What makes a good yarn store?

This is a serious question for the (two?) readers of my blog. What makes a yarn store a good yarn store? What can make it exceptional?

Feel free to comment or to send me email at: ddancer2 AT

Thanks all!

accessible location and hours. employees who know about knitting and about their stock, enough to answer technique, substitution, pattern, and other relevant questions that their customers might have. those are the things that matter most to me--everything else is extra, though it's nice to have beautiful things in stock, a wide selection, comfortable seating and lighting, and a web site.

good employees who know how to do all the things to do with yarn should you need help. Wide selection and price range (I think price range is very important especially when just starting out on a yarn craft) good hours and location and classes.

A good yarn store is one that has loads of good quality products and a very friendly, HELPFUL, knowledgable (knit and crochet) cache of employees.

So - I agree with the other things that have been posted thus far.

Employees who are welcoming to everyone and treat inexperienced knitters the same way they treat experienced knitters and treat new customers the same way they treat returning customers. (Assuming they treat the experienced repeaters well.)
