Party City Complaint - I will never shop there again!
SAN LEANDRO, CALIFORNIA -- Okay... it's the Friday before Halloween (2010)... I go into party city in San Leandro, CA. I buy a little something for my costume... which I am not really sure I want to be.... But I think better safe than sorry. Grab it just in case... Right? Wrong!
As I was purchasing a pair of cheap leopard print pants for my costume I asked if the item was returnable... the clerk assured me they were the just needed to be returned within three days. No problem Halloween was in 2 days so if I changed my mind I would return them the next day.
Or so I thought... That night my husband finally decided to be the costume I originally picked out. so back the next day I went to party city to return those leopard pants. but there is a hitch... I can't return them for what I paid for them... I can only get a store credit. What!!!
i didn't know this was the bank of Party City! apparently, they were only doing returns for store credit regardless how you paid for it.
i asked to see a manager and I felt the line of thirty groan befind me... I mean what could I do??? be the bad guy or just let it go?
i argued and complained... I mean these pants cost me $30 bucks... and now I have a credit for $30 for a store I had never been to before and a store I will never shop in again.
and I don't even earn interest on my money... Party City are thieves!!!
