The problem wasn't the big box stores as much as overextended credit, not stocking what the public wanted and poorly trained employees. I went in to buy a refrigerator. The ones they had on the showroom floor were 3-5 year old models. I knew which model I wanted. They told me they could have it in a week and gave me a price. They offered me one of the 3 year old models which was very similar, just a little smaller at a big discount and I agreed to buy it. The sales person started writing it up and started asking all of these personal questions. I asked why and he said they had to fill out a credit report. I told him I was paying cash. He said that the price he quoted was for a credit sale and he would have to start over to figure out the cash price. I told him to kiss my ass and went to Lowes and bought the one I wanted.

I've never had a problem with Queen City.. They ALWAYS have the best trained employees. Their pricing is the same whether paying cash, or credit. I belive you mistook a "big box" store for them when typing this... By the way, they have filed recently to repay all debtors and should be ok this summer...
