    Not too surprised to see Hunted House shutting down. The owner, to me at least, came across as such a pretentious snot that I stopped going there a year or so ago. He accused me of price ticket swapping or moving a belt to a different rack to get a discount because the belt was marked at a lower price than he thought it should have been. He acted like he was doing me a real favor by selling me a belt at the price that it was marked. Another time, he felt the need to educate me, in quite a condescending tone, on what Mid Century Modern meant since there is no way a straight white guy would ever know that on his own.
