I have met the friendliest people in this store. The customers seem very happy and the owners are always very cordial and happy as well. I guess I wish the prices weren't quite as high as they are, but they are a smaller store and the prices are worth it for the smiling faces. They have significant sales around the holidays which really help.
This shoe store is the only one I have been to at which I have actually remembered the sales person. He knew all about cleaning leather, which was very helpful, and he ended up selling me a can of this stuff that cleans white leather shoes very nicely. My shopping experience was short and efficient, two things I can't go without...
This particular Men's Warehouse is where I get all of my suits. They have friendly (and very attractive) sales associates that were very helpful. However, their selection wasn't as diverse as I would have liked. Last time I went, I ended up finding a suit that fit very nicely, though, and I'm a bit of an odd size. Their rewards program is also very nice if you spend a lot on dress apparel.
I was very impressed with Lens Crafters, even though I didn't have insurance when I went. The prices seemed fair and the staff was friendly and helpful. I felt I had to wait a little longer than I wanted to, but their efficiency after I was seen seemed to make up for it. I would recommend this location if quality is one of your primary concerns.
Kragen has been my place for high quality auto parts at good prices. They have everything stocked from repair manuals to alternators. The staff has always been very helpful in helping me find specific applications for my vehicle. The store is larger than many auto parts stores and has a wide selection of oil and air filters for specific cars and trucks.
I used to get my hair cut here all the time and I can't say I was ever disappointed. I never had any very substantial waits and the store was always clean. I found that it was still helpful to call before going to avoid a ten or fifteen minute wait at the most.
I went in for a haircut on Monday, Feb. 7 and found quite a crowded waiting room. I waited for about a half hour before getting my haircut. The lady who cut my hair did a good job, but wasn't too interested in talking, it seemed. If you call ahead and just want a no nonsense haircut, then it's not such a bad place. Go to www.supercuts.com and print out a coupon for $2 off your haircut before you go.
I love visiting Gary at Valencia Imports because I always know he will be honest with me and tell me what my car needs. He has worked on a 1990 Honda Civic for me and a 1994 Honda Accord and done an excellent job on everything from replacing a front axle to repairing a defective power window. I would recommend him to anyone.
I attended Valencia High School the first year it opened in 1994 and graduated in 1998. I presume most new schools suffer from the same problems that plagued Valencia upon its opening: limited classes, limited facilities and programs, etc. The school was already beginning to greatly improve in these areas by the time I graduated. Now, I tutor a student that attends Valencia and the academic environment and resources appear to have improved tremendously. Practice ACT and SAT tests are given, specialized and unique classes like Japanese and American Sign Language are taught.
The facilities are new and ever-expanding. I participated in the volleyball team when I was there and was impressed with the money available to the team. We worked for our own fundraisers, but practiced in a very up-scale gymnasium and had excellent equipment in good condition.
I would consider Valencia High School to be a very good school and I would support sending my own children there.
