Bloomingdale's is an upscale store along the lines of Nordstrom, Saks, or Macy's. That means it has very good merchandise at very high prices. I don't buy much from here, but I like to look around once in a while.
Lerner is a pretty good store. They usually update their look (clothing styles) every once in a while, so I know when I go there I might be able to get something different. Their prices are very good compared to some of the big name stores.
If you're a Lego fan or if your kids love to play with Legos, then you have to go to this store! It has all kinds of Lego sets and construction kits to choose from.
The Bedding Experts has a good selection of mattresses in a wide range of prices, from top of the line to cheap ones. The salespeople are very helpful and were able to answer lots of questions. I think shopping here for a mattress (where they specialize in bedding) would be better than shopping at a furniture store that carries a little bit of everything.
Galyan's has to be one of the biggest sporting goods stores I have ever been to. They have so many things in stock that I can't imagine not finding what I want. They have racks and racks of clothes, sports and exercise equipment, camping equipment, etc. This is quite a different experience from other sporting goods stores!
Brookstone is a store where you can find almost anything you need to spruce up your home or yard. They have everything from mattresses to exercise equipment to full-sized arcade games. They are a little expensive, but actually not too bad considering the things you can buy from there.
The Sharper Image is the coolest store around. They have neat items like massage chairs, laser pointers, life-sized Star Wars figures, and all kinds of executive toys. This is a great place to shop when you need to buy a gift for someone who has everything.
Spencer's is one of the most fun stores to shop at. They have lots of gag gifts, which are always amusing to look at. They also have blacklight posters, retro items, and other cool things.
This theater is one of the best in the area. I really like going here because they keep it clean, they have all the first-run hits playing at normal times.
Wickes is a good furniture store. They are much bigger than a lot of the other stores, so you can be sure to have a great selection to choose from. I have bought so many things from Wickes over the years that I can't even remember all of it. I have never had a bad experience there.
