Blinds to go is ABSOLUTELY the place to get the best quality/price combination when shopping for blinds. You can find cheaper, premade ones at the big chain stores, but BTG offers a huge selection and the people in there will help you choose a style that fits your house. Bottom line, the selection is what keeps you coming back.
We always have raisin bread as a part of Christmas Eve dinner, and the Egypt Star has the best anywhere. Always fresh, always tasty, and always delicious. We've tried other breads, but nobody does it like Egypt!
I took a then-new Explorer into Dave's and thought there would be a problem, because it was the first of the new style. No problem, they were up to it and had the exact filters I needed. Very courteous staff that are good at explaining what they do, even to the novice housewives that were asking the questions. The waiting area could be a little cleaner, but you can live with that, given the excellent service.
Garges has a nice little setup here, and it gets a good share of business. In the summer, they open up early enough for me to get a wash before I get to work, which is convenient. The guys running it are young but friendly, and they hand dry your car when done. Price is good for the area.
Nothing special here, just a convenient spot with a lot of bays. The lines can fomr quickly on the weekends, and nobody pays attention to the signs about moving along quickly. They need more vacuums to keep up with the amount of cars that are usually in there. Planty of times I've had to leave without vacuuming because there were no spots open. They have some BEFORE the wash bays, but that just slows everything down.
Pay attention to the foamy brushes...I think kids get in there and rub them in the dirt and hang them up. Could ruin a decent paint job quickly.
Quaker cleaners looks like it's been there forever, and the prices seem to be from back then, too. Nice people, they do a nice job all of the time, but they don't work too quick.
Carters has a fantastic selection of the finest furniture in the area, and all of it is made right there. They will take your ideas and create something truly unique for you.
They have quite a lot of decorating stuff, too, mostly in the antique style. The prices seem to be a bit elevated, but the quality of their stuff cannot be challenged.
Sears is right in the middle of Qtown, and has all the necessities you would need. The prices aren't as good as Lowes down the street, but they ahve Craftsman tools. I like Sears tools so that's where I head when I need one. They have a decent selection of paint and miscellaneous hardware, but I think they are still there because of the tool selection.
If you need somethng big like a loader, light platform, or high reach, then head to ORE. They have a huge selection of stuff, and it's all in good condition. The staff is great at helping you learn how to operate the equipment, and the prices are about average.
Take a stroll through time and check out Benners. If you have an old house and need some old-type hardware, Benners is the best shot at finding it.
They offer rentals on steam cleaners, do screen repairs, and a lot of the services that you just can't get from the big chains. And honestly, where can you buy quoits? Benners has them!
