Re: “The Liberal Store

I really like this story, and have followed in through several locations. They are now on North Academy north of Union Blvd ( 5744 n Academy) between a church and a liquor store. Best to shop online first, then visit the store. Otherwise there is just TOOO much to see it all..

Re: “Sparrow Hawk Cookware

They are the most well stocked kitchen shop in Colorado...with all those wonderful little things you never knew you needed and now can't live without.

Not to mention the owners are always there, glad to see people come in, and full of good advice cheerfully offered.

Re: “Pens & Needles Custom Tattoo Company - Weber

Horrible place to go!!!! My boyfriend went there to get elijah the prophet tattood. Full back piece. They butchered him! They gave him hands on the opposite sides of where they should be. The made the arms extremely disproportionate to the body, they completely left out the legs and worst of all theyre idea of a face was nothing but a dripping blob! No eyes no mouth no hair. It looks like the guy was high or drunk off his a** when he did this. He has had two sessions elsewhere to start getting this tattoo fixed and its no where even close to done. These people don't know what there doing. Don't go here!!!!

Re: “First & Main Town Center

Why does it feel like one is being ripped off at first and main...from the bad food and attitude at Nawlins to the smell of souring milk at the ice cream store...it just feels like top dollar for getting a stomach ache.

Re: “Aspen Auto Clinic - Tutt Blvd.

My first experience with them my breaks where squeaking on a fairly new Nissan. We took the car to the service center at my dealership; they said it would be a $450 repair. We took it to aspen and they said it was just a little dust and they cleanned them for around $30. That was a year ago and my breaks are still great. When my old Dodge broke down today I knew who to call. I'm sure they saved me thousands today. They have always been up front about what I need to do and what I "should" do and why. The technician even took me back to the shop, showed me why my car died, what needed to be done and what he was doing. Bonus I had just left the gym and stood in the sun for an hour waiting for the tow truck. I was starved and dehydrated. They have a very nice waiting room filled with free snacks and refreshments. What I was sure was gonna turn into a call to the junk yard only cost me a total of $130. Big shout out and THANK YOU to the Aspen Auto team!

Re: “Bob Penkhus Volvo Mazda at Motor City

This is about the Test Drive Service Center

So irate! I took my car in because it was making a funny noise (user error). I dropped it off on a Wednesday evening because I was not going to be around Thursday when it was scheduled to be looked at. I was set up with a tech Wednesday to do a ride along to see if he could figure out the problem. He couldn’t at the time. Around 2pm Thursday evening I get a call about the problem. I tell them to fix it. This is when I was told that the parts for my car would be special ordered and that they would not be in until Monday.

I was blown away. My issue with that is that it never came up Wednesday. They never said that if parts were needed they would have to be ordered, because your car is so new (2011). No one ever said you will be out of a car for about five days. I wanted them to put it back together and I was going to pick it up, pay for the parts that I was told later, were special ordered so I had to pay for them, and take my car somewhere else. I should have!

I received no call Monday about my car. I called Tuesday after 11 am and the service chic gets on the phone and says "Oh yeah, we'll have it done by the end of the day today." I ask her why that would be because she told me Monday. I asked her why no one contacted me Monday to let me know they were not done. She replies," Let me look at my call log and see, I called this number (my home number) at 3:40pm yesterday." I'm furious now because she says that she has a log saying she called my house and no one called! I say, no, I have a phone log as well and I was at home, you didn't call me. Then she goes into making oh sounds and mumbling about she thought she did and she doesn't know what happened. The kicker is, I gave them my cellphone number and she had previously contacted me on. So… now she lies about calling my home number? She never even said she left a message. Probably because she knew she was lying. She left a message on my cellphone Thursday.

So, not only did they not call me early in the morning Monday to say they didn't receive the parts and would not be done but they lied about calling me. She said the parts eventually came in around 2:30pm Monday. However, she said the car would not be ready until the end of the day Tuesday. That means they knew Monday morning that they weren't going to be able to fix the car and no one called then. Plus, this job should not take all day. What I’m getting is that no one touched my car Monday when the parts came in and they did not start on it Tuesday morning either.
I will never take my car there again unless it has a warranty issue. I took my car in for services such as oil changes and rotations (I drive a lot). No more. I will no longer pass along their name to those who are searching for cars either.

Keeping my car for six days is one thing, however; my major problem is the lie and then the lack of communication. I should not have to call them to chase down my car. They need to get more competent people in there as well. Obviously those that are working in the service department at the desk are overwhelmed and cannot handle the task they are assigned. Lying is not the answer. Had she admitted she forgot to call me I would have been upset but it is different than outright lying to me.

I will have the work inspected by another mechanic because I don't trust them after reading other reviews and the lie.

Re: “Good Earth Garden Center

They essentially allow no returns. If it wilts or dies from bugs or a disease the plant came with you are just out of luck. Also, the owner and office/register staff don't care about customers. I won't be going back.

Every review good and bad is a gift for us to acknowlegde and learn from! We want to be more efficient, ensure satisfaction and quality for every customer!

Re: “Nelson's Barber Shop

Mr "Mike" Nelson Barber, I have been going there quite a few years. Mr Nelson is a good man with a following of down to earth people. Getting your hair cut at this vintage barber shop has been an high light of many of my days. You never know who shows up and what the topic of conversation will be that day. The waits and the cuts are good. GB

Re: “Luisa Graff Jewelers

We, my husband and I, love Luisa Graff Jewelers. They certainly treated us with respect. We felt like we were the only people in the store. We felt "loved". We look forward to her new store. We will be in line to be one of her first customers in her new store!

Re: “Lucy & Louise Atelier

From the moment my husband and I entered Lucy & Louise Paint the Town, we knew we were going to have a unique and fun date night! The atmosphere was welcoming with bright, festive decor while upbeat music played in the background. We settled-in with a set of brushes, an apron tied on, a glass of sparkling lemonade and a blank canvas resting on an easel. Bev, the owner/artist of Lucy & Louise Paint the Town, led us through a series of steps to create the featured painting, which was a Christmas tree for our class (or we could choose to paint whatever our hearts desired). As we painted the night away, we were entertained by Bev's southern charm, funny stories and encouragement that we would see our own individual creativity blossom on the canvas. When our artwork needed to dry, we enjoyed a break to shop at Lucy & Louise Atelier and mingle with the other painters. By the end of the night, we gathered for a group photo with our whimsical paintings, new friends and fun memories captured forever. We highly recommend this new, inspiring experience for a date night, girls-night-out, or just a treat for your own soul! Once you try it, you'll soon be Painting the Town along with us and starting a collection of masterpieces!
