Big showroom filled with quality cribs and nursery furniture (also have children's furniture but i'm not familiar with that). The cribs are fairly large and somewhat pricey ($600 & up) and may not be suitable if you don't have a spacious nursery. Good stuff, though.
I needed to have a dress altered and spoke to the owner about it via phone. She was very pleasant and told me to come on in. When i arrived, however, the seamstress told me the work couldn't be done and refused even to look at the dress. I suspect the woman just didn't want to deal with me because i arrived 10 minutes before closing. Too bad I'd just spent an hour in traffic trying to get to the shop. The store, incidentally, seems to rely heavily on "Beverly Hills" as a selling point but that's a bit misleading. The store is nowhere near 90210, geographically and aesthetically.
On the plus side, I will say that the owner is very nice.
As titled, this store is huge and has just about everything you could ever want for a baby. Wide variety of cribs, strollers, car seats and accessories. My one complaint is that there's often a long line to check out. Last time i was there, I asked a woman at the returns counter if she could ring up my purchase (she had no one in line). She said no, sent me back to the line... and promptly rang up the next person who walked up to her! Hence the 2 star rating.
I've been to this store a few times looking for infant items and have found the selection to be limited. Boys' clothes are blue, girls' are pink and there's not much variation beyond that. There seems to be more selection for children's clothing. The items are moderately priced, but almost everything goes on sale at some point.
Sees has the best chocolates (they always offer you a sample when you enter the store) but my favorite are the lollipops. Big chunky lollipops that come in flavors like peanut butter, chocolate and coffee. Great gift item!
(all they need to carry is groceries). Aside from that, Target carries just about everything else, and at decent prices. The only thing i found to be disappointing was the maternity clothes. They look much better in magazine ads but in reality they're polyester and not especially comfortable.
This particular location is a zoo on weekends so expect to inch into the parking lot.
I like Borders as much as the next person, but occasionally it's nice to peruse shelves that aren't so... cookie cutter. This store also has a great selection of movie & television scripts, at decent prices.
Great place for both kids and adults. Clean and well-maintained. Bring a cap if you're going to use the batting ranges (to wear under the mandatory batting helmets).
My company bought maintenance contracts from these folks, and each time we had service the technician would try to suggestive sell other services. Whenever something needed repair, the tech would have to call into the office so someone else could discuss the repair work and give me a price (always exorbitant). The kicker: a rep from their office called to say that my "toner order" was ready and that a bill would be coming shortly. I am 100% sure I did not order any toner but the sales rep argued that I did. Long story short, I suspect that this company pulls this little stunt in the hopes that a large company won't know any better and will just pay the bill. Buyer beware.
After wrestling with numerous cell phone companies and their posh storefronts, I actually found Radio Shack to be a refreshing change. Their selection of phones was good, the service reps were knowledgable and friendly and best of all -- i didn't have to wait a thousand years for service. Verizon & Sprint are two of the providers you can choose from (there are others but i can't think of them now). Worth a look.
