My wife and I love to shop for lingeries here because they have a good size selection here and the lingeries are always very sexy. They also have sales very often where you can get bras for as little as $9.99 and underwears for 5 for $10.00.
Ralphs is a pretty good supermarket and their items are usually well-stocked. The fruits are usually very clean and the staff pretty helpful. If you like fruits like I do, you should check their fruit section during the summer when they have great specials where you can get fresh fruits for a very reasonable price! Check out their sales every Wednesday!
Vons is a convenient supermarket and has a good selection of fruits, vegetables, and other household items. The prices are pretty good but the sale items they have every week is worth a visit. Vons is also known to be one of the very few supermarkets that inspects its fruits at least five times before they sell them so customers should rest assure that the fruits they're getting are good fruits!
This Old Navy store is an outlet store so the prices are even cheaper than the original ones. The prices were reasonable but the staff there were rude and unfriendly. I didn't purchase anything there because the clothes looked somewhat young for me but my wife bought two pairs of slacks for only $24.99 so I guess it was worth a visit for my wife.
This GAP store is pretty big because it's located on 3rd Streemt Promenade in Santa Monica. Although the store is big, the clothes there were not too great. The selection was only mediocre and the staff there were rude and unpleasant. When my wife asked them for a size that wasn't on the rack, the saleslady was rude and reluctant to help.
Odyssey is a hole in the wall great video store. The video store is a bit run-down but the prices are very reasonable. All their VHS are $0.99 and DVDs $2.99. Every Tuesday and Thursday they have a special where you rent two or more videos for $0.99 each video. Definitely worth a visit! The staff there are usually also pretty nice and helpful.
Blockbuster has a good array of movie selection but the rental prices are getting more and more expensive! I joined their online program where you can watch as many videos as you want for $20 but the downside is that they said they NEVER charge late fees. Anyway I was on vacation with my wife a few weeks ago and didn't return the videos until about 9 days later and they charged me a fee! I had to make several phone calls before they would take that fee out!
Big Lots is a great place to go to if you want to bargain shop. Unfortunately, their selection isn't as big as Target and Wal Mart and the Big Lots I went to on National Blvd. was rather untidy and unkept.
My wife went in there to purchase some cosmetics because it was gift time at a specific counter. The sales lady was pretty helpful and evaluated my wife's skin tones and products that would help her. The only problem was that the sales lady was rather pushy and bossy.
I went into Hallmarks a few weeks ago to get some cards for my wife. The staff were mediocre but the selection of cards was pretty good. I ended up getting my wife two cards as well as some small gifts to surprise her. My wife loved the cards because they were very meaningful so I guess I'll go back to Hallmark to get more cards in the future.
