In our downtown area, Mehan's is a landmark and has seen many changes through the years. It's counted on for supplies by many local businesses, and has tried to stay ahead of the chain stores. They can't compete with prices, but their local ambience makes up for it.
Parking is a trial however as parking is a nightmare in downtown. No parking lots, just store front and a bit here and there around back. The parking is what hurts them as much as the competition from chain programs.
There is a good selection of desk and office equipment.
