Einstein’s Customer Quotables

March 28, 2014

"Rolled in here for the 1st time today. WOW! Super convenient and fast. Guys were very nice. Yes, they did try to sell me a few things, but they were not pushy. I loved the fact that I did not have to get my baby out of the car. I got a paper and a soda, and was happy. The only thing that would make this place better is if they served alcohol.  LOL"
