At Remember When a relaxing shopping experience has always been an important concept.  We feel that shopping done well is an experience in and of it self.  To encourage this Kerri and the dealers try to always provide refreshments for our customers and guests.  They are located at the Tea Room to the left of the rest rooms off the courtyard area. Feel free to help yourself to the free tea and coffee and have a seat and relax for a while during your visit in the mall. If you need to fortify your selves for more shopping there are also cupcakes and deserts for sale as well.  Tea Room Details
