    At least according to this article...

    Ohio.com - Bob Dyer: Those 'gifts' at Spencer's not for kids

    Last I checked...I don't recall seeing half the stuff in Spencers that Ambiance would sell...

    I understand that they are refering to it being not so "kid friendly", but to call it a porn store? What Spencers are they going to?

    Spencers sells the dumb softcore crap that no one but virgins buy.
    Rasberry lick it lotions , booby glitter and stuff. Lame.

    Only go there for the TF stuff, which I hope does'nt get pulled because of their new attention to porn relations

    Not really figures... They have Tshirts, Belt Buckles, Keychains, little nastalgic stuff. Just like the rest of the store. Spencers is nothing more than an oddball nastalgic store.

    Either way...My Spencers has a section on the side that has the "porn" things they speak of...they say in the article: Dildos, Vibrators, bondage stuff, really..the stuff they have hardly even classifies as soft core if you ask me...

    The line comparing to Ambiance is just rediculous. I will tell you the only few things that DO bother me about that store...the Tshirts they sell for pregnant teenagers like "I'm not fat, I'm knocked up", and stuff that relates to Twilight.

    I've heard that too. Many drug stores in Canada and Mexico sell OTC drugs incredibly cheap. It's like you could buy 50 bottles of Vicodin for less than ten bucks (May sound like a bit of an exaggeration but I'm just going by what I've heard.)
    Now if only I could find a damn brand of allergy medication that actually works. Everything from name brand to store generics has not worked a single bit, and every day I'm sneezing and coughing to the point where it's going to give me a heart attack.

    Spencer's sells TF stuff? Well this is new, usually when I walk in the first thing anyone sees is the 5 foot dong pinata hanging from the ceiling. I hope they cell Decepticon beltbuckles. I could wear it at work to show I'm a cashier you do not want to screw with :lolol

    I haven't been in Spencer's for years, literally. Everytime I see the Hollister wannabe crowd mingling around the outside, I get out of there.

    I used to go there a lot.
    When Hot Topic comes up empty for t-shirts or other things i want, i go there.

    and back around the late 90s and early '00s, they had things in there that i couldn't find anywhere else statewide.

    i got some killer Eddie (from Iron Maiden) figures for my best friend's tribute collection.
    but that softcore/tacky, dirty birthday stuff is lame with a side of loser-ness.

    i like the place....well i did till i saw this. lol.

    They do have some occasional horror novelties that are kind of cool, and that leg lamp that was in Christmas Story. Or giant Jason/Krueger statues

    Was also one of the only places to get those G1 keychains

    Every time I walk into a Spencers Gifts I always think of the same thing, "Ok, I get the joke."

    To be fair, I've seen Spencers selling an actual dildo, nothing anatomically correct but definitely an adult item... but what's the point of even complaining about it? If they marketed themselves as a kid-friendly store, yeah, I'd see the reason, but they really don't. It's like complaining about Victoria's Secret not being kid-friendly.

    Spencers has.. ahem.. a better selection than most stores. Every "specialty" store I've been to has.. uh.. devices the size of traffic cones. Nothing smaller.

    Spencers is also much cheaper and doesn't card you... so you know, if you need anything.

    Yeah, I never saw that they actually consider the story any kid friendly...if anything teenager friendly.

    As for Victorias Secret...oh man...a kid can learn all kinds of things...er...I mean, yeah, kid friendly it is not.

    Hell, on band trips when we stopped at malls to eat, Spencer's was a must stop before leaving.
    fart machines were cool back then.
