Your Hobby Place: what do users think?


Jose de la Cruz: They have a small-ish but well selected set of board games. They have all the DnD stuff you'd need as far as dice and books. They also have a huge selection of miniatures for games like Warhammer and a few other games (I don't really know about those). They have play tables so that you can go in whenever and play the games you buy / bring in.

Tristan Stevens-King: Very friendly and helpful staff, good selection of Games workshop products, several other historical wargames, Board games, and several tables for playing games at. Haven't gone to any of the game events they'll be having, but excited to try getting in some Kill team or 40k there soon.

Whistle Stop Toy & Hobby: what do users think?


Rex Grigg: Definitely a gem of a tiny toy shop. Just picked up snow sleds from here, as promised by the owner who had run out the previous week & said come back next week.

Christopher Allen: I purchased our family's first train set at Whistle Stop. The store is small but packed with great toys, games, puzzles, train sets & parts, models, etc. The owner and the other employee I interacted with were both helpful and friendly. Shopping here was more enjoyable than at a big box store or an internet retailer, and I look forward to patronizing this Whistle Stop in the future!

Brian Collins: This must be the ONLY toy/hobby shop I'd like to give business to. The owner is always there and knowledgeable of what's in stock and not. He is of the age most are used to dealing with when building from scratch, including balsa planes from a plank of semi-precut sheets and transform it into a 3D model you CAN build and fly. Either by rubber band or glow motor. Stop and take a look, then simply ASK questions. My best guess is that he'll have an answer or able to obtain.

Sophocles Grafas: The owner is amazing and helped me with a craft project by supplying me with the tools in shop but also helped me order materials I needed. Love the shop and will be using this as my go to location for any hobby needs.

Yvonne Doerre: Do not waste your time or money here. I bought a $100 RC car from them. Defective. Worked for less than 24 hours. When I called asking to return it, was greeted with condescension and hostility. Stay away.

Erik Laubacher: The owner is awesome and their selection is great. I've bought some really nice model rockets, paints and train scenery their. Number on place in DC I've been to if you are into trains and/or scenery.

Stacey Grigsby: I would give them zero stars if possible. I've gone there two or three times over the past couple years. I was never particularly pleased with the selection or service but stopped there because it is in my neighborhood. To say they are unfriendly is an understatement. The owners have yelled loudly at my daughter who is a child of color and acted in the most unprofessional manner I've seen as a consumer and parent. In fact, the way the owner spoke to my children betrayed a lack of professionalism and also humanity. In our times, this type of treatment of children and those of color is unacceptable. This is clearly an establishment that is well past its prime and perhaps stuck in some prior era. I would encourage others to avoid the store and spend their money elsewhere. I'm all for investing in a local establishment but there is no excuse for unprofessionalism. The item in question were pieces of candy not radio-controlled toys. I expect better from a place that expects to attract people's business. Completely unacceptable in my book.
Response: Ms. Grisby - We apologize for your experience in our store, and appreciate your review, despite your unhappiness. It is always our intention to treat families, and children, with courtesy, kindness, and respect. We also expect that families remain aware that we are a small, locally-owned store, and not a big chain with huge budgets to replace broken, mishandled and destroyed merchandise. We are sorry that you have chosen to no longer frequent our store. Our best to you in the future. Frank Kozuch, Owner 703-549-4912

TwistaFragz: Owner is very helpful and knows his product. I just started building Gundam units and all the basic tools that are needed are available. If you are looking for something in particular the owner will check to see if he can get it for you.

Robert Brackens: Would not stand by their products. I bought a HO Rail Power 1300 transformer last Spring (2018) it wasn’t in the box but look brand new and was half price at $25.00. Now I only set up a train during Christmas so at the time of purchase I just put it away for Christmas time. Well its Christmas time and I go about setting everything up and the transformer didn’t work so I put a meter to the transformer and it showed no output to the rails. No worries, I’ll take it back to my only local favorite hobby shop where they will recognize my face and explain the situation and get some credit towards another transformer and maybe pick up some other stuff that I think I need and also last minutes gifts. Well I was told tough luck you had it for six months you need to call the manufacturer. I was shocked, I was left thinking WOW do remember how much money I spend here in the past when I could have easily type my dollars into Amazon Prime. In the past I bought a Air Soft gun at Whistle Stop that was completed junk but didn’t say anything when I return to be a loyal customer and support our local hobby shop. Well this a sad day because if Whistle Stop hobby keeps this up they will not be around for next years Christmas. I just hope they don’t rip the guy off that came in when I was leavings who is looking for a simple train set for his son. It was all I could do to not say no don’t buy go to Amazon at least they refund your money.
Response: Mr. Bracken - Thank you for your feedback. As a family-owned, brick and mortar store, we are in a NO WIN situation against huge retailers like Amazon. We are familiar with the used item that you purchased 6 months ago, and stand by the fact that it was in good working order at the time of purchase. We are unaware of how the item has been used or treated since. We invite you to return to discuss this item with the store owner to explore an acceptable resolution. We make every possible effort to provide the highest level of customer service, and we are sorry that we fell short of the mark at this opportunity. We hope you will give us another chance to meet your needs and to be a partner in building holiday memories of a train under the Christmas tree for your family.

Doug Nitti: Small ..intimate..HO scale inventory isnt massive but the Owner is engaging and knowledgeable. Hes willing to order whatever you need and is a straight shooter.

Auto Hobby Shop: what do users think?


Kyle Salone: Great place to get some basic maintenance done with plenty of space. It doesn't have a lift which was bummer but has ramps, Jack's amd jack stands. Plenty of tools to most jobs, no impact gun tho so bring your own if you got one. PLEASE open more than 1 day a week and keep this shop around as long as possible.

Lonnie: Critical: QualityThis cold be a great DYI garage if they hire someone with experience like me to run the place, I like working on my car, I do all the work my self. please open this place 3 days a week Tuesday Thursday and SaturdayService: Oil change

Andrew Shealy: You can get work done on your car as well as rent bays to do your own work. If having work done they can help tell you what you need since you have to provide your own parts. However because I went to an auto store and they told me which alternator I needed and went to the hobby shop, the total was $210 (135 part and 75 labor) versus the $490 that the Firestone at the shoppette Saud it would cost. Go inside and check it out. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and doesn't try to up-sell you things.

Gregory Fiordalisi: This place is the best auto hobby shop you will ever go to You dont need to sign tools in and out, you dont need to take a class to use the lifts, everyone is super friendly and ready to help you out, every bay has anaair tool hook up, and the mechanic Wayne will always give you advice on problems. There is not enough good things to say about this place. I have been coming here for 6+ months now and I've made friends and learned a lot. I have no idea how this place has got less than a 4 star rating. Im sure its just people who have never been to other auto hobby shops and dont know how good they had it here. This place is a god send. 5 stars ALL DAY.

Shiner Bock: Nothing against the staff or employees, but the shop is minimally useful. I think the whole place has only two high lift racks, and someone is usually there bright and early to use it for the whole day. I won't waste my time anymore.

Nick: What are the true hours of this place? I tried the hours posted online and even spoke someone on the phone and they said Tuesdays just for me to drive an hour and no one be there. Left messages for an explanation and have been ghosted since bad service.

Juan: The worst military Base hobby shop I have been to in regards to cleanliness. The floors were unsafe, slippery and dirty. The restroom was no better. Other bases keep your license until they ensure you have cleaned up after yourself. I will not be returning.

Larry Dumlao: The shop itself is a bit filthy, but the tools are well cared for and they seem to have everything you would need. Bonus that there is a small store where you can buy basic stuff. While they do have frame lifts, there are only 2-Post lifts. :(

Justin Phillips (J83): Useless, can't even do a simple tire swap without making an appointment because the mechanic that works there is the only one allowed to touch the machines. Liability blah blah reasons. Write up a waiver to sign and let me mount and balance my tires. Such a PITA....

raynorlbuckley: This is a review for the car wash next door to the Auto Hobby Shop. 2nd lane from the left did not work properly. Accepted quarters but did not recognize full amount was paid. Unable to get a refund.

Hobby Lobby: what do users think?


Hilda Kroll: I'm not a hobbyist, but decided to check out the store anyway. I have some vases that can benefit from some pretty artificial flowers and the selection here is impressive. My favorite framing store closed and this would be a convenient place to bring pictures that need framing in the future. A nice place to find things you didn't know you needed. Going through the checkout line(s), however, is unnecessarily challenging. Someone needs to figure it out and let people know where to stand.

Michelle Garcia: Well organized. They have a decent amount of stock at the moment, you can tell things are spread out to keep spaces from looking barren. This is the first hobby lobby I've been to that the staff wasn't overly friendly. That's up to you if you like it or not. I'm used to every employee being friendly and recognizing you if you pass them by. I love hobby lobby discounts it helps you get crafting for a decent price.

Aztecmami217: This place is amazing! It is the best crafting store I have ever seen. I was here two hours and I did not finish looking at everything they have. They also have seasonal discounts. The employees are very helpful and polite. The store is super clean and organized, and if you can think it, they have it!

Audrey Lester: Blind customer: hobby lobby is accessed by utilizing indoor escalators to arrive at their entry. Once a top, shopper is greeted by a staff person then able to navigate store. I’ve made a right towards the cashiers to request staff assistance. I have visited this establishment multiple times. Most recently to have my degrees framed. Per usual, staff were kind and professional. I have been escorted through the store by staff, assisted in getting fabrics cut, and purchasing numerous craft items. Each time has been a pleasant experience at this location.

Ginger “Ging” molly: Want to get Accused of stealing this is the place. Legit I went on a date and they accused me of stealing or walking out the store with unpaid merchandise the manager. Was very verbal and happy to admit not only do her staff not know company policies on return, the site doesn't exist for discounts or coupons. Oh and if you are a white customer you will be def treated with respect not the black people if your return ticket is over 200 why would a person returning crafting items be stealing ... anyway worse experience micheals here I come also lgbt not friendly

John Knippenberg: This place has everything! If you need home decorations, items for craft projects, dried/silk flowers, fasteners, fabric paint, etc. this is you one stop shopping place. Seasonal and holiday decorations, a great assortment. Very spacious and we'll organized, very friendly and knowledgeable staff too. 😉👍

S.M. Barnes: Very clean, organized aisles. Lots of floral selections for creative minds. I did not see what I needed, so I left, plus it was closing and I did not want to belabor the staff.

Giselle Colon: I am in love with this place! The service is amazing. Everyone who works there is always happy to help. They have a huge selection to choose from. I never have a hard time finding what I need. Everything is organized and clean in the store. There are always sales going on. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is looking for supplies for a new project or if you want to spice things up in your home.

Phillip P.: This is a great, well stocked Hobby Lobby. Great deals per usual. Big parking lot. Friendly staff. Need a few more roaming associates to help customers find hard to find items. A store map would be helpful as well. Getting out the parking lot is about impossible because of location.

Felipe Umana: This store is new in this area, so I came to check it out this store and I can tell you i never seen 👀 a store like this its so big, they have everything for decorating so clean organized and the people who work there are very nice too👌 lol😆

Huzzah Hobbies: what do users think?


Justin Majerle: Went to Huzzah for the first time this past weekend. Just wanted to check it out as I was in the area and had heard a lot about it. I was truly impressed almost immediately. I remember the old gamer shop model, small, dingy, and unorganized….Huzzah is the complete opposite of what was the industry standard. Upon entering I immediately took note of how clean and organized the place is. I was greeted three times in the first minute or two which is nearly unheard of in this day and age of retail. The place is huge and well laid out. There is a large area for gaming but it is on one side of the store, making it easy to navigate the retail side without having to squeeze by gaming tables. They have just about everything imaginable in the gaming genre from tabletop miniatures to board games. I really enjoyed the store and will definitely be back!
Response: Justin, Thank you for taking the time to write a very nice review. We really appreciate your business and are glad that you enjoyed your visit and the people at Huzzah. We hope to see you more often and please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

hans lynch: Huzzah Hobbies is perhaps the best hobby store I have ever been to and I've been to a fair number including Games Workshop flagship store in London. Well stocked with a vast array of product lines. Best of all has a number of large gaming areas for both card and miniature games.
Response: Hans, Thank you for the five star review. We really appreciate your business and are glad that you enjoyed your visit. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Justin Cozzi: This place is amazing. Friendly staff and so much to choose from. I highly recommend for any gaming or modeling enthusiasts.Update from last post. The place is still amazing and they have vintage Gundam. I love it. Keep up the great work guys.
Response: Justin, Thank you for the five stars! We really appreciate your business and are glad that you enjoyed your visit and the people at Huzzah. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Tony McCurry: This was one of the most, if not the most, pleasant game stores I’ve ever been too. The more I looked around the more I discovered more of its charm. The staff was very friendly as well. I’m very envious of anyone who gets to go to this store on a regular basis.
Response: Tony, Thank you for the very nice review. We really appreciate your business and are glad that you enjoyed your visit. We look forward to having you back and please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Jo Nemo: Best store in the greater DC area for board games and hobby stuff. They have *every* brand of paint, tons of specialized tools, both standard gaming stuff (MTG, Warhammer) and harder to find fare (Malifaux, INFINITY, Marvel, Historical Wargaming) as well as GunPla I only wish it were closer to my home. I'd be here daily.
Response: Jo, Thank you for the nice review. We really appreciate your business and are glad you have what you are looking for. You can always move closer to us. ;-). Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Michelle Thomas: Great gaming store, with awesome people. They have one of the best mini, terrain, and dnd accessory collections I've seen in any of the other local stores.
Response: Michelle, Thank you for the five stars! We really appreciate your business and are glad that you enjoy our selection. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Sebastian C: Awesome "nerd" store! Highly recommend for anyone looking for TCG or tabletop games! Plenty of tables in the back
Response: Sebastian, Thank you for the nice review. We really appreciate your business. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Erick Cifuentes: Clean store, always has product, events are organized and employees are always helpfull. Glad that I live a bit far from this store so I don't spend all my money here!
Response: Eric, Thank you for the nice review. We really appreciate your business and are glad you are close enough you come once in a while.. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Timothy Medric: Why bother supporting your LGS if the people working tell you they're not going to bother looking for a product? Edit following owner response: While I do appreciate you saying this, if you look at the recent reviews on here it all is the same - poor customer service. Your store is one that is decent and a fun atmosphere in the past when I've played there, but somewhere along the way your staff just leave much to be desired. I will say that there is one guy I've seen there working in the past, I think he may be a manager, I've always had incredible interactions with him, but that's about it.
Response: Timothy, We are very sorry you had a bad experience at Huzzah. I would be more than happy to discuss what happened and assist you in finding a product.

John Seaton: I love the staff and the community at Huzzah. The staff does a really great job of taking time to listen to and answer questions for my children. They carry everything we are interested in and the staff is ready to answer questions about everything. We meet friendly people every time we visit. The facility is spacious, clean, and bright.
Response: John, Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We really appreciate your business and are glad that you and your kids enjoy your visits and the people at Huzzah. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

The Hobbies Shop: what do users think?


Sherri Agee: Amazing shop. The owner was so helpful with my son and went out of her way to make sure he got the RC car he wants and any repairs taken car of. I HIGHLY recommend!
Response: Thank you

Michael Ward: Great little store, a true hobbyists place! The owner was incredibly nice, other customers friendly and truly enthusiasts which you dont find in the big box hobby stores. If you have a young one that you want to get started in the modeling, rc world, this is the place to do it!!!! As an adult walking in there, i felt like a kid again.
Response: Thank you! Hope you guy enjoy playing the new game also along with your rc.

Warren Gray: Larry and Beth are the best. They help understand the products and help with my trucks

Andrew Gervais: The very knowledgeable gentleman at the desk didn't hesitate to answer all of my questions about an rc car for my son even though he could tell I wasn't prepared to buy anything. He was very helpful and now I have a much better idea of what to look for. I will definitely buy from here instead of online once my son and I do a little more research and pick out the model he wants. Their prices are the same or better than anywhere online and they can answer questions if you're a noob like us.
Response: Thank you

IEatOut Often: On average, I have purchased one plastic model a month from this store for the last 20 months. For beginners, I highly recommend their selection of molded-in-color Revell Junior kits because these kits bolt together with large plastic bolts, and polystyrene cement is not needed. They also can sell you a mini-file (that looks like a metal fingernail file) to safely remove a little bit of excess plastic from the occasional piece that is slightly over-sized. From this product-line (of various cars and so forth), the Jeep Wrangler (kit 451019) has some of the most fragile pieces; therefore, I recommend the ambulance, police sport utility vehicle, or Disney "Cars" movie vehicles (for example, Jackson Storm or Cruz Ramirez) instead. A large plastic screw-driver is included in each of these kits. They also sell many different picture-puzzles. It has been a pleasure doing business with them.
Response: Thank you!

Lauri Sweeny: Amazingly helpful! They have so much product and knowledge. Great customer service. We drove 45 minutes to get there but it was totally worthwhile.
Response: Thank you!!

Marion C: Super great service, very friendly and knowledgeable. Went the extra mile to help us fix our car. Highly recommend for all of your hobby rc needs.
Response: Thank you

Susan K: Super fun store that seems to have everything! I was looking for paints and found what I needed bit it seemed very well stocked with lots of different and current trends including a 3D printer. Absolutely fascinating. The owners were friendly and answered all my questions about things I was curious about and the added bonus was the store mascot, their pet dog who is also super friendly and helpful! Definitely why we shop local around here whenever possible. You don't get this kind of service elsewhere. Price was great.
Response: Thank you

Tayte Anne: So much to choose from. My kids always have to pick something out. The legos inventory is awesome. Some from my favorite video game, overwatch. Outdoor activities to keep the kids entertained through quarantine and this long summer. Great place. Check it out even to look at all the cool models.
Response: Thank you

Mary Chrisman: I love The Hobbies Shop. They have a great selection, decent prices and the owners are very informative and helpful. The store looks small but they use every bit of space. They're also willing to get anything you need and are always willing to make recommendations. Let's not forget they're awesome dog! Downtown Charles Town needed this - glad they're here!
Response: Thank you, and Jughead Thanks you!

Child's Play Toys & Books: what do users think?


Scott Selliers: While in town for my wife’s work, my son and I have been out exploring the city. We have never been much for buying tchotchkes as souvenirs, yet few things can bring back the memories of travel like a material thing found along the way. After visiting the gift shop at the National Aquarium in Baltimore and seeing the crummy toy offerings, I told my son we’d find a real toy store - and Child’s Play Toys & Books is definitely that! We were greeted and assisted by passionate toy aficionados - professional retailers. Take your time when you visit this store - there’s a ton to see. Now my son has a quality toy that will bring back memories of our DC trip. We also had a puzzle gift wrapped for free at the counter as a gift for my father-in-law for watching our animals - this was the perfect store for us today! (You know you’re dealing with a serious store when they have an entire shelf dedicated to the best board game ever made - Catan!)
Response: You made our day! Thank you so much for visiting! We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to town.

beyondTabu: Lots of options. Shelves were sparse which is expected as it’s Christmas time. Staff were friendly and helpful. They have wrapping at the back of the store for purchases.
Response: We've been hit by the supply chain issues, too, unfortunately. Thank you for the kind words!

Martin Lucero: What an awesome story, great toys and games for people of all ages. The store is far bigger than you might first realize and they are incredibly well stocked. The staff are passionate and helpful. They were able to discuss Legos in detail with my seven year old son and help me find the perfect board game based on my vague requirements. On top of all that, the prices are very reasonable.

Martha Coe: Best toy shop in the district. You can always find something good for a present.
Response: Thank you, Martha! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Lisa Lavelle: This is the best toy store ever! Love the helpful staff, they always have great recommendations and they are incredibly knowledgeable about the products. Wonderful selection of toys, games, and books.
Response: Thank you so much, Lisa! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Christabelle Cruz: The best toy and gift store ever! I’ve come here multiple times and every time, a worker asks if they can help. I tell them the ages of the children I’m shopping for as well as the interests, and they always direct me to the perfect options and gift. They are super knowledgeable and helpful! Always a positive and happy shopping experience at Child’s Play!
Response: Yay! We're so glad you've had great experiences. We appreciate your business and your kind words!

Leif Engler: Amazing place to buy toys, especially legos and figurines. There is also a small book area in the back aswell. Would recommend.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Walt Nicholson: This is one of the best toy stores I’ve come across in years. If you have a child who needs a toy - it’s here. All ages, abilities and interests. Lots of fun educational toys as well as sheer joy. Big Lego section, model rockets and tons for little ones. The staff were super friendly and made perfect recommendations. Will definitely be back for birthday presents to come!
Response: Yay! Thanks for the kind words!

Christina Valentiner: This place is magical. I want to buy everything for my kid but I dont- they have a huge selection and the staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgable.
Response: Thank you, Christina! We appreciate you taking the time to write such a lovely review!

Matthew Henry: What an incredible surprise. This place is awesome. Needed to buy some holiday gifts, walked in and was met with can I help you. Said, yes, and had wonderful choices for a 1 year old and six year old. For kids of all ages, this is the place!
Response: Thanks for shopping with us and for the awesome review! We can't wait to see you again!

Andrea M. Watling: This is a cute little store that had some cool nautical memorabilia and souvenirs. It's located right inside of the Navy Museum so it's very convenient.

Michael Pukish: A little gem of a museum right on base at the Navy Yard. Not necessarily a comprehensive collection of all things Navy, but definitely a great combination of technical, political, and human history components.

Jerry Miranda: Wonderful museum. Really well done. A must visit if in DC. CAC required for base access. Bring the kids.

Jonathan Haag: Wish it was open on the weekend.

Shirley Tran: i went to go visit the navy yard and walked through their gift shop. it has a lot of neat things to see and some good small gifts to buy.

Wayne Morris: Excellent selection of Navy items.

Vicki Ware: It was fabulous highly recommended.

Colin Taylor: If you can stand the half hour vetting procedure this really is an underwhelming experience

Leica Store Washington DC: what do users think?


Haresh Mehta: The store without a doubt lives up to the Leica standard. No rush rush sales pressure, no up-selling, just a fantastic educated opinion from Leica Ambassadors. I met with Christopher, he helped me trade in my visoflex and get the new one, completed the paperwork for the service of my m10R, while I enjoyed browsing through their gallery and books. Happy to buy from here and revisit.

C Davidson: Excellent shows and small gallery. Knowledgeable sales rep and they understand the Leica mystique. Helped a friend buy an M10 here with a 50 Summicron and used 28 Elmarit. The Elmarit looked brand new.

Gary Mintz: I bough a Q2M from this store - paying a premium price in the assumption that they would provide premium customer support. Wrong. Even though I was advised to call in with any questions, two days ago I was blown off by the individual who answered the phone. Not only was he "not knowledgeable," but he did not even take the time to understand my question and the advice he gave was counter productive. Hugely disappointing to say the least. Next time I will buy from Amazon or BandH and use online forums for help when needed. In fact, I got better advice from the FACEBOOK Q2M use group. Paying list price at the Leica store in DC was a waste of money.
Response: Hello Mr. Mintz, I apologize if you were not helped adequately. We strive to give the best customer service. If we do not know the answer to your question, we reach out to our product specialists or our tech advisors in our Corporate facility. Please feel to let us know if you have any questions about the camera and we will find out the answer for you.

jamari jay: came in to get some 35mm film. they had a good selection of film at reasonable prices (2 rolls of Portra 160 for ~$21) and they had a great selection of new and used cameras that i couldn't afford even if i dreamed about it the people working there are awesome as they're super duper helpful and friendly. they even invited to demo some of their cameras and their insane bincoulars! would recommend

Prakash Narayan: I have been savoring the joys of this store for many years now. Werner Paul and his team are superb -- extremely solicitous, considerate and informative, and professionals through and through. Any matter concerning my precious Leica camera or lens was considered and addressed swiftly and thoroughly -- to my complete satisfaction. A photographer could not ask for more, and I remain grateful.

Richard Burg: A great store with great products and a superb staff. Each member of the staff is an accomplished photographer who willingly shares knowledge and technique. Particularly recommended is the individual photography classes offered by David Bickley.

Joe Wehry: If Leica DC were a lens, they'd be a Noctilux. Stellar customer service.

Francisco Lovko: The staff was amazing, their customer service was impeccable and they were great ambassadors for the brand! They were very knowledgeable about their products and photography in general. We had a great conversation about digital and analog photography.

Jim Reed: Both in terms of the ambience of the store and the expertise and courteousness of the staff, the Leica Store DC fits the Leica "brand." Top notch in every respect. Whether or not you're in the market for a Leica, if you're interested in photography at its finest, it's worth stopping in here.

Marcos Rego: I went in just to window shop. The two working behind the desk there were beyond helpful with my questions, so much so that I ended up buying a strap for my M3 that I had just bought (that they also generously checked out for me). It was an absolute pleasure.

Target: what do users think?


Chaturbhuj bhojwani: Very nice and clean store parking available in the basement, Only problem always low on the food inventor and produce and grocery.

Cliodhna MacFadden: We purchased the Element 65” TV, and after 3 days the backlight broke. We tried everything to fix it. Without a box or receipt in hand, we brought it back to see what may be possible to do. Associates TK, Nicole S, and Anton were able to use the debit card used to purchase to look up my receipt to get our return sorted. We so appreciate them going truly above and beyond to show us their compassion and excellent customer service.

Jasmine Thomas: Mobile Tech Has A Rude Raspy Voice Lady Working There. Ms.Kathy Is Extremely Unprofessional & Doesn’t Know What She Is Talking About. She Lied & Told Me That An AT&T Phone Was Unlocked. The Phone Wasn’t Unlocked & I Was Trapped In A Contract. I Explained To Her That I Wanted A Unlocked Phone & She Insisted On Telling Me The Phone I Bought Full Price Was Unlocked, Yet I’m Getting Stuff In My Email Saying I Have A Contract That I Have To Pay Off My Phone. Her Attitude Is Stank & She Never Has Her Mask Up On Her Face. Columbia Heights Target Do Better, Her and Her Unprofessional Ways Are Bringing Your Company Down Tremendously. I Will Be Reaching Out To Corporate!

Shayna Deverman: Dirty, unorganized, extremely low stock on everything. Items thrown everywhere, picked over. Shoe isle was a disgrace. Nice they have an “Ulta”, but very limited items. Took me several minutes to figure out where body wash was. Haircare, travel, makeup is all grouped together in the front/middle-like typical but body wash/deodorant was clear on the end of the store. Terrible flow. All that looking and they had very limited washes! Men’s selection had more to choose from. Went in there with a very basic list and got one thing on it… my nearest Walgreens was more helpful…disappointing since I love me a Target trip. I won’t be back to this one.

Kaila Gilbert: Good store, could benefit from more helpful signage 😂 idk throw a digital map on the wall or something. but even though I got vertigo/whiplash/confused trying to find a suitcase (they're on the 2nd floor in the wayback) no complaints and the people are good. Most people do self checkout bc line passes fast, so don't be intimidated if it's long. Idk choose your adventure. Shoe section looks a litttle crazy in the afternoons, but that's consistent with the behaviors/type of people who live here lmao. Moving too fast, not putting stuff back, lowkey entitled ahaha

Adah Deveaux: This review is for the starbucks within target. My drinks were great but a little of a wait. The actual target was customary.

Thomas Nali: NO PARKING VALIDATION Poor inventory. This is on a regular old Monday. I asked for the product I was looking for, they checked in the back, and said it was too hard to get to and another employee would work on it, but they don’t know how long it will be. This was at almost noon. Look at how few dairy products are on the shelf. Staff continued to prove unhelpful. I asked four different employees where a type of product was and they each told me to find someone who worked in that dept. OR they just told me they “probably don’t have it” WITHOUT even looking or bothering to find where it should be!! They tried to walk off but I said I am not satisfied until we find the shelf where it should be, and I’ve been looking for fifteen minutes. Took all of that to get some help finding one little thing.

Ted Socha: Ever since this Target added self-checkout, they've relied solely on it. At most, they open only one regular checkout line if self-checkout gets long. Better off going to the CVS across the street. 10/7/19 update: this place either needs to solve their self-checkout problem or open up more than one regular cash register

Sade Wilson: I was shopping today at the Washington D.C target store and was purchasing gift for my family I found some nice things and for a really good price. I went to check out and the items were ringing up different from what the price was upstairs I explained to the cashier he called for a manager. The manager name tiffany came and refuse to change the price the for two of the items but change it for the other too items. I continue checking out because I didn’t want to wait to long after I was done checking out I went upstairs to take pictures to show the manger she still refuse and walk away.

Donna Walker: Buyers we aware the prices in Target are going up every week and its terrible and make sure you know the prices of your items because the shelf price and the register price can be different at times. Security was following me for no reason so I had t let him know you are following the wrong person. I catch more people stealing at Target and I do not work there. Also, some of the employees are so rude. I will be recording my conversations with the employees when I need to ask for help as proof of how rude some of them can be.

The Frame Mender While-U-Wait Eyeglass Repairs: what do users think?


The Mecca: I love the end results. My glasses were broken In the middle and I thought I would never get to wear them again until I went to frame menders here on 17th Street Nw. Homeboy Justin looked out! He was professional, welcoming and understood the assignment! I think he might have been a carpenter in his past life because my glasses looked brand new, fixed right and lenses cleaned. S/O to Justin - you did good frame menders on hiring him

George Zoto: I rarely post negative reviews for a place but this one was truly worth it. First of all you come in and ring the bell and even though a guy behind the wall says be there in a minute, 10 mins later you're still waiting for someone to talk to. I couldn't wait longer, had to leave and come back another day. Secondly this place is ridiculously expensive for a titanium frame repair ($70). I asked if they could also open up my frame on another glass and they said just to touch a 2nd pair of glasses they charge you $25. Daylight robbery and awful customer service...

Nia Spencer: I had a great experience here. The arm was re-attached to my glasses for $45 plus a $6 same day fee and for $51 my several hundred dollars frames were good as new! Wish I'd come in sooner.

Sandy Rokh: Super fast and respectful reasonable price compared to places I’ve seen in other states. I came in at 11 they had them done in 50 minutes. Really liked their work on my favorite pair of glasses.

Marie Cohen: Fantastic experience with mail-in service. They laser welded a broken hinge so that the temple is able to open and close fully, but will no longer "spring" to the side. All at a cost of $55 with a lifetime guarantee. The whole process took about 9 days from the time I contacted them for an estimate. Great business!

Andrea SW: My son broke the hinge off one of the arms of his glasses. I took the superglued, electrical taped mess to the nice gentleman at The Frame Mender and he had it fixed in less than a half hour! $66 for same day repair. Photos are post repair.

T F: My Dad’s glasses broke in half, due to Covid and him living in a long term care facility , it’s impossible for me to schedule him for an eye exam and new glasses. I sent Frame Menders a photo, they responded within 3 hours with a price quote. I shipped the glasses to them the next day and within a week I received them back! Excellent customer service and I highly recommend.

Dee: FANTASTIC, FAST ! Traveling - opened my prescription sunglass case and the arm fell off (no screw in sight). Stopped by on Sunday morning and the repair was done in less than 10 mins. I was able to enjoy the rest of the week, driving safely with my rx sunglasses and seeing the sights.

cyrus benson: Don’t do it! When I walked in the customer service technician was uninterested. I explained my situation and then he made a recommendation with no engagement. I graciously & politely said “no thank you” with a smile and engagement. I went across town and got my glasses fixed 😊 for less than 1/20 of his recommended fix. No customer skills and engagement.... No business from me. 😉

keyon Pannell: Wish I can give them 0 stars! At first i believed it would be a smooth service, especially for 90$. But it wasn't that way at all. To start the manager insisted that whoever was working told me that the process would bring discoloration to my glasses. I know for a fact he didn't because if that was the case i would have invested an extra 30$ for a brand new pair. They said its listed on the receipt, I cant say if it is or inst because i misplaced my receipt. But either way you have to pay to get a receipt.... So you wouldn't find out until after the money is dished out. So after discovering my glasses had been turned brown, when originally being gold. I tried to call and speak with the manager... who became frustrated and didn't know how to handle the situation at all. So he then hung up. I called back multiple times and was placed on hold every time for 15-20 minutes each time! The customer service was terrible and they messed up my glasses without even telling me. DON'T GO! Maybe another location has better service. But save your money and time! Please! I never write reviews but after experiencing service this rude and terrible it was a must!

Kramers: what do users think?


Jon and Amanda Lewis: Great little bookshop near Dupont Circle. They have a wide selection of titles & subjects and an attached cafe and restaurant. I found some wonderful vintage looking postcards such as a DC cherry blossom one and tried the Kramer’s Goober Pie. So incredible. I would highly recommend this place!

Arun Vishwanathan: Cute little bookstore in DC and you should stop by if in the area. Eclectic collection of titles and journals/calendars They do have a restaurant/diner inside, so you can grab a bite as well if you’re hungry. Wish I had more time to spend there..

Juhi Pac: Great bookstore-bar-restaurant combo right at DuPont circle. Very easily accessible by DuPont circle metro and good selection of books and atmosphere

Cara Forte: I'm really happy this awesome bookstore came recommended by a friend for me to check out while staying in Dupont Circle for a long weekend. The books and gifts are well curated and there is a restaurant in the store with delicious food, drinks, and dessert. The coffee is great, too.

Karen cohen: Helpful staff and a ton of books from every genre! Browsing is part of the fun or going there and see all the books you want to read. Have lunch in the dining area and spend the whole afternoon there. Huge children section,too.

C Luna: Food was fantastic! Especially the cherry blossom cheesecake :) Service was amazing- our waitress was sweet and funny. Definitely a great date spot ❤

John Weber: What a lovely place to look for books and grab a bite to eat! I only walked around the bookstore but from what I could tell, the food both looked and smelled amazing!! On the restaurant side, there are a couple lounge chairs/couches to relax in as well. Definitely stop by and drop in if you are nearby. I was able to park just a block away on a Friday night.

bruce hutson: Kramers. Since 1976, so it’s not new to many, unless you visit from outa town, like we did. Our friends, Bob and Lynn, came here on dates years ago, as many did and still do. Lots of stories within these walls, ups and downs, and today we sat in fleeting sunshine to taste the excellent Kramers Breakfast(tasty potatoes), and the full mouth, comforting Ham Benedict(such creamy Hollandaise). Oh, and the books fairly pulsed into our hands within the well laid out spaces. Feed your body, nourish your soul

M Boone: Good brunch menu with solid pairings. Visit it after strolling through the nearby Farmer's Market. Space inside is a little tight particularly with the kitchen in-the-middle, but cozy nonetheless. I enjoyed the chicken and waffles. Presentation is good. Prices are on par for D.C.

Quarib Chowdhury: This is a Washington DC institution. Everyone should visit, buy a book, and eat at the cafe. I’ve browsed through this place many many times and even bought books and ate at the cafe. I ate at the cafe years ago but remember everything being delicious. As someone with a big sweet tooth, the apple pie crust desert was amazing. The expansion to bring the cafe into the bookstore actually works really well. I’ll have to revisit the cafe next time.

Lincoln Memorial Bookstore: what do users think?


James Walker: Walk up the stairs to view the iconic memorial, and turn to your right to enter the bookstore. You will find items for sale to include portraits, books, and souvenirs of the 16th President of the United States. Open daily from 10AM to 6PM.

Alabama OUTSIDErs: The bookstore is in one of the corners of the Memorial. It is relatively small, so pretty crowded, but packed with tons of cool souvenirs and other things. Our son got a few of the "Lego" sets of the various monuments, memorials, and buildings. They were reasonably priced for their size and uniqueness. The man working inside was extremely friendly.

David Stearns: Stephanie was absolutely incredible! Immediately friendly and helpful and able to give us Helpful information about the surrounding area and sites to see! She was wonderful

Bruce Hrabak: Classic monument at the far end of the National Mall. A must see. Also make sure you see the korea and Vietnam memorial on the way in or out. Surprisingly has a handicap accessible entrance via an elevator to get the same great views reguardless of how you get to the top. A cornerstone of American history.

Michele Geronimo: This little souvenir shop is tucked away to the right of the entrance to the Lincoln Memorial. It was crowded, so not much room to maneuver. Spent most of our time looking at he Lincoln Memorial itself and sitting on the steps to enjoy sunset. This made for a great last stop to our day of sightseeing!

Ethan Stein: Pretty decent bookstore here, it’s in the corner and very hard too see but it is set up by the National Park Service who runs the parks and mostly everything on the park property. The merchandise is official not like something you will buy at a big gift shop on a big street. Bought a decent pin one time.

Tom Danahy: Small and crowded but nicely stocked. And a friendly staff who take great pride in being inside the monument. They took the time to find a shirt my size in the back and were helpful with questions we had.

Heather Wellington: I love this bookstore - you can always find something interesting. When I was five my parents got me a coloring book here of the First Ladies' gowns that I adored and ever since I've made sure to pop in and see what they have.

nati: Employees were very nice and they have a large selection of things to purchase!

ANDRES TORRES: Several sites to visit in good weather, it is a spectacular place a very clean city

Tom Klonoski: Ordered a Speed Racer snap-together model as a holiday gift.What was delivered was a Craig Breedlove glue-together kit.Owner told me to contact customer service but did not apologize.Fortunately for him, the recipient was okay with what he got.
Response: Hi Tom, apologies for the error. Did you try contacting our customer service team to get the issue fixed?

Mustard Viking: Ordered on a Friday after closing. Shipped out first thing Monday morning. Arrived at my doorstep that Friday, a few hours shy of 1 week from order to my door. And I'm in Canada! Everything was packed securely and safely.

John waldron jr: Overall a excellent online hobby shop. Great prices, vast selection and fast order fulfillment. Customer service is well above expectations. Mega hobby is my favorite go to online hobby shop period.

Charles Lehmann: The best hobby store I've found close to Philly. Some of their prices in store are more expensive than their website though.

William Boudreau: Customer focused? No. Friendly staff? No. A couple hundred dollar order was placed, and needed to make a ten dollar item substitution. They would not accommodate the change during the order fulfillment process. Person on the phone was rude and hung up on me stating they were too busy to make the change, someone else is calling, go ahead and refuse the shipment if you must. They said they were shipping the item anyway even if I cancel the order. This is terrible customer service, poor business etiquette. Highly recommend you get your products somewhere else.

Scott J. Lloyd: I have had several transactions with Megahobby and all of them have been hassle free, quickly shipped and good value. They have a wide variety of modeling tools and kits. Their prices are in line or mostly better than competitors.

Joe Moore: I had a question concerning a kit I wanted to purchase and Mega went through the trouble of checking the kit ( 1/32 Trumpeter SU27B ) . Brett at Mega opened the kit to check if it was an updated release, it was ! Great people at Mega ! This is the only place that has that kind of service ! JM

Denis McComb: Terrible Service!!!!! Frankly believe that this company maybe and internet scam. Ordered an item on 12/14 and still hasn’t arrived on 12/31!!!!! It doesn’t take 17 days to get from NJ to FL.....I could have walked the package here!!! Of course when you email the company, they send you a canned reply blaming the post office! Any real eTailer would have reshipped the order, and filed a claim with USPS.

Tania Samsonova: First, my order was accepted and then cancelled the very next day without any explanation or apology. My card, however, was charged promptly, and the money was only returned about 10 days later and only after I wrote an angry email to the customer service. Third, they withheld about $30 from the amount they initially charged. It must be nice to earn money that way, just charging other people's cards under false pretenses and then keeping a part of the unlawful charge as a souvenir.

Rory Goldman: From arts and crafts to gas powered model planes this place rocks. They are friendly, helpful and have a great selection. Its always nice to see a local shop surviving in spite of the internet. I found everything I was looking for and apparently it's a popular store based on the number of people waiting for thsm to open in the morning. Good place, five stars.

James Walker: Located steps below the Washington Monument, on the National Mall. Large selection of books on the first U.S. President and souvenir shop. You will also find public restrooms at this location.

Jessica Villarreal: We went in search of the National Parks passport book for my friends daughter. The person working, Cornelia Bryant, was AMAZING!!! She helped us so much. She made recommendations about getting the little circle stickers for my passport book (because I forgot it) and she looked through items in the back to see if she had specific year stamps we were looking for. She was also very friendly and patient. I have been to all of the National Mall bookstores at this point and she is the ONLY one who has ever helped me. Highly recommend this bookstore for the Mall over the others for that reason alone. Thanks Cornelia!!!!

Kirsten Neus: Great place to buy a Washington Monument book or souvenir, ask tourist information questions and get your National Park passport stamped.

Subrina W: 💕💕💕💕 Washington DC is beautiful!

REI Co-op: what do users think?


Michael Brown: As a company, REI should not inflict their political beliefs onto customers. That said, they carry good gear and this particular location is fantastic. Every time I have come here they have exactly what I need. The staff are friendly and helpful and generally knowledgeable. I don’t know who makes REI branded clothes and gear, but they do a good job.

Mike R: I like this store for so many reasons. First: they have excellent customer service. Today I walked in with my bike to get my flat tire fixed. A woman approached me and signed me in. Then a man walked up to me and asked if I would like to him to park my bike. I was appalled by this gesture. Second: This establishment has everything here. I mean like… leave that bike area if you want to. You will be buying anything from energy gel to underwear. Third: conveniently located right beside the metro.

Anne Probst: Thank you Jeremy in cycling for taking care of my bike I commute on. Haley assisted and was down to earth and happy. High five to Micah in footwear who helped me find a size in a scarpa I haven’t been able to find in stores in 4 years. He’s super knowledgeable and was connecting with all the customers. Thank you REI DC!

Patrick F.: The 2 stars is not for the products, it's for the lack of service. Lord forbid you need some help. I waited forever even after pushing this button (photo) and a guy that was helping someone else acknowledged they heard me and would be coming. Still waiting as I type this. FYI, I have purched thousands from this store....sigh!!

Louisa Buatti: I visited REI for the first time since the pandemic began. My pick up of an online order went very smoothly. Every staff person I encountered was friendly and helpful--they all offered to direct me to the customer service/pick up area. I was in and out of the store in a flash.

Andrea Wu: I came here to pick up my shoes that I ordered online, and after trying them out in nature, they were too big so I came back to return and get new ones. The staff helping me was very helpful, bringing me different shoes for me to try on. I finally got a pair that fit properly, and checkout was pretty speedy too. Parking on the street might be a bit tough, but it's not too bad!

H Gill: Great store! love REI… but checking out here is always a 15 min wait. The checkout line moves at a snail’s pace, and the managers/supervisors don’t seem to care. I’ve seen customers put items down and leave out of frustration.

Rebecca Tolbert: Generally a good store, but the parking situation is currently very weird. You park in the parking deck and then have to walk all the way around a whole city block because they have blocked off the elevator and stairs. So, you drive into the parking deck and then have this surprise journey ahead of you, through a sketchy alley and everything. Just wanted to give other customers a heads up!

Ben Layton: Bike shop effectively closes at 6:30, not 7:00, since you have to get on a wait-list to get the bike checked in and the wait-list closes at 6:30. Called in advance and told them when I'd get there and they didn't mention that, so came all the way here for nothing. Turnaround on basic repairs also 9-10 days rn, which is honestly nuts.

R: Oddly enough they aren’t dog friendly yet I saw a pitbull walking around without a service vest. The area around is horrendous, good luck finding a parking spot. Really disappointed that REIs aren’t dog friendly yet their competitors REI and Bass Pro is.

Christ Child Opportunity Shop: what do users think?


Kurt LaRose MSW LCSW LICSW: The antiques and the finds here are wonderful. The staff, volunteers, care so much about the items. Here I am reminded of my grandparents dishes, jewelry, paintings, dishes, silver, metalurgy, pocket watches, rugs .... and the iron statutes are just phenomenal. Today I found a 10k gold rosary engraved from 1924 ... with a historical attention to detail that is awesome. The people working in the store celebrate the items as you look.
Response: Thank you Kurt! We're so glad we were able to help you find some beautiful items!

rebecca leigh: A lovely store with beautiful things. Sometimes a bit pricey. The service is excellent and warm.

Sandra Biedron: Wow. Great place for vintage jewelry and everything else one needs for a home or office. Not only is everything repurposed but all proceeds go to children in the area that need help meeting their emotional needs. Found four rare Portmeirion pottery pieces as well as two pieces of vintage high-end jewelry. These were very fairly priced with the market. Excellent collection of dishes, silver, and crystal. Go there instead of doing a wedding registry! So much more green! Rock on Opportunity Shop - you made my heart happy today seeing things re-purposed! The place was packed!

Eric Rajendra: The best antique and bric-a-brac store in all of DC. Our family in Georgetown has given thousands of dollars worth in contributions of our own antiques we no longer needed and then we bought thousands of dollars more in antiques we needed!! This place is a gem for us Washingtonians!! The volunteer staff members are truly precious and really dedicated!! They love their work and make the entire experience of browsing a joy. The second floor has great stuff so GO UP!! Jewelry, silverware, Asian antiques, porcelain, etc! You won’t be disappointed. You need to return weekly as new consignments and donations come all the time!! Trust me.
Response: Thank you so much, Eric!

Sam Bartley: This place looks amazing. And everything is very nice. But this place is no thrift store. Almost everything here is consignment and the prices can be outrageous. If you're looking for a place to get fine decor and fine bone china (and you're willing to pay hundreds of dollars for it) this is the place. But if you're a student or a person that has anything called a budget restricting you, don't come here.
Response: Thank you for the feedback, Sam. We now host flash sales on Mondays on our Facebook and Instagram. 20% off select items from a range of different prices. You might find some treasures on there!

Randolph Lopez: Question the authenticity of the antiques and antiquities. Do not be misled. I was foolish enough to believe the descriptions that were displayed on the Asian pieces and the purity of some silver pieces that I purchased. I am not a seasoned collector. I only depend on the honesty of people; especially those associated with a “Christian” charity.

Tom Preston: Prices are too high, often higher than the antiques shops in the neighborhood. No bargains unfortunately. And reductions are not per standard consignment shops- only 20% every 60 days instead of every 30 days. Not sure how they stay in business TBH.
Response: Thanks for the feedback, Tom. We host flash sales on our Instagram and Facebook every Monday with 20% off select items. You may find some bargains there!

A. Greenough Dodd: Huge fan of this nonprofit consignment shop (aka The "Op Shop"!) that benefits the needs of DC area children. Always great finds, but definitely allow time to peruse the many items. Well-worth the search!
Response: Thanks for the kind words! We now have a Facebook and Instagram page where we highlight and feature different items. That may help you find some treasures! And yes we love our customers and their support of our mission of helping local mothers and babies in need!

Angela Van: Clean and organized decor consignment purchase structure (can see how the price drops by date). Always find something when I go in. Unfortunately, they just re-organized downstairs so the bulk is upstairs--no elevator.

Jonathan Fuhrman: Nice place for antiques. Everything has a date it came in and gets marked down every month. Prices are a bit high, but not outrageous.

M Street Glass: what do users think?


Olivia Henry: kind and helpful service - incredibly knowledgeable and they have an amazing (and large) selection

Shawnda Graham: I was greeted as soon as I walked in. The gentlemen were very professional and helpful. I’m an indecisive individual and they were very patient and well mannered.

M L: Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great selection on products as well, come here for your glass needs.

Vet Rebuild: While I wish I could say that I’ve been to the location, I can’t. I’ve called numerous times to see if they are actually open with Covid and not once do they answer the phone. Also, a company that doesn’t have a proper voicemail system to call customers back doesn’t sound much at all like a legitimate operation. They might be great if you’re actually able to get inside but if you don’t care enough about prospective clients, there’s not much else to say.
Response: Hi Mica! We apologize for your experience. We have been having issues with our phone line and are working on getting it fixed ASAP. Please come in for a 50% discount on a product of your choosing.

Charleston Yang: Helpful and friendly staff, had exactly what I was looking for.

John Zettler: Great place, great products, and great folks. Very convenient locationUpdate 12/2021: This establishment continues to excel in product selection, friendliness, prices, etc., and is in a great location. Thanks!

Alhanna Camacho: Sam was literally the nicest person! We called ahead of time to make sure they were open and he was swift to help us out! Once we got there Sam was super attentive and helped us out a lot to find what we needed. Shout out this store and shout out that mans Sam!!! If you’re traveling and in the area do yourself the favor and slide here.

Mj Burns: Sam helped me find what I wanted for a good price

Emily Soule: Shop owner is very nice and went out of his way to help me find what I needed. I will definitely return for more!

greg askew: Small cozy place with high quality glass. Very nice!
