“I was very pleased w/my experience here this time, Wendy was very nice, patient, professional and helpful”

“Cristina in the Arts and Crafts shop was so helpful! She pointed me in the right direction for a framing project I was working on, stayed a little late to help me finish it up and even found me a piece of scrap foam board so I didn’t have to buy a whole new sheet. Professional, helpful, and it’s clear she likes what she’s doing – thanks so much”

“I would like to acknowledge the outstanding customer service provided by, Ms. Lejonique Trim, from the Multi-Crafts department… She assisted us with paints and to a clean worktable. She provided much needed information to painting and the process of the kiln. My children were inspired by her praise… As a parent of a child with a disability, her presence was greatly appreciated. It is difficult to have my child be attentive and interested in an activity but not today. My child sat down for an hour and actively worked on his art project. My family left with laughter and enjoyment.”
