I went to Bay Cities after reading the reviews here. I was happily impressed. The sandwiches are great! My entire family loves them. If you like lots of toppings on your sandwich, ordering "the works" is delicious. It can get quite crowded at the counter so go early or fax in the order. On the weekends it can be a zoo, but they have a lot of people working behind the counter so it goes fast.
While waiting for my number to be called at the sandwich counter, I browsed the rest of the store. Wonderful selection of all kinds of Italian (and Greek) specialty foods. Too many to list here, but it's refreshing to see things that I haven't seen before in other specialty food stores.
By the way, don't forget to take home a fresh baked loaf of their bread. I end up eating half of it on the car ride home! The freshly baked bread is soft on the inside and crusty on the outside, and many times it's still warm. Just delicious. I don't think you'll be disappointed to come here.
PROS: Great sandwiches. Great variety. Interesting food specialty items.
CONS: Sometimes parking can be a problem. Wait at the counter can be long.
These groomers know what they're doing. I have a Westie and have been taking her to be groomed by TLC for many years. People are nice to deal with too. Theirs groomers know how to give a professional looking cut and their prices seem to be reasonable. Whenever I've tried another place, I'm always disappointed.
PROS: great dog haircuts; really get the dogs clean
CONS: Parking can be difficult.
Ametron is an unusual find. For high end parts or high end electronics, they have a great selection. If you're in need of the latest audio visual equipment to rent for a party or other function, Ametron has a great selection. If you need an unusual part for your stereo, radio, or tv, video equipment, telephone, or other electronic device this is the place. I come here when I can't find it at Best Buy or Circuit City.
They have a huge parts department. They've been in business for a long time and cater to a lot of the big movie/tv studios and professional musicians, but a regular consumer can find many things here as well.
PROS: exceptional selection of parts
CONS: sometimes you have to be patient to get help
