Terrible service

I have been using Nimble Thimble for many years so I was surprised to be dealt with by an extremely rude and unhelpful woman there today. I had in fact spoken to her this morning to ask if I could bring a dress down for alteration and she said I could bring it this afternoon. When I arrived at 2.30 she said that she was leaving and that it could not be done. When I asked her why she didn’t warn me of this on the phone earlier she offered neither explanation or apology. When I asked for a time when I could guarantee to be seen she said that was impossible unless I turned up when they were opening up. The young man watching the shop whilst she was gone later told me that she leaves to pick up her kids at 2.30. I have never been served by this woman here before and I will not be coming back. A great shame after years of excellent service.
