I go in here all the time to check out all the awesome deals that they have. Heather was very helpful in helping me pick out the awesome entertainment center i got my wife for her birthday. It had a built in fireplace and the deal was even hotter. Then i went back to check out the mattress selection due to my daughter out growing her toddler mattress. Soon as i walked in, Eric came up and asked if i needed any help and was very friendly. I soon walked out with a new mattress and a few other goodies. I highly recommend you come try this out before you go spend $1,000's anywhere else.
Very friendly and helpful. I found a scarf I liked that didn't have a pattern. They wrote the pattern for me
I will NEVER do business with these people again. I bought my daughter's bed from them a couple of years ago and had no problems but I went in just this month 9/2/15 and put the same item on lay-a-way for myself and the first employee was very nice but now the girl, Heather, has given me nothing but trouble and she's nasty. When I put the bed on lay-a-way I told the man I needed to pick it up before the end of September and was told to give them a 10 day notice to be sure the merchandise was there and ready to pick up. I went in to make a payment and gave the notice and said I needed to get my bed on Thursday 9/17 and was told it would be in long before that. The bed is not there and I not only got a lot of grief from Heather but was told my bed wouldn't be available until at least Friday and she couldn't make any guarantees even then. I asked for the owner's name and contact number and was refused and there is no listing for a different location to call. Heather claimed the owner was trying to open a new store in Dalton but I was unable to get any other information. I now have a house full of company coming in on Saturday morning and absolutely no idea when I will have a bed or with Heather being so nasty if my bed is going to be damage to the point that I won't accept it. There is a no refund policy and an additional 20% restocking fee for something they don't even have and I have no time to go look for another bed, I'm out my money. I should have gone to I75 closeouts and had them order what I wanted and probably gotten it at a lower price and had HONEST people to deal with.
CHECK OUT THE SPECIALS!! THEY OFFER EACH MONTH
I will not shop here. They may have some good prices on a few things but not worth the time and trouble. They wouldn't tell us where they got their furniture from unlike other places that were more then willing to tell you everything you needed to know. Also there were dozens of item that walmart sells that had scratches and dents on them and they where trying to sell them for way more. I'm not going to pay more for something that I can go to my local walmart and get brand new for less. My family will not be back to this place ever.
I had a awesome experience while I stayed there not only where the nurse sweet as can be but they where so supportive with stabilizing me on the right meds!! Chris Henderson was the best Dr I have ever meet. He listened to my concerns and needs and got me on the right meds. The group meetings where beyond helpful and so educational and very helpful. I met some amazing friends that I know I can call anytime for help. I am so blessed and thankful to all the nurses and Chris Henderson for being so kind and supportive all YOU where amazing!!! I can't thank you enough!!! Love all you guys!! I definitely recommend the Crisis Stabilization unit to any one suffering from Anxiety And depression there the best at what they do!!! Thank you again guys for all you did for me!!
Bought a Coca-Cola polar bear ceramic cookie jar. It was priced at $50, but the guy told me it was half-off day, and I could get it for only $25. He proceeded to tell me that it was an antique and that on the internet it sells for around $150. Naturally, I feel like I'm getting a great deal. However, I later discover it was made in 1994 (and I don't know whether that's old enough now to be considered antique) and I checked completed listings for this item on ebay, and very few of them sell, and most for under $20. I now feel this place works on dishonesty to sell their stuff, and I even doubt there was such a half-off day. Not coming back.
this business is still open with a new phone # (423)320-5424... call today...
Finding the right arborists for the job is just like hiring any other professional tradespeople, such as plumbers or electricians. You want trustworthy people who know what they are doing, especially since they are working on or around your home - the most expensive piece of property you own.
Don't hire the first person who claims to be a professional, but only has a chainsaw and a flatbed pickup truck.
What Kind of Work Do You Need Done?
Before you search for an arborist, make sure you know what kind of work needs completing. Do your trees need a simple trim of their leaves and branches, or do you require a more serious task, such as sawing low-hanging branches that could cause damage to your house if a severe storm occurs?
Once you know the extent of the work you need completed, make a list of tree service providers in your area. If you know you have low-hanging branches that could prove to be problematic, it's smart to find an arborist sooner rather than later. Many tree service providers get a a lot of business after storms hit, so you could be waiting for a while if you delay in calling a professional.
You have a better chance of getting a good deal on trimming or tree removal if you get any necessary work done in the winter, as opposed to busy seasons like spring and summer.
Look for Reviews and Ask for Recommendations
Start your search for a tree service by looking at the online reviews of any companies in your area. Remember your family, friends and neighbors are also trusted sources of information, so ask them if they can recommend a tree service to you. Ask them what kind of jobs the arborist performed, how much they charged and if they were pleased with the results.
Are They Certified Arborists?
Not all tree service companies feature certified arborists. If you have trees you want to keep and care for, you need a full-fledged arborist for the job. Ask the company to verify qualifications and credentials before you sign or agree to anything.
Hiring a certified arborist gives you more options. In case you decide you don't want trees chopped down, ask if there's anything he or she can do to spare any sickly trees you might have.
Remember that the landscape of your yard either adds or subtracts to the value of your home, so upkeep of your trees is very important if you want good home equity.
Ask for Proof of Insurance
Before hiring a company, you need to know it's carrying enough insurance to cover any damage done to your property or any injuries that could result from the work done on your home.
Make sure you verify the tree service is insured and for the proper amount.
Request a Walkthrough
Don't sign a contract for the work until the arborist walks you through the details of the job and explains the kind of work he or she will be doing, how long it may take and what kind of equipment will be used.
While doing a walkthrough, ask how debris will be disposed of. Will the service be responsible for clean-up? It could be you want the tree converted into mulch or firewood. If so, make sure you and the arborist are both on the same page before you make a hiring decision.
This is also a great time to ask about the service's qualifications. Ask for a list of references you can contact regarding the quality of the service's work, as well as the tyeps of jobs it has performed in the past.
Compare Estimates and Average Costs
It's always smart to request estimates for jobs from several companies before making a decision. Obtain a written bid for any work.
How much you'll pay for services depends on how tall and large the tree is and what type of job is required. This is why the average cost of trimming a tree varies widely. Trimming or pruning a 30-foot tree can cost anywhere from $75 to $400, while taller species such as oaks and pines may run from $150 to almost $900.
The average cost of completely cutting down a large tree can be well over $1,000 with stump removal. The price of grinding down the tree's stump also varies. Many tree service professionals charge by the diameter, with the average price being $3 per inch.
Keep in mind that the more dangerous the job, the more it will cost to remove or even trim a tree. If the tree is located in a hard-to-reach area or if there are power lines either near it or in the way, a tree service will charge more.
With that being said, it's important to get an itemized invoice that shows how much each part of the job will cost, from the actual chopping down of the tree to the stump grinding and disposal.
A tree service professional, also known as an arborist, does much more than chop down trees and remove stumps from your front yard. As a homeowner, you likely want some greenery on your property. However, out-of-control trees and shrubbery can be hazardous to you and anyone who enters your yard. Trees can also balloon your homeowners insurance rates if a branch falls on your home, vehicle or somebody walking on your property.
Experienced tree service providers can give you insight into how to properly care for your trees and what to do if any of them are diseased. In fact, many homeowners regularly call on arborists to diagnose the health of their trees. Many times, tree service workers must fell a tree if it has contracted an ailment.
However, just keeping track of the fertilizer you use, the soil the tree is in and the amount of water the tree needs can keep some diseases at bay. This is why it's smart to hire an arborist, who can advise you on whether you can save the trees on your property or whether you should cut them down and remove them.
Arborists can also treat the tree and possibly cure it of common diseases such as canker, heart rot, root and butt rot, sooty mold, powdery mildew or verticillium wilt. Some of these ailments attack certain species of trees via the soil or roots, and if they aren't caught soon, the plant could die.
Tree service experts not only diagnose the diseases ailing your saplings, they also provide insect control if it happens that the plants are sick due to pests. Not all tree diseases are caused by fungi, bacteria and lack of water. Some bugs burrow through the bark and damage hardwood and softwood trees. Depending on the species of trees in your yard and the region of the country you live in, aphids, the infamous emerald ash borer or other pests could destroy your healthy trees. Calling an arborist sooner rather than later can help you head this problem off at the pass before you're stuck with a treeless yard.
Not only can an arborist help you ward off tree diseases and pests, he or she can also study samples of the soil on your property to determine if the ground isn't nutrient-rich enough to support vegetation.
Tree Cutting and Removal
Felling trees and mulching them into pulp is the most common job for which homeowners need arborists. However, you might need a tree service if you plan to construct a new home or if you're adding an addition to a pre-existing residence. If a tree happens to be in the way of your plans, call a service company. They can chop the offending plant down and remove the stump from your property so you can start building.
However, if you wish to protect the trees around your home from any construction work, a tree service can also help. An arborist can prune some of the branches to ensure the tree stays healthy but doesn't interfere with new construction or additions.
If a storm hits and damages your residence, a tree service professional is usually on your list of people to call for help after first responders and your insurer.
A professional service can completely remove a tree or just prune and saw off its branches if a storm damages a tree. After sawing or destroying the tree, professionals can then remove any of the dangerous debris from your yard by hauling it off.
Planting New Trees
Tree service companies don't just get rid of sickly or dead hardwood and softwood trees, they also offer their expertise and assistance if you want to plant new ones. If you want to add to the greenery in your yard but you're concerned about the right species to plant or where to put it on your property, seek the advice of an arborist.
Last but not least, tree service companies are also great places to get your wood if you happen to have a fireplace. Many tree businesses offer free delivery and stacking of hardwoods, such as maple or birch. These can make for the best firewood because they burn slowly and don't produce as much smoke as other types.
No industry is safe from hucksters and scam artists, unfortunately, and tree service providers are no exception to this rule. Do your due diligence and always ask for proof of insurance and certification before agreeing to any work. You will also want to be on the lookout for telltale signs of scams. Be cautious of any company that:
