Like most pawn shops, Cash Converters is full of computers, TV's, jewelry and musical instruments. If you don't mind the customers blaring stereos at the highest bass settings, you might find a decent deal on what you're looking for. Of course, if you want to sell something here, you'll be paid a pittance for it.
Great shoes and apparel at low prices -- what could be better? Well, it can get crowded as kids buy new shoes for school in August and parking gets difficult, but beyond that, everything about Secret Sneaker is superb.
Whether you're looking for HTML guidebooks or the latest romance novels, Barnes and Noble is sure to have it. A cozy space for reading is provided, and the cafe is superb.
One of the few local music stores that specializes in drums, beat freaks should have no trouble finding what they need here. Kits, sticks, individual drums, even lessons -- Drums Etc. has it all.
Clean and attractive, Blue Ball National Bank is inviting even if you're simply depositing a check. The tellers are friendly and quick, and drive-through service is equally efficient. Useful services and features are offered for checking and savings accounts, giving BBNB an edge over its competitors.
PROS: Efficient Service
CONS: Like Many Banks, Closes Early
Save yourself a headache and avoid Wachovia. Reasonably simple procedures, like opening a checking account, can take an hour or more, where other banks can finish the process in twenty minutes. Even depositing a check can take a ridiculous amount of time. Don't bother.
All things considered, Blue Ball is a good place to bank. Fees are fairly low, and should you feel you need it, bouce protection is offered on checking accounts. Tellers are friendly and quick.
Businesspeople with money to burn should find furniture and office equipment at affordable rates, but if you're not looking for the best (and priciest) printers or chairs you're better off in Best Buy or Walmart.
PROS: Latest in Office Tech
Like its sister store in Ephrata, Leola's Sharp Shopper is a great budget food store. This one is much larger than Ephrata's, and offers more consistent stock at about the same prices. The store itself is somewhat dimly lit, but that's a minor detraction from an otherwise excellent store.
PROS: Low Prices, Good Consistency in Stock
CONS: Dimly Lit
This store's low prices come largely from scratch-and-dent items; a ding in a can saves 50% frequently. This store is one of the best for food shopping on a budget.
PROS: Very low prices
CONS: Selection not Consistent
