Never Again!! Go to Hallmark for Vera Bradley! – I went to this store several months ago with my children in search of a popular birthday gift (Vera Bradley). I place most of my orders online at Among the Flowers, but wanted to let them pick out a gift locally, or give them the option of a gift card, since this store is known for its large selection of Vera Bradley. Finding a bag was not difficult at all since the girls knew what they wanted. The problem came at checkout. First of all, while I stood and waited patiently at the counter, two other women were asked if they were there first, as if I was not standing there. I did not say anything (I should have), but another customer spoke up and said that I had been waiting. The incident that prompted this review was when I handed the older woman behind the counter my Bank of America Debit Card and she asked to see my driver's license. The debit machine sits next to the register and is handed to you for your pin. When I asked if I could simply put in my PIN number for my debit card, her response was, "Anyone can steal somebody's PIN. I need to make sure this is your card." In an effort not to embarrass my children, I politely pulled out my FLDL and she said, "See, it is yours." My only regret was that I did not address her improper behavior in front of my children, give her the merchandise, and leave that store empty handed. Don't worry, I have vowed to never be treated this way again!! If you have to purchase Vera Bradley locally, go to Greg's Hallmark. They are always very friendly and every customer is treated the same whether you are buying a $.99 card or a $125 Vera bag. Also, head to Brandon Mall for your Brighton needs.
