Comments: Don't register at Robinsons-May

You are way more patient and polite than I would be. That experience made me dizzy.

Which Rob-May store were you at? When I got married, I had no problem registering. My friends also regiestered there with no problems at all. I disagree with not registering there, you just happened to be there at the wrong time.

We got married about six years ago (has it really been that long?). Because her family is in Arkansas, we used J.C. Penney's to register, which, while somewhat annoying in its clunkiness, did actually work. But as to your experience with Robinson-May, I completely believe it. Another friend and former co-worker registered there about five years ago and had exactly the same problems, compounded by the fact that the online store was not able to deduct items from the list, with resulting duplications, etc.

I never liked May Co. when they were an independent chain, nor Robinson's; the combined entity doesn't seem to be all that much better. About the only time we shop there is at Christmas, because they're one of the few places that stocks Port Merionware, which my mother collects (and is ungodly expensive, being hand-made in the UK).
