Monroe and Main - Monroe and Main treats good customers poorly!

I have been a Monroe and Main "Gold" cardholder since 2009, and have a credit limit of $1400 with no outstanding balance. I recently received an email for a promotion for 'free shipping on orders $50 or more', so I took my time, picked out some things, and finally whittled it down to an order of $135. I placed my order, and the next day received an email saying that my order hadn't been shipped, but a letter had been mailed to me explaining the situation.

Since I don't have time to call them and wait on hold, I emailed Customer Service and they responded back. Apparently, they expect me to send them a down payment of $34.35 before they will ship my order! I emailed them back and told them that I was insulted that they would do this to a good customer like myself, and that I had manually cancelled the order. I also told them I would never order from them again, and to stop sending catalogs and promotional emails, as it would be harrassment.

I would have expected them to respond to my concern about the order, but noooo...! Their response was: "We have removed your name and address from our mailing list. Please discard any catalogs that may already be in the mail. Your email address has been from our database."

The take-away from this exchange? Monroe and Main doesn't care about customer service. All they want to do is sell mediocre clothing at jacked-up prices. Beware!
