The South Tacoma Antique Shop is a perfect place to spend a rainy afternoon. You could spend hours browsing through the many, many booths. The staff is polite and helpful but not pushy. They let you look at your leisure. You are bound to find some treasure at affordable prices. This shop can take you back to your childhood.
Old Navy has good prices on clothes that last. They routinely have sales and clearance racks that make shopping for kids affordable. The baby department has the cutest clothes! One of my favorite things is their holiday merchandise. They have everything from shirts to pajamas to dog toys to underwear for the holidays. Don't forget their $5 Fourth of July t-shirts!
I started my back to school shopping today. JC Penney had somes great sales. The girls department has clothes that are appropriate for girls at affordable prices. The selection of jeans was amazing! The shoe department was very busy but the employees were working so quickly but yet politely. This store has great selections at great prices.
I love the Pierce County Library! They have the best selection of books of any library that I have been to. They also have DVDs, talking books, CDs and more. The programs that they have for families are wonderful. My daughter recently attended programs on Dental Health and another on Origami. One of the bonuses of the Pierce County Library is that you are able to access the card catalog online and place holds online. They will email you when your selection is ready for you.
We picked Bridgeport Vacuum out of the phone book. We are glad we did. Upon arriving and talking to the polite employee we were impressed with the knowledge this employee had. He seemed to know it all. He also recommended a new vacuum should it be needed, but did not pressure. They seem to work on all types and ages of vacuums by the looks of the store. Very pleased!
Every time we go to Lowe's we receive good customer service. When purchasing a new grill the employee was very knowledgable and did not try to talk us into something we did not want. Another time we were not sure which brand of an item to get. The employee shared her experience with the different brands. We appreciated her honesty.
Whistle Workwear sells clothes that last for the working person. They have quality pants, shirts, jackets, boots and overalls. They have workwear for road construction workers. They even sell a bit of children's sizes. The employees are helpful and polite. Plus the Tootsie Roll bucket at the register is never empty!
On our last visit to Les Schwab we were greeted in the parking lot. What a surprise! They treated us with respect. Their prices beat the other businesses we had checked with. They installed our shocks quickly while we waited. They have a TV and free popcorn in the waiting area as well as vending machines and restrooms.
Party World has it all! I was impressed with the selection of party goods. They have it for all ages and holidays. They have everything you need for you party: plates, napkins, utensils, balloons, goodie bags, streamers, favors, signs, games and more. They will make up balloon bouquets for you. They also will work with you for your wedding. The most tempting part is the candy counter at the front of the store.
CONS: not enough parking
Andrews Hallmark in Spanaway is a great place to shop for gifts. They have a wonderful selection which makes it hard to choose. I love being able to shop for figurines, candles, ornaments, stuffed animals, balloons, etc. and being able to pick up cards and wrapping paper at the same time. The store is located in a shopping area with a grocery store, drug store, restraunts, coffee bar and movie rental store. Very convenient.
