This place offers a nice deal. You can use their range for free with the purchase of a gun. You can only use that particular gun to on the range or else there is a fee. One thing that struck me as odd, was that I wanted to take a look at a pistol and I handed the employee my FOID card and he said that he didn't need to see it becuase they were on private property. Also, they have most of their shotguns and rifles out in the open for anyone to look at.
This is Rockford's other high-class florist/gift shop. They have a good floral selection and that is about 20% of the store. The rest consists of charm bracelets, handbags, candles, gift baskets, and body lotions. This is always a good place to start when I need to buy gifts for my wife.
We needed a queen mattress for our guest room and came across this place. Aside from mattresses, they also have a large selection of moderately priced furniture for every room of the house. However, we got a queen mattress set with for only $200! It was mismatched set, which just meant that the patterns on the mattresses weren't the same. Doesn't make much of a difference once you have a bed sheet on there. This was a very good find.
This is the ultimate mail order place to go for auto accessories. We had a 1973 VW Beetle and were able to get any type of molding, chrome or fitting that we needed. They stock virtually anything for vintage VW's as well as trailer hitches, truck accessories, bulbs, covers, anything you can think of. We pick up everything at the showroom to save ourselves shipping costs.
This is the place to go for any type of power equipment rentals. We have rented a posthole digger and space heater in the past. Sundays are free the last time we checked so if you rent on Saturday the equipment doesn't have to be there until Monday. They also have propane service. Also, they put up a happy birthday message on their sign for our nephew at no charge. It was real nice of them.
I had never seen a place like this before. It is a bakery, but they specialize in cookie arrangements. they have cookies on sticks shaped like flowers. They are all decorated real well, and from what I can tell, they are made fresh daily in the store. My wife likes to give those as high school graduation gifts.
I have moved out of Joliet some time ago, but on the rare occasion that I do, I take my car to get cleaned at Motor-Mat. It is a clothless, brush process that is gentle to the paint and then attendants hand-dry the car. They also include air freshener and vacuuming with the higher priced wash. It's a bit pricy but it is worth it. They do a great job.
A few years ago, I needed to get a new car. I knew that I wanted a Honda Civic and did all the on-line research that I could. I knew how much the dealer paid and what the offering price was. I walked in and told the salesman that I wanted the Red Civic EX and I am willing to pay this price. The salesman gave me a nod and say we can do that. There was no running back and forth playing sales manager games. Also, they offer free car washes on Saturday for any car they sell. This is nice, but the lines are sometimes long and not worth the time.
It took them four years to get the exhibit prepared but they finally got it done. It is a full restored skeleton that's somewhere around twenty feet tall. they really put alot of effort into this exhibit. This museum is in the middle of Rockford and seems a bit out of place amidst the industrial district. However, it is only $5 for adults and $4 for kids. It's a nice trip to the museum with out hopping a train to Chicago.
Those of you who don't like the stench of smoke when youre out, this is the place for you. This bowling alley has 42 lanes and electronic score keeping. A big factor is that they do not allow smoking on Sundays. Its good day to book a kids birthday party or bring the whole family for a couple of games.
