Emphasize What’s Important
My first impression of is it is an attempt to be like,, and other dot.coms. The only people that are concerned with whether a business has a physical location are those that have an interest in being touchy-feely. The general population realize that what they want are great prices.

Consistent Linking
Kevin needs to have his links consistent on each and every page. On some of the pages his categories are not there. I had to back page a long while to get back to it.

Reorganize For Clarity
You may need rename or rearrange things a bit. For instance
– Logon item in top menu could have been called Login
– Sales item in top menu could have appeared before Shopping Cart

Reorganize Links To Grab Attention
On the whole I think the site is laid out well, is functional and simple, however there are a few niggles that I have about it. The site loads nice and quickly and only needs a few minor changes.

Fix Confusing Elements
I have been reading DevPro for a while and saw some of these page reviews, and thought I’d like to get my sites in there for review at some stage, but decided I’d better do some reviews .. tit for tat and all that.

Retool Navigation
On first glance, and during the initial loading of the site, (approx 1 minute) the “left column” overlaps onto the main body of the page, which was a little disconcerting for about a minute or so (Looking at the site through a 56Kbs modem connection) but then pops into place with no overlaps once fully loaded. That was a relief! Once all the java is loaded moving around your site is pretty quick.
