Chastain Jewelers
I've been going to Chastain for years (since 2001). I bought my first engagement ring which was beautiful...I have an odd ring size and they steered me away from rings that wouldn't have sized well (instead of just trying to upsell me like other stores - they were very educational which I appreciated). I also have bought Pandora for myself and family, two watches, watch batteries for my son's watches and three smaller diamond rings - all which had to be special ordered close to my size, then they resized to my exact size there. I go in regularly and they clean all my jewelry for free (not just what I bought there), have repaired a few of my other items and are always very friendly. I highly recommend them!

Harveys Supermarket
I'm extremely impressed by the customer service of this store. I lost my keys in this store last week and there were several employees in the store that were very helpful in searching the store as well as the parking lot with me to find them. I went back into the store today and the employees recognized me and greeted me. They are very pleasant and helpful with anything that you may need. I will continue to go to this store and reccomen it to friends and family.

I'm disappointed in the purchase of 20 10-lb buckets of SMITHFIELD by Luther PORK CHITTERLINGS from Harvey's of Lake City, Florida.REASON: the buckets were partially filled. Therefore, I took my scale a weighed three buckets. Only one weighed over five lbs. This weight measured was the uncleaned chitterlings, just as they were bucketed and sold.These chitterlings were processed in Smithfield, Virginia 23431-0447LOT 3029EST 18079

What nice people! I took a watch in for them to look at and see if perhaps they could repair it. They repaired a minor issue for no charge! No one does that! I will definitely be back to Chastain's to purchase jewelry.

Tips & Advices
Interior designers can generally work on every type of room, but one should not assume that all of them can work on every type of space. More complicated projects--for example those in buildings with historic preservation strictures, or those that are going for sustainability certifications--will be suited to interior designers with specific expertise. Also, interior designers that have experience in a certain type of project may not want to take on projects that are outside their expertise. For example, an interior designer who has only worked on commercial projects may not want to do a small private home.
Every interior designer has their own style, but some designers are more versatile than others. Some really do specialize in functionality and code compliance, whereas others are more focused on aesthetics. Interior decorators are completely focused on visual impact, and therefore should be reviewed and selected based on how well their style is a match for the client’s tastes.
Full-service interior design starts with an assessment of a site and the client’s long-term needs for that space. It encompasses concept design, floor plans and lighting plans, providing project specifications to contractors, supervising  contractor negotiations and installations, applying for permits, and shopping for all the materials and pieces for the project. On top of this, there are the “decorator” deliverables, i.e. creating the aesthetic of the space, selecting wall colors/covers and furniture pieces, purchasing products and installing them.
An interior designer may come into a development project very early on, working with the developer and architect from the pre-construction phase. They may be the one to design floor plans, decide where to place interior walls, and supervise contractors that are installing elements of the build. They often work on commercial projects, although many of them work on residential projects. Interior designers can “switch hats” and do interior decoration, which means they are only focused on the aesthetic elements and visual components of a residence.
An interior designer or interior decorator should ask a potential client what the scope of the project is, what the projected budget is, what payment structure the client wants, and what the timeline for the project is. Also, they should be asking whether the client has any samples of other projects they like, and would like to use as a guideline. They could also ask what the client’s budget for furniture/accessories/art is, since that in many cases is a separate amount from the budget for the designer’s labor. If an interior designer is being interviewed early into a new build or a renovation project, they might ask questions to determine whether they can collaborate with architects and contractors from early on, to execute their vision for the space. If that is not in line with a client’s wishes, the client can then say that the project scope is for interior design only.
