Comprehensive Counseling Services is located on 1st Street in Down-town Roanoke, in an old Victorian house. My daughter sees a counselor at Comprehensive Counseling Services. The counselors are wonderful and super friendly. Highly recommend for adults and children. Individual and family counseling are both available.
Carilion Behavioral Health on Highland AVE is a great place. My son has been seeing an adolescent psychologist through them for almost two years. The doctors are very caring and very helpful. Highly recommended. Patients rae not overbooked, so you never have to wait, you are seen at your appointment time.
Hollins Barber Shop is located on Willaimson Road near Hollins University. They barbers at Hollins are great! I have been taking my son there for over eleven years and Ed has always cut his hair. The other guys, Ben and Richard and the ladies, Shannon and Carol, are just great as well. All are very friendly and always remember you when you come in. Highly recommend! Their prices are much lower than those of a salon. They are closed Sundays and Mondays, open until 5:00 PM during the week and 4:00 PM on Saturdays. Saturdays are very busy and the wait can be long. Better to go on an off hour during the week.
Shenandoah Robe Company is the place to order your gowns and robes. They have a freindly staff that goes out of their way to help you get the choir robes you want. They make adult and children robes, Baptismal robes, Judicial Robes, academic robes, pulpit robes and stoles. They have many color and fabric options to choose from. Highly recommend.
Head Start located right next to Indian Village is wonderful. Both of my children attended pre-school at Head Start, I cannot say enough about them and all they do for child. I highly recommend sending a child to Head Start before they enter public schools.
The teachers are great and friendly. Parents are always welcome to come see what is going on and to go on field trips. Bus transportation is also available.
Dance Etc is a great place to go to get all of your dance clothing and costumes. The employees are super friendly and very helpful. Prices are competitive, not overly expensive. Highly recommend.
Dance Etc is conviently located right in the heart of Vinton on Virginia AVE.
Gantner is located right of off I-81 at Towers Shopping Center. The employees were not very friendly to my daughter and I- it could have been an off day??? Not sure.
Gantner's has a nice selection of costumes and dance wear, but they are outrageously priced. Most things you find at Gantners can be found elsewhere for a lot less.
Pet City is conviently located on Williamson Road. They have anything you could need for your pet as far as supplies go. They have a small selection of pupies and kittens (that are not as expensive as those at the better known pet stores). They have hundreds of different types of fish. They have birds of all sorts, The talking parrots are a hoot. They have hermit crabs, gerbils, hampsters and other poplar small pets as well as snakes. There is one monkey-not for sale- there were two, but his buddy died back in July. If you go for nothing else, go to watch the monkey!
About Pets is all about pets! Animals can boarded while you are away or they can just go for the day for 'doggie daycare.'
For an extra fee, dogs and pups can get a swimming pass for the day for the swimming pool. Let them know what your pets snack allowance is for each day, because they can 'purchase' snacks too.
They also sell pet items, such as collars, pet costumes, brushes, etc.
PROS: They are all about the pet
Crouchs Pharmacy is located on Williamson Road in the Hollins area near Hollins University. They are more than a pharmacy. They of course have over the counter medications, band-aids, greeting cards and the things you would normally find in a pharmacy. But, they also have the neatest gifts and collectibles. They have all kinds of cookie jars and kitchen items. Lots of hard to find stuff too. Elvis, I Love Lucy and Harley Davidson collectibles, beanie babies, books, windchimes, etc.
PROS: Great place for gifts
