It seems like the MAB store is only there to keep employees employed, because they aren't very customer oriented. Looking for a custom color or small quantity is like asking them to come to your house and do the work. The other stores in town are much more friendly. The only reason I even go in there is because our home builder used a color from MAB for all the ceilings.
Trumbauersville is at the top of their game. Recent statistics reveal that they are close to being the top school in the county, and my daughter is living proof. She's in 1st grade and reading at several grade levels past that. She loves all the teachers, and the school is always immaculate. The staff is great, especially the principal. There's a big playground out back that gets use after hours and in the summer, too.
Our daughter spent a few years at Richland, and the teachers did what they were supposed to do. Despite all of the grumbling about QCSD, Richland's staff were always doing what was best for the kids.
There is NO air conditioning at Richland, but that's about to change with some new work. That's a good thing, because it used to get brutally hot in there, even in the winter.
Steve has turned out to be a great individual, not just a great attorney. We had to get some personal matters done recently, and he was courteous, friendly, and honest with us. The end result directly reflected his efforts, and we are very happy with his service. We felt like an old friend getting advice, not just a client with a checkbook
I had a problem with installing a disposal, and called Mr Rooter for some help. (On a Saturday). The guy came out and admitted that he didn't have much experience with disposals, and we sat down to figure it out. His boss was arrogant on the phone, and didn't know I was within earshot. he threw a huge number at the job and I guess he felt I would say OK. I balked and he told the guy to leave. The guy hung up and sat down with me and figured the whole process out, even coming up with a parts list to take to Lowes. No charge!
Bottom line, if you get this guy you'll be good, but I doubt all their guys are like this.
I check out this store about once every two weeks, because they're always bringing something new in. LOTS of Black and Decker tools, lots of shoes, and cheap name brand jeans. We bought a $125 rain coat in here for $8 once. A whole section of kitchen gadgets will get you out of a jam anytime.
They also have a big selectin of NASCAR, college ball, and major league items from local teams. Check it out and you're almost guaranteed to leave with something.
I love this place. If you need a quick toy or present for one of the kids or a birthday party, run into Ollies and you'll find it. Need a cheap tool to get you through a project, and don't want to spend a bunch on a high end tool? Check out Ollies. Even air compressors and generators. For light duty, their tools work just fine.
Lots of technical, history, and other type books, and computer games. Cheap holiday decorations and kitchenware. Rug remnants, some furniture...just a little of everything at bargain prices.
The Tavern house offers a lot of Mexican fare, mixed with a bit of American flair. The seafood is usually fresh tasting, but a little bland for a Mexican place. Great drinks and great prices, and not really that busy.
Parking is limited.
If you just want a six pack to go, go right ahead. But if you're looking for a decent night out with the wife or husband, forget it. This is a locals bar and they let you know it when you go in there. The place is dirty, the people are gruff, and the selection adequate only.
Home to the Bar Room Blitz, Casey's place is great. Lots of good food, good company, great entertainment. Jimmy has lots of great promotions, and the Blitz, a sports talk show. The parking situation can get tricky, especially on the busier nights of the year.
