A & F Jewelry Works, Inc. Reviews (1)
I stopped at this repair shop to have links taken out of my [redacted]s watch and the lady said that the cost would be 44.95. I thought that this was a little high but agreed to do it because the location was perfect and I had to do a little shopping. 10/13/12 I called another Fast-Fix (this one located in Fiesta Mall) and inquired to see what the price would be to have links removed from the same type of watch? 16.95.... the same business charges such a significant difference. This irked me a little so I called the Fast Fix at Arrowhead mall to inquire why this would be. I spoke to a lady who informed me that Fast fix jewerly stores are franchises and can charge whatever they want for the services they provide, she said that the owner of the arrowhead store also owns the stores in Chandler and Scottsdale and went on to say that the work they perform is better than the other franchises. She indicated that the more expensive the watch the more expensive the charge to remove links... I said that the two watches are the same [redacted]s watches so why the price difference. She then indicated that because the watch was ceramic it costs more because ceramic can break if you don't use the correct amount of pressure which was weird because I signed a waiver stating that I would not hold them responsible should my watch break. She then said that the fast fix jewerly repair shops are like Walmart's because their prices vary from store to store... at this point in the conversation I realized the caliber of the person I was speaking to and bid her goodbye. Thus I had the links from two [redacted] watches removed, at the fast fix in fiesta mall, for less than the price of one at the fast fix in arrowhead mall.
