Fresh Market Complaint - Wrong Color? - Specialty Grocery Store

Review by LovelySally on 2007-04-07
RICHMOND, VIRGINIA -- I am really Surprised at my Experience at The Freah Market in Richmond Va. I came to their grand opening and it was awesome. But today was quite different. I walked in the store and was looking at some very nice potted orchids for about 10 minutes. And was never asked once if I needed help by the 2 women working behind the floral counter a arm lengths away from me. So I figured I'd go get other things I needed and come back. Which I did and again another 15 minutes rolled by still..... No service by the same 2 not busy women. But a older woman walks next to me and they flocked right to her and were helping her with questions about the same orchids wanted help with. So I finally go up and ask for help and I am told to read the tag on the orchids for instructions on how to care for them. I could not believe what I was hearing. So I wound up having to ask the customer who WAS getting help with the orchids. So of course I left the things I was going to buy and walked out.

I AM WONDERING SOMETHING I WONDER IF I WASN'T HELPED BECAUSE I DIDN'T LOOK LIKE I COULD AFFORD THESE ORCHIDS OR MAYBE JUST MAYBE BECAUSE I WAS THE WRONG COLOR TO BE SERVED....I AM A BROWN SKINNED LATINA......LET'S HOPE NOT

Do you not have a mouth, why did you wait a long time without asking for help. What happened to your voice then.

It is not because you are brown skinned, it is because you did not open up your mouth and ask for help. Stop blaming racism just because you did not get your way. Stop jumping to conclusion. I bet you do a bunch of things you are not supposed to do and when people point this out you blame them for doing so based on the colour of your skin. They did not serve you because you did not talk peroid.
