    The Barnes and Noble at the Somerville Circle in NJ couldn"t be nicer! I had an issue with my Nook (which I read all the time) . I happen to get the manager, Marina, when I called and she was so helpful and wanted to make sure that I was listened to and taken care of. I have been a member of Barnes and Noble for several years now and today really showed me how they step up and take care of their patrons.
    Thanks!

    A large sport shop with a wide variety of sporting items and clothing. East to shop for shoes and clothes, clean, great location.

    If you are looking for a bargain and a way to have the designer looks without the designer pricetag, this store is meant for you......as long as you do not mind a little bit of scarcity when it comes to assistance in the store from associates. While I do like a bargain, and I do like to be left to shop at my leisure, I found that finding ANYONE to assist with questions and dressing rooms was a challenge here. I understand this is a large footprint for a store...but there were associates around....they were just not very focused on customer service. I still managed to drop a few hundred bucks here, but I definitely have better customer service experiences at Century 21.

    We sought this place out while killing time before dinner in Gramercy. We have a middle grade reading enthusiast and a new chapter book reading child. The staff helping us was so lovely and gave excelent recommendations to us for new book! She was very knowledgable about the genre we liked. ..she was like Good Reads in person.

    This place is a nice reward for the kids - half way between times square and the World Trade Center - just exit the subway at Union Square and you are there.
    What kid doesn't like seeing all the candy they could ever imagine for sale.
    I did not see many international candies, besides gummy products... and swiss chocolate. I was expecting more asian and european brands... more unusual international items.

    We were walking by CAMP and noticed that Milk Bar was no longer the ice cream they served. I walked in to see what ice cream was featured and was greeted by Tamia, an employee at Camp that is very excitable, exuberant and has the best energy! She explained they now have Jenni's ice cream and insisted we try all the flavors. Sure enough, we had to get a scoop (each) but then as we continued to peruse through the store, she acted as a very informed personal shopper explaining local favorites versus tourist favorites and age appropriate gifts. I ended up buying a book, some kids toys for my niece and nephew and my colleague's kid a gift that they sent to Austin, Texas. CAMP is a great store but special recognition to Tamia who made my curiosity an unforgettable shopping experience!

    I went here looking for second hand Criterion Collection Blu Rays, and they had a nice collection of about 30 titles. Each cost about 18 dollars.

    Dropped in to get some toys for my grandson. Range was solid, prices I can't gauge so well, but seemed ok. Staff didn't ask if I wanted help, but I was fine with that. Stock well set out. I expected it to be a bit more alternative and suited for creative things, but to me it seemed mainstream.

    I visited the Lion Brand shop on my recent trip to NYC from South Africa. I purchased some very nice yarns and was lucky to receive a discount! Thank you very much!

    They have very nice sandwiches made here
    In an old time counter setting. They have very nice meat and non meat items. Service is quite good and the prices are rather low. Love the atmosphere. Here.

    This store has been closed for months. There is another one in Soho, which is much larger than this one was. That one contains surprising items, and is fun to shop in.

    This is the place to shop if you are seriously into photography. The prices are reasonable on the equipment they sell. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the items sold there. Definitely worth a trip for anyone into taking photos.
