Challenger Store / Lying Sales People & managers who protect them!
Had an extremely bad expereince at Challenger Store in Singapore. I had gone there for the first time, looking for some small consumer electronics. At digital camera section, a pushy sales guy was trying to sell us a particular camera. We weren't too sure - so he said he'll give us one orignal battery worth $80 free if we buy now. That seemed like a good deal - so we said yes.
So when he started getting the stuff out - there was no battery. I asked for it again. He was like i need to check if i can give that to you. Then we went and said yes - and gave me a cheap 'compatible' battery worth $20. When i questioned him that this was not the deal we agreed to - he went away and started a sales pitch to another customer. And his manager took over. The manager tried to convince me that this was the deal sold and we should not disturn the orignal sales guy from his customers to confirm with him.
After 15 mins of discussion - I was extremely disgusted with the whole lying to close the sale and cover-up. If you cant afford to give a deal - why offer in first place. Just leaves a BAD taste with your customers. Not only the sales-person a liar, the manager was obviously aware and supportive. Never again will i shop in the store or recommend anyone goes to this cheating, lying store.
