Sally Beauty Supply is one of the better beauty supply stores around. They carry just about any brand you can think of...all the good brands. Its not one of the largest stores but I always find what I am looking for. This is a good store for the proffessional as well. Pricing is competitive.
Vitamin World is a store that carries all kinds of vitamins and nutrional supplements. They are definitely not the cheapest game in town nor are they the best Vitamin store around. The service is hit or miss but nothing to brag about. They are conveniently located in a shopping center. I prefer The Vitamin Shoppe.
At the Vitamin Shoppe you can find just about any vitamin, supplement, etc. that you are looking for. They also run alot of sales and I am frequently able to get stuff at half price. They keep track of your purchases and send you gift certificates in the mail when you reach a certain amount. Great store, I love shopping here.
f you are a contractor/builder or even just a do-it-yourselfer, then this is the bookstore for you. They specialize in books for home repair and construction. They also carry study guides for contractors license exams. This store is not the cheapest place in town to buy books and materials but they do carry stuff you probably wont find anywhere else.
Sandys Jewelers is probably not the biggest or the best jeweler in town. However, they are very helpful and I found them to be honest and trustworthy. The owner is usally onsite to help. They sell both premade jewelry and custom jewelry. They also buy back jewelry and do watch repair. Check them out.
We have tried this company a few different times and have not been real impressed with their service or the quality of their work. The pricing is quite high considering they do not do the best work. I probably would not use them again and I don't think I would recommend them either.
Balboa Car Wash does a really nice job washing your car. They are never real crowded, so you get in and out in pretty good time. They take their time and do a pretty thorough job. Pricing is pretty good.
The Duke of Bourbon has been in the Valley for many many years. This store carries a very large selection of wines from around the world. They are a bit like BevMo. They are also a full service liquor store. They have a helpful and friendly staff.
Continental Art Supplies has been in the Valley for many years. They are pretty much the best place in town to purchase art and drafting supplies. Staff is helpful and they carry a good selection. I guess that their prices are not the cheapest in town but they are reasonable. Located on a major street.. very easy to find.
I have had a few things framed at the Framestore over the years and they did a pretty nice job. The work is pretty fast and its guaranteed. They have many different styles of frames and matting to choose from. Prices vary but are about what you would expect to pay.
