Re: “Best Shoe Store

I bought the wrong size shoes for years because the salesman didn't measure me. He went by what I was presently wearing. My feet hurt. Went to apodiatrist. HE DIDN'T MEASURE EITHER! Finally at a Redwing store the clerk INSISTED on checking my foot size. 13B instead of the 12D which I'd been wearing. The drill was the stores didn't stock 13s and they went wider with a 12D to make the sale! I think Hide and Soe is the best shoe store I've ever done business with!

Re: “Best Computer Repair

I took my laptop into this store a week ago and was told they would clean a few viruses and my computer would be ready in a day. Now.....one week later, I am leaving messages daily and getting no return calls. This is a very unprofessional business, especially when it comes to customer service. I would NOT recommend this company to anyone who lives in Missoula.

Re: “Best Computer Repair

I took my laptop here with a completely dead screen just the power light and battery light would come on. While it was in the shop I googled an easy way to fix these notebooks with these symptoms by re-flashing the BIOS. When I went to pick it up they said the motherboard was bad and it wasn't worth fixing. They still charged me 27 bucks. I asked if the tech had tried re-flashing the BIOS and she said she didn't know. I asked if they had taken care putting it back together because that was something I wanted to try and she said of course they always do that.

So I take it home and I can't get the power cord back in because there was a big wire sticking out of the casing where they had carelessly screwed it back together. I couldn't get to the screws so I had to take it back and have them put it together right. It was late in the afternoon so I had to wait another day. The next day I go to pick it up and she said the tech knew about re-flashing the BIOS but didn't try that because the HDD light didn't come on. I said you mean the power light and she said no the HDD light. I thought well of course the HDD wouldn't come on if it was toast.

So I take the notebook home and follow the instructions for re-flashing the BIOS and presto the computer comes back to life like nothing was wrong with it. They had taken the thing all apart for nothing when there was an easy trick for fixing it.

This might be the best computer repair shop in Missoula and their prices are better than Computer Guys but this pisses me off. The tech leaves and has the receptionist put the screws back in things he's fixing. He needs to spend a little more time earning all those framed certificates he has hanging on the wall. Also I think he makes a little money on the side recycling dead computers.

If they say your computer is dead and not worth fixing I might suggest getting a second opinion. This took a long time to type but I hope it saves someone the headache of having their computer bite the dust.

Re: “Best Fresh Produce

Not a surprise that one of your largest advertisers has made your best list the umpteenth year in a row. Not all thier produce is 100% USDA organic, and there are other stores in Missoula, even if they don't advertise in the Independent.

Re: “Best Kids' Clothing

In my opinion, the best Kids Clothing is at Burlington. I bought the new Osh Kosh B'Gosh outfits there and they were so much cheaper than the other stores had them for. My Kids love them.

Re: “Best Tanning Salon

"Maintaining a killer tan year-round can be tough"--no, not really. Tanning is literally a killer and is right up there with smoking for acquiring cancer. Why do you continue to have this as a category? Why not combine it with the smoke shops and call it "Cancer!: Guaranteed!" Don’t believe me? Call any dermatologist in Missoula and ask them what they think about tanning beds and tanning in general.
