    We have a new store In Hillsboro Ohio that just opened up at the end of March 2020 My wife and I waited on the new to wear off before we went there because I do not do well with crowds, first time in the store was right after this covid -19 pandemic first hit so our first trip was cut short just a quick glance around the new store in and out with a small purchase mind you first time ever in a Rural King store. Our second trip to the store was awful the employees treated us like we were trash and how dare we walk in your store with out a cart now mind you this was when your cart policy was enacted apparently , we had no Idea . one employee told us we had to have a cart okay no problem but was very rude about it. We proceeded inside and was screamed at by this same employee that we had to have a cart and we did ! what she failed to mention was every customer had to have a cart and was a royal bitch about it all the while the store manager seen it all happen. I went straight back to my vehicle I was not going to be talked to in this manner. All this over a small bottle of olive oil in which we did not need a damn cart for to begin with so the wife went in got one bottle of the oil took less than 3 min and on the way out of the store another employee accused my wife of throwing a cart at her all the while making a big ass scene in front of everyone about and again the store manager seen it all we left and I called the manager he apologized for the action of the employee both female employees should have been fired on the spot treating customers that way . And as I set in my vehicle I seen at least 4 different people walk right in the store without a cart… I had also order a AR-15 gun from RK GUNS and had had it on order to ship to this store well I called ahead and requested this box not be opened until I arrived the manager agreed so today 4/26/2020 I received a call from the store that my rifle was in and to be there in 10 min because they were opening the box regardless mind you this was my rifle I already paid for my property when I showed up it had already been opened when I got there and every employee made me feel very uncomfortable being there like I was a criminal the only reason i requested this was because I have purchased Guns before and only one other place ever did this to me and swapped out parts on my new gun for old crap. The end check out was the store manager looking over all the info and signed off on the paperwork not so much as a welcome to the store no thank you for shopping with us no nothing, and on top of it all I was told 2 different stories at different times that it was store policy and or it had to be checked immediately per ATF regulations as to why they had to open the box . An employee stated that he thinks they had 24 hours after the gun arrived to check the serial number with the box and if that was the case i had more than enough time to be there before the box was opened. If this is the case you need to change it to where customers are made aware of this action on line before any gun purchase and in the store as well . I am contacting the ATF Monday morning and seeking legal counsel as to the treatment I received from your store I felt Humiliated and discriminated against and treated like I was going to shoot the store up like some damn criminal. Never again will I spend My hard earned money at any store of yours and like many others in the feedback left I to will let everyone know how I was done by your damn store. If this is the treatment you are giving to certain customers you need to re train everyone and replace your managers or go out of business , I was planning on spending a lot of money here but no longer the case.

    Steubenville rural king is a joke! They are forcing people to use buggies that are wiped down with bleach. Personally I am allergic to bleach so I con NOT touch the biggies but yet I was not able to shop and the lady yelled at me when I proceeded to go out the exit xause she thought I was going to shop. You guys are stupid the way you are taking count. Why dont you get a tablet and count people like everyone else is?! You guys are infringing on my rights! I will no longer shop with you guys and I will spread the word to make sure no one does.
    Also the last who.yelled at me and said she was going to call the cops was extremely ignorant and was cussing. I think you guys dont need an employee like that

    The Gainesville Rural King store is horrible! Kyla and Shalonda are both Front End Mangers and they are the WORST! Very negative and rude attitudes. As a shopper I’ve heard very inappropriate comments about “Getting Wasted” and about sexual pleasures. I’ve been yelled at and disrespected by both associates. I’ve seen Kyla yell at customers, including myself. This issue has not yet been resolved after calling and talking to management. Corporate has been emailed about issue. I will NO LONGER be shopping here if they are working. I would rather make the drive to Ocala where I can receive better service.

    Hello: I helped my son purchase a new Husquvana Tractor in Van Wet OH on 04-11-2020. He got it home and a rod was broken on it. Back to the Van Wert store. They did not have anymore and sent him to Decatur IN store 20 miles away. After getting this one home the battery would not hold a charge and he had to use the battery from his old mower. One full mowing later he now is telling me there is a rattling sound in the front of the tractor. What needs to done about this? $2300. is alot to pay for this kind of grief! I look froward to hearing from you. THIS HAS BEEN A REAL HASSLE! I will also sending a letter to Husquvana.

    This happened today when I went in two buy a bag of dog food this morning at 7:30 this morning. n
    Your store in Waterloo IL is trying to force you to use carts even when you don’t want one and if you refuse they won’t let you shop and call the cops on you to have you banned from there store. They even refused to check me out until i throw it in a cart. All this because i don’t want use a cart I did not need which hundreds of people touch. Everyone should stop shopping at your company. You just lost a customer for life an I will do every thing I can to encourage more people not to shop at your company any more.

    The clearfield Pa store you have a female manger who yells at her employees She also gives them an attitude. and when you say something nothing is done. She is also messing around with the tractor manger who is married and everyone in the store knows the hand book states your not to have relations
    It was brought to the attention with the former store Manager. But nothing was done. His wife has come in the store and has said things to them the other assistant mangers also know what is going on with them. Certain people get away with alot of things well others are punished . I sure hope that the new manger does his job and runs the store like it should be .

  • Kenneth says:

    Used to shop at the Monaca Pa store. Was treated very badly by one of your cashier’s. She blew up on me. Because i entered the counter the wrong direction. I didn’t even say anything to her. Just set the merchandise on the counter and walked out. Did not buy anything. I will not be treated like that. I am a customer and do not need to shop at your store. Love the store, it was my go to place any time i needed something. But there is no way at all i will be treated like that. And that will be the last time. Last time i will ever shop at any of your stores. I will not be back if that’s the way the customers are treated by your employees.

No reply not one…I work crazy hours and can’t have my phone at work. Finally at Christmas i had time off and called..Explained my situation and was told everything will be taken care of….yeah well i recieved an email saying it was canceled…I finally just reordered it at reg price because i was tired of the bs. It is bow Jan 28th and im still waiting…very disappointed!

    I worked at the Parkersburg WV store for a little over 5 years till I got hired around by assistant managers then my hours played with within the computer system I had enough. This is a great store but they have lost all touch ad to why this store was ever started. They have lost all meaning as to we are all family. It’s seems the greed for money had come to top priority. The Parkersburg store with what few that started out in the beginning have tried to hold onto the family aspect of it but when you have assistant managers that don’t give a shit or are just too lazy It gets really hard to keep the faith in the company and what it originally was very started for. Growing is one thing but it gets out of control for the greed gets in the way and they don’t see things the same anymore. I miss my job I miss my customer base I had built over the years of being there. This store just lost another manager but what you don’t see is you have one assistant manager that has been there Everytime to cover and take care of this store. Larry C. Shame on you because you know who I’m talking about. Alex M. Shame on you you should have already noticed. Signed Truly yours Jeanne

    In the Zanseville store Wednesday to buy The Dewalt 18 volt combo pack managers special $ 100.00. They had none out, the tag was there for the $100.00. Thursday ad was for $80.00 off of 149.00 so I was there at open I was looking at the empty shelve when a employee helped the man behind me ,the employee went to the back and got him one? I asked to get me one, I told him I was there yesterday ,he told me they was saving them for the Thursday sell, I said: saving ONE! So I walked out. It was not available on line for that price! THIS IS NO WAY to pull someone into a store for an item they did not have. If they did not have that one in the back that I could have bought the day before I might of been ok with this. I am awaiting a reply to make this right?

    Jessie Williams at the Gainesville Fla location on 13th St. provided excellent customer service in helping me locate an important item that I needed and couldn’t locate in your vast store. I very much appreciate his fine customer service. Well done!

  • wright says:

    How long does it take to get parts in for a tractor that you sell ????? The tractor we purchased was not totally in working order when it was sold to us. The boom lift was not correctly fastened, and almost came off in my husbands face which could have injured or killed him. It was taken to the store for repair before I made my first payment, NOW I’m almost ready to make a second payment (in 10 days) on a piece of equipment we don’t have. I’m paying a lot of money for a new tractor – making payments on something that is not in my possession WHAT’S THE PROBLEM? This is not the only item we purchased we bought a side by side that the screw that holds the steering wheel on were not fastened ARE YOU SELLING SHOTY MERCHANDISE?

  • Bruce Reynolds says:

    First off my family has been regular customers of your store in Muncie Indiana for a long time but I feel like I was treated unjustly by the store Manager on September 15th at or around 1pm as I was trying to retrieve a rebate coupon for some ammunition that had been advertised with a rebate. She informed me very rudely that they did not have any rebate coupons. I then asked for my money back and again very rudely she said no. I am deeply shocked that you have this type of individual in that position.
