It is not "home" anymore, the prices are exhorbitant (especially for a town with so many out of work or working for minimum wage), the place is filthy, and more. You actually see a sign commanding you to keep your children with you at all times. Really, the place is so tiny as is. And technically, children are children (by law) until they are 18. So, be careful! If you go in with a child who is less than 18 and they are not holding your hand and right by your side at all times, you may just get asked to leave. Ha! All of a sudden, they feel the need for security cameras? Come on - be real. Who would steal that slop of items they are now offering? Lots of people around town have said when they *new* people came, they threw out most of the items in the store. And you call that helping others? They are wasting and caring none for our area or the people here.
The *new employees* are terribly stuck-up and rude, they never smile, and they are cold fish. You don't get greeted when you walk in, they aren't around to ask questions, and they don't even say, "than you," when you leave. They play stupid religious music in there now, too. They put out ads for 10 cent children's clothing or half priced adult clothing, but they charge you full price. They will NOT give you a receipt...so watch out because you won't know you are cheated until you get home. Then what?
Do we have to put up with all this junk? Can't we get Cassie and Debbie back to efficiently and kindly run our hometown store? Those two sisters is what kept people coming back to the store, kept it running well, offered plenty of stock, and helped hundreds of families in our area. Without them....Harbor House does not deserve our patronage or support. Harbor House has now turned a labor of love into a grab of greed.
I am joining the hundreds of others who have said they will NOT shop at that place. It is not Watseka, and we don't want those employees here.
