This shop caters to the Mason Gross School of the Arts and all the students who are taking photography there. The staff here is very low key, friendly, and knowledgeable. They won't try to push you products that you don't want, and it is perfectly fine to just go in and ask some questions. Product wise, they have the newest models of cameras and lenses, and used, older student cameras. Here, you will also find all the stuff you need for your darkroom, storage, and display.
What to pay: The prices here are average. This is a privately owned store, so they can't afford the huge blow-out sales that a chain store would. However, this is a specialty store, so there is a lot of stuff here that you will not find at your local electronics super-giant.
In this store you will find everything you ever needed and more. Everything is 99 Cents or less, hence the name, 99 Cent Dreams. This store is fantastic - from toiletries and gift wrap, to cleaning supplies and tools, it has it all. It is a favorite with the college students around here, for obvious reasons. It is right on George Street between Bayard and Paterson Streets.
Located at the base of the train station, this place is right in the middle of New Brunswick, so it's very convenient to get flowers for girlfriends. This shop is cheap and has very nice seasonal potted plants, and always very nice flower arrangements.
Thomas Sweets is an ice cream store, and Next Door is a chocolate and gift store. Here, you can get chocolate dipped strawberries, and other nice gifts for the girls you like.
