NEVER GO TO PARTY CITY IN CANTON, MI
I had the worst experience EVER!! I have NEVER been treated so poorly. I should have called the police and made a police report!! He tried to pull a bait and hook. I went into the store to buy some balloons for a bridal shower I was throwing. I had received 3 different coupons for balloons in the mail earlier that week, so I was so excited I could save some money. One coupon 25% off total order, second coupon $1.99 per mylar balloons, $7.99 for dozen latex balloons(standard colors). I needed 3 mylar balloons and one dozen ballons. I stopped by the local dollar store to buy some balloon weights to save some money and then went to Party City. Here is my horrible experience.
First, the MANAGER told my that my balloon weights I had brought in would pop my balloons and that I should purchase his balloon weights for $1.99. THEY WERE SELLING THE EXACT SAME BALLOON WEIGHTS THAT I HAD BROUGHT IN!! They even had an order ready for another customer using the same weights. I should have left the store at that point, but said that's ok. As the staff was filling the balloons I decided to browse the store. The MANAGER followed my asking me again if I wanted to buy his balloon weights. I said no thank you, but asked if he had some sort of balloon bag to help transport the balloons. He said that he did for $1.99. I said I would take a look and the bag WAS A GARBAGE BAG!!! HE TRIED TO SELL ME A CLEAR GARBAGE BAG FOR $1.99.HAHAHA I laughed and said "THat's a garbage bag, no thank you" He said "this is bigger than a garbage bag" (with a giggle- sign number 2
Then, I was ready to pay for my balloons and he told me he could not except any of my coupons. The dozen balloon coupon discount was for standard colors only and I had purple and silver balloons. "FINE what about my other coupons?" I said
He said he could not except my mylar balloon coupon either. He said that the mylar balloon coupon was only excepted on orders for happy birthday ballons. The coupon did not say that. The coupon stated ALL MYLAR BALLOONS $1.99. I told him to never mind then and I was going to take my business else where. HE THEN STARTED YELLING AT ME!! Saying I HAD TO BUY THE BALLOONS!! I told him I do not have to buy his balloons and he said he was going to call the police. I told him to call the police because what he was doing was illegal. I should have walked out by that point, but I HAD TO BE AT THE SHOWER WITH BALLOONS IN HAND IN 15 min.and the shower was 10 min away. He then said "Okay, I give you $1.00 off." I told him fine, but that he lost a custome because I will never be back here again. HE SAID THAT was fine because he doesnt care if he lost one customer. I stated I would tell my friends, family and network. He said that was fine be didn't care if he lost 10 customers(I guess he thought I only have 9 friend). He then said take my website address and tell people not to come to his store ( I think he wants to be out of business). So I paid $16.00 for the balloon even though the bill came to $15.86. I told him to keep the change because he is going to need it. HE yelled "No YOU KEEP CHANGE, I THROW CHANGE IN GARBAGE CAN!" He then threw my change in the garbage can and I walked out the door.
