Hi, have you guys heard of Steve's corner Store? It's a new online store I found that sells American stuff to residents of Japan. It's at http://www.stevescornerstore.com. They have all sorts of snacks, deodorants, and even underwear!

What a great site! I am going to place an order there today, thanks so much for letting me know about it.

Well, with FBCUSA, you have to order most items by the case. Who needs a whole case of toothpaste? And Expat Express has a minimum order, plus they seem very impersonal.

Not everything is by the case at FBC. Bit confusing with the two "stores", but it's there.
Also, they now have www.fbcexpress.com for small quantities & fast delivery. Haven't studied it, but must be more expensive.

Expat Express impersonal? While it's true that they are located overseas and can't come around for a cup of tea, I have been extremely pleased to find freebies thrown in with my order (which arrives within 5 days!). I am not affiliated with them in any way, but have been ordering from them for years and am quite happy.

I tried looking at the above mentioned, stevescornerstore.com and it's "not found". Does anyone else see it?

I just got the same message. It could be a server problem. I know that my own store has disappeared on occasion when the host crashed and once when I was switching to a new one.
I'd suggest giving it a day or two and then try again.

I went to the site about a month ago and couldn't connect to it either. At the time I just assumed it was a server problem but maybe it has closed? Has anyone ordered from there recently?
