After seeing miles and miles of billboards advertising the store on the way into El Paso, we were disappointed to arrive and discover it is now open for wholesale only. Unless you are a business owner, do not waste your time. And please, take down your billboards!

Yes, it is only open for wholesale and YES it is amazing!! There is an abundance of awesome items and everyone is very friendly! We found great prices and variety. I recommend any business owner to take the trip to visit in person, you will not be disappointed.

Unless you are a retailer with a tax id number. They do sell on their website, but its not as fun as it used to be when you could just walk in. Please do pull your billboards down. We do not want anymore people from out of town dissapointed anymore.

They have closed their retail outlet. Said so on the door. Only open to the trade-- need a tax id number. Do not go, waste of time.

After finally getting time to go to, what I understood to be, an El Paso landmark I was met with Going Out Of Business signs. I was a little disappointed going in to what amounted to a 1/4 full warehouse. But after only a few minutes I realized that if all the items for sale were like these few remaining... More

So, here's the deal. I get that this is a "small business." I get that y'all want to spend holidays with family. But you know what? People travel during the summer, especially on summer WEEKENDS. So when you pass 1,863 El Paso Saddle Blanket billboard ads on your way into town, and when there are full page ads in every... More
