This place is amazing! It's a UPS Acces Point with book store and lounge. You can pick up so many of your holistic needs while you pick up your UPS Package. I came to meet a friend to discuss some business and was able to collect sage, coconut oil, Apple juice, books for knowledge and so much more. I plan to come back for sure for some of the classes as well as host my own book signing. This is a great place for relaxation and education.
