Rip off attitude by Ammolite factory in Canmore, AB

My family and I were excited to visit the Ammolite factory in Canmore, AB, Our first surprise was that the business was located in an industrial park and did not open for business till 10 am. They had a tour of the 500 sq ft premises. We were very disappointed with this 'treasure'. We had a boring tour guide, who just did not seem excited by what he was telling us. He was merely going through the motion. Despite this, we were keen on making an investment in Ammolite gemstones, especially since were told that the gemstone would not be available after 8 years. This is when we encountered poor and uninterested sales staff. It was as if the lady at the counter was doing us a favour by selling us a piece. We spent close to $800 at the store. And we were the only customers at the store at the time. At the end of all this, imagine our horror when we realised that we could cheaper deals at the jewelry stores in downtown Banff. So our advice is to absolutely stay clear of this place

The ammolite factory in Canmore has a very negative poor culture and I saw it when I was there. I would never recommend anyone step one foot inside.

The staff there are horrible (except one lady who was treated horribly by her co-worker in front of me - awkward).

I saw go to Banff and check out the stores that sell ammolite there. Much friendlier environment.

If it's so rare why does every shop you enter in Banff have loads of the stuff? Canmore is the same! Just a big marketing scam.

I am a wholesaler in ammolite stones and jewelry. I also supply many stores in western Canada and unfortunately some stores mark prices up very high expecting big profits on their investments.

Please shop around for best prices and try contacting wholesalers like myself for better pricing. Lorne Powell
