Thread: Shopping at West Coast Shaving

  1. #1

    Default Shopping at West Coast Shaving

    Ok, so I'm in SoCal for business and had the day off today. Given my travel items for shaving were way below par, I decided to look around to see what venue was near me. Amazingly enough, WCS wasn't too far for me (a little over an hour); so I figured I'd drive over and pick up some essentials.

    For those who have doubts: they're real, live people! Their shop is on the 2nd floor of a small commercial building, but it serves as an efficient storefront counter and stockroom with a little office space to boot. Lili is indeed a real person and as friendly as they get.

    Now mind you, my intent was to get a travel shave brush and some cream. About $140 later I had to leave, as "I should try this. I should try this too." was taking over. A dangerous place to stop by if you have obsessive supply acquisition issues. Lili was very pleasant and gave me the tour of the shelves, let me smell practically every shave product in they stocked, answered all manner of questions (and asked her own in order to help), and gave me a slew of little samples of things in addition to what I actually bought.

    Class act for the folks at WCS. I'll have no issues with ordering from them in the future. Fantastic service!

    P.S. For those expecting shipments, they had an entire batch of items packaged up and waiting for UPS shipment for your grimy little paws very soon!

    I might have to make the trip myself, not to far from San Diego.

    If they had anything like that kind of storefront where I live, I'd probably go nuts!

    That could get out of control in a hurry, it's a good thing I'm no longer in SD! I'll need to check it out the next time I head to SoCal though...

    I will definitely check that place out the next time I'm down there. I lived near there for so long and used to commute by it every day, but had no idea it was there. It wasn't until after moving that I got into shaving.

    Wait until you get your order up to $80 and shipping is free. I get fast service, even in Alabama.

    I was there about 2 months ago and had a very similar experience. They were very helpful. I even took some pictures of the store. :)
    Why shave once with three blades, when you can shave three times with one blade.

    Worked for about two months within twenty minutes of wcs. Three shopping trips. One great thing was that I wanted a Simpsons brush and I could see them and compare them side by side. Lili was very helpful and patient unwrapping about 8 brushes for me to compare. They are really good people.
