On hold for 46 mins...LISTENING TO TRUMPET MUSIC. Then a woman comes on to say they are really busy...and the partial order came really fast. I asked her if that is my fault...and where is the rest of my order. She put me on hold to come back to say...no one is answering. She didn't know what to do. I hung up. NEVER AGAIN.

Took over an hour to get any service at all since I cannot print out a label I have to make one and I will be charged for shipping again when I send it back! Customer service was awful and not helpful at all

Ordered almost $400 in pants on august 25th. Delivered in 2 shipments. 2nd shipment contained the wrong items despite having the right packing slip. Customer service issued a return labeled after almost a week of back and forth of them saying the images of proof were too large for the email. tracking the package says it was received on september 19th and 2 months later and many ignored emails later, still no refund. Catherines has stolen nearly $140 from me.

I always give a company a chance to make things right before I give a negative review as I understand in many cases it can just be a misunderstanding or a small error. That is not the case with this company. They do not answer Emails. They ignore their customers. They are notorious for bait and switch advertising and the quality of their products are sub standard. They clearly stated 50% off the product in the photo if you put in the code, I did, they didn't honor it. I called customer service. They said it doesn't apply to that product. I explained it said it did in 2 different spots in the online ad. The customer service rep said they would have some contact me. No one contacted me. They are the "walmart" of speciality clothing and they will charge you what the feel like not what they say.

All items found in stores and on the website are found in Walmart. The 30.00 bedazzled and printed shirts and moo moo dresses were top style for the 80s. They do not have stylish blazers, for the young large size career woman who will need to go from the office to a dinner party. They do have everything a person who enjoyed the late 80s and early 90's.
Update is needed on the retro sweaters. I thought they had everything but a sweater with a animal on it...and there it was..

Bought a sweater. Never worn, returned it to Catherines in person. Catherines refused a refund. Ditto for 2 pairs of pants. Won't be doing any more shopping at Catherines. Poor quality, more expensive than Amazon, Costco, Walmart Target.

How much insanity would it require to offer a starting salary of $7.25/hour while enthusiastically recommending that work clothing purchased in the store is encouraged when even at the 50% employee discounted rate 1 shirt would cost nearly 3 hours of your time at work? This is the worst kind of extortion and the only employee that would even consider this is someone with NO other choices.
Review by Sarvaia9 months ago
I experienced six problems with Catherines, Inc in 10 weeks, while spending $400.
* submitted a charge twice
* omitted application of a discount to a sale
* delivered items not ordered
* stated a coupon was worth $25 but noted 25% in data base (Pedro, CSR Super)
* promised to email a coupon but didn't do it on two ocassions ( Sandra, CSR Super)
* rude & dismissive (Thomas, Mngr)
It appears to me that mistakes are made by design by management. Buyer Beware!

Great price on sale items. Good quality. Catherine’s split the shipment so I got items as they were a available, even though my purchase was no charge for shipping!

It was absolute and utter hell. I needed the dress for a wedding this Sunday. I am traveling on Saturday. I called your CS to get the package held at UPS so I could pick it up today. Your CS said they don't do that I had to call. I called UPS and was told it is at customer center in Ontario. I drove up there in the pouring rain to find that your company allows no changes to delivery. Why did your CS tell me to call? They should know that. Now I have no dress for the wedding. I can't travel tomorrow. This fiasco is costing me $$ and sent me on a wild goose chase. I WILL NEVER SHOP WITH YOU OR ANY OTHER STORE IN YOUR COMPANY AND I WILL BE SURE TO LEAVE THAT FEEDBACK FOR THE WORLD TO SEE.

I am disabled. I order most of my items online. It was convenient to order online from catherine's and supposedly easy to return. We have a store near me so my caregiver returns items directly to the store should we need to. And we frequently need to. However, I've had enough of their red tape policies that prevent returns even with the shipping receipt, the card that was used to purchase it as well as the scannable barcode from the package the item was in . Especially when it's less than 60 days old. Their customer service line is a joke and the store manager Linda was even more so. I will not support a company like this any longer.

Today I posted on Catherines Plus Sizes the following : I do not understand the Corporate policy I was just quoted - I called about purchases I made approximately 3 months ago. I have spent approx 250.00 in the 3 month time frame. I have purchased 2 pairs of the Knit Jean Capri's and 2 pairs of the Knit Jeans. 1 pair on the Knit Jeans in Denim color has pulled places and holes in them. The Capris are fine. These jeans retail at 54.95 so I called to see about exchanging them because in my estimation they are defective. I was informed that if the product has been washed or worn I have no recourse, mind you the jeans say on them to wash before wearing so I guess I want to warn others that if you make purchases here the company will not stand behind their products.

I purchased a item online $36.85. I thought it was a dress with a jacket but it was only a duster. Anyway, I called to research how to return the item. I opted to drive to the nearest store which was 35 min. away. I returned the item to the store. I was sent a partial refund for 22.39. I called to find out why I only rec'd a partial refund. They sent another partial refund of 2.05 was issued. Then another credit for 2.19. To much for a first experience!

This website SUCKS BIG TIME! They sign up emails like spammers, don't first verify with one email to see of they have the correct email so not to put a wrong address on their mailing! Jesus, I am so ticked off with this nutjob store! Some plus size old lady used my email address to sign up for their mailings, and she was wrong and rude to do that. I am a teenage male, not a plus size cross dresser. Hey, if that's your thing, so-be-it, but don't just add me to your list! THEN, THIS AZZHAT WEBSITE WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO UNSUBSCRIBE WITH IT'S TRICKERY, AND THE FACT IT SEEMS TO WANT MY NAME/ADDRESS/ORDER NUMBER. So incredibly rude and ignorant that I cannot unsubscribe, so I did an online chat where the lady said she'd take care of it but failed to do so. Two-and-a-half weeks later, I still cannot unsubscribe so do another online chat. That lady also said she will take care of it. She also said she is sorry to see me go without as much as asking why I wanted to unsubscribe, so I volunteer why and she is that ignorant that she thinks an 17 year old male should still want to receive unwanted emails for fat lady clothes. Come on, I ma a kid who did not ask for these emails I was polite at first and asked to be unsubscribed, but the online ladies thinkthat I should be joyed to receive their mailings, and to that I say WTF! You people are messed up., NOW LEAVE ME ALONE!

My go-to place for work clothes. I was given several outfits for Christmas for a new job.
I love them so much I want the work pants in every color and have recommended to coworkers and friends. I love the site to store feature so that I can browse for the perfect outfit online, then try it on in the store for the perfect fit.

Ordered 2 cotton wire free bras- how hard can that be? I realize bras can be hard to fit but the quality of the fabric was so poor (cheap scratchy lace)and only the exterior was cotton...most of the interior that actual touches you ( the part that maters) was synthetic and - another thing the connector on your shoulder.shoulder strap ( a huge ring thing) cuts into your shoulder. Also because I didn't have a credit card I didn't get the advertised free returns....shouldnof read the tiny return fine print....tricksters. Do not shop!
Review by Twinlink Siejek1 year ago
I ordered three bras at $49. each. Size 38d. One of them was the wrong size but probably wouldn't fit anyway. I measured the band size and they were 30" and 32". Tried to get a return label and they don't do that. So you have to pay the shipping to get the product and return it. I am two hours from the store.

Clothes are good quality. Just need to be a bit younger looking but not teeny bopper in the dressy casual & the casual clothes . The sales clerks are always very nice & helpful.

I I purchased a $200 dress for my son's wedding online. Upon receiving it and trying it on it wasn't for me. I researched how to return, and decided my best option was to return it to a store in a community about 100 miles from where I live since I planned to be in that city anyway. I returned it to the store only to be told they could not credit my account. They had to ship it back to the warehouse and I would receive credit when they received it. I thought it was odd, but they were busy and kind of dismissed me. I was half way home about 50 miles away when I realized they did not give me a receipt. Fast forward three weeks later and of course no record of my dress anywhere. No tracking # and no evidence that I returned it so I am out $200. The customer rep on the phone was friendly and did reach out to the store where the dress was returned but in the end was not able to do anything. She said the store probably hung the dress up and sold it again. I won't be shopping there ever again and I can't advise anyone else to either.

Opened Catherine card in store. Somehow my card was associated with another persons account and they closed my account. I contacted Customer Service, they so called fixed my issue but the next day they closed my account again. Therefore i went into store twice to look like a fool thinking I could use my card. I called Customer Service back and they want me to send in hard copy front and back of my ID and SSN and a bill with my address and name on it. That is very dangerous this day and time to do. They need to update the system so that we can send via email. I would be a fool to send my info through the mail. This is VERY unprofessional. Now I have to find somewhere else to spend my money because this situation sucks and its not even my fault. There should be a better way to identify me other than sending my personal info in the mail which is STUPID

I visited your store in Longview Texas & was greeted by your employee-Lytandra (store#05578). She is a real asset to Catherines. Ms Lytandra was exceptionally polite throughout my transaction. She was extremely patient& helpful to me. Being in a wheelchair didn't alter her profession attitude & helpfulness to other customers. Ms Lytandra made my shopping experience delightful. Thank you to Lytandra.

Every time I trust one of their "amazing" sales (like 40% off entire store!) I go in and out of 6 completely different things none of them are on sale. They are ALL "Perfect Price" Crap. Also, the coupons only work on a very select few items and for only a percentage of what they are supposed to be taking off. I'm done shopping there and with me goes 8-10 women who used to only shop there. Done.

I opened a credit card with Catherines. I needed a new card and requested it three times. I never got one. A salesperson talked me into charging. They said I was one day late paying my bill because I sent it through the mail. They shutdown my credit card would not take the late fee off for a person who had spent over $2,000 in one year through other payment methods. They were rude on the phone they lied about not sending me a credit card so that I could manage my account online. I do not buy from them anymore.
Review by Cbarryustomer Ornum1 year ago
I had an issue with Catherine's overcharging me for shipping (I'm in Canada) a couple of years ago. Catherine's customer service refused to back down until I went to the Better Business Bureau, and it was resolved within a day, in my favour. I didn't shop Catherine's again until this past summer, thinking I'd give them another chance. They were having a sale, so I tried to make an online purchase. Every time I tried to place my order, I'd get a message saying it didn't go through and to try again. I did that four times until it worked. Then I received four order verifications from Borderfree (Catherine's partner), though NONE from Catherine's that my orders had gone through. I called Catherine's customer service immediately to make sure that I would receive only 1 order. The rep assured me that I'd receive only one. I received 4. Luckily, I was planning a trip to the states so I was able to return 3 of them easily. Back home, I tried to place an order once more. The order went through smoothly and I thought I'd have no problems this time around. When I received a package from Catherine's, I was shocked to see that I'd received another customer's order. I contacted them through their website (because the international customer service phone number doesn't always work) and explained what happened. I asked if I were going to receive my actual order, how to deal with the order I received. (Canadians don't get the option of being able to return things for free. We have to pay the shipping.) It became a gong show. The rep asked for photos of the items I received, with the tags visible, and the info on the packing slip. I sent them, exactly as asked. The rep said she couldn't open the "attachments". (I send them in the body of the email, and not as attachments.) I tried again. Same result. I tried sending them one at a time. She was able to open each of them, but said that I'd neglected to display the tags in the photos. I sent the identical photos AGAIN, with the tags/numbers circled. (I've included one of the pics I sent to Catherine's, as requested.) She said she couldn't open my "attachments". Not once did she address the issue of if I were going to actually receive the order I paid for (which, btw, was double the amount of the other customer's order) This went on for two days, In the end, the rep told me that my payment would be refunded immediately, I would NOT be receiving my order, and that I should "throw away" the other customer's order. (I donated them to a shelter.) When I received my next credit card statement, not only had I not been reimbursed, I'd also been charged for the other customer's order! I contacted them once again, and was told that my refund would take 6 weeks and they'd remove the other customer's charge. I did receive my refund eventually, but ended up paying the other charge because I just couldn't face dealing with their customer service again. I will never shop Catherine's online, again. I wish I could say I won't shop them ever, but they do sell good quality plus-sized clothing, and that's difficult to come by.
