My 20 year old son has curly hair that he hates. Until we found Hair Palladian, he was always trying to cut all the curls off because could not find a way to style his hair that would please him. The wonderful stylists at Hair Palladian have managed to tame those curly tresses and make this young man happy. He loves that the stylists take time to ask him how he likes to style his hair and always makes sure to trim his eye brows and brush off the stray hairs from his clothing. The only downside is that walk-in apppointments are usually not taken and because they are so busy, you have to make an appointment far in advance. However, Hair Palladian cuts are worth the wait!!
PROS: Great Cuts and Service
CONS: Walk in appointments are usually not possible
Gene and the gang at King Video make sure that your movie experience will be a memorable one. If you like old fashioned customer service, something sorely lacking at the big chains like Blockbuster or Hollywood, you should come here! They'll reserve a movie for you if they don't have it and they always have great prices on used movies and games. As well, they have an outdoor sale about 2-3 times a year where you can get great prices on used movies and video games. A gem of a place!
I grew up in Allen Park. This shoe store has been around for as long as I can remember. My son got his first set of shoes here and it is the go to place if you really want quality shoes. McNally's has name brands like Stride-Rite for the fashion conscious consumer! The staff will expertly fit you or your child with the right shoe at the right price. And if they don't have what you want--they can order it for you!! What more can you ask for in a shoe store!
Dollar stores are popping up left and right around the Detroit area, however, I have never found a better all-around dollar store than Dollar Depot. With an electronics section to die for and huge holiday/seasonal section, you can spend an hour just browsing around! The staff is always helpful and will try to point you in the right direction to find the thing you're looking for. I highly recommend their washcloths, towels and glassware section. They also have quite a selection of food and goodies. I never spend less than ten bucks in this place and am always happy with the quality!!
With gas prices literally going though the roof again this year, if you want really cheap gas--cheaper by almost 10 cents over any other station in the area--stop by here. This is a no frills type of gas station. This station only sells regular gas (at all pumps) at very, very cheap prices. The station doesn't have fancy windshield wipers for you to use or even a fancy cover to disquise a non-working pumps--grocery bags over the handles are the norm here! But if you really want to save on gas--this is the place to go!
PROS: Cheap, Cheap, Gas
CONS: Nothing fancy, sometimes a little too informal
The best florist in Allen Park, bar none! The staff in this store will make sure that you get exactly the type of flowers you want at extremely competitive prices. I got my prom flowers there (many, many years ago) and it is the place I sent my son to when it was time to order homecoming, prom and fomal dance flowers. The flowers are always beautifully arranged and are ready when you request them. Be sure to notice the pet cat who comes to see everyone who walks through the door!
Once you try this little market--its a given you'll be back. This place has the best selection of fresh meats, deli meats and cheeses in Allen Park. Go in on a Saturday and your senses will be bombarded with the smells of the deli meats and cheeses as soon as you enter the door. The friendly staff will slice your meats to order and will wrap your meats for home or the freezer. Check the local News Herald newspaper for the weekly specials.
A hypermart can't get much better than this. Food, clothing, housewares, hardware all under one roof and good prices to boot. This place is always clean and well-stocked. The staff is helpful and they always go the extra mile to make sure your visit is the best! This store is the "Go-To" place if you are looking for a one-stop-shop with the best prices on the biggest varieties of food. The bakery has melt in your mouth goodies and the deli and cheese selctions are the biggest around--almost like having a cheese monger experience in a grocery store!! Try it--you'll go back!!
The renovations are almost complete on this neighborhood grocery store and the verdict is in! The selection is better than ever and the prices can't be beat! If you are looking for fresh produce, this is place--fresh, beautiful meat--this is the place! Good prices and friendly staff, this is the place. If you don't get their weekly ads in the local paper, request a copy to be mailed directly to your house! This store wants your business and will go the extra mile to get it. Why shop at the chain stores when you have place like this sooo close and convenient!
PROS: New selections of fresh veggies every day!
It wouldn't be Christmas without the rich, creamy eggnog from Calder Dairy--to die for!! This dairy store, ice cream factory and ice cream stand is the place to get the freshest, most creamy dairy products you'll ever find. Stop by after lunch to get a huge scoop of ice cream in a cup or cone--your choice. Try the White House Cherry, Orange Pineapple or one of the seasonal flavors made on site! Or get a thick, rich chocolate milk or creamy shake--it's all good here!!
PROS: Ice cream made without preservatives
