Bike O Rama is the place to go when looking for a bike- especially a mountian bike. They carry a lot of brands but Specialized is the one that I bought. The customer service is wonderful and they are so patient with you when you are trying to find the right bike. They know so much about bikes and the trails in the area. They carry a lot of biking apparel and other items for bikes. They have water bottles, clips, seats, etc. The prices are the best around and you can't beat the customer service. They are so much better than the large chain bike stores- these people really know what they are talking about when it comes to bikes and riding!
PROS: Great customer service
CONS: small store
Always Christmas is a little bit of christmas all year long. The store is decorated with christmas trees, lights , garlands, ornaments, etc. I collect a lot of christmas specific items and this is the place I go to get them all year long. They have so many collectible ornaments sets and pieces for sets. They also have houses and pieces to add to those collections. The prices are the normal for most gift shops but they do have sales and specials. If you want a little bit of christmas in the middle of the year- take a trip to Always Christmas!
PROS: Christmas all year long
CONS: small store
If you are into scrapping or stamping - this is the place. It has everything you need for both hobbies. I was so impressed with the specialty inks and pads they had for the stamping. They had sponge stamps as well as the wood block stamps and the prices were very good. They had the paper to make cards, etc with and it was very reasonable too. The scrap supplies are normal- paper, stickers, embellishments and such. They had a lot of scissors and specialty punches. The place is not huge but it has enough room to carry a lot of stamp and scrap items. The staff was nice but wasn't overly helpful but they were busy when I was there.
PROS: Good selection
CONS: staff not as friendly as they should be
Little Elm Flower Market is one of the best little florists that I have ever been to! They are so nice and sweet and helpful in the store. They are a telaflorist so you can call and order what every flower arrangement you want and they also have a web site. I have never used the website or phoned in an order-I have just gone in and they are wonderful. The flowers are so fresh and they make the arrangements really full -- and they last forever. They deliver on time and are really nice when they deliver. I have used them to send a lot of flowers to the hospital. You should check them out if you are looking into sending flowers!
PROS: Very nice and great flowers
If you are looking for shin gaurds or those soccer shoes you can't find anywhere else, Soccer City is the place to shop. They carry everything and anything soccer. They have a lot of shoes that you can't find anywhere else unless you special order. They have shorts and shirts, sports bras, socks, balls etc in stock. The staff is very friendly and all of them know about soccer and are great when trying to outfit the beginning soccer player. Some items are a little expensive but when they are hard to find - that isn't an issue.
PROS: Shoes and shirts
Sam Moon is the best place to go if you are looking for a purse or jewelry. They don't have name brand items- just generic purses made to look like name brand without saying that. They have a great selection of any kind of purse you could imagine and shelves and shelves of jewelry. The prices are the best in town and you can spend hours shopping for purses in there. The staff isn't very helpful because most of them speak limited english.
PROS: Good prices
CONS: Very crowded on weekend
Justin Boot Outlet in Justin is a real outlet. It isn't just a place they discount items to sell them- this is an outlet and you get outlet prices! You can get boots that have a little color difference or a stitch out of place for a huge discount. You normally can't tell what the defect is in the boot or shoe. They carry a lot of other things too- belt buckles, belts, shirts, etc. Everything is discounted especially the leather items like the boots and wallets. Staff is nice and very western. Good parking lot.
PROS: Good discounts on boots
CONS: hard to get to
Foster's Western Wear & Saddle shop is one of those western stores that has been around forever and looks and smells like it. They carry a lot of bridles, saddles and things for horses but they have a great selection of western wear including boots. They carry all the top lines of western jeans and shirts. The boots are the normal brands carried by most western stores (Justin, etc). The prices are very good for an independent western wear store and the customer service can't be beat! They are so friendly and helpful with everything. This is the place to go for all your western needs!
PROS: Great western wear
Catholic Arts & Gifts is the place to go if you are looking for things for first communion or any type of religous event. They carry a very large selection of bibles, rosaries and such. They have many theolgoical books and resources also that line the shelves. They have some really pretty gift items that are perfect to give for first communion or christenings. The prices are good for most of the items, especially the gift items. The people that work there are helpful with picking out the right gift to give for the certain religoius occasion.
PROS: Good selection of religous items
