This pet store is located inside the Brea Mall. They sell a wide variety of puppies and other pet products. What I like about this pet store is that they have open play pins so that customers can pet the dogs. Also, interested customers can request to see a dog in an enclosed room. Whenever I go this mall, I always make a stop here to check out the pups.
Edible arrangements is an edible twist to floristry. They operate like a florist shop and specialize in fruit gift baskets. This is a great alternative to fresh flowers. Each fruit basket is shaped and presented as if the fruits were actual flowers. When delivered, the fruit are fresh and ready to eat. There are also different types of fruit baskets that they offer, including chocolate dipped fruit.
This photo studio is popular among teenage to young adult girls. People go in here to either take individual or group pictures. For all pictures, there are various props that the customer can choose for a certain theme they are going for. This place is cheap for those who like to pass out wallet sized photos for their friends. High school age students can take their formal pictures here as a cheaper alternative than the photographers at the actual formal.
Party City is a great party supply store that is very reasonably priced. They sell everything you need for parties from decorations to balloons to party favors. The store is very large and sells decorations according to themes. Around Halloween time, they sell a wide variety of costumes at affordable prices.
This traffic school is hidden in a plaza with a very small parking lot. The fee is pretty cheap and just about everybody passes the test. It is Asian owned, but the instructors are fluent in English and makes sure students pass the test. The school is small with one instruction room. The class is all day, but with a short lunch break.
This community church is on Lomita Blvd. behind Costco. The building is fairly new, but does not look like a typical church structure. Sunday service is at 9am. Everyone is pretty welcoming and nice. This church caters towards Asian Americans, but ethnicities are welcome. There are two services- Chinese and English. On the weekdays, childcare and nursery is available.
This local pool hall is located on San Gabriel Blvd. They are open late night, but attract high school to college crowds. The prices are a little high. Late at night, it is packed and you probably would have to wait your turn. The quality of the cues and balls are mediocre.
Maw Chang Optical sells a large assortment of frames for glasses and sunglasses. They actually have a large room dedicated to that. They also offer the typical optical services such as examination. The prices are very affordable and accept most insurance. The optometrists are knowledgeable and fluent in Chinese. It?s located right off of South Atlantic Blvd. in an asian plaza.
This community dentist caters towards low income individuals and families. They accept all types of insurance and Medicare. All of the dentists are pretty knowledgeable and the prices are pretty reasonable. However, this is a general dentist, so orthodontic work can?t be done here. The dentists are fluent in Chinese and Spanish.
I often go to this fairplex to attend the Los Angeles County Fair, but they often use these fairgrounds for other events as well. The complex is very large and spacious. I find that it is easy to navigate around the area and easy to access to the freeway. The only hold back is that there is only one or two lanes to the freeway, so traffic might be backed up after an event.
