Actually, I just checked the website for 7 Star. That WAS the store I went to. I don't mean to badmouth them, but I can say for sure that they ONLY had Discraft and Innova and didn't seem to care when I asked about other brands.
Well you did go in November, their stocked up during the summer, but like I said it gets picked over rather quickly. There nice guys, once you get to know them they help you out a lot. Check back in the spring/summer and youll be pleasantly surprised. There is also the 7-11 on 26 and Mound that has a pretty decent selection of discs, but I believe it's only Innova/Discraft.

I was at CJ's this past weekend and GL was marked $21.99, and Gateway putters were $12.99 - I don't know how reasonable those prices are!

Beer and discs!

I have long desired to open a retail store that sells homebrew supplies AND discs.

First off, I love CJ's. Seems like they are invested in the scene and work to stock new stuff as it comes out.

That said, your post reminded me of a conversation I had with a buddy of mine this past weekend after a visit. Did they raise their prices?

Sorry this is thread drift, but I'm curious if anyone else noticed.

P.s. Choice thread!

I know a lot of places have raised their prices on discs in that past year. Wouldn't be surprised.

Guess those "meh" stores belong since they are close to courses:

Starr Market: (1/2 milewest of Starr-Jaycee Park)
1806 West 13 Mile Road
Royal Oak, MI 48073
(248) 549-2228

Six & Park Party Store: (Northville Rd & and 6 Mile, 1/2 mile south of Cass Benton Hills DGC)
17071 Northville Road
Northville, MI 48167
(248) 349-4640

A public bathroom would be nice, too. Browsing plastic seems to have a 'bookstore effect' on me, conjuring out of the ether a vicious need to take a dump. I guarantee I would have bought more plastic there over the years if I hadnt had to rush out on a race with the devil to the one-holer at Hudson.

On a positive, they did have Bell's Hopslam in stock this past weekend.

Thanks for the remind While they don't have a very large collection of discs, they do have a select few with the Bell's logo on them and I need to pick one up for my collection.

I could second that, would be nice to have a frozen Icee to sip on while shopping in the disc aisle. Any excuse to play the Mills and swing by CJ's works for me.

Great thread, appreciate the shared knowledge.
