This store has one thing going for it--they do have some items that it's hard to find anywhere else nearby. Other than that it really isn't my favorite place to go. Much of their merchanise seems over priced. It's really hard to get someone to help you. A lot of their products seem really gimmecky and just not good for your skin or hair. Their salon in the back is quite scary. I've never had my hair done there, mainly because it didn't look very clean.
We used to only go to Blockbuster video--mainly just for convenience. But the last few times we've gone in there we've walked out without being able to find a video to rent. I like Bradley video because they have a really good selection. Their new release section is actually new releases, unlike blockbuster where its filled with titles that are already playing on tv. The prices are very competittive as well.
What a cute little toy store! There are a lot of little specialty toy stores popping up now, but this one remains to be one of my favorites. The people working there are friendly and helpful. The merchandise is well selected and merchandised well. I really like going here to browse and to pick up gifts. Just a really cute little shop!
The toy business has been rough for many companies these last few years. This store has always been a great place to go if you don't want to go to the bigger toy stores like toys r us. They weren't a specialty toy store, they carried more commercial type items--barbie, action figures, video games, etc. They always had great christmas sales. It was sad to see them close down last year.
This place is very unique. It's not a traditional type toy store--and they don't try to be. They have so many products that you can't find anywhere else. It can be overwhelming when you walk in there because they have so much stuff, but I would encourage you to walk around and check them out. They moved location a few years ago. The new spot is easier to get to, has better parking and looks so much cuter! I love looking at the elaborate train set they have set up. It's just a very cool toy and hobby shop!
This is my favorite location of Ideal Stationers--I sometimes go to the one in Mill Valley, but really prefer this one. The parking is better, the merchandise is less cramped and it's easier to get help. I like going here to look around and browse all their unique products. I always find good gift here too. This is my favorite place to pick up stationery!
I usually go here looking for some special paper or stationery. They are kind of like a cross between a stationery shop and a gift shop. They have a lot of cute gifty type items. The customer service is okay. I've had a hard time in the past getting help. If you are looking for something different than what you can find at a staples or office depot this is the place to go check out!
This is a pretty good discount store. They have a wide variety of products ranging from food, decorations, school supplies, dishes and more. I usually go in there looking for something, they won't have it, but I always end up walking out with something! They have really good holiday decorations! Their merchandise is constantly changing, so if you see something you like you better get it then because it probably won't be there next time you go there!
I like all the products that illuminations carries. I really prefer the one in Corte Madera to the one located in San Francisco. The reason is the customer service and product selection. The Corte Madera staff is really engaging and friendly, whereas the sf store you are lucky if you can find someone to help you! Also the Corte Madera store seems to be better stocked.
This is a great candle and decoration shop! I love going in here even if it's just to look around, although I'm always tempted to buy some of their good smelling candles. My favorite time to go here is around the holidays because they really do have excellent seasonal decorations. I also like checking out the after holidays sales. You can find some really good deals on items that are listed as holiday, but can work any time of year. Great customer service too!
