I've gone to the Book House just to find gifts for friends and family. I like that they are a small book store that you can find your way around without having to ask for help. The staff are very helpful and I also like the fact that they plan special guests for all ages.
I shopped at the Parent & Teacher store frequently while working as a nanny and daycare teacher. I found they had a great selection of workbooks that ranged from preschool age through middle/high school at a good price.
I also like that they have a good selection of toys that aren't usually found at many chain toy stores.
I've used Marjos Beauty Salon for 15 years and still find myself wondering how I was lucky enough to find them. Bonnie (the owner) does my hair and she always makes my life so much easier. The prices are unbelievable, especially when I hear what others pay for the same service. Every now and then we really do hit the lottery!
I've gone to the Funplex since I was in high school. They have miniature golf, batting cages, gocarts and other amusements. I've only gone to play miniature golf but I enjoy the theming of each hole. It's definately an inexpensive place to go have fun.
I remember going here as a child and last year I took my daughter there. They have a decent selection of little kid rides for a decent price. My daughter had a great time and I was happy I could ride with her without having to give a ticket (as I've experienced as some fairs).
I think we'll end up with a trip to Hoffmans for the next few summers.
We've been to several bowling alleys over the past few months and really enjoyed going to the Playdium. The staff was very attentive and helpful whenever we had an issue with the ball returning or scoring. It's clean and just a fun place to go for an evening out with friends.
I've run into Fairview Wines & Spirits to stock up a few times before having a party. Their friendly staff is always eager to help you find what you're looking for.
I will definately continue to do business with them.
We've stopped at Thruway Beverages a few times to stock up before having a party. They offer a great variety of beer (some that you can't find in local grocery stores) and soda at good prices.
We started taking our cat here when she was just a kitten. From the time I called to make the appointment to when we took the kitten in I received wonderful service. They handled the kitten with great care and she's very healthy and happy. They also send in reminder notices for the cat to be brought back in for other shots and immunizations.
I've shopped at Hummingbird Garden a few times and love to just look around at all the many unique items they sell. I've popped in quickly to buy cards before going to bridal and baby showers and always find the perfect one. I would suggest just stopping by to see everything they have to offer...you'll probably find a gift for someone you care about.
