I was in heaven when we walked into Forbes Candy. We decided to stop on our way home from the Beach. There are every type of saltwater taffy you could want. Homemade fudge, candies, and souvenirs. The prices are really good, and they even have coupon books out front so you can get an even better deal. They have a large fake horse out front, and my kids took turns climbing on and getting their pictures taken. It was a wonderful store to explore with the family.
Gateway Cinema makes it a pleasure to go to the movies again. They don't over charge you like most other movie theatres. You and your whole family can go and see a movie without breaking the bank. The movies are current ones too. My son and his girlfriend just went to see X-Men. Although it is an older cinema, it is well maintained.
Nite Dreams is a very interesting store. In the front it is just basic items. Oils, nighties ect. Things for married couples. In the back is where the more racy items are. Imagine my surprise when I went in there with my husband..lol. If you are in the market for some marital enhancements, this is the place to go.
I recently bought a new living room set from Furniture & More. I have to say that the staff was really great, and they worked to give me the best deal. They were having a big sale, and were willing to bargain with me. The furniture has held up really great so far. The only downfall I see with this store is that they want to charge $50 just to deliver your furniture right down the road.
Sawyers House of Furniture is a nice store. They carry a lot of different items. The biggest problem with them, is they are a good bit higher in price than other stores. The staff is nice. When I went in a few months ago, one of the staff members worked with me trying to find me the best deal. Even though I didn't end up buying from there that day, the customer service will have me consider them again.
Miss Kittys Olde Time Photos was a pretty cool place. We stopped there on our way home from the beach Memorial Day weekend. I had always wanted one of these old time pictures. Although the set was great, and the props and costumes wee awesome, the staff left a lot to be desired. The main girl was rude, and the other girl didn't know what she was doing. Also, the girl lied to us, and tried to give a story about how scanning the picture into the computer would ruin the original picture. We paid $50 to have a family of 4 photographed as Pirates. Yet, the sales girl kept pushing extras, even though we made it clear we were not spending any more money. On the plus side, the picture came out wonderful.
This store is really big, and lots of fun to look through. I only gave it 3 stars, because it is a little high on the prices. We stopped here on our way home from the beach Memorial Day. We spent over an hour looking thru the store. The staff are very friendly. One staff member spent a lot of time with us, teaching us how to use the devil stix. They have a wide variety of items, but are defiantly priced for out of town tourists.
The Pasquotank Animal Hospital is the only place we will take our pets. Sometimes you know as soon as you walk into a place if you are comfortable there. This is one of those places. I trust the staff to take good care of my animals. They are very nice, and are animal lovers.
Luthers Greenhouse is a great place to visit anytime of the year. I love that they hold things for the kids each season. I have bought lots of plants there. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They also have clearance stuff, which is awesome. Any of your gardening needs, or flower needs, can be filled at Luthers. My mom got a Lemon tree for very little money there last fall. Luthers is her favorite greenhouse too.
I can't say enough nice things about Alexanders Mater Care Appliance Center. We have used them on several occasions. When we first moved here, our washing machine broke. They sent a workman out as soon as I called. The prices were fair and the staff are very nice. We have returned several times since. We even bought a nice used flat top stove from them.
