  1. I’ve been getting my hair done at Omar’s on James St. for a long time now! He’s a great guy and very skilled at what he does.

    He’s at 2717 James St., right in the heart of Eastwood.

  2. One reason I love to live in Eastwood is because of The Stafford (on the corner of Stafford & Sunnycrest). I always go there for the good selection of beers (sold at pretty low prices), and to get a bottle of water when I am walking my dog. Jim and the rest of the “staff” are friendly people and also live in the neighborhood. They definitely are a “convenience” store!

  3. Another excellent resource for those of us without washers/dryers is the Classic City laundromat near the corner of Hillsdale and James St (across from Ashdale). Always friendly service, personal, and the place is always spotless. And, if you are doing laundry when the ladies are working, you can pretty much guarantee that you can step out for a few moments to run errands without fearing your things being stolen.

  4. Chris, you’re not kidding about the beer! We were pleasantly surprised to once find a lambic style Belgian beer in the Stafford, a beer for tasting instead of just slugging. And yes, you can definitely tell the difference between a locally-owned store and one that’s part of a corporate empire. The local folks obviously care about their customers.

  5. Nice Information on this page. I am a muralist looking for Information and old photos for possible mural in Eastwood. Example, the photo on the top of the page. Would you contact me via email ?

    Thanks tony
