Re: “Red Pearl

I used to love this store until they sold me two insects-damaged boxes.
They've always had a great selection of clothing, jewelry, gifts, etc and these two boxes were so cute.
However, three months after I purchased them, I noticed powder all around them.
I placed them on the top shelf of my bookshelves which is why I did not notice the powder before.
As I was not sure where this was coming from, I put the boxes in a plastic bag for a month. The powder was everywhere.
When I went to the the store to show them the boxes with the powder, not only they were rude but they did not even try to be professional by replacing them or giving a store credit.
I paid $100 each box.
I will NEVER go again to this store.

Re: “The Shirt Store

Unfortunately, I took a gamble and bought a few shirts from here. They didn't work out and I thought the service was pretty poor....they are a bit insulting if you don't see everything their way.

Re: “Redberi

The quality of the clothing and handbags is terrible at this store. I recently purchased a $200 bag that I ended up having issues with after only 2 days... I went back to the store to try to return and they wouldnt let me return it. I asked to speak to the owner and they said that she did not accept calls or emails.

Re: “Rob's Shoppe

Your clothing styles are exactly what I look for when shopping around.. And also, your prices are crazy affordable! Nothing at all like what I expected from Williamsburg considering the other boutiques. Definitely coming back with my friends!

Re: “Sean

It is now Feb, 2011. I bought 3 shirts in June of 2010. The following email thread depicts Sean's business Practice succintly:


It has been six months now that you have been in receipt of my payment for three shirts. You had said you'd resolve it in October and I sent you a shirt that I had purchased from you several years ago as a size guide, but you didn't follow through. In fact you didn't even respond to my question regarding color choices at the time.

Stupidly perhaps I believed that you would, so you now have 4 shirts of mine.

I have to say that with the exception of a few incidents with fradulent vendors which I resolved in court, i have never had an experience like this.

This will be last email that I send in an attempt to resolve the problem in this manner. Please send me my money and my shirt.

Thank you.

Good Morning Mr. Norton,

We have a new cut of poplin shirts in. However, rather then sending you the shirts and they don't fit would you send me one of your shirts so I can measure it to insure I send you the proper size.

Please mail it to:

I'm writing with regards to the return of three XXL shirts that I bought over the phone from your soho store. They were beautiful.

When I bought these shirts I made clear that I had bought 8 or 10 shirts at your Boston store 3 or 4 years ago. I was told by [Mr.?] Rossen that I could return them if they didn't fit.

I've now been told that I can only obtain a store credit.

I had no way of assuming that the fit had changed so radically since I last bought clothes from you. I am 6'3 and weight 240 lbs. A store credit is not really very useful to me. The Boston store is now closed and it is unlikely anything there would fit me anyway.

I have been a good customer of yours. I attempted to remain one and it didn't work out. I was acting in good faith and was told that I could return these. I believe that you should return my money.

If you begin to make xxxl shirts I can become a customer again. Thank you.

Re: “Uncle Sam's Army Navy Outfitters

They have an extremely poor customer service with a very dishonest business practice. When I received my order, I was expecting a brand new sealed product, but it arrived without any original sealed packaging and its original manufacturer tags had been removed. I had requested an exchange, but they never responded to my emails. I even tried chatting with them on live chat on their site and the lady was very rude then she cut me off. I even contacted one of their stores via phone and the guy was not friendly nor helpful at all. Their customer service is horrendously the worst online shopping experience I've ever had and they are a real JOKE!! I will never ever do business with them again!!
If you want proof, please do Google search of honest reviews from other unsatisfied customers who have dealt with them with poor ratings. I am one of those unlucky victims of their bad business practice.

Stay away from them. You have been WARNED...

Re: “Floratech

See Karen Black there, the afternoon designer. She's really good with creating custom bouquets. This place is expensive, and they won't kiss your ass but the cool flowers are more than worth it.

Re: “Cohen's Fashion Optical

I purchased a pair of Calvin Klein fames at the Cohen's store on Lexington Avenue and 86th Street, NYC. The cost of the frames was $300. and the progressive lenses cost was $280 plus I paid an additional $65. for the "glare free" lenses. The total cost of these glasses came to $645. At the time that I ordered the glasses, I was informed that I must pay in FULL before glasses can be ordered. Thus, I paid using my AMEX card. The next wk., I went into the store to pick up my new glasses and to my disappointment, I found that I could not see properly. I had the optometrist at the store examine my eyes (the cost for the exam was $40). The exam lasted about 5 minutes and I was told that my own eye doctor wrote a stronger precription for distance for me than I actually needed. I thought that to be somewhat strange since my eye doctor is a very well respected, competent doctor and I have been seeing him for many years. Nevertheless, Cohens re-did the prescription according to their optometrist's prescription and a week later, when I put the new prescription on, I still felt as if I could not see well. It was as if all three lenses (progressives have 3 sets of lenses) were too close together thus, images were merging, or so it seemed as I looked out of these lenses. Nevertheless, I tried to "get used to progressives" as I was told one must do. After 3 days, I went back to the store, and discussed the vision problems I was having. The technician and saleslady at this store were both very nice and helpful throughout. They advised me to have distance lenses put in the frames instead; that I might feel more comfortable. I would then have to use separate reading glasses for reading. I agreed that probably be best. Since progressives are more costly than distance lenses, I asked how much of a credit I would receive. (Cohen's does not offer cash refunds; only store credit.) I was told that I had an $80 credit and I chose an inexpensive frame for readers so I would not have to spend any more money. Suddenly, the manager of the store came out from behind (I had never seen her before), told me that the reading glass lenses would be very heavy and thick (actual lense would pertrude from the lens). I asked to see a sample of what she was talking about and was Shocked to see "coke bottle lenses". My eyesight only requires a 200 strength prescription so I questioned why the lenses need be so thick. The store manager told me that if I wanted to "upgrade" to thinner lenses, it would cost me an additonal $100....(Basically $200 for reading glasses if you include the credit I already had...) I already spent almost $700. in this store. I will not give them another penny of my money. I believe this manager has very poor customer service ability...Considering that there are many other optical stores available for customers to choose from, I would think that this Cohen's would care to treat their customers decently. From my experience with Cohen's I must adivise people to stay away...Go to an eyeglass store that will look out for YOUR EYES rather than have THEIR EYES on your wallet. Go someplace that cares to treat their customers decently, otherwise you might wind up as disappointed and as I.

Re: “Access Artisans

Access Artisans does not pay the artisans who make jewelry and objects of art sold at the store. The owners do not answer phone calls and never returns calls. Do not support this store. Despite their name, Access Artisan does not support the Artists it represents.
