about Tricoter on Mon Oct 24 23:04:36 -0500 2011

It takes quite a bit for me to post a negative review of a yarn shop, but unfortunately my experience at Tricoter was a very negative one. I was treated very rudely by a sales clerk there. I brought my very well behaved 9 year old niece with me. She held up a skein of alpaca to me and said, "Feel how soft!"

At this point a saleswoman very loudly yelled, "That's VERY expensive yarn and I DON'T think that is what YOU'RE looking for, little girl."

Stunned, I quietly said, "Why don't you just put it back where you found it," when the woman interrupted me and yelled,

"I can put it back FOR her."

My niece, cool as ever, just looked at the woman and said, "I've got it," and calmly set it back down.

We left right away, and unfortunately, they've lost a customer for life. Not to mention that I tell this story to all of my local knitting buddies. People have no idea how rudeness spreads.

In addition to that craziness, all of the salespeople there were quite cold, and I have to agree with other posters that even though it looks pretty cool when you walk in to have things arranged by color, when it comes to practicality this is actually a big problem. Just seems like snobbery to me.
