When I started this shop, I loved the way the outside was decorated, and it was super clean. Upon entering, along with thinking that the place where the carts and baskets needed a good sweeping, I noticed the store was somewhat busy, but there was still plenty of room to move. All the odors in the store were in the right places. You couldn’t smell the fish from across the store (means REALLY fresh fish)...speaks highly of their product. This is a plus. I also noticed the lighting level was just right. It was not hard on the eyes. The whole place gave me a warm and homey feeling. I looked at the floors on each aisle, and while there was some litter, it was not an exorbitant amount.
The thing I DID notice was how polite and friendly associates were to the customers. They were all smiling and more than one approached ME to see if I needed anything. I asked an associate where the craft beers were located and instead of just pointing, he lead me to them. The same associate later asked if I needed anything else. The find of the trip was the IPA made by Westbrook. It was great to see that they had all of the beers Westbrook is currently brewing in Mount Pleasant. However, the Westbrook had to go in the freezer when I arrived home, as it wasn’t cold enough. The Bud Light packaging was damaged, but not dangerous. Although I didn’t purchase wine, the pricing would give Trader Joe’s two-buck-chuck run for their money. In fact, I was easily able to see specials on various products. There was also an appropriate selection of fermented dairy product. This is something you don’t see in other stores. Even though the amount of brands of kombucha could be higher, they had all the flavors of the brands (Kevita, as an example) that they do carry, more than I’ve ever seen.
There were some gaps in products on the shelves, but I saw more than one associate re-stocking while I shopped. The ice cream had the worst, but that is understandable(it's ice cream)The fabulous thing about this is that the stockers weren’t in anyone’s way. Nothing that the stockers did caused any type of inconvenience to the customers. The wait at the till was about 40 seconds with one person in front of me, just enough time for me to get my items on the belt. The cashier (Logan) was friendly and funny, and the little lady (also funny) bagging the groceries went and traded a tester I accidentally picked up for a fresh bottle. I would name more names, but the tags were hard to read, and I didn’t want to be obvious. After the sale, Logan asked if I needed any ice to keep my ice cream and frozen products from melting (awesome) and finished packing the groceries.
What impressed me was the amazing variety of products. Just the personal product section was amazing for the size of the store, although in the frozen food section, brands I was looking were either not there, or not easy to find. The whole experience was extremely pleasant, and I will definitely shop there again. My only other suggestion is more pet supplies for cats. I give them a 4, but if it was allowed, I’d give them a 4.7. Well done.
I love shopping in Forever 21. Recently they changed some of the logos onto XXI, which is 21 in roman numeral. Unfortunately, where I live, there aren’t any close stores around. The closest store is about 45 minutes away in a mall. Because of that, shopping at Forever 21 is very rare. Most of the stores are near the Denver area, and I live near to Colorado State University in Fort Collins. I am hoping and wishing that they open a store closer in my area instead of driving 45 minutes away to get to the nearest favorites store.
The shop I went to was in the mall of Flat Irons, Broomfield, Colorado. The address to this is, 51 W Flatiron Crossing Drive ANC04, Broomfield, CO 80021. When parking and first entering Forever 21, it was very clean inside and out. You can tell that they’ve kept it clean for all the customers. The layout of the inside was wide and big. They sorted the clothes out by style, and had a little section for men and for women that were a little bigger. They had a big sale the day I went in, the signs were clear, and the clearance was also shown above the racks. Most of the shelves and rails were full of clothes, almost too a point where it was a little difficult to take the clothes out and see them, and put them back.
I went around the afternoon during a weekday, so there weren’t as many workers, because it wasn’t as busy as it would be on a weekend. The lady that helped me with finding my clothes was so sweet, and friendly. She quickly took me to the section of dresses I asked for, and then told me to have a great day and if I needed anything else, she would be around the section.
After gathering all the clothes, I could find that interested me, I went my way to the dressing room to try on the clothes. There it was a little more unorganized with clothes that haven’t been put away with racks stuffed. One of the workers helped me into the dressing room and informed me of their policy of only having a max of 6 pieces of clothing in with you.. She then continued to tell me that I could put my extra clothes on a hook outside of the dressing room door, and whenever I was ready, I could bring the clothes in.
When finished shopping around the store and had an arm full of clothes, I made my way to the front desk. There was only one cashier available, but it wasn’t busy. She was very respectful and kind, made small talk, and let me know that all sales I picked out are final. It took only about 10 minutes, but she was fast. Overall, I would say that my experience was a very good. The quality of clothing I picked were cute and also very warm because it’s almost winter. The store I would rate is a 5 out of 5. Very clean, friendly staff, and they follow all policies and procedures. It was very refreshing.
Tonight we went to eat at Cracker Barrel located at 615 Ring Rd. Harrison, OH 45030. When we arrived they were not too busy so we were able to be seated immediately. The lady working the greeting desk was very attentive and friendly That is good when you have four kids with you. They gave all four kids coloring mats and kids’ menus. They also asked if we would like a booster seat for our two-year-old. We said yes. Their booster seats actually attach to their chairs and have buckles to keep them in, unlike all other restaurants I have been to. This was nice as my son likes to try to move around a lot.
Once we were seated the server made us aware of the special of the day which was a Turkey Dinner. She also took our drink orders and asked if we were ready to order or needed more time. We needed a little more time and the waitress gave us the perfect amount of time where we didn’t have to wait long before placing our order.
The waitress, who was named Tori, was very patient as the kids changed their minds or had trouble making their minds up of what to eat. She was very friendly and understanding. She made sure to let us know what came with what types of meals and what our options were. Once we placed our order we played the little game that is at every table. I like that they provide entertainment for everyone.
We waited about 15 minutes for our food to arrive at the table after placing our order. I ordered the chicken and dumplings with a salad and macaroni and cheese. My husband ordered the chicken and dumplings with mashed potatoes and hash brown casserole. Two of my kids ordered the grilled chicken tenders with macaroni and cheese, one ordered a hamburger (which they asked how we wanted the hamburger cooked never been anywhere that does that) with home style fries, and my last ordered grilled cheese with macaroni and cheese. All of the food was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. It was beyond our expectations. Our server made sure we had everything we needed.
My husband and I had sweet tea to drink and when we would need more she would bring a pitcher to fill our cups up. We never had to ask for more. As we emptied our plates the waitress made sure to get them off the table so that we wouldn’t have empty plates covering the table. We were so full from the amazing dinner that we sadly had no room for dessert. On a scale of 1 to 5 I would rate our experience a 5 and I would definitely recommend this business to a friend and to everyone. The atmosphere is great, the people are friendly and the food is simply amazing. They are family friendly and very accommodating. I and the kids also love that there is a store attached to the restaurant and loved looking around. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant.
