I too, was hesitant, today, after reading the bad reviews several users gave this store, on Google. I discovered they were right. A heavyset lady with short blonde hair stopped me at the door. I explained I was there to have my three year old daughter sized for shoes for ballet and tap. I wanted to get an idea of prices and how well they fit, prior to purchase. No go. She said she will not allow me to even look at the shoes, until they are paid for. She was exceptionally rude. I told her I was not about to shell out $50 and discover my daughter doesn't even like the class. She continued to block the way and made this mom who is new to the dance world feel very unwelcome. I departed and told her the Google reviews about rude service were right. I told her I 'd be writing my own review and she said in a b*tchy way, "Yeah? Whatever!!" I left and looked on Google for another and found Shoes Unlimited and Dance Apparel on Telegraph Rd in St. Louis. The lady on the phone was very polite and informed me they even have a 15% military discount....and, the shoes are cheaper. She even was willing to size my daughter at Shoes Unlimited, before I agreed to purchase them. I was so pleased at Shoes Unlimited, I bought a bunch of stuff and the shoes. Thank you, Center Stage for having such crappy service. I found a fabulous store, thanks to you. Shoes Unlimited, on Telegraph Road in St Louis. YOU replied that you basically didn't care if I wrote a review. OK. Here it is.
Very Helpful! – I was hesitant to make my first visit to Center Stage, based upon some old review that popped up on the search engine. However, I can honestly say the folks there have always been extremely nice and helpful when I've shopped. They are very patient with me when I am unsure what I need (I'm not much of a 'Dance Mom') and always make sure I'm satisfied with my purchases.
Recently, we decided to use them for their costume rentals and I must say I recommended this shop to several people based upon my experience.
Great store, selection , great customer service and the prices were NICE – This costume shop was well worth the visit and the prices were NICE :) If you have a themed party or dressing for Halloween or Mardi Gras, I would say give CenterStage a chance. Just a little less than a half hour of drive time from Saint Louis City but it was well worth it. The Owner was very friendly and helpful and suggestive and you can tell she enjoys her work. I found the prices of the costume rentals much more reasonable than Remember Me in St Louis, (and we know how rude they are at Remember me ) and some of the costumes were identical. Give CenterStage a Chance next time you consider renting a costume.
