I wanted to return a coat I purchased at Bachrach because I didn't like the way it fit. However, the store at keystone at the crossing in indianapolis refused the return of my expensive coat because they said I wore it once. Mind you, I had my receipt and the coat was brand new. Maybe I would expect a rigid return policy if I had purschased the coat at Wal-Mart, but not at a high end store like Bachrach. Or, even if they provided me with an in-store credit or a discount on my next purchase would have consoled me. But to send me away with no recourse is archaic is unfriendly. BTW, the fuel to the fire was the fact that the manager was a crass snob. Maybe I should take their merchandise to their neighbors at Nordstroms who know something about how to treat people who actually spend money in their store, especially in a down economy. Advice: Whatever you do, don't shop this store if you believe in 21 century customer service.

DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS STORE! My Mother -in-law spent nearly $600 at their affiliate on line (Horizon Hobby). HobbyTown comes up on HH's store locater because they are of the same franchise. She bought her four grandson's each a remote control helicopter for $140 ea before tax for Christmas. She was told they were the top of the line and you get what you pay for so she chose the most expensive model (Force RC). She let them know they were for boys 5-10 and they were happy to sell them to her. None of the four helicopters lasted even 10 minutes. My husband read all the instructions and is not stupid, actually very mechanically inclined for an Oracle business person! Anyone will naturally crash these helicopters the first few times until you get the hang of it, and as for kids, FORGETABOUTIT!!! Pieces starting falling off and breaking left and right. When I took them in to let them know how unhappy we were and what a complete rip off they were, they manager basically said "BUYER BEWARE"! He would not exchange, fix, nothing. When I stated that I worked in retail a very long time and you have to stand my your merchandise he told me no can do. I said I would never buy anything here and tell everyone I knew and he basically said fine. He wanted to show me how he could operate it just fine without dropping it. Well good for YOU! He's probably worked there forever and I'm sure he crashed a few when he opened his first box!! I hope these people are found out, and soon!!!

Good product -- Poor Service

Owner/Operator seems to be unableel to effectively deal with the public. He has an open storefront, but seems irritiated at walk-in traffic, much prefering to handle business by appointment. Seems easily distracted by little things -- When I visitied, we found a minor problem with the shoes I purchased. I understood teh proboem, and could have fixed it myself at Walmart. But the owner spent almost an hour looking through boxes int eh back fro replacement laces, making multiple notes to call the manufacturer on Monday, and complaining about how this has never happend before.

After purchasing and wearing the shoes for a couple of weeks, the custom "computer designed" inserts purchased for my shoes proved to be unsuitable, casusing my ankles to weaken. When informed of this, the owner became short tempered, and dismissed me with, "Excuse me for trying to help you!".

And I have not yet received the partial refund from Medicare, as promised.

The shoes themselves were of high quaility, but A.D.D. level service makes this place difficult to work with. Suggest you put up with the foot pain for a couple of more hours, and drive to a different store.

I will never go anywhere else! LeeAnn gave me a reading and amazed me with her insights. I am also going to have a Halloween party and Lee Ann is going to be there for our guests! I would recommend this spiritual center to anyone.

Any person who had purchased an e-cigarette will be able to bring his or her own class action law suit against the seller, or join an existing class action and possibly share in any damages awarded to users of this new product which the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] has declared "illegal," says public interest law professor John Banzhaf, who has been leading the battle for FDA regulation of the product. Banzhaf prompted the FDA to warn the public about the dangers of e-cigarettes, including hidden carcinogens and other toxic chemicals, encouraged the several legal actions against them which have already been brought or are about to be filed, and used legal warning notices to persuade PayPal and Amazon com to give up e-cigarette sales. He is also the man behind the ban on cigarette commercials and public smoking bans, and he has been called the "Dean of Public Interest Lawyers." In response to requests for legal assistance he is receiving from persons who purchased e-cigarettes based upon claims of safety, who subsequently learned that an FDA study showed that they contained deadly toxins and cancer-causing chemicals, Prof. Banzhaf has posted on line a template for drafting a class action law suit complaint against sellers of e-cigarettes. With this simple template, any attorney contacted by an e-cigarette purchaser can easily file his or her own new law suit. This could be important because the plaintiffs and the attorneys who are the first to file class action product liability law suits often end up with the lion’s share of money recovered -- including attorney’s fees -- so a race to the courthouse to be the first to file in each state is quite possible, says Prof. Banzhaf. To file a law suit, a purchaser need not have suffered any medical or other problem as a result of using the product. Prof. Banzhaf explains that the legal actions which have so far been filed against e-cigarette sellers have relied upon consumer protection statutes which do not require any specific injuries. Moreover, such law suits would not be affected by any decision in a federal law suit now pending which seeks to challenge the FDA's jurisdiction over e-cigarettes. The FDA's jurisdiction, and violations of consumer protection laws, are two very different legal issues, says Banzhaf. For those e-cigarette purchasers who do not wish to retain their own attorney, Prof. Banzhaf says they may contact the attorneys who brought the initial class action law suit and seek to join the class or serve as plaintiffs in similar law suits in other states. The legal actions filed to date have contended that sellers of c-cigarettes have violated consumer protection statutes by engaging in unlawful, unfair or fraudulent practices and unfair, deceptive, untrue or misleading advertising. Banzhaf notes that virtually anyone who bought one or more e-cigarettes, based upon claims that they did not contain any of the cancer-causing chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes, would be able to bring a class action law suit in his or her state against the seller. Virtually all states have consumer protection statutes which permit law suits to be brought even if the purchaser suffered no harm from using the product.

A pleasant place to go into for fruit baskets or flowers. I will call in my order next time but was really happy with my first experience.
