I'll start by saying that the programs here are wonderful. My son loved it. He loved playing and singing. He loved bubble time and the parachute. The equipment would be set up differently each week but the objects were familiar. It was very nice and we felt comfortable. Unfortunately, parents will bring their sick children here and get other children sick. My son got sick a few times after going here including a skin condition that took months to heal. My doctor said that it was common to get from playgroups and this was the only one my son attended and we were not in contact with other kids or playgrounds. I know you run the risk of getting sick anytime you are in contact with people but I felt that it was excessive with parents not using common sense.
I have taken my dog here a few times for overnight boarding while we have gone on vacation. They also provide doggie daycare. Dogs must have all shots and be spayed or neutered to attend. If your dog doesnt have these shots, they offer vet services so you can get them done there. I do like the new facilty but honestly, it isn't about the building, it's about the high quality care that I know my dog receives here. I feel very comfortable and confident in leaving my dog in their care. I will continue to use them.
This is a typical discount tobacco store. The store has your typical tobacco products. They have a large variety of cigarette brands along with quite a few cigars. The prices seem better than most grocery stores and gas stations. They sell loose tobacco and supplies to make your own cigarettes. If you and your spouse both smoke, this option could save you lots of money. They also sell some pipes and rolling papers. I have seen them check IDs so I wouldn't try to buy from here if you are underage.
This is a smaller store that sells cigars and smokers gifts. This is an expensive, high end gift store. Perfect for a cigar smoker who has everything. They also have quite a few "manly" figurines. They mostly have gifts for men but most women could find something of interest here. They do have good sales on occassion but you just have to shop around and wait for discounts. I have done a bit of shopping here for my brother and he has always loved the gifts.
I just love Holcombs. A friend took me to the store in Dayton but I live closer to the one in Cincinnati so I have been going there. They have everything that a teacher or parent would need to educate a child. They have workbooks, decorations, toys, supllies and so much more. The toys are educational in nature but are fun for the kids. Children also love to visit this store. I actually decorated my son's room using supllies from this store. He is 3 and we decorated his room to look like a kindergarten classroom. He loves it.
I fell in love with this store the very first time I went it. I made necklaces for my son's class while we were on vacation and that sparked my interest in jewelry making. I have found that Ohio Bead & Jems has had everything that I have needed or wanted. I am still a beginner so I have much to learn but the staff has always been able to answer my questions. They have been able to give me more ideas and better ways methods to acheive my goals. The prices are good and it's a great location.
This is decent gas station and convenience store. It is older and could use some remodeling but it has what you need. I have never had a quality issue with the gas.The employees are friendly and helpful. I have heard them give directions many times and they do seem eager to help. The location of this gas station is probably what has kept it in business. It is on state route 48 which is a main connector road in this area. I have been satisfied with all of my trips here and would recommend this location to everyone.
It doesn't seem like guys go to "barber shops" anymore but this place makes me feel comfortable. EVen though there are men and women getting their hair cut, I do not feel out of place. Everyone is friendly but not in an uncomfortable way. I usually call to make an appointment just to make sure that I won't have to wait but they seem able to squeeze people in without much trouble. The parking is great since I can always park just a few feet from the front door. The prices are great. They have always done a good job on my ahir but I have a basic cut.
My wife and I love classic cars. We worked in Lebanon and then lived yera for several years before stopping in at Vic's. We had seen his cars in his tiny lot all this time but weren't sure if we should stop in. Finally, we did. They helped us locate the exact car that we had always dreamed of owning. We not only received the help that we needed but I feel like we made some friends. Everyone should stop in for a look.
With the internet, I am not too sure if travel agents are used as much as a few years ago but I was very happy with my experience at AAA. First of all, I didn't have AAA so don't let the name fool you. While they do offer the AAA brand of travel services, anyone can go in to book a vacation. The best thing was how they were able to answer all my questions particularly about travel insurance and using travelers checks. The internet is nice too look up flights and prices but nothing beats a live person across the desk from you. The staff was great. The office was very warm and inviting.
