The owner of Widensky's is a really nice man - down to earth and friendly - and does not make you feel like a nobody if you don't come in carrying the right handbag. They have a fabulous selection of beautiful and elegant stylish clothing although their prices are quite high. For special occasions, I consider shopping here.
PROS: high end - friendly owner
IF you're looking for a restaurant with "location" this is great - but leaves everything else to be desired. The food is so-so and very exoensive, the service is slow and rude. If you are dressed up and driving a Mercedes the valet will treat you well - if you are in beach-wear and driving a moderately priced car, they will be rude to you. I found the clientele to be a sleezy singles crowd and the ambiance to be noisy and not relaxing at all. One of my first visits there, we had a roach crawling up the wall in our booth. Thanks, but no thanks.
CONS: lousy food, creepy crowd
King Tile came in anad totally restored the tile in my home not too long ago and WOW what a difference they made!! They arrived on time, their workers were all polite and friendly - from the girl who answered the phone to the men who came out and did the excellent job.
In a few years we plan to pull up some carpet and have tile layed in its place - we will definitely be calling King Tile again!
PROS: excellent service
Having had one bad experience at the fabric store next door, I headed over to Calico Corners. I had shopped at calico in the past but foind their prices to be a bit more than I could comfortable afford.
As always, the selection and service at Calico Corners is beyond excellence. They truly are worth the slightly higher prices.
PROS: quality - service - selection -- all grand!!
CONS: high priced - but worth it
I have been shopping at Boca Bargoons and the othe rlocal fabric stores for several years as I like to make my own windwo treatments. I have always been able to go in with the measurements of my windows, some swatches of complimentary fabrics and trims, and walk out with the amount and style of fabric that I need.
Last time I was in - the fabric choice was perfect but the salegirl mis-measures and I ended up with less fabric than I needed for one window. When I went back, they no longer had the fabric in stock...leaving me in quite a bind.
PROS: fabulous selection - reasonable prices
CONS: they make mistakes
A few years back I hated going to this store because it was filthy and smelled awful. They have finally reorganized it and cleaned it up. Seems they have hired friendlier and more helpful staff as well. Thank you Pet Supermarket!!
PROS: cleaner than before
CONS: used to be gross
I recently saved up and bought my husband an iPod for his birthday. I spent many months researching and stopping in to this Apple store to ask a zillion questions about which iPod suited him best and what acessories he might need. They never tried to "sell" me - or at least they never made me feel as though they were. When I finally made the purchase and hubby had some trouble learning the ins and outs of using his iPod, we went in to the store and they took the time to teach him how to work it and understand it. They even had kid computers with kid games loaded onto them to keep our children happy while he learned about his new toy.
PROS: Great place! Helpful and caring
I avoid going to convenience stores after dark because they are usually kinda dangerous and scary. This particular location is always clean and well-lit making me feel much better about dropping in after dark for a chocolate bar. They are always well-stocked with a nice selection of items and have friendly staff behind the counter.
PROS: Clean & well lit
I have used this location for mailing services on many occasions. What I appreciate about them is that they will help me find the least expensive way to ship an item and they are honest about telling me if I would be better off shipping it via USPS. The have created a faithful and loyal customer in me.
