Constan car wash is Columbia's premier car wash business. They do an excellent job of washing the car and cleaning the interior. The prices are not cheap, but watch for coupons in the Val Packs that come in the mail. They have a comfortable waiting room with windows where you can watch your car go through the car washing machines. I would highly recommend Constan.
I have used Hoods Tire and Brake Service for my recent tire purchase and oil changes and basic car maintenance. Hoods has a deal for people who buy their tires from them- cheaper oil changes and free tire rotations. The only complaint I've had with them was that once the mechanic forgot to replace the oil cap and oil leaked all over! When I went back, they thoroughly cleaned under my hood, refunded my money for the oil change, and gave my $20 to get the car washed.
Although I becam a little turned around trying to figure out how to get into Nuttall Tire and Brake, once I arrived I was very pleased by their service. I simply went in to get my tires rotated, but will definitely go back for all of my tire needs. They also let me know that if I buy my tires in the future from them, they will rotate them for free which sounds like a great deal to me!
Invitation Station has a nice selection of cards for invitations, stationary, wedding invitations, and other paper products. They have blank invitations for every occasion from baby showers and announcements, bridal showers, weddings, rehearsal dinners, luncheons, birthday and other parties, and any other event you could think of. The customer service is just ok and the prices are pretty comparable to other stores.
Nan's notes has a great selection of cards for invitations, note cards, or stationary for any occasion. The prices are comparable to other stationary stores in the area. I think that this store has the cutest selection of wedding, shower, birthday, dinner, and Christmas invitations that you can purchase blank or have them create for you. A great option for your next party!
Unfortunately, I have to say I was unimpressed with my experience with a Bollin Ligon Walker Realtor. I do not want to name names, but I just felt like I was not an important client to this company. The agent did not seem to go out of his way to make sure I was satisfied and looking back, I realize that he may not have been looking out for my best interest. I would recommend looking to other realtors for your home-buying experience.
New Life Fitness World in the Northeast of Columbia is a beautiful facility that does not seem to live up to expectations. Although they do have many payment options (monthly memberships to annual memberships), the prices are high even if you sign up for a 2 year contract. The classes offered are limited )example no spinning class), there is no pool, and the staff is only occassionally friendly.
We highly suggest Shandon-Wood Animal Clinic for all of your pet needs. We have been taking our 2 toy poodles there since they were puppies. While they admit their prices are slightly higher than the competition, it is worth the few dollars difference to us. The quality of care is excellent there. We would especially recommend Dr. Raines and vet techs Jessie and Lawrenda.
Whenever I need a manicure or a pedicure, I head to Star Nails. The staff there are very friendly and helpful. While the atmosphere is not that of a spa or a resort, for a regular pedicure, I would highly suggest Star Nails. The prices are lower than a spa and the pedicure lasts for weeks!
Goodwood Finished and Unfinished Furniture store is the place to find all kind of wood furniture that you can finish the way you like it. They have a large selection of tables, dressers, chairs, and beds. Even larger is their selection of different stains in different colors so that each piece can be personalized to your liking or to the furniture you already have. Their customer service is very good and representative of a locally owned customer. Their prices are a little high, but that is probably to be expected of a store that again is locally owned and sells high quality wood furniture.
