All the fun of going there is gone, gone, gone. They immediately get your name written down off your ID due to shoplifters. Or take your ID if you protest... whichever you prefer...either way, you are a criminal the minute you walk in. If you're a little shy, don't go in the door. Hubby and I will be shopping online in a different company. One lady there is super nice, the other not so much. No bathroom access and continuously on surveillance ... No thanks. Treating those willing to spend $$$ like that will sink any store... Fast.
same manager as the one I had as a sales lady down south. Didnt remember me.. and once again tried to upsell me with bad advice and product.. they have some nice stuff but their upper end line of product is a little over price considering the product reviews.. and her knowledge is still more to be desired.. could be a great place but back off on the pressure sales.. I dont need someone breathing down my neck for a sale.
This store could be great.. but it is not!!! The staff is a bunch of women that pretend to know the product.. But to be real, they don't know anything.. The manager was running the show and tried to up sell me like a used car sales person. That wouldn't of been so bad but she tried to sell me a cock pump with out a gauge that was more expensive and cheaper quality than the one I picked out with a gauge.. If this is what they call well trained then they are going to hurt someone from lack off or misrepresented knowledge. no stars for this manager.. She wears glasses and works at both stores. very rude..
Well it used to be a great store until prices went sky high! Then I applied for a job there and met the arrogant, male shavanist pig that interviewed me and now I have an entirely different perspective of the place. I was asked questions like "are you married" and when he noticed my zip code on the application he said, "oh you live in the ritzy Broadmoor neighborhood!" I was appalled! He told me if I were hired it was my job to make the store money, not save the customers money by teaching them how to do something or sew. I would have to ask his permission on most everything. Maybe that's why the employee moral is so low! I know I sure wouldn't want to work for the man! Everything is so much cheaper at Wal Mart or Hancock Fabrics. And the people smile and help you.
I would give 5 stars except for the service is not as reliable or respectful as it could be throughout the staff. Staff is older and assumes you know what you want and where to find it. They don't take kindly to having to walk around the store themselves. I hope I'm not being fair and this was just one person among them who displayed this lackadaisical attitude to a first time customer who plans to be a repeat one if it hounds you to death. lol STILL this is a phenomenal store as far as its content. Unique and well stocked.
Love the hemp clothing, designed with comfort in mind, and perfect wear for the artist in you. Sometimes it's a bit more hectic than I like, maybe because it is tourist season then, but there is another store in Old Colorado City! That is an alternative to seasonal crowds. They have everything you could want at Pyramide! Hats, jewelry, bags, and scarves included.
HI, I LIVE IN MEXICO, BUT I TRAVEL TO COLORADO FRECUELTLY I WOULD LIKE WATCH ITEMS LIST WHICH YOU HAVE ON SALE FOR CHOSE AND BUY WHEN I GO TO COLORADO, THANK YOU SO MUCH ,
The Yarn Outlet has graduated from being a discount yarn store to being a top destination for every yarn from I'm-just-learning-acrylics to designer cashmere, silk, alpaca and organic hand-painted special fibers. Their needle and accessory selection is great and it is now even less likely that you can leave without buying something. The owner is helpful and friendly and so are the knitters, of whom I am happy to be a regular one.
I really like this story, and have followed in through several locations. They are now on North Academy north of Union Blvd ( 5744 n Academy) between a church and a liquor store. Best to shop online first, then visit the store. Otherwise there is just TOOO much to see it all..
They are the most well stocked kitchen shop in Colorado...with all those wonderful little things you never knew you needed and now can't live without.
Not to mention the owners are always there, glad to see people come in, and full of good advice cheerfully offered.
Best place to shop in Colorado springs for any of your cookware needs, they also have the best and most complete cookware store you've ever seen!
Horrible place to go!!!! My boyfriend went there to get elijah the prophet tattood. Full back piece. They butchered him! They gave him hands on the opposite sides of where they should be. The made the arms extremely disproportionate to the body, they completely left out the legs and worst of all theyre idea of a face was nothing but a dripping blob! No eyes no mouth no hair. It looks like the guy was high or drunk off his a** when he did this. He has had two sessions elsewhere to start getting this tattoo fixed and its no where even close to done. These people don't know what there doing. Don't go here!!!!
Why does it feel like one is being ripped off at first and main...from the bad food and attitude at Nawlins to the smell of souring milk at the ice cream store...it just feels like top dollar for getting a stomach ache.

My first experience with them my breaks where squeaking on a fairly new Nissan. We took the car to the service center at my dealership; they said it would be a $450 repair. We took it to aspen and they said it was just a little dust and they cleanned them for around $30. That was a year ago and my breaks are still great. When my old Dodge broke down today I knew who to call. I'm sure they saved me thousands today. They have always been up front about what I need to do and what I "should" do and why. The technician even took me back to the shop, showed me why my car died, what needed to be done and what he was doing. Bonus I had just left the gym and stood in the sun for an hour waiting for the tow truck. I was starved and dehydrated. They have a very nice waiting room filled with free snacks and refreshments. What I was sure was gonna turn into a call to the junk yard only cost me a total of $130. Big shout out and THANK YOU to the Aspen Auto team!
This is about the Test Drive Service Center
So irate! I took my car in because it was making a funny noise (user error). I dropped it off on a Wednesday evening because I was not going to be around Thursday when it was scheduled to be looked at. I was set up with a tech Wednesday to do a ride along to see if he could figure out the problem. He couldn’t at the time. Around 2pm Thursday evening I get a call about the problem. I tell them to fix it. This is when I was told that the parts for my car would be special ordered and that they would not be in until Monday.
I was blown away. My issue with that is that it never came up Wednesday. They never said that if parts were needed they would have to be ordered, because your car is so new (2011). No one ever said you will be out of a car for about five days. I wanted them to put it back together and I was going to pick it up, pay for the parts that I was told later, were special ordered so I had to pay for them, and take my car somewhere else. I should have!
I received no call Monday about my car. I called Tuesday after 11 am and the service chic gets on the phone and says "Oh yeah, we'll have it done by the end of the day today." I ask her why that would be because she told me Monday. I asked her why no one contacted me Monday to let me know they were not done. She replies," Let me look at my call log and see, I called this number (my home number) at 3:40pm yesterday." I'm furious now because she says that she has a log saying she called my house and no one called! I say, no, I have a phone log as well and I was at home, you didn't call me. Then she goes into making oh sounds and mumbling about she thought she did and she doesn't know what happened. The kicker is, I gave them my cellphone number and she had previously contacted me on. So… now she lies about calling my home number? She never even said she left a message. Probably because she knew she was lying. She left a message on my cellphone Thursday.
So, not only did they not call me early in the morning Monday to say they didn't receive the parts and would not be done but they lied about calling me. She said the parts eventually came in around 2:30pm Monday. However, she said the car would not be ready until the end of the day Tuesday. That means they knew Monday morning that they weren't going to be able to fix the car and no one called then. Plus, this job should not take all day. What I’m getting is that no one touched my car Monday when the parts came in and they did not start on it Tuesday morning either.
I will never take my car there again unless it has a warranty issue. I took my car in for services such as oil changes and rotations (I drive a lot). No more. I will no longer pass along their name to those who are searching for cars either.
Keeping my car for six days is one thing, however; my major problem is the lie and then the lack of communication. I should not have to call them to chase down my car. They need to get more competent people in there as well. Obviously those that are working in the service department at the desk are overwhelmed and cannot handle the task they are assigned. Lying is not the answer. Had she admitted she forgot to call me I would have been upset but it is different than outright lying to me.
I will have the work inspected by another mechanic because I don't trust them after reading other reviews and the lie.
What can ah say.
