One of my biggest pet peeves about small businesses is when they close whenever they want. You are supposed to convenience the customer, not yourself. I know this cause I’ve worked retail my entire life. Le Village Marche always is closed early or not open at all on holidays (like Columbus Day, when everyone shops), and recently were completely closed on a Saturday because Oktoberfest was in Shirlington. Let me add that the majority of their stuff I find online for almost half the price. Also, the owner and the manager/associate were talking bad about two customers in front of my group of four WHILE the two customers were still in the store. Last but not least, they have a highlighted note on their counter saying they spent x amount of money on credit card swipes. You’re kidding me. You are RETAIL. You are deterring people from buying overpriced merchandise because YOU don’t want to pay a fee?!?! That’s incredible. Bottom line, “the store” is ridiculous, obviously lazy and inconsiderate.
On a happy note, they do have great merchandise, if only it was marked appropriately. Oh AND if the customer service was much better.
