    Default Yes, we have a B&M store

    We get this request a lot, so I thought I'd respond here. Yes, we do have a B&M store. When we moved into our new location earlier this year, we made sure we had room for a walk-in store. Normal hours are 9:00 - 2:30 M-F. Evenings and weekends by appointment. Dee and Lisa can help with purchases, but Christine and I know the products the best. It's best to call to make sure Christine or I will be in the office. Our schedules vary each day.

    So if you're in the area stop on by at:

    5877 Pine Ave, Ste 220
    Chino Hills, CA 91709

    I dropped in yesterday to buy myself some Christmas presents: a Simpson Classic 2, Valobra stick, Alt Innsbruck, and a backup Speick splash. John wasn't in, so I missed meeting him. But it was great to see the brushes in person and pick out the one preferred. I also enabled a friend into buying some sticks and a blade sampler.

    Cool set up there, it's up stairs and is labeled West Coast Shaving. Don't do what I did and just walked into one of the other offices in the building. I forgot to tell you about that

    Hello All!

    I just thought I would share my great experience at LetterK's B&M West Coast Shaving Store in Chino Hills, Ca.

    I went on Wednesday, Dec 22, 2010 to buy my Christmas "gifts" from my wife. She gives me a nice amount to spend on whatever I want at Christmas, so I decided to get my shave den soaps for the year.

    I have to tell you that they have a very nice office, not huge, but right-sized for primarily a web business. I was helped by Lisa, who was VERY nice and accomodating. I wanted to smell, see a few different things, and she was really patient with me. I smelled most of DR Harris Offerings, and a few TOBS. I also sniffed the Alt Innsbruck, and a few Trumper scents.

    I finally chose a Trumper Violet Soap puck, DR Harris Arlington Soap, a Valobra Menthol (they were OOS of Almond), 4 blade banks, a razor for my wife, 100 SHARP blades to re-gift, a Valobra Stick, a Provence Sante Verlaine Soap Puck, a TOBS Shaving Shop Tub and a Proraso Sensitive Tub.

    If I would have had the funds I would have spent ALOT more there - as I write this I have my eye on a Shavemac #177 in Finest.

    I liked the familial style of the store, for example when the PC would not cooperate Lisa was able to call Christine who walked her through the sale. I even got some advice from Christine on which razor to buy for my wife, and got her a Merkur HD, (which she loves!).

    Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. I didn't feel pressured to finish my business quickly and was encouraged to "browse" what I had on my list. I would say though that if you do visit the B&M, make sure to have a list of items that you want to sniff, & see. Not everything is displayed, so a list was invaluable for me, and as patient as Lisa is with you, you should reciprocate with her during the cash-out.

    Make sure to call before you go, as things can get a little hectic around there during boxing / shipping...also they may be at lunch, so be sure to call first.

    All in all it was a great outing and I wound up with virtually everything I wanted, except the Valobra Almond. Great store, Great service, and a fun place to visit that has almost everything under one roof.

    Cheers!
    Matt
