Hi Ladies- As some of you know from my recent thread http://forum.purseblog.com/coach/bummed-and-need-to-vent-139587.html , I had some bad experienced at my local Coach, not just when I've shopped, but recently it was very bad when I applied. I went in there Thursday to do my pre-order and there was no one in the store. I was the only customer. The manager that interviewed me was standing next to the counter and saw me walk in. She didn't say hi or anything instead she was standing very close to the SA next to her and whispering something to her. Even when I got to the counter (she was less than 2 feet away from me) she didn't say anything and continued to whisper. The SAs were nice, but the whole experience made me feel really bad. OH and do you know, there were 2 new SAs in there in TRAINING. So I wonder when they got hired when I was told they chose not to hire anyone. Long story short, I pre-ordered 790 worth of stuff and walked out of there feeling very ****ty. Here's the dilemma: Now that I put the rest of my list together, I've racked up a list that's right under 5k. I was planning to going into the rude store today, but it's been bothering me all night and today...I just don't feel comfortable giving a store like that 5k more of my money when I've already given them 790 this week. The thought of it internally upsets me. Does that make any sense? I would do the order over the phone with the store in Philly (I'm in VA) that helped me out so much during the last PCE, but I have a store credit I need to use to justify the purchase and I don't think you can use store credits over the phone. The next Coach boutique is 2 1/2 hours away. I'm thinking about driving out there. I had called them earlier in the week and told them I got a call from my local boutique for a pre-order, but haven't received my card yet. She said, come on in, and if you haven't received your card by then, we'll put one aside for you. I just don't want to drive 2 1/2 hours on a weekend when it's going to take away from my time with the SO (we wanted to go out to lunch with friends, see a movie and then go to Harbor Fest that's going on this weekend), but I don't feel comfortable giving the local store my money even though that would save a lot of time and money. Sighs. So, if you were me what would you do? Go to the local store or drive 2 1/2 hrs just to place an order? Sorry it's so long. Thanks in advance.
