The proceeds from the Nearly New Shop benefit the Junior League of Atlanta. The shop itself has so much to offer at extremely low prices; not to mention the fact that the money goes to a good cause. Sometimes you can even find designer clothes (Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Seven for All Mankind...) at bargain prices.
We recently had a new air conditioning unit installed in our condo and used Universal Heating and Cooling. The whole process was pretty complicated but Universal made it seem so easy. My main contact has been Steve (installation manager) and he has been so easy to work with. We had some problems with the unit leaking but all I had to do was make a phone call to let them know and they took care of everything. The fixed the problem, replaced the floors, and made sure we were satisfied throughout the whole thing. In my opinion, good customer service is so important and Universal definitely has that. I'm very glad we used them.
Since I've been in Atlanta, I have started using Carriage Cleaners for all of my dry cleaning needs. The location is convenient, the hours work well with my work schedule, and, for the most part, they can have everything ready for pick-up the same day as you drop it off.
My parents have used Premier Cleaners for a while now. I use them on occasion (them and Richardson Cleaners) and am always satisfied with their service. Their hours are more convenient and having a drive-thru definitely helps.
I have been using Richardson Dry Cleaning for several years. They recently changed management/owners, but the quality of service is just as good, and just as fast.
Layni Jae's has very unique gifts and gift baskets. Other than gift baskets, they carry Arbonne products, Vera Bradley, and specialty purses. They can make the most simple, ordinary item into a masterpiece. Great for showers, gifts, or just because.
Most Los Reyes Restaurants are very clean and not questionable. However, the Calhoun location is different. They continuously get low scores, the restaurant itself is not very clean, and the plates/cups/utensils sometimes have leftover food on them (I know, it's pretty gross). Of all the Mexican restaurants in Calhoun, I try to avoid Los Reyes.
With that being said, the Dalton, Cartersville and Kennesaw locations are always very clean.
El Pueblito has been around for many years and is a popular spot among locals. However, their health score can sometimes be questionable. The food is good but I always like to double check their score before eating.
Gourmet Day is a great place to meet friends and family for lunch. The food is great, the atmosphere is fun, and the service is fast. The best part of the entire meal is dessert! They have some of the best desserts!
I got the cutest dessert sets (plates with cups that fit on the plate) made from pink milk glass from the Treasure Trove. These sets are some of my favorite items in my kitchen. They have a lot of cute things here and a lot to choose from. I will definitely be a returning customer.
