I have gone to Dr Schelkun for a number of years. He has performed both dental surgery and orthognathic surgery on me and I would recommend him without hesitation. He has a nice manner about him and is easy to talk to. His staff is very knowlegable and make you feel at ease. He also has great office hours so it is quite easy to get an appointment.
PROS: Good manner, knowledgable
I recently joined BJ's after it opened in Warminster recently. I find it to be a very clean store with a wide variety of items. You can find some good deals here but you need to be careful that you don't over spend as almost everything is in bulk. They have a full service deli and bakery which is nice and they also take coupons unlike other warehouse stores. One thing that I do not care for is that even though they carry many items,they will only have one flavor in a certain item. I would not do my weekly grocery shopping here but I will go to buy certain items that I go through a lot of as it is cheaper than buying them at the grocery store.
PROS: Good prices
CONS: Must buy in bulk, not a lot of variety
I shop at Shop Rite every week and think it is a very good supermarket. They have a good selection of most items and most of the employees are very helpful. Their deli is very good and I have never had a problem with any meat or other items I have bought there. Their prices are among the most reasonable in this area although I wish they would not make you buy multiple items to get the sale price. They double coupons and sometimes run triple coupons. I find Shop Rite to be a decent place to shop with good prices.
PROS: Good prices and lots of selection
CONS: Sometimes have to buy multiples to get sale price.
We recently stayed at the Embassy Suites in downtown Philadelphia. The hotel is centrally located on the Parkway and easily accessable to everything. The hotel is all suites and the rooms are large and well laid out. They offer a free buffet breakfast every morning which is nice.
The things that could have been better are: the ladies room in the lobby was out of service the whole time we were there, they were short of maid service and our room was not made up until after 5 PM the one day we were there.
Otherwise,this is a very nice hotel and I would recommend it if you are staying in Philadelphia.
PROS: Nice layout
CONS: Ladies room out of service
This is a relatively new Macy's and it is really nice. They have a great selection and while their prices are high, they have a lot of good sales. The day after Thanksgiving, they have tremendous sales and they usually have $10 off almost anything coupons in the newspaper with no minimum purchase. The people who work at Macy's are very nice and helpful but not pushy.
PROS: Good sales
CONS: A little high priced
A couple of years ago, this mall was just about dead. There have been great improvements over the past two years. There is now a Walmart, (smaller but ok), a pet store, a nice Dollar Tree and a clothing store. The Chinese restaurant and the Acme are still there. This is not a bad little more to find anything you need.
PROS: Much improved
This is a small Dollar Store located in Willow Grove. Since it is so small, it does not have as good a selection as other dollar stores in the area. They have very little food,but they do have a decent selection of home goods. Sometimes, it seems that they do not have enough help, I have had to wait in line for some time to check out while the cashier is busy blowing up balloons.
PROS: Convenient, right on Welsh Road
CONS: Not much of a selection
Ulta is one of the few places I will go to buy beauty supplies. They have a huge selection of just about every beauty and hair supplies you can imagine. They run great sales and they send out great coupons to use in their store. They also have a store card where you can earn free items based on the amount of money you spend there per quarter. They are located in Willow Grove right on Moreland Road.
PROS: Lots of sales
Pets Plus is located i nthe Walmart Shopping Center on Blair Mill Road. It is very clean and has an extensive selection of supplies and food for all kinds of pets. They also have the most beautiful selection of fish that I have ever seen in any pet store. The whole back of the store is devoted to fish tanks. It is a neat place to take your kids to just look at the fish. They have good prices on their food and supplies. The only thing I wish they had was a store card so that you could earn free pet food.
PROS: Great selection of fish
CONS: No discount card.
If you are looking for toys, this store has a good variety. I am not crazy about the layout of the store. I find it difficult to find things. They do run good sales,not only on toys but also on video games. As for the store employees, I have found a few who were nice but also some who were extremely rude. I think this is the best place to shop for toys as they have the widest varieties of toys in the area.
PROS: Lots of toys
CONS: Not a very good layout.
