I recently went to Marjie Allon to purchase wedding announcements on a neighbor's reccomendation. They have a vast selection of invitations, stationery, etc. and I was very pleased with the result. However, the service was terrible. My mother and I were greeted with indifference and disdain - we should have left right away. We selected announcements & were told they would be ready in 10 days to 2 weeks, with an additional 1-2 days to address envelopes with their calligraphy machine. A few days later, I got a phone call saying the proof was ready & asking me to come in and approve it. When I entered the store, our contact ""Diane"" was chatting with someone I can only assume was another employee. There were no other customers in the shop. She looked at me as if with disapproval and asked very rudely ""Do you need something?"". I identified myself & told her why I was there, at which point she sighed and grudgingly interrupted her chat to find my proof.\r
After 3 weeks and no notification, my mother called & was told ""Oh yes, the announcements are here."" We said we would drop off a list of addresses for the envelopes and were told that would take an additional 1-2 weeks. Far from the 1-2 days we were originally told. Needless to say, we ended up hand addressing the envelopes ourselves.\r
Marjie Allon has a great selection, but if you want personal service that treats you with respect, look elsewhere. The employees are rude, arrogant snobs who seem indifferent to the fact that customers make a choice to spend hundreds of dollars at this establishment rather than another. Choose another establishment.
Pros: Great selection, high quality stationery
Cons: Rude, indifferent, negligent service
