I barely can type this without getting upset. Miguel Zabludovsky the Owner of Slate is a Liar, a theive and I always believe that if you lie, you'll steal and if you steal you'll cheat. He did all those things. Here's what happened.
So here's what happened. I had a WHITE BCBG blazer and a tank top that had vomit all over it. I thought the stain wouldn't come out so I just went to BCBG store in Soho to purchase the items again however they were out of stock.....The sales manager Lizzy told me that there was this dry cleaners called "Slate" that can get any stain out and that all the "Fashion" industry designers uses them...I thought oh perfect! So I decided to give them a try. I had the two vomited items in a plastic bag as it smelled really bad
I went into the place on 107 Horatio Street (their new location) and there was 3 men in there, one of them was named Miguel (owner). They looked at my clothes and said it can be fixed in about a week and they would deliver it to my house. Cool. They didn't give me a receipt (red flag) or anything but said they email a receipt and asked for my email address. I gave it to them. done. I went about my Saturday afternoon happy that I didn't have to fork over another $500 for the blazer and tank top.... however I never received an email receipt. I waited a couple of days and then I called up to double check if they were able to remove the vomit on my blazer and tank top and the guy that answered said he would call me back as he needed to check on it...He called back and said, We only have your blazer not a tank top......GASP!!!!!! CODE RED!!!!! "WHAT??" he then tried to convince me that I never brought a tank top in. I immediately got pissed because i KNOW I brought in both because they both had vomit on it and I would have never kept it in my house. I ran over there to confront them and they still were sticking to the "we don't have it" story. I pulled out the receipt for the tank top to prove that I did own the tank top that was given to them and moreover how much it costs as I had just purchased it last month. I asked where my blazer was and they said it was in the BRONX (??????) I called the police in a rage because they really were lying about my tank top and the fact that they didn't even email me my receipt or anything was a red flag. The Police came and they told the officer that they just moved to a new location and the reason they didn't give a receipt was because their system was down. The police officer said "well how do you know what she gave you and what's hers?" The *** had no response.
Police advised me to file a complaint with the BBB and consumer affairs as well as sue them in small claims court. Miguel then called me and said he would refund me my money for the tank top ($139) and deliver my blazer. He NEVER called or showed with any of my items/money. I called him and he completely changed his story and said "I'm waiting to here back from BCBG" --huh? I said "wait a second that was NOT the deal. You now are trying to haggle a free tank top from BCBG when clearly you lost mine? OK, I'm done. I'll see you in small claims court and a smear campaign all over this internet." Luckily I recorded the conversation and when i told him that he immediately started lying and changing his story around.
AVOID THIS DRY CLEANER. THEY STEAL YOUR CLOTHES. ANY CLEANERS THAT DOESN'T CLEAN ON PREMISES BEWARE!!!!! MIGUEL I HOPE YOU ARE READING THIS ALONG WITH THE MANY OTHER COMPLAINTS. YOU ARE A LIAR AND STOLE MY TANK TOP THAT COSTS $140 AND MY BLAZER COSTS $340. GIVE ME MY CLOTHES OR PAY ME MY MONEY!!!
