ClockWorkOrange would not shop at Gadgets Boutique again.
Empty promises and slippery ifs and buts.
Customer purchased four cases, first two was sent 10 days later than the original estimated delivery time and the later two was posted a month later.
We made no excuse about the delay, the 5g cases was said to arrive by the 20th of December but didn't land till early Jan. This was simply unacceptable and we no longer advertise products with back orders over 10 business days.
It wasn't until we advised the customer of the extended delay we received abusive emails and foul language used to post on our Facebook page.
Second delivery claimed not received was sent with tracking by Australia post, showing item was delivered to the said address.
We haven't heard back from the customer since our last email but will email him to follow up on the outstanding claims today
The "promised delivery" which I have on record, was on or before the 20th of December, just in time for Xmas. It did not arrive nor was I notified that it wasn't going to arrive.
I asked for a refund as the promised delivery date was never met - again, I have this on record and I was refused, given excuses and still no idea of when they were going to be delivered.

Miraculously, after I posted the foul language on Gadgets Facebook, I received the two cases. The remaining two however were apparently lost by Australia Post (exactly as Efte has reviewed here) and I did not receive any notification that the second two cases had been sent by either Gadgets or Australia Post.
So far, all Australia Post can tell me is that "someone" left it on my premises, but they cannot tell me where on the premises it was left.
The only problem here really was that I had to become publicly abusive to see any action to the matter. It was either that or take them to Fair Trading.
If Gadgets Boutique were a seller on eBay, they'd already have scored a grave stone.
Gadgets Boutique have emailed me since my first review here and promised to send the two remaining cases I ordered in late December, 2012, so we'll see what happens.
