I have had a Bergner's store account for 30+ years. I like that it can be used in any of this group of department stores such as Carson Pirie Scott, Elder Bierman, the Boston Store, Bon-Ton, Younkers, and others. The same card can be used in any of their stores in any state. Over the years I have taken advantage of great promotions and sales for clothing, shoes, purses, outer wear, kitchen items and small appliances, bedding, etc. I have also purchased from their furniture galleries and had great experience with their furniture delivery and set up. In some cases they have even hauled away the old piece of furniture. Their furniture is on an extended pay when using the store csrd. Very satisfied customer.

Lots of hard to find items from my childhood. They have great quality items but have become too expensive over time and I only seem to order now once a year or so. I do hope they stay in business because they do have some products that I haven't been able to find anywhere else.

The Chicago location is very good for supplies such as paper and ink. However, when I took my laptop in for diagnosis and repair they initially said it would be ready in 2 days. When I went in to pick it up they had not started working on it yet. The next week they called me and said they needed to order a part. It was 3 weeks later before they had it done. The same problem recurred just over 2 months later and they said there was only a 60 DAY WARRANTY ON PARTS AND SERVICE!

We have used Omaha Steaks for many years. Watch for their Combo Specials when they are on sale. Join the Rewards Club and earn points for every purchase. Points can be redeemed for a variety of items including food. All orders are shipped in reusable coolers packed with dry ice. Great for gifts and for family cookouts.

I have had no problems but only use them for very specific purchases. I go to the store twice a year to stock up on large volume paper and plastic household supplies. Examples include paper towels, paper napkins, bathroom tissue, plastic cups, plastic cutlery, paper plates, and the like. I seldom purchase food items, electronics, or clothing items. I stick with what I know. No disappointments.

Order with confidence. Don't mistakenly interpret "country" - it does NOT mean cheap or too casual. I have purchased lace panels for the French Doors in our Dining Room, formal draperies with sheer liners for a bedroom, Roman shades for the three season sun porch, and colorful patterned curtains with valances for the kitchen. There is a wide variety of styles, fabrics and sizes. They have willingly sent fabric swatches to help with design choices. All the necessary hardware is available. They have quickly exchanged sizes for me when I mis-measured. They also have a good selection of home decor items such as matching bedding, pillows, rugs, etc. I have used them for decades and will continue.

Because there is a store near me, I stop in quite often to check their sales. I have a membership card which earns discounts on purchases. While this is technically a book store, they also sell a variety of other products. I have purchased stationery, pens, calendars, candles and other items. Good quality. A bit pricey; wait for the sales and use the member discounts.

A friend and I went to The Red Door Salon and Day Spa on the Magnificent Mile in Chicago and had a great day of pampering and relaxation before a special occasion that night. They offer full services. I did not have the massages but did use the facial, hair services, and make up as well as manicure and pedicure. Pricey but worth it.

I have found Taste of Home a great place to learn about cooking and baking. My first introduction was a gift subscription from my Mother to their monthly magazine many years ago. I eventually purchased a couple of their cookbooks. The reason I love their website is that it is free of charge and you can search for recipes by category, such as slow cooker meals. I also like that I can learn about many different kitchen tools, techniques and ingredient substitutions. An essential reference guide for home cooks.

My favorites are the home cooking features where I can learn actual recipes and techniques. Best (to me) are the Pioneer Woman and Farmhouse Rules. I can do without the chopped competitions although I do love watching the Child Chefs. I have seen children so small they had to stand on step stools to reach the counter top. I am so impressed that children understand sauteing, poaching, braising, and other terms I didn't know until my 30s. Like other networks, you will find some shows you like and others you will skip. With all the stress in our lives today, I find the cooking shows relaxing.

Love It Or List It is one of the few remaining shows I like on HGTV. I sure miss the old classics. And this is supposed to be Home and GARDEN tv. WHERE ARE THE GARDENS? There used to be so many shows dedicated to Landscaping Design, Curb Appeal, different Growing Zones and which flowers, berries, shrubs and trees were hardy survivors... all these programs are gone, replaced by hours of (to me) boring oddities shows. This channel has really declined and is not even a shadow of its former self.

I used to love Starbucks, both their brick and mortar and their online store. However, In recent years, I have experienced a sharp decline in quality, both in their products and in their service. Yet their prices continue to climb. Their online store seems to have low inventory and when they do have a product I like in stock, shipping is slow. As for their coffee, I have found several brands whose flavors I prefer with lower prices.

I have purchased probably a dozen of their plush stuffed animals and the quality of each is outstanding. There has never been a problem with any if them I have never tried their games or puzzles but if the quality is even close to the stuffed animals, they will be well worth the price.

I have ordered probably a dozen times. All orders arrived quickly were exactly as described and packed well. The candles are in heavy glass jars and each is separately packed in its own thick cardboard box. All rings were the proper sizes. Most of the jewelry had value for approximately the price of the candle. I have given these as gifts probably half a dozen times with no complaints. I appreciate the consistency of product quality and packaging; it helps me maintain reasonable expectations.

I have ordered from this site numerous times for gift giving. They specialize in Personalized items, including names, team numbers, and more. They have a good variety of items that I have never seen personalized at other stores such as Family names on pillows, wall art designed around names, and children's stuffed animals. They also have some jewelry items, photo frames, clothing, etc. The inventory is constantly changing. One of my favorite purchases was a cup with a poem about Sisters. I had the names of my sisters and my name engraved on the cup and ordered one for all of us and gave them out when we were all together for a Holiday. We all live in different states so it is very special when we get together. That item has grown in sentimental value over the years. This is my "go to" site for personalization.

Paula Young has been a real life saver for me in recent years. I suffered medical hair loss and was concerned about looking nice while working in public.
This company offers a wide variety of wigs, hair pieces, and extensions as well as accessories and tools to care for your products. I love the natural look with a mix of colors including highlights, lowlights and root colors. There are always around 30 basic color shades to choose from. There are a variety of lengths from ear to shoulder and longer. Styles range from straight to wavy to curly. The customer service has been great and I continue to be a satisfied customer.

I was able to get immediate online information free of charge. I received a call from *******426 with recorded message saying the IRS had issued a warrant for my arrest and to call back immediately. In my case this was obviously untrue as I had just received a tax refund from the IRS.
I googled the phone number and many sites appeared, some of which charged a fee to conduct a search. I chose this site and found numerous comments and questions from people inquiring about this phone number. One commentor even took the time to report the full text of the recording, verbatim. I left my comment, and hope it brought reassurance to others. Reading of the experience of other people was very confirming and I was grateful to get instant information free of charge.

For many years this was one of my favorite places to shop. A few years ago I noticed they cut their in-store customer service. First it was no BBW boxes for large volume purchases. Then, no more BBW shopping bags. Next they eliminated the small cello bags with BBW ribbons for tying for gifting. I'm expecting them soon to require customers to bring their own bags. I took to ordering online but now have restricted my orders to only a few times a year when their hand soaps go on sale. I buy in bulk. There are still some fragrances I like, although most of the old classics have been retired. I realize times are hard and I hope they do not shutter their brick and mortar locations.

I have been a satisfied customer for over 2 decades. Most of my purchases have been in the following categories: 1) Home products such as towels, bedding, pots and pans, 2) Clothing, 3) Watches, jewelry, and handbags, 4) Skin care and cosmetics.
I have had very few disappointments and they have been addressed professionally and quickly. In most cases I received the replacement before I even got the return shipped back to them. In the few cases where my size or color choice was not available I was offered Spendable Cash credited to my account.
My favorite features are the Flex Pay which divides your payment into several monthly installments, and the friendly and helpful customer service. Because I had a 60 hour work week with long commute, they became my shopping life line! I find their quality as good as department stores with many name brands. No complaints whatsoever.

I ordered a special occasion dress for an 8 year old girl. While the quality was good the shipping was so slow she had outgrown it by the time it arrived! Way overpriced. Next time I will just go to Macy's or Bon-Ton's, both near me.
