There are a few pet places around, but my favorite is Mike's. They always have what I need in stock, and the prices are competitve. In fact, they sell my dog's favorite treats for quite a bit less than the place in Pompton Lakes. They also have a better variety of items. I also appreciate the coupons and specials that they offer.
This place has had several owners and several names, but the current owners are doing a great job. San Giorgio's is a little place, tucked behind the liquor store on Boonton Avenue -- but it's worth finding. The fish dishes, my personal favorite, are excellent. The prices are very reasonable, and BYOB is always nice. In the warmer weather, there is outdoor seating too. Call for reservations, because it's packed on the weekends.
We've taken our children to Bergen West Pediatrics since they were born. We like all of the doctors in the group, and they have very accomodating hours. The nursing staff are pleasant and good with the kids, and the office staff are helpful. They are thorough without being overly aggressive.
We have worked with Terry's Auto Body twice in the past year. In both instances, Terry's staff was extremely professional and organized which made the experience less painful. They are also a pre-approved auto body shop for New Jersey Manufacturer's insurance who sets high standards for those shops they give this status to. Our work was done as promised and when promised.
Over 2 years ago I was recommended to this new gym that opened up on the 2nd floor of an office building. I've been addicted ever since. The owners, Jane and Jill, are great people and great personal trainers, as well as great role models for those of us who need to be inspired. The gym is small, but very personable and comfortable. They offer personal training, and have 2 pilate towers with all the latest gadgets, exercise equipment, and a nice variety of classes to take. There are showers available, and a room (unsupervised) to leave your kids in if you need to bring them. Best of all, no contracts to sign -- just pay as you go.
We have worked with Brad and the folks at Glenwild Gardens for the 12 years that we have lived in Bloomingdale. They've done landscaping, drainage, and clean up projects for us and we have always been pleased with the work. Brad is responsive and pleasant to work with too. I've also attended one of the how-to classes that they hold occasionally and learned alot. Since they are often helping out the schools and town in various ways, I always make a point to go there for my gardening and landscape needs.
Bill, of Wood and Pipes, has come to our rescue many times. He is accessible, reliable, thorough, and knowledgeable. Great plumbers are hard to come by, but we found one.
We really enjoy Bella Sera. The owner is always personable and goes out of his way to accomodate us on a busy night. We held our twins' communion there 3 years ago and they did a wonderful job. We often get take out and the portions are generous and the food is still as good as if you eat it in their dining room. My children love the penne vodka. BYOB is a great plus too.
Dr. Loeb is wonderful! My son and I have both used his services, and our teeth look great. Dr. Loeb's office and professional staff are courteous, helpful, pleasant, etc. etc. etc -- which makes such a big difference. Dr. Loeb is very personable, professional and thorough. He is amazingly on schedule -- we've never waited more than 5 minutes. I believe his prices are very competitive -- at least compared to what I've heard others say. He offers payment plans, and a discount for upfront payment. We've been very very pleased, and will bring our other 2 children there as well.
Lisa, the owner, loves dogs....she owns several of those huge Mastifs. She is always so sweet with our dog who is so very nervous to be there. She does just what I ask, and our dog gets a cute bandana at each visit. We've been going for almost 2 years and we've not had any problems. Appointments are fairly easy to get (which is NOT the case at other places), and the price is reasonable. Lisa also offers "doggie day care". Her mom works the front desk and is very very sweet. Parking is easy.
