My boyfriend and I were looking for a wig..I was making a hair transition, and was in desperate need of something ""temporary""..
First of all, we phoned the 775 number, and it was no longer working..then we had to call (via the cell phone), information which costs $1.25..They connect my boyfriend who said the proprietor barely speaks english..he was asian..we didn't mind this..
But the neighborhood was not exactly the place where i'd leave my car unattended..you walk up to what you think is the front door, and it's the back door..the sign says ""use other side"", both doors have heavy chains on them..
You finally figure, you have to go around the perimeter into the so-called shopping area..the proprietor is some shifty looking figure sizing you up..he's the one standing outside of the shop pacing while smoking cigarettes..
I walked in, and no one had nothing to do with me..i certainly didn't dress up for this occasion, knowing where i was going...The asian staff only stared..they wouldn't come near me..i was dressed down, but everything was designer, or high quality..one ethnic male other than asian, sized me up, and walked right past me, and helped other women wearing weaves, and cornrows..looking for beauty products..
i stood there for over 15 minutes looking at their wigs..no one bothered to assist me at all..i wasn't interested in the products..which i think is their specialty..i only came in for a wig...and they were absolutely of no assistance whatsoever..
Their wigs? some of them looked jacked, rough, and uncared for..the ones that i was interested in, were placed high on racks, way out of reach..whenever i looked for help, the ethnic dude would tend to someone else..very quickly..so i did the same thing, i got out of there, very quickly..
if you have a nice car, make sure someone tends to it..while you're in the shop...next time, we'll take the honda...
