This was the first store I stopped at to find a halloween costume after seeing an ad in the newspaper. It turned out that this store is small and dirty. They offer used clothes that seem like they came straight from the '80s. As for their costume section, they offer costumes to rent out for outrageous prices. To top it off, they offer only about a dozen costume, all which are dusty and old. I was very unpleased with Surplus Sids and would not recommend it to anyone.
My mom and I decided to check out this store to see if we could find some cheap antique furniture to furnish our house more. We found ourselves leaving the store within 5 minutes of getting there. The store was dirty and unorganized. The one employee did not offer to help us with anything. The prices were high and unreasonable, and the selection was not even that great. Needless to say, we did not waste any more of our time in that store.
Schoolkids Records is my favorite store to go to satisfy any of my musical needs. The store is nicely decorated and very organized. Best of all, they have a lot of older music that most stores do not carry. I found and bought a Hendrix cd the other week without a problem. This place is two thumbs up for having a diverse selection of music with helpful employees.
I broke my collar bone after playing a game of flag football and had to be rushed to the Rex Urgent Care in Cary to be treated. After about sitting in the waiting room for nearly 45 minutes in excruciating pain, I was finally treated. The doctor basically threw a slinger on me, and prescribed some medication. He was not very friendly and did not give me good advice on how I should make sure it does not reinjure itself. When the bill came in the mail, my dad almost fainted. I do not recommend anyone going to this facility unless it is a real emergency.
It was two days before Halloween and I still did not have a costume. I decided to check out Costumes Wigs & Masks to see if I could find a costume in time for Halloween. When I entered, I noticed that the store was very organized and had a nice layout of costumes. I was able to find a Dracula costume for under 30 bucks! The deals at this store were superb, and the staff was very kind. I definitely know where to get my Halloween costume for next year!
I stumbled upon this store while walking down Franklin Street one afternoon. I decided to check out CD Alley to see if they had the new Foo Fighters cd. To my surprise, the store not only had the CD they also had a huge selection of other popular music. I ended up buying two more CD's that I happened to notice while I was there. Interestingly enough, they also had foreign genres of music as well. In addtion, the employees were very friendly and helped me track down the CD I was looking for!
Micheals is the perfect place to shop for any arts and crafts supplies. I made many trips to this store to buy a bunch of things for my school projects. Their prices are cheap, and the employees will help you with anything you need. Micheals is a great store and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for any art supplies to create a project.
After my dad complained about the air conditioner breaking down I decided to call ASAC&H to see if I could save it for him. The next day a repairman came and after about an hour and a half fixed the air conditioner. The price I had to pay for labor and parts definitely made up for the cost of buying a whole new air conditioner!
Located in the heart of Chapel Hill, the Carolina Inn is the place to stay if your looking to live in luxury. This place is decorated elegantly and the customer service treats you right. However, living like a king comes at a hefty pricetag. But if you asked me, the two days I stayed there were well worth it!
I ended up somewhere in Durham and I desperately needed a ride back to the UNC campus. I decided to call Tar Heel Taxi, and in no time, I was on my way. The driver was very friendly and even sparked a conversation with me. After a smooth and comfortable ride back, the I paid the driver a reasonable price and gave him a good tip. I now know who to call next time I need a ride in the Chapel Hill area!
