Father Time Antiques
2108 W Belmont Ave, Chicago, IL 60618
I contacted Father Time to sell some clocks I inherited. I was told to send emails, but if I brought the clocks in, they could see them better. So, I drove 150 miles each way. When I arrived, four men were sitting in the shop working; there were no customers. One man came to the car and looked at the clocks. He was dismissive and instead of just saying he was uninterested, preceeded to degrade the clocks. Then, he emphatically stated they "are not up to our standards...we are high-end!" He suggested I contact a clock hobbyist club to sell them, but stated I would be "wasting my time in Illinois" or with any of his clientele.
Overall, dismissive, mean-spirited and arrogant service.
