In October, I spent a few hours at Macy's to create our registry. I was pretty happy with how it went and felt like Macy's registry page was easy to navigate and simple to use.
Last week, when Rue La La had some items from my china pattern for sale, I wondered if the pattern was being discontinued. I quick went to Macy's and saw a bunch of notes that looked like this:
While that screen shot is of a note on my flatware, it was also under every single item on my china list. I called Waterford right away. They told me that they didn't discontinue my pattern and that demand actually exceeded the supply. They couldn't keep it in stock because it's pretty popular.
Macy's decided on it's own to stop carrying the pattern, which is kind of funny in light of how popular it is. In about 10 minutes time, I moved my entire registry over to Bed, Bath & Beyond. See ya later, Macy's!
My mother went in to BB&B to buy something off the registry and told me that she found the people in the little wedding office to be very helpful. She thought the process of buying off the BB&B registry was quick and easy.
Anyone have any great experiences with registries? How about not-so-great experiences? I'm curious if Macy's routinely discontinues items despite them being popular.
