Not resolved

I just visited the Hobby Lobby on FM529 in W. Houston.

I found on the clearance isle some boxes of wedding flowers. The boxes varied in condition some good, some crushed and some open. The price tags varied from $3.99, $1.99 and $1.27. When I went to the cashier I asked why some were less than the others although they were the same flowers.

The manager was at the register next to me and he said that they are all $3.99 and he was changing the price back to $3.99. I told him he could not do that, due to deceptive practices and he informed me he was the manager and he could do as he pleased. He accused me of changing stickers, I told him to review the cameras because I had less than 5 minutes to pick these up by the time I found them as the store was closing. I feel that he slandered me in front of other customers by calling me a thief, which is not true as cameras can prove otherwise.

I feel that these boxes of flowers were mismarked by their employees and I should not have to suffer the humiliation and the slander he put me through. I told him I would write to you and to the Attorney General and he told me that if I did not shut up he would cancel my transaction and throw me out of the store! The only reason I followed through on the transaction is so I would have proof of their deceptive ways.

They call this a Christian based store, they should hire more Christian like people who should not judge before they have proof. If anyone is the thief it was him, robbing me of my dignity with his slander and humiliation in front of other customers and my children and for changing prices and making them higher than what was marked.

Do you even KNOW what slandering someone is? Get a grip! He basically said you got the price wrong.

Do you know how many people go through department stores and grab an item then decide they don’t want it and they never really put it back where they got it from? Could have been a mistake.

#1384371 you're the inconsiderate customer that wanders in 5 minutes before close to cruise the bargain aisle? I see why he was skeptical.

I am always amused at how non Christians are an expert on how Christians are supposed to behave.

Even if you did not switch stickers you are a thief and scammer if you knew that the price was higher and demanded the lower price, so no sympathy for you. You certainly are not a Christian if you are going to use their mistake to scam them so don't pull this Christian stuff when you were not acting like one yourself.

Sorry, just how were they a thief and scammer?? While not everything adds up about this, it's perfectly reasonable to assume that different items would have different prices placed on them by the store due to being in different conditions.

This person states clearly in their review that some flowers were damaged. If I walked into a store and saw different prices on different items, some more damaged than others, I would assume it was to reflect this damage.

The store should definitely have honoured their prices. This person was NOT taking advantage of them by asking that they do so.

Wow you and the OP have no morals.

to Anonymous #1127775

The person was told they were wrong and kept arguing, so they got what was coming to them. They are like a little kid, cannot take no for an answer without throwing a tantrum.


Hi Heidi,I love seeing what you are pantniig each week on fb, and I want to start coming occastionally. I would like to come November 3rd and bring a friend or two.

I need to check with them to finalize the day, though. Will you go ahead and reserve a spot for me?

Thanks! Lauren Holsomback Pritchett


I've had a similar experience with a Hobby Lobby in Colorado. I feel for you, Nina, but let me tell you something: Being "Christian" means nothing.

People have done horrendous acts under the guise of being "Christian." Christians aren't any different than anyone else and being "religious" doesn't guarantee you're going to be treated fairly.

Don't shop at Hobby Lobby again; that's what I decided to do. It's the best way to get their attention---hit them in their pocketbook.


You know, in reading all of these statements follow MY advice...if they treat you good treat them good, if they treat you like a POS treat them like a bigger one...


why would you even ask if you already knew the answer????


I simply reuse to buy the item.

Looks like you have a few things to learn also.


If you believe that Hobby Lobby is a Non-Christian store, complain to them...not to a *** website! Grow a pair!


While some of these comments are funny, the same type thing happened to me there a while ago. I picked something up from a clearance bin with a clearly written sale and price sign on it, and when I brought it to the register it came up a higher price.

Someone took it back to where I got it from to 'check' and then told me it was not on sale. I went back to look before I left and the person had removed the sign. This IS in fact illegal. I worked in retail for over 10 years and know the advertising laws.

Oh well I guess. :)


Holy overreaction!!! There is a difference between accused and slandered, learn it.


Well, Nina, it looks like everyone knows that you are a liar and so starving for attention that you actually pretend like someone stole your password and posted under your name. Talk about loser behavior.

Seriously, what the *** is wrong with you? Just admit that you are a liar and a cheat and tried to cheat the people at hobby lobby. You are a complete and utter fool with your crazy allegations. I mean, seriously, contacting the attorney general?

You don't even have a case and why the *** would he even care? Get a life!


Deny all the rude posts. Well tell another one Nina they all appeared under your name. You should be careful with your password.


Well, Nina, it looks like I'm not the only one who thinks you're nuts! And it was not me who pretended to post under your name.

And talk about ugly! Geez, girl!

You are the one calling me ugly and by the way you never said how you and all your supporters were doing in your crusade against this terrible, terrible store!

To Lol and the fake Nina Vasquez: thanks for your support. We all know the real Nina Vasquez is muy loco!


Talk about LOSERS!, you have to stoop so low to try and post things under my name. Are you afraid to post under your own name?

Wow this world really is full of crazies! Why don't you all go back and crawl under the rock you came out from! Talk about me, xfiles 33, having too much time on my hands, hmmm, it seems that you must be the devil's advocate on this website, because you sure have too much time on your hands to be posting all over this site. Also, all your post are so ugly and nasty, you must be one very angry and unhappy person at the whole wide world to sit and comment like you do to other peoples legitimate concerns and complaints.

Talk about a REAL LOSER, look in the mirror, BTW, I hope it doesn't crack! :p

Follow the Golden Rule and "if you don't have anything good to say about someone then don't say anything at all",maybe you will become a happier person who can actually smile and be nice for once!
