Over on Scraps of Color I was in an ATC swap.....for Valentine's Day there was a slight twist...You had to use non-traditional colors of Valentine's Day besides your normal reds and pinks.

Poor Customer Service!

I try not to post about negative experiences.......but I just had to post about the recent treatment in one of my favorite craft stores this is the letter that I sent corporate I have blanked out the manager's name......

On the Monday, February 6, 2012 I purchased two packs of scrapbook paper when I pick one of the packs up it had a price of 9.95 but it look like it was falling apart so I put it back and picked up the newer looking item but I did not look at the price. However, when I got home I notice that the price was five dollars more than the one I had originally had picked up it was the same item! I took it back on Wednesday, February 8 and I went and got the other one to show them the price was different the store manager  Blank would not adjust the price so I returned the one for the higher price and was going to buy the cheaper one but wanted to look to see if there was any other items that I wanted in the store. While I was in the back of the store near the fabric I overheard him telling another employee to watch me because he felt that I might be stealing from the store! I was very upset and the more I thought about it the more upset I got I confronted him and told that I am in the store every week and that I spend a lot of money in your store and asked him why was he having me watched he said that was his job and that he did that to all the customers I informed him that I not be buying anything and that it would be my last time coming in this Hobby Lobby. I have never been accused of stealing from any store! I have observed this store manager before and felt that he had been rude to other customers; this was my first encounter with him as I have an excellent rapport with the other employees and assistant managers in the store. I have spent well over 2,000 dollars in your store since it has open here in Douglasville and have the receipts to prove it! I know quite a few crafters, teachers and others that frequently shop at this Hobby Lobby here in Douglasville. It would be a shame if they would stop shopping at your store because of the rude behavior and attitude of the store manager! I look forward to hearing from you on this matter.

The bad think about this is that after a little reseach online there are quite a few people that have experienced this type of treatment at other Hobby Lobbies acrossed the country! It a shame that a company would allow this type of behavior at their store!!!!!!! As always have a wonderful day!
