This is a store that is for serious plumbers, or the person who just needs this one little part for the bathroom sink. I f you take in a part that you need replaced they will find it for you. If you only need a part off of a piece, they will sell you just the part you need and not make you buy the whole part. If you are a big time plumber you already know how great Brothers is so I don't need to tell you.
I live close to a Home Depot but will always try to use the Ace that is right around the corner. They usually have what you need and there is always someone to help you find what you need. Returns are easy and quick. Once you have been in a couple of times they will remember you and what you baught the last time you were in.
Lane Bryant is about the only clothes store I can shop at so I am pretty familiar with there company. The store manager for the Natomas store came from the Arden store and is very focused and presenting a clean and inviting store. The exchange policy is very shopper friendly.
PROS: Great sales and promotions
Did you know that Fresh Choice is on the list for AAA discounts? I did not till one day I was paying with my Debit card and the person ringing me up was looking at my ID(I know, amazing) and saw my AAA card and asked me if I wanted to use my discount. She would have used it for my friend but she had already paid. It is not very often that you have someone pointing out that you can use a discount, let alone offering you to use it for friends that are one a seperate ticket.
Last weekend I was on the search for Reef sandals in the mall. I figured I would try to see if there is any other flip flop that has the same support, so I tried Oakley. They have a flip flop that is not as comfortable but the good part was the sales representative that was tring to get me to try on the sandal even though I was not buying it. She was a fellow flip flop junkie and knew that there was no comparison to the Reef but still tried to get the sale for her company. She was not pushy but she was personable. Very talkitive but in a good way.
Fry's has the best prices in town, but sometimes you just can't find some one who can help you. If you are looking for a new computer and don't know what you want Michael is the best guy I have found at Fry's. He is very knowlagable in his department. He will not try to oversell you, but will try to find the best product in your price range.
On the other hand, hope you never have to return anything. If you do plan on an hour on weekends!
CONS: Return time is usually about an HOUR!
