I purchased four Modern Stacking Chairs from Target for use with our dining room table. They arrived in February 2012.
In October 2012, my husband (who, at roughly 225 pounds, does not exceed the weight limit for the chair) leaned back in his chair after supper and it cracked at the point where the back joins the seat (the back and seat are all one piece). Target said chairs could only be returned within 90 days, and gave me a name and telephone number for the manufacturer. However, there was only an answering machine at that number, and no one returned my call. I also was unable to locate any company by that name on the Internet.
I called Target back, and they offered to try to contact the manufacturer for me. I asked them to do so. Several weeks went by, and I heard nothing from Target. I called again.
Again, they told me the chairs could not be returned.
I paid about $160 for the four chairs, and they only lasted six months. Target should be ashamed of itself for (1) selling really poor-quality furniture, (2) not standing behind the furniture they sell, and (3) really lame and unhelpful "customer service."
Monetary Loss: $160.
