We purchased product specifically for books. Simple design and attractive veneer are pluses. Steel reinforcement on shelves is great. Self leveling feet would have been helpful as many floors are not straight, requiring retrofit. The veneered back panels pucker at the seam, which would be a problem if shelves were for decorative purposes.

when the item arrived the shipping boxes had a ton of tape on them and many creases and bends. The delivery driver stool the box on end and about 2/3rd of the way up there was a definite bend and wobble as he shook the box(and he didn't shake it hard at all) . This was the 2nd set of these shelves we ordered; of the 3 shelves on the first order we got 2 of 3;the third one was sent back before delivery. I should have know ,but accepted the shipment anyway. ...Began the unpack and the shelves came in OK but as I lifted out he last shelf and pulled back the foam covering, sure enough a problem was discovered, both the side panels that make up the outer sides of the shelving unit were totally broken thru, 4 pieces instead of 2.
Called the Delivery Co and they came to pick them up the next day, informed Hayneedle and they are working with us to make a refund so we can replace the unit; yes we still want one, the first 2 were excellent!

On sale - warehouse damaged and seconds

Comments about Remmington Heavy Duty Bookcase With Reinforced Shelves - Cherry:

I ordered three of the 96 inch shelves. The packaging was beat up, and barely adequate to contain the contents. Over half of the pieces (sides and shelves) had scraped or chipped finish. The bottom front piece of one of the shelves had come apart from the rest, but I was able to repair with wood glue. The assembly instructions were woefully inadequate; after spending six hours on the first one, I had worked out the correct approach by trial and error. The remaining two took about 75 minutes each.

On the plus side, all parts were present. In the end, I was able to arrange the shelves so the worst damage is not visible from in front (or won't be once the shelves are loaded).

My opinion is that this shipment was made up mostly of returned and/or damaged pieces from other sales, that they wanted to clear out of their warehouse, so they scrounged the debris together into something they could justify selling at a significant discount.

        The item I ordered had some manufacturers defects -- not Hayeedle's fault and nothing they could have known.

        They offered me an immediate full refund! It was such a great experience, having an online company who listens.

        I would happily buy from Hayneedle again.

        Comments about Remmington Heavy Duty Bookcase With Reinforced Shelves - Cherry:

        The location of the two fixed shelves renders 3 of the 6 levels unusable for 8.5 x 11 books or binders. So, the unit might be good for displaying short nick nacks, but not good as a book case. You can't adjust it to have the nick nack shelves on top either.

        The back panel is two pieces. They are stained different shades.

        The bottom piece develops a stress fracture after assembling the unit.

        If the holes don't line up perfectly, the wood pegs blow through the exterior veneer when you assemble the unit.

        The side pieces are warped, resulting in visible gaps between pieces.

        You need to drill your own pilot holes for the screws that secure the fixed shelves and the back panels.

        Sadly, this turned into a huge waste of time and effort when I just wanted to get the home office organized and have shelf space for books and binders. Save yourself the headache, spend an extra $200 and buy something from a local store that you can inspect prior to purchase.

          Comments about Remmington Heavy Duty Bookcase With Reinforced Shelves - Cherry:

          This is the second 72" bookshelf I ordered. the first one was so badly damaged I had to send it back.I finally got this one assembled using parts from both sets of parts. The manufacture is very poor and because of this, the parts are very hard to get together. Some of them do not fit together right and have slight but visible gaps. The instructions are not very helpful. The hardware holes in the unit are not drilled very well, which makes the assembly nearly impossible and barely acceptable when finally done. Lots of cosmetic blemishes. Worst unassembled furniture by far I've ever seen. The box is 90 Lbs. and very difficult to move. Two people needed. If I didn't have two units to make one barely acceptable bookcase I would have sent this one back also. I took two hours to repack the one I sent back. I took 3 hours to assemble the one I kept. You need a touch-up pen to make the blemishes almost not visible. Do not buy this bookshelf!

          The instructions how to assemble the bookcase were ranging from deficient to completely wrong. The hardware holding the end pieces in place were of cheapest quality. I finally got it together with some gaps between the parts, but it took me not 12 minutes but rather 2 hours.The looks are nice and I hope it will carry the weight of the books.

            Bought two bookcases, one came in with sidewall broken into three pieces, missing parts... another one just could not hold itself together. Have to return them.

            Don't recommend this bookcase.

              this is an OK piece.
              WHY would you have directions that say ABCDE and then not label any of the parts? It was difficult and non-intuitive to put together. Back is flimsy though the piece is overall sturdy I guess

              Its OK though

                  I ordered 3 72" bookcases, and 2 out of the 3 arrived with various dings (side, top, and the actual shelves too). The pieces generally didn't fit together that well either, so that caused me more problems than I would have liked. The overall quality was generally "ok", but definitely underwhelming.

                  Better made than most other pressboard bookcases but extremely annoying that it comes with the finish nicked and marred. Yes, I understand that I could send the damaged piece back for a replacement but it wasn't worth delaying the whole project. The instructions were a bit obscure but as it's not sll that complex it's doable. There was enough hardware and most of the holes lined up. And the damage caused by those that didn't line up is hidden by the books in the bookcase
