On Sunday, April 13, 2003, My wife and I visited your store, # 6647, at around 2:30 PM.
We went to the Garden department looking for plants and good deals.
We saw a shelves of ground covers flats with a sign that read, "Ground Covers $2.37. Being such a good deal I wanted to purchase them. They rung up at $12.00 each.
The cashioer called for a manager to check for the right price. A person named Steve arrived. I showed him the shelves. In a rude and firm voice he said, "Nothing here is $2.37."
I suggested that the sign should be removed since it confuses customers. Steve said, as he was rearrenging the flats, "You're just an idiot."
I asked Steve to call the manager. Steve turned to an employee named Erick and told him, "This idiot wants a manager. As I waited for a manager, Steve again addressed Erick and asked, "Have you call Paulo for this idiot? I walked away to find the manager, as my wife waited for me, Steve went on to call me an idiot twice again.
I found the manager named Paulo, explained the situation. He asked me to put it in writing.
My wife put back all the other plants, totalling $ 120.00 and we left to take our busines to a competitor.
I do not understand why I was treated this way. I feel that Steve should be retrained on how to talk to customers. Someone should check shelves to make sure items are properly priced.
