Ruby is extremely knowledgeable about every product they carry. You can go in and tell her exactly what results you want and she will help you and explain everything to you. If they don't have what you need, they will be willing to do whatever they can to find it for you. I actually tried to look online for better deals once and was shocked to see that their pricing was way below even internet pricing. Definitely check them out!
I have mixed feelings about the Lufkin Daily News. I love buying their end rolls for $1, they make great craft/painting paper for my children. The staff has always been friendly, but we were just trying to sell our home and tried to place an ad. I made myself very clear that I needed it asap. I checked the paper, no ad. I had to call back and she says "oops, we'll have to start it in 2 days" I was furious because I needed it to run on certain dates. There were 3-4 messups during that period with her and finally I just cancelled it all together. Every other time I have had good luck though. SO I'm 50/50 on them.
Yikes! They are priced higher than new clothes at a department store. They do have some beautiful new things here and what they do have in resale is pretty good and quite a bit of it, but who can afford or would pay these prices? Crazy if you ask me...go elsewhere, catch some sales in the mall or around town, you can do much better.
We were very pleased with Dr. J as he delivered our 1st baby. His bedside manner was awesome, joking, laughing and making the whole experience as pleasant as it could be. He was always super informative in his office and never too busy to sit for a minute and really explain things in detail to you. We really appreciate his kindness and if I still lived in the area would defintely be using him!
We have been to numerous b-day parties here and have had a blast everytime. I have found that overall they are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The pizza is very good and priced well also. It's affordable to have a party here and a good time. I'd recommend it :-)
Ok, I agree with Amy. We have been numerous times and while this is a great deal, since we have moved and have a $1 theater here, there is NO comparison. The Angelina Twin Cinema is filthy inside. There is no reason that just because it's a good deal that it should be allowed to be so dirty. SO while yes, we go because it's cheap, it's also cheap here but extremely clean and nearly as nice as the larger more expensive theaters. Just because it's a good deal doesn't mean they have to let it go to the pooper.
CONS: Very dirty
We tried this out for a trial class and liked the way the kids were in the room alone, but you had video survelliance to be able to watch from the waiting area. The kids seemed to have fun, but at times I was worried about how they were being handled. THe helpers seemed to be WAY too young to be helping with such small children. I also received 2-3 bills after that trial class and we let them know that we weren't going to register her, so that was also a pain that took 3 phone calls to fix.
PROS: NIce Facilities
CONS: Could be dangerous
The staff at Abelt's always seems to be eager to help with anything you have a need for. I found their prices to be higher than most, but at times they had things that I couldn't find elsewhere. I have used them alot for laminating and have been pleased with the finished product and price for the lamination. Overall it's a good small store.
PROS: Nice staff
It's SMALL and at times has more stores empty than full. This mall is ok, but way too small for a city like Lufkin that is growing by leaps and bounds. THey really need to expand or something. They have good stores, but there is better shopping outside of the mall in Lufkin than inside of it. We do enjoy the childrens' playground there.
PROS: Very Average
We saw Dr. Fidone when my dd's normal doc wasn't in. We weren't overly impressed with his bedside manner, he wasn't extremely personable and seemed a little rushed, but I trusted that he knew what was wrong and was doing his best to take care of it. I would defintely see him again, but he wasn't my child's favorite.
