Most visitors to the Aran Islands are there for a day trip, and this store must count on it, because I was overcharged by them in September - caught it - and they billed me the overcharged amount anyway. Now, 6 months later, they have charge me again! This time for 40 more euros than the original price.
The sweater I bought had a price tag indicating it was 79 euros then had another handwritten tag that said it was 89 euros marked down to 79, but they charged me 89. When I went back to the store, they insisted they had to put through a new charge instead of just crediting back the 10 euro difference to my card. I knew this was going to come back to haunt me, and it did! When the bill came, it was for the equivalent of 89 euros. I disputed the charge with my credit card company - and after much paperwork and digging up of receipts, they credited me the 10 euros. At the time, I expressed my fear that the Aran Islands Sweater Market still had a 2nd credit card receipt for me and hoped they would note this in my record.
Today, I opened my new bill, and there was a 119 euro charge for the sweater from September! This time, I had to cancel my card because Capitol One is calling it fraud. And, I have to dig out the paperwork again to prove to them that I already settled this matter (not sure why they cant just check their own documention, but that's another matter)
Now that I will have to do even more work to dig out a 6 month old receipt and prove once again that the item was paid for and only 79 euros, not 119 - I am dedicated to letting everyone know what a scam this place is!
Everyone else on Inishmore was lovely and generous. These Aran Sweater people are thieves!
