I have not taken my cat here to see the vet; however, I have purchased items from their store. The store carries Hill's Prescription Diet brand cat food, which was exactly what I was looking for. The prices were reasonable, and check out was quick. The facility seemed to be clean and well-maintained. The staff was courteous and professional.
Living in downtown Lafayette, the Pay Less on Maple Point Drive is the most convenient supermarket to me. From the outside, the building looks run down, but the quality of the items is decent. The produce selection is somewhat limited but adequate. I've found all of the staples I was looking for. I was not impressed with the selection in the deli, however. The Pay Less on Sagamore Parkway is definitely larger and newer, and I would prefer to do my regular shopping there instead.
Bed Bath and Beyond is a great place to find things for the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. They have a wide selection of bedroom linens at a range of prices. They also carry everything I needed to stock the kitchen in my new apartment. I was impressed that the size of the store is comparable to those located in larger cities. If you give them your zip code, they will send you valuable coupons in the mail for future use.
Lowes has a very large selection of home improvement items. I was looking for heavy-duty concrete connection hardware that is load rated, and unfortunately they do not carry what I was looking for. There are many employees available to assist customers, and all three employees I encountered were courteous and helpful. I particularly liked the gardening department, which had a nice selection of both indoor and outdoor plants at reasonable prices.
J&K Supply has a good selection of construction supplies, including reinforcing bars, concrete and concrete admixtures, and miscellaneous supplies. Some items are stocked, and others can be ordered. The facility is a warehouse, and there is not much of a store per se. However, the manager gave me a tour of the facility and showed me what was available. The staff is friendly and helpful, both in person and over the phone.
Fastenal has a great selection of industrial hardware. I was looking for concrete connection hardware items that are heavy duty and are load-rated, and they had exactly what I was looking for. The staff was friendly and helpful. The assistant manager spent 15 minutes with me listening to my needs and making recommendations for specific products. He also gave me a catalog of their products for future use. I would definitely recommend this store to people who need hardware for applications that are more specific than basic home-improvement needs.
