I don't know why i even thought to go in that store, but as soon as i walked in, i had an older man starting at me the whole time like i was going to steal something and a lady with short blond hair who must have thought i was going to buy anything because she was so rude and didn't give me the time of day. anyone else had a problem there?

I've lived in the area all my life and have never been. What do they sell there?

Not at all, not by any means, I am a well off older lady and take pride in my appearance. although i do find that offensive, because first, what classifies one as "sketchy" and two, that is discrimination from appearance and I'm sure that stops people from shopping there. Maybe that is why they are in a run down building that is beat up.

Never again, I agree with you 100%. My first and last time there was during Christmas time. I was bombarded by little facts and tidbits about products I was not even looking at. The owner (I know she was the owner because she bragged about it being her store and there is no other store around like her store)was snotty and rude and followed me around the store, always having her eye on me like i was going to steal something. But i must agree there is no store around this area like hers, at least at other stores I am not constantly looked at and I am allowed to browse on my own.

WELL, it shouldn't matter how you look. You are a customer and that's how you should be treated, "sketchy" or not. My girlfriends and I went there to shop after brunch and as soon as we walked in I could hear the blonde lady making fun of one of my friend's pants to one of her employees. The employee looked very uncomfortable about what was being said because she knew I had overheard. So I gathered our group and we left.

Thanks for posting this....I was just about to go there. Some business owners need to get a clue about customer experience.
