Terrible employee in Saugus, MA store!!!!

Was at petco on rt 1 in Saugus yesterday when i was getting out of my car to go inside and shop i witnessed an employee a young woman following a customerwho was an older woman out of thestore screaming obsceneties at her from the doorway. I couldn't believe thevulgar things and swear words that came out of her mouth!! I left another review on Google and yelp because i couldn't find anywhere on petcos website to leave a comment besides this! Teach your employees better customer service petco! You just lost a good customer for choosing to hire a disgraceful employee like that girl! I can imagine i will not be the last customer lost over her. You NEVER SHOULD TELL A CUSTOMER TO GO F@$!HERSELF!!!!! NEVER EVER EVER. SHAME ON YOU PETCO!

Why would someone with no people skills work in customer service? She told me once I'm not buying the right food for my dogs. Not telling me a better option just trying to make me feel like a bad pet parent i let that go but seeing this same employee yelling at am older woman like that is just not something that should happen no matter what. Gladto see things will be handled I've never had an issue with anyone else from that store they are all great but this young lady just does not belong anywhere ne@r customers!
