I love shopping at this CVS. Not only are they open 24 hours, but they also have great sales each week, with lots of loss leaders and in-store promotions. The store is clean and spacious. Unfortunately, the customer service is not as superb. Sometimes the register is unmanned and I have to go to pharmacy to get assistance. I will keep shopping at this store, however, because their SALE prices are awesome.
PROS: Lots of loss leaders and in-store promotions with the CVS card.
CONS: Customer service is sometimes lacking.
This church sponsored store is only open three days a week (Tues, Thurs, Sat from 10 am to 3 pm) and ran by church volunteers and merchandise donations. All their profits go to support charitable causes. Their clothing prices are fantastic ($3 for a dress, $2 for jeans or shoes, $1 for a shirt or slacks)! I've found designer clothing (Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Gap, etc) for a mere pittance! They have clothing for the whole family as well as books, furniture, knick knacks, and household items. I highly recommend this store!
PROS: You can save a lot of money on expensive clothing and household needs.
CONS: Limited hours; limited parking; can get crowded inside because it's small.
This mall is over thirty years old. Although it's small, it does offer some of the basic stores without the hassle of fighting the crowds at major malls. You can find Foley's here as well as J.C. Penney's, Palais Royal, Ross Dress For Less, Bath and Body Works, Sam Goody, plus a few other national stores. They offer a small food court with Sbarro's, Picadilly Cafeteria, and seven other independent food vendors.
PROS: Lots of parking and less crowds than major malls in the area.
CONS: Less variety of stores than major malls (no book or toy stores).
Saturdays and Sundays this market is thriving with people who have permenant booths and those who have just rented a table for the weekend, trying to get rid of their extra stuff and trying to make a little cash (and probably don't want to be bothered with the hassle of a garage sale). You can find pretty much anything and everything there from antique furniture to plants. Parking costs $1. There are outdoor areas to the flea market, as well as covered booths, and a air conditioned section. Be prepared to stay all day as there are acres of bargains to cover. A great way to experience a Mexican market without having to travel too far!
PROS: Wide variety of merchandise and vendors who are always happy to haggle.
CONS: You have to walk the entire experience and in the summer it can be a killer
