The Travel Store
Time Out says
Whether you’re traveling by train, plane or automobile, this all-encompassing shop has luggage, accessories and commuter-friendly toiletries to make any trip feel first class. Owner Moshe Mittelman, whose father ran and operated Luggage Plus on the Lower East Side for 25 years, runs this Williamsburg shop (formerly named For the Go). You won’t find much brand-name luggage here, but there are plenty of affordable and reliable pieces, including Eagle Creek wide-body carry-ons ($180) with padded handles, Atlantic rolling uprights ($80) that weigh just 6.5 pounds and Travelpro duffels ($60) made from water- and stain-resistant polyester. Innovative items such as Kuhi Comfort adjustable neck pillows ($40) that support both sides of your head and inflatable VinniBags ($27), which prevent breakage of wine bottles and other fragile items in transit, make getting to your destination more enjoyable.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff! Huge selection of travel gadgets and brand name luggage at great deals.
Update - My online shopping experience with Forthego.Com wasn't exactly a smooth ride. There was quite a bit of unnecessary frustration because there was no way to track my order. None of the phone numbers listed on the Yelp and their website was working. Fortunately, after nearly 5 days, I finally got an email from them informing that my order wass shipped. Today I got a call from their rep named Moshe to make sure that I receive my shipment and to explain to me that their phone system (both store and for the website customer support) was down for few days. I do appreciate them taking their online business and customers seriously enough to call me and explain to me about their phone problem. However, it would be really helpful if he could email me and let me know about their phone system issues sooner. That would save me lots of agony. Anyhow, the shipment arrived today as scheduled and was well-packaged. Most important of all, I now have what I need for my upcoming trip to Iceland. Thanks.
Buyer beware! No luggage after 12 days, no contact (I can't leave a message on their phone, which they never answered, because their voice mail box is full), no response to web site inquiry, and no response to e-mail inquiry. Very disappointing, loss of more than $100, and no gift under the tree for my wife. As I said, Buyer beware! (don't)
I have every reaason to think this online store is a fraud. I even have a good reason to believe other reviews about this store on http://Yelp.com is not legit - may be written by friends and family. I am not sure if anyone had used For The Go's website to order anything. I placed an order on Saturday 10/12/13 and all I got was a confirmation of the order and I found out they've already charged my credit card. Since I had not heard anything for 3 days, I decided to call the number provided through their website. The guy who answered the phone (said his name is Marshall? Marsha??) didn't announce or greet with the company name. For a second I thought I had a wrong number. Then he told me he will call me back and let me know if the item is actually in stock. My question was, "IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW WHETHER YOU HAVE IT IN STOCK OR NOT, WHY DID YOU CHARGE MY CREDIT CARD ALREADY??? Giving the benefit of doubt, I waited for him to call. He didn't call back. In fact, I tried calling the number provided through the website and also their store number, after carefully calculated time zone difference, at least 8 times each for 2 days in the row. NO ONE ANSWERS THE PHONE! Even during their so-called store business hours!! I seriously need the travel adapter kit for my upcoming trip. If you do not have it, please call or email me back with your inventory check result and PLEASE CREDIT MY MONEY BACK TO MY CARD. I will try again tomorrow. If not, I will file a complaint through business bureau and also report this as a fraud to my credit card company. I've done lots of online shopping and this by far is the worst experience I've ever had.
I know them and i have had great experiences with their service, I did not know that they are moving
