86th street photo - Customer ServiceAfter searching on-line for a good price for a Canon PowerShot sd1100, I found the 86th Street Photo Web Site. I wanted to talk with a "real" person and was put through to some one in the "Digital Photo" Department. I didn't catch his name, as he mumbled, but when I tried to ask him a series of questions, out of the blue he became beligerent, extremely rude, talked "over" me and basically hung up on me. I called back and asked to talk to a manager in "customer service". After being on hold forever, I again was put through to "a manager". After I complained about being treated so rudely, he then informed me that "that Camera is not available" "It's out of stock, so we won't take any orders for it". Then he also promptly hung up on me. After that experience, 86th Street Photo would NOT have gotten ANY business from me no matter what the price was for the item I was looking for. If this business is indeed on 86th Street in New York, they can stuff their "East Coast" attitudes. I'll be buying from e-bay or Amazon.com. Seems as though I'm not the only person who has dealt with the ignorance of the folks who "work" for 86th Street photo. If they are indeed misleading people and basically committing fraud, I hope they all "go down" for it. With their attitudes, to me "what goes around, comes around". Thanks for listening.
