Not a bad place to shop. Decent sports selection. The thing is, that being in Boulder, there's so many other outdoor retailers that blow Garts out of the water. Watch for sales, though. Can't beat those.
I cannot tell you how highly I regard H and R Block on Broadway. Being a contractor, freelance writer, I would never have been able to get money back on my taxes this year. Not on my own.
Gigantic store stuffed with used clothes and miscellaneous items. Go only when you know exactly what you want and where it is. Or when you have a few hours to burn.
The Buffalo Exchange is where I got to buy second-hand clothes -- why? Because it's got stuff that I'd actually wear! No tent dresses. Except cool ones.
Think of a pedestrian crossing the street in front of you. They have the radest shoes on you've seen in months. They got them them at the Pedestrian.
The U of C is a great big reason Boulder is the Boulder we know. It's a crazy place. Lot's of politics, outlandish students (and faculty), etc. The school also brings the Arts, sports, and revenue to the city. I recommend looking into what it has to offer the community.
The Camera's an OK paper. It does the job, covering local news, etc. It's not an extraordinarily well-written paper, but your expectations shouldn't be all that high. I've always had great customer service, though.
Easy Come, Easy Go. That's King Sooper's for ya. Typical Sooper's store. Nice folk, same reasonable prices. Produce isn't always the best, but nothing much to complain about.
One of the smallest shops in Boulder (per sq feet). That's part of its charm, though. Always great wine, nice specials, and superb customer service.
Always have top-notch service at Shell. Once, I got gas and this other customer was peeved at her daughter. The employee inside handled them with the utmost courtesy. I was impressed.
