First impressions count. So we purchased a 54" Panasonic Plasma 3 weeks ago, along with a Panasonic Surround Sound System. Nothing over the top or expensive. The electronics rep who helped us has worked for the company for 8 years. He even went so far as pull out the Consumer Report info as to guide us on what is considered recommended purchases. He still gave us his 2 cents from his own personal experience in owning and selling LCD, LED, and Plasma TVs. That was helpful to have someone experienced to direct us what to buy. And yes there are no warranties for purchases, not even factory warranties as I understand it. However, we had a positive experience and got what we wanted and hooked up our new TV and sound system that day. Great price, great service, no hassles. On a tight budget and want an amazing picture? PLASMA IS THE WAY TO GO!!

The bottom line about shopping here is that you need to know the market prices for the items you would like to purchase. For instance, some Roxy shirts they were selling for $10 are sold cheaper at Ross. Some of the electronic equipment they were selling (that looked used or dinged) can be bought for new at the same price or cheaper online.

They did have a nice furniture selection at great prices and they had some other brand-name clothes (Calvin Klein, DKNY, Lucky jeans) at great prices as well.

Someone raved about the food section, but that just encompassed a few shelves. The office supplies were so-so.

The men seemed to love the automotive area, so I guess they have some pretty good deals going on there.

Their stock does rotate; a salesperson said that they get a lot of cast-offs from Costco and Sears. Be prepared to dig through stuff -- but all in all, it was a pretty fun shopping trip.

We have been avid ELS shoppers for several years. We shared the same great experiences of other reviewers. But we have been more than disappointed recently in its selection and prices. Our recent printer purchase was a huge mistake. It appears their policy of selling only new, slightly "damaged" products is no longer in force. Now ELS s accepting used equipment, products that have been purchased,used and returned. Yet, their prices are only about $50 less than if you bought it new. IN addition, we've had to return twice in order to get all of the components that were supposed to be included. We used to rave about the store. But it looks like we're giving up on them. Prices are too high and the value isn't worth the trip.

PROS: none
CONS: too many

I've lived in this city for eons and it took me almost that long to discover this utopia of shopping that was practically up the street from me.

I love a good deal and this place has it all: clothes, shoes, electronics, toys, tools, furniture, food, hair care products . . . everything!

They take items unsuitable for "regular" sale, meaning they have a dent in the side or a small rip somewhere or they have been outdated. Nothing major, but it keeps them off the shelves of the major stores and ends them up here. Lucky for us.

The prices are great and the selection is fun to browse through. If you're in the area, stop on by, it is well worth your time!

PROS: Great selection and prices
CONS: Not much help on sales floor
