AMERICAN Pickers star Mike Wolfe’s antique store has been hit with a complaint after the show suffered low premiere ratings.
Mike, 58, owns Antique Archeology with stores in both Nashville, Tennessee and Le Claire, Iowa.
The Sun can exclusively reveal that Mike’s Nashville location has been hit with a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.
Em janeiro 2022, a customer claimed: “I made an online purchase from this company and they accepted payment. Then they sent me a refund saying that someone else had bought it before me.
“I suspect they accepted a higher offer. And they provided no proof to the contrary. I just want them to honor the purchase like they originally did.”
A representative for the antique store responded on the Better Business Bureau website: “On 1/21/2022, two orders were placed for a****** Imala Movie Prop on our online site. Transaction****** connected to Order Number ***** was placed by a customer in Ohio at 12:27pm for $1406.00
“Transaction ***** connected to Order Number ***** was placed by a [the customer] no 3:22pm for $1406.00. No 3:49pm the full refund was processed for $1406.00 with notes that item was already sold.”

The explanation then claimed the tech team was contacted to find out why both orders were processed.
The comment continued to allege: “The reply was that both customers put the item in their cart at the same time, porém, they did not check out at the same time. We have a custom website and are working diligently to correct the flaw of having customers being able to add and check out single quantity items at the same time.”

The representative claimed the customer emailed them asking about the refund, and they explained it was a technology error.
The company rep then attached time stamps to prove it was given to the first customer at the listed price.
Antique Archeology has received mixed reviews by customers at both locations.
One fan wrote of the Nashville location on Google: “It was so nice to visit the store we’ve heard about so many years from watching American Pickers. I was surprised that the store wasn’t a lot larger.
“Perhaps they have plans to expand once the building is remodeled. But definitely worth the stop!”

“This is a great place to find large items or a business decor or for a local person’s home. For the traveler looking for small items to take with you, the only thing that you will find is souvenirs and t-shirts that are specifically produced for sale and not antiques oddities or curiosities.”
As for the Le Claire store, one customer said: “Nice place, I guess I expected more. Thought there would be a lot more of what you see them digging out of old barns and sheds on the TV show. The staff was very helpful and friendly, it was an enjoyable experience. Plenty of souvenirs throughout the shop.”

The complaint comes amid ratings trouble for Mike.
American Pickers returned on July 9 after being on break since March.
The Sun reported ratings for the July 9 episódio had just 833,000 viewers tune in.
Estação 23 of American Pickers kicked off on January 1, 2022 com 1,050,000 espectadores.
O Janeiro 8 episódio had 1,011,000 people watch.
But by the end of the season, viewers lost interest, as only 830,000 viewers watched the March 12 episódio.
The March 19 episódio, which was the final one before the months-long break, had just 804,000 espectadores.
The new episodes promise to bring “rare,” “incredible” and “museum-quality” picks, according to the trailer.
But fans aren’t too pleased with the episodes so far. As one viewer wrote on Twitter: “Very dry and boring without Frank – scripted, no freestylin’; a very different show. I understand that he isn’t coming back but you should have ended the original show and started a new one moving forward.”
deixou cair sua linha SKIMS Swim hoje depois de modelar muitos dos maiôs ela mesma: “Haven’t watched since 2020 when Frankie got canned. Not going to waste my time on this stuff ever again… I wish they would take this new garbage off the History Channel. It’s a great station.”
Um terceiro disse: “Not the same without Frank.”
Frank, 57, last appeared on American Pickers during a March 2020 episódio, as he took time off to recover from back surgery.
The original cast member’s firing was announced in July 2021 despite his desire to return to the History show.
Frank left the show to recover from grueling back surgery que o deixou com 185 pontos e duas hastes em sua coluna.
Durante seu tempo fora do show, Frank perdeu 65 libras, as he is living a healthier lifestyle and is sober from alcohol.
Frank also told The Sun that he checked into rehab for alcohol abuse in Iowa for 77 dias.
Frank said last year: “Eu fui para a reabilitação e estou sóbrio agora há 11 meses.
“Eu não gostava mais de beber. Minha mãe era alcoólatra e morreu há cinco anos por causa do álcool. Meu avô era alcoólatra e morreu. Isso não me caiu bem. "
Frank continuou que vai a reuniões “duas vezes por semana ”após a restrição.
Frank said he would’ve been sober for a year if it weren’t for a relapse.
Ele adicionou: “Foi talvez por quatro horas, mas foi o suficiente. No dia seguinte fui a uma reunião e voltei ao assunto.
“Acho que nunca mais vou beber de novo porque não gosto mais da sensação e de algumas das coisas idiotas que fiz.”
Frank continuou: “Estou me sentindo muito bem. A vida é boa e gostaria de voltar ao ritmo das coisas. Eu gostaria de ter feito isso há cinco anos, Eu teria sido uma pessoa diferente.
“Foi a melhor coisa para mim e gostaria de ter feito isso antes ou não estaria na posição que estou agora.”
Frank also revealed his feud with co-star Mike.
Frank previously told The Sun: “Eu não falo com Mike há dois anos. Ele sabia que minhas costas estavam bagunçadas, mas ele não me ligou e perguntou como eu estava. É assim que é.
“O show está voltado para ele 1,000 por cento. Não consigo nem me abaixar tanto para mostrar quanto.
“Isso é bom. É como se você tivesse Aerosmith e Steven Tyler e ele é o frontman. Eu encontrei meu lugar, Eu sou o segundo e ele é o número um do programa. Isso não é problema para mim, talvez ele tenha um problema. ”
Ele até admitiu: “Eu acho que Mike quer colocar seu irmão Robbie lá para me substituir. I don’t know why he’s behaving like that towards me.”
Como The Sun relatou anteriormente, Frank é in talks for a spinoff show with one of his Las Vegas customers.
In the pictures, Frank looked happy and healthy as he smiled big next to a fan.
A member captioned the series of photos: “This was from yesterday when Frank ‘picked’ his Corvette up from my buddy Mike’s shop after repair.
“He sat and shot the breeze for three hours or so. It was a blast. Great guy!”

The fan claimed Frank “will never go back to American Pickers.”
The member continued: “He is trying to get a show about nostalgic car restorations with a story behind them in the works.”
