Almas Hair Salon is a fun, hip, freindly place for women to get their hair done. It is full of experienced stylists with friendly personalities. The prices vary by complexity, but are all fair. The place is a bit messy, but in a good "feels like home" kind of way.
Family Pride Laundry is surprisenly big. They also do drop off services for a small fee. The area is clean and bright. There is free coffee available with many mounted television sets for your viewing pleasure. There is also many vending machines to buy snacks and such. This is a good place.
The employees at Chiquis Car Car and Collision really know what they are doing. They did a fantastic job on my car and their customer service was out of this world great! The prices are decent, but the work is high quality. This place is highly recommended. They gained a loyal customer.
If your in a hurry to go get a cd while you do some shopping, then Video La Joya Musical Discoteca is the place for you. They even sell prepaid cellphones! Talk about your one stop shop. The employees are very knowledgeable about music. It is a bit on the pricey side. But the location is very convineant. It is surrounded by grocery and such stores. I rate this 3 stars because of their high prices. All else is good.
Marys Day care is a nice place for your children. They have expeirenced teachers and they are sure friendly. The building is a bit small for all the children they have, but it makes up for it in style. They have toys, books, and other teaching materials that your children would enjoy. My daughter learns something new everyday she goes. The price is ok. Very affordable.
The East Chicago Public Library has the worst librarians I have ever encountered in all of my life. They do not have many books, the ones they do have seem really old and worn out. They always make mistakes about what books you did or didn't bring back. There are always little kids running around making noise and nobody does anything to shut them up. The library is clean but really small.
The Hammond Clinic is very clean. The doctors are great all of them are friendly and really seem to care about their patients. They do take insurance and if you still can't afford to go, they are nice enough to work something out. They have many vending machines and cable in their waiting rooms along with a ton of magazines. The wait is really long though. You can expect to be there for a couple of hours all together.
I went to Hammond Mufflers once and my experience was pretty good. They took long fixing my car, but overall I got a pretty good deal. The muffler came with a warranty and it cost really cheap even though I got it new. The mechanics seemed honest and they offered to buy my old muffler.
The Hammond Public Library offers a wide selection of books. Membership is free and they offer many other services such as classes and movie rentals and book sales. The librarians are very helpful and are happy to help with any problem you may encounter. They have many books on all kinds of subjects. They even let you go online and use their computers for your school reports or work. They even have a tutoring program. The library looks new and is very clean. Inside is so huge. There are four stories. The parking lot is always full, but you are sure to find parking some where around the area.
My girlfriend goes here and I always like going with her. The atmosphere is just so great. The decor is marvelous. The professors are well educated and experienced. The price is really expensive, but all universities are. The school is so big and cut into different sections it is easy to get lost. Inside most everything is new and everyone is just so friendly. The classrooms are packed, but there are a few classes with a good student to teacher ratio. There are many activites to participate in. They have up to date computers. They even have a huge workout gym where anyone can sign up to join though students get discounts. Over all it is a great school.
