Sherri's is located right next to the high school I graduated from, thus I did a lot of stopping in there on my way to school. They are a little overpriced, but not so much that it becomes annoying. Sherri's also has tanning beds and movie rentals, and the employee's are always VERY friendly and helpful.
To say I grew up in a small town would be an understatement...I didn't even grow up in a town! Charlie's One Stop is the only place to get gas or anything you might need, unless you want to drive 15-20 minutes. The problem is that they hardly ever seem to be open, and when they are, they are grossly overpriced.
I have been tanning at Video Rayz for over 3 years now, and I absolutely love it. The beds are always clean and the workers are willing to make an appointment for you so you don't have to wait. They have a great selection of tanning oils and lotions and the beds are very hot. Video Rayz usually has a special going on making the prices very low.
Although Jasper Bowling Center is a popular hang out for some teens, it was never my hang out of choice. Most of the workers, along with the crowd smell of cigarette smoke and most are intoxicated. They have a strict dress code that even prevents tank-tops. I have never been in there without being hitting on someone more than twenty years older than me, and leaving smelling like an ashtray. I would not recommend going there unless you enjoy this sort of thing.
Even though Rainbow Foods is pretty convient in it's location (very near to the high school I attended) I would only shop there if I must. There are generally a friendly, helpful workers, but their high prices and not so clean store stops me from shopping there exclusively.
Jasper Beauty Academy is a wonderful place! Even though the girls here are supposed to be learning how to do things, they have always done a wonderful job with me. I have been getting my eyebrows waxed there for about three years for only THREE DOLLARS! I also got my hair fixed there for both my junior and senior proms and they did an awesome job. There is always a good atmosphere among the girls and I have always had good experiences there.
Scrap Etc. is a wonderful scrapbook store located in Patton Creek. Although, the merchandise is very trendy and the owner never re-orders, that can be a good thing for those of us that want to stay up to date. One of the best things about Scrap Etc. is that the owner's daughters are usually in store. These 3 and 4 year old girls are an absolute joy!
Contrary to the name, the Drug Store has many other things besides just medicine. There is always a new stock of purses and jewlery, along with a great mix of sorority and fraternity merchandise. Although the items can be a bit pricey, they are generally worth it!
I LOVE Queen and Company. They have the cutest picture frames and purses and I just adore all the crown things they have. It is a wonderful little shop to have around town. The prices are very resonable, and the employees are very helpful!
Sumter Theater is one of the best places to go in Lvingston! There is a new movie to see every week and the order is always there to answer questions.
