I bought my first LV (damier Speedy) a couple of weeks ago. Im soooo in love at the mo but I was NOT happy with the service I got in the store. Firstly I decided to buy it on a Friday evening as I knew the store opened till 8pm so I could go home from work first and then go (its like a 3 min walk). My Fiance was working a little later then usual (and walks right by on his way home) so I told him I would meet him outside the store at like 7pm so he could then walk me home. My Fiance is a manual worker (makes and fits windows) so while his overalls were a little dirty/gruby he was not filthy! So in we go to LV and the guy behind the counter nearly has a stoke when we walk in....... he looks my DF up and down about a million times and eventually (like after us standing there for like 5mins, and we were the ONLY customers) comes over to ask if im ok....I ask to look at a few diff bags (he was shocked to see I knew what I was talking about with all the diff names etc) So I pick up a speedy and take like 3 steps to my left to get a view in the mirror and he comes running out from behind the counter......which implied to me that he thought I was going to run out of the store with it!!!! So eventually I decide on my speedy and say, 'I'll take it'' he goes ''Oh really?''!!!!!!! So he goes to the till and rings it up and he says 445, he didnt even say please. So I hand over 450 in cash and he looks at it like he has never seen currency in his life and goes ''Oh, Cash!!!''. I'm like, yea, is that ok??? And he just huffs and puffs off!!!!! I was fuming at this point and my DF whispers to me, Aoibheann, tell him to shove that bag where the sun dont shine and we will get it for you somewhere else!!!! Unfortunatley that is the one and only LV store in my lil old country and while we do travel to the UK on a reg basis for football matches etc I really wanted it there and then and wanted to be able to return it easily enough if anything went wrong! Sorry for my long rant but it really did ruin my first purchacing experience!!!! I did not like the way SA looked down on my DF when Im almost positive DF earns twice if not three times more then the SA!!! Am I the only one who has been treated like this! 2 Q's (for anyone who hasnt fallen asleep yet reading ) should my speedy have come in a box instead of just the dust bag and should my receipt have come in a nice little LV card or something instead of it just being shoved in my hand with my 5 change????
