I recently had my son's birthday party at Jumpin' Jax and was delighted at how wonderful and clean their facility was and how helpful the employee assigned to our party turned out to be. I highly recommend them!
The Parent-Teacher store in Hoover has a tremendous amount of eductional supplies, manipulatives, posters, you name it. As a homeschooling parent I very much appreciate their helpful and friendly staff and love the fact that they laminate by the foot for a very reasonable price.
Little Professor is a gem of a bookstore nesteled in downtown Homewood. Stuffed to the gills with bestsellers and more uncommon reads, the shop itself is inviting and fun to explore. Come hungry and eat in their deli, or grab a cup of coffee and set off amongst the aisles in search of a good read. It's a great way to spend the day.
The local Costco store has been a lifesaver. They ahve excellent prices and a great selection of food and other items. Shopping is fast and convenient and the customer service is always excellent.
I wouldn't be able to make it through my week without at least one trip to 'the pig'. The Piggly Wiggly down the street has been consistently above-average in customer service, their shelves are always well-stocked with the basics and a few extras, and the store is ALWAYS clean and well-lit. They've been a great addition to the Bluff Park neighborhood!
I've been eating at New China for years and it remains my favorite local Chinese take-out restaurant. Their service is always fantastic, the food is excellent, and you get a lot of meal for your money, especially with the lunch specials. Try the General Tso's Chicken!
I've used Nall-Daniels Animal Hospital both for vet care and for boarding and their staff is caring, their offices are clean, and the experience was great for my dogs. I would and have reccomended them to friends.
I've been to The Day Spa several times and I have thoroughly enjoyed myself each time. Their massage, pedicure, manicure, hair and makeup services are absolutely top-notch. They really cater to the client and go out of their way to make sure that you're having a wonderful time. I've also had my hair cut and colored there and it's one of the best styles I've ever had.
