John Amico School has been around for many years. I am a regulat client as they do accept outsiders to come in and get their hair done. The prices are way below regular salon places. Although you will have a student working on your hair, they are experienced and your hair will come out looking right.
Oriental Market specializes in foods from all asian cultures. I enjoy this market because I am able to find any food or spice I need for my asian cooking. This market is a necessity in the southwest suburbs as the asian population is growing. The items are reasonably prices and I have never had a problem locating anything that I need.
Beverly Records sells just what their name says... RECORDS. The place has stack upon stacks of vinyl 45s and albums. If you are a record collector, be prepared to spend a day there. The records are organized by letter, however you will need to go thru a bunch of records to find what you want. I am a big 70's Soul fiend. I have been able to locate all kinds of vinyl from one-time artist. The prices are reasonable. Make sure you play the records before you leave the store. Some of them may have scratches.
Elsewhere Comics is located in a little hole in the whole in Blue Island. You should always call ahead of time because they really do not have set hours. They have many comics on sale. If you have a problem finding a certain selection, the person there will be glad to assist you. They also have a wall of old school toys, such as Rock Em Sock Em. The prices are reasonable.
Sunrise Farms is an excellent place to go if you want to live a healthy lifestyle. They have an organic produce market. They also have a pharmacy. The pharmacist will assist you in finding natural herbs to heal whatever ailment you may have. Sunrise carries many grocery products ranging from chips to tofu products. I enjoy the bath and body section and use most of their products faithfully. Also, if you are thirsty, go to the back for a healthy smoothie!
Honey Child Spa does most of their services with, what else? HONEY! I had a pedicure there once and was not too thrilled with the finish quality. My feet were wrapped in honey for about 15 minutes to make them soft. They came out ok, however when I got home, my cat kept trying to lick and bite my feet. The salon also offers massages which are great. I do believe this place is pricey. You are paying for location and atomsphere if anything.
When my car got on a flat, I went straight to Discount Tires. I have heard many rave reviews regarding them and all of them were true. Discount Tires will find you the cheapest, best quality tire for your car. If you are not satisfied with the price, be sure to tell them as they will offer you a lower price. Once in, they will have your car ready for you in a quickie. They will also explain what they did so you have a clear understanding of the services provided.
I have been a client of Midwest Eye Care Center for 15 years. After having gone to 4 other doctors, these were the only doctors who were able to diagnose my eye problem. The doctors are friendly and make you feel relaxed. They have expanded the center since I have been there, making it larger and adding more doctors. The lower level of the facility is dedicated to eye surgery. Many patients, young and old, visit this eye care place.
I would not put a roach to stay in this nursing home. This place is very understaffed. They sometimes do not have enough CNAs to help with all the residents. Do not be surprised if you see a patient sitting in his or hers own waste for hours. There is a high turnover rate with the nursing staff. You may see one nurse one week, and then the next week she either quit or got fired. The doctor, Dr. James Joseph, is rude and thinks he knows everything. If he makes a mistake, he will make sure to blame someone else. The place also reeks of urine. I had my mother in this home and was very happy to take her out. She has improved 100% since she has left Plaza Terrace.
I have been with Northwest Insurance since I had my car, which is about 8 years. I really enjoy their reasonable rates. Whenever I had a problem, Janet Sumner's office staff was always able to assist me. The location has gotten better in recent years. Used to be filled with smoke, you could barely breath going in there. However, the place has straightened up it's act and employed more people to help with their growing list of clients.
