    I have openned an Account 3 weeks ago at witbank but till today they keep sending an sms that requires my bank statement, yet I have submited it more than 5 times now.
    Each and everyyime when they check my status on the till it keeps saying Account is not active I must submit my bank statement, then the one helping will ask my bank statement and scan it after that they call to cornfim whether they have recieved it at head office, they agreed that they have recieved, but they keep sending me sms’s requiring my bank statement. I dont know what to do now since I have asked help from different Ackermans stores but no one can solve this problem.

  2. Hi there,

    It’s almost midnight but I still can’t get over the poor customer experience at Cosmo Mall. The employees there are so rude, literally not willing to help as the one lady mentioned “Don’t bother asking I don’t deal with clothing “ and they are also intentionally slow. I’m currently heavily pregnant and having to wait in a queue of 3people for over 30minutes was unreasonable.
    I am very disappointed and don’t understand why people who are so evidently unhappy would be in such roles.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I bought a phone at Ackermans Pinetown(Hill Street) on the 7th of April 2019. Few days later, a camera started acting weird showing some vertical lines. On the 23rd of April, I brought it back and it was booked for repair. I asked the lady about the normal time it takes for repair. The lady assumed that I should come and look for it after 3-4 weeks. After 3 weeks I went there, the other lady told me to come again and check it on the 23rd of May. Today morning, I went there there to check for it but the lady told me to come back after a week from today. The thing is, this phone is one month old and makes annoys me that I’ve to wait again.

I mean he was rude his way of speaking, facail expression and all that . even store manager told me she doesn’t do it where she was I must go to cashier but first cashier told me to go to her. feel these employees really don’t care about customers at all.

  6. I would like to lodge a complaint about a cashier named Jessie at President Hyper Ackermans, she was extremely rude and disrespectful. I do not see myself going to that store anymore!

    i bought a phone at Ackermans , within two weeks my phone screen just went off , so i took it back to the store and they booked it for repair , i kept on making follow up with the store through the phone , so at the store they end up telling me to call MTN costumer care and ask them to put me through the repair department , so at the repair department they have advised me that they dont have my phone and it was never booked with them maybe it might be another service provider.
    I called Ackermans and told them that their service provider doesn’t have my phone they said they will call me they need to verify so few thing, but they didnt come back to me the following day which is today i called again and they told me that the phones were not collected from the store from February till now

  8. Is there actually someone working at the call centres/customer services? High call volumes for a week now… really? I have been holding for over 30 minutes now!!! Call volumes cant be that bad. Oh, Ackermans… *sigh*

  9. I bought a phone in Ackerman’s Cape Gate Mall on 1st of this month it was Wednesday and then the fallowing day I go back asking for an exchanged because I realise that the same day that it was faulty it was freezing and slowly and I was struggling with internet but when I get there I got the most baddest attitude towards a lady called Melissa she was so racism and rude she made me wait for 3full hours only god knows what she was buys doing in storeroom after some time she came and told me there was nothing wrong with the phone so I was not only being ignored this whole hours I was also seen as a liar I couldn’t understand why would I waste my time and leave important things I could have done and gone there to lie…she was also talking in Afrikaans with her manager and when I ask her nicely to talk in English so that we understand each other she just continued and ignore me I’ve never felt so small and offended like that in my life..I almost slapped her that’s how much angrier I was but I kept my cool but I just regret buying there..your service is VERY POOR!!

    Hi please can you help me, I believe you sold pink resets with a white unicorn on and ribbons on the sleeve, can you tell me where I can get two of these from or if you have any branches who may still have stock, if you can even give me a contact to order some I’d be very grateful
    Kind regards

  11. I always buy clothes for my 20month old at Ackermans, since she was in my tummy. I’ve always loved the clothes & quality of everything I buy, except for your trackpants & tracktops! My God! Low quality material is used, 1 wash & it looks old & hideous. Something MUST be done about that. I’m very disappointed, especially since Ackermans has been around for an extremely long time. I feel embarrassed when my baby is wearing those tracksuits, like they’re second hand or something. And another thing, most of your employees aren’t trained properly on how to treat a customer. They don’t greet, even when you greet them first, they’re too busy talking to their co-workers to even notice you, they don’t say thank you afterwards, they’re unhelpful, like you’re annoying them when you’re asking for help, they’re always depressed about something coz you don’t even get a smile from them. Go to Ackermams in Bridge City, KZN, KwaMashu & pretend to be a customer, you’ll see what I’m talking about.

  12. Unacceptable behavior on your part Ackermans orTenacity Financial services. I have received a card from you with my personal home address but addressed to someone that I have never heard of. How on earth did you get my address for someone else and I have lived in my home for 39yrs. Phoning has got me nowhere. Now I am off to the ombudsman.

  13. Very angry for the 2nd time buying mornig shoes at ackermans lambton they get torn after a month without a slip no return funny av got morning shoes in one of the shops last year still in good condition. Am due next month i dont have anything to wear. Last time am buying at ackermans

    Good Afternoon

    I would like you to assist on this because I just receive an sms demanding me to pay a lay-by that I don’t know of and with this number which I think is lay-by no: 100058845007. And I never made any lay-by at Ackermans I always pay cash if I buy anything so please clarify this for me.

  15. The attitudes of the staff at Ackermans – Village Mall, Hartbeespoort is atrocious. They are very unfriendly and don’t seem to want to be there. They are on a permanent go-slow. You wait for ages at the till even when you are the only customer in the store. It’s just such a horrible vibe in there because of the miserable, unfriendly, unhelpful, extremely slow staff.

    I have tried to open an account many times and always unsuccessful. I was told i have no credit record now i have taken out a loan and have an account at Mr price. I get paid R9000pm don’t pay rent and i am engaged. I really cant seem to understand the reason for this.

    Would love to get a reply on this

    Thank you

  17. Hi. Could top management please come and see your store in Swellendam. I have always loved Ackermans, always used to find great value for money clothes, but your branch in Swellendam is SHOCKING! The most awful clothes you can imagine! It must be seen asap.
    Surely a little more effort can be made?

  18. Michael Jackson Reply

    I paid for a Connex Slimbook with hard drive for R3299. When I set it up at home, I found it had no hard drive. I took it back. Identical Slimbook without hard drive is R2999. But they said they could not provide a R300 credit. So I’ll have to spend 2 hours plus 500mb of data to set up another one. Wasteful all round.

    To whom it may concern. It is very frustrating to call your head office or customer service line as ,a person holds for more than 20mminutes irrespective of wat time of the day you call.

    I bought girls gold snickers on the 16 November 2018 at Mall of Africa. On the 24th Dec I realized that one was size 9 other one size 10. On the 27th I took them back but I did have the receipt , with the hope that as I had my statement for December and explained to them , I would-be able to get help.

    Young lady checked for me at their odd stock at the back but with no luck she could not find anything.
    I was referred to speak to Sphe, he said he is not able to help as my statement does not have detailed/ item information. I asked if the store is not able to track back sale a month later. Response was I need to call the head office.
    I left the shoes at the store with my cell phone number hoping that someone will contact me.

    I only need to be credited please advise.

    Good morning sir/madam

    I’m hereby to lay a complaint, about customer services that is offered by your shop called Ackermans, there is only 1 cashier at this time while we busy buying our kids stuffs for school can you please guys make a plan for us. Phillippi branch service is poor please do something better for us.

  21. Good day. I am tina tsupe fubesi. On 2018.12.31 I went to gugulethu mall ackermans store. On the cellphone display unit I saw sumsung grand prime
    Price was R1399. I asked for the phone because I had the money. Only to find when I was paying the teller was also shocked because the price was R1700. I took a photo of the phone on display. The Second incharge lady was called for assistance but she could not help us because manager was not at work. She told me that she can’t do anything because that was the price. i argued about the price on display and she was rude and left us. I ended up lay buying the phone. I want to lodge a formal complaint about this. Before I go to consumer complaints and service ombudsman. How are you going to assist me?

  22. I made a purchase for over R2000 at the Ackermans in Ballito Lifestyle and the service was pathetic I dont want to shop there again. Specifically a lady Priska was asked to check for an item and without checking she just said no stock but the item was found by the 2nd in charge who was also on the phone and took so long to find the item. Overall everyones energy was down. I am in retail and if you walk into a store you dont want to see sour staffs faces. I hope you can get to the bottom of this thank you.

  23. I recently opened an account with ackermans. The dat I came to activate my card at Piet retiet, the one by Spar. The light in compilation last I do not know her name she was standing bYou the door. She was on the phone.. So I greet her and I realise that she in the phone the I wait for her to finish,she looked at me and said can I help you with an attitude. I responded and say I wish to activate my card , she responded with the same attitude and said “I don’t work with cards talk to Glenda”. I active my card then buy cloth for R1 015.00 then I was not happy with the clothes. yesterday I decided to exchange few items. I did not have the ackermans plastic so I leave my bag by the door and I went to the lady, she’s dark, she look old enough to be a mom.i tell her that I want exchange few item but they are not in the plastic but in the bag I asked for ackermans plastic, then she said she cannot give me a plastic since I got the plastic the day I bought her response was full of attitude, my hand was on the Gondola she pushed the clothes on the Gondola with Anger, I to remove my hand. Then I went back to the dooR. The light skinned lady told us that we cannot go to the 2-5 department since she was mopping, the floor was still wet, me and my Sister we were waiting for the floor to dry the time was around 17:35. We wait until the floor was dry the start to look for the right sizes, the lady shouted us telling us that the floor was wet. Igot angry and I walked away.
    I am not satisfied with the service I received and I want to return all the items I bought and close the account. I will open a new one to another shop with good service. I can not tolerate such attitudes while I pay.

  24. I want to congratulate the people responsible for opening a shop just for ladies clothing. I happened to stumble upon this special store at Lynbridge shopping centre in Lynwood, Pretoria. It was such a happy and fruitful experience – a WHOLE shop full of beautiful and affordable ladies’clothes. I am in the North of Pretoria and hope that you will follow the Trent. You can just call it ACKERLADIES.

  25. Greetings
    What do you do if a person had an account with you and he/she struggled to pay his/her account and the account was taken to the lawyers, then he/she paid and she/he also received a discount to settle his/her account, but the problem now is the credit is not cleared out from the Credit Bureau, what is the procedure to get rid of this record?

  26. I purchased a cel phone from Ackermans on the 10/09/2018 in Johannesburg. Upon my return to KZN the phone stopped working. I handed the phone in at the Howick Ackermans branch in KZN on the 10/10/2018. I was told it will be repaired within 21 days. After 21 days I went to the branch and was told my phone is still at the repair centre I phoned them today 28/11/2018 and was told it is still at the repair centre. This is absolute ridiculous. the phone was a month old surely it needs to be replaced if the repair centre can not fix it in almost 2 months

    On Wednesday 21 Nov, I received an in contact alerting me that I had made a R 90.00 purchase at your Mbabane Store. I knew I had not made a purchase at your store. I went to verify with the bank before going to your Mbabane Branch. I spoke to your manager on the same day. She told me she was busy and for me to come back later. When I returned she told me she was still busy.
    I returned the next day Thursday and she told me she was busy and to leave my contact details, which I did and she never bothered calling me back. I went back the next day which was Friday, she said it was Black Friday and she was busy and that she will call me back. I am still waiting and I am very upset. How long can it take for the manager to check in which store the purchase was made in Manzini or Mbabane. I am not leaving this one even if I have to make a loud noise, I will. What happened to feedback, keeping the customer informed if a query has been placed?

  28. I have purchased 2 different tops from Ackermans and wish to make note that you ONLY have tops in ONE colour, per STYLE.

    If you had more colours in the SAME style I would have purchased more tops.

    Your loss

  29. I would like to bring to your attention that your branch at Killarney Mall is supposed to open at 09:30 on a Tuesday. Yesterday, 29 May 2018, I had to knock on the door in order for them to open as they were all standing chatting at the cashiers. When I wanted to pay for what I bought, there was no cashier available to assist me. They were too busy cashing up – is that not supposed to be done before they start in the morning of in the afternoon after they closed? Keep this up and you will close the doors in that mall soon.
