Same in Chicago, rude, rude, rude at Pearl.
I go to Genesis, which is out of the way, but online they have everything - artsupply(dot)com

Pros: um...

Cons: they are rude countrywide

From a long line of Pearl Paint stores. The store located on south street has three floors of wonder paint, tools, toys and paper. The staff is friendly and helpful. They occasionally run out of specific products, so if you must have it that day - call first!

Pearl is big, but they're often out of the most basic things. The staff is unhelpful most of the time, and frequently they don't know what they're talking about. Traffic and parking are always a hassle too. Sherman Mills in East Falls has a new art supply store that's run by artists, and has plenty of parking. It's only 10 minutes from Pearl, too.

I got to the store and as soon as i got there someone that worked there walked up to me and slapped me in the face. Then they called me gay, not that theres anything wrong with that, even though I would clearly be seen as heterosexual with my American flag bandana and Timberland boots. I will probably return but I will probably bring my pocket knife.

Pearl on South Street has an amazing selection of art & craft suppiles. If it weren't for their staff, I'd never shop anywhere else. Unfortunately, the people working at Pearl make it as difficult as possible to have a smooth, easy shopping experience. They are rude, have a bad attitude and delight in giving out incorrect information to customers they don't like. If you can find it somewhere else, I suggest you do so.

PROS: Good selection
CONS: rude, rude, rude

I can say that I never patronize stores based on their customer service, but this Pearl has THE most miserable, rude, and lazy staff I have ever encountered. I have experienced this there to varying degrees before, but my last visit included staff who would rather finish a lengthy conversation than do their jobs (assist a customer), were rude as I was making a PURCHASE, and unaccomadating has topped it all. I will NOT return.

If you're headed for fine art supplies, forget it. They may "have" what you're looking for, but it's almost never in stock.

Pros: There are, better art stores, in the city

Cons: Rude Staff, Understocked, Miserable Place

This store has all your hard to get art supplies that you weren't able to find at A.C. Moore or Michael's. They have a 3 story store, and a vast variety of products available. A short description on this page couldn't even begin to describe everything that you can find in here. From arts and crafts, to scrap-booking, to the college art student and the modern day freelance artisit - all your needs will be met in this shop. Be sure to ask for help if you cannot locate an item, because sure enough it is probably there.

PROS: Hard to find art supplies, huge stock
CONS: very expensive, non-professional employees

This is the best art store I have ever been in. Anything you can imagine in the art world can be found here. One of the hardest things to find these days is transfer lettering, but it can be found here as well. There are three floors of products and it is all reasonably prices (for art supplies).

This is the most comprehensive selection of art supplies I have ever seen.

Pearl Art is an excellent resource for artists, photographers, scrapbookers, and more. They give discounts to students with a student ID. As with all South Street shops, parking is not ideal.

PROS: Great student discount
CONS: Store is large and items can be hard to find

The South Street Pearl Store has three levels of arts and crafts supplies. The first level contains brushes, paints, pencils, etc.; the second level offers more craft-oriented supplies such as sewing materials, puzzles and the like; and the third level contains canvas materials (as well as pre-made canvases) and drawing pads. Pretty much anything you need for art supplies all in one place.
