I had to pick up two that were difficult to find. I called and they asked if I wanted to have the books put on hold and I did so they put them on hold and I was able to go to the front desk and pick them up later on in the day. Great service and inventory.

It's a bummer that the people here ruin what should be a great experience of a 3-story bookstore. From the moment you step foot inside, the security guards all watch everyone like a hawk, which is really uncomfortable. All I wanted on my lunch break was to curl up and read my book at Barnes & Noble. I went in, and unlike literally every other Barnes & Noble in the world, there is no seating in this location. No couches, chairs, lounge chairs or benches. Just a few hard wooden chairs on the 3rd floor that were all taken. So I contented myself with sitting down in a corner away from pedestrian traffic in an obscure part of the store and read my book. After a bit, someone came on the loudspeaker and said that "for your safety, don't sit on the floor." As I got up, I looked right at a security guard who was standing across the way, watching me. Rather than come up to me and ask me to move, and tell me the no-floor-sitting rule like an adult, he had someone come on the loudspeaker to the whole store. How embarrassing! I left right away and read outside at the Promenade. This Barnes & Noble wants you to spend your hard-earned money on a book at their store, but then immediately leave, not relax and enjoy your new purchase. Uh I will definitely be doing my book purchasing on Amazon and Google Play from now on where the employees aren't rude and don't humiliate you in front of others when you're just trying to mind your own business.

Whoa two stories?! Big location with a really neat Doctor Who section *fangirl screaming* and a decent Game of Thrones section for the rest.Okay what makes this B&N cool and worth the 4 stars, you might ask? GUNDAM MODELS! No idea how popular these are, but I'm a huge fan of Gundam Wing and Duo Maxwell's Deathscythe was on display.It's hard to complete with online retailers for books, so I tend to use B&N for window shopping. I think if they actually price-matched online retailers, they may push their inventory a bit more. However, brick & mortar stores do suffer the wrath of rent and utility expenses.

It gets a two because it has a separate cafe area which is small and doesn't allow you to take books or magazines inside.  Also, you have to buy something at the cafe in order to get a code to use the bathroom.  I understand the reasoning, but still.  What if you have to urinate so you wait in line, finally buy a coffee, get the code and use the bathroom, then drink the coffee which makes you have to urinate again?  Do you then have to stand in line, buy more coffee, use the code...

I used to love this place. It's a really nice book store with a huge selection. I love how the store is split into 3 floors. Everything is easy to find (there are kiosks everywhere).Sadly, my most recent trip was extremely disappointing. I was looking for some Kaplan GRE notecards. I didn't see them on the shelf, even though the computer at the kiosk said they had them in the store. I saw an employee (she had her namecard/lanyard) standing at the employee computer next to me. She had a stack of books on a dolly next to her, so I figured she was working. I asked her if the information on the kiosks were up to date, and she said it was. I told her what I was looking for and how I couldn't find it on the GRE shelf that was RIGHT BEHIND US. She looked at me with a really annoyed look and said, "WELL THAT'S NOT THE GRE SECTION....ITS AROUND THE CORNER." I was so confused and said, "Well, that's where all the GRE books are." All she responded with was, "I'm on a break. There should be someone in the CHILDREN'S SECTION who can help you." I thanked her (FOR NOTHING) and walked over to the children's section and found 2 super sweet girls who happily agreed to help me. One of them walked me back to the GRE section (where the rude lady was still using the computer). Turns out the girl helping me needed to use that very same computer that awful lady was using to look up if they had the notecards I was looking for. Turns out they had what I was looking for and it all worked out.But that particular RUDE AND LAZY employee really irritated me.Was it really that hard to look up something for a customer on that very same computer that she was using? Was it too much to turn around and see that the GRE section was right behind you?! Good thing I can read and wasn't looking in the wrong section that she pointed me to.

I'm happy that at least there is a book store on 3rd Street Promenade. Barnes and Nobles is on the corner of the street and it is located on 3rd street. So after browsing all your clothing stores and accessories, make the book store the last spot since if you do find something it might be heavy and you will at least just have to lug it to your car. Came here a few times and love the variety. But there have been times when I just couldn't find the book and they weren't selling it in any of the Barnes and Nobles, so my last option was Amazon. Still I think going to a book store is fun and also you can look inside the books to see what your going to get. Also went to a book signing just yesterday night for Dr. Susanne Bennett. The turnout was pretty nice and the room it was held in by Barnes and Nobles was on the second floor. So this was actually my first time having a book signed before and sitting for two hours. Loved every minute of it and wouldn't mind going and seeing other authors and getting my book signed by them ! This is why we still need to keep book stores in business and buy books from them!

As someone who was totally spoiled by the large Barnes & Noble in Ventura, I am really happy about this location.Everything here is clean and organized.  They have a great manga and comics section and a lot of natural light.  I also love the ceiling in this place.  And if my memory serves me correctly, there are actual trees in this place!  Total indoor outdoor vibe.Great music section with vinyl.  A lot of DVDs as well.

I went here with my sis for an author reading/signing (Laurie Notaro - LOVE her). I usually don't buy hardcopies of books anymore. I get them all digitally on my wonderful Nook E-Reader now. Since the author was doing a signing, we bought copies of her new book for the occasion. A bit pricey (I got used to the digital pricing), but she was worth it. They had the reading/signing upstairs in a private back room. We were there early enough to get some free swag the author brought and to get some good 2nd row seats. I noticed they've done A LOT of previous readings there and have signed posters of the authors posted up on their walls. A few that I would have loved to have seen were Judy Blume and Jim Gaffigan. The event coordinator was a nice guy. He was nice enough to take pictures for some of the attendees. When the event was over it was about 9pm. It was dark and that's when all the sketchy people come out. There were A LOT of transient/homeless looking people just sitting at the fountain in front of the store. We made no eye contact, walked briskly to the car, locked our doors, and drove home.

I agree with Suzie Q. Sad that there's not more competition in the bricks n mortar world of books. I had never been to this store before and can only compare it to the BN at The Grove. Yes, there's a security guard at the door that is a bit off-putting. 'Shrinkage' is a real retail-killer, so yeah, it makes sense. And, he seemed like he was only trying to help to hapless Author Selling Book to the Side That Nobody was Talking To. But, I felt immediately hard-sold. And promptly avoided that table.Ironically, when I went to look for a New Release, there was exactly one lonely copy on display. I asked an Associate if that was all they had, and was informed they actually have eight copies. So, um, it seemed weird. Also weird to me was how they sell the same book online for 30% or so less. In person, full price. I was ready to buy it, but just didn't feel like after coming here. I understand there are all kinds of demands for book retailers. I've actually worked at two different (non-chain) stores in my life, so I appreciate how the margins are brutal and the need to push non-books and branded kid figurines are necessary.I went with out of towners, so I was lolling about - checking out different floors, different sections; sampling, if you will. During which, I interacted with three different associates. One was awesome and helpful - cheerful and resourceful. One was kinda busy and not all that interested. One was business-like and gave minimal customer service. And I know these guys are working very hard on a slowly sinking ship. Still, bookstores have been slowly sinking ships for decades, and that's just the way it is. Overall, it felt fairly joyless. The section for where a child get sit down and audition a new book is at the appropriately titled, Stage. But man, is it tiny. The few chairs and small lip of the stage were cluttered and not all that comfy. Maybe if this particular store was more inviting, they'd rate higher. As is, I left thinking that while I'm very glad that it exists, I hope they find a way to more obviously interested in existing.

This store is sooo annoying.  There are always a million loud and rowdy people and children there. Also, there's no place to sit in whole store, except the window ledge, which is quite nice, I must say.

I've gotten few books there before. Selection of books (from books I'm into) are good to great. Staff are ok to friendly/nice. Lines can get long. Its pretty much organized. They have a coffee shop inside to the left.Usually I look to see if there is any books that fit my interest in the discount section and there's usually 1 or 2 that I see. And then go to the other section and pick 1 out. I usually buy a book every time I go there (once or twice a year).

They're very personable in this location. I had already bought some books earlier today, so I didn't buy any books today. They were very well-stocked as I was able to write the names of titles I'd like to read later. However, I did purchase a vibrant tote that I will utilize happily.

Barnes & Noble, and this store in particular, REALLY need some competition! The one positive first: the layout w three floors and lots of space is nice. Now the reason I gave it 1 star:1) SECURITY! There are about 4-6 security guards in the store... WTF??... Yes one or two on each floor roaming the floors. Wow, did they have a murder here and didn't tell anyone?? I felt like I was in jail, bumping into one around every corner! Super unclassy at best.2) GET THEE TO A NUNNERY! You can't sit on the floors?? I agree with the other reviewer's here. Why the heck not? It's a bookstore for god sake's, Not a nunnery! Safety shmafty that's hogwash. They also have all the chairs lined up back to back with no privacy and far away from the windows. Very uninviting. There are perfectly beautiful spots they could put chairs on the end caps looking out at the promenade, getting some sunshine. And yes they could allow people to sit on the windowsills. 3) NO BATHROOM. This is just unacceptable. When I asked why, the robot lady stated "we used to have them but they just didn't work out"... Again WTF?? And the Starbucks downstairs wants you to buy a drink before they'll let you pee pee. All I felt in this store was restriction and unnecessary lack of, accommodation. I felt like I was a five-year-old in a museum and couldn't touch anything and had to tiptoe around and hold my pee. They may as well put seatbelts on the back to back chairs and do a line up against the wall not facing any windows, then have all 6 security guards pace the floor in front of you to make sure your legs are uncrossed and you are not turning one too many pages.Yup, three strikes and they're out. I won't be coming here again.

I have never had any problems with barnes and noble at this location, so I'm stumbled for reason why this location only got three stars? Yes, this barnes and noble does not have parking, but street parking is widely available! And the plus side of this location is that they are open fairly late, which is convenient to come here after dinner at the promenade! This location is fairly big, and has friendly workers. You can flag anyone of them down, and ask questions and they answer you with the best of their knowledge and a smile to go along with it :) I love the classics section, which also have the special barnes and noble bonding. I also love their clearance section, which they have many different books for a great bargain. I usually get 15% off sent to my email, and always come down here and buy a few reads and use the coupon! The staff here is great, and so is the selection of books :)

I think by the virtue of its location in the 3rd Street Promenade, this place is already slated for being overloaded with tourists. You really can't get away from the crowds of people who know what they're doing, and people who are just visiting ... maybe even from out of the country ... who has never seen a Barnes and Noble before in their lives.However, I think this place passes itself off well. The employees are friendly and helpful, the books are somewhat organized in their respective sections and the cashiers are friendly and peppy. I can't imagine a better thing to have when you're within the madness of tourism season.And it is always tourism season here in sunny Santa Monica.This place is great if you're looking for a book ... or five, so give it a whirl!

When I go to the promenade I almost always visit the Barnes & Nobles. The store is pretty big (3 stories tall) and they have a good amount of people working their so its easy to find help. They have huge sections dedicated to different things like movies and cds to toys and games. This Barnes & Nobles is by far my favorite. I guess the only thing I would have to complain about is the  seating arrangement and the need for a restroom. It would be nice to have more seats available and being able to go to the restroom at will would be awesome and is pretty convenient. But if your in town and want to visit a solid book store with a variety of products then simply visit this location and catch up on any literature you'd like to read up on.

My review is for Gretchen. I was  looking for a book on ancestry. I was having trouble finding anyone  to help me and then I met Gretchen. She walked me to another floor and showed me the selection. She even mentioned there was another version in the Bargain Book section. She was so helpful and knows the stock very well. THANK YOU !

Two stars for the 10 cents per bag charge and no place to take a waz.If I took a picture of the bag, it is a fancy bag. Fancy and rich in material. Why the ten cent charge? Is it for the environment? Well, offer some type of flimsy environmentally safe bag or something to carry your purchase. The staff was not friendly and I did not need such a fancy bag. Just give me a cheapy bag or a tie like they used on Little House on the Prairie.I am not sure what the others think (Maggie C. Stacy and Peter), but I was appalled. At least three of us had to Waz!What's next? They didn't even have a restroom. They said "go to Banana Republic." Why are they so cheap and take it out on another business. What are they charging for next? Air?

I am so disappointed in this B & N. I have always had very good experiences. Today the sales girl, Nikki, working in the kids section was extremely rude. I was sitting on the ground near where my child was looking at books, which I do at every B & N I go to. She told me that I couldn't sit like that because children running through the store may trip over me. We had over $100 in books we had already picked out. She told me to move to another section. Sorry,  I'm not sitting far from my child. I am so disappointed.

This is a pretty large B&N store, 3 floors.  The Starbucks is right next door, if you need to use the bathroom, because there are none in this BN.I found a decent section for comic strip books but they only had one copy of each book I was looking for. Thank goodness last year's copy of Zits (Zombie Parents) was in good shape.  Sometimes, the books are so "thumbed thru" that they ought to sell it as a "used book" if you ask me.  Things are pretty neat in the store unlike the now deceased Borders, where items would be on the floor or left on chairs.

Three floors of book reading, lose track of time, that was a good story, I'll buy this book, I've got to come back, goodness.This is an excellent book store with plenty of room to roam.  Get away from the outside crowd for a while and find your inner love for the library.  Buy something to keep the in business and enjoy!Make sure to check out the clearance racks because there are books at great prices to be had.  Did I mention there are three floors?  This place is large and has just the right atmosphere for book browsing.  The higher up you go the quieter it gets.They have these great window sills that would be perfect for sitting and reading but they have them blocked off.  Not sure why.There's a Starbucks attached which always has a long line (same with the rest rooms on a busy weekend).And some reading slogans:Today a reader. Tomorrow a leaderRead, Lead, SucceedTake a look. Read a book!In order to succeed, you must read!Never judge a book by it's movieSail on a Sea of Books

Great selection and location.  Nice cool temperature.So, the books themselves are fantastic but...1.  No bathroom.  They closed the bathrooms years ago because of issues concerning the homeless and the place is just a nuisance to go to with young kids.  Hint:  Either go to the attached Starbucks (which is packed non-stop as the closest bathroom), or try P.F. Chang's down on Wilshire at 4th or Banana Republic across the Third Street Promenade.2.  No seats.  They have relatively recently removed most of the places to sit and consolidated to very few areas to sit and browse or read.  Then, if you sit on the floor, they have the B&N police come by to roust you all the while announcing that you are not allowed to sit in the aisles (in an irritatingly Orwellian Big Brother fashion).  In the last year, they took out the little table you could read books to your children to in the kids' area.  The lack of seating and bathrooms makes me resentful of actually buying anything here as I don't want to reward such customer non-service.  I appreciate that they are in a declining industry and margins are tight, but cutting back on the pleasantness of being able to dawdle and browse and experience the magic of new books (and re-experience the magic of old ones!) is the essence of the bookstore experience.  And, they fail at that.  Miserably.

I LOVE bookstores and can spend hours perusing books and magazines here. This location is great, it's at the end of the Promenade so it's a bit quieter and it has THREE levels so there are enough books to satisfy the bookworm inside of you! They have all the normal sections such as fiction, mystery, humor, kids, but I was surprised that their cooking section was so big! There were so many cookbooks it was a bit overwhelming but since I'm a foodie I really liked it. There is no restroom here (which is surprising) but there is one in the next door Starbucks so it's not a big deal. Staff was nice and I'm glad we stopped here!

Simply put, no.  I'll go to B&N in the Grove in a pinch (since I prefer independent bookstores), but I won't to to this one again.  It's big, busy, and I"m not sure there's anyone there other than the people who take your money.  There's not even a restroom, so don't plan on staying for hours enjoying their selection of titles (which is quite good and extends well beyond the expected).

Done!This happened a few months ago and it just happened again; this store charges for BAGS!   The SaMo law is limited to grocery, but B& N hates their customers, people willing to spend money in a brick and mortar at full retail.Amazon has free shipping and these bozos want a dime to carry home 5 full retail priced books... Queer thing is the chap behind the counter was COMPLETELY uninterested is saving what by all measures is a dying industry.BYE BYE

This bookstore takes up a corner location on 3rd street promenade. I love that it occupies 3 stories and has a cool palm tree decor like thing going on but there's no bathroom and security is tight. You can't lounge. Staff is friendly though. I did find pretty much everything I wanted but it's often crowded so I just wanted to get up and leave. Being that it takes up a prime piece of real estate, they attract a lot of the popular authors for book signing events that OC doesn't get. I'm tad jealous because there's no way I can make it to LA for all these events. :(Other than that, this is a chill spot.

Suzie Q's Fun Facts:With the last few Borders bookstores closing on September 18, 2011, Barnes & Noble now remains the last national bookstore chain (having also acquired Borders' trademarks upon dissolution). =~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~I remember a time when 3rd Street Promenade actually had TWO rival bookstore chains: Borders and B&N. B&N's location at the corner of Wilshire and 3rd always attracted more foot traffic, so I don't think many people miss Borders - at least the one in Santa Monica.Still, I wonder how B&N can possibly be profitable. The rent must be staggering for such a plum location, but the store is never particularly busy. And it always seems like social hour in the first floor periodicals section, which attracts loiterers, vagrants and lonely souls in droves. It's a wonder any magazines are left that aren't wrinkled, smudged or torn after all the handling. How can they possibly sell any?As others have noted, this is not the most welcoming bookstore. On my latest visit, an intimidating-looking security guard stared me down as I entered, though he did give a polite "hello." And when I went upstairs to meet friends in the childrens' book section, the clerk stationed there (peculiarly dressed in a sequined sparkly skirt and oxford shirt) pointedly asked us if she could help us find anything..... over and over again, as if to imply that we were unwelcome in the department. (In fact, one of our group was looking for a gift for her boyfriend's young son, so we belonged there as much as anyone). Even the Starbucks attached to the B&N isn't particularly inviting. There's some seating, but it's generally hard and inhospitable, as if the store is trying to say: "Sit if you must, but then quickly move along." I don't know why, but despite the stale feeling of this B&N outlet, I'm still glad it's there. There aren't many places on the Promenade to hang out with your friends that don't involve spending cash on either food or alcohol. This is one of the few.

i think it's essential to support bookstores whenever possible.  I had a recent large purchase I needed to make and I know I could have paid 20% less on line but if we don't support brick and mortar bookstores, they are all going to go away and that would be a disaster.  So I went to Barnes and Noble and paid a little more to buy what I needed there.  I felt I owed it to them as I browse in their store a lot.This Barnes and Noble is well run as far as Barnes and Noble goes. Everyone knows Santa Monica has a large homeless population but permanently closing the restrooms was a bad move. This should be corrected.  Other stores on the Promenade have restrooms.  B&N get with the program.This is the biggest bookstore in Santa Monica.  We need to support them and keep them in business. Go buy a couple of books there.  Let's make sure they stay in business.

I came to pick up a book that I ordered on line. I love going to the Promenade in Santa Monica. I was going to buy a couple of more books but wanted to check if my book was in. It started with the older man cashier didn't greet me. I told him I had a book to pick up. What's your last name..is all he told me. No hello or welcome to B&N. I told him and he returned.. do you want a bag...I said yes. He then threw the bag on the counter and didn't even put the book in the bag. Next he threw my receipt onto their counter. Talk about RUDE. I will return to B&N but not go to this Rude old cashier guy with the hat. Cashier needs better customer service because people may not return.  I still love to read books from B&N... :) next time I may just order on - line.

Was ready to pay $80.00 for two Blu-ray movies and decided not after being asked for 10 cents for a bag.  I am insulted that my purchase did not include a 10 cent bag.  Told by manager Frank that it was Santa Monica policy not Barnes and Noble.  So what.  Barnes and Noble could pick up the 10 cents just like most of the stores on the promenade and in Santa Monica.  I am NEVER returning to Barnes and Noble.UPDATE:  FOUND THE SAME BLU-RAY MOVIES FOR LESS AND FREE SHIPPING FROM ONLINE GIANT NAMED AFTER A RIVER IN SOUTH AMERICA.  WHY SHOP AT BARNES AND NOBLE??

I purchased over 10 books over the weekend and the cashier, man with long grey hair, was extremely rude. After I paid, he litarelly placed the bag on the counter and walked away - leaving me to bag my 13 books. This was so rude that I had to call the manager, Rick, the next day to let him know. He said without a name he couldn't know who I was talking about. I described the man to him,  time of day, and I even told him that I mentioned it to the security guard who apologized for the incident (although not his fault).  After I hung up I got a feeling that I was speaking to the cashier from the day before. I think I might just call the corporate office since I see from a post below that this has occurred before.

I always think of even the best Barnes & Noble stores as a bit of a lost opportunity - lost in the 90s, never refreshed - but this branch is just darn unfriendly. Unfriendly staff and security, no restrooms, one small line of maybe 10 chairs on the 3rd floor and everywhere else signs not to sit. Its not a place to wonder and discover books - and the Starbucks always has a huge line and feels remarkably soulless and unwelcoming.I'd expect more from these guys, especially in such a popular and busy location, in area where I'd guess there are more book lovers than average.

Do you know why your stores are going under while Amazon keeps growing? It's simple. Your store managers are the most valuable advertising Amazon could ever possibly ask for. I just left the 3rd Street Promenade location before I could buy five language books worth over $100 because the manager didn't want me there. He followed us around and when we sat to browse through the books we were about to buy, he sent a girl over to ask us to pretty much leave, except that's not how it was worded. She told us we weren't allowed to sit on the floor or along the wall and had to sit in a chair for our "own safety"....? We told her there weren't any chairs available because we had just looked. There were two that were taken on the first floor, two on the second, and six on the third floor. I told her they were all taken and even showed her, and she kept repeating what she had been told to say over and over. Pretty much the idea was to leave. We put all five books back without paying for them. Seeing as how we are adults in our late 30s, obviously there to actually buy something and not lounge around loitering, I checked out your Yelp reviews to see if this is common. Oh look, we're not alone! Apparently this store manager is like this all the time and actual customers are discouraged from purchasing anything and asked to clear out so he can get back to doing nothing. If you don't believe me, visit this location and see for yourself how unwelcome you are made to feel. I'm about to make my Amazon purchase now.

I'm an average "handyman" so I've been to a lot of different DIY stores in search of advice from the various "experts." I arrived at Nobel and couldn't have been more impressed by the customer service and knowledge pool from the staff. I had a pathetic picture of what I needed and also a piece of what broke off from the faucet. I thought I was going to have to DIY-engineer myself out of the problem, but the staff took one look, asked me 2 questions and I had the correct part. My only complaint: I would have liked to have burned some additional "work time" putting together my own system. Instead, I had a solution in less than 2 min. Gold Star.

Been sitting for 40 minutes. There has been one other person in front of me this whole time. All I need is damn 4 ft fiber glass pipe insulation! These people don't respect your time! It is a joke. The hr department has no idea what they are doing. Whoever runs the idiots at the front desk has no idea what they are doing and clearly the idiot above him doesn't know what he is doing. FFS noble. Get your act together, plenty of suppliers out there I will be using them in the future.

Took forever to fill order, not familiar with what we use in the trade, and generally rude staff.

TERRIBLE customer service. I was given a hard time when simply asking for a price on a water heater. Made a call on behalf of my contractor in order to speed things up a little..and the ass that answered the phone was rude simply because I wasn't the person with a gas licence. Told me to go to Home Depot if I wanted a water heater. I think I'll by all of my plumbing & heating supplies elsewhere from now on!

Rep took the time to research, explain and physically show the installed product even though they didn't have it in stock

The tech found my solution that home depot and home hardware had no clue about in less than 2 minutes! Thanks you Mr Caribbean man, you solved my plumbing headache!

We had an amazing shopping experience in Noble store yesterday, April 2, 2016. We called couple of plumbing stores and Noble had the most nicest greeting and question answering. When we got to the store, the people working there were helping us very professionally. Everybody was helping and very very nice. Customers went there were very very nice too due to the good service of the store. Eventually we got everything we need and we are very very satisfied with the services they provided. This is one of the best shopping experience for us!

Good God I hate this place. There's this demented little mousey dude up front who ALWAYS gives me attitude. I can't even remember his name. I think it's Dave? The little guy that looks like Mario's old gay uncle. The other guys are pretty cool but they work in the back mostly, and unless they're deaf, there's no excuse for why they can't hear him pull his crap. It's to the point now where I won't even go to Noble anymore, but if I absolutely HAVE to, I'll go to a different branch. Maybe if you're a plumber, they're better, but I'm in HVAC and sometimes the material can be called different names, or has to be described I.e. duct adapters, etc. I can go to ANY other distributor and describe a situation I need help with, and they'll recommend a solution based on the products they carry. This guy just gives me this look like he's going to puke if I don't know EXACTLY what they list whatever item as so he can just type it in, and of course I don't know they're names for things because I don't GO there. I hate it, I really do. Having to go there ruins my day, seriously. Every time, I think maybe this time will be different, maybe I'm just being a big puss and I need to relax, so I go in with a smile, and EVERY TIME, I walk out slamming my truck door closed, usually without anything purchased. I hate this place. Have some self respect as a company. Or at LEAST mystery shopper him

I was advised a wrong part and when I tried to exchange for the correct part the next day, I was told that all cash sales are final. I will never shop there again!

NOTE: They will not sell parts or anything to general public. They are strictly a wholesale company to plumbers.
