Even though I no longer have a Borders close-by since my move to a small beach town in Delaware in 2008, I still am very saddened by the news of Borders' demise.  When I lived in Alexandria, …

The Children's Place
This company has the worst return/exchange policy of any children's store I know. Their policy states items must have "tags attached" in order to return or exchange them. I can understand that policy …

Sunday Sales
It is a subject that I am passionate about and the book I have always wanted to write. I suspect that the initial reaction of most folks who read this piece will be to vehemently disagree with my position. …

B&H Photo Video Pro Audio
I love B&H! Over the last year or so, they've become part of every major electronic purchase I've made. They're seriously a sleeper. I first found/noticed them after researching a pair …
reviewed Bed Bath & Beyond. December 31, 2010
I'm not a big fan of Bed, Bath & Beyond. Other than the cameo that it had in the movie Click, I never really see myself going in there...for anything. In a secret santa exchange last week, my …
