This seems to be a store that is competing against big chains like Abercrombie and Urban Outfitters. The clothes here are pretty hip and more expensive than other places. However, they have brand name jeans such as Seven for all Mankind and True Religion. All the stuff in the store is hip but it is pretty pricy if you are a college student. I like their products however.
After recieving a coupon for this place I decided to check it out. It turned out to be a pretty good visit. For around 10 bucks, my car ( friend's car) was washed pretty well and the wait wasn't bad at all. We sat down at the nearby donut shop and watched the two mean clean the car. They were careful about the paint it seemed so they didn't damage anything in the process. I would recommend it over a drive thru one anyday.
I've been her a several times because my friends like it for some reason and dragged me here. After looking at the menu, I ordered the chili dog since it was the cheapest thing i could find that I felt could fill me up. Then the bill came and I realized it was the worst 6 bucks I've spent in a while. It might be a little better looking than the ones at Petco but nothing beats eating a dog while watching a live game. The burgers are mediocre from my other experience. I just don't get the hype.
I believe that if game stop keeps up and franchises, they will beat out EB games. EB games doesn't have the selection and variety that can compare to that of Game Stop. They also don't have gaming tournaments or anything along that line. But one thing that I have heard was that they do pay their employees pretty well.
The thing about this 99 cent store and any 99 cent store is that there is no common ground on the items. You can find a bunch of misc. items sometimes cheaper than retail but they will be around a buck. not everything is really 99 cents or under. On a visit, I found lighters shaped as male sex organs and pornographic videos for around 3 bucks a pop. Make a quick stop when you are in Linda vista.
I've lived here for almost 15 years of life and it wasn't a bad start at all. I wouldn't really say the complex is close knit but with all the violence that occurs here and there, you become a more educated person in the way people act. As a kid, I've made many close friends in this community that are probably the best friends I've ever had. Since this is a low income community, the kids are pretty loyal to each other because this is all that they have. Not a bad place if you have no money.
I went here with my friend who wanted to buy something to smoke illegal substances with and it was a bad experience for me. The store has this weird odor to it and everything you look at has some kind of reference to marijuana. The Bongs(water pipes) did look pretty cool even though some of them cost over 300 dollars. I suggest that this store make a major make over and make the store look more classy. This way they can cater to more sophisticated druggies and not just plain ol' junkies.
There is something about the atmosphere of this store that turns me off. The owners and workers think they are better than everybody so you don't really feel welcomed unless you already know them. They have a pretty big selection if you want something that Asian inspired. They also do repairs for a minimal price which is cool.
Forget your Kentucky Fried Chicken. This is the place to go. Their chicken is spiced with their secret ingredients that compare to the Colonel's. They have a wide variety of sides to meet your soul food needs such as cole slaw to even the delectable collard greens. The pieces of chicken are a little smaller than that of KFC but they are tastier. But god knows what bird is that of KFC.
So I go to this dealership and see a sign that says that the car will cost me only 200 bucks a month with no interest. I go into the store and work out my paperwork to be later see that the payment has doubled. What the hell is that all about. The guy did offer me left overs from his lunch and a free soda. This is pretty good place if you want lunch and don't have any money.
