Duck Review

I will never shop here again. When I looked at their livestock, especially their baby ducks and chicks, I was appalled to see so many dead and trampled, rotting under the heat lamps. Also, I read in the paper where an employee was caught throwing almost dead baby animals away in the dumpster. This store should be ashamed, and I will not support such actions.

Rural King - Chicken Supplies Review from Columbia City, Indiana

4.7
Details
You have definitely over inflated the chick issue. The guy doing what he did was wrong but so are you. A large number of people aren't saying they were giving away sick chicks and ducks. There is always a percentage of young poultry that do not make it the first week. I have personally raised thousands over the years and believe me I know. Removing dying chicks something farmers have had the unfortunate task of doing since the beginning of time. It is life. Your attack on the Rural King Company is unprofessional and it will be a waste of your time I have no doubt. I'm not saying I agree with all they do but it is nice to have a good farm store in the area. Get a life and get over it. You obviously don't have enough to do.

Rural King - Overall Impression Review from Clarksville, Tennessee

1.2
Details
Was there yesterday March 22,2015 clarksville rural king, havent been in a while but they disgust me, dogs walking around on leashes and owners letting them *** on every corner, and the chicken area made me sick. How do they have a chick permit to sell when its that nasty, over crowded and sick looking and the smell! The people dont know anything about what is sold in that store,much less how to take care of livestock. I will not be back and they should have them penned up in a area where people keep their hands off until they have purchased them. That is what makes them sick and gets them injured. They arent shipped that way. For sure. Shut down the chicks being sold or make a better place to keep public out and from handling them. Its not sanitary and not good for the chicks either. If other stores have the process in check rural king should be no exception. Get with the program people.

Rural King - Review in Shopping category from New York, New York

Rural King, you have been exposed for your policy of throwing live baby chicks in dumpster!!! This will go viral as it should!!! You have no right to just kill these animals. You'll never get another dime from me!! I'll take this as far as I can.

I have a friend that works at Rural King in Indiana and admitted to me that they were instructed by management to throw live baby chickens in the dumpster if they were not healthy enough!

Rural King - Working Conditions Review from Greenville, Kentucky

Muhlenberg county store is filthy. Covered in mold. my son has had breathing problems for sometime now. since he started working there. He recently quit and got another job, and wouldn't you know he hasn't used his inhaler once! Heard the managers were not good people and that half the employees wear on drugs. I know they do a drug test but apparently they send apot head to the bathroom with you so you can have someone *** for you. Needs to be closed. Its getting the same rep as trailer trash.

Rural King - Customer Service

 I brought my husband in the Rural King on Hwy 27 in Leesburg, FL for the first time to show him around your store and introduce him to all the great products we routingly purchase from this store. However, while checking out and purchasing our products we noticed a woman with a small child and the cashier bantering the small one, basicly being dissrepctful and rude to the family. Once it was our turn to check out, the cashier then targeted us, and made the following comment to my husband, referring to the dog nail clippers on in our basket. "oh, nice trimmers, you planning on getting a mani and a petty?" at first I thought to myself, I know she is not insulting my husband right infront of me, maybe she is just a bit socially awkward, or is just trying to be funny. So, we reluctantly purchased the item and upon leaving her register, received the following comment " enjoy your spa day." My Husband and I were not happy at the experience we recieved while shopping at this Rural King. Very disrespectful, and uncalled for. Why would I ever pick up animal or pet products there ever again,knowing that this is what you are expected to deal with with at Rural King. I could go down the street to Petsmart where my husband and I will be treated with the respect and dignity a consumer deserves.

I had visited Rural King recently and found that I had really liked it and had an enjoyable time as we had shopped a couple hours and had bought several things that we had not had to take back but even if we had I am sure it would not had been a problem anyway and even if it had I would still shop there because I had enjoyed myself so much and had told my family about how cool that store had been in Greenwood and I expect other shoppers had felt that same way:)

Rural King - Bench Vise Review from Germantown, Tennessee

I purchased an expensive bench mount vise from these dopes. The first time I used it to separate a plumbing joint on a 2 inch pipe the piece of junk broke off at the base and *** near killed me when it hit the ground next to my head because I landed on the floor. I was told that they do not fix or replace this item. Kudos Rural King, what is your competitor because that's where my money is going as should everyone else's.

Rural King - Manager Review from Germantown, Tennessee

I purchased a chainsaw from these tools at the Vandalia, IL store. It ran for an hour before seizing up. Their store manager (John Becks) idea of fixing was to send me to their shop where a kid that was clueless on how an internal combustion engine worksn put a wbig wrench on the crank nut and turned it. He then started it and I got told it was fine. It never ran again. I tried for six months to get them to replace it but they refused.

For one thing you should have done the errand yourself. Let this be a lesson to you that you should look at the box, not just the contents.

You did have a potty mouth, no doubt about it. I don't see anything wrong with the fact that he told your daughter that, she has probably heard that kind of language, similar or worse from you. When did an employee tell you that you could bring back clearance items, I didn't see it anyplace in your complaint.

I hope you get a lot of weird phone calls being you put your number on a public complaint site. This isn't the site for Rural King, you are on a general complaint site.

Rural King - Cretins, yahoos and dolts...oh my!

1.0
Details
Most of the employees at the 2468 Commercial Way, Spring Hill, FL 34606 location have that blank look in their eyes of slack-jawed, mouth breathing inbred dullards. Seriously, don't waste your time by asking them anything to do with the products, their availability or correct pricing; they will just look at you like you're speaking in Greek after inhaling helium. Just make sure you know exactly what you want, that it's in stock, where it's located and what is supposed to cost and you will have a chance of getting in & out of there with what you came for in a reasonable amount of time. But to be fair, this is typical for Floriduh.

Your problem might be that you don't sound like a very nice person. Who do you think you are to criticize the employees the way you described them?

Maybe your nasty attitude is the reason you get treated the way you claim. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
