Went to a CD Brick and Mortar store today

This was a big deal for me. I arranged for my IL's to watch my kids all day, gassed up the car and drove for 2 hours to get to the store. Then I drove around the town for another 40 minutes just trying to find it. So I get there, and they have the hours clearly posted on the door, which show that they would be open today from 9-5, so I was there during their business hours. But the door was locked and there wasn't anyone in there. I am so disappointed. This was my only chance to go, and they were closed. My dad had promised to pay for whatever I wanted at this store as a special treat, too, and now I don't get any new diapers.

Sigh. I'm going to go get my kids because I miss them terribly. At least they always have a good time at grandma's even though they drink nothing but applejuice and only eat Cheerios.

Ugh that stinks! Hopefully you get another chance to go. I woud call and complain, if the hours were clearly posted, the least they can do is give you a coupon or something for the trouble.

Re: Went to a CD Brick and Mortar store today

That is my pet peeve with stores! There is a cookie shop in my neighborhood that is never open, and the punk rock store too. Don't post hours if you can't keep them! You can put a sign that says by appointment only, or when you catch us, with a phone number. Grrrr!
I worked small business retail for many years, so I know how important it is to be there when people expect you to be there.
Sorry you had such a let down. I would call them and let them know about your hassle.

That is so frustrating!

I'd definitely call and let them know how much they put you out!
