Of all of the dry cleaning companies that I have used over the years, Avalon Dry Cleaners stands out as the best. Not only do the clothes come out looking perfect every time, but their customer service is top-notch too.
In addition to their special promotions and dry cleaning coupons, we have benefitted from their integrity. When Jonathan has left things in his pockets or had a broken button, they took care of it right away, without charge and without complaint.
Everyone there is always ready with a smile and a helping hand – Avalon has a 24-hour drop-off bin, will bring your clothes out to your car when it’s done, and even has a FREE pick-up/delivery service to your home! They will text you when your clothes are ready, have a mobile app to schedule pick up and delivery, and offer same-day service.
There is no place better!

According to a study done by a group called Welcomemat Services, a zip code in Katy was the hottest zip code in the United States during the month of May. Nearly 600 families are reported to have either moved into a home or an apartment in Katy during May.
Costco Wholesale is scheduled to open in Spring 2014 at the corner of I-10 and Grand Parkway, as part of a 14 acre shopping center. It will create more than 200 jobs!
Costco is a membership warehouse club that sells brand-name items wholesale. Its sales exceed $64 billion. Their merchandise spans from designer apparel to fine wine and almost everything in between, including pharmacy and travel services.
Costco also carries its own label called Kirkland Signature. The goal of this label was to “Create an item of the same – or better- quality than the leading brand at a lower price.”
I recently visited my granddaughter in Katy, Texas and had the pleasure, for the third time, to meet young families originally from Norway! What peaked my interest in them was their language, their friendly and lovely children, and their colorful clothing! Each family had a similar story… their employer in Norway transferred them to Katy, Texas! What good fortune for us to have the opportunity to interact with such delightful people and to gain exposure to another culture. My granddaughter had a great time playing with the Norwegian children, who despite the language barrier, would grasp her hand and include her in their games and laughter.
These encounters sparked my curiosity and I discovered that Katy, Texas is home to a branch of the Norwegian company Det Norske Veritas. This company, located at 1400 Ravello Drive, was started in Oslo, Norway in 1867. It has approximately 300 offices in 100 countries. Their 90,000 square foot eco-friendly Katy facility is their North American headquarters. It accommodates more than 270 employees. Det Norske Veritas helps its customers manage risk with software solutions in a variety of industries including energy, healthcare, climate change, food safety, maritime and transportation.
Delicious, fresh and homemade describes the cuisine at Cedars Mediterranean Grill & Market on Mason Road in Katy, Texas. My family and I ate dinner there last month to celebrate my birthday. What a wonderful surprise! We tried the hummus, the falafel pita wrap, the gyro wrap, and the chicken shish kebob plate. My husband said that Cedars’ hummus was the best he had ever eaten. For dessert, the baklava was also wonderful! The owners gave us the dessert complimentary in honor of my birthday. So kind!
