Omars Exotic Birds at 23507 El Toro Rd is a wonderful place to visit and see all the Parrots and other exotic birds. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. Tired of wandering the isles at Home Depot in search of someone? Try Crown Ace Hardware at 21791 Lake Forest Drive. Knowledgeable and friendly staff and a good selection of products. You may pay a little more compared to the discount stores, but you'll get attention and the right product, which can save you money in the long run.
