It's not spring in Kingston until Shorty turns on his "Open" sign. All winter we drool, waiting for that one beautiful word...OPEN. Shorty's has awesome ice cream. Multitudes of flavors of ice cream, sherbet, sorbet, soft serve and more. Oh, the hot fudge! The toppings! The ice cream cakes and hand made ice cream sandwiches! They make real hand squeezed, old fashion Lime Rickey's to die for. The best part of all (besides staring into the display case trying to decide) is definitely Shorty's welcoming smile and fantastic personality. That goes for all his staff too! It is just a joy to walk into Shorty's, sidle up to the ice cream case and say "I'll have my usual"!! Shorty's could be the real reason why more ice cream is eaten in the Northeast than anywhere else in the world! Try it, you'll LOVE it!
I was looking for a particular line of furniture, and when I went to their web site, Beachler's was one of the listed stores. The particular line I was interested in (Hooker) does not publish their prices on-line, so I emailed Beachlers for a quote. I received a reply within the hour. The quote was outstanding. The owner of the store, Rob was the one who answered my email, and thus was started a great relationship and shopping experience. Initially I was only looking to buy one piece, but after "meeting" Rob and emailing back and forth, I ended up ordering three pieces. I can't say enough about Rob Beachler...this gentleman is NOT your "used car" type of salesman. He knows his product without consulting books and answered every question, no matter how trivial as if I were the Queen of England. My purchase went flawlessly, and my furniture soon arrived in Kingston, MA from Indiana in absolutely perfect condition. The delivery company that Beachler's uses is just great. They arrived on time and very quickly brought in all pieces, unpacked them, put together whatever needed it, polished it and placed it where I asked them to. They were extremely polite and professional. I can't think of one single piece of furniture I would even consider purchasing in the future without going to Beachler's on-line first. This is really an A-1 operation...I can't say enough about the price, quality and service afforded me by Rob Beachler and his company. Please check them out before you go anywhere else!
I moved to Kingston from Walpole in 1987. One of the first things I did was to poll new friends and neighbors about which was the best area vet. The unanimous choice was Kingston Animal Hospital. Over the next 22 years I have become a devoted client! They have taken care of all of my animals, from my golden retriever and beagle to my cats and ferrets (not all at the same time). Each and every visit has left me believing that my pet had received the best medical care in the world. If it was only a matter of medicine, that would be one thing. I have had animals lives literally saved by the good doctors at Kingston Animal Hospital. Not only do my animals get the very best of medical care, but I also receive superb treatment. No test is done without full explanation of why, no pricey procedure is performed without my complete understanding of the procedure and why it is needed. All of the staff, from Dr.'s Ray and Mark Russo and associates right down through technicians and office personnel are caring, informative and professional. Sometimes I wish I were one of my animals just so I could receive the level of care and caring that they do. I owe a lot to the staff at Kingston Animal Hospital and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who asked.
