It's possible. I recall reading a few years ago that the company attributed its lack of profitability to the bad economy and low home ownership among Millenials. But even now with improving demographics they still lose money.


They just let go about 3% of their workforce about 2 weeks ago.  Scaled up staffing to support an increase in sales that they didn't reach apparently.


I was surprised to see the company has a $7.5B market cap even now. It's not at all clear that growth will solve the problem of awful gross margins, and layoffs aren't very consistent with their anticipated sales growth. They have been growing sales, but it just so far has produced bigger losses.

Re: Wayfair WTH

Honesty, Wyfair is a horrible company.

 

Beyond the nightmare I had trying to get a bed form them and having to threaten a chargeback to a refund processed correctly i would never deal with them again.

Well I am quite pleased with them. They honored the price which was 160.00 lower than the listed price.  It was delivered today and a very nice sturdy tv stand.

Re: Wayfair WTH

I've run about $3300 through my card with them and have been very happy with what I bought and with the customer service. Maybe I was lucky?

Re: Wayfair WTH

Im a fan of Wayfair.....bought some accent tables a few years back that are reclaimed wood. LOVE THEM. They also have a warehouse here in TN, so shipping is super fast. 

Got some pruning to do... No more new cards!

Too fast! Wish I had known they were so fast.  I bought a bunch of stuff on a late Thurs. (new tl- yipee) evening online shopping spree and planned on the packages arrivals during the following work week.  Well Saturday UPS and Fedex delivered on Saturday....to my DH....while I was out "shopping".Smiley Embarassed

It was really easy to assemble and it looks soooo nice I am very pleased. It was a little smaller than we anticipated so the price they honored was great because the list price really wouldn't be worth it.  But it's sturdy and looks great

I have to be careful now with our darn Alexa, when I get stuff from amazon it sends a notification and it lights up a yellow ring, I have to remember to clear it out or he checks it. busted................................

Re: Wayfair WTH

Glad you like it and glad it was an easy assembly.  I put a Wardrobe in my cart, not until checkout did I notice the measurement was off from what the picture had me to believe was taller than myself.  Still searching.

I really like this card and the pymt options.  Do you like Overstock or is that redundant?  I've never shopped OS.
