Treats their employees terribly. Doesn't train them properly. Cruel and discriminatory policies such as not allowing workers to move from register and not allowing female workers to stock or assist customers with large items. Prices on their sale items are good though not as deeply discounted as they used to be. Their regular prices are lousy. Location is on skid row - they have to close early because it becomes dangerous in the evening. I gave them an extra star because they do have a large selection. Lines are long and very slow because they refuse to use scanners and have an idiotic system - their registers often won't void only one item. If you don't want an item , the cashier has to void the whole thing and sometimes wait for a manager. I don't shop here anymore due to the cruel way they treat their employees and all the rotten, entitled, screaming customers have. Ugh.
My go to for party supplies. This place is amazing and offers free parking! Sometime check out can get backed up.
They have a very wide selection but their prices are ridiculous! Go to Costco and order things online. I've had great experiences buying mirrors candles and vases from different websites for less than half the price and paid standard delivery (received items next business day). Plates, silverware, cups and napkins go to Costco! I assumed I was getting a deal at Moskatels because of the kind of store it is, only to find better quality for much lower prices at Costco. Moskatels was a great store back in its day but I am very disappointed with the direction they have gone. Needless to say I will not going back for future events.
Positive: Large selection, with something for everyone. Reasonable item pricesNegative: Extremely high shipping costs, they overcharge a lot for UPS Ground and it has taken up 5 days in the past until it was even shipped. Shipments of similar weight and size via UPS, to and from the exact same cities, cost half with other companies.Poor packaging (items that come in gift boxes are not bubble wrapped).
Great prices for crafts and party supplies. Couldn't find other retailers who could beat their prices.
