Pets Naturally lives up to its name. It's a small shop, but the staff really knows their stuff. Prices are a little high, but you're getting quality. They're so friendly and welcoming - my dogs love going in and always get a cookie.
Foreign and Domestic since 1950, Kenny knows his stuff. Especially when it comes to the automotive world of DAEWOO. If you have a DAEWOO, you need to meet Kenny. He will be your savior. Kenny is the DAEWOO GUROO.
This place can be deceiving. They seem like they're going to have great deals, but they really don't. You need to know prices before you go in - sometimes they have some good sales, other times, it' tricky. Be prepared. Or just go to Trader joes.
Lucky Strike is very cool - a bowling alley with a hollywood flair. It's pretty fancy and also pretty expensive, but the fancy lanes make it an experience that's worth it - espeically if you have visitors in town.
Matthews Griffith Music really know their music. They provided top notch professionalism matched with a superb sense of humor. Go to them for music for telvision, film and more.
The Film Music Society is a big disappointment. They say one thing and do another. They tote themselves as a useful network but in my opinion, they're a scam. Check out the Society of Composers and Lyricists instead.
Soundabout Music in Van Nuys is a great boutique shop with an incerdibly helpful staff and an amazing selection of today's most cool gear. Individual service is right on.
Professional Drum Shop has great, hard to find instruments. Stop in and get yourself a sweet set of skins. African, Asian, American - they have it all.
The Singing Store in Lake Balboa is the answer to all of your singing needs. A wonderful, friendly staff is always ready to help and they will specially order anything that they don't carry.
Kaye's Music Shop provides lessons, guitars, keyboards, amplifiers, and accessories for everything from the beginner to pro. Plenty of parking and a nice staff.
