This is a locally owned and operated department store that strives to compete with the large national stores, and they do a wonderful job. They specialize in sports clothes featuring the largest colleges in the state. I was sent there by a podiatrist and told what clerk to see about the kind of shoes I should be wearing. I never had as much attention paid to my foot problem by any salesman in all my almost 80 years of life. This is just typical of the many different types of specialized attention to different problems throughout the store. They have an enormous parking lot, and they're in a convenient location. They also have regular very interesting advertised sales.
When I became unable to mount a ladder and wash windows on the outside of my home, I consulted the yellow pages. This company had a large display ad offering residential as well as commercial cleaning, and they further said small or large jobs. I called and set up an appointment at their convenience for a free estimate. They did not show up. I made other arrangements and had my windows washed. Over a month later, I came home to find a notice on my front door that they?d stopped by to give me a free estimate but didn?t find me at home. I wondered how long they thought I?d wait for them.
Shortly after my husband?s death, it was necessary to trade my car. He had always handled that, and I tried to prepare myself for the haggle that I had heard would occur. I asked some people I knew who had knowledge of cars about its approximate trade in value. This was the first dealer I approached. He first pointed out the pictures of people on the wall. He said he always took one of each customer with his or her new car, and he was eager to add my picture to his gallery. I thought this was a silly way to sell anyone a car, and his approach impressed me even less when he offered me roughly half of what I had been told my car was worth on a trade in. I just walked out. He followed me to my car begging me to return, but I refused. I successfully traded the same day with a more reasonable person. When I got home my phone was ringing, and it was the first dealer asking me to return. I told him my car was traded. He wanted to know where I had done business, and I told him that I didn?t want to discuss it. He then told me never to return to his garage to have it serviced. I haven?t.
I have purchased cakes from over the fifty some years that I have been in Charleston. I have always found them to be prompt, courteous, and do a wonderful job. I remember with particular fondness the cakes they made for me when my son was young. He had odd requests for a birthday cake that involved cartoons he watched on TV. They always listened carefully to his demands and produced one that he loved. They do equally well with more mature requests for adult occasions.
I found this agency in desperation when my current agent could no longer provide me with full insurance coverage. I asked a neighbor who provided their farm coverage, and they recommended them. I have now had insurance with them well over ten years, and it has been a happy relationship. Their office was a distance from me, and this bothered me originally. It proved to be no problem. Now they have an office in my town. They visit me often, have provided immediate help in emergencies, and in everyway provided good service.
I have had two bad experiences with this company. My property insurance policies were transferred to them when the company I had been using ceased doing business in my state. When it was time for renewal they refused to renew the farm that I owned as it was not a type of insurance they offered, and they gave me no help in finding a company that would. I found a company on my own and transferred all my policies to it. A few years later I was the executor of an estate, and the property insurance was with them. I called repeatedly for policy information, and they could not find it. They kept telling me not to worry. Finally, my lawyer called and had the information in a few minutes. I was glad to have no more contact with them.
This store has a large selection of carpet at very reasonable prices. I found it to be of good quality, and they offer quick and efficient installation. My experience with them was outstanding, and I plan to use them again the next time I need new floor covering. I have recommended them to several friends. Their estimates of cost are accurate and made quickly. The location is very good with wonderful parking provided.
I found this place when I was scheduling cataract surgery. An electrocardiogram was required, and I didn?t want to wait for an appointment. The surgeon?s office suggested that I could go to Health Plus, and they would do it immediately faxing it to the surgeon. I tried it, and after a very short waiting time it was done. I found everyone very helpful not only in doing the required test but also billing Medicare and also my supplementary insurance. It was a good experience, and I will try them again for some small thing rather than go to an emergency room.
I enjoy gourmet cooking and that includes trying international recipes. So often the ingredients required for them are not found in my local supermarkets. This store is an excellent source. Not only do they have a wide selection but also the service is wonderful. They stock things from many countries, and if they don?t have something I want or need they?re glad to order it. Their things are fresh, and the stock is often replenished
They have a nice sales shop for the novelty glass items that they make. They make a certain number of each item in a certain shape and then retire the mould. Also they make different colors constantly. No shape is ever repeated in the same color. The most interesting thing to me is the friendliness of the sales people. They love to talk about the glass they make and explain what is different about hand made glassware. They have a large parking lot and welcome visitors making them feel like members of the family.
