This store reminds me of when I was a kid. It's similar to "Stockwell and Binney" if anyone remembers their stores. I love the smell, the feel and the 'mom and pop' type atmosphere. I like to support local businesses and this is a neat one to frequent! I really like their specials and 'days of old' warmth. Costs are not too extremely high, although, yes you can probably find better deals by going to Office Depot or another large franchise office store. But don't forget the little guys!
