Tradefair Supermarket Complaint - Disrespectful Staff

Review by mama43 on 2007-04-01
LONG ISLAND CITY, NEW YORK -- I want to make a complaint about the staff of the tradefair that we've spent lots of money in for close to 2 years. For the second time my 17 and a half old daughter went there and was grabbed by a african male and accused of stealing,which was never found. My daughter goes there to buy items for the family,and this man has no reason to put his hands on my child.I will contact my lawyer and this man should be fired.He held my daughter and held her shopping cart, even while she was requesting him to let her go,loudly shouting for him to let her arm go, and i'm sure there were witnesses. This continued as others walked by. This is uncalled for and i want it stopped, i'm tired of store thinking because of your race you got to be stealing.. We spend alot in that store, and this should never have happened once and surely not twice.I told my daughter she should've called the police, but she felt that the store would lie and because she's a black teen.She would not be heard. So i'm her mom ,her dad and i will be making a complaint against this racist behavior. This man had no proof of my child stealing anything.This is the tradefair l.I.C 21st street.. How many others out there have been accused by the untrained staff at this tradefair. Speak up and speak out we must stop these people from disrespecting us and/or our children!! I'm an honest woman and even when i made an order over 200.00 The deliveryman forgot to deliver my 2 gallons of milk,i called and still haven't been able to get my milk. They give me a hardtime.I even have the reciept where they charged me for the milk at 2.99 Each and they act like i'm lieing. This is so racist, but i'm not having it, you will respect me,because i'm a blessed woman, and god won't let you get away with it.You've messed with the wrong family.If we keep allowing stores to get away with their ignorant disrespctful behavior,they'll never change.We're decent people we should be treated with respect.What goes around does come around.This store need to change the one's who make the good one's (at this store look bad.Most of the worker's are respectful and do their job right.This man has a serious problem,and he need someone to inform him, he cannot put his hands on anyone!!

One of your two identical reviews was deleted so I will repeat what I said on the other.

Mama43, this was the second time your daughter went there and both times accused of stealing? Why did she return the second time? The first would have been enough for most people. Then, your order was shorted by two gallons of milk..and you continue to do business with this store. Explain that to us.

Anybody who reads this will know exactly what I'm thinking, so I won't go there.

Shakra, I know exactly what you are thinking and where you are coming from, and I won't go there either.

I REALLY DON'T CARE WHAT YOUR THINKING IF YOUR THINKING IGNORANT.. WE GO THERE BECAUSE IT'S NOT THE STORE IT'S THE FOOL THAT WORKS THERE, AND IT'S NOT ONLY HAPPENING TO MY CHILD IT HAPPENS TO MOST TEENS THAT LIVE IN THE AREA HE THINKS SHE'S FROM THERE BUT WE'RE FROM THE OTHER SIDE. WHY DO YOU DO SOME OF THE THINGS YOU DO.. DUH DON'T TRY TO RESPOND WITH YOUR B.S.. MAYBE U AIN'T OF COLOR SO WHY ARE U QUESTIONING ME. AND IF YOU ARE OF COLOR THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW WHY SOME TEENS ARE LOOKED AT AS STEALING, ETC..

Yea, ok.

Instead of contacting the store, why not go with your daughter and get to the bottom of this?? Remember, there are two sides to every story.

Here ya go, send them this complaint.
