    I would hate to have you fine people here go through all that.
    I'm in Massachusetts too! In spencer right now but moving to Brookfield next week.
    Sure is nice to see the sun today after the deluge yesturday!

    Hey guys I had no clue that they did this :( .I am so glad you researched this . I was going to buy a whole bunch of stuff from these people for my kids and working on a fixed budget I thought this looked great, I guess its to good to be true. Thankyou, and I hope no one bought anything already
