This is the best Christian bookstore in town. It carries a large supply of books and Bibles. It also has an entire childrens section, with bibles, books, games and movies. They carry different type of “gift” things such as picture frames, necklaces, bookmarks, and such. A family runs it, so they are very friendly and kind. I love the atmosphere in there.
Red Rock books sells new and used books. The store is very large and they have a great variety. They can also special order and book for you. They sell childrens paperbacks very cheap. It’s pretty much the only bookstore in town, besides the Christian bookstore. I like it because it always has what I am looking for.
Modern Trophy sells personalized trophies, nameplates and other items. They also print things on shirts or other clothing. They are cheap too. For example, a nameplate with your name engraved only costs $10. They are really quick and usually get orders done within 2 days; or for large orders within 2 weeks.
Todd’s sells military items and hunting items. There prices are really good and you can find just about everything you could be needing there. They also sell Levis jeans. They have all kinds of jackets as well. They sell knives and other military type items. The owner is really nice. The only problem I have is they are not open all the time.
I really love this place. They have all kind of antiques. We bought a gun cabinet , which was in perfect condition for about half the cost it would have cost us somewhere else. There is something for everyone here. They have tons of antique Coca Cola products, which are a reasonable price. They have clothing, furniture, jewelry, and everything in between.
Ridgecrest transit service is horrible in my opinion. They are constantly late. Many times they have been 45 minutes late, and if you are supposed to be somewhere at a specific time it can be quite an inconvenience. The drivers are very rude. They also drive terribly. They drive too fast, and don’t brake when they are supposed to. They also book up really fast, but you can only make reservations 2 days in advance, and they fill up at 6 am every morning for 2 days later. So, often times you cant even get a busride.
Gentry provides air conditioning service, as well as air duct cleaning, heater, wood and pellet stoves, sheet metal, downspout and gutter, and much more. They also have emergency service available, which is very nice since most companies do not offer that. And here in Ridgecrest, if your master cool goes out in summer emergency service is often needed.
Mediacom is a cable service company. Their service is relatively cheap. I have not had many problems with them. Some cable has many times when the guide doesn’t work or channels do not come in, but I have not had this problem with mediacom. Their staff is also very friendly.
The pregnancy care center is for pregnant women who are seeking help and support. They provide pregnancy tests free of charge and they also have a sonogram machine. It is run by volunteers, however, a doctor oversees everything. They provide support groups and parenting classes. They have a program called Bridges, for pregnant moms.
The car wash is a do it yourself type deal. It is convenient to where we live, however can get very expensive. They do have the vacuums there, which I like because not every car wash place has them. You can also go through the automatic car wash if you don’t want to do it yourself.
