We pretty much had no choice but to register at the Bay. They were the only large store that carried the pattern we liked, and they do have a great selection of other household items.
But man, have we had problems!
1. We only registered about a month before the wedding. It was VERY hard to find time for us to go in and do that together, so I went in and did all the paper work, and when my husband and I found some time, we went in a few days later to scan items. We spent 2 hours selectiong items for our registry, and before we left, i printed it off. Not a SINGLE item had been added. I thought maybe they had to dock the scanner and upload it, so didn’t think much, went home, and checked online.
Checked the next day. Nothing.
So we had to find more time to go back and do it all over again!
2. We have 3 gifts that are outstanding from the wedding. A place setting, 2 boxes of 4 prosecco glasses, and a set of pasta bowls and a chef’s knife. I got an email that our prosecco glasses were in, so finally last night we went in to pick them up. They bring out a giftwrapped box, and the woman notes there is only one box instead of 2. So we sign that we have recieved one of two boxes. (My husband did this, as I was down making apurchase elsewhere in the store) He comes to find me, and I look at the package and tell him that I don’t think it’s the prosecco glasses (another friend had gifted us prosecco glasses as well, and the shape of the box was wrong, and it was far too heavy). Sure enough, we get home, and it’s not the prosecco glasses we signed for, but the set of pasta bowls (and no knife). Now, fortunately the store is close to our house, but I do get a little pissy about running up there after being told our gift is in, and discovering that in fact only half of our gift is in, not to mention it’s not the right gift at all.
I like the Bay in general, but the whole process with them has been headache inducing. We’ve also gotten notices that gifts are in for pickup, only to go there and they aren’t there!
Anyone else have similar issues?
