They helped us buy our first home, and we have recommended them to several friends. They are an excellent team...they can help you see all the angles in potential houses (as parents, as a guy, as a woman)...they helped us find our home and it's nowhere near their own home/office, but they made sure they took the time to get to know the neighborhoods in which we were looking.
Here you'll find old school wooden toys, brand new science and techno games, and dolls of all sorts. Lots of hands on toys, as well as use-your-creativity games, which I always prefer to give, as opposed to the latest fad toy that will end up on a shelf.
They also have fun puppets, make your own wood bead jewelry, and more things that will delight you whether you're 5 or fifty.
The most variety in shops can be found here, including lower end teeny bopper stores as well as the upscale VonMaur, Ann Taylor and the like. A full food court, a Libby Lu and Build a Bear to occupy kids, a gaming store and Dick's Sporting Goods for hubby, and anything else inbetween.
This is the only mall in Indy with BAB, and one of two with a Picture People store in it.
If you have a ladies' only party to attend and need a risque gift, chances are you'll bump into a few others looking for the same at Pricillas. They carry all kinds of novelty gifts and games.
They also have a full line for the more...um...adventurous among you, as well as a full wall of videos/DVDs for sale or rent.
We go to Menards before any other home improvement store in the area. They are a bit more "cluttered" and you may need to dig a bit to find what you want, but the deals you find will beat anywhere else.
They also have a super helpful staff and lots of rebates on name brand items.
I have yet to be disappointed in Kroger. Of all the groceries I shop locally (especially for name brand items), Kroger comes out miles ahead in saving money. They always double coupons, and if you can catch a sale, as well as triple coupons, you can come out golden.
Also by using their frequent shopper card, you can save up to ten cents per gallon on gasoline at their pumps. A deal on top of a deal.
What they lack in fancy cheeses and amazing produce, they make up for with nice people and great prices.
I shop at Save a lot for all my staples. Flour, sugars, sour cream, canned goods, frozens. I can get out for less than fifty bucks and have a stocked pantry.
They carry fewer name brand items, but be sure you know the retail value to make sure it's a real deal.
Their store brands are very good...even sodas. In fact, their canned corn is better than any name brand I've tried.
It is much like an Aldi's environment, but they now take credit/debit as well as cash and check.
Try it out, you may suprise yourself.
The bread selection is amazing, their lunch specials are to die for, the atmosphere is hurried but "place to be"-esque. They needed a bigger space to keep up with all the lunch diners, but they couldn't know how popular they'd be. Try a big sandwich with a side salad for lunch, and come to realize that the salad would have been plenty.
Since turning this WalMart into a Supercenter with groceries, the powers that be haven't changed the checkout style by much. Now I have a cart full of groceries, but checking out will take me twice as long as any grocery with a conveyer belt. The prices can't be beat on many things, so if you're out for a deal, stop in, but make sure you have time to kill.
They are also notorious for lines twenty customers deep without opening any more checkouts. Perhaps understaffed, perhaps not quite ready to go "big time".
Including limited groceries, which they have since added since the remodel. With a Starbucks at the entryway, I like to go here just to wander when I get an hour kid-free.
You can pick up milk and soda and cereal, too. They have also added a pharmacy, so you can pretty much one stop shop here. I love Target.
