Treasure what you have! Ali's has been a steady presence for many decades, and they continue to be a valuable stop-spot for any scrounging trip. This is even more true with the demise of Weird Stuff and HSC.

Their customer service is still top-notch, and the store still has enough variety to keep any hardcore scrounger poking around for at least 2-3 hours. Like any surplus place, though, it's still subject to the ebb-and-flow of what the owner can find to resell. Your best bet is to be a regular. Check in with them at least a couple of times a month, if you can.
