Lehman's Experience
« on: June 04, 2014, 09:20:04 AM »

At the end of April I added two oil lamps to my preps.   

https://www.lehmans.com/



I filled them shortly after they arrived, set them on the shelf.   I noticed recently that one of them had lost some oil, only about half full now!   I pulled it down, looked at the puddle of oil pooled underneath it and scratched my head.   It is GLASS, I thought, how is it leaking without being completely broken?    It indeed had a crack and a slow leak.

I went online, opened up a customer support chat, gave the admin my order #.   She said they'd mail me a new one out right away!   Whoohoo, that was easy.....but not the best part.

She explained they do not want the broken one back at all....keep it, throw it away.   So now I will have a new lamp soon, and replacement parts...burner, wick, and globe, all to use if something else breaks on these.

These guys have great customer service.

Lehman's is awesome.

And yeah, save the parts you can on the broken one and you'll be half way to another lamp.

A year or so ago, I was fortunate to get (2) oil lamps at the recycle center.some lady was getting rid of---Had Diesel fuel in them & stinking.one needed the Mantle for it..called Lehman's ordered them & a new chimney now they both work. Lehman's is a great store ordered a few other things Only They sell.

I got my replacement oil lamp Saturday.   Opened and filled it last night.   Looks great!   Very happy customer.

Nyah-Nyah!!! Lehman's is only a 45 min. drive through some pretty countryside for me. When the Mrs. turns to you with a glimmer in her eye and whispers in your ear, "Let's go to Lehman's.", you know you've got a keeper.

My wife and I visited the store last summer while on vacation.  The place deserves an afternoon to wonder through all the items.  We had a wonderful time there, though it was an expensive afternoon!!! We cant wait to plan another trip to go back again.

So far, I've only been to the main store. They have a working hardware store and [I believe] an outlet store in the vicinity, but after an afternoon in the main store, we're usually too tired [and too broke] to go elsewhere.  :(

Oh, and Cylon, they have a catalog and do ship internationally, though freight charges to Oz might be a touch high. :jaw-drop:
On the other side of the coin, you could corner the national market on Bacon Soda.  :clap:

Lehman's outlet store is right across the parking lot from the main store.

I'll be sure to check it out the next time I'm there. Oh, and they've got some great Brats in their snack bar. As an aside, as long as you're in the neighborhood, check out the grocery / general store next door.

Just swung thru Lehmans today after a couple days in Cleveland, picked up a few things.
Came home and read your post Soup, lol. Now that I know, I'll stop by the general store next
time up there.
I will likely go up again before Christmas and get a few gifts there.
BTW, the outlet store has 15% off all items Tuesdays and Thursdays, at least currently.

best wishes,   Montag

Just occurred to me that I've not seen this mentioned here, so I'll add it:

If you travel to Lehman's, be careful driving through all of Amish country.
You  *WILL*  encounter Amish in buggys, Amish on bicycles, Amish walking on the roadside, etc.
This is hilly country, there are many blind hilltops and curves on these county roads so please
be cautious.....    Montag

RE: Montag ^^

Oh Hell Yes! Amish Country is no place to drive if you are in a hurry. Most of the Amish buggies I've seen have dad, mom, and a passel of kids in them which could turn a serious accident into a real tragedy. Also, bring your camera with you, but DON'T take pictures of the people in the funny clothes. They resent it, and rightfully so - they're human beings with their own lifestyle, not actors or curiosities.

It also helps if you can talk horses or farming, or aren't afraid to ask respectful questions.

Lehman's is an experience and well worth a day trip. Or several trips.
