Rude owner is right! Wow, that's one way to alienate your customers, Linda. Some of the sales staff were really nice, which is sad because the owner, Linda, is super rude, her tone being insulting, and if you let your child have their own

Do not shop here! They are rude, pushy and totally out of touch. I bought a $65.00 sweater and used a $69.00 credit that I had to pay for it (a credit because they refused to refund my money after the owner ordered clothes for my son in

I was in there recently to buy a toy for my nephew and beside being "jumped on" the second I walked in by rude and pushy staff members I found certain items with stickers from the store Five Below on the toys! The sticker was for 2 dollars

Seriously.... have you ever noticed that there is rarely more then 2 of 3 people in this store at the same time? The reason they 'hover' and 'follow you around' is because NO ONE SHOPS THERE ANYMORE!!! They are by far the ruddest store

horrible place to shop, employees dont stop following you around. Even if I am working with a nice employee that greets me, an annoying girl comes up cuts the girl helping me off and tries to sell me stuff that i already said I dont want.

My husband and i spent so much money in this store. even for our sons baptism last December. I even take my son to music class there.i am not sure what it is but the old woman has a very nasty tone and expression all the time. it was better when the two middle aged women worked there.now as you enter the store they just keep watching and hovering over me. it make me very uncomfortable. I went in to get a nice present for a toddler on Saturday, but had to leave, because of the behavior of the old woman...she might own the store. i would not recommend this store until they develop a more sensible customer service policy. nice clothing,bad sale team. the older woman should retire,she seem miserable with unnecessary behavior.

I've gone to the Children's Boutique several times, each time hoping it will be a better experience. It has not been.

I've always come in with an aim to buy something ... but the salespeople have never respected my wish to "just browse". When I've explained that I am browsing and I will get them if I need assistance they hover over me making it quite uncomfortable to look around the store. After a minute or two they've intervened and tried to show me everything in the store. Each time I've left empty handed because it has been an uncomfortable experience.

I've learned my lesson and have stopped going to the store.

I have been shopping at the Children's Boutiques for over 4 years and have never had a negative experience. I feel sorry for the 3 poor reviews that have been written, since I personally know many people who love the store, especially the "red head" in the shoe department. My daughter races to the back of the store to get her feet measured and pick out new shoes from the nice "red head." Everyone who I have met at the children's boutique has always treated me with respect. Maybe you should try shopping there again with a better attitude. It is a children's store, and they have been in business selling the best quality of children's clothes and shoes for years!

A friend and I were first time shoppers at The Children's Boutique. Upon entering, we were bulldozed by an over zealous salesperson who was determined to show us everything in the store and proceeded to hover over and follow us to the point of distraction, even after we told her that we wanted to browse. When we made our decision to purchase and brought the item to the checkout counter, there were three women working behind the counter all with an attitude. We were made to feel by the woman who handled our transaction that we did not spend enough money when she showed her annoyance with the comment "Are we gift wrapping this, putting it in a bag OR WHAT?" We will NEVER shop in this store again.

This place has offended me on so many levels and occasions. First of all, the red headed woman in the shoes dept. tried to sell me a pair of shoes for my son that were WIDES. I noticed it since my son has very narrow feet and she acted like I didn't know what I was talking about. She said they fit him and acted really haughty about it even though he was swimming in them. THEN she sold me a pair of shoes for my daughter that was in the wrong box and when I questioned her on the size she said they ran really big. When I looked in the shoe, they were the right size. WHY WOULD SHE LIE LIKE THAT? It was truly strange.
Today, however, was the last straw. I went in with my 4 year old to buy a gift for a birthday party. Right as we picked out a toy, he needed to stop and use the restroom. The employee upstairs said it was broken. The employees downstairs said theirs was broken too and they themselves had to use the restroom at the Mc Donald's next door. YEAH RIGHT! Then I see a woman (who must be a regular) ask if her daughter could use the potty and the redhead from shoes takes her right to this door marked PRIVATE that used to be a door marked RESTROOM. How can you tell a 4 year old who is doing the potty dance that he can't go here, he needs to go next door, get someone to unlock the door etc (BTW< they were very nice at Micky Ds). Also, we were just about to buy this gift and we had to leave the store! Everyone I know hates this store, sometimes we resort to going there because it means you don't have to drive but SERIOUSLY, I am telling everyone I know to boycott this place. There is no reason to continue to patronize an establishment that has consistently rude employees. The merchandise can be found elsewhere without the lies and attitude.

Pros: convenient if you live in center city

Cons: too many to name

Worst shopping experience in recent memory. I bought a pair of sandals for my daughter and then returned them when a strap broke the next day. They took the shoes back and promised to send me a new pair, which never happened. Then they promised to refund me, which also never happened. I dealt with two females there who were consistently rude, even offensive, and consistently untruthful. 2 months later I am still trying to get refunded. I highly recommend staying away, even though it is difficult to find a place to buy childrens' shoes.

I use to shop at this boutique before I dressed in Islamic clothing. Once I started to cover in Islamic attire the staff at this store were so mean and nasty. The clothing they have is fine. However, it is not anything you can not purchase from another place. These people should be more respectful. I know others who've had similar experiences. It is against humanity to treat others so harsh for no reason other than prejudice.

This is not the place to go if you are looking for a value however they have the most amazing kids clothes. It is a great place to go for a special gift - a favorite are the monogramed sweaters. It is on multiple floors arranged by age. They also have great toys and accessories.

This store has several floors of children's clothes and toys, and if you like more boutique-y clothes for kids, then this is a nice shop. The prices are are a bit high, so this is not for the family on a tight budget (try Children's Place down the street or the Gap Outlet on Chestnut for that), but you will find some very nice items unlike others here. Another nice children's boutique is Born Yesterday.
