HOUSTON -

A popular local retail chain is under fire, accused of deceptive business practices.

The Houston Better Business Bureau says it has received several consumer complaints against Charming Charlie. Upset customers from all over the country claim the cashier at their particular store tricked them into buying unwanted magazine subscriptions after telling them they were eligible for a free one.

While many of those complaints have been resolved, we reached out to Charming Charlie for a comment. We are awaiting a response.
