Re: “West Side Bargain Mart

It's too bad this placed closed. It was like Extreme Bargains (also closed). The only discount grocery store in Springs is Cheapies on Fillmore. It's a nice upgrade. They have produce, bulk bins and a lot of private label foods. It's become our families weekly stop before going to the regular grocery store.

Re: “Extreme Bargains

Extreme Bargains is closed. Cheapies is the new discount store in Colorado Springs and it's much better.

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Benny's is my favorite bar in Colorado Springs. Also, in my opinion, Ashley is the best bartender in Colorado.

My observations are based on daytime visits since I do not go to bars at night (I am 71).

Dana the owner has an exceptional operation...

Re: “American Classics Marketplace

I am a vendor at ACM with three locations throughout the store. ("Mom & Me, Vintage Linens, Lace and Antiques") ACM gives me the best opportunity to Grow my business because they help. They are interested in our success and we are more than just a number here. Are we filthy rich? No, but we sure do have a lot of fun making a decent profit, doing what we love.

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

A little over a month ago, one of the bartenders named Chris Anerdon assaulted me and attempted to kill me.
He fled the scene of the crime before the police arrived.
I have filed charges with the city, and am in the process of getting a restraining order against him, and several other employees of Bennys who participated in the assault.
Please, especially women, do not go to Bennys. More than one female friend has been Assaulted in the parking lot and the owner Dana, and the incompetent bouncer named Mike have turned a blind eye to drug dealing, violent assaults, sexual crimes, and homelessness on the property.
I have also attempted to reasonably make contact with the owner to discuss the fact that he is essentially endorsing his employees attempted murder of me(worth no provocation).
I am also in the process of going over the incompetent police office Adam Loughtons head and getting a supervisor to expand the list of charges that are to eventually be served to Chris Anderson and several other employees at this criminal blight on our community.

Re: “American Classics Marketplace

American Classics Marketplace is part flea market and part museum. A fun place to browse and be reminded of the way things used to be, it also has plenty of opportunities for picking up a bargain-priced item to complete your home's decor. Turnover is quick though, so you'll need to make up your mind on most things right away.

My only complaint? It's a very large and maze-like facility - thus you'll never remember where you saw something unless you take notes.

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: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Tru, you can be on my list of those with bad behavior. You can see my list on this Independent site in various places. I do not criticize without cause and I use my real name. I will back up my comments with facts. I will ask who are you that you deserve special treatment and demand that someone lose their job. Bad service? I would spill drinks on you and I do not blame a bartender whose job is to serve glasses of angry, stupid, melancholy or however it affects you to everyone. Instant mood swings, fistfights and loudmouths- you name it and if you think your dollars are going to make or break anyone I say "think again".

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Tony...FIRE JAIME. I know 11 myself..that no longer come there because of her. She seens to hate her job and ishateful person. Maybe shes going through some stuff. Dunno, but her combination of ignoring customers and viscious UNFOUNDED verbal abuse is running businedd away. The word from people that temain is " yeah, shes like that". My question is..why is that ok?

I would say to anyone readinh this...stay away. SO many other placed...Thunder and Buttons is one and the barstaff thete will joke around AND take your order..make good drinks and are tge epitomy of great servicr. Probably why I tip Lindsey so well...HAPPILY spending $55 last Wednesday and want to go back. Go there or ANYWHERE else besides B's with'the "B"!

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 😋
