I always take my family's cars here to get smog checked. The guy who's usually there to run it is really nice. He's super quick when it comes down to doing the test, and the wait area isn't too bad.
This a decent shop to buy party supplies from. They also have a good selection of fresh flowers and arrangements. I usually stop by to buy a couple cans of silly string when my friends birthday comes around.
I went in here once last year when I was looking for some Koi for my fish pond. They had a pretty good selection of salt and fresh water fish, and the accessories to maintain such aquariums. The prices were also pretty decent and the staff was very helpful in giving me advice for maintaining my pond.
A good sized pet store. Much closer to home than Petsmart or Petco. They sell the basics for any house pet. They also offer pet vaccinations every once in a while. I usually stop by for a couple of chew toys or treats for my dog, and I'm too lazy to drive the closest Petsmart.
This is a bright yellow bike warehouse across the street from Walmart. I saw that they had the fold up bikes there and wanted to see if I would be interested in buying one (so I could just put it in my trunk and ride around campus on it). The bike itself wasn't that great of a deal, but when I looked around they had an even bigger selection of bikes and accessories than I thought. There's a bike for all ages there.
They have a pretty good selection of different yogurt flavors. My favorite is the cookies and cream. You grab whichever sized cup you want, fill it up with the yogurt you want, and top it off with fruits, candy, syrups or other toppings. The price is well worth it as $.38/oz, but be careful, because you might go overboard and have to pay much more than you wanted.
Revolution is a good spot if you're looking for the latest apparel from the hip hop world. The store has a nice atmosphere and has recently moved to a bigger spot in the mall. I usually go in and buy a solid shirt or two as presents to my cousins. Very decent prices, and well worth a look around.
This place has a good selection of cheap formal and casual wear for women's. It's located in the same shopping plaza as Albertsons. It's a pretty big store, and they have a good variety of clothes, but some of it isn't that well made. I've gone in a couple times with my sister, and though she found a bunch of cute clothes to wear, she never bought anything, the prices and quality doesn't match.
I usually go to this place if I'm in need of buying a Jersey as a present for someone who's a big fan of San Diego teams. Their selection is pretty good and the prices are average. They have everything for anyone, whatever size you are, even children's, and everything is authentic, how can you go wrong with that?
If you just want to grab some candy and chips, or maybe a soda and some alcohol, this is a good place to go. It's pretty well maintained and the guy there is very helpful. I usually go in to grab some chips and a lottery ticket on my way to work or school. It's in a great spot with lots of parking, but kind of scary when you go at night.
