Mayfield High School has a great selection of clubs to join. It has a very competitive football program that has won many titles and vies yearly against top rivals: Graves county and Paducah Tilghman. Its theme is the Cardinal, thus Mayfield Cardinals. They have many other sports available: tennis, basketball, soccer, etc. They have a great drama department and a stage, but in need of a curtain for it. Some activities fall short, whereas others have major funding. Therin lies the fault of this system.
PROS: Very Good Sports
CONS: Other areas of school need funds
Kevil Korner Thrift Store works in conjuction with JU Kevil of Graves county to help aide handicapped people. It takes donations and resells them, thus employing handicapped and recycling goods that might otherwise end up in the city dump. This is a competitive store - its competition is the 1 yr old Goodwill Store on the same hwy and other resale stores nearby. You can find many older items here. Whatever is donated is what is sold here. They also have jar candles that are made by the handicapped.
PROS: Reasonable price used items, turn over selection
CONS: you might not find exactly what you need, unless someone donates it
This is one of the nicest eateries. It is in a rather older building such as an old fast food building, but don't let that throw you off. You can have good home cooking here or fast food. Milk shakes are wonderful in the strofoam cups. BBQ is plentiful here. Side dishes are bountiful, okra, corn, all the things you might find at a buffet.
I trully enjoy this little eatery. How do they profit on these bbq plates.. they gave me enough bbq to make 4 big sandwiches.. mmmm
PROS: Great food at a Great Price
CONS: need more bbq sauce with meal -ask next time..
Used cars. These are apparently traded in vehicles from their other lot. They hire out help to restore dents and dings.
Nice and newer ones and some older models.. A selection that is constantly changing, depending on what they get in to sell. As with any used car, buyer beware.. they must be carefully looked at and know what you are getting. I can't say I'm for or against this business with that being said.
PROS: Used cars
CONS: Used cars
Bear Hugs Daycare is under investigation as of September 2005 when a parent stated the child started crying when the parent was ready to take it home.. when the child got home its jaw swelled up. They took the video survelience of the establishment to the sherriffs department where they were shocked to see small children 18 months of age being jerked by arms and threw into tables.. babies being woke up by being hit with broomstick handles and once awake hit in the face with the dust pan..
Such harsh and deviant behavior for people that we entrust infants and children to. Stay away from these warped caregivers is my opinion.
If your child has been at this place, please contact your local sheriff. This is being aired on the WPSD television station as of Sept. 2005 the source of this review.
CONS: Mistreats infants and children as of Sept 2005 on video at Sheriff's Office
This is a used car lot, that being said- each car is individual.
Now Larry himself is a nice man. He does his best to explain in detail what you are filling out, where it goes to the court house to get titles, insurance, etc. He works with you to make a monthly payment plan that you only have to come in and pay him. No need to involve banks, he finances.
He acquires most of his cars from auctions, so he has his people repair the "faults" of these vehicles that are obvious, but there is always a chance of underlying issues that were not discovered.. as with any used car.
PROS: Finances in house, good payment plan
CONS: used cars you have to look at what you are buying carefully
Stones Drug Store in Mayfield, KY is a very established business. Most residents have pre-existing prescriptions that they just phone in and have delivered free of charge. This helps alot of shut ins that need a way of getting their meds.
Very good prices on prescription drugs. I can honestly say that I have witnessed a prescription filled at this place and it was much cheaper than wal mart... that was amazing. No wonder they have a packed parking lot all day long.. great prices..
As far as the lay out of the rest of the store.. your typical overpriced items. Trinkets, cards, and candy that they mark up to more than likely pay for their overhead to carry the items and pay the electric bill.
PROS: Fast Service, Home Delivery, Great prescription prices.
CONS: High priced knick knacks on open area of store.
Waggoner & Sons Auto Parts is a very well respected business in Mayfield. Inside is alot of helpful men. They allow you to run an open account if they know who you are or you are an established business. They sell auto paints for body repair, parts, chemicals, etc.
They sell the other various things an auto store would sell, yet I find it cheaper to run to Wal Mart for these items where the price is almost slashed in half.
This is a great store if you are needing the auto body items that you can't get at wal mart. Other than that go elsewhere for value on your dollars.
PROS: Great selection of auto paint colors
CONS: Pricey on auto "trinkets" air fresheners, cleaners, etc..
This is basically a hardware store. You will find trash cans, light bulbs.. I say this because with my change of address kit from the post office, that is what brought me to find this place. They had a coupon to get free trash can and light bulbs.. how sweet of a "welcome kit".
I have since went back and found items such as my hook up hoses for my washing machine.. cheaper than wal mart.
You can have your propane tanks refilled here. I enjoy the atmosphere. Alot of friendly and willing to help people here.
They have not lost the sense of the customer comes first.
PROS: Great Prices, Friendly and Helpful Staff
