I have had an Amoco credit card for as long as I can remember, so I have always gone there. I was pleased when they opened this one several years ago as it is near my home. This particular store has the same quality gasoline and service that I get from almost every Amoco I go to.
It has been a while since anyone played the piano in my house, but I still try to get it tuned sometimes (maybe once a year). Whenever I do it, I call Pickle. They've been around for a long time, from what I understand, and they are always courteous and provide excellent service.
Nordstrom provides a bit of upscale shopping right in the regular mall. They have so many shoes from all the top designers. I also like that they have a live piano player (I think on weekends?? They always have someone when I am there and I usually go on weekends). It makes for a very relaxing shopping atmosphere.
Victoria's Secret is not just for lingerie. I really like their bath products, such as the lotions, sprays, and body washes. They often come in gift bags and are perfect to hand out at Christmas or birthdays or to keep for myself.
I go to Eddie Bauer for a lot of my winter clothing needs. I especially like their jackets. I can buy a down jacket for my ski trips or I can buy a beautiful suede coat for evenings out. There is just a lovely variety and selection of outerwear.
I go to Mark Shale to buy gifts for the business men in my family. They have a very nice selection of ties and sweaters. The prices are the same that you would pay anywhere else. I don't think they are any cheaper or more expensive. But I go here because I like their designs.
Tiffany's lives up to their reputation as a classy place. They have very elegant jewelry and some of it is even affordable to regular people. Their service is great, no employees have ever acted like snobs.
Carson's is a nice department store, I would rate it a step above Sears, Penneys, and Kohls in terms of quality of merchandise. Carson's has name brand items that the other stores don't have.
I shop at Kohl's for throwaway clothing items for my grandchildren. I can't bear to spend a lot of money on clothes that they will outgrow in a few months. Kohl's always has nice bargains in the children's department. I also buy throwaway items for myself, such as socks and slippers because it's cheaper here than at other places.
I have been shopping at J.C. Penney's for more than 35 years, they never let me down. Though I'm not buying clothes from there anymore, I still think their White Sales are the best. I stock up on all my bedding and linen needs at J.C. Penney.
