    I was on Facebook and somehow ended up on their fan page. When I saw the picture of one of their aisles I knew I had to check them out :) I've lived here since 1998, live 10 minutes away and never knew they were here.

    Anyway, I picked up an Arko shave stick. Man that stuff stinks. A bottle of Osage Rub (stinks as well, but the burn was awesome), a bottle of Clubman aftershave, a Palmolive shave stick and some Gillette blades. Unfortunately, they were out of the green Astra's which are my favorite.

    Lots of cool old school stuff there. DE razors, straight razors, brushes, bowls, Clubman, Jeris, Stephans, Lucky Tiger, Poraso,Master,Derby, Marvis tooth paste, Coonel Conk, lather machines and the list goes on.

    Their site is (tons of stuff not on their site) and they're located at basically Dunlop and 7th street.

    If I had one within 200 miles of me, I would run out to it tomorrow.

    I also like the fact if you wish to stock up for a prolonged siege, those gallon jugs of aftershave on the bottom row will come in mighty handy!

    I'm pretty sure that much VEG in one place constitutes a major OSHA violation.

    Reminds me of our semi-local mecca: Pasteur's Pharmacy (2 location) in Manhattan. Tho, they didn't have the gallon jugs as of the last time I was there.

    Did you ask them if they still keep the 5 gallon buckets of VEG in the back?

    Wait a minute......

    I recognize that picture!

    That's not a store, that's one of the shelves in Rollah's basement!

    My God! He really did win the lotto... :bounce015:

    What a nice place to shop. Too bad it is so far away from me, or maybe not!

    I think they keep them around to odorize the bathrooms. :rofl:

    'Round these parts, anything left of the Mississippi is all equally close, or equally far away. It's all the same.

    I wonder if they have a 2 lb stick of Arko.

    Now that would be something! Tho, I'd worry about having to close down the entire block with the.... uh.... aroma.

    Where are the Haz-Mat placards for this location? Isn't there supposed to be one on each side of the vehicle building?
