Creekside Dry Cleaners is located in a small shpping center with lots of parking sapces. The service is great and my orders are always on schedule. I don't need much dry cleaning these days now that I don't wear suits due to a career change, but I always dealt with Creekside because of my good experiences with them.
Appian 80 Express Cleaners not only provides you with excellent dry cleaning, but clothing alterations a well. They are located very close to the freeway exit, Appian Way and parking is never a problem here. The service is great and your orders are always on time.
Toy Symphony in Sun Valley Mall is a new store extension from the other they have out in San Rafael. They have a variety of toys and specialty items. Tons of collectible items that are really hard to find at other toy stores. They have competitive prices and excellent service. I have met the store owners and they are one of the friendliest people you will ever meet. If you can't find a toy some place else. You'll find it here at Toy Symphony.
I go to school not too far from Remember When hobby store. They have almost everything you need in a hobby store and some pretty old and collectible items also. They can special order items if needed which is a plus. The service is ok and haven't came across an employee who didn't know how to help me. Parking spaces are always available and the bus stop is a few steps away if you don't drive.
RSM Oriental Food Market is a family owned market providing you with all your Filipino or Asian needs. They recently remodeled the store and added a restaurant section. The service is great and always willing to help find what you need. The prices are good and reasonable for hard to find items. The parking is right in front and always has enough spaces to park in.
That Pet Shop is located in a small shopping center in Pinole. It has many parking spaces available and is pretty easy to find. They carry all of your basic pet needs and can special order anything you need. I used to have fish so I used to buy my feeders for my Red Devil there. They have huge feeders and cheap prices too. Not much of a selection of fishes there though. The service is very good and friendly.
I used to work close by to Pet Arcade and used to buy feeders for my Red Devil. They have a lot of pet supplies and accessories. I mainly go there for the fish supplies which they are limited in because its not specialized in fish. It is pretty big and has its own parking lot. The staff is very helpful and knowlegeable of everything they sell.
The Tropical Fish World is located on one of the busiest streets in El Cerrito, San Pablo Ave. Although the store is not too nie to look at and needs some brighter lighting, they have almost all of your fish needs. The prices are ok and the service is good also. If you live in the area Tropical Fish World is a good enough fish store for your basic needs.
I took my dog here one time when he was attacked and bit with really deep wounds. The staff was well trained and came outside to check on my dog and brought him in for immediate attention. The staff is just great and really has people skills to make you feel comfortable and satisfied. They also explain everything you need to know about what they are going to do and what to do in the future.
The Oakland Zoo is not as big as the San Francisco Zoo but every Zoo is not the same. I'm more concerned about the location, traffic, and how well they maintain the place. After my experience here I would reccommend it. It's pretty clean and have plenty of benches around if you have kids and your tire of hauling them around. The gift shop had some great gifts at reasonable prices which was a little surprising. They also were pretty well staffed and were uniformed ready to assist in anyway possible.
