I pulled into rural king sunday morning and they had the doors open at 11:55 I walked in with my 17 yr. old son to purchase chicken feed. when this male employee yelled at us and told us that they were not open, I stopped dead in my tracks and then he said to go on. Then under his breath he called me a mother F***er. It was all I could do to get my son and our feed out of that store. My son was so upset with this man for disrespecting his mother in such a tone. All I can say is that I was shocked. I hope this isn't how they treat all the people that walkes thru their door. What a bad example they have set for a teenager.

I have been a custome at Robinson Rural King for many years. I live in the Robinson area. I want to say how sorry I am that you were treated in such a rude manner as this was. Please don't let one fool make you believe that everone in the Robinson area is as rude as him. I have never seen such behavior in Rural King. I bet the idiot has been fired by now.I hope you come back and shop in Robinson.

You should have found a manager and reported it then and there!
I can not believe you went ahead and bought what you went in for. It will not help to fix the problem now!

You think you may have problems with your local Rural King? Just type in the zip code 42431 and look up "Rural King people fired" in the forum section and read about our local Rural King.

I apoligise for what happened to you, and it should have been reported then. I have worked at Rural King for several years and have always treated all customers with respect. If it is not reported nothing can be done about it and as far as our town if you dontlike it move because we dont need or want you here.

Used to go there but they are never open or don't have what I need. We go to Paris now they open early and stay open past 6 everyday im a farmer and like to get what i need before noon and they always have what we need and are very nice THERE which makes it worth the extra few miles

I have never had anything but a positive experience at robinson rural king. I'm not the most handy person, and they are always happy to help me figure out solutions for my weekend projects. They also carry the best dog supply in town. Not to excuse it, but you probably just caught one bad employee on one bad day.

Rural king at robinson is full of employees who will literally turn and walk away, if they think theyre going to have to do something. Went there a couple yrs ago and put a full set of tires on my truck( over 6 hundred dollarsworth) and the guy that was putting them on told me, never come in again and try to get tires put on after 2pm if i knew what was good for me. I tryed to talk to the manager and was told he was busy and didnt have time to talk or take unwarranted complaints. Will NEVER darken their doors again!!!!!!!!!
