A caution for younger ones – Having worked at this store I feel compelled to write a caution to those who take their children in to this store. First, the store has alot of glassware, cups, ashtray, etc. within easy reach and the aisles are narrow. You will pay for what you break, they are strict about this. But the one thing that I found very upsetting about this store was the items found in the gag department. Two items - a parrot that spews "unpolitically correct" filth, and an even worse middle finger that says things you would never want a child to hear. And it is impossible to avoid hearing if you are in that part of the store. It is motion activated. If you have young children and do not wish them to hear this kind of filth, it would not be a good idea to take them in this store. While I was there I did what I could to warn parents, but it is a very busy store. Though there is quite a bit I could say, I am going to leave it at a caution. I would hope more people would complain about these two items being in the public, especially since they have a separate "Naughty Town" now where they could easily be placed, but not many people did unfortunately.
The customer service is HORRIBLE – I called into the store because there was a rare piece of Vegas material I wanted, and they held it there exclusively. I was greeted, or rather barked at, by a woman who I was later informed was the owner. I explained my story about my piece and was told they had it in stock. When I arrived from a 45 minute drive, not only did they NOT HAVE IT IN STOCK, but I was greeted by the laziest, rudest salespeople I'd ever come across. I understand we all have our bad days, but this is NOT a place I will come back to. I did NOT spend my money there, and I hope no one else has to experience horrific customer service like that. Whoever wrote the comment below mine probably worked for the store because not ONE person there was friendly, including the Owner, and if you can't get respect from them, who can you get it from??
shopping hysterics! – Every time I go to Las Vegas I stop at the World's Largest Gift shop on the corner of the Strip and Sahara. They have a wonderful selection of turquoise jewelry, Minnetonka moccasins, t-shirts!!! and of course my favorites: handbags and totes. There is always something new to discover kitsch-wise. Yes there are lots of Las Vegas souvenir kinds of stuff -- but the dice clocks? the fabuous t-shirts? Even Bride and Groom T-shirts and flip flops that say just married when you walk thru the sand, you can own your own personal "welcome to Las Vegas" sign that is also a lamp. Totally cool stuff. Wouldn't miss it and HIGHLY recommend stopping and shopping!
Repulsive store – I came to this shop, advertised by its huge signs of being the largest gift shop in town; Indeed it is, it's also repulsive for so many reasons.
Where to start, you open the doors and are greeted with a repulsive security guard, if not multiple ones, who will check your bags and receipt - even though he watched you pay for the same items when you walk out the door. Not only do they require you to check your bags with them, if you carry a kid in a stroller you have to leave them with the security as well. So don't bring your kids, they'll assume your kids are thieves and follow you around as well.
I mean they've got it all:
1. Creepy old store
2. Parts from other, creepy old stores
3. Stuff being sold for multiples of what it's worth
4. Repulsive security guards
5. Repulsive sales people
6. Repulsive staff
I could go on and on, but even some of the stuff they sell is repulsive, and if that isn't enough, well the parking lot is repulsive as well.
It's the quintessential palace of fun, cheap Vegas souvenirs. – In Short
It's the self-proclaimed "world's largest" gift shop containing all kitschy Las Vegas-related merchandise. An entire corner of the immense store is devoted to cedar souveneirs, including salt & pepper shakers, curio boxes and even a cedar birdhouse that says "Las Vegas Bed and Breakfast." In one fell swoop, customers can outfit themselves in a giant foam cowboy hat, a bowling shirt with metallic flames, a Las Vegas fanny pack and even a t-shirt bearing the logos of several hotels in puff paint and accented with rhinestones.
