First walking into Founders, you get the feeling of an old train depot, which carries over to the overall busy atmosphere. Although it is busy, it is also very comfortable.

The staff was busy, but handled the clientele at a very impressive pace. They were very well educated and good at suggesting items based on what we were used to, and on pairings. Great at offering suggestions and recommending smaller sizes for trial.

Went with a friend from Texas. We were both very impressed. Will definitely be back again.
