We have become well aquainted with the folks at Noble Barber Shop. It is a small place, and very friendly. They do a wonderful job, so my husband goes in regularly to have his hair cut, and now even my five year old son goes. The young one has always been terrified of barbers, but these guys completely put him at ease. And with their great prices, we can afford to have the whole family go in. Really great place!
PROS: great environment, very friendly
Sloan Bruce Tire Service was a lifesaver, when we recently got ready to leave for an important appointment and discovered my tire was flat. Just a few blocks from anywhere in Noble, they are very conveniently located. This was our first time using their services, so weren't really expecting much, but boy, did we get a fantastic surprise! We pulled up and explained what we needed, walked across the street to the pharmacy for five minutes or less, came back, and they were completely finished. There was a large screw in our tire, but they were able to fix it with no problem at all. We were very impressed with how fast and professional they were!
PROS: Great people, great prices, fast service
When my in-laws built their new home recently, they decided to include a security system to increase the value of the home. Unfortunately, they called Network Alarm Services. They were promised a state of the art system, which was not what they received. My husband was furious when he saw the work completed by the employees of Network Alarm Systems. They did a very sloppy job, with all the wires showing, just looking bad. To make it worse, they used a very cheap system, that we could have found at a much lower price elsewhere. We called the company to complain about the sloppy job, but they would not do anything to fix it. We will never use their services in the future!
CONS: bad customer service, sloppy work, inferior systems
My sister recently bought a home that was in need of a few repairs. On a recommendation from a friend, she called Sooner Home Builders. Since they are a locally owned and run company, she felt that she could trust them to stand behind their work, and they did. First, they completely rebuilt her wrap around porch. She was so pleased with their work, she asked them if they could build new cabinets in the kitchen. The work they did is breathtaking! They were always ontime, pleasant, and they cleaned up after themselves every day before they left, I haven't seen many construction companies that will go that extra mile like they did! Their prices were fantastic, and she did not have to wait long for them to get started. I will definitely hire them for any future remodeling projects, therefore I would highly recommend them to others.+
PROS: Beautiful work, great prices
As one can imagine, with our home team making it to the Nationals many times over, OU collectables are in high demand for the many fans in this area. Sure, you can find an OU tee shirt anywhere, but you won't find the quality items and the variety that they offer at Balfour. If you have an OU fan on your shopping list, and they have the tshirts, stickers and flags, you are still sure to surprise them with something unique from Balfour. Their prices are average, which is why I rated them a 4 instead of a 5, but they aren't grossly overpriced either. For the selection they offer and the fun environment, I think it's worth it to pay a couple extra dollars at Balfour of Norman.
PROS: Huge variety and overall fun shopping experience
If you have a big event of any kind coming up, Allisons Fun Incorporated can help! They specialize in planning the ultimate event, including supplies, entertainment, the whole package. The price is, obviously, more than you would spend doing it yourself, but if you're hosting a company party, planning your dream wedding, even a birthday party for someone special, Allisons will make sure that it is an event that will be a treasured memory. I, personally, love to have them plan big family events and birthday parties. If you're a really busy person, this really comes in handy. You don't have to worry about all those little details that end up being so important, because it is all taken care of for you.
You will need to call ahead to schedule big events. They stay pretty busy, and, of course, need time to be able to get everything done. But they are always very pleasant, and will definitely do everything they can to accomodate your needs. I can tell you from personal experience, they will NOT let you down!
PROS: All events, large or small
Homeowners, contractors, anyone can benefit from the services of A&A Rent-All & Sales Company. You can rent any kind of large equipment you may need to do home improvement jobs, fix your car, even pave your driveway! My in-laws were very pleasantly surprised at the great prices they were offered when renting equipment necessary to build their home. You can call to reserve the equipment, but they have plenty in stock, so it is unlikely that you would not find what you need. The guys that work there are extremely friendly and helpful, and can give you great advice on completing your projects and using the equipment correctly. They will even deliver heavy equipment to your home if necessary. So next time you need a heavy duty snake for your drain, or a high pressure paint sprayer, instead of spending tons of money to purchase something you won't use regularly, I would definitely recommend calling A&A!
PROS: convenient rental agreements, great prices
With my work, I am often in Oklahoma City, and have tons of print jobs that need to be done quickly and professionally. Reidprographics has saved me many, many times! They have all the services you would need, including designing graphics for you! I love them, because, with them not being a large chain, I have found they have more time for personal attention to every one of my jobs. They will make sure it's done right. They also charge less than the typical chain stores. Their shop is always clean, the employees professional, and most importantly, they have always done a fantastic job, and have always had it done on time!
PROS: Fast, friendly, professional, low prices
I hate it when I spend a lot of money on a fitness club membership and then they are only open limited hours, which make it difficult for people that work a lot. Boyer's Fitness Center has great hours, open during the day and evening. They have an awesome setup, with all the newest equipment available. You can tell that it is very well taken care of. One thing that's great about this place, as well, is that they are constantly cleaning the equipment. I think that is a very important factor to consider when choosing a fitness center. I think the best thing about Boyer's is their personalized trainers. They automatically assign one with your membership, you don't have to pay tons extra for individualized fitness plans. They will really work with you, and encourage you to stick with the plan that works best for you. They are also knowledgeable about injuries, and which routines would be safe for you, for example, with a back injury. I have found that very helpful.
The only thing they don't have that I would like to see offered is onsite babysitting.
PROS: Personalized trainers, great hours, clean, modern environment
I am very impressed with Integris Prohealth Physicians. They have doctors with different specialties. My pain doctor even drives in from out of town, so his patients in Norman don't have to drive long distances to see him. They have a very nice building, with a pharmacy located right inside. Their receptionists are very friendly and inviting. One thing I really like is the waiting area. They have magazines for adults and children to read, a television, and even a play area for young children. I really think it is wonderful when they include such areas, as it makes it so much easier and more pleasant for parents, such as myself, who have to bring their children along.
PROS: Variety of specialties, pharmacy located inside
