After visiting the Queen Street location back in the spring, I decided to check out the new College Street store as I passed by. I wish I could say that I was happy about my experience, but I was very disappointed.

After being mostly ignored by the staff working there, I was becoming quite frustrated. I spoke to a woman, who I believed to be the manager. I honestly still cannot figure out if she was being helpful or extremely condescending. I found the product line to be limited, as well. I would not recommend this store to another consumer.

I definitely will not be returning to this location, and I will make sure to only visit the one on Queen street if I am going to continue giving my business to this company. However, I believe there may just be better options out there for purchasing baby items.

My husband and I are expecting our first this June and we stopped in to Baby on the Hip - the College location - for more information about cloth diapering. The online reources and reviews for all the different brands were simply overwhelming me and I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed with the service and level of competence at Baby on the Hip. Rachel, spent a good half hour with us, going through all the brands that they carry, pluses, minuses, customer reviews and even taught us the lingo "in the event you don't get any here, at least you'll know what to look for from another brand." I thought that was incredibly classy and helpful, especially since she told us about the upcoming sale, which meant a lot to us since we are first-time parents and this whole baby business can get quite expensive quite quickly. We placed a special order, saving 15% (so helpful to us) and I just picked them up this afternoon. It only took a few weeks - we were able to wait because we got it in at a good time, so I recommend if you need something like this, do order in advance so that the store can be as helpful to you as possible. Everything was packaged and ready to go (I didn't have to wait for someone to figure out my order) and the staff there was kind enough to let me switch out some of the colours that had come in the starter kits of diapers. No atttitude, no questioning, just pleasant, kind and thoughtful service. It was really a pleasure at every point of interaction and I am incredibly happy with my experience.

Everything else in the shop looks beautifully curated and yes, trendy, but happily so.

I'm in customer service myself and it's not very often that I am this wowed by a retail experience.

Will not come back here. Over-priced items, terrible service and a staff base with no real or working knowledge of the products they are selling, are just some of the reasons why I will not give this store my business anymore. If I am expected to pay their prices then I should at least get the attention that one would expect when dropping over a $1000 on a stroller. These environmentally centered products are no longer a niche market like they used to be, explore your options. Tons of other stores sell these local and enviromentally responsible products as well. Wake up Baby on the Hip.
