After my visit there, I really appreciated the assistance I was given and am blessed to deal with these wonderful people who know what they are doing and will always love to help you. And a special thank you to sister bouchra and sister najwa who helped me a lot.
My husband and I have been going to Conrad, Craig & Martin for about 25 years and usually see Todd, but originally started out seeing Jeff before his passing. However, this year has been a total nightmare. I have been trying to reach Todd since the end of March and can't get a hold of him. He kept all my original documents saying that we would finish things up in the next week and then he would return my documents(This was mid March). In addition, I have no idea if he filed the taxes or at least filed an extension. I had a surgery 2 years ago that went terribly wrong. I needed a few of those original documents that Todd refuses to return for my court case, but I was never able to get Todd to respond to emails or calls requesting the documents be returned. My husband has even stopped there on many occasions but had no luck catching him. I had to file a continuance for my court case which is costing me more money, not to mention the penalties, etc I will probably have to pay if these taxes weren't filed. Avoid this firm!
Unique Thrift is not at this location anymore. There is another thrift store in its place, but its selection is not as good as Unique's.
One of the pictures is not from this store. There are no fitting rooms at this location. Maybe they had them in the past, but they are no more now.
They provided me with bag lunches, clothing, information on shelters and healthcare and rental help.
PERMANENTLY CLOSED as of AUGUST, 2017!!!!! There's no more to say nor add to fill space w/100 characters.
A very good example of a very unprofessional company! Nobody followed professional ethics. No respect. No values. An irresponsible leadership, a big story teller and non-performer. Very dirty and cluttered facilities.They won't return a call / email or provide an update.
I drove a long way, was a few minutes late due to the insane traffic in miserable and worthless Chiraq, and they could've given a damn.
The hours for the facility constantly change. There is a pool at this facility But the hours do not correspond to customer demand. On Saturdays and Sundays during the hottest months of the year there has been a substantial reduction in hours for the pool. This is because of the facility's manager named Amanda, and not the needs or desires of the customers. Local Private Gym's are better. They actually have operating hours and increasing membership for less than they are charging at this facility. There is always up to 4 employees at this facility when there are at most maybe 6 members at this location during the Day. I have never seen Amanda sweep or Mop, and with 4 employees what actually is she getting paid for, to manage them??? Teaching a singular class to seniors for a hour a day and that warrants a 8 hour paycheck? It is not coincidental that all the times for swimming for anyone except when she is teaching her class have been cut short. If the pool is available and people know they will come, but if you keep changing the hours of course the will not. The locker rooms are always a mess. All other YMCA's in the area are cleaner use almost the same amount of people to maintain them and have better hours. You are allowing this facility to blemish the reputation of the YMCA and the reduction in membership is a direct result because of one person, Amanda. The numbers do not lie. in areas that the facility is run in a professional manner and not a demagoguery to appease only a select few of the higher mangers or supervisors(or whatever position Amanda holds). Because if the only reason she has a position is because of one class and the potential of increased membership of the facility is dismissed you are being foolish. The YMCA was set up to serve the community or has this changed to just serving the will of Employees with a over exaggerated level of importance in the greater scheme of delivering the YMCA's Vision? She does not work well within the faculty.
Akarama is a community center in the Woodlawn neighborhood where different venues can be given. My daughter recently had her reception there and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. The center is clean and welll kept, and the price was very reasonable. I would like to give a shout out to all those on the staff who helped to contribute to make this a joyous occasion for my daughter and her new husband. God bless.
