What a HORRIBLE business. I sent 2 pairs of Ray Ban sunglasses to be repaired with minor issues-hinge problems. I thought it would be an inexpensive repair, since they advertised on their website saying hinge problem, $35. They quoted me $150. I can buy new sunglasses...

Shady shady shady

On the 12/1/2020, I decided to get a pair of spare eyeglasses fixed and came upon EyeglassesDepot. I filled out the form and received a postage paid label. On 12/2/2020 I received a email asking why I did not use the label. I thought that was rather odd as it had only been one day. Against my better judgement, at that point, I sent my eyeglasses. I just needed a nose pad replaced and there was a nut cap missing. I received an estimate that seemed a bit high and I almost went for it until I noticed that the cap nut was not listed. I sent a message through the website and received an answer from Sam that they did not have my order. I sent a copy of the tracking and got another email. The address line said Becky but the person that signed the email was Arsenio. He assured me that the cap nut was included. During this time I actually started getting multiple emails asking me to pay. When I actually went to pay, the price was different. I brought this to "Arsenio's" attention and he "fixed" it. I decided not to do business with them and requested my glasses back. I received another 5 emails asking for full payment and I answered one reminding the company that I just wanted my glasses back. I paid for shipping in the middle of December and I still do not have my glasses back. Several days ago I received an email asking for a tip. Outrageous! Below is a copy of the emails, newest to oldest: My name is Alex I am the owner can you call me back? I just called you. I would like to speak to you.

As I said, in all my business dealings and personal dealings with PayPal never have I been solicited for a tip. My furnace repair man, cable repair person, and plumbers do not ask for tips nor is it customary. For you to solicit a tip using the name Becky for doing nothing is outrageous and unprofessional. The fact that you have carried this on for several emails is also unprofessional. I have since read reviews about your company from several websites and they more or less say the same thing. The fact that you have answered every one of them in a condescending and patronizing manner is not surprising. Unprofessional and not subscribing to normal business practices for an eyeglass store. You must not be very busy since you have taken the time to give me such special attention.

I have never experienced a person sending an email asking for a tip, in fact, I have never had a waitress or valet ask for a tip. If I do not receive my eyeglasses by Friday, I will be lodging a complaint with the BBB and I will include the fact that you solicit tips. Not good business practices. I will also bill you for them. >>> >>> Sent from my iPhone >>> >>>>> On Jan 1, 2021, at 3:48 PM, EyeglassesDepot Sales Team wrote: >>>> >>>> Do you tell this to your waitress and your valet also? >>>> >>>> Arsenio >>>> >>>> Customer Service >>>> >>>> http://www.eyeglassesdepot.com/ >>>> >>>> From USA Toll Free: 1-86*-***-**** >>>> >>>> From UK : +442035****50 >>>> >>>> Fax Number: 1-71*-***-**** >>>> >>>> ________________________________________ >>>> From: Susan Barton >>>> Sent: Friday, January 01, 2021 2:37 PM >>>> To: EyeglassesDepot Sales Team >>>> Subject: Re: Gratuity Request for your order # 832238 by your salesperson Becky. >>>> >>>> Are you crazy?
