You really have to shop around to make sure you're getting the best. I wish they would show or let the website know what's out to buy before taking the trip out there. But still, I would like to know what they have in stock, before I drive out there.
If you get on their mailing list you get fantastic coupons monthly. Even though it is over an hour drive, I go several times a year to stock up on gifts and treats for myself!! The prices and selection are fabulous and the staff could not be nicer. I have been here at least forty times and never had a bad experience with the staff. To the contrary, they have always been very nice and gone out of their way to be helpful. If you are going, stop at Ninos for lunch..their chicken salad is awesome!

I'm disappointed to see the other review about the staff. I have never had an unpleasant experience with anyone in the store - everyone has always been extremely helpful and pleasant. This store is an excellent resource for great deals on gift items or presents for yourself! :) Posted by by PattyR110 at Citysearch on November 21, 2011. The store has great buys but you will have to bite your lip when it comes time to check out. I have been to very few stores that have such unfriendly salesclerks. I've made two trips to the store and drove quite a distance and they do not want to answer any questions or assist you. I didn't understand as they were very blantant that they did not want you to be there. However, if we aren't there and there are no sales, they would be out of a job. Both trips engaged two different sets of sales girls that were equally as rude. Posted by by taradeanne at Citysearch on September 30, 2011.

MOUNT PLEASANT — It wasn’t the original plan but it sounded like a good one: buy the empty Lenox Plant and turn it into an outlet where different glass companies and manufacturers could compete. On Friday afternoon, under sunny skies, many dignitaries and representatives celebrated the official opening of the Mount Pleasant Glass Center and the grand opening of the Jamestown Crystal Outlets. announced that it would no longer be able to operate the glass plant in Mount Pleasant. January of this year was the last time the plant would be in operation. According to John Skiavo, president and CEO of the Economic Growth Connection of Westmoreland (EGC), when the heard was released, his company and the Westmoreland County Industrial Development Corporation (WCIDC) immediately began to look for companies throughout the world that would be interested in purchasing and reopening the facility.
The reason for their desire to keep the facility operating was two-fold. They didn’t want 158 people who had been employed by Lenox to lose their jobs, and they wanted to continue utilizing the skills of those workers to their benefit. But finding someone to purchase the facility wasn’t to be. So, they bought it themselves, with the cooperation of the Lenox Corporation, and formed a partnership in the ownership and reopening of the facility, said Skiavo. The reopening took the form of an outlet for glass manufacturers to sell their wares and a place where glass manufacturers could still produce their product. Lenox agreed to keep their outlet store in the facility, giving other glass companies a reason to move their interests to the property. This opportunity led to the Jamestown Crystal Outlet. According to Bob Rifenburgh, president and COO of St.
George Crystal in Jeannette, the name for the outlets was after Jamestown, Va., where glass was first made in the United States. “This is our first outlet and we hope that more will follow,” said Rifenburgh. “I think this is extremely important for two reasons,” said state Sen.
