Buyer beware......I am very disappointed. I cannot help but feel a bit duped by the way this product was marketed. Though written in the description, I would never have guessed that this "tower shelf" would not HAVE the SHELVES!! I was under the impression that I was buying what was shown in the picture. All I bought was a frame. The four shelves shown in the picture are $96 extra. Overstock, if you are to be fair to your customers the name of this product should be: " John Louis Stand Alone Shelf Frame (shelves not included)" OR require that John Louis submit a picture that does not include the four shelves that are currently in the picture.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? ***READ THE DESCRIPTION THOROUGHLY**** SHELVES NOT INCLUDED***** BUYER BEWARE ******
This item is very misleading. From the picture, one would expect to get the full tower - as pictured, shelves and all. However, for ***, what you're actually purchasing is the 4 walls of this towers with no shelves. If you want the shelves, it would cost you approximately another *** for 4 shelves, which would bring the total for this complete tower to *** - quite expensive for just a wooden tower with no hanging poles. Otherwise, wood is very sturdy and nice looking, but I find it extremely annoying to undo the package only to find, you're still missing parts to complete the rest of your wardrobe, which is why this listing warrants 1 star.
This is a great add on to the John Louis closet system. Just remember, you must order the shelves separately.

this is the standard tower, purchased the deluxe system initally,then added this for extra space, the shelves did not have the metal pens included, luckly had some from the deluxe system so did not have to contact customer service. Husband put up and together, was a 4hr project,, a handy man put the deluxe tower system up and took him 4-5 hrs, You pay for what you get and the deluxe system looks better and has the options for drawers and doors, which we have. The tower would work ok for simple things, but is not cheap ,considering the time and value.
Make sure to allow an extra inch in the height and width. Tower is a little larger than listed. Other than that, it is real nice product

Even though The unit comes with one of these I ordered an extra one to put my towels, and linens on, as my new house does not have linen closets. You can use it for shoes also, The one that comes with the unit I fold my T shirts, and jeans, and sweaters. It keeps my husband from digging through the drawers and messing everything up. He sees the t shirt, and pulls it out of the pile. I love Love Love these!!!!!!
I ordered 2 of these units for my master closet only to receive the towers not the shelves! I called Overstock customer service and was told the shelves would be shipped out to me right away...that it was their mistake. After a week of waiting I called Overstock again and was informed that the shelves are not included, but an extra charge! I had to pay extra for the shelves (Quite expensive as well). I think this product should be advertised as "Stand-alone Tower---Shelves Extra!
Along w/the closet system, these worked perfect for my needs. Easy install. Good, clear directions. Classy system reasonably priced...especially considering other systems which didn't look nearly as nice & were sometimes double the cost. Very satisfied w/purchase.
After having ugly closets for so long these are really beautiful just be patient on the install as all closets are not framed or plastered equally and may require hunting and measuring before you cut down shelving as plaster tends to be heaver in corners it may be worth while putting 5/8" melimine on the walls as it is relitivly inexpensive and no patching or painting after your done with your installation(which I didn't do) and all mounting will be faster with only wood screws other than that you will enjoy the finish product it looks great and have pleanty of storage
