Did the groupon not link to a website or other information about her? I bought a photo groupon and while it didn’t say studio hours on it – there was a link to the website that states their hours. You always have to read before you buy, especially with a groupon.

I think this is unfortunately one of those “buyer beware” situations.

The store has 2 rules it seems:

24 hrs notice for cupcakes

Not open on Saturday

So, if you needed cupcakes for saturday, the order should have been placed Thursday for pick up on Friday.

With Groupon deals the onus falls on the purchaser to investigate the policies and hours of the offering business.

Unless the Groupon specifically said “Order Cupcakes Friday for Pick Up Saturday” deal… then it’s a learning experience for you.

That stinks. But on the brightside, you can have cupcakes during the week. They are just as delicious on a weekday! lol.

@MlleBrielle:  In our region Saturday often bakeries are closed. 

 

Sorry this happened but it doesnt sound that unreasonable in my mind.
