On Saturday, one of our employees had a short discussion with a customer about which brand of jellybeans are better: Starburst or Jolly Rancher.
Two days later, this employee came to work to find two baggies of jelly beans covered in aluminum foil with a sticky note attached saying “Blind taste test. No peeking!”
Our customers are so thoughtful!

Band trivia of the week!
Man, what a find this place is. If you like movies, music, books, or video games…and like savings, then you owe it to yourself to check The Last Word out. It’s kind of like going to an indoor flea market, but in a much more comfortable environment.
The Last Word is located in a strip mall, and the parking lot is a nightmare to navigate. Once you make your way over to the store and enter it’s doors, all your dreams can come true. The place is bright and gigantic, and they have tons of DVDs and books, as well as a decent selection of CDs, vinyl albums, video games, board games and comic books. The store layout makes it pretty easy to navigate, and thankfully everything is pretty well organized and alphabatized, making looking for that one movie or your favorite author not such a harrowing task. I also loved that the employees weren’t wandering the aisles hassling you as you shopped, but were readily available at the checkout table if you had questions or needed some other help.
The other good thing about The Last Word are the prices. I don’t think I saw one item that I felt was overpriced, and most things seemed either right where they should be or ridiculously cheap. I picked up a couple of CDs that cost me either $1 or $4 each, and the missus got some vinyl records that were $3 (though she did also pick up an Elvis record for $9, but I guess the King comes with his price.) I perused the video games and while the selection wasn’t anything super fantastic, the prices were right where they should be and definitely puts Game Stop and other used video game retailers to shame. The other nifty video game aspect was that they had a solid selection of older consoles. If I had an extra $50 to blow I might have went for that old school NES!!!
The reason the prices are so cheap is because most (if not everything) they sell is used/ second-hand. You can waltz in there Tuesday through Sunday and sell off your old crud you have cluttering up your house. We stopped in at the window first thing and dropped off a box of old books and then went browsing while they processed our order. When it was done we went back, accepted the prices they gave us (which I felt were pretty fair) and then used that credit to pick up some new stuff (if you want they will pay you in cash, but it won’t be as much.) They open a “customer account” for you so any credit you have but don’t use up will be sitting there waiting for your next visit. My only complaint was that the credit couldn’t be used for video games, otherwise the whole deal is very well worth the time.
The Last Word is a great concept for a store. You go in, drop a ton of your old junk off, and use the credit to get newer junk to fill your home with. The ease of unpressured shopping for cool stuff at cheap prices makes this place totally worth the visit. So go do some spring cleaning around your home, sell off that junk and treat yourself to that book or DVD you’ve always wanted.
Just so you know, you can purchase video games with PREMIUM store credit. Premium store credit is awarded whenever you sell your video games, iPods, calculators, and consoles to us.
