Very unpleasant experience
Every time I've gone there, I found the owner, Dave, to be overly pushy and condescending in an attempt to make a sale. They have their prices set initially very high. If I've shown the slightest bit of interest in an item, Dave has talked down to me to try and extract an offer from me -- this happened on more than one occasion. The last time, I was eyeballing something that was priced as if it was new in the box and inquired about the price, jokingly saying "Are you sure you're not missing a decimal point?" He asked "how much are you willing to pay for it?" I looked on eBay using my phone and told him how much it was going for there (which was just under 1/5 of what he had it up for) -- never actually promising to buy. He named a price, slightly beating the eBay price. The item was missing a small part, which would not have been a deal breaker if I didn't start to feel a tad uncomfortable overall. I decided I wasn't going to buy from the Howard's. He tried to convince me. I headed for the door. When I was about to leave, he actually called out to me and said "Don't walk out that door!" They (Dave and another employee) then again tried to convince me to buy it. Since when does a customer owe them a purchase? Right then, I felt extremely uneasy and made a quick exit when they weren't looking. When I was outside getting away from there, I heard him call out to me "Hey buddy!" What a way to scare off a customer -- very creepy. Sure, it may have been an awesome deal, but they lost a sale just by how they talked to me. Every time I've gone there, I felt accosted. If Dave didn't talk to me the way he did and didn't come across as desperate to make a sale and seen me only as a dollar sign, they probably would have had multiple sales from me by now. Now, I'm not sure if I ever want to go back there.
