Do we have an extensive list of b&m shops somewhere? My search doesn’t reveal too many. I am always looking for a stop to make on a road trip to break up the ride.

Iwan Ries in Chicago was my home store for a while and it is legendary.

I saw that Boswells has two locations. Is one better than the other? One is in Chambersburg PA the other is in Alexandria PA

Uhle’s in Milwaukee is going to be a stop for me sometime soon (hoping to catch a baseball game up there this summer).

Please feel free to list your favorites below. I will see if I can make a list and maybe even organize it by state or region if we get enough of them!
