I am so glad I found this page because I thought it was the only one !! I, too, love the merchandise at this shop, but the red-headed girl with the long hair is sooo unfriendly. The other ladies in there are very friendly with me except for her. And it because of their kindness that I would overlook her and keep going back. However, enough is enough. Because of that heavy set girl with the long red hair, my days of shopping at the Red Door are over ! First of all, she never greets me. It's like I'm not even there. Let me first say that I am African-American, and I am not one to label people prejudiced over one isolated incident. I allow people to have an off moment or bad day as we all do. But, I cannot tell you how many times I have walked past this girl and she doesn't even acknowledge me, but let a non-black person walk by right behind me & see wont she speak to them !! It's so obvious. At first I was like, ""Wow"". Then, I just kept about my business since some things aren't worth the energy. \r
Then, one time I went there & saw this beautiful leopard print ottoman. I was touching it and she looked at me and said, ""Excuse me, that's not for sale. One of our employees is about to buy that."" I said okay, then politely backed off and walked away. It's like she was annoyed that I was even looking at it. Logically speaking, why in the heck is it on the floor if it's not for sale ?? Just put it in the back room. Then, there was another incident when I asked a young man there what color tickets were 50% off that week. He didn't know the answer, so he walked over to ask this same girl with the long red hair. She told him the answer, but also threw in there that I should have gone on Facebook to find that information out. Really lady ?? I didn't respond to her since she wasn't talking TO me. After dealing with this girl's stank attitude numerous times, I didn't go in there for several months. \r
When I did finally go back, I found this gorgeous vase with floral stems inside for only $10. Even though I hated to, I asked her if the stems were a separate price. She looked at it and said that the vase shouldn't even be priced that low, then she took it to some guy to ask him if it was even priced right. Now, mind you I didn't ask about the vase. That was going to be $10 regardless since that's what it was advertised as. I only asked if the stems came with it. She could see what a good deal it was & didn't want me to have it at that price. Anyhow, she came back and said it was fine. I took the vase and walked off. I'm pretty good at overlooking ignorance especially since the other ladies in there are so nice to me. But, I just can't anymore with her. My last straw was this week. I went in there and asked her how their consignment worked. She seemed so annoyed that I was even inquiring. The entire time she talked to me, she was looking down or away. All I saw was the color of her eye shadow because she wouldn't even make eye contact with me. It was so apparent she didn't want my stuff or my business. So guess what, Red Door ? You got it ! When I walk in there and see this girl, my whole mood flattens. So, I've decided to spend my hard-earned dollars elsewhere. It's yard sale & estate sale season, so who needs that ? \r
Oh, and by the way there is another consignment shop down the street from them called The Real Life Store. It is a Christian establishment, and I love going there. I will admit their stuff isn't quite as good as the Red Door (YET) because they are still new in town. But honey, those people have excellent customer service !! They are so friendly & approachable. One day I was in there and really didn't see anything that caught me eye, but because of their great customer service, I went and FOUND some items to purchase just so I could support them. That red head from the Red Door Consignment shop needs to pay them a visit and take serious notes !!
