I bought a new living room suit about 3 yrs ago. Saleprice was listed for 995.00. Ended up paying 2.000.00 time I got it paid for. Had it about a month and the cushions started splitting apart. They sewed um up. About 6 months after that the wood broke loose inside the couch. They came and got it and kept it a couple of days and fixed that. The other day it broke loose again and I had to fix it this time. Had to nail it up. Little thin wood in it. After you get it paid for thers no warranty on it. Now it looks like its 15 yrs. old and I'v been easy on it. Their appliances are better, knock on wood.

About 12 years ago I bought a used set of mattress and box-springs from their pineville store. After sleeping on then a week or so my baby and I was getting theses little bites all over us. Went to the doctors bedbugs. So I called the guy and told him that the mattress set had BUGS and that I wanted a different set or put the money toward a new set. He told me NO! I called the Bell county health department and it is illegal to sell used mattress and box spings in the state of KY.I told the guy where I bought them at and the problem of bugs. After I hung up I received a call from Crawford's about 20 minutes later, asking if I would except a brand new set no charge. They deliver them that evening and took the bug ridden ones away. Never bought nothing from them again!!!!

My wife and I have bought a tv,fridge,freezer,couch,chair, rocker recliner and an entertainment center from crawford's in the last 3 yrs, and have not had any problem's with the furniture, appliance's or the crawford's.

There's not many place's that I know of that will carry thier own financing these day's. I think that this area is lucky to have a store that will take a chance on poor people.

The crawford's are nice people and are providing a service that I for one am very thankful for.

the only reason that he will take a chance on the so called poor people is because he wants them checks..thats all he wants.he will rip people off when he can.he is a money hungry person.i know a few things on this man.and none can i say are good.

Gosh, If you think they are ripping you off or don't like to make payments there then I guess you shouldn't shop there. I haven't ever heard of them twisting your arm to buy there furniture, appliances or anything else there. And I'm sorry I just can't believe they sold used mattress!!

Oh Please Money_Credit. I've shopped there before and I have even bought a mattress from them. It was not used it was new and in plastic. I just don't know why people bash other people when they don't even shop there. Also, I've never seen any used furniture there either. I guess the only reason why some of them are bashing them is because they own them money and are mad because of them wanting to be paid...They are not in business to give it away... If you can't afford to make the payments then either save your money until you can pay cash or go to a yard sale and buy your furniture....

They way I see it, you know what they charge going in. If you don't like their prices, stay away. You always pay more for things when you get them on credit or buyhere/payhere, thats just the American way. Any other furniture place around here is the same way. In my opinion, if you don't like them or the things they are selling then simply stay away. I am sure it will not hurt their feelings at all. And as far as them taking from poor people, these people realize what they are buying and the payment expected of them when they go in..it is just as much their fault as the Crawfords. All they are doing is getting their $ for their furniture..Thats the way it works! I have purchased many items from them, still lokes new, not broken down and I have never had one problem out of them. To each be own but you dont have to trash people if you dont like they way they do things then just simply STAY OUT OF THEIR STORE.

well i myself plan on going there, i also went to colorama are they money hungry to cause they want their payments arrons is a great place to i rent from them i guess everyone will call all these places money hungry but they just want to be paid, they are a business. and i give my business to these places .i bought a couch from zions it tore within a few days of getting it . and i didnt even let the kids sit on it lol . but it is a rental place you dont like it let them come take it back . but everyone likes to talk bad about everything and everyone wish everyone was like me i dont complain that much and i am always happy happy happy . lifes to short to b**ch and complain all the time. just think if you needed something really bad like a fridge and didnt have the thousand dollars to get it and that was the only way you could get another one , be glad there is rental places out there that have low monthly payments that people can afford.

Well, got a living room suite from them two months ago and also a curio cabinet. When they put together the curio cabinet they stripped out a screw and when you open it (it slides) the screw head cut a really bad long place in the wood. I called them and told them about it and she said get a screw and a wood marker and fix it yourself!!! Can you believe that?? I called the same dag gone day it was delivered! I told her to come and get it along with the other junk I had gotten. The couch makes a loud screeking noise within one week of use, and is mis-sewen. I won't buy from them again.(To the post above his used stuff is out in the buildings outside!!)
