Payless Shoesource - February 12, 2007
7 out of 9 people found this review helpful. The staff of Payless Shoesource greets me almost every time that I have visited. I have been happy with the shoes I have purchased there. I would not recommend their high heeled shoes for long periods of time. Payless is a great option for families, they have a huge selection for everyone.

Uncle Ed's Oil Shoppe - February 12, 2007
6 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Uncle Ed's Oil Shoppe is speedy but expensive. They are into suggestive selling which can be annoying but I guess its how they make their money. If they make a suggestion, I would have it assessed by a mechanic that you trust first.

Third Coast Futons Furniture & Decor - February 12, 2007
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. Third Coast Futons Furniture & Decor has a great selection of futons that are suitable for almost every decorative taste out there. I recently purhcased a futon from them and love it. It's a futon that is actually reasonably comfortable. The bonus is that you can fold it up with one person.

0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. Fifth Third Bank has decent customer service but you have pay for it. My mom is a customer of Fifth Third and I have no idea why. Why should you have to pay to use the drive-thru? Or maybe I'm just too cheap, it just seems silly to me.

Food Dance Cafe - February 9, 2007
1 out of 1 people found this review helpful. Food Dance is an interesting place to eat. From the giant painted asparagus to the interesting food selections, there's no other place like food dance in the area. The prices can be a bit steep, but given that all the food is supposed to be fresh and organic, one can understand the price tag a little better. I personally wasn't a big fan. Perhaps I'm just addicted to my preservatives, or maybe I just can't get up the nerve to lay out 12 bucks for a burger. Either way, give it a shot and judge for yourself. Just don't set your expectations too high.
I recommend this place.

R T Truck & Auto - February 9, 2007
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. This is a good little place to have auto work done. The staff seems fairly knowlegeable and the prices are fair. It may be easily overlooked, but this is a hidden gem when it comes time to have your auto's serviced. They seem to keep a constant flow of business especially for a small operation, but their service is still relatively fast. Highly recommended.

Saturn Of Kalamazoo - February 9, 2007
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. Saturn of Portage seems like a relatively good place to purchase or repair automobiles. While I haven't dealt with their sales people, Saturn has a good reputation in that area. Their service team is very knowledgeable and friendly. You never get the feeling that you're being taken advantage of, which might just be worth the extra dollars you lay down when doing repairs through a dealership.

Meijer C-Store No 22 - February 9, 2007

The store is kept very clean compared to many of their other locations in the area. The staff is decent considering what they are paid.

Movie Stars - February 9, 2007
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. Movie Stars

Movie Stars is a great little video rental shop in Portage. The atmosphere is nice and laid back and the prices are reasonable. I've never had any negative experiences with their staff. The only thing that is lacking is the fact that their selection can seem a little sparse, but I'd gladly go to Movie Stars over some of the bigger chains. If you live in SE Portage, Movie Stars is hard to beat for convenience.

Lasalle Bank - Member ABN AMRO Group- Branch Offices - February 9, 2007
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. Lasalle Bank - Member ABN AMRO Group- Branch Offices

I wasn't terribly impressed with Lasalle. I had an account with another bank that was later bought out by Lasalle, who promptly imposed their new fees on me. That would be fine if they actually offered something more in return. My suggestion would be to go with Huntington. They don't have a lot of branches, but their customer service is unrivaled.

Huntington Bank - Banking - February 9, 2007

Their online banking is top notch but sometimes I need to do things in-person and I can't because of their hours. 8-5 Mon to Fri with no weekdend hours. I hope they change it someday.

Willow Lake Management - February 9, 2007
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. I lived in the Kenbrooke Condos last year which is owned by Willow Lake Management and was not pleased with the management. I had a crazy neighbor who beat his wife/girlfriend on a nightly basis or there was an extremely loud party on every night of the week. I called Willow Lake every day for a week until they finally did something. The end result was a smack on my neighbor's wrist.

Kalamazoo Institute of Arts - February 9, 2007

The permanent collection has a few nice pieces, it seems to be more traditional art but they have some fun stuff. As you are walking in, take not of the Chihuly hanging in the walkway. I would encourage anyone to visit at least once, its a great place to visit during the winter especially!

It is usually only when they are busy and its usually always something stupid. Like say forgetting to put a straw in the bag. It's not worth driving back for but frustrating when you have to eat on the go.

The pasta is usually not the greatest from sitting under heat lamps. I'd recommend Sbarros to anyone who is in the mood for pizza while shopping.

Fitzone for Women - December 11, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. Fit Zone offers a circuit training routine that targets overall fitness. The Nautilus Equipment is made specifically for the female body which is a bonus. I didn't think the trainers were very helpful at times. If I wanted to bring a friend, the gym charged $10 a visit. They also started reminding me to renew my membership six months before it expired. I will not be going back anytime soon.

Jock Shop - December 11, 2006

The customer service is always friendly and very knowledgable when I had questions.

Union Cabaret and Grille - December 11, 2006
1 out of 1 people found this review helpful. The food is great and so is the entertainment. I found the food to be worth price. The prices are probably little more than most college students would want to spend. It's a great place for the occasional splurge. The Union appeals to all generations. It is a nice, casual atmosphere to sit back and enjoy life.

Grapevine Furniture - December 11, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. If you are looking for fast cash and want to get rid of some furniture this is your place. Don't go with the expectation of receiving a good price but most likely that will not happen. If you are looking for furniture on a budget you can find some decent pieces. My friend found an awesome chair there for not too bad of a price. Be picky and try dickering to see if you can get a lower price.

We did not feel cramped at all--everyone had more than adequate living space. The room was extremely clean and the service was always great. It is located right next to 94 and the airport so it would seem like there be a fair amount of noise. I was pleasantly surprised that was not the case.

Central City Parking - December 10, 2006

Gull Road Cinema - December 10, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. Gull Road Cinema is a little out of the way for many in the area, but it makes up for its location by offering very competitive prices. In terms of tickets, they are certainly the most inexpensive place in town and will run you about half of what the bigger theaters would charge. It should be noted that we are not talking about second run films, Gull Road offers the latest releases (unless of course you're looking for an R rated feature, which they do not show). The theaters are a little small, and the sound quality not be as good as those in the megaplexes, but when you're paying half price for the ticket it still feels like you're getting a really good deal.

0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. A friend recommended me to a specific stylist at Vallar. She talked the entire tine to the other stylist and ignored me. The pricing is on the high side. So the customer service leaves much to be desired. As far as the quality of work, the dye job was good but not great.
I do not recommend this place.

Hodgson's Home Accents - December 8, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. This is a great plalce for unique home furnishings. The customer service can be questionable at times. Personally, I found them to be a little on the snobby side. So wear your Sunday best and maybe you can write a contradicting review. I did find a great stained glass lamp as gift and the recepient loved it.
I do not recommend this place.

Watson Leather Products - December 8, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. Mr. Watson is great for any saddle or bridle repair. He is one of the best leather craftsmen in the area. Call ahead because he no longer keeps regular store hours. Mr. Watson is extremely knowledgable and honest in terms of what he sells.
I recommend this place.

Party USA - December 8, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. The staff is friendly and helpful with ideas. Their pricing is usually fair--especially on helium balloons. The location can be kind of hard to navigate because its on Westnedge which can be quite busy.
I recommend this place.

Parade of Shoes - December 8, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. This used to be a great place to buy shoes. It was a great place to go and buy shoes for a night out. You could get a pair of tall leather boots for under $50.00. If you liked Parade of Shoes then try Payless Shoes--they are owned by the same company.
I recommend this place.

Papa Pete's - December 8, 2006
1 out of 1 people found this review helpful. Great place for a bachelorette or just a girls night out. On Fridays, they usually have a male review. Prepare for sweaty men to be gyrating on you. Come equipped with some ones. Some of the dancers are questionable as far as the hotness factor is concerned.
I recommend this place.

Landmark Farm - December 8, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. The trainer is a nationally recogonized trainer. He specializes in upper level horses mainly but will work with younger horses. Landmark is a great place for the serious rider with the financial resources. He is probably not the greatest person to train with if you have an unconventional horse.
I recommend this place.

L A Nails - December 8, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. The service is extremely fast and they do a great job. Their pricing is reasonable. They sanitize all their equipment so they are pretty clean. I would not recommend this place for removal of the acrylics. It hurts a lot. Remove your nails at home.
I recommend this place.

Centennial Wireless - December 8, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. The customer service is above averge but you pay for it. They would not let me update my plan to get a cheaper rate. I wasn't happy with my plan so I took my business elsewhere. The reps were helpful when I lost my phone (luckily it was insured)--I received my new phone quickly.
I do not recommend this place.

Lea's Hairstyling Studios - December 8, 2006
0 out of 0 people found this review helpful. The pricing is very reasonable. Stylists are usually friend and do a good job. They have a couple of people on staff that are great with nails. The nail techs don't do actual acrylics--they do extensions which look more natural.
I recommend this place.
