This petsmart just opened early in 2006. They are clean, very new and provide most of the need for your pet, including pets hotel (boarding).
The store also give a parking validation when you park in the building. The parking entrance is in Bradley Blv.
If you live in the neighbourhood, ocassionally you will receive some discount coupon.
PROS: clean and easy parking
This store is located in downtown Bethesda but not in the most strategic for all the famous restaurants. However, for serious asian (read chinese) furniture fans, this is a place to go. Beside 1 hour time limit for parking on the side street of Wisconsin Ave, there is no other disadvantage for this location. There are many walking distance assigned parking, if you go across the street from the store, please see http://www.bethesda.org/parking/parkinginfo.htm for parking map.
The price is considerably reasonable, especially if you compare the price for the furniture in flea market area in the next block of Wisconsin Ave. You will find this place is relatively inexpensive.
Currently, I heard that the shop lease will be ended in Fall 2006. I hope that the owner consider to renew it. It is a great store, it's a sunken jewel in the midst of luxury of Bethesda area.
PROS: Many different collection of Chinese furniture and decor
CONS: limited parking, there are many walkable distance assigned parking though
It's a nice place to find some Japanese groceries and you can have some meals as well while you are shopping. It is not a big place, but yet enough to find some Japanese groceries. As most Japanese owned shop, they don't speak very well English.
PROS: There is a parking building near by
CONS: If you buy too many stuff, parking is limited in front of the shop.
I was looking for a new used car. One of the private seller told me about this place. The location is really difficult to find as it seems like in a complex of run down junk yard business. I took my old car there and they took care the car well with a very reasonable price of service.
When my current car was 30k, I took it to local dealer shop for service, in less than 60 days after the service I got check engine light on. It cost me $800 after 2 times go back and forth and most of these cost are the labour hour cost.
But when my car was 40k miles, I took it to Ernie's for the service, it cost me only $40. However, they didn't give me information on what individual service they did.
I hope they can really compete with those big player, as I am sure their mechanics are very good. I heard good things about them. So far, now in 47k, my car is still in good conditions without any problem.
So absolutely, I will recommend Ernie's to everyone.
In Feb 2006, I lost my father. I called Discount Travel KITA. The officer give me the best service I ever receive from a travel agent and I received my ticket the next day (as I requested) delivered to my home. The rate is verry reasonable, the arrangement is perfect and I can't say thank you enough to be home 40 hours later and able to attend my Dad's funeral.
I highly recommend this travel agent to everyone.
PROS: Very patient officer, understanding and prioritize customer service
This is the best aquarium store I ever been to. I love their price, variety fish, and also good stock of aquarium accessories, books and fish food.
Everything you need for fish hobby, you just need to come to this place... always competitive price with the online store... so, no need to worry about buying too expensive stuff here. In addition to the good price, you can always go to their website to get some discount coupon. Don't miss the coupon.
If you want to get freshwater or saltwater fish, shrimp, plants, and any kind of rare to find fish or plants... come to this place, you will never regret... except if you live to far... then the fish can die on your way home...
PROS: Any kind of rare to find fish, shrimp or aquatic plants with good price
CONS: almost none...
I like this store, especially they carry rare to find fish. In term of pricing, I think this place is so reasonable. Unfortunate fo me, I live about an hour 10 minutes from the shop. I hope there will be a shop like this in my neighbourhood.
The store supports local aquarium hobbyist organizations, and also they have a program $10 off when you accumulate your purchase for $100. The accumulation is stored in a SIM card, one of those membership card with SIM chips on it.
PROS: Support local organization, good variety of rare to find fish, good price
CONS: The store is not that big, need more display for tanks.
This is one of the best aquarium store in the area. They carry good variation of fish and the staff is very accomodating. They answer most questions for beginners... but for an advanced fish hobbyist, only a few staff can answer the questions.
Beside the fish, they also carry all kind of equipment, fish food and medication, including pond related stuff. I like the cleanliness of the tank, as well as the variety they have.
One things they need to consider is about the pricing, compare with their bigger brother in Randallstown and Baltimore, they should consider in lowering their price, especially if we compare with online pet store... non-livestock will be better off buying it online.
PROS: Good staff, clean, a lot of variation of fishes
CONS: A little pricier
I just moved to a place where I have to do yard work... so I am a newbie in this field. When I go to this place, I asked the staff to advice me. They are very friendly and give a lot of good tips and suggestion in taking care of my lawn, adding annual flowers, etc. A few times I go back there, there is always new things to learn. Also everybody seems very accomodating.
I like this place as they have reasonable price... however, I would like to see them having a better pricing such as sale for a certain occassion... maybe I am too new to this. But we will see...., I found another garden center that has 20% discount every first monday of the month.
PROS: A lot of parking space
I have been searching and reviewing a digital camera. Finally I found the best price at this store with a very reasonable shipping cost. However, after I placed the order online, I couldn't check my delivery status online with the order # they sent by e-mail. I called the store, the wait time until the call was picked up and also answered by the right person was so long. The strange thing is that they offered me to buy other stuff, even I called to ask the status of my order.
After my call was not answered in a good manner, I received an e-mail asking me to call the store as there is some more information (they didn't tell what kind of information) were needed. When I called with the order # given, they didn't understand why I called. I stated a name as I received on the e-mail, the person still have no clue. I guess, they have a very bad system.
I was worrying that my item would not shipped, but the next day, I received notification that my items are shipped and scheduled to be delivered in 2 days (even the customer service said it should be 7 - 10 business days).
Anyway, I haven't received the item, but expect that the item will be in a new condition as stated, and will be delivered in 2 days.
I will keep you all posted.
PROS: Good price - delivery of the item is faster than stated.
CONS: Bad tracking system on the order and also bad customer service.
