product is featured for a sale price which can result in some great
values for the customer. Endless Yard Sale
is located in the same shopping center, on the opposite end. A
percentage of the proceeds from this store goes to Alzheimer's
charities. This store also has a nice selection and very reasonable
prices. This store is always staffed with knowledgeable and helpful
employees making it a great place to shop.
