Clueless and Rude!
Posted by on
BURLINGTON, IOWA -- I believe in supporting the Mom and Pop shops. Which is why I went to this store to purchase items which are not competitive in their prices compared to large department stores. Also, I know to whom and where my money goes, and I feel I am doing good for people with good values and work ethics.

Or so I thought.....

I went to purchase a Christmas gift card and was greeted by a pushy, younger sales girl that followed me around the small store. This is pretty common now-a-days, but the manner of the old, heavier woman, (who I now know is an owner!) was unforgettable!!

After she logged the certificate inventory number, she wanted to complete the "to" and "from" portion on the gift card itself. I expained to her that it wasn't necessary to do so, as she has the number of the gift card already that corresponds to her recorded inventory list. (See, I wanted to fill that portion out...gift cards are so impersonnal...and if I could have filled it out in my own handwriting..well, common sense...)

Well, she huffed and puffed and said...well..."As long as your check clears!" I was sickened and appauledl. It took all my strength to not tell her why I was really there. Which is that I felt sorry for them. There customer lot is always empty. I just wanted to help. Well folks, this explains it. She's an ungrateful, old, haggared women. I can't help her with that.

Thank you anyway, Dande Workwear. I will go to Carhart online!

I didn't even know that they would accept a check for a gift card.

Why wouldn't a store accept a check for a gift card as long as they accept checks in general??

cool replies....yeah...I know, why would they accept checks. Moving here from the Chicago suburbs 2 years ago...I found this to be shocking as well. I am telling you, Burlington, Iowa is a town that still leads a simple life. They still accept checks at gas stations and restauraunts as well! I use a credit card whenever possible, but some of the Ma an Pa shops here still do not have those machines, like Dandee wear or whatever it is, I have forgotten the name now.
And guess what! Their parking lot is still always empty! I didn't feel bad at first, but I kind of do now. I hate to see hardship on anyone, but maybe from this they will learn to treat others w/ respect.
By the way, I printed off my review and mailed it to them. Minus the website address and etcetera.
So thanks for the cool replies! Great questions!

maybe they just wanted to add them to a mailing list. They took all my checks fine and I had no problems whatsoever the 4-5 times I have been in there. I like the small town service and prefer not to use credit cards or debit cards. I prefer to have someone available incase I have a question. I hate having to look for someone.
