Editorial rating

Product quality – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (4)

Yes, it’s still not the luxurious quality of custom-made products. However, they offer the best quality among the affordable options available in this niche. World Market is your best bet at getting a fair quality/price ratio.

Delivery – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (4)

They do not provide their users with information on the shipping companies they use. Some of their orders may be shipped without tracking number. They do not ship to non-continental states of the U.S. All of these things affected the final score.

Value for money – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (5)

Since these products are brought from international markets, the prices are very affordable compared to U.S. local brands. The quality that you get for this money is very high, and most of these products will last long.

Website ease of use – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (5)

The website design is very responsive by all means. It loads fast, and you can easily shop from any device. The design is not overwhelming, cause it’s minimalist and clean.

Product information – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (5)

They provide you not only with the specifications and generic descriptions but also with the categorized feedback data. They show you the most useful review and the most liked negative review. This way, you will be able to make a fair judgment before you proceed with your purchase.

Product images – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (5)

Most of their products have so many photos! Since they upload the pictures of happy customers with their tables, you can browse dozens of photos. These images will help you understand how it will fit your interior, cause you’ll see the real look of those products in another customer’s interior.

Product options – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (4)

Many of their products are only available in one style. This is one of the consequences of selling unique/authentic furniture pieces brought to you from other countries.

However, when it comes to rugs, pillows, and other home goods, you will be able to choose the color/pattern before you check out.

Support – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (4)

They do not have a live chat. Their phone support works during regular business hours, and you can also send an email with your claim or questions. This is not bad and not good; the usual.

Offline Stores

More than 250 stores available nationwide. Exceptions are the non-continental territories of the U.S.

Mobile App

They do not have a mobile app since their website is very conveniently responsive to every device.

Warranty – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (4)

Their products have a warranty, but they do not upload the warranty instructions on every product page. So you will have to contact them about it. It’s not really convenient, but very popular among big companies.

Returns & Refunds – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (4)

You can get a refund within 60 days after the original purchase. The best part here is that you can return the product to any offline store location. So this means that you can bring a product for the return yourself and avoid wasting money on shipping.

  • If you return your online order to the order without the packing slip, you will only get the store credit at the lowest price for the past 90 days.
  • If you return your product after 60 days period, you will only receive a store credit
  • All returning product must be in original condition and in original packaging.
Discounts/coupons – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (5)

They have a lot of sales that you may participate in. You can always find a great set ofΒ World Market coupons on our pageΒ and save money.

Payment options – β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… (4)

You can check out with the Credit Card or PayPal. It’s good that they have the PayPal option; many stores neglect this excellent payment system.

This isn't our local cost plus but we made an online order because it showed that it was the nearest store with the chairs we where looking for. We got an email 2 days later that our order was ready for pick up. We called and confirmed before we made the drive. We got there, informed the cashier we where there for a pick up. She called a sales associate, we waited, she called again, we waited. 25 minutes later someone comes and we think he's coming our way to confirm our order.. but what he says instead is, "i can't find two of your chairs, there's a box there but it isn't the right color". Why they where missing after the company send us emails to confirm and the calls we made confirming so we didn't drive all the way out for no reason.. is not his fault. But instead of making us stand there for 40 minutes, he could have just told us what was going on.. we would have been upset but wouldn't have waisted our time.

Walked in here several weeks ago and had the absolute best customer experience. There was a more senior gentlemen with glasses who helped me set up my customer rewards/ benefits and it made buying half the store so much easier on the wallet. Thank you world market for hiring associates who care for the customers.

I'm an Indiaphile, so I've loved their merchandise since the 80's. Whenever I'm in the area I always have to pop in and see their latest finds. I love the thick American Indian blankets, their clever cooking gadgets, exotic pillows, rugs, lamps, towels, stoneware... Always a very friendly staff. This location has a free parking lot. It's a smaller store but still full of plenty to see and buy.

This is a great place and I love shopping at Cost Plus, but I don't love that they closed my El Segundo store. 😕 This one in west LA is the closest option, yet far for me, so I probably won't be there near as much as I used to...bummer.

Geraldine was so friendly and genuine while she was helping my mom and me checkout at the cash register. We were approached in the store and asked if we needed any help as well by a different employee. In all it was a nice shopping experience and fabulous customer service. Thank you World Market team!

Cost Plus World Market's World Explorer program is one of my favorite customer-rewards programs. Their promos are fun and exciting. I always enjoy shopping here, even when the free coffee or tea's empty. This particular store boasts an ample parking lot, clean restrooms, and super friendly associates. And the product selection is always fascinating. I'm a fan!

World Market bestsellers

Is this shop legit?

This is an old and reputable store, well-known in the U.S. We’ve also reviewed another store from this family before (Bed, Bath & Beyond). Both of these shops are legit to shop.

FAQ

1Do I need to sign up to make a purchase?

You can shop without getting an account with World Market. However, you’ll have to get an account if you want to participate in the World Market membership and get rewards for your account.

2Can I track my order after the purchase?

Most of the time, yes, but not all the orders can be tracked.

3Do they provide tracking numbers for the shipped packages?

Their website states that sometimes they may ship your package without the tracking number. But you will be able to check the delivery information with their Customer Service.

4What delivery services they use?

They do not state this information anywhere on their website. Since they deliver nationwide, it’s fair to say that it most probably will be UPS, USPS, or FedEx. Freight deliveries will be served by special freight shipping companies.

They do not ship to Hawaii and Alaska at this time. They only ship to 48 states. U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, and APO/FPO deliveries are impossible as well.

6Do they offer gift cards?

They offer both physical and digital gift cards. You can request it to be mailed to your physical address. Clients can also check the balance of the gift card online or cash out (options vary by state, so you’ve got to check the cash-out table first).
