When I shop, I usually don’t have time to go from one place to another to find the products I need. One-stop department stores are the only way that I can get my shopping done in the time I have. Online shopping, while not as much of a hassle physically, can often be even more time consuming than going out. The sheer enormity of the online market makes finding the right product at the right price a little bit like looking for a needle in a haystack. Thankfully, CSN Stores offers the perfect solution. This amazing conglomerate of over 200 stores offers the same type of one-stop-shopping that I tend to favor at one super-convenient website. Everything from dog beds to dining room sets can be found at CSN Stores!
I was delighted when I was given a chance to spend a gift certificate on any one item from CSN Stores and review the experience. I immediately began perusing the website looking for the perfect item. Browsing through the products at CSN Stores can be an all-day experience in itself, so having some initial direction is definitely preferable. I decided to look for a great new toy for my children.
The convenient categories on the website are a great way to find the perfect product. I started by clicking on the Baby & Kids section and then choosing the Toys subcategory. The huge selection of toys is further organized based on their uses. Toy Vehicles, Building Sets and Train Tables all have separate categories to make finding the right section a little bit easier.
I initially thought that I would look for a child’s picnic table for Zackary and Benjamin, since the one we have is starting to break. I found an adorable table from American Plastic Toys, but when I clicked on the thumbnail to read about the features, I was introduced to another amazing characteristic of the CSN Stores website. Below the item I had chosen was a collection of related items that caught my eye. I immediately fell in love with an adorable Adirondack Set that featured two chairs with a connecting table and an umbrella, but my son’s eye went instantly to a small play kitchen. His vote won the day, and I ordered the American Plastic Toys My Very Own Kitchen.
The play kitchen arrived within a week and was delivered straight to the front door. When I opened the box and saw the many pieces that needed to be assembled, I decided to save the project until my husband returned home from work. That night, with the kids tucked into bed, we sat down together and assembled the kitchen.
My husband loves to put things together, so he did the majority of the assembly while I followed along with the instructions so that I could let him know what size of screw to use or where the stickers were placed. Within about an hour, the kitchen was fully assembled and looked fabulous. When Zackary awoke the next morning, he went straight to the play kitchen and spent the majority of the day creating imaginary culinary masterpieces for me to sample.
Overall, I was very impressed with my experience with CSN Stores. The company’s quick service and good communication made online shopping both easy and fun. The hardest part about the experience was deciding what to buy, because the selection was unbelievable! I loved the fact that so many products featured free shipping for both the United States and Canada, and I was blown away by the fantastic value. If you need a great item at a great price, CSN Stores is the best way to find what you’re looking for!
