The place is a great place to shop. It is clean and organized. It supports a great cause. Esthers house transitional housing for women in need. They have so many things to see. There is a lot of womens and childrens clothing and a quite a bit of mens clothes as well. (Not as much as womens though) There is also a great book room with such a variety. There is also a cute room with all kinds of kitchen items.
The prices are reasonable. Probably the same as Savers, and much less than Goodwill and Salvation Army. Grab a calendar of their daily specials. This is a great way to save even more. The clothing is in very good condition, although they have a 99 cent rack with lesser quality items.
Costa Pacific Roofing is one of the most reliable companies on the central coast. They do anything from a small leak repair to a complete re-roof job. I know the owner personally and know that his character is impecable. This translates into his work ethic. They are there when they say they will be. If there ever is a problem they will correct it in a timely manner.
One of the sister churches in San Jose (Light Of the World PAW) needed a roof on their building. I contacted Juan Gutierez and he went to give a estimate and gave a price for the church at 2/3 the price of other roofers. They figured it would take up to two months to complete the job and were surprised that it was done in three weeks.
His first language is spanish but does communicate very well in english. His accent is still very noticable. Overall his work speaks volumes for itself. Give them a call.
I was introduced to Toms Pro Auto Repair back in 2003 when I needed a smog for my truck. I took it to other places and was told I needed alot of work to get it to pass or it would be a gross poluter. A good mechanic friend recommended him so I asked him to give it a major tune up and then smog the vehicle so it would pass smog. If there was anything major wrong let me know beforehand. He did the work and called me at the end of the day to pick up the vehicle. When I looked at the bill I was shocked!! The total was a third of what the others shops told me just for the repair work.
Since then I have recommended many other friends and family and have had many thanks for the refferal. The only drawback is that he doesn't talk to much. He hears what is wrong with the vehicle and kinda nods, smiles, and says he'll call with a quote. Sometimes I've wondered is it going to be expensive this time and it is always a resonable price. The best thing is that he doesn't have you waiting forever for your vehicle, saying "the parts have'nt arrived" to mean that he hasn't got to your repair yet. It is always on a timely basis.
He is always busy with smogs for customers and dealers so make an appointment and you won't be disappointed.
