I first visited the store just a couple of weeks after it opened and they were very disorganized, stock all over the place, no one seemed to know what they were doing. I went back 1 other time because it was close by and they had been open a few months and it wasn't any better. Not enough help, selection not that great and prices higher than other pet stores. It was a major disappointment. I much prefer PetSmart.
PROS: Can't think of any.
CONS: Disorganized, short of help, poor selection.
Friendly staff who know you and your pet by name. Vets who are knowledgeable and compassionate and go that extra step. I have expensive pets but they help me where they can. They spend as much time with me/my pet as needed and answer any questions to my satisfaction. Can't imagine going anywhere else.
PROS: Friendly, knowledgeable, compassionate.
CONS: None for me, but my dog may have a different story. Not her favorite place
I called Geico for a car insurance quote. They advertise a response within 24 hours. After 48+ hours I still had not heard from anyone and had to call again. They had very few agents authorized to write policies in my state. When I did get a quote it was $215.00 higher than what I currently pay.
Their commercials are stupid.
CONS: Stupid commercials
This is a wholesale nursery and as such, don't expect much help. Their selection of trees/shrubs was very extensive, though their flower selection was limited. They also have lighting, stone, statuary. Their quality is good. Expect to do a lot of walking and it is very open and hot, so wear good shoes and take a drink with you.
PROS: Good selection
CONS: Not much help if you don't know what you are looking for.
My parents had a tree damaged during a storm, really only 2 branches needed cutting down and they weren't even very big. The gentleman came by on a Saturday and charged him as much as we later had the whole tree taken down for and it was a very large tree. My parents were sick and elderly and this man took advantage of them. They did not contact the company, this man came by and knocked on their door. He may have been acting independently, but he was using the company truck/equipment.
PROS: Takes advantage of the elderly.
I haven't personally used this company, though had them come give me a quote on some tree work. They are used heavily in my community, but they were priced very high for what they did. I have heard no complaints from anyone that has used their service and I would recommend them, yet caution to get another quote too.
The staff are not knowledgeable about products. Their mulch is of very poor quality. Their selection is severely limited. They are using my pond in their advertisements against my wishes and deny it is my pond. They had absolutely nothing to do with the construction of my pond at all. Owner very rude.
CONS: A total waste of time.
Great selection of plants/trees, knowledgeable and friendly staff, very helpful. I avoided them thinking they were too expensive, but they are in line with other local nurseries, although more than your local Home Depot. They have a wonderful garden club that is free to join and you get points worth $$ for everything you buy, coupons throughout the year, and 100% refund on plants/trees that die within 1 year. My entire family could easily spend all day at the Village.
PROS: Excellent selection, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff.
CONS: I want one of each and always spend more than I plan when I go.
The company is owned and run by a husband and wife and various other family members. Honest people, friendly, and helpful. Their selection of plants is good for a community nursery and they are growing their business by adding stone, water garden accessories,etc. The only thing I don't like is that their guarantee on their plants/trees is very short. Really nice shredded hardwood mulch.
PROS: Honest, friendly, helpful people.
CONS: Severely limited tree selection, very short guarantee.
This is run by a young guy who hasn't the first clue about running a business, couldn't tell the truth if his life depended on it, and advertises services that he is not capable of performing. His work is of poor quality, his customer service is even worse. His rates are much too high for his lack of experience.
PROS: Absolutely none.
