They only accept cash and debit. but that's good enough for me... and I won't break my maximum charge on my debit in there anyway, looking at the price of things !! :-))

But beware !!!! NEVER EVER go in there the week before Halloween 9unless you want to buy a costume and you're late, of course!)... Cause that's a nightmare !!!! SOOOOOO many people it's insane !
Other than this, it's usually a bliss and you get out with way more things that you were intending to buy at the beginning :-)
And then, after a few more efforts, you can proudly display your kids new cloths on your blog.... isn't this amazing ?!!? :-)
