Dollar General has a lot to offer. I really like to go to pick up things but this dollar general is not very well kept up. It's nasty to me and very junky. The clerks there are not very nice or helpful. I recommend if you want to go to a Dollar General visit one of the newer ones in town.
Belk is ok. They have some really nice things and they offer a lot of name brands that you can't get anywhere else in town. They are located inside the mall which is a problem. I dont' really like the women in the cosmetics dept. they are very pushy and almost rude at times. I still shop there on occasions but I prefer to go to the Belk in another town.
JcPenney has a lot to offer, they have great clothes, shoes, and even have a salon. The employees are very nice and helpful and they have really good buys at times. My only problem is the location, it's inside the mall which really isn't a mall anymore. If they were to move to a better location I would probably go a l ot more.
Wildwood has some very nice plants and flowers. The prices are reasonable and the sales people are friendly, but I have to tell you they have the strangest commercials you will ever hear on the Radio. I recommend everyone who visits Wildwood to urge the people there to stop making those crazy ads, because I hear them so much I refuse to go back there.
I have always been completely happy with the services I have gotten from Kim at Farm Bureau. She is a super nice insurance agent who will go out of her way to help you and get you the answers you need. I recommend Farm Bureau to anyone in the need for any kind of insurance. They offer home, health, auto life, dental and just about any kind of insurance you could need. They have a great staff all together
The agents at Farm Bureau in Emporia are really pushy. As soon as you have a child that start pushing life insurance on you for your kid. I have been a Farm Bureau customer for years and this is the only place I ever flet pressured to get something I didn't want. I would really recommend you go in there with a set mind so that no one can push you into something you didn't want.
C&Ws offers a lot of very nice things. The people there are really nice and helpful. You can go in pick what you want and they will fix you up a basket or whatever you need. They have very beautiful flowers and gifts. The do deliver also. keep them in mind when you are looking for the next gift for someone.
HCC's child care center is a 5 star day care that accepts kids from ages 2-5. It's not just for the students at the college it is for the community as well. The teachers are all very nice and well trained.
I wasn't a student when my child attended but it's the only one in town that I know of that accepts part time kids.
The prices are high and they seem to go up every 6-12 months. They have a great menu for the kids to eat from. My only complaint is the waiting list.. It's terrible like 6 months to 2 years. If you have a kid and want it to go when it's 2 call now to get them on the list...
Blue Flame owns several gas stations in town and I have always been happy with the service I have gotten. It's the best convience stores in town hands down.. I try to only get my gas from them because I trust that it's what I am paying for unlike other places where you question what your car is running on.
White's is a very good place to go when you are looking to buy a car or get service work done. The people there take their jobs serious and seem to go the extra mile to help you out. Highly recommended in the area.
