Now I can see where some people might find this shop to be just up their alley, style and convenience wise. But for me, it just doesn't fit my needs, style or even price wise at this time.

I ws looking a month or so ago for something to replace the old sofa in the basement. It is a huge, heavy sleeper sofa, which although it is in really good shape is over 20 years old and quite honestly is pure torture to sleep on. Though we don't have many overnight guests, I thought maybe I should give some serious thought to replacing the old dinosaur with a new model.

A friend suggested I check out this store and I figured why not....it was easy to find on 106 Linn Street, and though it can be a pain to find parking because it is so close to campus, I thought the walk might do me some good.

The minute I entered the store and began to browse I could pretty much tell that this wasn't oging to be an option for me. Not only were the styles of futons a bit much for this middle class lady, but the frames and cushions were priced a bit higher than I had originally wanted to spend on a futon. I had originally looked at replacement sofas and their prices were about the same. I figured if I was going to drip that typeof $ I'd rather get a sturdier piece of furniture for the dollar.

I also must be honest when I say I did not recieve the customer service I expected when I enterd the store. In the end, I had to approach a sales clerck and because of that my opinion lessened towards the overall friendliness of the store.

If you are a futon lover, young or young at heart by all means check out this store and see what they have to offer. Remeber, my opinion is just that...an opinion and in no way does it mean eveyone should feel the way I do. Let me kinow what you think of this store...i'd love to hear your reactions to it!

PROS: ...interesting choice of furniture
CONS: ....a bit pricey and not customer friendly
