Pen Boutique

Small but well-stocked shop that specializes in pens and also sells notebooks. It has been in business for about 15 years. It carries a large amount of brands, from cheap Preppies and Varsities to Caran D'Ache and Pen of the Year Graf von Faber-Castell. The store is across the street from Columbia Mall and is easy to miss, but popular among the local pen crowd. There are often sales.

Dromgooles

This is a family-owned store that has a huge selection with none of the arrogance one often encounters in stores selling high-end goods. Larry is a true pen guy(evidenced by his permanently ink-stained fingers) whose priority is customer satisfaction. The first time I walked into his store, I was a mechanical watch guy who knew nothing about pens.
