Menard's has a good layout and great prices. There is staff in every department if you are having trouble finding something. I prefer this store to Home Depot anyday. I live in walking distance of Home Depot but I would go to Menards rather than go to Home Depot.
PROS: Clean, organized, friendly staff
I can always get affordable, good quality denim pants for my family: children to adult. They definitely make quality clothes. My favortie time is when they are having a clearance. I can practically clothe my whole family for a fraction of the cost else where.
CONS: Long lines (sometimes)
I took my car here for a well needed oil change. A few weeks later I was having some work done else where when it was brought to my attention that they had put a quart of oil too much in the vehicle. I had to have another oil change to get the levels right. I would never go back there.
CONS: Too Much Oil
The soups here all taste homemade as well as the fresh baked breads. I've eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The best time is before or after the lunch rush at 12:00. Otherwise, you may have a hard time finding seating for 4.
PROS: Fresh food
CONS: Crowded lunch hour
Where else can you get a clothing item dry cleaned for $1.99? It's not your mom and pop's dry cleaners but for efficiency, low prices and quality work who could complain.
Candlelight is where 20 years I ago my husband and I bought our wedding rings. I have bought several times from them all with 100% satisfaction. Small store, great selection and decent prices. Especially good for jewelry repair - new watch batteries, missing stones, broken chains.
PROS: Friendly staff, great selection, excellent repairs
My pets were patients here until my puppy under went the surgery to be fixed. What should have gone smoothly - did not. She was not coming out of the anesthesia and we were not informed of this at the time of my phone call to check up on her. We later learned one of the staff even took her home to care for her all night, which I appreciated. I didn't appreciate the near death experience or the lack of communication between the vet and I. I would not take my pet here for boarding or surgery of any kind.
Can find name brand items at below retail cost. You never know what you'll find and you can come back week after week to find something new here always. They sell anything from food to garden supplies.
PROS: Name Brands
CONS: Crowded on weekends and long lines at checkout
Came here for help with my aquarium where fish were dying. They were extremely knowledgable and got my tank up and running with no deaths since (2yrs). A bit on the expensive side but as they say "you get what you pay for."
Even though everything is a dollar, you can still find name brand stuff here. Great selection of name brand candy. In need of party supplies - try here!
