OK, we have established that I am not a STUFF ETC. fan. So why, do you wonder I would go into this store being disappointed with the stores in Iowa City and Coralville?!? The answer is simple, I decided that I had not beeen inside this store for some time and it deserved a new fresh opinion and view from me. After all, a lot has happened in my life since I last visited this place, maybe the store had changed too.
Though this store is a lot larger than the ones in the Iowa City area (or does it seem that way because it seems ot be a bit better organized??!?) Whatever the case, it was a much more attractive store though I noticed at once that the prices were still far too high for "re-sale" items. I mean, if you can go to the local mall and find items on clearance of better quality and at lower prices then why would you wnat to buy here?!? And speaking of items from nearby malls and superstores....I did notice some stuff in original packaging......though I don't know from where they originated, I can see some woman who might have been a "shop-a-holic" and decided to re-sell some of her "stash"...those items were priced fairly but there were few of them so I suspect they are a one time item.
bottom line is this.....I would personally rather check out the nearby mall or shop online...even e-bay...but as always, the decidion is yours and yours aline......"let the buyer beware!"
