Re: “American Classics Marketplace

ACM is great place to shop for a variety of reasons! Not only do they have antiques they also have great gift items for birthdays and holidays! They also have a wide selection of beautiful jewelry from vintage, native American and modern. The prices are great too! Why buy a piece of new furniture when you can get solid wood piece cheaper than pressed wood and the piece will last for generations to come. Looking for a present? don't just go to the mall and pick something everybody else has? You can find something unique like tea cups, jewelry, candles, stocking stuffer items, hostess gifts and new items! Make a gift basket to fit your recipients personality! There are lots of kids items and any collectable you can imagine! So when shopping for those holiday gifts you will find the items on your shopping list all in one place! Hint: Plan an entire day you cant possibly see everything in one day!

Re: “Christal's - Academy

This is a great store. The staff is awesome and super friendly. They are always easy to talk to and definitely helpful with any questions you might have. I have never had a bad experience going in. My husband and I have bought several toys from this store and are always satisfied 😋

Re: “Organica Herb & Tea Co.

This place is AMAZING!! I love this place it has soooo much natural stuff. It's a cute place with so many nutural remedies that I can't wait to go back and try more stuff. I have tried some of the teas and powders and have also gained a deeper knowledge from their kind staff. They have a cute patio with a pond outside to eat your lunch, sit and relax. I wish there were more places just like this one because this place is such a gem. Thank you guys for your knowledge and love of helping people with natural remedies and all things natural! :)

Re: “Aspen Auto Clinic - Tutt Blvd.

They seem to know what they are doing - but it is a very expensive place.

Re: “Mill Outlet Fabric Shop

The employees are very sweet and knowledgeable and they do have a few items that unfortunately other stores do not. However, a large percentage have been there for years (the bolt ends are dated) and the owner is completely condescending and degrading to both customers and employees. He also saves an uncomfortable amount of personal information for who knows what..... A fabric store should be warm friendly and creative and while I prefer to support local businesses, his is one I will not!!!!!

Re: “Aspen Auto Clinic - Tutt Blvd.

This article is wrong, and no research was done. The Independent is brown nosing an advertiser. The above review has to be a fluke. I'm disappointed the Independent would tout them as reliable, without doing any research (just google "Denver, news, hidden camera, Aspen auto clinic". We've taken cars there twice, and both times were a scam. One time they stripped our oil pan screw and then tried to say it was like that. It never leaked until after that point. They wanted to charges us around 250$ for a new oil pan, and another mechanic re-threaded the hole for 120$. They caused it. Another issue, they wanted 800$ to replace the radiator, actual cost 420$. Another issue, we told them something was wrong with the right front axle joint, they agreed, wanted to fix it. Never was an issue, 3 mechanics have all cleared it since. This is a bad business. Beware, do some homework..

Re: “Yarn Outlet

The selection is wonderful, the yarn is everything from fine to bulky, acrylic to mohair, the store smells like a mildew basement but I can even call that character...

But the help, has much to be desired. I've been here a few times and every time it has been rude, seemed more worried about their precious stash than running a business, and after my last experience I decided I would happily pay a little more for the same thing for a smile and a respectful employee who was willing to help me.

I picked out several skeins of alpaca yarn, went to pay and their machine was not reading my card (I had used it not 5 minutes earlier to get gas and lunch) and I suggested typing in the number. She glared at me and said no that charges me when your card comes back declined and I'm guessing it will having this many problems reading it and then I'm out 2$. She then proceeded to tell me where an ATM is and how I need to go get cash and bring it back to purchase because she doesn't have time to play games with my card. (I've had this happen twice out of the 4 times I decided to grin and bear the help. First time I obliged and went and got cash not having time to go somewhere else)

This last time I said thanks but I will take my business elsewhere or order my yarn needs off line.

Sometimes it's worth it to put your customers first knowing you will reap the rewards of a returning happy customer. Good customer service reaping positive Word of mouth is key to growing mom and pop shops these days especially when there's "mega buy it all here stores" for everything on every other corner.

Re: “Treasure Shoppe

I haven't been there since last summer, since I've cut back on my shopping while getting rid of my excess inventory, but it's been one of my favorites stores to find unique and different things, so I hate to see bad comments about it. They sell everything from Antiques to handmade to garage sale stuff, which is why it's so fun, you never know what you'll find. The prices also range from overpriced, to great deals. I don't go downtown very often, but make a special trip now and then just for the Treasure Shoppe, and have been going off and on for years, so can't believe they've gone so far downhill in a year. If you just want antiques, stick to the actual antique stores, since just because they sell some antiques, doesn't make them an "antique" store. A lot of places are combining antiques with other things these days, which is great for people like me, and like they say, one person's trash is another person's treasure. I've always found great things there, at decent prices, since I look for items to resell myself. It's in the top of my top 10 stores to shop, so I really don't know what people are complaining about, they're obviously shopping for something specific and are looking in the wrong store. No matter, the Treasure Shoppe definitely gets a thumbs up from me.

Re: “Treasure Shoppe

Dont waste your time at this places !!!!! Ive rarely EVER seen SO MUCH JUNK AND TRASH packed into one place . Walking through the store i was baffled WHERE ARE THE ANTIQUES ????? All i saw was a bunch of CHEAP OVERPRICED MOSTLY CHINESE IMPORTED CRAP trying to be passed off as collectibles .This is one of the biggest collection of pretty much useless CRAP ive ever seen !!! The word ANTIQUES need be forever stricken from the Shoppes name .Things are grossly overpriced and there is more current imported junk than should be in one place . There are NO mancave items as advertised and the best ANTIQUE i saw in the store was ME you can find much better stuff at the crappiest booth at any flea market than you ll encounter here. TREASURE SHOPPE needs be renamed Mary Ellens Lame Gifts and Chinese Imports. Your time at this stop will be totally wasted .Spend your time ANYWHERE but this cheap knock off of an antique store.Youll be severely disappointed and your parking meter fare will be wasted money.Donate the quarter to the closest homeless person and cut your losses.ZERO STARS MINUS STARS ACTUALLY.What a DUMP.!!!!!!

Re: “Treasure Shoppe

If there was a way to leave a zero star rating I would. They are extremely over priced, I have seen items in the store in horrible condition and not even cleaned being priced for what you can find it brand new at a store. They always switch locations and change the business name as soon as enough people realize they are being ripped off, the store has been the bargain bin and willies treasures previously. They dont offer refunds or anything but yet they dont check whether their items even work or not and quite frequently they dont work and you are stuck with what you bought not working. If you are considering being a vendor and selling things through their store I encourage you to reconsider. The owners wilma and sandra lynch feel that because they own the building they are entitled to take what they want from you. If you do become a vendor at this location I suggest keeping a constant inventory of your things to make sure everything that should be there is still there.

Re: “West Side Bargain Mart

We recently started going to Cheapies Discount Store located on Fillmore where the old Dollar World was located. They are still in the process of stocking the store, but they have some really high quality products and the food is not expired. The store is clean and the staff is really friendly. Check 'em out.

Re: “Heuberger Motors

Something very unexplainable is going on with this Company. First, we were able to select a vehicle we desire pretty quickly from the website. The website appears to be a generally developed site by Subaru to all of its deals.

At first, when we called the Sales Reps, well you know, they were Sales Reps. A price was tentatively agreed upon. However, once they realized it was going to be a cash deal, the company became very toned and hostile, and created some of the most unusual excuses NOT to sell a car. Yes, cash in hand, and they would not sell a vehicle for the following reasons:

1. It wanted an additional $1000.00, in advance of the full cost of the vehicle, which they, 'might' return. The company refused to describe what the terms of the $1000.00 was for.

2. It wanted me to fill-out a credit application for its own use.

3. It wanted us to go through a credit background check.

What the $(%*. So, I properly and timely escalated, what I thought was a misunderstanding: A car company did not want to sell a vehicle to a fully-paid out the door vehicle to a customer. I called Subaru of North America, and they basically told me, they did not care what happened to the vehicle once they handed it over to the various sales store. Wow ! ! !

I received a confirmed email and text from both internet sales director and car sales director, that their policy of discriminately asking for money and full credit checks, and background checks was the way they do business and if I do not like it, the deal was canceled. I countered and offered them to go through a credit check of mine, a security check and make a deposit to me, to secure until delivery of the vehicle. They declined, and said no more business.

I do not care what kind of business they have sold to other people on what or who they are. I have never ever heard of a car company turning down a cash deal, until this one. There is only one reason I can foresee why they did it. They do not make enough money on a cash deal and would rather use those vehicles and practices to leverage many more unwitting people. Buyer be ware. Nonetheless, this terrible decision and experience by both Subaru (which I really respected) and its sales businesses has all but ensured I will not ever consider Subaru again.
