Leslies is my pool store that I rely on for parts that I need for my inground pool. Parts are always in stock. Chemicals are usually on sale during the holiday periods(memorial day, 4th of July and Labor Day) This is perfect timing for opening, the period of the summer when you usually run out of chemicals and closing. Customer service is great. Free water testing provided and analyasis and they will even carry your purchases to your car for you. Very helpful personnel
I was first introduced to Weinrich's by a friend who had their pastries~Canolli's, cookies, and cakes~ at a party. Their bakery items are top notch. Every party that she has she gets her baked goods from there and it's always a hit by everyone at the party. Items are fresh and taste fabulous(ofcourse they're calorie free, lol)
My son's high school graduation phots were done by Thomas Angelo Studios. While the photos were fantastic, the packages were outrageously priced. We did get all the proofs, size 5x7, sent to us for review with a prepaid envelope to mail them back which was nice to see actual photos instead of online as other studios do. I was extremely impressed with this company.
Lifetouch is an area photograph portrait business which is often contracted with local schools. Both of my children's schools, one elementary/one high school, use this studio. The packages are great because you can build the package that you want or get just what you can afford. I had a problem once, a long time ago, with my son's communion photos being lost and they sent me the proof roll of photos taken so I could identify my son and then they printed the photo and gave me my package for free.
Surrey rides are a must when visiting Ocean City, NJ and so are the homemade donuts made each morning at this bike rental place. You can stop by just for a donut (or a dozen) or you can rent a surrey/bike and for a special price get a donut and drink with your rental. Rentals are an hour long and majority of the people head to the boardwalk to ride while looking at the ocean making a great start to their day. Prices are compatible with other rental places in OC but you won't get that extra donut treat anywhere else!!!!
This ski facility is in our own backyard making it a plus without having to travel three hours to the poconos to enjoy a day of fun. While I don't ski, they do offer tubing which is a load of fun for the entire family, makes you fee like a kid again. They offer lessons, rentals and lift ticket plans. Spring Mountain is also a place that schools and groups can book a day outing. They also have the capibility of making snow for the winters when mother nature will not cooperate.
Recently this store opened in the Montgomeryville Mall. My daughter was the first to discover it. Nice clothes, not everything 100% cotton and very reasonably priced. Great clearance prices too. They offer clothing, shoes, accessories~such as purses, belts, and jewelry. Every time I have been in the store there is a sale on jewelry and it's usually buy 2 get 1 free. This is a must stop for my daughter and I when we shop. She is 14 and LOVES the clothing there.
This book store is rather large and carries all types of books. There is even a coffee cafe right inside of the store. I don't think I have ever been in there without smelling the fabulous chocolate chip cookies being heated! What I like best about Barnes and Noble is that they provide chairs in the store to let you sneak a peek at the books you are going purchase. I have to say that 9 times out of 10 they have what you are looking for in stock and if not they will either locate it for you at another area Barnes and Nobel or order it for you if you can wait. Very friendly service and they often have great recommendations when looking for fiction to read.
Hollywood video is your typical video rental store, with the exception that they do have ample amounts of new releases in stock. The store is brightly lit and well organized. There is also a separate area of the store which is just devoted to video game rentals. The benefit of Hollywood video, and this has been their policy all along, is that the movie is rented for five days which is a plus in my book.
Shoprite in East Norriton offers groceries at the lowest prices in the area, in my opinion. When an item is on sale, 99% of the time they have it in stock, if not you can stop at customer service for a raincheck. Very rarely is there an error on the scanning. They offer discounts for their store, but also will accept competitor coupons up to 5.00 which is a bonus to saving money. Recently they also started offering a senior citizen discount on Wednesdays. Ofcourse, I'm not old enough for that benefit but it is nice to offer that so that elderly people can have that extra advantage to save money.
