It’s been a little over a year since I wrote my review of Frank & Oak – the online men’s clothing box service. To my surprise, in the past year I’ve had about 14,000 people visit/read that one individual posting. It’s received far more attention than anything else I’ve written on this blog.
Two days ago I received another comment from a visitor which I did not approve to be posted onto my blog. The comment was from someone who worked at Frank & Oak. It was an apology to me and my readers for the troubles that I or anyone else had experienced. It went on to say the F&O had done a lot to improve and then, at the end, offered a 10% discount code to me and/or my readers.
I wasn’t too happy with that. First, I didn’t feel that an employee of a company should use a comment section my blog as a marketing tool in response to a bad review of their company. My blog is personal opinion. I have no agenda other than to tell the truth about things that have happened to me. Second, 10 percent?? That barely would cover the sales tax for most people. So it all came off a bit hollow. I responded to the commenter with my thoughts. But it all turned out much differently than I thought it would.
As it turns our Roger Emeka is a very sincere gentleman (guy) who is truly trying to restore the Frank & Oak brand. He’s honest, and generous, and very straight-forward. There was no disrespect intended. I asked him to change the comment a bit and offer a:
20% discount to my readers.
which he did,
The discount code is FRANKCARES20
I approved his edited comment. To see his comment, go to the original post and scroll down to the comment section: https://noagenda.wordpress.com/2012/07/30/frank-oak-is-frankly-a-joke/
I’ll have more on Frank & Oak coming soon. To anyone who was disappointed with Frank & Oak, at this point, at least consider giving them a second look.
