The Brick Experience - enlightening
I got to the Brick at 6:40am and waited in my car for a while. I was the first one out of my car to the front doors at 7am. There were several other people at the top of the stairs with me at this point and there was really more "milling around" going on instead of a proper line-up forming. I tried to keep my place in front, but one lady ended up slipping through the doors ahead of me and guess what she was there to buy? That's right - the same washer and dryer that I wanted. And guess how many the Brick had at the advertised price - that's right - ONE!!!
800 chain wide were advertised and my store had access to ONE. Needless to say I was livid for several reasons:
1 - i wasted my time and woke up early for nothing.
2 - instead of being a jerk, i had let the lady in the door first and ended up losing my only chance.
3: the Bricks BS misleading scams to get people in the door when they have next to nothing available at those prices.
So, i complained to the manager and he ended up getting me a set from a sister location for the same price. He was apologetic and even went on to say that his store actually had 4 in stock, but three were already spoken for at the time the doors opened at 7am - now WTF is this?? Apparently 3 ppl had basically set up deals with sales people the day before to process their purchase as soon as the sale started. What a bunch of crap. I should have told them to take their LG set and stuff it up their rear, but my wife really liked this set.
So, instead of the first 4 ppl in line at 7am getting first shot at the 4 that they had in stock, only one person got the chance due to their shady sales practices. I hate the Brick - sleazy staff are like leeches when you go in there. I will never buy anything from the Brick again unless i have no other options. I feel somewhat dirty in buying this LG set by even supporting this company.
I may end up regretting the decision to go with them, but it is done now. Never ever going to stand in one of their lineups ever again, not when all this behind the scenes cheating crap goes on with the sale flyers. Unreal.
