Bello Woods is a nice golf course that is a really good value.. their prices are a lot lower then others in the area.. this course is not for experts, beginners and novice would be happy here.. they have 3 nine hole courses and the greens are kept up well.. there isn't much water on this course.. one drawback in there it always seems that you are in the way of others, something bad about the way the fairways are positioned.. it's not bad when it's not very busy but when it's busy you better watch out.. for the value and course I do golf here though.. the staff is friendly!
We purchased our roofing materials from Abco when we recently built our home.. we shopped around for materials and found that Abco had very comparable prices.. we did most of the dealings over the phone and the people were always friendly and helpful.. the materials was ordered correctly and when it came in everything was as should be.. we were happy with our experience at Abco.
I am and have always been a customer at Blake's.. it's a great place to go and take the family for the day.. one of the best things about fall is going out to the apple orchard for the day.. it's so great.. there are a lot of orchards in our area but I rate Blake's as one of the best.. it is huge.. you can always get fresh produce and everything is SO good.. the apple cider is yummy.. they always have some sort of event going on, in the fall they have the hayrides which are always fun.. throughout the year they sell different things, have group tours.. anything your heart desired.. it's a GREAT place to visit with your loved ones.. so go, make a day of it!!
Calverley Supply is a HVAC supplier.. my husband is in the HVAC field and purchases a lot from Calverley.. they have great hours, the prices are reasonable and they sell to contractors and homeowners.. they have a wide variety of materials and parts in stock, which is important in the hvac field.. we've never had a problem getting things done at Calverley.. they also have weekend hours which is great!!
We have purchased supplied at Colonial Brick many times for our brick work while building our home.. we purchase all of our block here (what is needed to prep for the brick).. they always have exactly what we need in stock and ready to go, which is great for us.. they carry all sorts of bricks and brick products (we didn't use them for our actual brick because they did not carry and could not supply what we wanted).. the staff is friendly, prices are right and materials is ready, works for us!!
When we built our home we used Clark & Sons as one of our first contractors, we hired them to dig out our basement, well the price was pretty much even with all the other quotes we got and we liked the owner, he was really down to earth and friendly, but then the work was done.. we were not satisfied with the way the job was done, sure it was done but when the basement is dug 2' shorter then what it should have been dug then it is a big deal, it was a big fiasco and if we were able to do it over again, we would not use them.
When we decided to build our home we needed a construction loan.. we shopped this around at the banks we belonged to and to other banks that we didn't already belong to because we wanted to find a bank that worked with what we thought was important.. we ended up going through First State, which we were not prior members to because of a few reasons.. first off their staff was just super friendly, they sat with us and answered questions, gave us advice and really just got to know the situation before telling us what we had to do, which is the treatment we got at some other banks.. First State was very easy going with us from the beginning until the end, we were so glad we used them for our construction loan.. it was such a simple process that other banks just wanted to make way too complicated!
I am a lifetime member of Fitness USA.. they have an equal number of pros and they do cons.. they are open 6 days a week in which they alternate, men one day, women the next, so each sex gets 3 days a week in which they are allowed to come work out, they have several locations and they alternate so it's easy enough to be able to work out pretty much any monday-saturday.. they have classes you can take during the hours they are open too.. the downfall about these gyms is that they are small and only have a limited amount of space, which equals a limited number of machines, which eqauls a lot of wasted time waiting for machines.. it's rather annoying and if I wasn't already a lifetime member, I probably wouldn't be a member at all.. I mean really, who wants to go to the gym for an hour and have to spend half the time waiting in long lines!!
My husband recently had to take a certification course for work (he is in the HVAC field) which he took at Johnstone Supply.. he was able to obtain and purchase study materials from here (book, dvd & training guides) before taking the exam.. he though the staff here was friendly and the test was able to be taken after work hours, so that helped out a lot.
Johnsone is also a heating supplier, so he has purchased HVAC parts and supplies from here in the past and has always been satisfied.
H.L. Clayes is a wholesale plumbing, heating and well supplies company.. we recently built a home and purchased a few things from here.. our biggest purchase was our jacuzzi tub.. we shopped around for the pefect tub and H.L. Clayes just has a really large selection on display and for special order.. We found a tub we really like and had them order it, because it was special order, the counter help was very friendly and willing to work with us, the price was reasonable for the tub, even though it was a large purchase.. it came in the date specified.. they have good hours and are open on the weekend, which is really good for people who work long hours!
