I am glad to report that after sending another email with a link with to this review, Harry & David finally returned the shipping fee.
I will mark this as resolved, just be aware the quality of Harry & David pears is no longer what it once was and you might have to fight to get your shipping fee returned.

Harry and David has gone down hill and I will never order from them again. I recently d a box of "Royal Riviera Pears".
These are NOT the Royal Riviera Pears they used to sell. These are tiny, bruised, dented and horrible looking. I have attached photos which show just how awful these pears look. After waiting on hold for 45 minutes, I will told they would only refund the cost of the pears and not the shipping which I think is ridiculous since what they sent me was not what I ordered.
I use to receive the Royal Riviera at Christmas as a gift so I know what they are supposed to look like. They looked like the promo photos from the website, not the mess I received. Looks aren't everything of course, but these pears taste terrible too.
Bottom line: Terrible product and horrible customer service. Avoid at all costs.
Product or Service Mentioned: Pear.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
Monetary Loss: $10.
Preferred solution: Full refund.
I didn't like: Quality was sickening.
