CatoUnethical behavior

On Saturday, June 19, 2021, I went into Cato in Forrest City, Arkansas because I needed to very quickly purchase a new pair of leggings right before I went to work. I came into the store 15 minutes before closing. I knew exactly where I was going, what I needed, and did not expect to spend more than 5 minutes in the store. My family and I have been to this store plenty of times and have spent plenty of money there. As soon as I walked in, the cashier was standing in the middle of the store lying her head on a clothing rack as if she was exhausted. She then proceeded to loudly complain to another worker about how people love coming in right before closing and how tired she was of it, all while staring at me. I was polite and did not say anything rude back to her. Next, she asked me very rudely if she could help me look for something as if she was rushing me out of the store. When I declined her offer, she then announced loudly that she was moving to the door ready to lock it and go home. This was ten minutes before closing and there were multiple people still shopping in the store. I left the store very upset after this. I was unable to purchase anything I was looking for because all I heard about was how annoying it was that people were still in the store. My entire shopping experience was ruined, and I was late to work because I then had to go to Walmart to find leggings. The customer service at this Cato was terrible, and I felt highly disrespected.

    I bought three tops from your store in Selmer, Tennessee. Two of the tops did not fit me properly and I returned them. The lady who assisted me was training a young lady on how to do a refund from my email receipt. She was asking her if the clothes were from their store and I said yes, they are. I work right behind you. Meaning the Walmart behind her store. She rudely told me to make sure the tags were left on the clothes next time. I did pull one of the tags off one of the tops but I had it in the bag with the tops I was returning and I have been in retail for 23 years. I know they can reattach the tags. I can tell you that I will not shop at that store again. Neither will I recommend it to anyone. That was not good customer service.

      CatoMy card it wasn't approved

      I have been a loyal Cato customer for over 20 years. The last time I visited the store to try make a purchase with my card it wasn't approved. The clerk called the customer service number only to find out my card was cancelled due to not being used within 12 months. I was a loyal customer, and made my payments on time. Cato didn't allow my acct to be reopened because they said they saw a credit card on my credit report that I had a problem with. That should not have had any impact toward my Cato acct, but they didn't reinstate my card.
