Several years ago, I had a run-in with an employee of Suburban Lock and Key. The employee became belligerent, hostile, and threatening, almost to the point of physically assaulting me. I called their corporate office, and the owner of the company, a Mr. Kroll promptly called me back. What happened after that was nothing short of bizarre and unnerving. Mr. Kroll (or Krull) proceeded to call me a liar, said that his employee had done nothing wrong, and then hung up on me.
On February 5, 2014, Suburban Lock and Key made the local news. A local SPCA agent had found a stray kitten with a handcuff attached around it's neck. The handcuff was unable to removed with a conventional handcuff key, so the agent took the cat to the nearest locksmith, which was Suburban Lock and Key at 3122 Delaware Ave, Kenmore, NY. The locksmith provided a key to remove the lock, but only after charging the SPCA a $25 fee. I recognize that businesses must make a profit to remain viable, but to charge a non-profit agency $25 for something that took less than 2 minutes is despicable. There is no way for this business to make the situation "right." Their reputation for overcharging is well-known in the surrounding community, and this incident reinforces the fact that they are greedy, uncaring and unethical.
