Subject: pacesetter is a rip off
The Pacesetter salesman wanted to charge us $3,400 for 2 storm doors and 1 solid door. I priced them elsewhere and I could buy the same thing and have it installed for less than $800. When I laughed in his face about the price he came up with a special "promo" price of $2,400. (which took him for ever to calculate for some reason). I then had to ask the question that if we would have agreed to the $3,400 that's what we would have been charged. The saleman said no he just had to show me the "retail" price first. Whatever......Then another Pacesetter guy called about a week later and wanted to know why we didn't buy the doors. I told him we could get them for about $800 at L****'s. He said "Go to L****'s then!!!" and slammed down the phone. What a bunch of jerks!
