I stopped in from Alaska while visiting a friend in Tucson. Turned into a wonderful evening. Yvonne made me feel like I was one of the family. Great experience and I am going to miss the tastings until I can get back there again. It's on my list when I return.
Weekend wine tastings at CataVinos are fantastic. Along with your 6 tastes (amazingly priced at just $10.00!!!) you get gourmet cheese as well as palette cleansers. Yvonne also has a really nice assortment of reasonably priced cheeses, meats, and crackers for purchase to accompany your wine. After your tasting you can purchase a glass of your choice for just $5.00. Each week the wine list is built around a clever theme so you can go every weekend and be sure to taste completely different wines. I've gone there on a whim on my own, planned with friends, and had many personal parties there and I always bring out of town guests there. The atmosphere is lovely both inside the shop and outside on the patio. This is one of the best spots for Tucson fun and a great way to support local business!
Best tucson pottery.
Always a joy to stop in at Cata Vinos. Yvonne and the staff are always so helpful in helping find the right wine for my tastes. So many wonderful wine to choose from, and it isn't necessary to bust my budget on pricey wines. Highly recommended.
This is a wonderful wine shop with a variety of wines that are budget-friendly. Cuvee, the greeting dog, is super friendly as is Vino the cat. What could be better than tasting wine while petting a cat or dog? The personal attention Yvonne Foucher gives to each customer cannot be matched by any of the "big box" stores. Definitely earns every star possible!
Great wines, great prices, and best of all the staff and shoppe are animal friendly! Cuvee the dog and Vino the cat are wonderful additions to this lovely shoppe. Wines from around the world, fabulous bargains for Wine Club members, with an option to donate a small monthly amount to local charities. Do us all a favor and skip the Big Box Wine stores!
Fabulous neighborhood find! Friendly owner, great staff, and wonderful tastings, all for reasonable prices, and then there's the shoppe dog, Cuvee, who greets everyone with a full wag. The price for the wine tasting is very reasonable, and palate cleansers are included - then there's the best deal, buy a bottle of wine from the tasting and you get $2.00 off your tasting; buy a case and your tasting is free - what could be better. Yvonne makes sure everyone gets questions answered, educates you in an easy manner, and is always available during shoppe hours to help you select the best choice for your tastes. Please visit CataVinos so it can continue to stay open.
We were visiting Tucson for my trip home to Tennessee,it was my birthday and stopped in a saw a pretty yellow oval sapphire diamond ring I really liked and my husband got it for me,even though I was leaving the next morning they got it sized and ready to go for me. Thank you so much rainbow Jewelers you were so helpful and nice to us hope to see you in the future a very satisfied customer.
Rate it 2 star. Lacks vision for the center with a great view. Anchor store Walmart huge mistake. That started attracting poor stores. Suggest adding Michaels arts and crafts, restaurant serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, Apple Store, art gallery, out back resturant, Mimi, dump Tuesday store. Marana has everything compared to this area.
Eric is the best!!!!! He has been maintaining our garden for the past 3 years and he is the main reason we remain loyal to Sundrea (and previously Sheldon). Service is easy to schedule thanks to Nicole's efficiency.
Do you sell Berlandieria lyrata?
BEST PHOTO LAB IN TOWN. IN COMPLETE DISAGREEMENT WITH THE ABOVE REVIEW. Richard, the owner, and the entire staff, know what they are doing and provide good quality photo services, good customer service, at good prices. I have been using Centric Photo for years for both personal and professional photo needs including scanning of 40-50 year old negatives and slides and they always come out right.
Nicest Metaphysical store around.
I am a Grandma of a 7 year old boy and almost 4 year old girl.
I LOVE THIS STORE!
There is a "playyard" where the kids can play while you shop and the behind the counter help is GREAT! ") Grandma Donna :)
So much fun!
BEWARE....POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS , POOR QUALITY....
Centric is NOT place to go if you are looking for quality. You would be better off going to Walgreen! No Joke. They are over priced for the quality you receive.
Their proof strip does not give an adequate representation of the final print. My photo was black and white, they couldn't even get the contrast right. When I asked them to correct it. They got very defensive and Richard said I would have to pay again to have it reprinted and would only give a small discount for a corrected print. I had already paid a pretty penny (because at the time I believed that it would be worth the extra money to support a local business and get a higher quality image printed) Boy was I wrong. I came in to pick up the corrected print and it was double the price Richard had originally quoted me for the corrections. Its sad when a local business that you want to support will not work with you when you are unsatisfied and then lie about the price to squeeze an extra buck out of you... I ended up not getting my final print due to the price increase and will not be going back again. Use Photographic Works or Jones Photo Lab.. Do not trust your work with Centric.
POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS
Hmmm. Could have been a wonderful experience but too much crammed into too little space. A little too aggressive selling wine and the aisles are a bit narrow. Variety is okay but not everything is of the best quality, i mean c’m if you’re gonna sell truffle oil couldn’t you have chosen a good one?
Meat department shines but all their pork has been brines but if you like spending money on salt water, go for it. BUT, too much of the meat is dry packed disallowing any real butchering or options with regard to fat - the main component of flavor in meat. They try but they just don’t have the goods. Now that there is a REAL Whole Foods in town they will need to pick up their game.
There ARE independent butchers and fishmongers in town that put this place to shame.
Their produce is well waxed and geometrically piled but has very little variety. Where exactly do I find Escarole or Rapini?
Too bad one can not award half stars because it honestly only deserves two and a half from me.
It gets all five stars because I can’t think of a competitor. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly without over-reaching. Great selection of wild bird food and garden accoutrements for the feathery folk.
Hands down best wine store in Tucson. Best wine tastings, best service and best wines. A little hard to find and doesn't look like much but well worth the effort.
I can relate to the above posting! I've had issues with this woman as well and she is an owner- I dont want to say her full name, but it's very unique and begins with an A. I'd be very careful when working w her and tread lightly. I worked with her on and off w/o problem and she was quite helpful as I'd been struggle with some very serious spiritual issues. I started noticing problems during sessions when I would be sharing about my experiences and things that helped me, and she seemed more interested on touting her own abilities and her own 'huge' role in my spiritual experience. However, the last straw was when she started trying to charge me for a double session with one of her colleagues when I only had one, saying something to the effect of, 'well, your parents can afford it.' (I dont think so!) I was told my session would run b/w 1-1.5 hrs and that's what I was given. When I bucked back, insisting the extra money, I'd been guilted into paying, be refunded, and tried to straighten out the discord b/w us, she informed me that "it isnt all about you!" (um, last time I checked my paid appt session was all about me!) Then later she said her 'angels had informed her that our time working together was complete and that I should find someone closer to where I live.' This woman is the real deal and in the past did great work. However somewhere along the line her huge ego has gotten in the way, and is seriously clouding and adversely affecting the work. I also think she's way overextended working too many hours and cramming too much in which is not good for a psychic energy healer who needs to maintain healthy balance. I'm an energy healer and channeler of divine energy too, and I mean, really? Using your angelic guides as the heavy, bc I wasnt willing to pay twice for services I had once?! Thats really unethical, unprofessional and it's not the hallmark of a high quality, high integrity lightworker, channeler and energy healer. She used to do good work, but somewhere along the line something got really askew. And she does also randomly walk up to people and start telling them stuff that they may not be wanting to hear. She should respect people's boundaries and not just bombard people with that information- it's like peeping in someone's window and private space: you just dont do that! Respect their personal boundaries and ask first. After all this happened, then one of the other owners became very gruff and almost mean with me. I dont feel comfortable or welcome going to SpiritsChild anymore. I would tread very lightly when going there: what used to be a very light place, seems to have some rather dark elements now!
