I stopped and used this facility once while I was in the neighborhood. I found the facility to be clean and orderly, and it was actually pretty quiet the entire time I was there. I would use the facility again if I were in the vicinity.
PROS: Reasonable rates
A friend of mine that lives in Wrigleyville uses this cleaners exclusively. She borrowed a jacket from me and returned it to me after having it dry cleaned by this company. I thought they did an excellent job, and if they were in my neighborhood, I would certainly use them.
PROS: good quality work
Part of the attraction of using this dry cleaning and laundry facility is its nice and attractive location. Feeling safe and comfortable late at night while doing laundry is a definite plus. Their staff is experienced and professional, and there is usually someone available to assist if need be.
PROS: good location and reasonable rates
I have used Noyes Cleaners on numerous occasions and have always been satisfied with their service (which I can't say for every cleaner I have used). They are always courteous and professional, and I usually get my clothes back within 3 days.
PROS: Reliable and reasonable rates
To me this store is like going on a treasure hunt. Sometimes you have to weed through a lot of not so great items to find that diamond in the rough. While great bargains can be had here, this type of shopping is not for everyone. Lots to look at.
PROS: some good bargains to be found
CONS: quality may not be the best
I have to agree with the previous poster as Animal 911 has an excellent staff and provides a much needed service. They are always available, even at times when no one else is. They are experienced and provide great care.
PROS: after hours care
I took my cat to this hospital once when he was very ill. The vet was very good, and the staff kept me informed of his condition even while I was at work. I felt comfortable with the vet and staff.
PROS: Complete Care
I have used Main Street Jewelers on a couple of different occasions for repair work. I had them fix a gold necklace and a watch. Both times they did a good job, and I was able to pick up my pieces in less than a week. They also have a great selection of higher end watches.
PROS: Reasonable repair rates
The Dancing Bear Gallery in Evanston features jewelry designed in the Native American style with silver, gold, and turquoise. In addition, they also sell Native American crafts such as handmade rugs and drums.
CONS: limited to one style
If you have never been to Eve's Gallery, you are in for a wonderful treat. All of her jewelry is designed by hand, and Eve is often in the studio to greet the customers. I was fortunate to have been in when she was working, and I got a chance to meet her and discuss some of her beautiful designs. There are just so many beautiful items it is hard to decide.
PROS: beautiful hand made pieces
CONS: expensive (but well worth it)
