Hubby and I went to Lloyd Center to run errands, shop and catch a matinee. I dropped off two 14kt bracelets and one 14kt dia cut rope chain necklace at Kassab to be repaired.\r
Mr Kassab gave me a price, I paid and off we went. After about 4 hours we returned to pick up our jewelry and found the repairs to be ghastly -- big goopy looking globs of gold where they'd promised to do 'fine' and 'delicate' repair work. When we asked about the globs, they were rude, condescending, and they spoke to us like we were idiots who didn't know what we were talking about. When pressed to at least remove the excess, they became overbearing and intimidating.\r
The jewelry went in our drawer and will probably be scrapped.\r
Kassab Bros have been around Portland for as long as I can remember, so we expected to be able to trust their work and integrity. \r
We were mistaken. We will NOT be back...
Pros: Beautiful Ready-Made Goods
Cons: Hideous Repairs -- Worse Customer Service
