I am upset, and I have had enough, but what can I do?

The new bike I had ordered in January, which was going to arrive in March and then in April, is now not coming. When I rang on Friday to see where it was, they could not find the order. When I went to see them in person, they confirmed that my order was no longer in the system and that the next expected delivery was in October. October!!!
