Plenty of aquatic life and accessories to choose from here. Lots and lots of fish tanks of different shapes and sizes. But the place is a little dark and a hint unwelcoming. A few exotic pets and all their accessories. Feeder fish and crickets. Animal services. Overall, not my favorite pet store in the Tri-Cities but they might have what you are looking for.
Great place to rent band or orchestra instruments. This is always where I came to have instruments repaired as well and service was usually prompt. Purchased plenty of music books and sheet music, reeds, pads, shining cloths, etc. here. You can get lessons here. The website also has a list of musicians available for gigs and also bands looking for members, etc. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
Thousands of new and used books for trade or purchase. Teachers can get a 20% discount if they are purchasing new books for use in their classroom. And they will special order too! Trade-ins will give you store credit. Store credit will let you "buy" a used book or will be up to only half the price of a new book.
Also, sells tickets for local entertainment events!
Everything Bernina that you could possibly ever hope or want for. Bernina sergers, sewing machines and embroidery machines and of course thread, notions, patterns and books. Since the store offers simple machines up to the neatest technology out there, they offer classes so whether you are a beginner or expert there is something for you. Buy your new machine and learn how to use it. Also have your machines repaired here too.
Janean is very friendly and I suggest finding her to answer any questions you might have.
This place has location going for it- it's right on the way out of West Richland so if you are going to the race track or out of town it's a quick stop on the way out. You can't get gas here anymore. But the offer a selection of sundries, fountain drinks, alcohol and a hot deli. Also lotto, ciggies, things like that. I would give it a C in the cleanliness category. The employees are nice but I wish the store would be cleaner...that really stops me from going in more often.
Carries just about any type of animal accessories and food that you could hope for. Especially good if you need bulk, or some sturdy, high quality dishes, tubs and pet houses. Also some sporting goods and agricultural supplies. Plenty of parking. We've had friendly service here, even help carrying and loading purchases.
Our favorite finds here are Playmobil and Thomas the Tank Engine~ wide selection. They generally have some nice displays set up so I can see if the toys hold the boys' interest for very long. What you might not already know about this store is that you can rent musical instruments here. And they also carry some antiques and collectibles (dolls!). Cute little shop carrying some sturdy, quality namebrand toys.
I have been here searching for the prom dresses and also my wedding dress. I didn't find it but they had some unique things unlike anywhere else in the Tri-Cities. Along with the formal dresses there were plenty of pageant gowns and accessories like veils, bowties, canes, tuxes/rentals. You can go in and rent a tux for the SAME DAY.
Our favorite feature of this business is open gym time for the kids. For just $4 per child/ $2 sibling, kids can have free range of the equipment. Parents still supervise. Normally this is Mondays 10am-11:30am in the summer and Mon/Fri otherwise. You don't need to register. I like to bring the kids in when the weather is bad.
They also let preschool classes come in, birthday parties, and of course rec and competitive classes but not even just for gymnastics but also cheerleading. Classes start from 18 mos. old.
I searched the Tri-Cities over for Gripe Water and finally found it here. I also was able to pick up some essential oils for aromatherapy. There were foods for people who have diets that eliminate certain things like sugars or fats. Wide selection of vegetarian foods. Also vitamins and supplements, hair & skin care products, and herbs. Friendly employees led me right to what I needed.
