I was able to find help easily. And I went to the location on 5th ave. They were pleasant. Luckily I didn't feel watched. Wasn't greeted at the door though. And had to wait to be served. But once I was she was nice. I would go back....when I get a job....lol. Their products are online only products without the S&H. But still a little out of my budget. But then again most of the products I bought are expensive.

They Make You Feel Like A Thief Here

Walk into a Ricky's and watch the employees watch you. They make you feel like you are a potential thief. And, the employees are really not very pleasant. In one location they wanted to see my driver's license before they let me purchase on a credit card. I guess the ACLU would appreciate the store's non-discrimination policy, but as a middle-aged woman accustomed to much larger purchases without proving identification, I did not like it. Ricky's hase some great hard to find things, but it doesn't compensate for the horrible low-class environment of the stores (and I've been to several).

Ricky's has the most amazing costume selection. This past Halloween it was especially fun and creative. Better than past selections. Two thumbs up!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
