My favorite Linens'n Things store is closing. I knew about Linens'n Things filing chapter 11, but this hit me personally. I shop here all the time. They have quality products. They have fun household items... and they take expired coupons - I collect their coupons, even the expired ones, so I always get 20% off from Linens'n Things.
They said the entire store was on sale. But I don't get excited over this kind of sales gimmicks. I had to investigate more. So, I went inside...
Linens'n Things is well known for their 20% off coupons. They even take expired coupons. Bad Bath and Beyond also takes Linens'n Things coupons, even the expired ones. So, I have a collection of 20-30 Linens'n Things coupons all the time.
I looked inside the store. As I imagined, most of the items were only 10% off from their normal price. 10% didn't do much for me. But I still have my 20% off coupons.
I spent about thirty minutes looking for a few kitchen items. I got my coupons out and went to the cashier. I was ready to make another record breaking bargain.
However, when I got to the counter, the cashier said "You cannot use coupons anymore". That's right, you cannot use coupons. So, instead of getting 30% off like I anticipated, I was only going to get 10% off. I was extremely angry and felt insulted. I just wasted 30 minutes of my life I will never get back. I can go to Bad Bath & Beyond and get a better price with a better selection (since their stores are not closing).
"Wow~! that makes everything REALLY expensive". I said loud so other people can hear.
I put down my items on the counter and walked away. The cashier didn't appreciate my attitude. But who cares.
The store is closing.... instead of my usual 20% off, they are now giving me only 10% off. That's an insult. Of course, there were some items with 30% off. But those are the items people don't want.
