Everybody Reads is so much more than just a neighborhood bookstore. They host events that really reach out to everyone like Free Book Day, Stargazer evenings and general community gatherings. They are a unique store, well worth spending a little extra time just wandering around and looking at the variety of materials they carry.
I've been going to Cutter's Point East for years. Everyone there is very friendly, they really do know your name. They make you feel like you're old friends and are welcome into their salon.
They have a nice selection of treats that beats out the national competitor hands down. They have both soft and hard ice cream and all the mixes and blends to go with. They also have some of the best soups and sandwiches if you need more than dessert.
They have a wonderful selection of flowers and they always make your bouquet beautiful. They go above and beyond to make your purchase special and are very creative.
The first year I had their service, they were great, however after the first year, my lawn went back to nothing but weeds and grubs.
I found out that they were stopping by the house to give me a bill and not spraying the entire lawn. Stay away.
Gone Wired is great place to get a cup of coffee and a bite to eat. Since they've opened the kitchen, you can find some unique dishes to satisfy your need for food. It's a locally owned business and the owners really give back to the community by hosting breakfast benefits and they also have a presence at the farmer's market nearby.
Tidy and neat, this little grocer store is a nice walk from my house if you just need a couple of things. They have a decent butcher, but if you need any specialty items you will need to go to another grocery store.
I like these guys. They are a mid-michigan convenience store that has done well enough for themselves to have run 7/11 out of town. They have excellent ice cream and every store has a no fee ATM.
I used TDS as my local phone and DSL service for several years. So long as your lines are clear, their service is just fine. However, as soon as you start having any kind of trouble, their service really suffers when compared to their competitors. They have cheaper rates partly because they do not charge "line backer" fees on a monthly basis. When service is needed inside your house, they nickel and dime you with fees to check your inside lines. Their technicians are extremely rude and inadequate. After repeated attempts to fix my DSL, I ended up switching carriers. After one visit from a (much nicer) technician with the competitor, the lines were fixed and I have not had a problem since. TDS gave me several weeks of frustration and irritation for no reason other than their technicians need more training and customer service focus.
My daughter attended this day care facility for about two weeks. This facility is not very structured, they let the toddlers run in and out of the infant's area and 'hang out' there if they like it. My daughter was very unhappy there. She spent most of her day crying. When I would stop to check in on her, I would often find her standing alone, sucking her thumb or crying. The staff was very unresponsive and rude to my inquiries. I pulled her out and started going to Childtime Learning Center where she is very happy and there is an excellent line of communication between the parents and staff.
