Talbots

★★☆☆☆
The red door with brass knocker is a perennially preppy retail icon.

I often like going to Talbot's, but one time turned me off from at least this branch, if not the whole chain. I went in to exchange sizes with my son. He was touching the necklaces, and I was watching him, but the line was taking forever and apparently he touched a necklace that was literally made out of thread. When I went to the counter the employee told me that he had broken the necklace. (It seems to me they could have better quality jewelry, or keep the breakable stuff out of reach.) I told her I would pay for it, but she was very snotty and said "It's okay, we can "donate" it, but it's not fair." or something like that. In retrospect I should have insisted on paying for the $50 thread-based necklace so I didn't have to listen to her attitude, but I didn't. Apparently a huge chain can't control their breakable items and then has an attitude about when something happens. I won't ever go back to this location at the very least.
