HomeGrown Decatur

#art_gallery #store #point_of_interest #establishment I have been shopping at Homegrown for the last 4 years. Even though they are way over price air-plants at $6 each! I have always supported them. I live in the area and our family has a business in the square. We love nothing more then to contribute to local business. However, the this past week I had a very upsetting interaction with the owner of Homegrown. My friends and I parked in the back of the business to run in quickly before heading to the airport My friends were out of town and had requested to go shop there before departing. On the way into the shop we decided to step inside Calle, the establishment next door to Homegrown. As we are getting our drinks, a woman stomps in yelling at the top of her lungs at the server and for anyone else to hear. Someone is parked in her spot in the back and she demands they move their car. As we are trying to process what is happening our sweet server admits that she might be the one parked in her spot. The woman proceeds to ask our server if she can read. There is a sign that says parking only for such and such. That she is the owner of Homegrown and that no one should be parked in her spot! Even though there are plenty of spots open Did I mention it was just noon at this point. I start walking towards my car to move it and to avoid anymore public drama. However, I cant move because she has purposely blocked everyone in. I stand there as she is running to every business near by and doing the same thing. I walk back into the restaurant to wait for her to come back so that I may move my car 91 degrees outside. She comes back after 5 or so minutes yelling again that the server move her car. I very quietly stand up and say, Maam its actually my car and we are waiting to pay to leave. She then yells at us as the whole restaurant is watching and listening I dont care, move your car right now. There are 3 of you!!. Again she proceeds to tell us that she is the owner of Homegrown and she does not care and she is going to call the police. My friends and I are mortified along with everyone in the restaurant at the way this woman is acting. Not to mention she keeps mentioning her business. As we are walking out to move the car she continues harassing us. She then walks over with a cop to try and force us to do what we were already doing. The cop was very nice and asked if we would mind just moving. Of course there was no problem moving the car as we were leaving anyways. Im so embarrassed that any business owner in the square would ever act that way to anyone. Not to mention the way she treated our poor server who was so sweet and polite. Coming into a business making a scene when you are a grown woman and business owner over a parking spot is completely uncalled for. We will never step foot into Homegrown again. We are simply disgusted with the way this woman treated local patrons and employees of the City of Decatur.
