We very much enjoyed the tour at the Delaware Copper Mine. The history of the area really comes alive during their tour. We do this tour in the hot summer, which is great because the mine is alway at 46 degrees, so it's very refreshing then! The gift shop is neat too, although the souvineers are a little over priced. I'd recommend the tour to anyone interested in seeing how the copper mines worked!
There isn't much to this store unless you are into snowmobiles, boats, and 4wheelers! I did have my boat repaired there once and it was repaired quickly and the price wasn't too high, but the customer service just made me laugh! We had to just drive through the yard and pick up our boat ourselves, it was hard to find, and then when we did find it, we had to ask them to move another one out of the way. Just found it odd that they didn't get the boat for us. I'd go back if I was in the market for boat repair again, and possibly when I'm in the market for a 4wheeler.
I wasn't too pleased with Nite Lite Magic. The worker was unfriendly, however maybe she was just having a bad day. The items were so overpriced! They do have halloween costumes, which is pretty much the only local store I know that has them, but they are quite pricey. I did buy one 2 years ago, but haven't purchased another one. I probably won't shop there again. I get turned off quickly when the customer service lacks so much.
I personally do not shop at Pat's in Calumet anymore. The cashiers are downright rude, very unfriendly. They make you feel like you are bothering them when they have to ring you up. Unfortunately there is only 1 other choice in Calumet to do grocery shopping, which is the reason we now shop in Houghton for our groceries. I was also having a problem with being over charged on my items a lot, when I complained I didn't get much help, so I wrote a letter to the owner who is very involved at the store and never even heard from him. Very disappointed customer, which is the reason I took my $100+ dollars a week elsewhere.
I've tried 3 different accountants and am so happy I've decided to stick with Rukkila's CPA firm. I am so pleased with the knowledge and helpful service I get from the accountants that work here. Everytime I have a question, it's answered the same day. This is the best accounting firm in the Keweenaw, hand's down!
Copper Country Cinema 5 is the place I like to go to if I'm going "out to the movies". Their movie/ticket prices are reasonable and they have a larger selection than any other theatre in town. The prices at the concession stand though, WOW! It's so expensive to order a popcorn and a pop! But what's a movie without it, right? So I usually end up paying an arm and a leg or two just to take my family out to the movies! The seating is pleasant though, comfortable seating!
There are two video stores in Calumet, in my humble opinion, two stores in such a small area just aren't necessary. Also, their prices are higher than the other store! I've been here a couple of times, but their prices just aren't any better than the other store. The other store has been around for much longer too, so I'll continue to stick with what I know and love!
If you like to support LOCAL businesses, then this is the video store to go to. They've been around a long time, and their selection of video's/dvd's continues to grow. They don't charge and arm and a leg to rent a video, and they have daily specials. The staff is friendly as well, and it's easy to rent from! I'd much rather support the local businesses than the chain stores!
If you like to gamble, then this is really your only option in the area. Comparing it to other casino's, it's just small and they don't have a huge variety of anything. Their drink prices are reasonable and their staff is friendly, but I don't go there often because it's quite a hike from my house.
The Backroom has a huge variety of items! They have everything from cd's to candles, tshirts, to XXX items! And also a huge used book room on a seperate floor. Their items are not overpriced either. They will specially order almost anything for you if you ask, which is a great service they provide! I love the Backroom store!
