Downtown Gardner Comments
City of Gardner Business Reviews Audio Reenactment

Jim says: “The downtown Gardner area is a wonderful place to shop for children. You have the Velvet goose and you have Lakins Clothing for children in downtown Gardner.”

Regarding Last Minute Gifts and Flowers, Katie says: “I cannot begin to express fully how impressed we have been with last minute gifts and flowers. We have a big church family and use them almost daily if not weekly to deliver flowers. Kelly and Paul are so friendly and make the most beautiful arrangements. Hand written cards are the most personable part. We recommend this florist and gift shop for any and ALL occasions. Best of the best! Editor’s Note: This store had 174 5 Star reviews on Google and average is 5 stars! Wow!

Kristina says: “I love the diversity in its shops! There are store fronts there that I never would have thought to be“.

Jim says: “Happy trails has all the stuff Gnc has and better cuz it’s all natural , if you want to be healthy and get natural drinks and supplements , go to happy trails and tell em jim sent you , thanks !!!!!“.

Thomas says: “I stayed in Gardner for 6mos on a job, and wasted a lot of time at other breakfast joints in the area. Found Blue Moon Diner two weeks before the job’s end, and ate @ BMD every day until I left. This is a super cozy, traditional train car style diner. The food here is real tasty greasy spoon, with home made corned beef hash you can’t go wrong. The owner Jamie often helms the grill and greets every customer with a smile AND remembers your name. Personal Jukeboxes are inside every train car booth and you can pick 2 songs for a quarter. This is truly THE best breakfast spot for miles!”

regarding Lakin’s Bridget says:What an amazing selection of children’s clothing. My fiance and I went in real quick today looking for a flower girl dress and ring bearer outfit. There were so many great options for extremely reasonable prices. The owner, Phyllis, was so attentive and knew so much about everything she was selling. She showed us so many great options that we didn’t even know we wanted. To be honest, I dreaded shopping for children’s wedding clothes. But she made it so quick and painless! I spent significantly less than I was expecting to and we walked out of there with clothes much better than anything else we had looked at! We can’t wait to come back and buy more cute outfits!

regarding O’Neil’s Bicycle Shop Ryan says, “My mom bought a bike here a little more than 20 years ago, it only broke less than 3 years ago but it was stored outside most of the time so if it was stored correctly it could have lasted longer. If you want a bike that will out live you this is the place to go.”

About Gardner Game Knights, Michael says,”Great game store! A good selection of different card games and board games! If you are looking for something they don’t carry they are happy to order it! Friendly staff and a great environment to sit down with friends or show up and meet new people to game with!

Danielle says about Studio 4 Potters and Gallery; “Stopped in for a couple of handmade mugs and I was not disappointed. They have a large variety of pieces from different potters. Everything is beautiful and reasonably priced.”

Dani says: “The library is a great place! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, they can find any book you need from neighboring libraries, and they even loan out passes to museums.”

Denise says: “The flowers and decorations always look great!

Rebecca says: Terrapin Traders is honestly my favorite store in the entire world. Lizzy really takes the time to get to know her customers to the point where she reached out and checked in on me to make sure I was okay when I hadn’t stopped by in a while.”

C Dav says: “I love Taco Rey! I used to go there frequently when I lived right down the street, but haven’t had many opportunities since I moved. I had the pleasure of going there for dinner tonight! Tacos were seasoned to perfection, tortillas were perfect, and it wasn’t overly greasy like some taco places. Rice and beans were also fantastic! It’s great to see that this family owned business still maintains a high quality despite the pandemic. I’ve gone to several other Mexican restaurants since my last visit, and none of them can compete with Taco Rey in my opinion. I highly recommend this place to anyone! It’s my go to spot for sure

Matthew says.I cannot recommend Tanguay Jewelers enough. Seth worked with me to make an unbelievable, one of a kind engagement ring which turned out better than I could have hoped. If you have any jewelry needs at all this is the place to go.”

regarding Surroundings Gallery Kent says,”I brought a valuable water color painting to Surroundings to be remounted to the original matting. The painting had come completely loose from its mat. Chuck quoted me a price that, quite frankly shocked me it was so reasonable. I received the quote in writing and left the painting. The next day Chuck’s wife Vicki called to say that the painting was all set. When I arrived at the gallery the painting was not only perfectly remounted to it’s mat, Chuck explained that once he got into the job he determined that a second mat was necessary to properly mount the painting. This second mat was not visible. I told Chuck I was willing to pay more for his added work, but he wouldn’t hear of it. Chuck is not only an expert framer and excellent businessman, he is an artist who brings passion as well as competence to his work. Although I have only had one piece of art worked on by Surroundings I offer my highest recommendation and future business.

Regarding Bruce’s Watch and Jewelry, Jean says, “The man was very pleasant…my mom was very pleased that he was able to help her fix her watch….
Thank you so much you made her day….”

Michael says: “Gardner has a vibrant downtown with nice shops like Priscilla’s Candy, The Velvet Goose, and my favorite Terrapin Traders. As well as a great dog park that Winnie loves.”

Lori says:I am so HAPPY finally plants added. Makes a downtown appealing. Hopefully this will continue! Curb appeal…can’t go wrong. “

Anthony says:Lots of open land to take a walk. Nice website by the way.

Samantha says:My kids love it when they start putting the lights up for the holidays.”

Another Jim says:Parker house of pizza. More like POWER HOUSE OF PIZZA! Food is always awesome. Reno and Krissi always keep that place up to date. Delivery drivers fast and polite! I recommended this place to everyone !

Ed says: “We love the hen house. Its our Go To place. If you want to go where the locals go, this is it. Good food. Great prices. Expect to wait at peak times.”

Michael says:Definite must. Priscilla’s has been a staple in Gardner for such a long time. Family run, excellent chocolate and treats. They even ship chocolate with ice packs if required.
Visit Everytime I’m in Gardner?!

Regarding Stasukelis Bob says:Absolutely wonderful service. The two gentlemen who delivered my new dryer couldn’t have been nicer or more efficient. Stausukelis Appliance has been around for years and always has been known for their customer service. I feel great that I bought from a local business and will continue to do so. Their price was very competitive with the big box stores with the added bonus of great service!

regarding White Dog Printing, FAA says, “John, Mandy, and Yvette over at White Dog are always excellent! Whenever I send over the orders for our business I am confident that they will get done quickly and be of high quality. Mandy does a great job preparing items for print, Yvette always communicates promptly, and John is a truly hands-on owner. I only had one issue EVER, and it was my fault for not sending the correct format. John and Yvette stayed an hour after closing printing the correct version so that I could pick it up and have it ready when I needed it! Fantastic local service. We will continue to use White Dog for all of our printing needs, and we encourage you to do the same!

Regarding Gardner Travel, Eliza says:Taylor is just wonderful! She’s a pleasure to work with. She really listens and finds just what you are looking for! The office is always clean, neat and tidy. We will definitely do business with this agency again.”

About Sharp Image Screen Printing, Michael says,”Sharp Image has been a supplier of shirts, sweatshirts, coats, aprons and awards for organizations that I have worked with and for. The quality of the workmanship is undeniably THE BEST. I often refer people to Sharp Image because I am confident in their work. Thanks Sharp Image for your incredible focus on detail and quality!!!”

Pam says: “Gardner Ale House, Taco Del Rey and Kenny’s are great options for delicious food in downtown Gardner. John’s Sport Shop is a fabulous place to shop for sports apparel and sports-related gift ideas. Happy Trails is a huge plus to those who want to follow a healthier lifestyle.”

Deborah says: “Crime is way down since when I was a kid.”

Dan says:The Ale House Dip was amazingly good. The hand cut french fries were plentiful, crispy and delicious. Staff was pleasant and attentive. Will definitely be going back to sample more of the menu.”

Sarah says:Best place in town. We go to John’s for all our needs. Great people.

regarding Priscilla’s, Christopher says:This place is a little gem, but not so little! They pack a huge variety of candy, treats and gifts from chocolates, hard candies, mints and even some hard to find old fashioned candy. A side room features their kitchen where the elves were busy making home made candy canes this day but sometimes the smell of chocolate is dizzying! The canes were the reason we discovered this store! We got Maple, Vanilla, Molasses, and Peppermint. While we were there we picked up some cream filled home made chocolates and caramel. Trust me your will enjoy your visit!

Dawn says:I have ALWAYS had an exceptional experience with all of the staff at Chair City Pharmacy including the drivers!! If anyone is looking for a new, competent, friendly, and professional pharmacy and staff I highly recommend checking out Chair City Pharmacy. I can’t imagine how anyone would not be 100% satisfied!

Gardner Big Chair

About Ideal Dog Fences, Minoj says,”We had really great experience with Ideal Dog Fences from the very first time I made contact. Brian, the owner, returned my call immediately and explained the entire process of fence installation. Brian quoted us a good price and he was also flexible in terms of scheduling. He did not rush us to install the fence. Instead he suggested that we wait until the puppy turns 3 months. The installation was performed by Corey, who was very professional and resourceful. We worked together to figure out the best way to run the wires to the garage since the most logical path was blocked by a paver path. Corey showed us how to train our puppy to stay within the fence. In addition Brian immediately called me back to provide additional guidance when we reached out to him. Brian also registered the product warranty with the Dog Guard company saving me the hassle. I am also told that we will get periodic reminders for the battery replacement, which is convenient too. All in all, i would recommend ideal dog fence company to anyone looking for a professional and hassle free experience installing a dog fence for safety of their dog(s).”

About Dow Shoe Store, SEL says, “Recently purchased a pair of hiking boots and they are heavenly to hike in! Nicole took the time to listen to the type of trails I hike and made a recommendation. She also ensured proper sizing (always have a problem with my left foot) and the boots fit comfortably.

They’ll never try to upsell you something you don’t need. They’re the best!

Regarding National Lumber, Mary says,” I had the best experience in your store yesterday. I found your staff to be very helpful and knowledgeable.

We used it today for my 170 lb mastiff (who does not fit well in my bathrooms) The ramp into the tub, the tables and equipment are solid and well built (because of her size this is sometimes an issue at grooming spots) The space is also very clean and well equipped. We even found a collar that actually fit. We always shop at Tractor Supply for animal food but this is an extra nice store and they also have a propane fill up. (Another perk!)”

Regarding Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Florence says,” I had an admirable experience at the Gardner Enterprise. Deion was very pleasant, detailed and thorough in ensuring that I receive excellent service.
