If I could rate 0 stars I would.

As a repeat customer and resident of Iowa City, I expect some semblance of respect from local stores I continually go out of my way to support. Heading home with my dog in tote, I decided to stop briefly for something I've been needed for the house. I was inside for less than two minutes when the owner reprimanded me (via shouting across the store) for leaving my dog in the car while I was inside. While experiencing slight confusion, I calmly explained that the car was running, AC on, window cracked, in the shade, I didn't intend on staying for more than ten minutes, and the vehicle was visible from the shop window so I could keep an eye on him.

She disregarded my statement in which, rather than shaming her for questioning my integrity with my companion, I attempted to reassure her I have my dog's best interests in mind. She continued to address her opinion on the situation in an inappropriate manner- embarrassing me in front of other customers, she asked if the car was REALLY running, if the AC was REALLY on, and if my dog was REALLY okay. I quietly returned my item to the shelf, walked out, and was greeted with a cooled vehicle and a happy dog.

I will take my business elsewhere.




Over priced for junk products. Staff was very rude and told me "She was very busy and did not have time for this" as I was checking out and digging in my change purse for 20 cents. I will not be returning as they seem to not want my business.
