  • My husband has taken a variety of watches here for repair over the years, and always comes back with a smile on his face. The two brother/owners are beyond fair, honest, knowledgeable, and friendly. It's always a great experience.
  • It took a while to find a place to park, but the wait was worth it. What a huge selection of both new and used books. They say people do not go to book stores anymore but this place was jammed with people and there was a line to check out. They are doing something right here. Just plan for it to take 15-20 minutes to find place to park.
