I moved here from Des Moines when I was in 8th grade, after dancing since I was 4 I looked for a place to continue me education here... I was pointed to Cheries and lasted a year. I was use to getting lots of information from the owner, and the owner actually teaching the classes. I was so disappointed in the instruction from the girls barely older than me and so many things were done differently and not as hard technically from my instruction in Des Moines. When I was having a hard time adjusting how I had done things all my life so far I felt like I was given a hard time and was told to do better. Now my daughter is turning 3 and I am looking for a place to go and will not be going back to Cheries.
I am so glad we moved so close to this school! We really are lucky they decided to build the school across the street from us because I love the school and the staff. My oldest started school the first year it was built (3 years ago) and everything just2 keeps getting better. I have 4 kids and even though we will be out growing our place sooner than later I don't want to leave the area because I want all 4 of my kids to go to Linn Grove. It's amazing to see a principal so involved with the kids and classes. He seems to know all the names of the kids and knows what parents go with what kids. The teachers we have had so far are great to work with and really care about the kids and the education they receive.
Farmers State Bank cares about their customers! It's a great small bank but when it comes to products, such as their online banking, it doesn't feel like a small bank!
The customer service is top notch and friendly! My bank for life!
PROS: Great locations, great customer service
Won't go anywhere else for my groceries! The super targets and super walmarts have nothing on Hy-Vee!
Friendly employees, lots of different products to choose from, great bakery and AWESOME chineese food!
PROS: Awesome chineese food, employees are great!
This is the best "fancy" pizza I have ever had! Sure it costs a little more, but it's worth it!
Never have had a bad pizza from Tomasos, great everytime! Great Service also!
Not only is the pizza the best at the Marion Pizza Ranch, but the service is top notch!
The managment really does care about the customers and if something is wrong with your order they fix it asap!
Our new favorite place to eat! Dining in or taking it out, can't beat the service or price! And their delivery guys are the best!
PROS: Great Price for a great pizza!
We have been doing business at Halls for over 11 years as a family. Not only have they taken my senior pictures, my 2 brother's senior pictures, my sister's senior pictures, but also have taken pictures at mine and my sister's wedding!
I will never go to anyone again! The pictures Mike and Gordon take are OUTSTANDING. The staff at the store are wonderful and take care of you as a person. You feel like part of the family at Hall's photo! I take all my film to be developed there.
PROS: Great Service, Great Pictures, Great Prices!
I have told my husband on numerous occasions that if I could decorate my whole house with furniture from Smulekoffs I would be happy!
It's a great store, great quality of products and so many styles! The sales people have always been helpful and never pressure you. I love to go and just wander around, hopefully one day I can say almost my whole house is furnished by Smulekoffs!
PROS: Lots to choose from
My kids beg me to go so they can play with the Thomas trains. I go because I know I can find educational materials there. I think it's important to start teaching my kids at home before they go to school and this is the best store to get the materials you need!
Some may think it's a store just for teachers or homeschoolers, but it's not, it's for all parents! Great items, always changing and a great staff that can point you to what you need!
PROS: Great Educational toys!
CONS: None - unless you count not being able to drag my kids out of it!
