DryClean175 / Lost my pants!

1 United States Review updated:

I dropped off 2 pairs of pants on Friday evening. When I went to pick them up on Wed morning, the staff there couldn't find it. He told me to come back later which I did. I went back that evening, but another guy told me that they haven't find my pants yet! He said it was busy in the morning and they couldn't have a chance to look through the rack. I am already disappointed that they were not taking this thing seriously after I left in the morning. Then on Thursday, I called to the drycleaner and tried to speak to the owner. A man answered the phone and claimed that he is the owner. I asked if they found my pants, he said no. I asked what he is going to do about this; he said I have to wait for 2 weeks to see if anyone will return my pants to them. I told him that I needed my pants, and it was not my fault at all. Why I have to wait for 2 weeks to see if anyone return them. Then the owner said it is their policy. I told him that what about no one gonna return at all, then he said he will only pay for up to $19 per piece to me because it is their policy again, and it is print on the back of my receipt. I am so mad and upset when I heard that. My pants worth more than just $19 a piece, and I believe they should pay for the original price of them. It wasn't my problem at all, and why I should feel miserable from the mistake that they made. Why I have to end up losing my 2 pairs of lovely pants and my money. The owner just keep saying it is their policy, but is it also the law that I don't have any right to get either my pants or the original price of the money back. Their customer service is unacceptable, and they are irresponsible to their mistake!

    Same thing happened to me!

    Instead of my pair of pants, I received some other person's dry cleaning. I paid $79 for the pants and over $20 for alterations. I was told the most I would receive after waiting two weeks would be $19.00.

    Don't we have any consumer protection in Virginia. No wonder that Judge filed that lawsuit. I would if I was an attorney.

    You better be glad that it's not your kid that they lost. Look, it's just a garment. Every cleaner is not a perfect cleaner. They are all human and a mistake does happen. Working in a cleaner is hard work. I use to work in one and I know. if this cleaner keeps losing or damage clothes, naturally they will be out of business, but if they do a good job then just give them a break. I'm very sure you and everyone else have lost a pair of sock once or twice in the past when doing your own laundry. Did you give yourself as much a hard time as you do to this cleaner?

    By the way, that Judge lost his job and did not win the lawsuit.

    The other day, I needed to dry clean my tux by noon time for my friends wedding. the manager was sympathized and did a special for me and I was able to make it to the wedding with my new tux on that same day. Now that's customer service. This will be my new cleaners!
