Elder Beerman's is a great hometown store that is regionally owned. I have always shopped at Beerman's and loved their merchandise and selection of clothes, sales, and personal service they give each customer when needed. The hairstylists offer the same great service. They will talk with you and offer suggestions on hairstyles. Their stylists do wonderful styling, cuts, perms, etc. I've always been happy with my stylist.
Ohio School Pictures are a trusted and reliable photographer of many public and private schools. They travel all over the state of Ohio and do work for Kindergarten on up. I can see why the schools trust them, we sure do. There have been other photographers involved with the schools previously and they saw the error of their ways. OSP does wonderful photos'. They take the time needed to get the right pose. They make sure the student looks 'prefect' and snap that wonderful photo. I'm quite sure I'm not the only satisfied parent!
Dr. Garner is an outstanding doctor! Our insurance allowed us to use the office there and all of my children used their office. Dr. Greenberg is one of the rare doctors who will take the time to sit and explain options to you and give you great words of advice on taking medications and exercise. He made my son listen. He's a cool doc who gives high fives and straight talk.
I attended Neighborhood Family Practice for years, until my doctor left the business and moved to the Cleveland Clinic. Neighborhood Family Practice is vital to the neighborhood it serves. There are so many without health insurance that they help. The doctors there are so compassionate and actually care to listen to your woes. The place is clean and well managed and actually the appointment times have a short wait for the most part.
Hastings Home Health Care is located close to Fairview Hospital on Lorain (which is being remodeled). Its really convenient to get to when you're being discharged from there. We've stopped in Hastings on more than one occasion with one or more of our children. They carry the traditional supplies like crutches, canes, first aid supplies and more. They can order in more special items like wheelchairs and more.
My parents use Dr. Kirkwood and only because they have used him for years. For the life of me, I can't figure out why. The doctors office won't fax in their prescriptions for mail order or postal mail them. My Dad can hardly drive anymore but Dr. Kirkwood makes them come up to the office to pick up their prescriptions. He makes them have appointments they don't need as well. I've been trying to get them to switch doctors but they don't like change. If you want a good doctor who will work with you, look elsewhere.
First Federal of Lakewood has been around northeast Ohio for 70 years. No business could survive that many years without having great customer service at the core of their business strategy. Their tellers are knowledgeable and very happy when you walk up to the counter. They are even willing to look for those elusive state quarter requests. They have comparable rates on their loans. We're happy with the bank. Since its a local bank, you get more specialized service.
Ohio State Plumbing is a company we've used once. That doesn't say anything about their company. We've used several plumbers over the years. Ohio State was called out because our sewer backed up in the basement. They arrived quickly and did what they could to fix the problem. We were happy with the outcome and their professional manner.
There are so many choices for daycare in the Dayton area, but Spin Kemp Christian Preschool is one I can personally vouch for. We had our 2 daughters in that school and we were always happy with the staff there. They had many well structured programs for the children and structured days as well. Our daughters were always cared for by the best and happy with the school.
We prefer to use Murrays Discount store as its closer but going the extra mile or two makes sense on many occasions. Federated carries a wide selection of items and always has the item in stock. I've yet to go and had to get rain check for an item. Good stock, great prices and friendly cashiers and staff.
