To whom it may concern, My wife and I emailed your company back in May regarding a very poor experience(Case#00019243) we had with an employee that was rude, vulgar and obnoxious during our visit. The “F bomb” laden language was on full display for everyone there, for not only us but other customers as well. He put on quite a performance for everyone. The employees seemed amused by his unprofessional and vile behavior probably because it was either expected by him or tolerated by management. We felt totally disrespected by everyone there at the store. I emailed my complaint to your company hoping that you would be aware of his unprofessional actions and very bad public image it was giving your company. On May 8th I received an email by Kelly Lauder who said a case # had been created and someone would get back to me shortly. I heard nothing. I again reached out to Kelly and got a reply that she was on vacation May 19th-28th. On May 30th, your employee Adam, sent an email thanking me for notifying the company about the incident. He said that the store manager and the district manager were notified of this situation and I was asked to supply my phone number so someone could contact me. No call ever came and if there was ever an attempt, no one ever left a message or return phone number. On July 10th I reached out to Adam asking about the phone call I was expecting. No phone call ever came. On July 25th I emailed Kelly Lauder with hopes that maybe she would let me know what was going on. Her return email said she was again on vacation July 23-29th. It is now August 19th and I still have not gotten a phone call or even an email acknowledgement. After owning my own business and realizing how important customer relations is today, especially with retail businesses getting bludgeoned by Amazon prime and the online shopping options, it would seem that Ocean State Job Lots would prioritize and take customer relations a lot more serious than my experience with your company. I will strongly urge others via word of mouth and social media to avoid companies like Ocean State that think so little of their customers as to not even giving them the courtesy of a simple email or promised phone call to resolve a problem that they created. I will simply take my business elsewhere and tell others to do the same. I don’t need the aggravation. Sincerely disappointed and disgusted, Mike Stetin

Dear Mr. Stetin, I couldn’t agree more. Recently a 20+ year employee took it upon herself to go from full-time to 10 hours per week after she was told by her supervisor that she wasn’t kind to her customers and that she wasn’t a people person. Shame on the Corporate Office for not getting involved in this matter. Ms. Emma McCrary the 20+ year employee was the back bone of the Boston Rd. Springfield Ma store and now it will never be the same. You can bet that I will no longer shop unless she is working. It always amazes me how the Big Guy forgets how they got where they are today. GO AMAZON!!!!!!

My sister and I have been in an Ocean State Job Lot store in our area several times recently in search of an item that we have been unable to find. I have now called your customer service department and the answer that I received about said item was unsatisfactory. This item is available by manufacturing company, but, doesn’t seem to be shipped to my area suddenly for some odd reason. The item that my sister and myself, as well as a couple of workers in the store are looking for is ; BARRICINI dark chocolate covered almonds, that are manufactured by BAZZINI HOLDINGS LLC in Allentown,PA. Please help me and others with this issue. THANK YOU!!!!!
