Every time we are in Muskogee, my husband and I love to visit Main Street USA. This wonderful antiques store has been in business for many years, and it is no surprise. It is set up like an indoor flea market, with different booths featuring many different types of items. They have fabulous items for men, women and children alike. It is a wonderful place to find gifts for those hard to shop for friends and relatives, as there is always something new. The prices vary from booth to booth, so there are very expensive items, as well as items that are more fit for a tight budget.
Main Street USA is a wonderful place to go for a day of fun shopping and spending some time with those you love.
PROS: New items all the time
After being out of school for many years raising a family, I decided it was time to go back for a degree. I was nervous, of course, but the people at Connors State College helped me to get everything done, including financial aid, enrollment, even helping me find the classes that I would need to take for my desired degree.
They offer classes in Warner, at their main campus, as well as in Muskogee, which makes it much easier for those of us who do not want to commute.
The teachers at Connors are wonderful! It is a wonderful place to really go and enjoy learning. You can take as many or as few classes per semester as you choose, and they even have accelerated classes, where you can earn a full semester's credit in a few short weeks during the summer.
They offer all the clubs and activities as other colleges, that help you to really get everything out of your college experience. They also offer free tutoring to students who need it.
Child care is offered on the campus in Warner for those who need it.
PROS: Child care on campus, Accelerated classes available
Tulsa Welding School is a great place for anyone looking for a career! They have classes as short as 3 months, or you can even become a master welder in as little as 7 months!
My husband was interested in taking classes at Tulsa Welding School. They helped him through every step of getting enrolled, finding financial aid, everything he would need. They enrolled him in the evening classes, so he could keep working during the day. They have wonderful teachers, who really make sure that you understand everything that you are doing.
My husband loved going to school at Tulsa Welding School. He had a great sense of pride in what he was learning, and was able to quickly find a new job that he enjoyed, and paid him much more than he was previously earning.
PROS: Flexible schedules, financial aid, short classes

My husband knows that I work hard, and he knows that I get easily stressed. Fortunately, he also loves to pamper me. He got me my first appointment at Integrative Health Center a couple months ago. It was wonderful! They pamper you from the moment you walk in the door! It is such a wonderful experience, and after one visit, I walk out the door feeling so refreshed and ready to face another busy day.
Their massage therapists are all licensed, and they know how to give you the massage you need. For instance, I have a back injury, which requires a different type of massage. They are all very professional, and make you feel completely at ease.
Their prices are wonderful as well. They offer after hours appointments for those who work during the day.
Definitely a place I would recommend as a gift, or as a treat for yoursefl.
PROS: After hours appointments, gift certificates
We recently rented an apartment from Shadow Lakes Properties in Noble. The people who run Shadow Lakes Properties are wonderful people. They are willing to work with you, and you can tell they take pride in their properties and tenants.
The problem I have had is with their maintenance. Our apartment was supposed to be ready to move in. We got the key, came in, and oh, what a mess!!! There was trash throughout the apartment, an extra sink and stove sitting in the middle of the kitchen floor, and the kitchen sink and garbage disposal was not hooked up.
We cleaned up the mess, and after several times promising he would be here to fix the sink and garbage disposal, the maintenance man finally hooked up the sink, although the hot and cold water are backwards. He then told us he would be back to fix the garbage disposal. It has been a month, and he has never been back. My husband finally went in there and fixed it.
I really like the people who run Shadow Lakes Properties, and I would recommend renting from them... I just wish they would get more reliable maintenance workers.
PROS: Very good people to rent from
CONS: Maintenance is horrible
Anderson's Furniture & Appliance store in Norman is a great place to find used furniture, appliances, antiques and collectibles! One of the fantastic things about Anderson's Furniture & Appliances is that they also service they appliances they sell, so you know that you will be getting a quality appliance when you buy from them. They also offer warranties, so if you do have any problems, they come right out and take care of them.
I also love this place because they offer so many different services, all in one place. Using their services once or twice, you come to find that they are reliable, so it is easy to know who to call in the future.
Their store is a fun place to shop, and the customer service is wonderful. They will help you find exactly what you need, in the price range that you can afford.
We will definitely buy from them many times in the future.
PROS: Great service, great prices, warranties
I recently suffered an injury due to negligence by a physician. Being new to the area, I thumbed through the phone book to find an attorney to ask some questions. The Nedwick Law Offices has a large ad in the yellow pages, and it states that they specialize in many types of law, so I decided to call.
I was immediately frustrated, speaking to the receptionist who answered the phone. She was very rude and hateful. She acted as if they did not have time for answering any questions. She did not even allow me to speak with Mr. Nedwick, or any other attorney.
After I hung up the phone, I immediately called another attorney who took my case.
I really think that the Nedwick Law Offices should train their receptionist in customer service, as I believe they will lose a lot of potential customers because of the way they are treated when they call.
CONS: Horrible customer service
We recently moved to Noble, from Norman, and were so pleasantly pleased when we enrolled our kindergarten aged son in Katherine I Daily Elementary School! It is a small school, where students get more personal time and instruction from the teachers. The teachers, as well as the rest of the staff, really care about their students.
My son's school, Mrs. Morris, is absolutely a blessing! I had been frustrated by the larger school he was in before, as I felt he wasn't really learning anything. I work with him at home, so I know that he loves to learn, and is capable of doing many things that they were not doing. On his second day of class with Mrs. Morris, he came home spelling colors for me!
Mrs. Morris sends their work home, so I am able to see what my son is working on and learning, as well as what I can do at home to help him.
I volunteered at his class party yesterday, and again, was so impressed to see the way Mrs. Morris interacts with her students! I had been considering home schooling my son before we enrolled him at Katherine I Daily, but now, am glad that I made the decision to go ahead and enroll him in Mrs. Morris's class!
PROS: Personalized attention, wonderful teachers
