What an experience. Four store fronts and several levels. Virtually anything you are looking for and lots of things you didn't know you needed are here. Definitely a place to visit in Buffalo area.

Very friendly staff for the most part. If you don't find what you want, you don't need it.Only disappointment was no sugar free chocolates in the bulk area.
