Run! This place is a nightmare. I took it in 6 months ago to get new front brakes because they were having a half off sale. They told me it would take an hour. It took three hours, and I was late to work. After they gave me the car I quickly drove off to get to work and noticed my car was dragging. I took it back, and it turns out I drove over a mile with the brakes fully depressed. There was brake dust everywhere, but they didn't replace the pads, they just fixed it and gave me a free oil change.

A week ago, my back brakes went out, so I took it back in for them to check out. They told me that both brakes needed new drums and shoes. They also told me I needed new belts for my AC, power steering, and alternator. The estimate they gave me for these services was $650, which included half off of shoes. The manager of the place told me they could have it done that day, and I said no because I had to be to class and I needed to make a few phone calls before I did anything. His response was that he could take me to class. I said no, I don't have the money, I don't want to do anything today. He said that I could call my parents and have them pay over the phone. I said no, I don't want to do anything today. He then asked me when I would bring it back to have it done. I said I didn't know. He asked whether Thursday or Friday would work for me. I then demanded he give me my car back for at least the 5th time before he came around to giving me the key. I couldn't believe I got this kind of response from the manager of the shop. I ended up taking my car to a guy in Topeka and he did all of the above for $158. That's a $492 difference for the exact same service. Do. Not. Go. Here. Ever!

Terrible company. The store does not have security cameras, which is bad news for employees. I was accused of stealing shoes and interrogated by the district manager because the store was missing a couple size 13's and that just happens to be my shoe size. The store manager is racist as well, always instructing me to keep close attention to black customers. If you need cheap shoes, go in during the buy one get one half off sale, but just know that you're purchasing shoes from a company with poor ethics.

The store manager you speak of is no longer there.
