I went to Schuler's to replace my husband's wedding band that he had lost. I had my 10-month-old son with me as I looked at rings, and the staff helped me entertain him while I considered my options AND talked me into a less expensive ring than the one I was ready to buy! The jeweler considered our lifestyle and budget and recommended going with a more durable ring that was less expensive.
Needless to say, we're customers for life. My husband was so impressed with my experience that he went back to buy me a diamond pendant and earrings that I get compliments on all the time. Their products are gorgeous and the service is first-class.
I made a mistake and reviewed the wrong location. please delete this review. i am moving the content to the correct location.
thank you in advance
I started going to Citrus when it was still Laurence Triolo's because my sister was the shampoo girl and got me a discount. Well, she got me hooked. Even though I no longer get her discount, I'll still pay full price for the haircuts I get there. I have seen 3 different stylists there and have liked each one more than the last. I now go to Eileen. The first time I saw here, I let her cut 11 inches of my hair off! I felt that comfortable in her chair. It was without a doubt the best haircut I've ever had -- people who didn't know me would compliment me on my hair. I haven't been fortunate enough to take advantage of any other services there, but I look forward to doing so someday.
There is nothing spectacular about Methacton Mennonite -- the rooms could use a touch of new paint and carpet, the toys look like they may have come from my mother's attic -- but many of the teachers have been there for years. Their experience and level of comfort in dealing with preschoolers were reassuring for me when I sent my oldest there. He never complained about going to school and always had a good time while he was there. The lesson plans were occasionally a little questionable -- teaching 4-y-os the story of baby Moses and the little boys being killed in Egypt seems a bit much for the age -- but this seemed to be an isolated incident. For the most part, the lessons were age appropriate and light.
I switched to Dr. Neiberg's office when I moved to Conshohocken because my husband had seen a doctor whose practice Dr. N took over. His office should be shut down. I was left waiting for long periods of time, his "nurse" gave injections like she was throwing a javelin, and I ended up passing out when she tried to draw blood because she was rooting around so much with the needle. The doctor himself was rude and condescending, employing scare tactics and overreacting to every symptom.
Things may have improved in the 8 years since I left his office, but somehow I doubt it.
I went to Dr. DeGeorge when I was still knee deep in dental phobia. His calm manner was extremely helpful in getting me over my chair anxiety. He did good work, filled a few cavities with very little trauma for me. However, when my bill was late, his wife (also the office manager, I guess) was obnoxious. Her first attempts to contact me were on a Sunday evening at dinner time, and she was decidedly unfriendly. My dealings with her in getting the bill paid left enough of a negative impression for me that I decided not to go back.
I know my parents like Palermo's for the pizza, but I've been taken by their Mediterranean entrees. They have your traditional pizza place fare -- steaks, hoagies, fries, pizzas with typical toppings -- but then they also have babaganoush, hummus, stuffed grape leaves, and Greek salads. My favorite is the combo, which comes with something I had never had before -- Israeli salad. Chopped tomatoes, onion, and lettuce, drizzled with lemon juice and olive oil, it's a simple complement to the earthier flavors of the hummus and babaganoush. Parking is a little rough, and space is at a premium inside, but if you are getting it to go, navigating your way is worth it.
This is our go-to take out place when we order out at my parents'. Their pizza keeps my kids happy, my dad can get his low carb grilled chicken breast with steamed broccoli, and I can get my chicken souvlaki. Their tzatsiki sauce makes it so good. Their buffalo chicken cheese steak has ruined me for being able to eat it anywhere else -- they use chunks of chicken, no dry shredded meat in this sandwich. And the sauce is spicy and tangy, but not too vinegary. They are always busy, so don't expect much chit chat at the counter. But the food is worth it.
The only time we've ever used a plumber is when it's big and it's an emergency -- anything else my husband can take care of himself. The guys that have come out from Buggy's are always friendly, helpful, and quick. Their prices are competitive, but well worth it for the service. When you have your sewer line backing up into your bathroom, quick and effective is much more important than cheap!
We go out of our way to shop at Tail Waggers -- they are the only store that carries Back to Basics pet foods for our dogs and cat. My husband has become such a regular there that the owner carries the bag out to the car and takes my husband's credit card inside for him because he knows there is likely a sleeping child in the back seat! You just don't find that level of service anywhere any more.
