I have shopped around for tire shops since moving to Norman, and I always end up back at Walmart. They are often busy, so you have to plan on waiting a while, and they don't always have great customer service, but when you buy your tires, you come with knowing that they offer their guarantee. They also have the best selection of tires ranging in all different prices. If you don't have a lot of money, you can still get a nice set of new tires and know they'll have the Walmart guarantee.
PROS: The guarantee
CONS: long wait time
Every time I go to Oklahoma City, I stop at Ron's Pawn Shop, just to see what I can find. They have something new all the time. I love their prices on movies and cds, and have bought a lot of jewelry and other items there. They do offer a guarantee on the items they sell, and they are really friendly. If you don't like the price, you can make them an offer. They let you know that you are appreciated as a customer.
PROS: New stuff all the time
Domino's Pizza is definitely a great solution for those Friday nights when you're just too tired to cook or go anywhere! They definitely keep their promises and deliver hot, fresh, delicious pizza in a timely matter every time. They are a bit higher in price than some of their competitiors, but their friendly staff and delivery drivers, plus the taste of their pizza makes it worth it.
PROS: Fast delivery, fresh every time
Adams Elementary School is absolutely the best place to send your kids in Norman! I have had three children attend there, two of them are still there, the other moved on to Jr. High. The programs they have are amazing! They have a lot of focus on music and other extracurricular activities, which the children love. And the teachers, I can't say enough about the teachers! Mrs. Jernigan is my absolute favorite, but there are many other wonderful teachers at Adams. No matter what grade your child is going into, you can rest assured that they will be, not only taught, but also loved and nurtured, at Adams.
PROS: The best teachers and awesome music program
I hired Sooner Carpet Cleaning to come out a few days before a huge event with my family that was to take place at my home. I was definitely not impressed. They did not arrive at the arranged time, and of course, it was on a day I was in a rush. They did not even call to say they would be late. The carpet cleaner who showed up did not look at all professional, I would describe him as "scroungy". And then to top it all off, the job that was done was no better than what I could have done with my home carpet cleaner. I don't know if they were having a bad day or what, but I definitely wouldn't recommend them.
Albertsons definitely has its ups and downs. I tend to shop there mainly for the sales, and fresh meat. They definitely have the best selection of fresh meat and produce, and fresh baked goods. They have everything you could possibly need in that store, including movie rentals and a bank. The downsides include long lines, not enough cashiers, and higher overall prices. That's why I recommend shopping their sales.
PROS: best selection of fresh meats, produce and baked goods
CONS: higher prices, long lines
I have always been a loyal 7/11 customer. They have the best fountain drinks and prices anywhere! Their employees are very helpful and friendly, and they have good prices on gas, snacks, anything you might need. They also have great sales every month.
PROS: Best fountain drinks
CONS: not always clean
I hate going to the dentist, but Dr. Bradley and his staff make it much more relaxing. They really take care of you, from the minute you walk in the door. Dr. Bradley and his nurses are so good at calming my nerves, and taking great care of my teeth. They give you the best advice on keeping your mouth healthy, and they don't charge horrible prices.
Carlas's Pampered Pets is, just that, a place to take your pets for that special pampering they deserve. They do washing and grooming, and have everything you would need for your pets. They always do such a great job, and they are so sweet and loving to your pets. My puppy loves to go to Carla's, and I love it too, she always looks and smells so wonderful by the time they are done, and you can tell she has enjoyed it.
If you want to redo your bedroom or bathroom, you can find everything you need at Bed & Bath fashion. They have anything you could imagine. They have very helpful employees. They'll help you with decorating ideas, and help you find things that fit with your style and personality.
PROS: good location, best selection
