I take my quilts and comforters to Poplar Street Laundry 2-3 times a year. I wash them myself in the triple loaders. They are competitively affordable, but the best of all, it is clean. They have someone there to help you if need and the floors and equipment are kept clean and in repair. It is also centrally located where it is only a few minutes drive from my home and not a very busy area.
My daughter went to St. George School. It is an excellent school and very kid friendly. It is quite large, but have enough teachers and aides to teach the children well. The only problem I had with the school is that even though they are a Catholic School, there are quite a number of children who are not Catholic. If you aren't Catholic, you must still take all the classes to receive the Sacraments. I asked for my child to be opted out and was "put off" and we removed her from the school.
We bought some tires at Firestone and had an excellent experience with them. They had a special going on that if you buy 4 tires from them, you get a lifetime (on the tires) free wheel alignment. With our winter weather in this area, alignments are part of the deal. We can go to Firestone and get it for free. This was a great deal which made us glad we bought our tires there.
PROS: Great specials
We have an excellent mechanic, but when he can't fix something, he tell us to go to Briggs Hagenlocher. They have excellent service and always take us immediately. They are very reasonable and have the reputation in town as the place to go when you can't figure out what's wrong with your car. I would highly recommend them for any computer repairs for your car.
PROS: Excellent service
When my husband needed to get a suit altered quickly, I called Roberto and he was able to alter my husband's suit very quickly. He is a wonderful man who is excellent in his work. His prices are reasonable and his work is superb. I recommend him to evertone I know because of his personal service and excellent work.
PROS: Superb work and prices
I love Breakiron because of the personal service. I went in there 2 months ago to buy my niece a graduation present with only so much in funds. I told them what I had to spend and they spent an hour with me looking and showing me things in that price range. When I found what I wanted, they wrapped in for no charge. I highly recommend them!
PROS: Personal Service
Dr. Gallagher is a very knowledgeable doctor and I take my daughter to him. Unfortunately, I do not care for his bedside manner. He was very stern with me about her behavior after he had to put a large Q-Tip up her nose and down her throat two times because he put the first sample on the wrong side of the glass. I couldn't believe he would yell at me for her behavior after putting her through that trauma two times. However, I think he is the best around, medically, but not for bedside manner.
CONS: Horrible bedside manner
We love going to Delta Sonic to get our cars washed. They are quick and do an excellent job. My kids love to go through it because they think it's fun. What is also nice is that you get a discount on gas when you get a car wash. The employees there are very friendly and very thorough. They do an excellent job and that is why we go there. Everyone is very friendly and they also have a very large store, "Kiss Mart" which is very clean, large and reasonable.
I love going to Sally's because of all the "fun" items they have. I just like browsing to see what's new. I especially recommend their line of "Heel to Toe" for our harsh winters. These items help with severely dry feet. Their staff is very friendly and very helpful. I have also bought hair coloring from them and the prices are very reasonable.
PROS: Very friendly and prices are reasonable
I have been there twice (should have learned my lesson the first time) to have my daughter's bangs trimmed. They charged me $8.00 just to have the bangs trimmed plus another $2.00 service fee! I couldn't believe and then they wanted me to leave a tip after that! I will never go there again. Their prices and "service fee" is outrageous. Other places will only charge me $4.00 to trim bangs with no service fee.
CONS: Prices are outrageous
