Fabulous service for glass tabletops

"To the editor:


'Support your local merchants.' It’s kind of an old cliché. In a world of mega stores and the Internet some of the old adages seem to ring hollow. Well, not this one.


This morning my key broke in my office door rendering the lock inoperable. I was locked out of my own workplace with clients scheduled to start arriving within an hour.


Now, you see, I had bought my aluminum office door from local merchants, Nelson Glass, years ago. And they have serviced the door for me a couple of times over the intervening period. When I walked into Nelson Glass’s Spring Street facility and explained my crisis two craftsmen were immediately dispatched to extract my damaged lock and install a new one within minutes. What could have been a major inconvenience ended up being nothing more than a lesson in the virtue of patronizing our neighbors.


By the way, I have always found Nelson Glass prices to be very reasonable validating another cliché that you always get the best for less in Princeton."

"How lucky are we to have a neighborhood store that knows your name and gives you personal attention. When my two year old twin grandchildren broke the glass window near where they play, I called Nelson Glass and cried, "HELP!". Alice sent someone over within 20 minutes (and it was at the end of the day) and took care of the problem. Everyone there treats you with a friendly smile and attempts to meet your needs, whatever they may be."

Alice and Robbie have always been super helpful and accessible, and when I had an emergency with a door a couple years ago, all I had to do was pick up the phone and they were there to help me. Thanks Nelson Glass!"

— Kyle B.



“We started using Nelson Glass 26 years ago when we moved to Princeton in 1993. They’ve done a wide variety of glass projects for us: custom irregular shaped tempered outdoor glass wrought iron table tops, interior tempered glass table and furniture tops, replacement vanity bevelled mirrors, and of particular note, over a dozen large custom tempered glass thermal pane window units, some of them irregular shaped and 9’ tall. Many of these units are now over 20 years old and the thermal seals are still good; a testament to the quality of the suppliers Nelson Glass insists on for these products. I have never found their pricing excessive. But far more important, their breadth of experience, expertise, attention to detail and level of service are truly outstanding. Recommended, to say the least!”
