what our customers are saying
Great experience the entire time! Seamstress was sweet
Wow! Great experience following a horrible experience at a different location. I came into the Manchester's location and was greeted and supported by Stephanie. I explained to her I'm officiating a wedding on Saturday, what I needed, and my frustration with the California location where I had located the perfect dress. I explained I had purchased and returned the dress as the location did not follow thru on the needed work to be done on the dress. Stephanie immediately jumped into action, searched all locations across the country, an act by the way, a rep at the California location said could not be done. I informed Stephanie of the one I found in CA, she made a call to California, had the dress shipped overnight so that I could get it in time for the wedding. Thank you Mgr. Stephanie and stylist Kiara. You ROCK and saved the day. Dr. C
Ehhh service. We went to pick up my daughters bridal gown and my dress after alterations. My daughter's dress needs some adjustments including the bustle. The women came over pinned her dress, walked away and never came back. No one checked on us. I had to go to the desk to let them know that someone had to take her dress before we left as we didn't want to leave it in the dressing room. The only person who asked if my dress was okay was the women at the register. They are also very over priced for alterations. My alteration just for a hem cost more than the dress and my daughter's cost half of what her dress cost. UPDATE: While the cost of alterations was mentioned, the poor service was more of a concern that was not acknowledged by you. We went to pick up the dress tonight, and it was not fixed properly. The woman in alterations was not at all friendly, was infact rude and argumentative about fixing the dress. It took a total of 4 times today of the dress going on and off. Thank goodness it was correct the last time since every one of the women who work on alterations left without making sure all was good. Never again will we buy and alter a dress through David's.
