A former North Carolina state politician is balling up his digital fists at one ABSOLUTELY essential store refusing to let just anyone through their doors … yep, it’s Pottery Barn.
The guy’s name is Scott Stone, and he served in North Carolina’s House of Representatives a few years back — now, he’s an angry old man yelling at his local in-mall PB for standing firm on their by-appointment-only policy, which is super inconvenient to him.
Rep. Stone writes, “Dear @potterybarn (and other retailers) : I am NOT shopping by appointment. You’re allowed to be open, so be open.” He had another must-hear gripe … “And why close at 5 when mall is open until 7? Do you actually want to sell anything?”
Pottery Barn’s sign here reads, “We’re Open 11-5 by Appointment Only! Call 704-442-9493 to schedule! Important Note: We Will Begin Taking Returns on 5/25. We Can’t Wait to See You!!” They’re in Charlotte’s SouthPark mall, which reopened its doors a couple weeks ago.
We tried calling them up for comment … but the staff there didn’t wanna talk. At any rate, Rep. Stone had some follow-up thoughts on the mockery he’s receiving, saying … “Love how lefties are so worked up about my last tweet which highlights the frustrations so many have about how slow NC economy is reopening – slower than most states. Maybe they believe govt should continue to write checks forever and keep the entire economy closed?”
The big question we have over all this … what did the guy so desperately need at Pottery Barn???
