Best Customer Service – I was in today to prep for a whiffle ball tournament I do with my friends every year! The staff was very friendly and awesome about helping me pick out a wig for the tournament as well as helping my sons find some little goodies. I have been in many times over the years and always have a great experience. Thanks again Pierre's for being there for me! BTW... love the new girls on staff!
Best Service Ever! – My wife and I walked into the store assuming it would be like every other Halloween costume place. That was far from the case. Pierre's has everything from makeup, to wigs, to ordering shoes, and beautiful costumes. The prices were great for the product as well! Customer service was phenomenal. Alterations were included in the rental price and the employee we worked with paid a huge amount to detail. I felt very welcome and will definitely be renting from Pierre's Costumes again.
Awesome selection of makeup! – I was worried that i couldn't find the make-up i needed for the play I was in at this time of year, but Pierre's had exactly what i needed! The staff that helped me showed me how to use some of the effects stuff like the blood capsuls and eyeblood! It was hard for me to go out the door with only what i needed for my show! I got some vampire fangs and some great costumes on clearance! Check it out!
This is THE place! – You cannot go wring with this place. great low prices, good customer service and a really great quality product. I was blown away by how nice the costumes were and found the staff to be really nice. Customer service is great since I didn't know what I needed and they helped me out.
I cannot imagine finding any place quite like this place in the city. This is one of my favorite shops.
Awesome customer service and great costumes – This place is the only place to go. Run don't walk, they will absolutely put you in the best looking costume around. Staff are so creative and happy. I found this place to be ever so much fun to visit.
Raggedy and Dirty – Worst experience of my life. The costumes were raggedy and dirty. The prices to rent were outrageous. The staff made it seem as though they were going into a warehouse to retrieve an elaborate and beautiful costume. My husband and I watched as the staff pulled dirty costumes from rubbermaid bins or boxes. I would never recommend this place to anyone. I think Pierre should hang up the costume business.
Great selection, nice staff – The staff really care. You can tell that they like working there since they are so upbeat and willing to help. The costumes are seriously nice, and are custom tailored to you. It was like playing dress-up. We rented two really nice quality costumes and bought some accessories to go with them. Next time I need a costume, I will be back.
They are awesome – I went there to find costumes for a Victorian themed wedding me and my wife had to go to, and it was a great experience from the moment we stepped in the shop. I admit I didn't have any idea what to expect, but the staff member we worked with was very helpful so our costumes were unique and very stylish. I'm definitely going there for Halloween next year.
A life saver for Backstage Moms! – I was in recently for make-up purchases for a high school theater show that I was helping out on; my son is in the show and I'm helping with the make-up and costumes. The staff was very nice and helpful and they helped me to figure out what would work best for the show, (we have 40 kids in the show). We are doing standard stage makeup with some 3D effects and stage-blood. The place was huge and they seemed to know where everything was and were very quick about finding things. The staff also seemed to really care about the shop which was very clean and inviting. They were actually cleaning as I was in and changing their displays and obviously having fun! It must be the best place on earth to work!! I will be back again and not just for my son's school plays!
The costume shop for those who are in the "know" – I am a regular at this place. I am in the event and promotions business. I obviously need an establishment that always comes through for me. Pierre's always sets the bar higher and higher! They are very, very creative and the staff are whizzes at brainstorming and helping me plan my events (I get all the credit). There is practically nothing they can't find, make, or locate at Pierre's Costumes. they do far more than costumes as well, they offer shoes,hats, masks, wigs, table dressings, props, swords, makeup, and so much more. Bottom line is, before you assume they don't have it, ask to speak to a manager, and they can probably get it, or it is hiding in a corner of the huge shop (it stretches from 3rd street almost to 2nd street). The people there are nice, friendly and ever so nice to work with. I will not go anywhere else.
