I am a 30% disabled Vietnam two tour veteran. While I greatly appreciate a discount when making purchases, in no way to I expect this.

Serving my country was considered a privilege. While I did not appreciate my second tour in country, I still served my country with pride. To expect and or demand a discount from any retailer, is an embarrassment to all of us.

One thing to keep in mind is it is the tax dollars merchants pay that keeps our VA health care funded. That of itself, is a huge load to carry and I greatly appreciate that as well.

Bad service

I was tricked into applying for a rural king credit card in order to purchase a UTV that they sell only to find that they cant even sell it because they dont have a license to sell this item , according to the manager. They put my name on a list of people waiting for tractors and UTVs knowing they cant sell them or even get any. I called other rural king stores in my area and was told that they are ordered through corporate. Why does rural king advertise items that they cant get or sell? Ill probably never use the card .

Poor Service

Placed an on line order for 40 orange electric fence posts. Two hours latter I get 40 emails stating the order was canceled because the item was not in stock, although the website said they had them in stock. The next day I placed another order for 36 green electric fence posts, and again I receive 36 emails that said the order was canceled because they did not have them in stock. I understand that items do go out of stock; however, there is no excuse to not have your website synced with your warehouse inventory.

User's recommendation: Go somewhere else.

Tractor never serviced at location

Impossible to get in touch with tractor personnel, always out sick or no room for messages on his phone. Service personnel never call to tell you when they are coming out. I have to call 2-3 times to see when it will be. Experience is horrible. Tractor was never serviced properly from day one. service from day one.

User's recommendation: Don't buy a RK tractor !!!!!!!!!!

Wouldn’t exchange jeans

I bought 3 pair of jeans couple weeks ago for work. I have at least 8 pair I have bought from here. These was same size as my other jeans but was at least an inch wider. So I went to return them and was told had to be same size. I wanted pants that would fit. I went down a size and was told they wont exchange them unless same size. Grant it they was only $9 but I shop there a lot but I am going to take my business somewhere else.

User's recommendation: Don’t buy jeans.

Bad experience

I wanted to purchase a millwalkee m18 light that came with a free 5amp hr battery manager special. When I took the light to the cashier they sent someone to get the battery 12 minutes later I seen the one that had been sent walking around the store talking to other customers. The clerk called her on the radio and asked her about the battery and she said that she could not find one. The clerk told me that they could not honor the sale no exceptions. I spent a half hour in the store to walk out mad and empty handed.

User's recommendation: Don't believe RK. Will honor their word.

Poor service. Un american policy on battery purchases

I spoke to customer service months ago. About the. Photo ID. Current address phone number etc. Was told that wasn't policy. Today treated poorly by a manager who told me they make the rules. All that is required in this country for a product warranty is a receipt showing proof of purchase. Im telling evey 1 about my treatment. Rural king & no battery maker need my personal information. VERY BAD POLICY

User's recommendation: Dont shop rural king.

Fire this nut

I received an email

I'm just very disappointed at not being able to contact people when you call the store and most of that dude everybody getting their government checks and nobody wants to work so then when you try to go online to find what you're looking for the website that your rule King uses is not very friendly I would buy more things if it was friendlier

Ive worked at rural king for almost two years now. And I used to sell their harvest card. Now I will say it is a good paying title. Theyll pay you 14.32 to sell it, and let me tell you I am highly experienced in retail and selling credit cards. I got them the goal...

Treatment in store

Four customers had to wait 45 minutes on a manager because they were in a meeting, then comes up with a very poor attitude, said I was yelling , not true I don't do that , I deal with ppl at work also, said I was cussing, didn't know when I said he. Was *** ppl off was cussing, when I saw he was being rude and unprofessional I told him I would just talk to the district manager he shoved his phone in my face and said here use my phone, this is while I was walking out mind you. Then said I'm not buying guns there no more. I bet I spend 3000.00 a year there.
