I used John Franklin last year for my wedding. We rented 8 tuxedos from them and we couldn't have been more pleased with the quality and fit. A few members of the bridal party went to John Franklin's about 2 months before the wedding to be fitted. The staff was very nice and knowledgable. The tuxedos arrived on time and they all fit. They do alterations on site in case something doesn't fit just right. They were very professional and have been in this business for a long time. The prices were on par with other rental places in the area, but the quality of tuxedos was much better at John Franklins.
I have used Huntersville Tile for a number of renovations at my home. The tile work that Mark does is absolutely incredible. He is very meticulous in his work and works very quickly. He does the job right, making sure that it will stand the test of time. The selection of tiles avaliable in the showroom is fantastic. Their prices are great for the quality of work that they do. I would not hesitate to recommend Huntersville Tile to anyone needing tile work done.
I cannot say enough good things about the Princeville Resort. My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon here and had a fabulous time! The hotel is absolutely beautiful, the grounds are lush and the staff is so accomodating. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet, it is out of this world! The view from our room was spectacular and the rooms are very large. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Precision Printing offers a wide variety of printing and copying services. They can make banners, signs, booklets,etc. I have used them on a number or occasions for various copying needs. They have black & white and color self-service copiers. The also have staff on hand to help you if you need it. They have a large variety of specialty papers. Their location couldn't be better, and their prices are great.
Frame Warehouse offers a great selection of frames and mats to choose from. I have taken several things there to be matted and framed and have been very pleased with the work they did. They prices are great and the turnaround is very fast. I also took some items to be put in a shadow box and the staff was very helpful in picking out what would look and work best with the pieces.
Sports Etc. has a great selection of soccer and lacrosse gear, shoes, apparel, etc. The owner is knowlegable about the equipment he carries. However, I do tend to think that their prices are a little high. They are located in a commercial business park, if you don't know it's there you may have a little trouble finding it.
Jesse Brown's has a great selection of branded camping gear, shoes and apparel. They also offer private or group fly fishing lessons, which my wife recently gave me as a gift. They are a specialty store in an upscale part of town, so their prices do tend to be a little high, but their employees really know what they are talking about.
