Atkins carries a huge selection of locally-grown produce, including their own apples. They have a deli and a bakery which produces fantastic cider donuts, which are a definite must-try. Prices are reasonable. I wish it weren't quite so far from where I live; I'd love to shop there all the time.
Sunderland Suds is a fairly basic laundromat. There are a lot of machines, and I have never had trouble with a machine not working properly. It could use a litte sprucing up, but that's purely cosmetic. Prices are about average for a laundromat. One complaint I have is that there's never any soap in the restroom.
The view from the top of the Pilgrim Monument is beautiful - on a clear day you can see all the way to Boston. The climb to the top isn't too bad - it's a nice workout though! The museum has a lot of interesting things on display, all related to Provincetown. It's well worth the admission price, which is a bargain.
Northampton Wools is a fairly small store, but they have a nice selection of yarns. They had some really cool yarns that I hadn't seen anywhere else. They have a good collection of patterns, and the employees are very friendly and helpful. Prices were about average for a yarn store. I will definitely return when I am in downtown Northampton.
Lawrence Automotive Diagnostics is a bit more expensive than most other auto repair shops, but their service is outstanding - they never make you feel stupid for coming in with a problem. My husband took his car in once to have it looked at and wasn't sure if he wanted to have the problem repaired. They diagnosed the problem and when he decided not to have the problem repaired they didn't charge him for the diagnosis. It's clear that they care about their customers, and they have always done an excellent job for us.
This is a pretty big used book store, which makes it great for browsing - it's a good place to spend an afternoon. I've purchased several books there (unusual for me - I almost always am "just looking" at bookstores). Prices are about the same as most other used book stores (1/2 off cover price, I believe). You'll find more bargains at the public library book sale, but The Dusty Bookshelf is there all year round and is much less hectic.
Waxman is an example of a really great local store. They definitely know what they're doing when they make candles, and their pride in their work shows - they provide instructions for how to properly burn candles. Prices are higher than you'd pay at somewhere like Target or Wal-Mart, of course, but it's definitely worth the extra cost for the excellent quality. There's a good selection of non-scented candles, too, for those who might not want scented candles.
They have pretty much any kind of antiques you might be looking for - the store is huge! I had passed by it many times and had no idea it was so huge. Prices are a little high, but the selection is so good that I personally am willing to overlook that. It's a blast to browse here.
Liberty Hall is a great place to see a movie. They show independent/artsy films. Prices are a bit high, but they have a 2-for-1 day and a student night, which make it affordable, at least on certain nights of the week. Also, they serve beer, including a few selections from Free State, and have special prices on pints on (I believe) Wednesday and Thursday nights. Definitely my favorite place to see a movie in Lawrence (not that there's that many choices).
Nothing really stands out about this bowling alley. It was clean (though I didn't go into the restrooms) and well-maintained. My main complaint, though, is that they announced closing 8 minutes before they were going to close, and then at closing time made everyone stop bowling, even if they were almost finished. A little more warning would have been nice, especially since they don't let you finish your game when it's closing time.
