I've got business in northern NJ this evening, and luckily my Google map route takes me right past the Bridgewater LEGO store, so I'm going to stop in. It'll probably be just a run-in/run-out kind of thing, so I can take a photo of the AFOL display window and probably fill a small PaB cup, but I live down by Philly, so I've never been to that store. I probably should be getting ready soon since I have to iron my shirt before I go.

On my trip last night, I was a little disappointed. They didn't have a community display window. They did have the new Orthanc set up, which I drooled over for a bit. I was in a rush though since I was on my way to on evening event for work, so I just grabbed a small PaB cup and filled it with trans clear cheese slopes, a few trans orange cheese slopes, and 1x2 tiles in lime green and purple (no clue what I'll do with those, I just don't have much in those colors, so figured I'd grab them). I also got a BrickJournal. The build-a-fig station looked like it had pretty generic stuff, so I didn't bother (though maybe if I'd dug through I might have found something interesting).

As for the small cups being better value than the big ones,that theory is based on price per part, assuming that the part you want to get fits well in both cups. For example, if you were buying cheese slopes, you can get a better value with two small cups than one big cup. If you're buying 1x16 bricks or horses, then the bigger cup probably is your only option.

I have found the store associates to be very friendly and helpful at the Kenwood store. If you know you're coming or thinking about coming, you can always let me know a few days in advance and I can check for you. From what I've seen, the store doesn't change up a ton and I can take a look for you if there's something in particular you're looking for. I live about 35 minutes from the store, but I work about 15 minutes away and any excuse to head over there during lunch (assuming I can break away for a few minutes) is ok by me.
It didn't seem terribly crowded nor populated (Cincinnati is incredibly small, say to, San Diego
