This place is great. A local store that has always had a great reputation. They have consistanly offered helpful gardening advice. The employees are fantastically knowledgeable. Wondering around in their outdoor display area is truly peaceful. Descriptive signage is sure to help a beginning gardener or even as seasoned one. Their recommendations are always appreciated.
This is a really cool store located in the middle of downtown Amherst. It has been there for as long as I can remember. Great place to buy gifts for out of town guests. Lots of Amherst College appreal. Really neat collection of cards and stationary too.
Amherst Farmer's Supply has an interesting mix of products. They sell bird seed and dog food as well as grass seed, cement pavers and bricks. Their employees have been most helpful in helping us put together the right mix of grass seed for our new lawn. They also have quite a range of cement pavers and bricks. They carry a multitude of different styles and colors.
I have gotten my hair cut here on and off for the past several years. I cant say Ive ever received a great hair cut. A few years ago I asked for long layers and left in tears. I had choppy layers some so short I couldnt even put my hair in a ponytail.
They have locations in Amherst as well as Northampton. They offer a unique collection of jewelry. Most of it is fairly pricey but nice. You get can gift coins which are always well received. They also offer jewelry repair a service I have used several times. The Northampton store is larger than the one in Amherst.
Local dry cleaning service located in down town Amherst. I starting using Minuteman after a frustrating experience with a large national chain and havent been disappointed with the service yet. Their turn around time is fairly quick. I had my wedding dress cleaned hear and was quite satisfied. Dont think they accept credit cards.
I have to get nearly all of my pants hemmed so I have visited Julius many times. He is flexible when it comes to turn around time. He has a wood stove in the shop so you clothing sometimes smells of smoke especially during the colder months. His prices are fairly reasonable.
I have been getting my hair cut here since they opened. The majority of the time I am quite satisfied. I have highlights put in which turned out way too light and they were more than happy to fix it free of charge. They have recently added manicures to their list of services as well. I love the funky atmosphere. The interior color theme is cool.
Cowls is a very well established local hardware and lumber store. The carry top of the line paint and supplies as well. Their prices are as inexpensive as some of the large commercial stores but they do carry a wide selection of products. Their staff is very knowledgeable as well.
In my opinion this is the best gym in town. Of course its probably the most expensive as well. In addition to lots of weight and cardio machines they also have a pool, tennis courts, basketball, racquetball courts, and a variety of classes. What I really love is the fact that all of the cardio machines have individual televisions. You need to bring your own earphones but you can plug yourself in and choose any channel you wish to watch.
