Erik's Bike Shop has always been very helpful and friendly when we have gone there for any type of bike repair or parts. They are able to provide quality advice on anything related to bikes, and are always willing to assist with any questions. We also find their products and services to be competitive in pricing and variety.
PROS: Great Customer Service
We purchased a used a bowflex machine after looking around at various places from 2nd Wind Exercise Equipment. The customer service was excellent, the staff thoroughly explained the mechanics of the machine and how to use it, and also how it compared with other similar machines. The sales person helping us also threw in a few extra bonus features, and overall, it was an excellent deal!
PROS: Great product at a good price
We decided to try Kokomo Tan before going on a vacation to the Caribbean. We were very impressed with the excellent customer service and the time the staff would spend going over the details about the different beds, and how long to tan in each one without burning. We also found the beds to be great, and we tanned quickly using them. We would highly recommend them!
PROS: Excellent customer service
The Dakota County Library provides quite an extensive collection of materials, including books, DVD's, CD's, and others, including Internet access. The library has many little nooks and crannies perfect for studying or reading, although it would be nice if they had more conference rooms available for library patrons to use. The customer service is also very good, and the librarians are quite helpful. I would highly recommend this local library to people of all ages.
PROS: Selection, atmosphere, layout
CONS: Lack of conference rooms
We were really unimpressed with the Underwater Adventures attraction at the Mall of America. It was rather expensive, yet did not seem to provide much variety or much to see in comparison with other aquariums. We also were expecting a tour guide rather than just listening to a recorded tour on headsets, which made the tour less personable. We did enjoy the hands-on piece of the exhibit, but will definitely not go back for a second time.
PROS: Hands-on Activities
CONS: Lack of Variety, Price
Chuck & Don's Petfood Outlet often has great sales on quality pet products, such as food, toys, etc. They have excellent customer service and are always willing to offer suggestions for a certain brand of food or toy most appropriate for particular animals. They don't have the most extensive selection, but often have items not carried in other stores.
PROS: Customer Service, Price
General Nanonsystems always provides excellent customer service, and are very quick to respond to emails. Their prices are very competitive for the Minneapolis area, both products and services. I would highly recommend them for any computer or laptop related issue, not only for their willingness to help (and not sell you any items you don't need) but also because their prices are rather inexpensive.
PROS: Superb customer service
The science museum is a fun place to visit, with lots to see and do. It can get very crowded which makes it challenging to view exhibits and do some of the hands-on activities, but that is the only negative. Other than that, I would highly recommend it. There is also a small cafe, shop, and the Omni theater located within the museum. The Omni theater alone is reason enough to visit, and often feature interesting shows. The science museum also offers various computer classes for adults, and the teachers there are excellent.
PROS: Lots to see and do
CONS: Can get crowded
