FLIM FLAMMERS AND SWINDLERS – I CALLED AROUND TOWN LOOKING FOR THE BEST RATES ON HEEL REPLACEMENT. THEY TOLD ME THEIR RATES WERE $4.50 TO $7.00 PER PAIR OF SHOES. I DROPPED OFF 2 PAIR AND THEY GAVE ME A TAB OF $30.00. I TOLD HER WHAT SHE SAID ON THE PHONE AND SHE DENIED EVER SAYING IT. I WILL NEVER RETURN THERE FOR ANYTHING OR RECOMMEND ANYONE USING THEIR SERVICES. MOST PLACES ONLY CHARGE $6 TO REPLACE A TAP OR HEEL (EVEN AT HAAKY'S IN THE MALL). THEY ARE CHEATING PEOPLE AND I HOPE THEY GET CAUGHT.
Horrible. – I called ahead and was quoted $4/pr for heel repair. When I got there a few minutes later, the same clerk insisted it would be $7. After being lowballed, I arrived on Monday to pick up my shoes and they were not done as promised. When they arrived on Tuesday, light brown shoes were redone in black instead of brown. I wore the first pair out the next day, and they broke within 15 minutes. The store clerk, upon my return, offered no apology, merely a raised eyebrow and a "Yeh, so?"
