My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to buy an engagement ring and up until we came to Jack Sutton our experience was less than average. Every other place was filled with aggressive sales people that jumped on us the moment we walked in the door and literally stalked us like an animal stalking its prey. When we were looking we MADE SURE to tell the sales people that we were most 8-10 months away from buying (which was true). That didn't stop most places from trying to start with their great pricing, pushing rings endlessly on my girlfriend's finger, their financing options, why buying now would be the best time to buy, etc.What a different and pleasant experience Jack Sutton Fine Jewelry was! From the moment we walked in we were greeted as we expected, but something was different about this place. My girlfriend and I never got the feeling they were "selling" us something. They simply asked us what brought us in today and we let them know we were looking at engagement rings, but were 8-10 months away. The consultant (notice I didn't say salesperson) didn't have a disappointed look on their face knowing they weren't getting a sale today or even in the near future. He walked us over to the engagement section and proceeded to give us a detailed and educational background on diamonds, the different shapes, and the 4C's. I used to think all diamonds were essentially the same, but his tutorial gave me the insight my girlfriend and I were looking for. He then asked us really good questions that showed he actually cared what was important to us and that his goal was to make sure my girlfriend got the ring she always wanted. The best part is that knowing we weren't ready just yet he didn't even throw out pricing or push us to divulge a budget. About the 3 months passed since our visit and I got a phone call from him just to check in and see how things were going. I appreciated this a lot. We scheduled a second appointment to come by and take the next step in the whole process. When we walked into our second appointment at Jack Sutton Fine Jewelry it sealed the deal for us. Based on our likes from our 1st meeting he had picked out a beautiful array of rings for us to look at. I think he even said he went to the other store on Royal St. because they had some options that he knew would be good for us. Sure enough, my girlfriend loved one of the rings. That 8-10 months turned into only 3 months because of the great customer service and attention to detail! Thanks Jack Sutton Fine Jewelry! See you down the road for wedding bands!
I am very happy to report that I was personally contacted by the owner Giselle who remembered the transaction and extended a store credit on the erroneously purchased dress! So, I retract my review on Yelp and YP. She does have some cute clothing.The only reason this place gets a 1 star is because I cannot leave a review without clicking on a star. Don't go here. The owner will talk your head of to the point of distraction. I mistakenly purchased a sale item that the owner acknowledged did not fit when I tried it on before checkout. I realized my error immediately and contacted the store. I did not request a refund but only store credit toward an immediate purchase of 2 additional non sale items. Apparently this chatterbox would rather have a one time $60 sale to a patron who will NEVER SHOP THERE AGAIN than have my immediate additional sales and continuing business. Its her loss. There are tons of shops on Magazine. I'll shop elsewhere from now.
I don't usually write reviews online but I had such a nice experience at Adler's, I wanted to recommend them. My wife and I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and I wanted to get her something special. I chose Adler's because I knew about the store's rich history in New Orleans and always admired their store in the Towne Center here in BR. I immediately explained to a sales person that I needed help with a custom design , and she referred me to the store manager, who was extremely helpful. He sat with me for more than an hour and we came up with several ideas. Over the course of the next few weeks, we exchanged several emails and created a truly special ring for my wife that I would never have been able to do on my own or find in another store. She absolutely loves it and is already looking forward to the next special occassion!
I adore Spa Reyna! I have definitely found my new place for Brazilian. They give you the option between hard and soft wax and the esthitician makes everything as easy and painless as possible. They take such good care of you here as well, I've been to a few esthiticians in the city and I've always had problems but not here. The staff is so friendly and helpful in every way possible. When I go into a Spa or Salon I expect to feel like its about me, I want them to be talking to me and making me feel important, I don't want to sit and get my nails done while the techs are talking to there friends. Spa Reyna definitely makes the customer feel important, and valued. I've been telling all of my friends about this place and I even have regular appoinments scheduled. One of the best Spa's in the city!
Excellent salon! Thank you Kelly and Dallas! I felt like a celebrity! The environment is relaxing and spa like. Service was awesome from my initial phone call (to ask if they were comfortable with natural African American hair) to the complimentary beverages and final style. These guys are great. I called and made an appt. because I wanted to switch from my natural state to something sleek for my look that evening. Did I mention I probably have the hair of 2 1/2 persons? They went to work and took the time to blow out and flat iron my hair to soft and shiny perfection! Felt like I was at my home stylist...great conversation and great people. Even my patiently waiting hubby felt at home, he was also thoroughly impressed! Thanks Dallas and Kelly. You are a master at what you do! Debbra & Eric
I typically don't write reviews but this shop Tru Rootz deserves one. Not only did he take my call for a late night appointment but it was after he was CLOSED and worked on my hair until 1am. I explained a few problems that I had. 1) I recently stopped wearing sewins and wanted to wear my hair in a natural hair style. 2) I just couldn't style it and the next day at 9am I had a job interview. I called Tru Rootz and the stylist surprised me and he worked a miracle on my hair. I was very pleased on how my hair turned out. Tru Rootz is one of the best natural hair shops that I've been to in a very long time. I enjoyed the courteous service and the personal touch. This is a Class A shop , the man that gets the job done...and I want to tell him thank you so much and I did get the Job!
I grew up in New Orleans but moved away years ago. When I got engaged, I knew I wanted to return home for the wedding, and I always thought of registering at Adler's as a tradition. I knew my family wuld expect me to register there so I went to Adler's store downtown and met with a lady on the 2nd floor to pick out my patterns and crystal. I had a great time!! They have so many patterns and designs to choose from, and the saleslady was really helpful. My wedding is only weeks away and I have had so much fun getting the little Adler's registry cards in the mail recently telling me what someone bought for us. It's so much easier than getting the actual stuff and I don't have to worry about storing it!! I can't wait to get all my new china :)
My very first watch came from Adler's - it was a Swiss Army when I was in high school that was a gift from my parents but I loved it. Every time I passed the store I would go in and look at their watches and the sales people were usually really nice and they would let me try things on. This year, when I was finally able to buy myself a Rolex, I chose Adler's because they had the best selection. I researched it a lot but Im so happy I decided to buy from them because they made it a really great shopping experience. One of the Adler's was there when I bought my watch and he and I talked about Rolex and the different styles and he really made me feel good about my choice. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a nice collection for me!
we've been customers in this place because of Glen, He used to cut the hair of every member in the family, my girls loves him, my son and my husband -both - are very 'particular' about the way they want their hair, and only trust Glen for that!Today we went there and they told to us h's no longer working there, and we left...Then we drive to the Super Cuts that are located around the corner on Jefferson (where Walmart is on Harahan) and, we were so Happy to find Glen there!Other ladies at Mega Cuts are nice and do an okay cuts, and definitely we feelsso much confortable with Glen's way to works!so, here we are now... on Super Cuts, following Glen!:)
I recently visited Spa Reyna for a massage and was extremely pleased with my experience. The massage with Chris was excellent! She really worked the kinks out of my back but made the whole experience super relaxing. I've also visited Tracy for a facial and waxings... she is simply the best. Hands down. Extremely knowledgeable, gives amazing facials and a delight. This really was the best spa experience I've had in New Orleans. I love the small space. I never felt rushed or shuffled around. The entire space feels organic and homey... not like a big box spa. I will definitely return and encourage everyone to visit.
