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.

District Camera and Imaging: what do users think?


jamdonaldson: I am so grateful to Larry at District Camera, he was amazing. I had an important and sentimental project that required scanning many types of old photos. He was so pleasant and efficient. He made what was a very difficult project for me, so much better. I am grateful and I would highly recommend. Larry was awesome. We just don't have many business and employees like this anymore. Thanks District Camera.
Response: Thank you for your review. Everyone at District Camera tries hard to help our customers the best we can. This is our goal. I'm so glad you are happy with Larry's work. I'll pass your comments to him. Saed T.

Adriana Nateal Hammond: What I like about DC is how willing the staff is to explain anything technical you might want to know about using film. The only thing I'm not excited about is pricing and the lack of a detailed oriented approach to film development. For example, I had film developed and they didn't digitally convert all of my images. I was comparing the negatives to my digitals and some were missing. They were nice about it and asked me to come back in but I live NW so it's a bit of a trek. For how much you pay, it would be nice if they just did it right the first time.
Response: Hi Adriana, We usually scan all scannable negatives. Sometimes the scanner is not able to see the underexposed or overexposed negatives. Please let us know if you would like us to look at your negatives. Saed T.

Suzy Fitzgerald: I love District Camera! When I was living in DC this was the only place that I would get my film developed. Syed is the best, he is so friendly and answers all my camera and film questions! The scanning and development process is timely and the quality is very good. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for somewhere to get film developed!

Demna Devdariani: Today, I went to the store to look for a battery for my flashlight. Ken, who was sitting beside the computer, helped me find out which exact battery I needed. He was very kind, professional, and genuinely cared about finding the item even though the store did not carry that particular battery. He spent around 15-20 minutes looking for the item online for me. He was the most genuine and helpful store associate I have interacted with in recent years.
Response: Hi Demna, Thank you for your nice review and happy to be able to help. I'll make sure Ken will be aware of your review. Regards, Saed T.

Laura McQuade: Cannot recommend this place enough! I was visiting from the UK and needed film developing before my flight back. These guys developed and scanned 7 rolls over a week and each time, I got the scans emailed to me within two days. Such a lovely experience and Marvin is the absolute best. I've always struggled loading film into my manual camera and Marvin helped me do this with my new one. Most people just do it for you and don't talk you through the process, but he did and even took the time to watch me do it a few times just to make sure I was confident. Can't recommend this place enough and excited to visit again when I'm across the pond!
Response: Hi Laura, Many thanks for your nice review and also your business. I'll pass this to Marvin. He will be very pleased. We hope to see you again next time you are in DC. Stay safe. Saed T.

Emma K Alexandra: I’ve purchased many items from District Camera including a camera and lens. The quality of the products new and used has been fantastic. However, when I rented a lens for the weekend my experience was absolutely horrible. District camera has two account systems. One for their shop and one for rentals. Rentals require an ID, which is reasonable. This is tricky for me since I am transgender and my legal name does not match the name I use. When purchasing items I use my account with my preferred name on it. When I signed up to rent I used my legal name, so it matched my ID. I didn’t want any issues. I was able to rent the lens. But when I returned it I started to have issues. The person I returned the lens to asked if they could change the name on both of my accounts. I said no. I’d like to have my preferred name used on my store account. The person then said he was confused and it would be easier if they changed the name on both accounts and did it anyway. Despite me asking them not to. Now, I’m faced with having to use my legal name when I purchase anything from District Camera. This is awkward and embarrassing. It makes me never want to purchase from District Camera again. This experience shows that District Camera is not a trans friendly business and does not respect even the basic dignity of trans people. I tried my best to make this experience quick and simple and I came out of my rental never wanting to purchase from District Camera again. Very disappointing behavior. If District Camera wants to improve their respect for trans customers they need to allow the use of trans people’s preferred names and only require the usage of a legal name where absolutely necessary, like matching an ID. Their employees need to understand that not everyone wants their legal name used all of the time. And they certainly need to stop changing the names of trans people’s account to their legal name when specifically asked not to. Update 5/2/22: I understand that District Camera must accept an ID. That is not my issue. My issue is that my name was changed *in another account* for no apparent reason, even when I asked the person not to. I had to explain to the person I was working with my gender in front of many other customers
Response: Hi Emma, I'm sorry about this issue. Please rest assured that, District Camera and its employees DO NOT discriminate any type of customers. Our customers are our assets. Unfortunately, due to banking requirements we have no choice but to check IDs at the time of the transactions. I hope you understand our dilemmas and pleeeeease do not get upset with us. Saed T. Emma, I'm here to help solve this in a proper way. Please email me at: saed@districtcamera.com

Cynthia Loaiza-Shipp: I have only positive things to say of District Camera and Imaging! I've been going to this location for over a year now to get my camera cleaned and they are always so professional and punctual with their work. Today I needed a small accessory to turn my tripod into a sort of light stand so I went into the store. The service I received was above and beyond and I honestly cannot remember the last time I was served so well by any business! Even thought the part I was looking for was relatively inexpensive (about $10) Ken went out of his way to help me find the accessory. While Ken was helping me find what I was looking for Marvin and Syed asked me more questions about the lighting set up I was trying to work. Through a series of question, they helped me realize the amount of weight I was trying to put on a tripod would probably not work as the setup would be unstable and possibly unsafe. They helped me figure out that what I was actually looking for was a travel light stand. Unfortunately, they were sold out of the travel light stand that I needed, however this did not stop them from continuing to help me. They contacted another local camera store and after finding out they were sold out as well went as far as to contact a local camera store in San Jose, CA which is where I will be traveling to for my shoot. This entire team went above and beyond just as they always do and it made me realize it was about time I came and left them a review. Thank you Ken, Marvin and Syed! I am so thankful to have District Camera in DC and to be able to count on you all.

J F: I visited the shop today and I was greeted by the nicest employee, Ken! I was a little nervous to go in because I am quite a novice when it comes to photography. Luckily, Ken sensed my hesitation and kindly and patiently walked me through the entire process. I mean the entire process — film, shooting, and setting up my cameras. Also, Ken made sure to let me know what cameras were worth investing. I wish I could give this place 10 stars just because of Ken! I definitely will come back again !
Response: Hi JF, On behalf of Ken and the rest of the staff I would like to thank you for your heart warming review. Saed T.

Jon Bauer: In Washington for for a conference and found myself in immediate need of a card reader. Not the easiest thing to find. But when I googled nearby photography stores they came up. Only a couple blocks away. Not only that, I was met with most knowledgeable & friendly staff I could imagine. The store is stocked with new & used equipment. A small downtown oasis!
Response: Hi Jon, Very nice of you to spend some time a leave us your nice review. Thank you so much. Saed

Alex Baughman: I am a regular customer at this location, but not one to write too many reviews. However, during my latest visit, the staff provided service that made it necessary to write a review. I was almost two months late to pick up my developed photos; against all odds, Ken and Deon found them for me after looking for about 20 minutes. To be clear: they didn’t need to do this; they simply went above and beyond. I’ll look forward to always being a returning customer, especially at a place with such knowledgeable, friendly, and committed staff.
Response: Hi Alex, On behalf of our staff I would like to thank you for your business, your support and your 5 star review. May you have a healthy and happy New Year. Saed T.

Pro Photo Inc.: what do users think?


Yahya Aliyu: Recently got into photography and this was the closest pro camera shop to me, conveniently being on campus! I must admit, I've now visited multiple times and received arguably amongst the greatest levels of customer service from any establishment. All staff are incredibly affable, and the passion for photography in the atmosphere is almost tangible. Whether you're looking to buy something, get service, or just talk photography, this is the place!

Jenny Dopkins: The people here are very friendly and nice however I still didn’t have the best experience. I came in aiming to get rid of a specific spot on my camera and was told a sensor cleaning would probably get rid of it. I was later told when I came to pick the camera up that the spot was underneath the sensor and could not be removed with a regular cleaning. This is totally fine and understandable; however, I do not think I still should have been charged around 130 dollars for the sensor cleaning. I wish I would have gotten a call about how the specific spot could not be removed in which case I would have asked them not to go through with the cleaning. I understand how business works and that they may have started cleaning until they noticed the issue. However, to me it felt like a lot of money wasted. And as a student, I was not very happy having to save up to afford this and then spend the money with my problem still present. They are very nice though in terms of customer service although I didn’t complain about this in person so I’m not sure what they would have said.
Response: Hello Jenny, I am sorry to hear you feel as though we have let you down. Without going too far into the details, I am sure that the technician did a thorough job cleaning the camera however without performing that service we would never be able to tell that there is something behind the filter. Some cameras are designed with better sealing than other and some can be more prone to the dust particles penetrating beyond the reach of normal cleaning. It was a necessary service to get to the point of telling you what he did and it is quite likely that he said that in an effort to be informative. I can assure you that when you use your camera its most likely that you will not see the particles in your photo as you had before but we can go over the details with you in depth if you would like to call and discuss it or stop by. We can show you the process for checking your camera so you can always know when your camera needs to be cleaned and some preventative measures to take so it has to happen less often. You can call and talk to Sally. Happy shooting!

Gianina Lash: 100% recommend! came to them with a time-sensitive need for a battery charger for an older DSLR camera that we needed to use for an event 8 hours later. they helped us find a store that had the right type of charger in stock and charged the battery for us in the meantime. So impressed with their service and help when we were in a pinch!

Michael Sanchez: Brought in my Canon AE-1 Program to repair a jam, which they were able to do, albeit expensively (they were very transparent with costs throughout the process). The repair seems to have worked great, however the mirror is now extremely dirty, which is why I’m docking one star. Overall happy with the repair but definitely make sure to check everything before accepting your camera.

Elliott O'donovan: This is my go to camera store in DC. As a professional photographer, I always appreciate the hospitable customer service as well as the great selection of products that are competitively priced when compared to online retailers like Amazon or B&H. I would suggest supporting your local community and buying from ProPhoto!

Joe Nicol: I've been getting my disposable film developed here for a while now, way more reliable than CVS and great knowledgeable staff
Response: Thanks Joe! Glad you are happy with the service!

Philp Williams: I just can't write enough positive things about this shop. I dropped my Nikon FM2 and they did an outstanding job repairing for a very reasonable price. Everyone in that shop, all of them are very capable and customer focused. They really do good work. Philip Williams Newport News VA

First Class: I know they've been around for awhile, in fact I used them quite often as a BlackStar photojournalist during the 80's when down in DC on assignment, but I just got off the phone with them.. the agent said she never heard of "Studio Lighting", "Power Heads & Packs, Sales & Services, etc"... and yet they have the audacity to call themselves a Pro-Photo store? .... lol... more like a Wannabe-Pro-Photo store for local small format digital shooters and hobbyists. What happened guys?
Response: Hello. I am sorry for the misunderstanding or mis communication. Please let us make it up to you by calling and speaking with a senior staff member who will be able to assist you. It is likely that you may have spoken with staff who are still learning the ropes. At Pro Photo we are happy to have employees who are passionate and willing to learn from our more experienced members and knowledgeable customers. I am sure this would be a great learning opportunity.

Deltoria Gallant: I came for passport pictures for my infant and it was an excellent experience. very perfessional they knew exactly how to capture the perfect picture of my baby boy.

Benjamin Swanson: Great experience. Everything went smoothly and the staff was super nice! I definitely recommend these guys for camera needs!

Best Buy: what do users think?


Kiffa Shirley: Excellent service, clean store, full of big screen TVs ready for Christmas shoppers. If you’ve not been to the Columbia Heights Best Buy, is so convenient to the metro, and other shopping, and it put me in the Christmas Spirit.

Ricardo Matheus: So I walk in to shop for some apple products and I’m not sure if it is because of covid or what but there’s only like 2 people working there. I’m mostly disappointed in how no one tries to help. Not even to tell me to wait a sec because they are busy and they’ll be with me shortly. Just nothing. Not even sure they noticed I was there. Waited and walked around trying to get someone to get me the products I wanted to purchase but I mean, its 2022 I should have known better that service in the US is awful and should have just bought them online. I love Best Buy but definitely never buying anything in person again there. Shout out to the guy at the door, he was very friendly

Corey Moore: One of best best stocked, clean and friendly Best Buys in town! The people are helpful. The store is well stocked. The staff is very helpful. The online check-in for online orders & pickups, is awesome! They're really busy at times but the lines tend to always move at a pretty good place. Highly recommend this Best Buy location!

Lady Elexia: I love best buy as a rule, no matter where I find them. The columbia heights location is nice, but it is a bit on the small side. While I could find the basics, their selection of new items was a bit lack lusture. Customer service is always perfect, at least in my experiences.

Tig Vic: On 05/06/2022 around 2 pm, I countered a very rude, unprofessional, and clueless heavyset lady who calls herself a manager. I'm never going to spend my hard-earned money on this location or BestBuy in general.

Feseha Ayele: I went to the best buy store which is located at Colombia height to get the phone that I paid online. They told me that there is activation problem and I waited more than 2 hours without any solution even the store manager couldn't solve the problem. It was a good deal that they posted online. It's really disappointing not to get any solution or reasonable answer about my order. Which is $999 online with activation and they told me to pay $1799 in the store.

Alexis Smith: horrible customer service. I wandered around looking for an employee to ask for help and they all ignored me. Finally someone answered and she said she’d send someone to the home theater section to help me but of course, no one was there. The Best Buy in Tysons is so much accommodating and friendly. If you want a good experience, just avoid this place

Dawn Develin: Mack was amazing. He sat with me patiently and help me with my phone purchase. I very confused and not very savvy with technology and he treated me with respect and help me through every step without getting frustrated. Overall everybody at Best buy has been phenomenal but he went above and beyond.

John Newman: Nobody asked if I needed help. I finally left and ordered what I needed from Amazon. Horrible location. Thugs and hoodlums everywhere. The whole place reeks of pot smoke. Frightening place. There was a "security guard" (I use that term lightly) sitting on level 2 eating potato chips staring at his phone. I was afraid I would be mugged or shot at any time. Avoid at all costs.

Ramona Killings: Even though I have driven past this place numerous times, today was my very first visit. I think my excuse has always been the fact that it's located on the 2nd level inside of a building. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised. This place is humongous! I also picked up on the fact that there are a myriad of Associates on the floor, who seemed friendly and willing to help people. That hasn't always been my experience in the past at other locations. Perhaps the fact that I came here on a Sunday, and there were not that many shoppers inside. So I came for a cellphone, and a cellphone is what zi walked out with. I had been researching the Google 6 Pro that features an 8 megapixel camera. I bought it for right at $700.00 which I think was a decent price. I can't wait to start playing with it! Now that ai know that this place has so many more things to offer, I will have to come back here again to get more stuff!

Aperturent: what do users think?


Briana Adhikusuma: I've been using Aperturent for about a year now and I can't say enough good things. The employees are great to work with and are super helpful. My rental equipment always comes incredibly clean and in great condition. I never have had any issues with my rental equipment before - everything is always in perfect working order! Their rental prices are also a great deal!

Jami Davis: This was my first time renting camera equipment. I wanted to try a new body and lenses before I buy and this was the perfect opportunity. Initially getting approved took some effort on my part, but it is understandable with the value of the equipment they were trusting me with. This was a one time hassle, but not unexpected. Finding the DC location wasn't easy. It is in an office building with no indication of Aperturent being a tenant. Once I found it everything went smoothly. The equipment was in perfect condition and came in a box that held everything safely. My return was delayed and they were great at communicating and working with me for a late return. I can't rate them highly enough and I will be a repeat customer.

Isaac J: Such a cool spot to rent. They have more than competitive prices without the shipping costs for locals. The only knock is drop offs. They only have weekday hours, so commuting into the city during the work week is tough. I’m hoping they’ll have drop off partners in Virginia and Maryland.

Julie O.: Great place to rent cameras, lenses, and audio equipment! Love coming here when I need extra equipment for shoots. They're also very quick to respond if you need help choosing equipment or need to change rental times/dates. Would definitely recommend!

Rashad Smith: Aperturent is very convenient! You can just order and pick up the same day. They don’t always charge an arm and leg for deposits. I hope they continue to stay the way they are. Definitely recommend to try them.

Omoleye Akande: I found Aperturent about 6 months ago. I've been happy about my experience renting from here. The process is very smooth and secure. Highly recommend!

Dominik Jenkins: I hate it took me this long to find Aperturent! I would of been started years ago renting from them! Absoultley one of the best camera rental stores in DC! 5/5 stars!

Dan Boggs: I have rented lenses from Aperturent several times and each time has been flawless! The equipment is packed well and in great condition.

Anthony J Minter: Literally the only place I rent from since I found out about them. Excellent service, great prices and convenient. I’ve told so many people about them. THE BEST

Raygan Bell: Super organized, quick process, and very helpful when answering any questions you might have. I've rented from Aperturent a few times and I will forever be a returning customer!

Metro Camera: what do users think?


President Trump: I had an amazing experience at this store! I bought a lot of political merchandise and postcards! The owner was helpful, kind, and pleasant. We had a great conversation! This place is truly a hidden gem, it has been in business 49 years and the gentlemen has done a tremendous job with this business. I’ll be back!

Tamim Shams: Just don't west your Money going to this place! So unprofessional.Charging you $16 for two passport photo and this is what i had to do with mine.

Constantin T: I had passport photos done here recently, and they came out great. The owner (and photographer) is very kind and pleasant to work with.

Brendan Brady: I went in to Metro Camera Center to get a passport photo. When I took it to the post office they measured it and said it was not the correct size. I went back to Metro Camera Center to ask for a refund, and the store manager said he could only give me store credit. That is fine, except he was rude and suggested that the only reason I came back was because I did not like the passport photo. I informed him that the post office measured it and said the size was not correct and he proceeded to argue with me. If you are getting a passport photo taken, just do it at the post office. If you need any other camera supplies, there are many other stores who treat their customers better.

Mohammed Ghupta: This place is a great shop. I had an old photo that I could barely see. It was my memory of my mother when she died in Pakistan. The kind old gentlemen helped me right away and helped me get it framed. I also needed a passport photo and he fixed it right away. He is great with this type of technology. I would recommend this place 10/10 times. It is so helpful.

Chiloh Shelton: Do not I repeat do not come to this establishment for any type of photos especially passport photos. The gentleman that runs this establishment could care less about quality pictures and will not give you a refund even if the passport agency tells you that you cannot use the pictures that he takes. I just wasted $15 for pictures that I will have to use as a collage. Your best bet is to go to a CVS or Walgreens for Quality passport pictures.

Daniyal Rahim: I too had a horrible experience getting my passport photo taken here today. Do yourself a favor and listen to all the reviewers and go somewhere else. You deserve better!

John Zhao: Very informal for passport photos. Their attitude is horrible. She ask me to leave for dissatisfying with the unofficial passport photo she took. And it is overpriced, $15 !!! I can get a much better photo in DC at that price.

Steve Minard: This place is useless. Don't get your photos done here. They have a big neon sign in the back saying ONE HOUR PHOTO. Two DAYS later and my pictures aren't even back in the store yet. I don't even need prints! Just a CD! Get your photos developed elsewhere.

Kyle D: One of the only places in crystal city that will do notary on ANY document (wills, power of attorney, etc) - banks don’t do these kind of documents anymore! The gentleman / owner is nice and pleasant. Honestly who does one hour photo anymore though? Quite amazing businesses like this stay afloat. But I come here for all my notary needs!

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.

Target: what do users think?


Oliver Anderson: Best target in the DC area. This location boasts metro accessibility and excellent customer service! One employee named Maximo was a great help for me finding aquaphor ointment in a hurry.

Philip Lu: Great place to shop. One of the employees, Kecia, is so helpful and deserves a raise!

Miguel Adamson: Generally clean and is stocked with essentials. Poor management from team leads. Unless you absolutely need something, save yourself the time and visit a different local Target at Cleveland Park or Bethesda.

peter wrede: Avoid this place! I bought a Logitech keyboard on Aug. 15, 2021. It stopped working on Sept. 24. I went to customer service / returns on Sept. 26, only to be informed that there is a "hard return" date of Sept. 14 on the receipt. I should have brought it back by then. Never mind it broke down after barely one month of moderate use.

Rachel L: Ran into this target to pick a few things up quickly. Was slightly confused on where to enter as there were side doors but the store was organized and clean. Self checkout was absolutely packed and there weren’t many lines guiding folks where to stand but it went quick. The items I was looking for showed as in stock in the store which was nice because I found exactly what I needed.

Stuart Miles-McLean: Be aware that although this is in an urban setting, this is not one of those little urban mini-Targets -- this is a full size Target. This was my first visit to this location and the staff were very helpful and friendly. It's in a great location, too, on top of a metro station, downstairs is a full size hardware store, and all around are lots of places to eat and shop.

C. M.: Great store and close to metro exit. Not super large.

Jonathan Shafer: Very convenient location on top of the Tenleytown Metro. Nice to be able to get necessities in the city. This location has less stock than a suburban store, but they have all of the essentials. Nice to be able to get kitchen wares, clothing, and other home supplies someplace that's in the big city. There is parking here, but I don't know whether or how that works for customers. Only reason I don't give 5 stars is that the store has been consistently disorganized with some stock on floor or otherwise out of place.

Emily Beitzel: Honestly, the store is awesome. It had everything that I needed and it was easy to shop. The one downside was how rude the cashier was. I have NEVER been talked to like this before. And I wasn't being rude. She kept wanting me to use the self check out lane when I had some target online price matches. I told her I had some price matches and I was given nothing but sarcasm and attitude. Definitely did not appreciate that.

Brianna Brockington: Nice, clean Target just a few walks away from the Metro stop. Found almost everything I was looking for, however there were some empty shelves in some of the food aisles during a non-busy time. Not a big deal breaker though. It's worth the trip.

Best Buy: what do users think?


Matthew Schumacher: Best Buy is great as everybody who has ever gone to one knows. We stopped in to Best Buy to price some washers and dryers for our new home. They have fair pricing and what is even better is that they have a 4 week turn around time for the LG washer and dryer we are interested in. From what I hear from others, delivery for a washer and dryer is extremely delayed from most other companies. Having a 4 week turn around time is all the more reason for us to purchase our LG washer and dryer from Beat Buy.

Michael Patrick: Good experience today when buying products in store while waiting for an online order to be fulfilled. The product I ordered online was ready for pickup in 15 minutes. I was greeted by staff when entering and exiting. The store was clean and organized. The staff at checkout were fast and polite.

Caitlin DePorter: Do not get a car radio from here. The $500 jvc radio I got stopped working after several months of having it. I then had to get on a waitlist that was several months long before they could “fix” it. Well finally the car is brought in and they say they don’t see anything wrong and reboot it and send me on my way and suggest it may be a phone issue. I got the managers card in case the radio wasn’t actually fixed. The issue has persisted even after getting a new phone and they now refuse to help since I am outside of the one year warranty, even though they didn’t fix it to begin with when I brought it in within the one year. Complete waste of my money and now I have a non functioning radio Edit: Best Buy told me to do a software update but there’s no software update available for this model. They are clueless and I wish I had gotten it somewhere else.

Ellen Savage: Placed an order for curbside pickup. Text telling me my order was ready did not contain instructions on where to park. I figured out pickup orders had to be picked up from parking garage, which is a paid garage. Waited 28 minutes for my order to be brought out, then when leaving garage I had to pay $3 for parking because I was in garage for more than 15 minutes. Horrible experience.

Sarah G: Absolutely horrible location. No signage to the ACTUAL store entrance. Curbside pickup is In a parking garage, so how exactly do you notify them via internet/app that you're "Here, in Pickup Spot #2" if your signal is sketchy? I got enough signal to pull up my order & check in, but system said it was having problems & I needed to come inside anyway. Would have been easy to do if there were posted directions to the actual store. Employee that checked me in for Order Pickup at the counter was negative & gave me false information. Employee that helped bring order to car (finally) was helpful. Didn't catch his name. Have to pay for parking no matter what, even for what should be a quick curbside pickup. Shop other BB locations unless you're staying local & walking around Crystal City & just buying small items.

Carol Spalla: Be aware of "subscriptions" sales. This review is not at all related to the team who actually helped me and found everything I had to buy. This review is specifically to call out and call the attention to future customers who purchase anything at any Best Buy. I spend nearly $ 2,000 tonight and when I got home, I realized they added this "total tech yearly subscription" for $200 (!!). I never asked this and, in any moment, the details of this offer was explained to me in detail. Brandon was a nice store seller but I really felt cheated and I am disappointed with Best Buy for being so close to sales malpractices. When I reached out to support, via chat, they refund this service but still kept $7 for 1 day of this subscription use. It's been 5 hours I left the store. I did not use this service at all!! And though the Customer Support representative Vicky D. was very effectively and patient with me, she also did not explain to me that they would keep the $7. Again, I am feeling that Best Buy is training and enabling their staff to omit important details during sales and customer support interactions. Very sad and frustrating. It's not about the $7 - its not going to make me richer or poorer, but it's about transparency.

Lyn G: Mohammed was amazing in helping us set up our new phone and made sure we understood the entire process and answered all of our questions. This is refreshing to have such amazing customer service which seems so rare lately. Great job Mohammed !!!

Carla Dunlap: I recently purchased a elliptical fitness machine. Best Buy delivered it and assembled. I am so happy with my investment. The service was excellent.

Lauren Wiseman: Terrible customer service. They were rude when I declined buying any any additional things like protection and anti virus. I bought a computer there and they refused to validate my parking ticket, and didn't offer any further information. I will not be going back to that Best Buy.

Swami Reyes II: I was attended to by Mr. Raul. He was excellent and very forthcoming with detailed information about the surface pro's I was looking for. When I asked about the limitations on softwares the devices could run he did not hesitate to expand his knowledge pool to answer my questions; both through research and referral to the in-store geeksquad. Thank you Raul, your guidance has lead me to an excellent purchase.

Target: what do users think?


Connor Black: My friend is a former employee at this establishment and I decided to post this on their behalf to protect their anonymity. First off, HR is prone to scheduling shifts at horrible times with little regard for the time you will have between shifts. Now this could be fixed if HR was more present and was available to talk about shift scheduling and issues that arise from how they do it. Secondly, the General Manager is very aggressive with their style of management. They often are talking down to people and attempting to single them out for ridicule or to give attitude to. They also have zero regard for a worker's wellbeing or health, instead putting the business before the people who have to make sacrifices for it. If you ever do call out and the GM answers, be prepared because she will try to gaslight you and talk you out of whatever your legitimate reason for not being able to come in is.

Portia Massado: I was a former employee there and the reason why I left was for a career choice and also because of the GM Jemima Canage. Jemima Canage is THE WORST GM to work for the company. Target is her LIFE and if your in school or have a second job PLEASE DO NOT APPLY. Control freak YES she is. Jemima will over work you and will not give gradititude in return unless your a male that work in her store. She talks very mean and nasty to associates like they are nothing to her. I even had an incident where she yelled and charged herself at me like I was a child. It made me very very upset and if another manager wasn’t present I would of lost my job for walking out due to Jemima poor management skills. I even had customers come in and complain about how rude and mean she is. She also like to try to undermind people like they lack common sense. She recently fired someone for no apparent reason at all. She forced that man to come to work sick after expressing that he wasn’t feeling well. And he called the ambulance for himself just to prove to Jemima that he was sick. And in the process of her firing one person she lost 8people from that store. Even her ASM left because of her, 3LPs, and 4 associates. And right before I started 6months ago the original associates that were there had already gave the new people the rundown of Jemima Canage and how much they hated her and how she acts towards her employees. She doesn’t onow how to humble herself or treat people with REPSECT. She demands it then earning it or giving it back in return. And the nexr person she raises her voice at WILL NOT be as nice cause trust me I was VERY VERY ANGRY about it. Please get rid of that bad engery in that store. I feel sorry for all the people that are still there.

Kerry Delf: Small but fairly well provisioned food section, with both snack foods and some home groceries, heavy on the convenience foods. Prices are high but better than other stores in the area. Conveniently open until 11 p.m. on Saturdays, in an area where other stores close at 9 or 10, but it closes earlier on other days of the week. Free parking with store validation. Downside: Service was sparse and heavily dependent on self-service—there were no employees on the floor helping customers, and of three employees around the checkout counter, only one was operating a register, quite lackadaisically.

Peyton Doyle: Great small format Target in a really accessible part of Cleveland Park (and just steps from the Metro stop). Impressed with their selection of fresh foods. Nice home goods section too. Unique underground store. Really friendly employees! I will certainly be back.

Daniel: Right off the metro so it's convenient, not to mention, definitely bigger than you'd think. They took the investment of digging underground for the store (kind of like their NYC Tribeca location) and it definitely paid off. Validate parking when you leave since there's a lot attendant and a gate... no joke. Prices upscale for the location, but they had what I needed and would probably visit again.

Larry Gamble: I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the surroundings is a very beautiful place with a lot of awesome deals! it was a very nice experience for people are just super awesome everybody was all friendly and lot of excitement going on just keep it in the parking lot list fire I loved it

Lindsay Cooper: Purchased baby food online that was listed as in-stock. Received notifications that it was ready to pick-up. My husband went to pick it up and not only did they not have our order, they didn't have the product in stock. My husband then decided to purchase other items while he was there and was followed closely around the store by security so much that he had to ask the person to back off. I called Target HQ and they confirmed that the order was ready for pick up. I'll be going back to Amazon after this experience.

Chaturbhuj bhojwani: It is Very nice and very clean. It is small in size, but they've got everything from groceries to clothes and electronics. It is conveniently located near the red line Cleveland park metro station, and bus ( L1, L2) stop. when you walk in this location, it looks like you're at a duty-free shop at an airport. It is also a quick 5 minute walk from the zoo.

M P: Free parking but you MUST get your ticket validated in store. Great for quick Target run. You can always find helpful employees and if you don’t see what you are looking for ask and they’ll get it in stock. Great manager. Super clean store. Perfect location.

Sassi Whayz: Clean store, I love the floor separate.. x feels like a department store. Found a new favorite lady part cleaner

Dodge-Chrome, Inc.: what do users think?


Jon W.: We went to Dodge Chrome to have holiday cards produced. A family member went in to the store to look at and approve printed drafts. The store gave us multiple different drafts, some of which had radically different and unsatisfactory white balance. We reviewed the results as a family within the next hour or so and immediately called back to ask for clarification. We were just told that the cards were already "printed" and that no changes could even be discussed. Keep in mind that this was on a $1,300 order, and the request for clarification was made two hours after of the visit to the store.
Response: Jon - As you stated, your family member did work with our technician for over an hour on Saturday making adjustments to supplied iphone files - pictures of pictures on a wall to be used on your cards. Photo quality was an issue. Before leaving our store, the cards were approved and paid for in full. As the card files were already at the print station, the technician printed the order to help expedite it - as the majority of our clients appreciate at this time of the year. There was never any discussion of holding off on printing for further evaluation by your family. If the cards had not been printed, we would have been happy to make further adjustments. We appreciate you choosing Dodge Chrome for you holiday cards and we did make every effort to provide the best service possible.

Christopher M: Great local shop, fantastic for all printing services but a bit pricy for film developing / scanning, but that's just how it goes in DC. I only had one scanning mishap, which is why I gave 4 stars, but they did offer to rescan which was nice

Ally Aretz: This is the first time I thought it would ever be necessary to write a review. If you are getting (specifically) film developed DO NOT GO HERE. I paid $40 for two rolls which was somewhat steep, and then got to the store a week later only to pay another $20! They also said that they would call when the film was ready. I ended up calling a week and one day later to ask how it was going and they said it was ready. Anyways, I go to look at the 72 photos I thought would be developed. For some reason, 24 photos were missing. Definitely will not be going back here.
Response: Like most retail stores these days, we require deposits (if not full payment) on all orders. This payment in advance motivates clients to return and get their orders. Your $40.00 deposit payment covered the cost of processing two rolls of C41 35mm at $9.75 per roll for a total of $19.50 and part of the cost of the proof prints and cd that you ordered. As we can’t anticipate how many frames were exposed, we do not ask for full payment on proof prints in advance. Your two 36 exposure rolls of C41 yielded 60 prints. At .49 cents per print and $6.00 for the CD, your total order with tax came to $58.19, leaving a balance due upon pick up of $18.19. I apologize that you were not contacted with a phone call when your order was ready for pick up. It is a busy retail environment and we do our best to notify clients but focus on clients in the store and current production. We appreciate your patronage and would love for you to give us another try.

Burk Finley: I’ve had random good results in the past, but recently has a horrible print delivered that cost just shy of $200. They don’t have a calibrated profesional monitor in the shop and printing is done at the silver spring location. Silver spring has the properly calibrated monitors, so I was told after the fact. The photo came out super crushed and orange - as though the blue channel was almost eliminated. Pretty awful. After follow up questions regarding recourse they said there is none since I didn’t pay $60 to have a test print done ahead of time. I would highly recommend going to another shop that has a calibrated monitor on premise so you see what you’ll get ahead of time. At least not something radically different than what you may be looking at - as was my case. There are at least 2 such shops in DC. Not professional. Won’t be going back. Update: Within about a week of posting the above review I received a call from the owner, who in fact had looked into what happened before reaching out to me. She confirmed that the orange + red channels had been overly saturated during the printing, and offered to reprint the image. She sent a smaller test print (hard copy) to my house that matched her calibrated monitor, which looked better than what I had. It was great to hear from an owner who called out of concern that my experience did not represent her business, whether I continued to do business with them or not. She cares about accurate photo production and vowed to educate her staff on the newly calibrated monitor in the MacArthur Blvd. shop.

Rachel Minich: Very nice and well informed staff. My experience thus far with having my artwork scanned digitally has been a great learning experience for me. From now on, if I have anything to frame, even if it's a 5 by 7 photo, I will take it here to have "cleaned up". Well worth it! (I took an Inked paw print on a piece of white paper in to have it scanned and photoshopped: once it was scanned in, I saw how yellow the paper was that I used and all of its flaws, and when I got the edited version I couldn't have been happier. The manager is great, as is Dave.

Tierney Brown: Like many who still use film, I have some trust issues handing it over for someone else to process, but Dodge Chrome always does a great job. The staff are knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, and don't mind when I spend way too long gazing at film I just got back on their light tables. Also they cut film into 6's instead of the crappy 5 sheets that are a personal pet peeve. I actually enjoy trekking out to the Palisades to go visit them. I've also used their photo mounting service for a corporate project, and they were so easy to work with an accomodating of our schedule and requirements! The one time I brought them an especially unusual project they kindly looked into it for me before referring me to someone more suitable for the project, rather than doing a less than perfect job, and I really appreciate that as well. These guys are awesome!
Response: Thank you for your review.

Faisal Mohsin: I have had the unfortunate experience of losing a full C6 black and white roll of film which was destroyed during development. I was told this was because the roll became detached from the processing rack while in the developer bath and was not discovered till the end of the processing run, after which the roll could not be salvaged. This was obviously bitterly disappointing. Staff have expressed regret and unrecoverable errors are an unfortunate fact of manual film development. Still, I have not lost a roll of film in many years of shooting on traditional formats. Skilled tradespeople and reliable equipment are becoming harder to find as film has become an enthusiasts hobby. I would recommend going to a specialist who may charge higher prices for this work but who could carry it out with painstaking care than risk immeasurable and unrecoverable loss.
Response: We take great pride in our quality and professionalism. We understand your frustration and are very sorry for this unfortunate situation. Dodge-Chrome has processed film for professional photographers and notable publications, including National Geographic, for over 30 years using this same dip and dunk process and equipment. Dip and Dunk processing is the preferred method for commercial professional film processing. The equipment and chemistry are closely monitored by a highly trained technician who has more than 30 years of experience. Our technician monitors the transports between chemical baths, but because of the nature of the process it is not always apparent that there has been an issue until the processing has been completed and the film rack is transported to the dryer. Unfortunately, like anything else in life, nothing is without possible risk or potential for issue. We are proud to say that we have an excellent track record and that it is extremely rare for us to experience a situation like this.

Alexander Darvishian: Went in to get a few rolls of color 120 film developed and scanned. Ended up being fairly expensive but I was expecting the scans to be good given the reviews. I came back to pick up the film and was given a CD which was an annoyance since it’s such an outdated medium and good, cheap cloud sharing services exist in 2018. Once I finally tracked down a computer with a cd drive I opened the files to find either a booger or a seed or something on one of the scans... Paying about $20/roll for subpar jpegs with “things” in them is completely not worth it. For being the only game in town I would expect better. Looks like I’ll have to ship my rolls up to a lab in philly or nyc to get the job done right. Really a shame.
Response: We do offer the option of file transfer services in lieu of CDs. Without the chance to review, it is impossible to determine the origination of the "things" on "one of the scans". We willing accept the opportunity to correct issues for customers if given the opportunity. Thanks for your feedback.

nikki: This place is great! I just went here for the first time, and I'll be sure to give them my business in the future. They are really nice and easy to deal with, and they went out of their way to help me. I came in for a high quality scan, and that's what I got, along with wonderful service.
Response: Thank you for reviewing us.

Ryan McArdle: Went here for an international passport photo - they made sure it met the standards perfectly and it was quick and easy. Definitely recommend.

Target: what do users think?


Sassy Sauce: This store opened a couple years ago and it’s always nice and clean. The day I went after work the store must have just received a truck because there were boxes of product on most of the aisles. But this store is generally very clean and organized. This isn’t a normal sized target though, it’s definitely smaller and has more of a convenient store type feel. But all of the normal Target staples are still there. There is parking under the store and it’s accessible using the escalators or elevator. There is a Starbucks as well. It’s a great store to visit!

Amreen Shafiuddin: poorly managed target.. no one knew answers for anything. customer service was poor. stocking issues in all the aisles. boxes everywhere.. the food items especially bread section don’t have best before stickers on them. when questioned, they just saw each other faces. poorly managed.

Tracie: Pros: Near my home. New store. Available parking structure. Decent customer service. By decent i mean - I haven't had a negative experience with the customer but no one has gone above and beyond helping me. Cons: Generally feels empty. Yet every time I enter the store i notice staff are in the middle of restocking and have crates of things in the middle of the hallways blocking the pass way. This was even before covid so not sure whats going on (pictures shown from Dec 2021). Also, doesn't appear to be a parking attendant so anytime anyone lost their ticket, their is chaos trying to get out. Finally, prices seem a little higher than other targets, i get the sense that because its smaller things are limited and maybe marked up? Or maybe its just inflation and the whole food chain/ports being a hot mess.

Mysiki X Valentine: Whoa! Let me begin on a positive. There is a cashier (older Black woman) Joan, who is the most pleasant staff worker. However, the younger staff can often be found tucked away on phones, having side conversation and etc..so finding help is always difficult. In addition, the customer service could never be described as friendly. But it does not end there, this is one of the worst Target’s I’ve ever went shopping. The store shelves stay empty. I recently order Beats headphones online for pick-up, I was emailed saying my order was ready—but when I got to the store the manager cancelled my order, stating the item was not in the store. Long behold, I walked to the back and there sat 3) pairs of the same item I came to pick-up. Her attitude was out of this world, I couldn’t believe she worked in customer service. No matter what time of the day, the aisles have carts full of products yet to be put away. Makes the store seem chaotic and disorganized. If it’s a quick stop, I’d advise going elsewhere. Looking to do serious shopping, never stop here. To end on a positive the food section is normally well stocked and presented nicely.

Kareem Carter: Lets start by saying I am appreciative of having a Target in this area of DC. The parking facility is safe and well lit, the store was reasonably stocked and clean. My gripe is with the professionalism of the management and the completely ineffective way they run the checkout line. they funneled everyone through one line and when several customers skipped the single line and went straight to the register, they were allowed to do so.....causing frustration to the other customers in the line. This was brought to the lead employees attention and she sarcastically dismissed my frustration. They should really signage up on how the checkout line works!

Erin Truax: I have been to this Target a few times because it is the most convenient for me (and parking is easy) but I always leave feeling very frustrated. There are constantly boxes of inventory waiting to be unpacked that are blocking the aisles and many shelves are often missing product. I have shopped at different times and on different days, but this seems to be on ongoing issue for this location. If you’re able, I recommend a different location.

J Por: Went in for some quick toys for my nieces and nephew. Turned in to their Loss Prevention racially profiling my partner, and followed us around the store the entire time for 60 dollars worth of merchandise, part of which, we had to find an employee to get. We initially went in to make a return, and unfortunately had the idea to shop the last bit of our list. Workers letting people (guy in a blue hoodie was wearing a red shirt so possible employee?) walk around without a mask even though DC has a mandate, and the stores inventory is always in the way. Should have been more concerned following him to give him a mask instead of two people who were in your store less than 25 minutes. Overheard an employee talking about managers asking the team to get tested because of a potential positive employee. Overall, the worst experience I’ve had by far. I’ve been a consistent customer for three years, but no more. This location is best avoided. Trust me.

livingmytruth 2: Joan has the best customer service ever. I came in this location with my 98 year old grandma and she made my grandma feel sooo good and proud and she really has a positive attitude. Thank you for making my grandmother’s shopping experience so pleasant . I will actually make this my home store now because of her pleasant demeanor

Aaron Blackmon: Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go to a Walmart that is all red and has Target signs? Well wait no longer! This will fit the bill. The validated parking is a mess. The store is never stocked but simultaneously stocking everything at once and the lines are NEVER open. I only went there after learning my initial lesson months ago because it’s so close and I wanted to get a few things but even still it wasn’t worth it.

Chris Todd: The staff inside the store were friendly and helpful. However, the parking attendant was about as useless as a square wheel. I wanted to recharge my car. The sign in front of the chargers read "See attendant to activate". This dude was just sitting in his car. He refused to get up and wave whatever card he needed to wave to unlock the charging station. He didn't even acknowledge me other than saying "Uh". I tried activating the station with my SemaConnect app, but the station was locked out. I'm sure this Target is great, but I wouldn't come here in an EV because the dude who runs the chargers can't be bothered to get out of his car to do his job.

Best Buy: what do users think?


Landis Rojas: Nice place to stop by if you want to get new high tech products like laptops, PC, smart watches, gaming, toys, smartphones and more. The customer service is very nice and kind, they can help you to resolve your inquiries. It's s big warehouse and the prices are super good too and many offers. I recommended Best Buy!

Subrina W: Ammanique was great! Extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about products at Best Buy. Took us immediately to what we were looking to find in the huge Best Buy store and helped us with product selection.

Ieshia Baskett aka Hernandez: I got a open box too of the line washer. I selected the " excellent " option but it was by no means that. Called support and they was very timely and not at all helpful of the lengthy time wasted. Now this was a well research purchase and open box of large appliance is rare. I was in area helping out my Ex when I found the UNIVERSE said I'm once again working in your favor. Turns out 2 times for the last words support told me be4 drop call was they had another (false) to choose from and the manager will definitely help out. Well we'll well. He did and drop it to Fair condition prices so savings on top of saving. Then tells me he has the matching dryer. Now that's not on the budget but can be worked out. Especially if my guy one of the awesome mangers do fair price on that too. When your blessings come in !!! What the creator has for you!!! ❤❤🙏🙏😁😁

Sgt. Quackers: My review is for the installation service. I booked the service online to install a Garmin camera in my 2020 Ford Explorer. Booking online worked fine. No issues, not a lot of available dates but it may just be because they are busy. I got several reminder emails for my appointment as it was two months out from when made it. The Friday before a Monday appointment they called me to confirm. They made sure I had all the parts needed and told how long it would take. Day of the started working on it promptly at my appointment time. They asked where I wanted it installed and provided advise where it should be. Once completed they called and I picked up my car. The wiring job was great. I can't even see the wire beyond where it leaves the camera. The camera is in a great spot, out of the way but also in the middle where it will capture the best video. I would definitely recommend their service for hard wiring a camera

Henok Garedew (Henny breezy): I like this Best Buy so much, they have everything I need for same day pickup.Very helpful staff. I recommend it.

Kev- keepingitreal: Great atmosphere! Staff was helpful and friendly! Best Buy offer a wide variety of electronics, accessories and appliances. If you buy any equipment from Best Buy, the Geek Squad can help you with installation in your vehicle and or in your home.

Rogi: It did have air conditioning so one. The customer service wasn't necessarily bad but rather non existent. Not ideal when they lock up stuff like smart watch bands.

rachel braley: I have been trying to get in contact with somebody from this store for over a week to no avail. All calls are directed to the call center, which would be fine, except no one at the call center knows how to transfer me to the store line except maybe 1 out of every 12 people. Not only has the call center been unable to help me with what I need (which is why I need to get in contact with someone from the actual store) they have placed me on the call back list probably 5 times in the last week and a half and I haven’t gotten a single call back. ONE person knew how to transfer me to the store line but when I called I was sent to voicemail. I left a voicemail with my information on the ACTUAL store line and never heard anything back. I cannot go into the actual store because I now live three hours away, so getting in touch with someone over the phone is really my only option. However actually getting someone on the phone seems to be impossible so I really don’t know what to do at this point. The call center itself has been a bit of a nightmare. They keep trying to find my “Best Buy account” except I don’t have one but they think if they look up my phone number for the 1,000th time it will suddenly magically appear. Talking to the call center makes me feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone with how many times I’ve had to tell them I DONT HAVE A BEST BUY ACCOUNT. And one person hung up on me when they were only able to answer my questions with “I don’t know.” Honestly ridiculous. I’m currently looking into buying a new computer and a new TV but it won’t be at Best Buy. I will be taking my business elsewhere due to how much trouble I’ve had to go through. It shouldn’t be this hard to talk to somebody in the store.

Dottie “Dottie” Mount: My Best Buy experiences have been hit or miss, but this location has removed any hesitation that I had about Best Buy. The young man that helped me, Ezra, was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and made sure I got what I needed. I was very confused about what laptop to purchase based on my needs, and Ezra cleared it all up! He stayed with me, shopped on BestBuy.com until I found what I wanted. His customer service skills are exceptional and made me feel like I was the only customer. His follow thru and patience are worth the commute to this location! Thank you!!!

Houston: Yesterday, I had a great interaction in the elcectronics (PC/Laptop) section of the Best Buy in Potomac Yard (Alexandria VA). I was informed of products, directed to the appropriate section, and escorted to the cashiers counteres by Jefferey. He was a pleasure to be around and was very informative, sharp, and gave suggestions for a proper purchase. I left the store feeling comfortable with my purchase and will go back for further business. Thank you Jefferey!

DC-Camera: what do users think?


Casey McAdams: DC Camera is an invaluable resource. Not only for rentals but for advice as well. I could not do my job without Erich and his team. I've been relying on them for over a decade and they always get me what I need.

Jt Thompson: The staff here is so amazing! So helpful and attentive. They hold equipment release gatherings, meet and greets, and educational workshops. When you rent from them, for all intents and purposes, your project becomes their project. They see that all your equipment is in top order and that all your needs are met. Best rental house on the east coast!
Response: JT we very much appreciate your feedback, and we look forward to seeing and serving you again soon.

Mahnoor H: I have been renting from DC Camera for a few years now. They have exceptional customer service and have always been quick to respond to my rental requests and are always flexible in accommodating my last minute additions. Overall, I've had a great experience with the DC-Camera team and products and will continue to work with them!

Lizzy Bamford: DC Camera saved my senior film!! They are so knowledgeable of the gear and absolutely the best rental house I have ever worked with! The whole team does what they can to help students, and shows us how a professional rental house works. I am very appreciative for everything DC Camera has done for me and my project!
Response: Thank you Lizzy, glad we could help and hope your senior film was a great success!

Kai Dickson: We’ve had the fortune of working with DC Camera for every one of our major projects so far and without them, our films wouldn’t be the same. I’ve never been in contact with such a kind and responsive team, completely dedicated to making sure their clients get the job done in the best manner possible. I have nothing but love and great appreciation for them.
Response: We always work to help our clients to rent the right equipment needed to get their job done. Thank you for your kind words and our team is here to help you when needs arise.

Marcus Artis: DC Camera is a great place for you to rent a camera. They were able to advise me on the best equipment to use for the work I was trying to do. They have exceptional customer service and were very friendly. I was even able to switch out to a different lens, since they one I originally got was too big for what I wanted to do. Overall, great experience and will definitely be renting from them again if I need their services. Kyle was AWESOME!

Nausheen Dadabhoy: I had a lovely experience with the folks at DC-Camera! We had a major mix-up with our order and they made big adjustments for us which were very helpful. They also kindly walked us through the new gear that I wasn't as familiar with. They will definitely be my first call when I am filming in DC.

Kinetibeb Studios: Words can't explain how good I feel every time I come out of this DC-Camera. Simply the nicest & most honest people and the best service in the area. We love you guys and hope to work with you more often.
Response: Your feedback is very much appreciated by everyone here at DC Camera. We also hope to work with you again for all of your equipment rental needs. Thank you

R Doss: I had DC-Camera a really great experience while renting quasar science rainbow lights from here. The reservation was quick and easy online. The staff helped out with the setup of these light and provided the clamps for mounting to the C stands at no extra charge. Highly recommend them for your next shoot

Edward Trauschke: They were incredible! They went above and beyond to meet our needs. My company had a shipping issue come up and we were out of all of our equipment. DC Camera was extremely helpful and resourceful in my short notice time of need. Would highly recommend to anyone in the DC Metro Area.

Dominion Camera: what do users think?


jingwatube: I believed those good reviews and went to the shop. I was there at least 3 times, most of them were bad experiences. Yesterday I was there to print pictures, 15 minutes job took me 45 minutes. Till the last minute the "technician" still don't know what's the problem and how to fix it. It was I - a client - suggested to him to use an extra usb flash to resolve the issue. I explained to him that I wanted passport like photos, even specifically showed to him what's the size of head in the picture that I wanted. Today I went to get the printouts and found those pictures were totally unacceptable. Not only the size of the heads were not what I wanted, but the heads are not even whole. They refund me the money of course with no problem, but they tared those pictures in front of me in pieces like those pictures meant nothing to me. Seem to me very unprofessional. I'm sure some of their works worth the 5 star those reviewers gave to them. But I got only 1 star services. May be they have double or even multiple standards for their shop policy. This shop always give me an impression that they don't care to have my business. Whatever I cannot do by myself, they cannot do neither or they can only do it in a ridiculous high price - or I better don't bother the shop. I regret that I donated some of my used and brand new camera related items to this shop. Most likely I won't bother this shop any more. It never happened as in their reply that "you would have seen the on the Kiosk before they were ordered/printed". If I had seen the output on their machine I'd never put the order at first place.
Response: I am sorry you feel that way, we try hard to help all of our customer with the utmost professionalism and go out of our way to be courteous and go the extra mile.. First, as a store policy, we we always destroy returned customer pictures before throwing them away to protect the privacy of our customers and the subjects of the pictures. We tried to explain to you that the pictures that you got, you would have seen the on the Kiosk before they were ordered/printed and that is what we delivered. If you did not like the option, you could have told us at the time and we could have made a passport like picture or custom picture for about 10 times the cost you originally paid. These options were discussed with you today, and It was clear from the conversation that you were not interested in any of them, and that is why we refunded your money without any questions. We try to help ALL of our customers.. that is our passion and our purpose and again, we sorry you are not happy with what you received from Dominion Camera

Sherry Garay: I am an amateur photographer and I used to drive out to Burke to another local camera shop. I decided to give Dominion a try, and I am so glad I did! This is a locally owned “mom and pop” business and it feels good to support a small local business, instead of putting more money in the pocket of a man who wants to play around in outer space. The staff at the store are super knowledgeable. One of them used to work for Canon and can tell you everything you need to know about Canon gear. They helped me make my decision on moving to a new mirrorless camera. I believe they are the only local shop that does their film developing on site. They also do black and white developing by hand. My prints look better than they have in years! They also sell an array of cool films to play around with. I picked up a roll of Dracula film from Romania. They also take passport photos and guarantee them as acceptable by the State Department. I also just found out their classes have started back up and they have a studio space upstairs they rent out. Seriously, if you are a pro photographer or just an amateur like me, then support this local business. This is a great camera shop, with just about anything you could possibly need, including a used gear bargain shelf!

Jessica Border: Who ever said the customer service was good is delusional. I went in to get my film developed. He asked me if I wanted prints or digital and I said both. He told me that he can’t do both and if I wanted it, I need to do prints first, then when I come to pick up, I can order the digital copies. He was so rude to me. I won’t ever come hear again, I was literally about to walk out from the horribleness if this experience, which is a real shame.
Response: Hello. I am sorry you feel that way. We can definably do prints and digital files to USB or CD but we no longer are able to combine internet uploads and prints. You see, we used to offer upload and prints, but then people never came in to pick up the pictures. When we called customers to ask them to pick up their prints, they would tell us that after after they saw the digital images they did not want the prints and told us to throw them away. since the prints were not paid for we lost money on the prints In order to keep our costs under control, We had to make the difficult decision to stop that combination. The good thing is that once you get your digital files you can go to our website dominioncamera.com and order the prints you want. Again, I am sorry if my staff did not explain this well to you but we are committed to help our customers at all costs. If you would like to share your thoughts directly please call the store and ask for Gary Thanks!

Mike Tike: Gary is the best. I was looking for ZV-E10 ( sold out everywhere you can check that right now) but I swore it was sold out. He told me hd actually had one and the color I wanted. He looked all over the store and finally found it. That’s customer service you won’t find at Best Buy. I’m so happy with my purchase this is the only place I’m going to for camera equipment and vlogging gear.

W Russell: I found this place by walking around Falls Church. For a photographer or anyone interested in any level of photography, this place has it all! Prices are reasonable and the customer service is 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟!! Gary, the owner, is super friendly and knowledgeable in his products. GREAT PLACE!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Keep up the great work Dominion!

Michael Ryan: Really good experience over several visits to Dominion Camera. The team, especially Gary, are really knowledgeable and helpful. Some highlights: - Fixed my film camera for free after taking it in - Good film development and quick turnaround - Spent several days and hours going over a new camera to purchase. They were helpful and patient to make sure I got what would fit my needs. Highly recommend.

Daniel Ramirez (NiceWaffles): I've been here a few times, out of all of the camera stores I've been at so far. These have been the nicest people. That may not be shocking but if you visit some camera stores in DC, the staff aren't so nice over there. But these people here at Dominion camera so really kind and helped me select which lenses to purchase for my camera I highly recommend this shop! My favorite camera shop :)

Jim Arnold: I'm not a camera guy, nor am I that much of a tech guy in general. All I know is that I had a giant bag of film that I inherited from my late mother who never got around to developing it. Dominion Camera was the only place I found to help me develop/scan all of it, and their customer service and staff won me over the whole time. As simple as each transaction was, they made me enjoy stopping in and took care of me the whole way through (and made sure I didn't get charged for scans on blank film!). My bag of film is now empty and I wish I had a reason to continue giving this hometown shop my money; I really appreciate them.

sahra ahmad: I’ve been meaning to write this review for a while now. I love supporting small businesses, and this one is one of my favorites. It is right near my office and taking my film to get developed and print is so nice. I appreciate that unlike the big corporations (CVS, Walmart, etc) they only make you pay for the photos that they found, so if a piece of film was bad, they don’t charge you for a print of that. I also enjoy that it is so quickly done! Unlike the big corporations that take up to like 2 weeks, they took only a fraction of that time. The quality of the picture paper was nice too- I always go with a matte finish. Nicest people ever work there, and overall I would highly recommend! I know this sounds like a fake review, but I promise this is 100% legit. I can’t wait to take more of my film to get developed.

Cory Concha: Outstanding film processing, much better than any pharmacy service, and they're capable of same day service if you drop off your film by 10 am on the days they process. Definitely the highest quality prints and scans I've ever gotten and for the same price as the pharmacy locations who take two weeks and never return your negatives. With that said I interacted very sparingly with the staff and have not used any other services/purchased any other equipment from them, so I have no perspective in that regard. But I can safely and highly recommend them for film processing.

Target: what do users think?


Tyler Isabelle: I ordered one thing for pickup at noon, got an email it was ready by 1pm and to come any time, and went to the store at 3:30pm. Only to find out the order had still not been fulfilled. Finally they bring it out and I just got home and I got the WRONG item. Attention to detail folks!!

Helen Mengesha: I go to the pharmacy here and I never saw some pharmacy that refill prescriptions without the customers consent just for money. Beware at the pharmacy here that is only after the money and don’t care about the actual care of the medicine for the individual client like they want to play games on health.

Joanie Reynolds: Super small Target, not much bigger than a large CVS. Has a decent food section of frozen and non perishables. There is not much for clothing and home goods. Better to go to the Potomac Yards Target is you are able to drive. It works for one off things and is in walking distance of most apartments and work offices.

Ree A: Pretty small branch of Target. It has fresh fruit and vegetables, CVS pharmacy and grocery but lack to parking

Chris DeLorenzo: I think I may have just had the worst customer service experience of my life. I'm not exaggerating about that. I went to this Target today and tried to buy a few things. Since Target is too cheap to pay actual cashiers, I went to the self-checkout. I scanned a few items, but when I tried to scan my bananas, the screen on the machine said "thank you for your patience, an associate will assist you shortly." I looked around. There was an employee next to me. She seemed not to notice. But I figured the system must have alerted someone, so I waited. The employee walked behind me. I guess she saw the message on my screen. She flagged down her co-worker and pointed at me. Yes, just pointed. Didn't interact with me at all. Didn't say, "this gentleman needs some help." Just stood there and pointed her long, bony finger at me, as though I were a piece of defective merchandise. Her coworker said "I'll be there in a minute." To her, not to me. Again, no interaction with me at all. I stood there for another 45 seconds or so while both employees also just stood where they were, not appearing to be doing anything. Finally, I had had enough, so I left all the things I was going to buy at the checkout machine and walked out. As I was leaving, I heard the second employee say "oh, he left." Not a single attempt to get my attention, apologize, or avoid losing my business. Not a single iota of interaction with me, even though the store was mostly empty and neither of them were dealing with other customers. Also, they were selling apples at $1.09. No, not $1.09 per pound. $1.09 per apple. Even the most nefarious Whole Foods executive would consider that a rip-off.

Alicia Halim: Of course we all love Target. The Rosslyn location was a gem.

Leigh Edmonds: I regularly visit the Rosslyn Target location because it is within walking distance of my residence. It does not carry nearly as many products as a normal Target and it’s prices are often higher than the larger Targets in the region, but it’s convenient. During COVID, this store took every precaution to keep customers safe - carts and baskets were properly sanitized between uses and self checkout kiosks were as well. When things began to open up, however, the sanitation practices ended and the courtesy wipe station has been empty….this has gone on for months…months. We are still in a pandemic! I hope they rectify this soon, but until then - bring your own wipes and something to layer the bottom of your filthy basket because if you ask a staffer for a wipe, they’ll tell you with an annoyed tone that they don’t have them.

Rina: I just purchased a laptop here 10 minutes after I called the store and told them that I was coming to pick it up. I waited a good 10 - 15 minutes to be assisted and Ms.Toi stopped what she was doing just to help me when she seen no one else would. Her kindness and patience is very much appreciated. She has amazing energy, was respectful and was really quick at getting me checked out . I would definitely visit again just because of her .

T Sloan: Worst Target I have ever been to. Inventory was lacking with shelves bare all over the store. Confusing store to navigate as well. I went to buy basics like Windex window cleaner and a tub/bath mat; none. Never again.

Debbie Yen: While this Target has most things you need, the staff here is so unfriendly and often outright rude when you ask for any service above self-checkout.

Ace Photo: what do users think?


Laura Inglis: Nice selection and the people who work there are very knowledgeable, which is a great combination if you're not sure what to buy or have questions. Decent selection of cameras and lenses for Canon, Nikon, Fugi and Sony. They also sell used cameras (including film camers) and lenses and can develop film. Good selection accessories for amateur and professional photographers too. If you are looking for a camera bag don't shop on line - they have 2 rooms of all kinds of bags to check out.

Alan Cinsavich: I heard about this place from a colleague and the moment I stepped into the store I think I fell in love and went to heaven at the same time. For professional photography and videography this place has everything! And I mean everything! Camera bodies, lenses, flashes, lighting, backgrounds, bags, filters, accessories, camcorders to Cinema HD cameras and the list can go on. And even more amazing they have film camera and can also develop B&W and Color film! Robert the manager was super nice, had a great sense of humor and very helpful and knowledgeable. They also accept trade-in. I live in Maryland and while this place may be far from home for me I am definitely planning on making special trips to this Mecca of Camera Stores.

Krys M Gatmaitan: My wife is a professional photographer so it was great to know a dedicated camera shop is nearby. Staff are super friendly and knowledgeable, they'll be happy to point you in fhe right direction if you need anything specific. They have everything photography-related she could ask for. 7 foot umbrella? Check. Extra camera batteries with external charger? Check. Tripods and extra lens caps? Check and check. Camera bags, lenses for rent, and cool antique cameras to gaze at for a conversation starter? Check, check, and check. There's honestly a huge selection of cameras and accessories for all brands that would give B&H and Adorama a run for their money. Did I mention that prices are just about the same, if not more competitive, Amazon included? There's an entire room full of umbrellas, diffusers, and various camera bags, I would suggest checking here first before buying online anywhere to avoid the shipping costs and reduce the carbon footprint Their website even lists the available inventory, and if you so choose, some of it can be ordered online and shipped to you. What more could you ask for?

Marc Nowell: Amazing service, friendly staff. They had the vintage part I needed and got it shipped quickly. I bought through Amazon, and when a refund was needed it was processed no questions asked. Their inventory is fantastic, both new and pre-owned. Check 'em out!

Puneet Sikand: Great Equipment selection and reasonable prices, but I was disappointed with the way they handle film negatives - I dropped off a roll of 120 type film for developing, and the person responsible had stuffed the developed negatives into an envelope meant for 35mm film, instead of boxing it as is standard practice with 120 type film. The film is now permanently warped despite keeping it under weighted books overnight to flatten it. I can't get sharp scans out of the film because it is so badly deformed. To add insult to injury, the lab tech evidently unrolled the exposed film outside the darkroom, because the first exposure is partly fully exposed - another very basic mistake. I took photos of my 3-month old baby on film, hoping to preserve a memory of my baby on film - and the best photo is essentially ruined because of poor handling. The attached photo shows the damage, and I think I'll be sending my film elsewhere for development from now on.

Mike Litters: Friendly staff, very helpful. Great selection of new and used cameras and lenses. A little pricey... But so are cameras and lenses

Liz Evans: It's disappointing I have to leave this review, but here we are. Long story short, I came in to get an XT3 camera on 4/3/22. They had one in the store for $1499, quoted me at 1499, but charged me $1899. Evan was assisting me and seemed uncertain on which price I should be charged because the box he grabbed from the back was 1899. Evan said that was weird and eventually went and got the 1499 box. He scanned it, it showed up as $1499 in the store's system. To confirm, he price-checked on B&H's site by scanning the barcode on each box. $1499 was listed on B&H as $1499, the $1899 box didn't show up at all on their site. Evan was still confused 🙄. Another associate (Jacob) told Evan to charge me the $1499 if that's what the system was saying. Evan tried to get me to come back the next day (Monday) so he could talk to someone named Mo/Moe- but Jacob told Evan that Mo/Moe wouldn't know the price. And I explained I had work on Monday, that he verified the price on B&H, and I'd take the $1499 while I was standing there in the store. When I came back from the bathroom, Evan said it had to be the store's mistake because the other boxes were $1899, it's 1899 on Amazon, so...he was charging me 1899 (which was really $2023 total) and he asked "Is that cool?" I only paid because I was annoyed and wanted a camera, but I came back 30mins later to get a refund because that didn't feel right. Jacob had an attitude and Evan tried to say he had tried to "help me" find a cheaper one (he didn't, he was trying to justify charging more). Jacob said I was charged $1899 because the camera is listed as Out of Stock on B&H at the $1499 price. Okay. I spoke to B&H. If something is listed as Out of Stock, the price doesn't change. Actually it's held at that listed price until the item is back in stock. So what you see on B&H is what it is. The $1499 on B&H could have been honored, especially if that's what it already was in your store. In B&H's words, they wouldn't know or understand why the store wouldn't price match at $1499. Out of Stock doesn't mean charge $400 more because that's what you see on Amazon--- Evan (which he told me), and Jacob. Jacob also said while processing my refund he hoped I could find another $1500 camera. I'm thinking you had- on B&H, and regardless- I did. From the parking lot. I ordered an XT3 kit that came with a tripod and other items for LESS than $1500 total, and it came two days later. It's on my desk right now. I can always find another camera. I hope you find another customer to buy that camera off your shelf. It's just sad because I planned on buying lenses, equipment, maybe another camera just because I had liked the store. It is a nice store, but the people inside of it make a difference. I planned on coming back and building my setup, and I was looking forward to doing these things in person, despite the 1-hour drive. I would have been back. That $400 or $600 would have been easily made up, plus some. But by not honoring what was in the system, looking out for a customer the first time, whatever the reason or policy, you lost the whole sale and I won't be back. I'm happy with the XT3, love it, just sad I went through two different stores in person before ordering online and online was the easiest and smoothest experience- and cheaper.

C Davidson: Super crowded store. Looked around for quite a while to find a couple of items - was never approached by a sales person. They have good stock and prices. I left without buying anything.

Dave Dickhaut: Went in on MLK Day to look for lights and mounts, maybe talk some camera rigging. There seemed to be 3 employees in the store, but not a single one of them acknowledged us. I hovered around the center of the store, giving off the "customer in distress" vibe, but the guy behind the counter wouldn't even pause his conversation with his buddy long enough to make eye contact. After 15 mins I gave up, went home and ordered from B&H photo. I'd so much prefer to give money to a local store than the faceless web, but I'm only half the equation. I can't even comment on fair prices because none of the lights had price tags. All in all an unpleasant experience, which is a shame.

Ann Esther: If you need to get your film processed this is the place!! Everything was done quick and on time and the results had me flabbergasted. This is the place for all things photo.

Walmart Supercenter: what do users think?


Kev- keepingitreal: This Walmart offers Capital City Mambo Sauce, Fruits, Vegetables, Seafood, Poultry, Dairy and all sorts of Household Items. This Walmart needs to improve its Elevator services, only two out three of the elevators are working, it would be nice if they removed one of the elevator and replace it with stairs that lead customers from the parking garage to the street level and to Walmart store level for easy access. The current stairs only give customer access from the street level to Walmart store and no access to the parking garage. This Walmart includes a Pharmacy and free two hours of parking in the parking garage. This store has shopping carts available in the store and in the garage areas.

Mirka Mendez: It's Walmart, there are no grocery stores nearby (that I know) so it's an option. Smaller than the usual supercenter, very small produce section. There was an approximately 10 min wait at every registers when I visited.

PaulDavid Morado: Not exactly the best side of town. It is Walmart so all things that go with Walmart come along with this place. It's not close to any Metro station so be prepared for a walk is it on the other side of Chinatown. Excellent place for fruits and vegetables in all things grocery but be prepared also to bring your own bags as there seems to be carts missing

Aminah Imani: Its conveniently located but not the best Walmart to be in. The customers were loud and the security with large bullet proof vests doesn’t make it a welcoming vibe. Grab your products and head out quick. They do validate parking and leave patience for the slow running elevators. The employees were helpful and efficient. This location isn’t my preference but it gets the job done when in dire need.

Sassy Sauce: Mixed experience with this store. It’s a good location and there is parking available in the underground garage. First 2 hours are free. The store has items locked in a case that I couldn’t understand. For example, women’s underwear and some personal hygiene items. Also, the store wasn’t too crowded while I was there and the associate I asked to help me gave me clear directions as to what aisle the product I needed would on. The parts of the store I visited were clean and the overall shopping experience was ok. No major complaints. Just strange observations about profits being locked behind glass.

C. Zed: Well it exists, that I appreciate. I’ll continue to shop here. The cashiers scan items more than once, has already happened twice for me. The store is small and often too messy. The aisles are narrow, and the carts are way too big for the store. Many items are locked behind cases. Could be a better experience, especially for the closest location to the US Capitol.

Henok Garedew (Henny breezy): There is always problems in this specific Walmart all the timeI don’t recommend it

Virginia S: Need more employees/cashiers working. These stores rely too heavily on self checkout. Which is fine if you like to DIY but there shouldn't be so little cashiers that you turn the customers into employees and shoppers at the same time. Some people go shopping for the experience of the human interaction they have buying their things, having someone else ring it up is part of the experiences. Stop cutting corners your customers are not happy with it trust me

Van D Peluche: Terrible terrible. Twice I have ordered online groceries and the first time I did not get it until an hour later and the second time I didn’t get it until a day later than the scheduled period. Absolutely awful. Plus no one in any department answers phone calls. And their produce is very poor quality. May as well not even have the grocery delivery service. Will not even notify about orders being held for the next day.

Harriet Saulsbury: Love shopping at Walmart, some of the eorker are rude ask them a question they always say its not my department and walk away. Another thing as many seniors and disable people shopping there on a daily basis you only have maybe 10 electric scooters for the entire store which is a super store but you have maybe only 2 scooters working. You also took away your seating you have in the lobby of the stores where are we supposed to sit and wait on rides and family members to finish shopping?

Best Buy: what do users think?


Marko Mitic: Alright, I’ll be honest and straightforward. My 1* review is based on what kind of service is happening in store, not on product itself. First I was helped from tall gentleman, he was kind, helpful, good listener and respected my opinion! He will remember me :”He compliment my hairstyle also”. He redirected me to older gentlemen which lately disappeared and I was finishing with third guy who talk-so-much-and-never-stop-to-talk. He tried to sell me same lap top but brand new (I asked for brand new). After back and forward I said how they told me they have it on stock and I was waiting another 10min to find that one. Very shady, but okay, he tried. Listen, I am in store to purchase laptop, I asked simple questions, do not give me story “we are not on commission” and do not try to sell me warranty 10 times. LITERALLY 10 times. I am not kidding. Also he said I CAN NOT settle up monthly payment if I do not have Best Buy credit card and I need to apply for one. I literally was in store 1 h. At the end I got my credit card which I didn’t wanted. Not necessarily need it. He was laying to me and doing shady business. I am not purchasing nothing with that one anymore. So he did 2 things today, lost a customer because stupid cc and was lying there doing shady business and providing very poor and slow service. And make me to not use that card never in my life because interest on it🤷‍♂️ Y’all take care of your costumers and train your staff better. Because this is shame!

Michael Patrick: This specific experience here was less than desirable. I ordered a product online, the site said two were in stock. I arrived early for in store pickup. The sales rep went to look for the item. He returned and said that they couldn't find it, that there was one in the store but still couldn't find it. He said I could go to a different store with one in stock. I asked him to call the other store and confirm it is in stock to avoid repeating this experience. He refused, stating that the process does not work like that. He was more than happy to cancel my order altogether. Amazon will have it to me by 5pm.

Bret Bellamy: 3/7/22: After contacting both the credit card company and the Better Business Bureau, Best Buy HQ in Minnesota removed the duplicate charge and credited it to my account and now my balance us correct. While glad it is resolved, this should have been a simple change to make by the store manager without having to get the credit card company, the BBB, and corporate HQ involved. Adding one star to my rating since a satisfactory resolution happened. Prior review: I recently bought a new HP laptop at Best Buy - Falls Church. There was some confusion with the pickup. When I went to pick up my online order, there was a mix up and I ended up being charged twice for a new computer. I only bought one, but they had a record as 1 online purchase and 1 store bought purchase. I tried to resolve with the pick up staff and the "manager" on 2/26 to no avail, I was told it would be "faster" to use the 1-888-Best-Buy number. After 45 minutes on the phone with "customer service" and going through four people who were not able to resolve the issue, I was cut off while "on hold". I called the Best Buy credit card number (Citi bank) and finally got a competent person who was able to resolve the issue in three minutes and will contact the useless incompetents at Best Buy-Falls Church to delete the duplicate charge. I have been a Best Buy customer for eight years and I doubt that I will continue. They try to cheat seniors and then give them the runaround BS when trying to resolve an issue. The Geek Squad staff at this store is great, they are the only competent staff at this store. Don't shop at Best Buy-Falls Church!

Jessica McNutt: It's best buy. I only go when I absolutely must. Customer service is generally not good and, despite there being as many employees as customers, we always have to wait a strange amount of time to check out. If you can order online from somewhere else, do it!

Kristin Rever: Management needs to make sure employees are aware of services actually provided before saying a repair could be done. We had an appointment to repair my daughter's Smasung phone. He called on Thursday to verify this type of repair (replacement of motherboard) could be done. When we arrived the Geek Squad staff told us that unfortunately they did not do thus type of repair yet. The staff was pleasant and friendly and referred us to another location. This us issue could have been avoided if Best Buy was actually aware of the type of services they could provide. A waste of our time and gas.

Vincent Wagner: I went to the geek squad here because I was having trouble with an SSD install. They fixed the problem and offered to transfer the data from my old drive. 100 was a little steep for a simple data transfer but I was done putting energy. They assured me they could do it in a day. Once again, this seemed like a really long time for a data transfer. I didn't care so long as they had it done by the next day. The next day, they called me two hours before close and said they needed my Microsoft password to "make sure it boots up after the transfer". I said ok, I don't know my password but I will reset it and give it to you once I come pick it up. They assured me the they had already completed the transfer. When I got there the person at the counter harassed me to describe my computer after I brought in the paperwork they make you sign. I gave them my new password and they said that the data transfer did not take place and they will need an hour and a half to do the transfer. They would need to wait till the next day since it was close to close. I needed my computer today. Why should a data transfer take 48 hours. They do not communicate effectively. They lie. They don't care. Don't go here. Give your money to a local business.

K M: Disgusting customer service! I wish I could give them zero stars. Today I dealt with manager Mr Fathim, very disrespectful. Walked away from me when I had an appointment for a Samsung device repair, I get to the store and I’m being told they don’t provide that service. I’m being told I’m too loud and he refuses to give me his last name. Also geek squad member Asaf, same scenario, unhelpful, rude, can’t even greet me and refuses to give me his last name. I do not recommend this store to anyone. Please take your money to a different store. Preferably where the managers have manners and don’t disregard their customers.

Christopher Jesus (Sizedbbq7): I'm between 18-30 years of age, native English speaker with anxiety of talking to people in person. The employees that helped me were patient and helpful. Took me less than 10 minutes to find what I needed and get out.

Sharon: I really need to stop coming here. It gets no better. I had a very bad experience here compared to the Springfield, VA store. Margarita at the Springfield store was very helpful in me buying a new phone, activation AND set up/data transfer! And guess what, she didn't charge me $40 as this Falls Church store insisted I pay and insisted ALL stores charge this setup/transfer fee. So I buy a $1000 phone from you, case....and you charge me $40 to download an app and watch this app transfer all my data within 20 minutes?! Then claim, "every BB store does this?" GREED over customer service, Shameful. So glad I went to the Springfield location and met Margarita to take care of me!

Noor Ayoob: Great deals they have now . BestBuy is the best place for everyone now , we all need Technology in our life and this is the right place to go . Also if you are a gamer or vlogger you can get all your deals and supplies from here . Great customer service definitely coming back soon a lot of things I need to buy . Come on best buy give me a good deal on Pixel3 please this is the phone I want to buy. Think about it and let me know. Keep up the great work .

Apple Carnegie Library: what do users think?


Vi Rodriguez: This is a very cool building to visit. The history behind it is also very interesting which you can learn all about it in the basement. The building is very clean!! Lots of staff available to help answer any questions you may have. The first and main floor is the Apple store but it’s not like a regular Apple store. There is a huge selection of all of Apple’s products. On the second floor is a digital art gallery and the library but they were both clothed when I came on a Saturday. Still a cool visit and it’s free to enter and walk around.

Swire Ho: From out of town and we almost didn't notice it is an Apple Store. It was the old Carnegie Library built back in 1901. Went during a weekday at 1PM so there were more employees than customers. They have a gallery on the Top floor and basement. We walked there from our nearby hotel and I don't see any parking near the building.

B Dunnegan: Wasted so much time waiting for reps, while reps who claim they can’t help just stand around. How many reps do YOU see?? I get calls and emails on regular from business team yet when I come in store, none are available to help. Also—the store operation is inefficiently run. What should be pinging/cueing up clients at check in is a belaboring dog and pony show that passes you from one rep to another. Over it. As a small business owner, who was literally called and emailed every day by what was described as a small business support team at the Carnegie location has not produced one iota of assistance. Over it.

livingmytruth 2: Michael, Gunner and Taylor were absolutely amazing. This was by far the best Apple store i ever been in. As soon as i walked in the door i was greeted by Taylor and Michael. They made me feel at home. They answered all my questions and eased all my fears about this big new location. Then i met with Gunner ( who happens to be deaf) and he was absolutely a joy. He was efficient, fast and he really made me feel comfortable through my process of getting an new ipad. Way to go Apple, this is the kind of experience i am looking for

Daria Willis: The Apple Store was quite an experience! I loved it! The staff was wonderful! Knowledgeable, helpful and courteous! I had an appointment for a phone and I requested help with my Mac laptop. They took care of it, cleaned it up and now its almost like new even though it is 8 yrs old! Excellent!!!

Vinh Mai: Great layout, no pushy salespeople, very helpful staff. My guy Marcus was fantastic from beginning to me leaving with a new phone.

Charlie Olsen: Great service from the staff. Walked in and immediately had a staff member helping me and was out with my purchase in less than 15 minutes. Also the library building has a museum upstairs that’s really cool. 10/10 shopping experience.

Scott Denman: Was told to wait for help with an employee currently helping another customer. That customer was being a royal pain, but instead of noticing that I’ve been standing around for 30 minutes waiting, others who came to the store after me were being helped for the same thing I came in for… For a company that seems to care about its image, they are pretty horrible at customer service. On the plus side, they are very accommodating for employees with disabilities. Overall though they are pretty bad at letting people just stand around

Seva Narkute: I have received the best service at this Apple Store location. I highly recommend making an appointment before visiting as this beautifully located store stays busy, although the staff there has been extremely helpful and understanding even on the times when I showed up without an appointment. :)

Mauricio Pretto: I had one of the best experiences shopping in my life here The person that was helping me was death and had a interpreter in a FaceTime to help him. This is the true inclusion of technology. Amazing! I left crying of joy! Congratulations apple! This was incredible!
