Ok, just got back from Spirit and Creepers. I wanted a 48" blacklight from Spirit but i did'nt see one. There were a lot of other things (mostly costumes and small props) but nothing i really wanted. Tons of fog juice and stage blood. Went down the street to Creepers and saw some really good deals (fill standing Mummy $49.99 down from $99) Lots of other props but one thing that really really disappointed me at the Creepers store was this......they had one of the full-sized plastic jointed Skeletons left that originally sold for $69.99. I asked the salesman/Manager how much they were and he told me "Half price" and i said "great!". They had one hanging in full view with the price tag still on it and i told the salesman/Manager "i'll take it" but to my disappointment he told me that it was sold despite a "SOLD" sign anywhere on the prop. He also went on to tell me "someone just purchased it over the phone" I felt really angry at this point and told the Salesman/Manager "this is BOGUS! Over the phone i said? whatever happened to first come first served? Then i told him, "i'll give you $50 but he declined saying "i'm sorry, it's sold" I told him how disappointed i was and that i would bet that the prop was taken by store staff (they were in the process of very quickly packing everything up)and how unfair that was, the customer should come first and i left the store with my disappointed little boy. I think this is pure CRAP that if the prop wasn't taken by the store staff in fact, they should deal on a "first come first serve basis". I guess i'm most mad because i have seen this happen time and time again. How many times have you been to a store when the salesperson totally ignores you (a living breathing customer) to answer the [email protected]#@#$#@$% telephone first The day of "the customer comes first" is truly gone. I think next year i will totally pan Creepers and spend my money at Spirit, Canadian Tire or somewhere else........
