Backroads in Nowthen just pulled a shady move. We booked the center for July 2010 back in June 09, even put down the deposit. My mother called in Dec. 09 to set up a meeting so my fiance and I could see the facility while we were home for the holidays. The coordinator agreed to the morning meeting, no problem.
Skip ahead to yesterday (Dec 26), we show up at the center and the coordinator is nowhere to be found. The waitress then tells us the facility is moving...in 3 weeks! The coordinator agrees to come up to the center in an hour.
We met with him 2 hours after our scheduled meeting only to find out that yes, the facility is moving down the street to a much smaller location. He believes he can fit 200 and doesn't understand why we are upset. When we scheduled this reservation we stated 250-300 guests!
We drove by the "new location" -its in a strip mall between a tanning salon and a subway restaurant, and from the outside looks to hold more around 150. And the "for lease" signs are still hanging on the window.
So now it is less than 7 months prior to our wedding and we have no facility.
I know its a little far from MSP to be a common site, but he failed to give us any notice of the change, so he may not be telling any other brides-to-be.
