I had the pleasure to visit the forever 21 store at skyview mall in queens, New York . The store is one floor and small . They carry clothes for guys and girls and young girls. As soon as I came in one of the associates came up to me offering a shopping bag. I asked a staff member for help about my gift card amount and very kindly she told me to go to the cashier. When I went to the cashier to ask the girl was very nice she took her time and was smiling.
The store was clean, I actually made a mess due to my baby dropping and spilling his cereal and I got one of the associates to help me out and clean. She was nice, I asked her for a broom and we picked up the mess and she was nice. She didn’t have an attitude for the mess. I asked for pijamas because I only saw one small rack and she showed me more racks and big rack was on its way of new merchandise .
The store has two entrances, one is on the side and you there you have men clothes to the left and girls to the right. The main entrance you come across a big jewelry, bag and shoe section. They have plenty of variety for jewelry and make up supplies. A quarter of the floor in the middle you can find shoes and bags. The store had a sale and there was a big red poster with a sale sign and small posters around the store showing the discount and bargains. They had a buy one and 50% for the skirts. They were no gaps in the rails . The store had a small section for long skirts and the rack was full of clothes to choose from and they carry don’t deferent colors and style. They had many summer prints available.
I shopped for about 30 minutes and when I went to pay no one was in front of me and the same girl that help me before was there to help me. She took her time about 3 minutes . She went over my items and since I got two undergarments and jewelry she explain me how that’s final sell. She packed everything nice and told me how I have still 27 cents in my gift card. I bought eight things and they feel and look like good quality items . I bought a beautiful floral skirt that looks very chic and the material and color are gorgeous.
My experience was great I found beautiful things and things that I was looking for . I had the pleasure to find good associates that help enhance my experience. Also the fact that I did not had to wait on line to check out. I would definitely go back to this store , because even though it is small they have a good stock on merchandise and a lot of beautiful and trendy things to shop for. Thank you US mystery shopper for this opportunity .
I only went to the Cheesecake factory only once before and it was a pretty good experience. In fact in was over 10 years when I first went. Now that I am going again and this time I am taking my wife and my newborn. I went to the closest one to my house. The restaurant is located in Bella Terra of Huntington Beach near several shopping centers and near a Barnes and Noble. Outside it seemed already big, but when I went inside, it was much bigger and very spacious. The interior was really nice and plenty of room for incoming traffic. The hostess did not greet us when until we came in and asked to be seated. It was really packed even for a weekday/weekend. It was Friday night so I kind of Understand. Even though it was packed, it was a total of 15 minute wait for us.
While we were waiting we took a glance at the menu and saw picture of foods on the hanging TVs. While we were looking over the menu, I guess it was easier to look at picture of the food on the TV. The atmosphere was great. It was really dim lighting, something like to 1980’s style. The style was kind of like a bar almost except it was restaurant. To the right of us was the huge bakery with neon signage behind it. Seemingly hundreds of appetizing cheesecakes lined the cooler. To be honest this place was not as fancy as I thought it was. The layout seemed really crowded and there was absolutely no space for walking. The hostess then took us to the table, but she told us to leave the stroller behind and just carried the baby seat. I was right on, it was too crowded, but still we followed “orders.” The waitress that had seated us was named Hailey, my wife orders a diet coke and I got myself a glass of water. The menu was really tremendous but luckily I saw the pictures of the food prior to seeing the menu. My wife got the “Seared Tuna Tataki Salad” and I got myself Hibachi Steak. There was complimentary bread which was great appetizers and when I asked Hailey for more, she seemed annoyed and came back and dropped it hard on the table. I was not impressed by that attitude.
The Seared Tuna was smaller than it was portrayed in the pictures and the hibachi steak came out less portioned also. There was a total of 6 pieces on each plate. We were a little disappointed. However, the Tuna was good, and it just melts in my mouth. The steak was average. It perfectly cooked, but the thing that was not pleasant was the fact that my meal contained a piece of aluminum. I was surprised because that came from a cleaning utensil. I immediately lost my appetite. I called the waitress Hailey and showed them a piece of metal that was in my meal, she told me she was going to inform her manager. About 10 minutes later, a really nice lady who happens to be the manager herself, Holly, came out and apologized to us. She took back the food away and going to get us a brand new plate of the same order. We waited about 20 minutes for the new food to arrive. I was already full and had lost my appetite, so I decided to get it to-go. We decided to get dessert, and we shared a tiramisu cheesecake. It was really delicious but we couldn’t finish it. We decided to get the check, and surprisingly that my Hibachi Steak was free. So we ended up paying only for the Tuna Salad and Tiramisu cheesecake. We were kind of content and left with a happy face.
Shell, 101 US-41, Venice, Florida 34285
The station looks small as you drive up, and is only accessible if you are traveling in the northbound lanes of Highway 41, or if you make a left turn from the southbound turning lane, you notice three rows of pumps each has four filling stations for a total of twelve; each row of pumps has a reservoir of windshield washing fluid a brush/squeegee, and a paper towel dispenser, the brushes, squeegees all seem to be worn but still working well, the is an ample amount of towel in each dispenser, and the washing reservoir all have what appears to be a windshield washing combination including water and something that makes the water green; there are four cars at various pumps, off to the right there is a coin-operated air station it is in good working condition,and to the left there is a modern-looking car wash. Gazing around the lot there is a slight amount of litter here and there, the outside cans seem to have been emptied recently, and are mostly one- quarter full, the pumps and surrounding areas have an assortment of shell specific advertising, that are abundant but not crowded or overused. Upon entering the store/cashiers area,there are no overwhelming odors besides what people coming in and out smell like, The small inner grocery stop has a good variety of items ranging from drinks(hot and cold and alcoholic beverages, snacks, candies;and a small but comprehensive assortment of automotive products including but not limited to transmission fluids, three different grades of motor oil,steering fluid, brake fluid, some additives and quick-fix products and a small selection of air fresheners,cleaners and waxes for body, trim, windshield, and interior. There is only one cashier/cash register. There are two people in line in front of me but the cashier quickly and efficiently helps them clear quickly. The cashier is a woman, well dressed and taken care of, she is pleasant, I do not detect and perfumes or odors emanating from her, She makes eye contact and smiles, greeting me; she continues by making a few comments regarding the cold snap we are experiencing here in Florida. I then I asked to purchase a gas card, she asked if I was in a hurry or if the person behind me could go first, I explained that I was not in a particular hurry and that would be fine; she then very quickly handled the other customer, and apologized for the short wait. she the prepared the gas card and verified the amount, commenting on the amount asking if it was going to be a Christmas gift, I told it was a way to budget my gas spending; which took in a whole four minutes as she readied the card and verified the amount before taking payment and counting the money twice, she gave me the card a receipt and a warm :Thank-you have a great day,try to stay warm ,we chuckled. The visit overall was uneventful, the customers stood out most as they were friendly with greeting looks and smiles.
I would rate the overall excursion a high 5 because before I left I asked if I may use the restroom, she handed me the key, the restrooms were not very clean and there were a few pieces of discarded toilet paper on the floor, there was a small half-full trash bin, but both the toilet paper dispenser, soap dispenser, the hand towel dryer were nearly full and the sink had hot and cold water and appeared to be clean.
