If I could do it all over again, I would live in the same house that I live there now. I have met so many friends that I still keep til this day. I have lived in this house for more than a decade. I love the neighborhood and wouldn't change it for the world. Everything is convenient. The ranking of the neighborhood I live in would be still ranked in the top 50 percent of the world. Home is where the heart is. You make the decisions to make sure that the environment that you live in is your own. In the future, I see great thing for my community everything is nearby we lack nothing in the area if we are in need for something.
The Jcpenney Optical at Meyerland Plaza offers great customer service. Upon entry, you are greeted warmly and treated sincerely. The associates, although few, strive to satisfy your needs as efficiently and effectively as possible. Their kindness is genuine, and they also assist in helping you select a pair of glasses, provide detailed explanations on the maintenance of contact lenses, and their opinions are always thoughtful with the customers in their best interest.
