Additional Notes

Complaint: I came in and i am a 34 year old male. And i came to sell some clothes . When they did not take my clothes i went and walked around . The selling wasnt the problem it was a girl who was acting really rude to me as i asked her for the mens section . I clearly remember her name ********* while she was gossiping with a coworker about boys i was trying to find a shirt and i heard someone say **! And she ran to the other side of the store which i assume they got in trouble for talking amongst each other. I didnt get any service and i wasnt helped and i didnt make a fuss but i got out of there real angry for the way i was treated like just another number . The only person who i didnt ask for her name was a very tall with long brown hair skinny girl that helped me find my size of jeans of jeans . Thank god for that girl because she is the only one who is keeping good customer service but i would like for the store to be checked on because i always see the same 2 girls gossiping and being paid for nothing. Thats no good use of the money i paid for other than the wage they gave that beautiful tall girl. Please bbb check up on this store.

Desired Settlement: Call me ****** ** **********

Business Response: Thank you for this! The customer's observations are very helpful. The customer has asked that I call him and I will do so.
The issues at the store are being addressed immediately.

Thank you to the BBB for providing the opportunity for the public to give us their concerns.
