Worst alteration service ever. I had a suit jacket which needed the sleeves to be taken up an inch. The sleeves had a line in inch from the bottom which I requested that they cut off. When I went to pickup the suit jacket not only did they charge me double but they hadn't cut the sleeves which was evident as the line was still there an inch from the bottom. When I requested a refund an older grumpy woman came out hollering refusing to provide me one. She explained that she had done me a favour and instead of cutting the sleeves from the bottom of the sleeves she had decided to take it up from the shoulder seams (without ever asking me). She had in fact done this leaving me with a suit jacket that was too tight around the shoulders, sleeves that were different lengths and me out of pocket by double the amount she quoted. Also she was hollering and screaming at me furious that I had even requested a refund. I wouldn't have minded so much if she had a mint first, but the whole experience was pretty rank. For full disclosure though there was a receptionist who was absolutely lovely and was as helpful as she could be with the grumpy dragon breathing over her.
