Free Range Rude!! – A friend and I were first time shoppers at The Children's Boutique. Upon entering, we were bulldozed by an over zealous salesperson who was determined to show us everything in the store and proceeded to hover over and follow us to the point of distraction, even after we told her that we wanted to browse. When we made our decision to purchase and brought the item to the checkout counter, there were three women working behind the counter all with an attitude. We were made to feel by the woman who handled our transaction that we did not spend enough money when she showed her annoyance with the comment "Are we gift wrapping this, putting it in a bag OR WHAT?" We will NEVER shop in this store again.
I will NEVER set foot in this place again – This place has offended me on so many levels and occasions. First of all, the red headed woman in the shoes dept. tried to sell me a pair of shoes for my son that were WIDES. I noticed it since my son has very narrow feet and she acted like I didn't know what I was talking about. She said they fit him and acted really haughty about it even though he was swimming in them. THEN she sold me a pair of shoes for my daughter that was in the wrong box and when I questioned her on the size she said they ran really big. When I looked in the shoe, they were the right size. WHY WOULD SHE LIE LIKE THAT? It was truly strange.
Today, however, was the last straw. I went in with my 4 year old to buy a gift for a birthday party. Right as we picked out a toy, he needed to stop and use the restroom. The employee upstairs said it was broken. The employees downstairs said theirs was broken too and they themselves had to use the restroom at the Mc Donald's next door. YEAH RIGHT! Then I see a woman (who must be a regular) ask if her daughter could use the potty and the redhead from shoes takes her right to this door marked PRIVATE that used to be a door marked RESTROOM. How can you tell a 4 year old who is doing the potty dance that he can't go here, he needs to go next door, get someone to unlock the door etc (BTW< they were very nice at Micky Ds). Also, we were just about to buy this gift and we had to leave the store! Everyone I know hates this store, sometimes we resort to going there because it means you don't have to drive but SERIOUSLY, I am telling everyone I know to boycott this place. There is no reason to continue to patronize an establishment that has consistently rude employees. The merchandise can be found elsewhere without the lies and attitude.
Horrible experience – Worst shopping experience in recent memory. I bought a pair of sandals for my daughter and then returned them when a strap broke the next day. They took the shoes back and promised to send me a new pair, which never happened. Then they promised to refund me, which also never happened. I dealt with two females there who were consistently rude, even offensive, and consistently untruthful. 2 months later I am still trying to get refunded. I highly recommend staying away, even though it is difficult to find a place to buy childrens' shoes.
