So your underage son tries to buy something that you need to be 21+ to buy, and when they don't let him, someone else tires to buy it for him? What do you think walmart would do if it were alcohol?

or tobacco? Common sense people......

Great values, great people! We drive over 45 minutes just to shop at a Rural King. They need a store in/closer to Toledo,Ohio to fill the void since The Andersons left the market. Just sayin'!

You ask any random question, they have the answers. You want to make a purchase, and it is out of stock, leave your number and they will contact you when it is available. Very family orientated, polite and straight forward. I have made quite a few acquainted, and or even friends throughout my visits. Leesburg Fl. Rural King, is always a great experience!

Granted common sense is to save all receipts, especially for gifts... However, stores can also tell you where the money from any gift card was spent or if the card was ever activated. I'm sorry this happened to you.

Rural King - Rude customer service

4.6
Details
Was at the newly opened Front Royal, VA store and redneck Walmart it is. The customer service manager was barking at a fellow worker, while he was pretty much doing nothing. I actually brought it to his attention that he needed to learn how to talk to his cashiers nicer and he proceeded to tell me I was wrong. I am not sure what he said exactly, because he mumbled due to the snuff or chewing tobacco in his mouth. Which is in line with the redneck of the store. Lucky for me the other person behind the desk was a pleasant young lady and I didn't have to deal with him other than trying to help good o'boy out by some friendly advise.

I worked at Rural King for 6 weeks as assistant manager, I quit for s better job which did not work out, the store had not replaced me and still hasn't, but yet the won't hire me back because I only gave a weeks notice. Multiple calls to the district manager have not been returned. Text have not been responded to! Way to go. I just don't know about Rural King. They don't care about their Employees

You quit a job after 6 weeks giving an improper notice for a better job that you apparently didn't have yet, and then fell through, and are ticked off because they won't hire you back? Really?

You had your chance and you quit!

And if you were looking for another job within 6 weeks, they were probably sorry they hired you to begin with.

It sounds like they care enough about their employees to protect them from having you as a manager. Please post your name so any managers or business owners out here are sure not to hire you the first time.

I don't understand why these same 2 managers are there. Every time I go in the terre haute store they are there and all they do is talk *** towards customers and the employees. I don't see how some of the employees have put up with it as long as they have.

I love my rural king as well. Sad to announce wonderful pet friendly policy has been shut down in my town thanks to dpt of health.

Boneheads. Wish RK would reconsider sale of human food. Going to be some sad customers who love to bring their pets.

Very sad for me and my dog. Wonderful staff at my store by the way.

Rural King - Allowing dogs...

5.0
Details
This is the only problem I have with your stores....allowing dogs to be in the store where there is food,people have allergies to certain animals,and dog hair and what happens when someone gets bitten or attacked??? I was recently at the Vincennes Indiana store,and a couple of young boys had a "huge" Pitbull in the store.Who is responsible for injury if a dog should snap...not only the owners,but the store for allowing these animals to be there...I do love dogs and cats,I have nothing against them,I hate Pits and think they are too dangerous to be around strangers...you never know their mood. I am disappointed that it is even ok with insurance companies to allow your stores to do this! There should be a very fine line to where animals should be allowed to go....I don't think a business where there are a lot of people inside the store should be one of them...

I have ptsd, if I have a episode while I'm in public, my service dog will become protective and will bare his teeth at anyone near me. Should I not be allowed to go in public with him?

I have served my country so you can *** about *** stuff, should I and my dog be ban from stores because people are ***? I think not. It's unfair to judge anything that you have no clue what you are talking about. There are a lot of people that have allergies to perfumes and cologne but no one says to ban them.

Grow up and get a clue. The whole world doesn't revolve around you and what you think!!!

Your ignorance is astounding. Just because you don't like a breed doesn't mean that you're right.

Dogs are a product of their environment and training like another comment, just go to another store. Why do the other customers be subject to you wanting to impose your beliefs? Especially when you're obviously prejudice about certain breeds. I have owned several breeds of dogs.

The pitbull I own is a very affectionate and protective dog.

Also the blue nose that my son owns is exactly the same way. I hope one day you don't get judged just by being a certain color

It's amazing how judgemental people are. Have you ever raised a pitbull?

Like any dog, the dog is a product of their training. Seems that you want a store to go by your belief that dogs (especially ones that you don't like) not be allowed in the store.

When like another comment said. Go to another store you closed minded uninformed ***.

I would just suggest going to another store that doesnt allow dogs in their store. Seems simple enough.

You are right about the dog and I'm surprised they allowed that, that is a liability lawsuit waiting to happen bad business procurement and proactivity. The other thing is there is such a thing called the ADA or Americans with disabilities act which requires them to comply to certain standards for handicapped persons such parking ramps and accessibility.

In regards to this I could see them alouing seeing eye dogs or dogs for people who need them to get around and function due to their disability. Other than that if you don't fit the criteria it goes the same for the sign slogan no shirt no shoes no service. They would let anyone enter the store that way so why would you let a bunch of kids with no disabilities in a store with a pit bull it makes no sense. It's not a Pet Smart.

Most of the reviews I'm reading about this company are really ***, unhappy employees, pissed off customers, bad management, bad business practices and just plan stupidity with common business sense towards customers. They only thing they have going for them are cheaper prices on most products and name brand products that you can find in other retail stores. They're like any other business practice in this century get in make your money when profit margins decline to where it's more profitable to close certain stores that it is to keep them open, they will sell out to another company or merge due to bad business practices, corporate greed and or poor foresight for future planning. They sound like they are being run by people with poor common sense and mediocre business education, cronyism.

I live a lot of their prices but I don't foresee them being a huge long term competitor if they don't look into changing some of their practices towards handling business and customer service.

Maybe you should learn how to spell and the use of grammar before you try to tell a successful business how to run it's business. Did you even proofread your comment?

Plain is spelled plain not plan. Also please enlightened us as to how you 'live their prices'.

I asked our Rural King manager about why the popcorn is soooo greasy now. My cats & I loved the stuff. A few ago, I bought our usual big bag of popcorn. I noticed the cats walked away. I heated some for me & thought yuck! Please go back to old way of popping your corn....

This is a corporate thing. They want all popcorn made with 2-3 pumps of canola oil, instead of 1 like it should be. Apparently they think the popcorn being all yellow is more aesthetically pleasing, but they don't eat it, so they don't know it tastes horrible.
