This candy store store owner thinks customer service is old fashioned. Insult the client, that's the way forward!
These reviews are being passed around amongst the locals here, I thought you'd get a giggle or two.
Way too expensive for a candy shop ($10.99 per pound of candy). I got a little bit of everything and I ended up paying $6 dollars for something I could have bought for $3. The candy wasn't even that great...the gummy bears were too soft, the sour gummies weren't sour enough.
But I give them props for having a huge variety of everything....it has candy from the olden days, but they're all HELLA overpriced. :/
Crazy batshit candystore owner response:
California Dreamin. Too much Kool Aid or marijuana. Obviously your judgment was impaired or your education lacking. 1lb is equal to 16 ounces. Go to CVS and purchase M&Ms for $1.25 for 1.9 ounces is 10.52 per/lb and that is when it is on sale. CVS sells other products they rape you on. Emily's sells candy. You get raped on other things as well. Really, sit down and do the math. Some stuff Emily's is way cheaper.
People used to compare Emily's to EC candy - which sells their chocolates at 16.99 per/lb.
In addition, Emily's has no minimum on credit cards. So, when you purchase $6.00 worth of candy on a credit card - Emily suffers a loss. That is why most businesses have a $ 10.00 minimum.
Here is some advice, go back to California and continue to smoke what ever it is you smoke. And, if you don't smoke - maybe go back to school.
10.99 per/lb is cheap by NYC standards. Dylans charges 12.99 per/lb for non-chocolate, M&M's charges 11.95 per/lb and they are a manufacturer. So, Emily's sells M&Ms cheaper than the M&M store and Dylans.
That is right you failed to mention that. Emily's is cheaper than ITS SUGAR. Interesting that ITS Sugar went out of business at Queens Center Mall and Dylans went out of business at Roosevelt Field Mall. Really, you have no concept about the cost of candy. You can buy cheaper at costco but it is NOT the same product and they have far greater purchasing power. Really, Emily's sincerely hopes you open up your own store and deal with all the costs associated with it. Charge 5.00 per pound and see how long you are in business. Maybe a week.
Read the rest, she insults anyone who has anything negative to say about her store.
