Hi everyone. I usually hang out over at the LV forum but I bought a Coach umbrella about a year ago and now I'm having problems. It was a $58 umbrella but I had a $50 card from a SA so I only ended up paying $8 for the thing. Now a year later it won't close. To keep it down I have to wrap the little tie around it. Has anyone had this kind of problem with a Coach umbrella (FP not MFF)? If so what did Coach do to fix the problem? I called my local store to ask what could be done and they told me they would repair it for free but I had to pay shipping ($10 each way to Jax). When I complained that this would cost me more than I actually paid for the umbrella, they told me to bring it in and they MIGHT waive the shipping. What should I do?
