When Concord closed, our account was transferred to Braxton. We dropped off two identical pairs of men's dress pants and when we picked them up, one pair was "scorched" (Braxton employee's words). They were taken to the main facility in Burlington to be seen by the manager. I received a call telling me that I must have washed them by accident and ruined them myself, or my husband wore them in the rain and ruined the texture. I have no words for the lack of responsibility taken by management. To make matters worse, as I was leaving the store, the counter person laughed at me with the customer next in line. We will never return to Braxton and will make sure that we tell all of our friends and neighbors about the experience
I wanted to thank the guys for all the hard work they did. We had a mess and they came in did an outstanding job. Professional and hard work. We cou…
Bad experience with daughters wedding dress. It was not finished when promise, did not have the embellishments promised, had weird looking tucks on the hemline, and made us pick it up on the wedding day without being pressed and making us wait in the SUV outside for a hour. While she finished up the hemline. IT should have been ready weeks ago. Excuses were, on vacation, an emergency, yada yada yada. I think maybe "Prom Season" Dress should have taken priority since Jean had it for 3 months and 8 fittings. My advise to you is: Stick to your WORD, don't give brides theRUN AROUND, do what you PROMISE to the dress, and DONT PROCRASTINATE!!!!!
My old friends Kristen and Melissa met guys in the bathroom there. They both would be naked in there waiting for random guys to have them get fukd for cents or free. They made an average of 3 cents or less per guy. They would meet about 6 guys a day in there.
I will never go back to Amkor’s alterations woman, Jean. At my original fitting to have my bridesmaid dress altered, I asked her for an estimate on the couple of things we had done. She beat around the bush and wouldn’t tell me any numbers except the price of the cups we would be adding. I got sick at the end of the appointment and left, but we had already established what needed to be altered and pinned those parts. I asked about prices before I left and got no answer. I came back to pick the dress up and she was charging me an outrageous amount-over 3 times what my normal seamstress charges for the same work. Just to bring up a straight hem about an inch or two cost ~FIFTY DOLLARS! The alterations added up to be over the cost of the elegant bridesmaid dress. Jean was nice during the fitting but very rude when I brought up my concerns with pricing. She was 15 minutes late to our appointment, and forgot she even had an appointment with my sister who was supposed to have her wedding dress altered here (went somewhere else after Jean forgot the appointment). When my sister called Jean with concerns about the price of my alterations, she held the phone away from her head and rolled her eyes. I compared her prices to my regular seamstress and she kept telling me it was ridiculous to compare…for the same services. In short:1.While she was nice at first, she was very rude when I was concerned that she was very much overcharging me2.I asked for a price list the first visit and she wouldn’t give me even an estimate while I was fitted or when I called to confirm my second appointment3.The prices were OUTRAGEOUS for what the work was- I have compared with multiple seamstresses in the area for the same work and gotten estimates of $50-$60 for Jean’s prices of ~$160After a lot of haggling, she did give a discount, but it was still nowhere near what other seamstresses charge. The owners were nice and understanding, so I can’t judge how the dry cleaning services are, but I will never return to Amkor for alterations. I went to her because she was recommended for formal occasion dresses, and wish I had stuck with my regular seamstress who has proven herself excellent quality/price for the same work.
My wife and I are new to the area and noticed a nearby dry cleaner 5 min. from our house. We dropped off some clothes and asked when the soonest we could pick them up (This was on a Monday. The lady said that everything would be ready for pick up two days later (Wed) and we prepaid for our order. On Thursday I stopped by to pick up the clothes, only to find a sign on the door saying that the employer had to step out but would be back by 5pm...I checked my watch and noticed it was 5:40 and still no one was there. Giving them the benefit of the doubt I returned Friday at 2pm to try again. The woman told me that only half the order was there and the remainder of it could be picked up in a half hour. Angrily I agreed to return @ 3. Upon my return I found another note taped to the door saying that she again had to step out but would be back by 2:30p. I waited for 15 min and still nothing. Returning back for the fourth time I was finally able to get my dry cleaning. I expressed my frustration to the woman but my words fell on deaf ears. She seemed smug and carefree about my disgust and offered no discount or apologies. Needless to say I will not be returning and hopefully neither will you.
What can I say...Jean is amazing!! My daughter Allie brought her bridesmaid dress to Jean to be fitted. Allie was having medical issues and kept losing weight. Jean was so patient and made sure she kept Allie coming back in to make sure the fit was right. Allie's dress was stunning thanks to Jean, and the cost was amazingly low considering all of the alterations! I would recommend her to everyone. She is very talented and a very wonderful, caring person!
