This rotten company just opened up a bunch of stores near Chicago. Wish they hadn't. Their salesmen are liars. Their managers are very rude. And their customer service is pathetic. Are they trying to make Best Buy look good? Never thought that was possible before.

I've shopped and purchased merchandise at hhGregg for years. I've never had a problem with their salespeople or their products.

And how long have you worked at hhgregg? The place is a total pit. We're going to picket all their stores around Chicago until they get the hell out!

Are you Rhonda? Even money says you are. Even if you're not Rhonda Curtis, she is calling the shots and the number one reason hhgregg will likely go belly up within the next year. Either hhgregg is getting big time bailouts from the FED or she is totally clueless. THESE ARE THE ONLY TWO POSSIBILITIES!

Over the past years, I have always gotten my best price on televisions etc from the other places, and then went to HHG and beat them to death until they went waaayyyy under it. I know at times that they have sold to me at damn near cost, just to keep their sales #'s looking good. By the time I get through haggling with the manager (because the idiot floor salesman is somewhere puking his guts up over the stress that I've put on him) the manager is ready to quit his job. You have got to know how to play these people, because the 'sale' means EVERYTHING' to them.
Note: I did NOT get my Martin Logans from HHG. They have never carried them, and most likely none of their sales dufus' ever heard actual high fidelity sound systems.

I was right there at a Chicago store when a salesmen threatened to have the FBI take a customer who had complained, down. Then he put the person's picture from a facebook account on computers all over the store to spook the customer even more. The managers had given this salesman the personal information on this customer.

hhgregg are a bunch of Al Capone wannabees who should be shut down and put in Federal Prisons.

They are good at price cutting, but their return policy is terrible and so are their managers and customer service. A manager at a Chicago store had hired my close friend to do some work on the side for hhgregg in exchange for some merchandise. She reneged on the deal AFTER the work was done. The main office in Indy was notified of this and completely ignored the customer's complaints, while threatening him with the FBI. Are they stupid or what??

I think the people who run the show at hhgregg, should perhaps try the chop shop business. It would be a lot more suitable.

In Chicago they don't cut prices if you haggle with them. Instead they threaten you and then ban you from the store.

Bought a washer and dryer from this place 3 years ago. Already big problems with it. On top of that when I bought it they sold me a dryer that wasn't even in stock. I had to fight with them for weeks to get the dryer I paid for. How nice. Customer service calls are terrible. I just won't go back.

Their grand opening in the Chicago area was great. But after that it was all downhill. They recently gave me a great price on a camera. But I found out later it was a refurbished one. The managers there were also very unprofessional and rude.

Here is the deal. hhgregg acts very rude because they don't need our business. Thanks to Obama and the FED they are GUARANTEED a record profit NO MATTER WHAT! The FED and Obama have admitted this publicly. They know that most people are too stupid to realize the ramifications of this.

Order your electronics online. You'll get a better price anyway.

I did but two stereo systems from them years back, I wished I hadn't though, I wanted a certain set of speakers with the systems, They had them But told me they couldn't pair the pair of speakers I wanted with the systems I bought, Not that they wouldn't work, They just made the choice not to sell them to me. I should had walked away , But the system as in the stereos were both a good price. I did get the speakers with one system, But I wanted more power from those other speakers.I never shopped at their stores again.I went to Highland , Then they became dirty and cluttered with bad sales people and staff . I stopped going to them as well.I think many electronic outlets get to deep into product and ignore the customers needs or willing to even pay more to get what they want.Now I shop as BEST BUYS .I do miss those SEARS OUTLET STORES. You could find great deals on many items at those stores , I also loved shopping at Service Merchandise , They had great deals on products also. I always found what I wanted .I find myself going to Big lots WHO HAVE GREATLY IMPROVED AND ADDED MANY PRODUCTS TO THEIR STORES AND DEALS.i HAVE BEEN TOLD CANADA IS THE PLACE to get great deals on furniture and electronics. You get the same there for half the price in the states.

Sounds to me like HH Gregg got rid of a mental case and they are on Topix imposing their sickness on the readers.

Did you post this on your break? I didn't know that hhgregg even gives their rotten employees breaks.

Meanwhile, I heard some good news. Abt TV located in the Chicago area takes online orders. They have great customer service.

Canada probably had great prices too, but don't know anything about their customer service.

Of course ANYTHING would be better than hhgregg, even Best Buy! lol

Any company who has to threaten or intimidate customers doesn't belong in business. They threatened the FBI on numerous occasions saying custmers will get busted for phony terrorist charges if they complain about service at hhgregg. I am not making this up.

I wouldn't do business with this company if they paid me for their service.

Lost on this planet:

We were one of the people who reported this to the FBI. They didn't do a damn thing except laugh at us. We live in a corporate oligarchy now. The sooner you sheep wake up and realize that, the better the more informed among us will be. The Fed with Obama's blessings are bailing out almost every big company. Ron Paul is the only one willing to stand up to the FED. Ron Paul 2012!
