Abercrombie & Fitch The Woodlands Mall - Overpowering and Offensive Smell Made Us Ill
Abercrombie & Fitch The Woodlands Mall, The Woodlands, TX
THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS -- Let me preface this by saying I almost never complain and something has to be truly offensive in nature for me to want to speak out. I shopped this week with my eight year old son at the Abercrombie and Fitch store in The Woodlands Mall located in The Woodlands, TX. I am writing this because the cologne smell in the store was so horrifically overpowering and sickening that I was worried I would have an asthma attack on the spot. When I walked into the store, there was a young lady at the door, and when I told her that I thought the odor was offensive, she went to get her spray bottle and started to spray more cologne on the clothing all around me. Had I not had to buy a gift, I would have exited the store immediately, and when I finally completed my transaction and did exit, both mine and my son's eyes were burning. My son's nose was also red. I placed the bag in my backseat and actually had to pull over on the drive home at a gas station to use my inhaler and also to place the bag in the trunk. Why do they do this? What in the world is this outrageous store policy. The employees can come down with cancers later in life from strong smells. Also, not everyone likes this scent... my nephew, who was the recipient of the gifts I bought that day had to wash the clothing twice before he could wear them. I don't understand this policy. Maybe if others who feel the same would share their experiences, someone in corporate will listen. Needless to say, I will never step foot in that store again, and I may possibly never again buy the brand as well.
