Re: “Bottles

This is a mini total wine (some staff included).

Wine selection is fairly limited, Beer is probably a quarter of what CBX jams into their store, and about equal toi the better piggly wigglys. Lot of losers mixed in to the beer section; in about a year people will be cautioning you to watch dates on the beer. Liquor selection is good, but poorly organized.

I also hate placing the same item throughout the store, very annoying.

Staff is not at all educated in the products (this goes up to management)

Re: “The Olive Oil Shop

If you're into processed, flavored oils, then this is your place. If you're looking for cold pressed, unfiltered traditional oils, then you'll be disappointed. But I guess like most of the stores on King Street, they cater to the tourists. I've been able to find traditional oils (filtered) just as good in local grocery stores (not Whole Foods or Earth Fare). Oils are like wine, its really a personal preference.

Re: “Lowcountry Wine and Spirits

Absolute miserable and rudest owners and employees ever. I was asked to leave the store for being on my cell phone. Didn't even have time for the phone to ring once before the rude employee told me to get off my phone and pointed at a sign saying "no cell phones". Is this even legal? Miserable creatures operate this store. Avoid at all costs. High prices too.

Re: “Legare Farms

Total Garbage. Do not get a CSA from them. They claim they grow their own produce, but alas, all they grow is more and more paranoid and resentful. When asked where the produce came from they claimed it was from their farm. I went on a tour of the farm and there is nothing growing there. At all.

Re: “Christophe Artisan Chocolatier-Pâtissier

I should have posted this comment a long time ago. As I drove by Christophe Artisan Chocolatier today, and was reminded of the terrible experience I had with the people who own this business, and I needed to vent about it.
In 2011, I purchased a Groupon coupon for $40.00 assortment of Christophe's chocolates. The deal was run just before Valentine's Day, so I decided to use my coupon on chocolates for my boyfriend, who is a chocoholic. When I called in a week before the holiday, I was told that the chocolatier was swamped with Valentine's Day orders, and they wouldn't be able to fill my order at that time. I understood how busy they were, and decided to redeem my coupon at a later date.
I called them several times, and each time I was given the runaround. I was told to call another number, but no one answered the phone at that phone number. At one point someone took my phone number and promised to call me back. No one called me back, and after numerous unsuccessful attempts to redeem my coupon, I gave up. So I was out $20.00.
If business owners offer Groupon deals and take our money, they should be responsible enough to make good on the deal we bought.

Re: “Bottles

I'm confused by the hoopla about "Bottles", but more so that they felt compelled to have not 1, but 2 Grand Openings in the last 5 weeks! Why is that? I have to admit I so looked forward to a store like this coming to East of the Cooper for quite sometime like a lot of people. So, when I recently read in late November that they were having another Grand Opening Celebration I decided to take a few of my attorneys during our lunch break. I have to be honest...much to all of our dismay we were extremely disappointed with the wine and beer inventory as well as the selections we saw. The wine and beer sections are smaller than what I would've expected from the marketing/advertising I saw, but the liquor store was beyond too large. I guess the old saying is spot on in our opinion of Bottles, "don't always believe what you hear or read"!

Positives: Pricing is fair, but not great; staff is friendly!

Negatives: Wine and Beer inventory and selections; Walk-in Cigar Humidor was non-existent with tiny inventory and selections; No place to sit down if you wanted too; Bad location and extremely difficult to get in and out of Moultrie Plaza!

Re: “Factor 5

Went to the one on Rivers for the 2nd time, the same guy was working and completely rude. He said I needed to wait 3 wks before changing my nose piercing, wouldn't even look at it the first time, so I went back 3 weeks later. The guy immediately screamed "no kids allowed" when I walked in with my 2 year old. Since I am a single mom, I guess I am suppose to hire a babysitter for 10 minutes while I have my nose stud changed out. They were having roofing problems, so he couldn't do any piercings and when I went to point at my nose he screamed, "do not touch your jewelry. See the sign" Completely disgusted - went up the road to Exotic Impressions and they were awesome. Took care of my nose, extremely helpful, and very friendly to my son.

Re: “Bull Street Gourmet

Bull Street Gourmet, eh? More like Bull Sh%* Gourmet. Sad to say this place has really declined in credibility. Recently ordered a bagel sandwich and was given a BLACK bagel. Completely burnt. The staff is so rude, also clearly they do not pay attention to what they are serving.
In addition, they advertise that they use H&H Bagels. H&H Bagels are New York bagels. When I ordered a bagel, I watched the clerk grab my bagel from a Kirkland / CostCo bag.
Not only do they serve you burnt food, but they lie about where the food comes from.
Get it together, B.S.G. Bring back what used to be good.

Re: “Soundwave Records & Comics

By far the worst comic store I've ever been in. Service is terrible and the owner is a crook.

Re: “PetSmart

Really? No one even said hello or offered to assist me when I went in. I quickly decided I'd rather support a local full line store than this soul-less corporate monstrosity.

Re: “Broadway Performing Arts Studios

Beware of this dance studio. Check their policy about withdrawing. You are committed to pay for the complete semester even if you are not satisfied or find the schedule is not working out for your family. My daughter has danced for 5 years and in the 10 weeks she attended, she did not come close to practising at the level she was at. It is more like play time than a real dance class. Take caution before enrolling at this dance studio!

Re: “H&L Asian Market

I got mugged outside of the store. it's in a terrible part of town-- right nextdoor to the community thrift stores where homeless people hang around all day. i was disappointed in the selection at h&l but was impressed with the fact that it was so clean for an asian market. i don't know about you but the cleanliness was not enough to get me back to the store though because what i care about is 1) safety and 2) variety. both of which were lacking for h&l

Re: “MoonPie General Store

Nice to duck into for air conditioning, but now that anyone can buy Moonpies ANYWHERE in the world, I am not sure why I want to spend a ton of money to buy them on a vacation in Charleston SC - so that then I have to ship them back home... or put them in the car for the drive back home...

And, sitting in there to eat and drink expensive food that is bad for me is not exactly a good investment of my time on vacation in Charleston...

Still, the store itself is nice... just not sure WHY I'd ever want to go again -- or why I went in the first place.

That is right there are several, and they all suck.

Re: “Burris Liquor Store

I am looking for a Clyde Burris who lived in West Memphis, AR 50 or so years ago. He had a brother named Rodney, a beautiful sister (who's name escapes me) and a mentally disabled sister named Peggy. Just wondering if you are the Clyde Burris who was my neighbor on S. Worthington Dr. Elaine Wever Wolff (elainew84@hotmail.com)
