NOT an appealing, inviting appearance... but you must go check out this store. The selection and Super Reasonable Prices are unbeatable. I just bought a beautiful New Faux Marble top Counter top Dining set at this store. I loved shopping here. Family owned and operated, the family is so friendly and helpful. The young man who delivered it was courteous and very careful I will go back tomorrow and get other things I need. I loved the "Family" feel there. The personnel and selection makes up for the appearance of the store . I would recommend J & S to everyone,, no matter your budget.
I have shopped at Encore for years and will continue to do so. The clothes are priced well, especially when their original price is 1/2 off, but occasionally I find stains, snags etc., so look over the clothes carefully. The staff is a mixed bag. One of the ladies remembers my name, and the style/brand of clothing I prefer. She'll go dig through things to find what I need. Another lady barely offers to help, even when I am walking around w 10 things hanging over my arm. I can deal with this - it's a resale store and I am getting some beautiful clothes for a bargain!
I have shopped both Second Looks stores in Austin since just after they opened years ago. I recently had the opportunity to shop the San Antonio store, which is the Original store. It is outstanding. The quality of Merchandise is awesome and the selections are even greater. This store in San Antonio is above and beyond the Stores in Austin. I will drive the 140 miles to San Antonio to shop this store and reap the savings. One truly satified customer!
