Seems like things are going south for American Pickers star Mike Wolfe. After the show premiered in July with low ratings, the Antique Archeology owner’s store was hit with a complaint from a customer.
The 58-year-old owns two antique stores located in Le Claire, Iowa, and Nashville, Tennessee. In an exclusive by The Sun, Mike’s Nashville store has now been hit with a complaint registered at the Better Business Bureau. What’s next? Read on to find out.
Antique Archeology Customer Claims Store Accepted A ‘Higher Offer’
Back in January 2022, the customer claimed, “I made an online purchase from this company, and they accepted payment. Then they sent me a refund saying that someone else had bought it before me.”
They added, “I suspect they accepted a higher offer. And they provided no proof to the contrary. I just want them to honor the purchase like they originally did.”
However, a store representative cleared the air and commented on the Better Business Bureau website stating, “On 1/21/2022, two orders were placed for a****** Imala Movie Prop on our online site. Transaction****** connected to Order Number ***** was placed by a customer in Ohio at 12:27 pm for $1406.00.”
The rep continued, “Transaction ***** connected to Order Number ***** was placed by a [the customer] at 3:22pm for $1406.00. At 3:49 pm, the full refund was processed for $1406.00 with notes that item was already sold.”
The explanation further mentioned that they connected with the tech team to find out why both the orders were processed.
They added, “The reply was that both customers put the item in their cart at the same time. However, they did not check out at the same time. We have a custom website and are working diligently to correct the flaw of having customers being able to add and check out single quantity items at the same time.”
Is Mike Wolfe’s Store Website Plagued By Technical Glitch?
The store representative further claimed that the customer emailed them enquiring about the refund. Additionally, they explained that the problem happened due to a technical error. They also attached time stamps proving that the orders were placed at different times and were given to the first one at the listed price.
Antique Archeology store has received mixed customer reviews for both its locations.
This complaint hit the reality star amid rating trouble for the show American Pickers. Season 23 aired on January 1, 2022, with a total of 13 episodes. The first episode had 1,050,000 viewers, while the second episode garnered interest from 1,011,000 viewers.
After a hiatus, the show returned with the rest of Season 23 on July 9. However, the ratings were much lower than the first installment of Season 23. The July 9 episode had mere 833,000 views.
American Pickers Fans Miss Frank Fritz
Fans aren’t as pleased with the second installment of Season 23. One Twitter user dubbed the show “Very dry and boring without Frank-scripted, no freestyling’; a very different show. I understand that he isn’t coming back, but you should have ended the original show and started a new one moving forward.”
“Haven’t watched since 2020 when Frankie got canned. Not going to waste my time on this stuff ever again… I wish they would take this new garbage off the History Channel. It’s a great station,” another commented.
