Tucked away beauty supply store in Snellville

A beauty supply store that has been in Snellville for years is the Beauty Shack. Situated at 2393 Pate St near Civic Drive behind Snellville United Methodist Church, it looks like a tiny little hair salon with a beauty supply attached to it, and that's exactly what it is, but it's VERY LARGE inside and has VERY GOOD prices!

If you thought Snellville just had Ulta and Sally Beauty Supply, think again. This location isn't quite as good as the others, but they have a huge assortment of shampoos, conditioners, combs, nail supply, hair nets, OPI nail polishes and more.

I haven't used them for hair styling/hair cut, so I cannot tell you how they do with that service, but the place stays busy and I was amazed by the selection in the beauty supply area of the store. They also had quite a few hair accessories, many that would be nice for special events like prom and weddings. The phone number of Hair Shack is 770-978-1191.

Centerville Highway Walmart store to have major renovations

The Walmart store located at 3435 Centerville Highway in Snellville is undergoing a remodel. The store, which was built in 2006, will remain open during the renovations. The location will receive a full remodel from the inside out. Walmart expects the remodel to be completed by June or July of 2011.
Every department of the stores will be updated, including all new shelving, signing, flooring and product assortment. The stores will also feature a new layout designed to make shopping for everyday items easier and faster by aligning the products customers purchase the most.

“We are excited to bring an improved shopping experience to our customers,” said Kenny Banks, manager of the store. “We listened to our customers and are redesigning the store to make shopping at Walmart even easier."

A map of the store layout will be available at the entrance and signs to help you find your way will be located throughout the stores. Walmart plans to have most of the construction and moving work done during the overnight hours to reduce impact on customers.

Staples Scenic Highway Snellville GA

I must say, I am really digging this store now. Most of the time, I've been going to Office Depot, but have tried Staples the last few times I've needed office supplies just because the location is better than having to struggle with all the traffic further down Scenic Hwy (Office Depot is by Publix and traffic is FUBAR over there)

It's been working out great for me at Staples because the have interesting & useful items and pretty good prices.

Today, I needed to get scientific calculators...Read the rest of my review on Yelp

Relocated antique shop invites you to pick 5 FREE items

B & B Flea/Antique Market has moved into the Crown Point Plaza shopping center (between Mellow Mushroom and CVS) It's next to Global Karate.

B & B is sort of hidden where it is. You can't really see it from US-78. But if you like antiques or even just a fun trip down memory lane, go check it out.

Here's a little bonus for you when you visit - Let Ron know you heard about his store from My Snellville Blog, and you will be able to pick out FIVE items off his tables in the back (see picture) 100% FREE! No additional purchase required. Ron just wants you to visit his store. How cool is that? The only 'catch' is that the freebies have to be off his back tables. KEEP IN MIND that is photo is not representative of the store as whole. This is the clearance type section.

Today I bought some Hull pottery pieces from the regular part of the store and some Civil War-era bullets (Psst! Those are a birthday gift for my husband, so don't spill the beans until after June 2011).

You just never know what you'll find at B & B. So go and check it out and let me know what 5 items you got!

1990E Main Street/US78, Snellville Ga 30078
Phone: 770-715-3128

Closed Sundays.
Hours are subject to change (as Ron is determining what is needed in this new location)

Beauty Mart of Snellville

Today I happened to be at the Office Depot store on Scenic Highway in Snellville and I had a little bit of time so I decided to check out the store next door to Office Depot in the shopping center...the simply-named Beauty Mart.

I figured it would be like a small ULTA store. It is, sort of.  But it's different, and I like that. I like the prices. It's a store for all women, a good fit for the diversity in Snellville. Definitely if you are looking for African American/Black/Ethnic hair products, this is a place you need to go. They really have a huge selection of products, beauty and hair tools, and wigs.

I like the Biolage hair products, and I saw that Beauty Mart has them for $2-$3 less than I have seen them elsewhere. I can't advise you on the price of the black hair care products, because I don't know how those prices run (if you check it out, please let us know by leaving a comment!)

The store has accessories like belts and even sandals. I saw some really pretty rhinestone necklaces that would be great for prom accessories, only about $15 each. Many cubic zirconia earrings were only $1.99.

The address of Beauty Mart is 1905 Scenic Highway, Suite 8050, Snellville Ga 30078.

buybuy BABY will fill the old Snellville Circuit City location

A new store is coming to the space previously occupied by Circuit City in the Presidential Commons shopping center on Scenic Highway. This is the same shopping center that houses Kroger, Joann Etc., Party City and Home Depot.

The new store is called buybuy BABY. The store will be about 28,000 square feet and is scheduled to open sometime this summer. Here is a photo of the interior of one of the company's existing locations, so you can see what to expect.

buybuy BABY was founded in 1996 and acquired by Bed Bath & Beyond in 2007. The Chain now operates over 30 stores that range in size from 28,000 to 60,000 square feet.

This is good news for expectant parents and grandparents, who will no longer have to drive to Duluth or elsewhere for baby equipment and products at competitive prices. It will be fierce competition for New Baby Products, which has been in the New London Plaza for many years.
