I bought my reconditioned refrigerator there. Alan Crane is the owner, a great vendor, in my experience.

Note: If you see anything that looks like a valve stem, don't turn it. Not even a little bit. You'll be going blind allright. Ammonia gas stings like crazy.
If they had the Dumb A-- of the month award five years ago I would have been at the top of the list.
Unquestionably the most unpleasent emergency room I have ever had.
