Over priced, underserved – I was very clear about my price range, was shown a bunch of dresses. When I asked who the designer was and how much the dresses were I got huge amounts of attitude. Not only were the dresses way more than my price range but the salesgirl refused to tell me the name and style of the dress I liked. Perhaps afraid that I would find it for much less somewhere else? You were right, I found the exact same dress at Vows in Newton for half the price and half the attitude.
Out of price range – I went here with my friend to find a wedding dress for her. She was very clear with the sales lady about her price range and styles she liked. The woman selected 10 dresses, half of which fit the requested style. We spent our time deciding which of the remaining 5 dresses was most flattering. When we finally selected the winner, we started to discuss depositis and fittings. It was only then (since there are no price tags on the dresses) that we discovered that the dress we picked was MORE THAN TWICE the upper end of the stated price range. ALL of the other dresses were twice the price range too. We quickly left, with my friend close to tears. As we were leaving, the saleslady said "Next time we can show you something closer to your price range!" Closer? No thanks. There will be no next time.
