The Magic Parlor Reviews (%countItem)
As soon as me and my fiancé walked into the store, the store associate was hyper vigilant of us and even continuously surveyed us with the camera. This was not an issue however, the problem was that she was very obvious about her mistrust in us. It made us feel very unwelcome and uncomfortable as she kept popping up behind us in close proximity to check on what we were doing. It was only when we noticed her that she would say “hi, do you need any help?” She would do this over and over again every few minutes even though we had only been in the store for a total of 10 or 11 minutes before leaving. We witnessed her do this to another customer as well and she scared him half out of his wits. Afterwhich he just up and left, she then came back to keep checking in on us. This resulted in my fiancé asking if there was a lot of theft, he asked if we had done something, and told her that if there was a problem that we would leave. She stated there was no problem and she apologized for breathing down our necks. Things were thought to be settled until we went to the cash register and the presumed owner/the cashier was very rude. He made a snide comment about how we took a long twenty minutes to look at his large herbs collection (said to us in sarcasm), which 1) is not true because we were not in that section more than 6 minutes and 2) spending time shopping is not a crime. I was looking for ground Barberry and items of similar properties. My fiancée and I ignored his gripe and then gave him our card, however we were under the minimum for card usage and didn’t have cash. So we thanked him for his time and left. I don’t recommend going here if this behavior is to be expected. I believe it’s possible that he was racially profiling us, because we were well kept and nicely dressed and in our mid-twenties, so there doesn’t seem to be any other reason they’d be after us. We’re not sketchy. So please be careful when shopping there.
