Dominion on Blackmarsh has once again gotten my goat. All I wanted was a barbecue, and with their $50 gift certificate for meat when you purchase a $300 or more barbecue, I thought there was no way to lose. Well, Dominion managed to prove me wrong on that.
For starters, why would they advertise a promotion that is available on $300 barbecues when they don't have any in stock for less than $400? Argh.
Anyhow, the main thing that annoyed me was the fact that none of the barbecues had pricetags. Instead, there was a poorly photocopied flyer taped to each set, with no indication of which item was which, aside from comparing each item to the tiny, grainy black and white picture. I checked all the surrounding aisles for an employee who might help me with my selection, but there were none to be found. I even tried the customer service desk, which seems to be closed outside of 'regular' business hours (meaning Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm as far as I could tell, in spite of the fact that the store itself is open far beyond those hours). I ended up going to (gasp) Canadian Tire where I found a (price ticketed) barbecue and was on my way to the car with it in 10 minutes flat.
I just have to say, and I'm sure most readers will agree: you know it's bad when Canadian Tire has better service than you.
