Cheap Joe's Art Stuff has three physical locations, all of which are in North Carolina. Their three locations are in Asheville, Boone and Charlotte. As far as shipping goes, Cheap Joe's Art Stuff lists its shipping prices online, separated by how much a person spends. There are three tiers of shipping to choose from, including a Cheap Joe's "value tier," with reduced shipping costs. Free shipping is available through the "value tier" when a person spends more than $150.00, as of 2015.
Mister Art is a similar art supply store, offering discounts when compared to the regular retail price of many art supplies. However, this art supply store has several extras, including a price match guarantee and a special VIP membership. The price match guarantee rewards customers who find lower prices on eligible products with the difference between the two prices and a gift certificate. The special VIP membership program is a way to reward loyal customers by providing extra discounts on art supplies for members. The membership cost for this program is $25.00 annually and includes express handling of VIP members' orders.
