  • No, I would not go back!

Spent $90 today and thought it didn't seem right so went through my receipt when I got home and realized they double charged me for the most expensive item I bought and cleverly tagged it as two separate categories -- hat and accessory. Spoke with Robert, one of the owners and after condescending "honey" remarks it was obvious that he wasn't going to own up to the fraud and dishonesty that reigns at the store e.g. went down the block to Spirit Halloween after for shockingly half price and nice attitiude. He told me I could come back in -- which is not near where I live -- why so he can tell me I took something out of the bag. STAY AWAY THIS PLACE HAS SCARY THIEVES!!

I felt like a kid in a candy store! You have to devote at least two hours here to take it all in! They have every single costume imaginable and the special effects and props are life like! You have to see this place to believe it. It's more than just a store... it's an amusement park!

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.
