    review rating 5  Excellent customer service, something you don't get in the big box stores. Their pricing was equal to anything you would find online or at a big box. It's worth your time to visit and shop with this business.

    review rating 5  I go to the store quite often to check out their new gear. The staff is very friendly and informative. Their used gear is often priced better than sites like OfferUp and Amazon. Highly recommended.

    review rating 5  Phenomenal experience. I set out in search of a film camera and camera exchange seemed to be the place to go. I was greeted as soon as I walked in, and was quickly shown the film cameras. Between 3 of the employees they're was a ton a knowledge being shared with me about the cameras, film, how to do certain things with the film, how to process, etc... I walked out of there with a new camera and every question I had answered. Thank you guys for the great experience!
