Owners are insulting, merchandise overpriced- AVOID
By wintermute on 8/15/2008
I have been to Jan's a total of three times and will never go back. The last time I went in I was berated and insulted by an older woman who appears to be the owner. The fifteen minutes I spent browsing their admittedly large selection were filled with muttered insults and dirty looks and when presenting a debit card to pay for apprx twenty dollars worth of merchandise I was told "Ridiculous. For so little? Come on- let's see some cash." The attitude coupled with prices that are inflated almost double over MSRP make this store one of the worst shopping experiences I have had in almost ten years in the city. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. Hobby shops are supposed to be fun.
