I have been a gabriel brother employee for nearly 8 years.Its a great place to shop,a great place to save money.But as a customer you have to be a patient shopper because things will not always be in the right place were you like it.But you have to understand that we work really hard in these stores and get pulled in many directions.Half the time we as the department heads are not even happy with the way the departments look,but we do the best that we can.So try as a shopper to understand its tough being a gabes employee its just like you were riding a roller coaster.Will do are best to help you in any way you can.For the most part the customers are great you have some don't get me wrong that you can't please but that is any retail store..So come and check us out and tell all your friends about us..But now if i were to speak as an employee its a very rough job and it seems to just be getting rougher.I know we all have a lot to do and if we all had the support that we needed maybe it would be different.There is way to many double steps and the communication is terrible.A lot of us employee's know what we have to do ,but knowing it and being able to do it is not the same thing.It takes a lot to work for this company.Its hard work and dedication but i don't think enough people notice how hard we truly work.

In response to the Hottopic question, Gabe's is NOT a thrift store and they have many, many name brand clothes. It changes all the time, so you might find clothes and shoes in the style you are looking for. I have bought lots of stuff there, and I consider it my favorite store! The prices are great, and the bargains are worth hunting for--

Okay so I've never actually been to the store but was wondering this, it was rumored that they sell clothes from hottopic and skater shoes and lots of skinny jeans and stuff you can did in hottopic and pacsun is this true??? And what are the average pricing on things? Oh and is it like a thrift store like a used clothing store? or what?

Gabriel's is a good store. If I need to find something unusual, that is the place to go... funky, hippie or just cool. Also, a good stock of common fashions. I bought a brand name hoodie there a few years ago.

Recently, bought some quality hand crafted jewelery.

Store personnel are just fine and always busy.

I used to live close to a Gabriel Brothers store. I loved it. It saved me a lot of money because I have 4 daughters and I couldn't afford the higher price stores. I've bought clothes at other name brand stores just to find them defective. In this economy I pray that Gabriel Brothers would open a store in our Western Kentucky/Western Tennessee or Southern Indiana area. They would not regret it. We have 100's of people driving to Lexington KY several times a year to save money. You wouldn't hear any complaints from us.

As an employee who has worked for the Gabriel Brothers brand for a considerable time (considerable for the above average turnover rate) I can say I've seen the good and bad at my own store. I will say that the store has some amazing deals.
As for customer service, a lot of the time people expect every employee to know the store inside and out even tho we average 15-20 hours a week usually in one department.
That being said I believe if a customer has a problem, I have a problem. I have seen employees without any respect for the customer who ultimately pays their check. They usually don't stick around too long (then again good employees don't really stick around too long either). The ability to be promoted is low, the incentives offered to it's employees aren't too appealing, recognition is nil and the starting pay for the person you see on the sales floor is low so the good guys tend to disappear after a while.
As for the item quality one has to consider the source. Most of the items we get are second run, damaged, irregular, or just didn't sell somewhere else. Odds are that it's not poor quality because of the associate, it was like that when it came in and they all get priced the same. We aren't stupid, if it was up to us we would further discount the item for you but managers cant or wont do that for you now either so odds are it'll get sold once it gets marked down enough or thrown away. (personally I'd like to see it donated to shelters or charities but hey that probably costs money)

I'd like to see changes made... Customers satisfied, happy employees and company profits increased, but I don't see the first two being as important to those at the corporate level. Much work would have to be done regarding the matrices (?matrixes?) that govern productivity, (it's no fun being told to get X done in Y time because some bozo you'll never meet pulled something out of their ass or just didn't take the time to account for variables may and do arise OFTEN (and then threaten your job because you had to take time away to say... help a customer)) or control payroll. I think that higher sales could easily be attained by smartly utilising different marketing techniques, loosen the belt on advertising funds! If I hadn't seen a newspaper clipping in the managers office I never would have known we advertised... at all! (this may just be my market, I'm a peon and they may advertise extensively in other markets)

I forgot if I had a point, but one that sticks in my head is that you get what you pay for, be you corporate, consumer, or peon...

You can buy goods cheaply since they pay poorly and overwork their staff. Ask one next time you shop there. I'd pay an extra buck someplace else to help these people

Gabriel brother is the only store you can go to and get a name brand out fit for 10 bucks, I got a lerners sleeveless top and a lerners skirt for just 5 bucks a peice. If it means I have to search around for what I want, and save more than 70% off, I'm there. Gooooooooo Gabriel Brothers.

I have no problem being able to afford any necessity in life. I do not have the HUGE ego where I have to spend obscene money to get quality. I have yet to have any of my friends say that any of my clothes looked cheap or tacky. As matter of fact I get asked where I get my items and that they will start shopping there and save bundles. So to all you haughty elitists go to the high end stores at the malls spend your money and I will reap the dividends with my stock in those overpriced stores. Go shop and shop often massage your overblown egos.

If you think Gabes sucks so bad, don't go there. Spend three times as much money somewhere else for the same stuff and get on with your life. I think there are bad associates at every store in every company and just because you think you came in contact with an employee who wasn't up to your standards don't judge the whole store and company by that one person. Most Gabes employees are eager to help in any way they can. And no they don't call other stores to check for items because that is the nature of the store. It is not your typical retail store where every store gets the same merchandise. Each store may have something different and it is very time consuming for them to hunt for that one little thing you might be looking for. So be patient with the employees because its not their policy and therefore yelling and complaining to them doesn't do any good at all. And by the way, they might have time to assist you more if they weren't cleaning up all the crap you dropped on the floor (clothes, hangers, chicken nuggets you were feeding your brats)!

I would like say that GABES is the bomb, i got turned on when i was in college at Akron U, being a college student and all you work on a tight budget. We would find the deals like Gabes and Fashion Freenzy (which sold express clothes) really cheap and then to turned a Dillards into a outlet there. But recently i can't not go to gabes weekly, sales changes and things steady come in. You can buy designer clothes for way cheaper than any other store. If you willing to put the time to look then you will find plenty of bargins. They favorite line is "You gotta to love it" and i really do!

I love Gabes. If there is a problem with how the products on the shelves are maintained, it is likely due to the inconsiderate and uneducated people (note the negative reviews below) who are disrespectful of the merchandise. The selection is very good and the prices cannot be beat. I have never had a problem with customer service since I am a respectful and patient customer. Who wants to be kind to a customer who is verbally abusive? I certainly wouldn't. I highly recommend this store to anyone willing to save a lot of money, and spend a little more than average time in line. The sales are amazing!

I live in NYC, and drive to Ohio two times a year to save hundreds of dollars on clothing for my family. Every time I come back to NYC, I get so many compliments on the bargains to be had. You all should consider yourselves lucky to be able to shop at these deeply discounted prices!!! If you want great customer service, go to the stores that will charge you for it!!!

This place is a real winner. They have torn up dirty merchandise and the staff have no costomer service skills. If you find something you like and want to know if another Gabe's has one to match dont bother asking for a phone number. They dont have phone numbers for the individual stores. Even the stores cant call one another.
