Rural King - Manager Review from Etowah, Tennessee

My experience is with the marion ohio store and it has a *** poor store manager. One asst manager talks to employees like they are dirt. Half the kid employees do nothingbut stand around or follow other employees around. There is nothing done about call offs or people not doing their job. Poor customer service all the time. I dont see this store lasting two more years. Not with the store manager as blind as he is. Never encountered such disgust in the way the store is ran. Something needs to be done or their business will decrease. Just ask some of the employees how the store is ran. I have.

Rural King Manager

Clarksville, TN. Rural King Store Parking lot buisnesses

This store allows people to run businesses without a license week after week. One woman and a friend take up to 10 parking spots with trailers, trucks, tables. She buys stuff at a Mennonite auction comes down and resells it. She blocks the already congested parking lot. There are usually 4 different people set up in the lot on any given weekend sometimes as many as 10. Some people actually sell stuff that is sold in the store in direct competition. Solution is move them away from the center of the crowed lot to a marked area along the edge of the lot, in a farmers market type set up. But not allow people to sell stuff they did not produce and are actually running a business on your location. I constantly have to park way out in the lot and push 15 bags of grain up the lot to the closest spot I could find. Normally beyond the prime spots taken by the illegal sellers.

How do you know they are illegal sellers and how do you know they are unlicensed? They could even be directly associated with the store.

Things that are sold this way don't have to be self created-----have you ever heard of Flea Markets? It sounds like this is what could be going on instead of the Farmer's Market type of selling that you think would be better.

I purchased a 14" poulan refurbished chainsaw. I got it home to find out that they packaged the impropersized chain. Drove 74 miles round trip to the Clarksville store and they gave us a new chain. Went home and attempted to start the saw and it began blowing chain oil...

I recently experience the same type of return policy on an item not even used for it's purpose. Go to Lowes or a company with a good return policy.

It took K-mart along time to realize that hassling customers on a return was bad business. They have never recovered.
