“I love this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We stop by this store frequently and were actually in there just a few weeks ago looking for a Tom T. Hall CD. If you are a fan of old (real) country music then don't pass this place up. With the advent of the internet you can of course find most of the same musical selections easily on the web but there's just something special about browsing around in this shop because sometimes you find something very special that you would have never thought to look for online.

On the other hand, to be completely honest the building is old and the inside of the store could use a little TLC but then I'm not planning on eating there so I can overlook the store's physical problems. There are also wide variations in the reception visitors receive from the staff. Sometimes I go in there and the staff on duty do not seem to want to be there at all and will only offer to assist you if you ask for help. On other occasions the staff will give you a taste of good old Southern hospitality. One lady in particular is very helpful and friendly and really knows her stuff so that she can make some really wonderful recommendations. When she is on duty this place rises to a five star shopping experience but the rest of the time it is a solid four!

“Pigeon Forge ETRS; Not Very Friendly Sales Staff"”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2009

.The ETRS cant be beat by anyones standards, but the 1 in Pigeon Forge Tn, is a Very Unfriendly Place To Go Too. To Me it does not represent the Spirit of the Late Mr. Ernest Tubb and it sure dosent meet the standards of the person it represents. Maybe I am Just Old Fashioned, but when I go into a business I still like to be said "Hello Too and May I Help You". Not some person stand behind a counter and stare at me, like I am some sort of a goon. Just my 2 bits worth. Thank You.
