Re: “The Liberal Store

I like them. they do original work, 'speech'; "nothing has ever been broken as proof that anything is true", and
"plunder is groundless" yes, love the store.

Re: “Christal's - Austin Bluffs

I get you have to be 18 to see this stuff but i feel you should only ID if you appear under a certain age. Like 18 or 25.... i am 26 and my bf is 27 had to leave because he forgot his ID. The worker did not have to be rude . I get you are trying make sure underage does not see or enter but you do realize your huge windows displaying shit right.

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: “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: “American Classics Marketplace

Have shopped there over 10 years and always liked finding unique things. My GO TO place!

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: “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.
