I have been in the Art Emporium several times. sometimes I made a significan purchase and other times a small purchase. Even when just asking a question without buying, I found them more than willing to respond. And there are great supplies here!
Good for school art supplies, though the prices are a little bit high. The help was knowledgeable, but was rude. They had lots of stock for such a small store and parking was very convenient. It's located in a nice, accessable area, as well.4
