Doug , Portland, OR - 29 Jan 2018 - No Stars
The place is a joke put a order in and got it two weeks later. Put in two more large orders for items in stock and joe the owner jacks up the price so i had to change my order and purchased some other items that were in stock he canceled my two orders and refunded my account with no contact. I really don't know why joe is in business he seems to police what and how much people buy from him. This is very strange you would think the reason your selling items in a online store is to make money, i think this is just a hobby that joe just can't let go. I have also filled a complaint with the ca bbb and they have advised me to contact the state of ca to file a discrimination case. I have never seen this behavior from a business owner before and won't recommend or be buying from a-Line-Arrow hobby in the future.

When I first ordered some items from them, it took a while. I discovered after calling them on the phone that some of the items on their website were out of stock, and the site was not updated. They held onto my order, with the hopes that the items would arrive soon. I spoke to the owner and he came up with some alternatives, from which I chose one. Two days later my corrected order arrived. Since then my orders have arrived within a reasonable amount of time, and if there were any "Out of stock" Items in my order, then they would contact me by phone and help me find alternatives to my order. I have not visited their location as yet, but I will when i'm in the area. I found the items ordered to be complete and undamaged.
