If someone says it’s “too good to be true”…

Jeremy Aldrich -- February 21st, 2009

As reported by WHSV, a widely advertised “emergency liquidation sale” at Augusta Expoland this weekend has customers complaining.  Some customers are upset about the unadvertised $7 entry fee, while others say the sale doesn’t include the products advertised.

The show’s organizer, Aroma Senses LLC, has been the subject of numerous complaints on merchantcircle.com as well as at the Central Ohio Better Business Bureau (the company is based in Columbus).  The BBB gives the company a grade of “F”.

Last month, a weekend sale in Cleveland was shut down hours after opening due to customer complaints.

    They have these at Dulles Town Center like once a year. Complete rip offs. They make all there money at the door and with mobile ATMs (They don’t take credit cards).

    I went to one a few years ago, but the entry fee was only $3. I think I ended up buying one thing – there were a few good deals, but nothing that I was looking for. They drew a crowd, and I’m sure made a lot off of the “cover charge”, but most people seemed to be walking out empty handed.

    Sounds like this is one to stay away from!

    Gee, this sounds like a much more “community friendly” use of expo than a motocross track-Expo is run by incompetents, this is just one more nail in expo’s coffin. what a shame..
    Like the manager didn’t have 30 seconds to do an internet search on the prospective renter?
