This place is a blast. The only thing I don't like is how the workers follow people around. I guess they have a lot of problems with theft. This place reminds me of a mashup (literally) of Woolworth's and McCrory's!!! A must stop at for any visitor!!!

My Dad and grandfather were "rockhounds".I'm 57 and I remember going there when I was less than ten years old, so that means that place is about 50 years old at least.There is no way those are the original owners.Its a relic from the 60's, back when rockhounding was big.

There's a place you can go if you like rockhounding and you don't mind driving a bit.

There are a few in the Lake Forest Shopping Center, a strip mall on N Pleasantburg.

Suburban Paint
African Jamaican Caribbean Foods Fish & Meat Market
ReBoot
Some new natural kids store I can't remember the name of
A chocolate place I also don't know the name of
Byrd's Upholstery
Lake Forest flooring has the best price on oak floors
A place that makes suits (never been in there)
A barbershop
A dog groomer

This strip mall is pretty darn ugly, but it must have reasonable rents for all these local businesses.
