EQ3 is a chain furniture store throughout North America that's basically one step above IKEA, but not quite the level of expensive designer furniture - kind of budget designer furniture.
Anyhow, I bought a bunch of lamps and chairs for the new studio at EQ3. They didn't inform me that they didn't actually have stock of the items I bought until after I ran my credit card. They said all the items would be in, in about a week. 3 weeks later, the items I purchased actually arrived, all be it, one of the lamps was faulty. Whatever, right? Small inconvenience but I felt that it was a little underhanded to take my money first, and then inform me that they were out of stock. The only reason I agreed to wait was that our studio was still a month out from opening, so it wasn't a panic.
At the same time, I decided to order a leather couch and a suede chair for the waiting room of the studio. Quite beautiful furniture but the price was pretty up there for EQ3 with about $3000 for both pieces. They informed me that it would take about 6 to 8 weeks for the furniture to be built and then delivered.
8 weeks seemed excessive, as I've bought designer furniture before and had delivery in under 3 weeks.
Flash forward 10 weeks and my furniture is still not here, although we've been operating for a month without proper seating in our waiting area. I call and I call to bug them and finally, they say my order has arrived and I can expect delivery to the studio on Wednesday, June 7th.
I get a call this afternoon and they tell me that there was a shipping mistake and my furniture hasn't arrived and there will be no delivery. So it's been 10 weeks and no furniture in sight, and possibly no furniture even made for us.
So, draw your own conclusions before deciding to step into EQ3 to purchase anything.
