I will never go near here again! I have had this person replace watch batteries for me before and he was rude and condescending to me, and to others who came in the store, especially women. I recently brought in my mother's antique pocket watch that had a broken crystal thinking that although he was rude, he was a professional watch repairman. After a month, the crystal was fixed (he has more serious watch repair sent out somewhere), but the perfect beforehand hinge was mangled to the point that it does not close properly and looks like it is going to break altogehter. When I politely asked if he was going to have the person fix it he said, "he won't do that, it's an old watch and the crystal is fixed which is what I said I would do." He then said, "I'm done with you!" and moved on to the other people who had entered the store! I was dumbfounded. They looked at me in amazement! I suggested that he would have made note that the hinge was broken when he took it in, if indeed it was, and he ignored me. This man does not deserve to be in business. I ended up paying him for the privledge of breaking my watch to a greater degree than when I left it with him. There is a wonderful woman at Tremont Pharmacy (on the oposite corner of the same mall) who will happily change your batteries for the cost of the battery itself. I believe she was a jeweler at one time. She can point you in the right direction for watch bands as well.

Highest prices for selling coins. Owner pays more than anyone in town or out of town. Lots of free parking and no steps up/down like some of the other places.

I received very prompt service from the knowledgeable owner. He went over everything with me and even shared some stories about the coins and paper money. I would go back.

I was paid very high prices for my gold coins. Owner uses the current precious metals spot price. He went over all of my coins and paper money and gave me a price for each item.

i went here to get a battery changed in my sieko watch. they were good cuz they werent too busy and took care of me right away. the price was fairly lower than other big places too which was nice. parking was kind of a problem, probably because of the surrounding stores and their bussiness. i would recommend them for a quick fix.

I have dealt here for years. i have been to the store i would say over 100 times and the owner is very fair on selling and buying. i would say best prices given for coins in ohio,, since i do not buy much i only like to sell.
also i would say the owner is very good with the watches and even helped make my dads car unlocker work. very nice store and well lit. good for looking at nice coins and watches.

Pros: i have dealt with this store and the owner

Cons: i have yet to have any bad things to say. very nice:)

I have been to several local dealers and I must say here he is always willing to tell me about my coins and why they have value (or don't). I have been treated fairly on both the buying and selling side of the table here.

He is sometimes busy, but always spends time with me when it is my turn.

Go here and you will see!!

Pros: Willing to share knowledge Pays Good prices

Cons: Sometimes has a line

I have been buying coins on and off for a few years. Had some good and bad experiences elsewhere around town. When I walk through a coin shop, I can usually expect mediocre service unless I am dropping some serious cash. I did not get mediocre service at all here. Very knowledgeable, helped give advice on a purchase, gave me the pros and cons about a coin. Actually he told me to wait on a purchase because he was expecting a coin in that was way better for around the same price. Don't know many folks that do that much at all now a days. Will definitely go back.

Pros: Good selection of watch bands

Cons: None

I have never been treated so poorly at a business establishment. It was almost as if he took great pleasure in not being able to fix one of my watches. He took one look at it.. said "can't work on the inside" (all I needed was a battery), dropped the watch on the counter and walked away. What an @$$hole!

Pros: very fast watch repair

Cons: horrible social skills

I called him about a problem with my watch, and he was very terse and short with me. I called him back to ask a further question, and he gave me a one word response and hung up. I remember him from the days when he had his business on 5th avenue. He was rude then, and he's rude now. Avoid him!

I have been a coin collector for more than 8 years. I have shopped many, many coin stores in those 8 plus years, and I have never been treated worse than this merchant. His lack of knowledge regarding coins was unbelievable. He also was extremely rude, and coupled with his lack of inventory make this store one that I will NEVER go to again!

The person at the counter lacked basic people skills.
The review requires 100 characters(so this), but I think that my lead sentence says enough.
