LocalPrice is coming to Texas

We are happy to announce that LocalPrice has just begun our initial rollout to other top US cities.   Though we expect this to be a long process we are excited to being the journey.  We will start by focusing a few of our most popular categories like home security.  We are concentrating on the top couple dozen cities in the US.

We’ve made good progress on offering our Texas users a wide initial selection of home security providers in the top cities like Austin, where at at last count, we listed 6 Austin home security providers.  We compare 9 Houston home security system companies, 7 Dallas security system providers and 5 San Antonio home security companies.

A Night Out in Atlanta

Night out in Atlanta

You’ve saved money, gotten the babysitter, made reservations for one of Atlanta’s premier restaurants and booked a room in one of the elegant hotels. The only thing that can make it an even more spectacular evening is to hire one of the Atlanta limos that you can review on localprice.com. So, now that your form of transportation around town is decided, where do you want your Atlanta limousine driver to take you?

Fortunately, Atlanta has something for everyone, regardless of your interest. Take a ride to Underground Atlanta where you will feel as though you have stepped back in time with its streetlights, cobblestone walkways, park benches and unique shops and eateries. Of course, Underground isn’t enough then come back to street level and have your chauffeur take you to Atlanta’s newest shopping scene – Atlantic Station which is comprised of over 100 national retailers, dozen of restaurants (both fine dining and casual cafés), a theater, and much more. Additional Atlanta shopping hot spots are Phipps plaza, the Mall of Georgia, Lenox Square & Discovery Mall.

If your idea of a night out in Atlanta, does not involve shopping, there are plenty of other activities to explore. For instance, reserve your seats at one of Atlanta’s performing art locations. A special favorite is magnificent fox Theater. Located downtown on Peachtree Street, The Fox was originally built in the 1920’s as the Yaarab Temple Shrine mosque. It opened at the beginning of the Depression but had to close its doors after just 125 weeks, It later prospered as movie house from the 1940s to the ‘60s. After that, it was allowed to run down almost to the point of being demolished. However in the late ‘80s a group of citizens decided to bring back its glory days through restoration and refurbishing. Today, one can sit under its domed ceiling and listen to a variety of musical performances or watch Broadway plays, ballets and other inspiring artists. For more cultural art, have your Atlanta limo take you to the High Museum of Art, the Ballethnic Dance Company (East Point), Georgia Tech’s Ferst Center for the Arts, the King Plow Art center, the Atlanta Ballet or the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

If you want to sit back and enjoy the ride, ask your Atlanta limo driver to take you on a tour of beautiful and bustling downtown Atlanta. You will see lofty hotels like the Westin Peachtree Plaza with its 73 floors and rotating restaurant at the top, the Olympic Rings Fountain and water gardens at the Centennial Olympic Park, historic homes and renown locations, and towering buildings like the CNN Center or the World of Coca-cola that light up the night sky as well as many other great locations.

A night out in Atlanta is a wonderful reason to book an Atlanta limo service. You will be able to enjoy the sights and sounds without needing to concern yourself with the driving. So make your plans, reserve a limo, and get ready to experience Atlanta – you will be glad you did!

Looking Better in Atlanta

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to visit Six Flags over Georgia and ride the roller coasters or water attractions without being concerned about losing your glasses or getting dirty water on your contacts? Perhaps, you would love to spend an evening at the Fox Theatre and see (unassisted) the phenomenal performance on stage? Or maybe, you would like to Jet Ski on Lane Lanier and not have to wear goggles to protect your contacts or glasses? Whatever it is that brings you pleasure, enjoying the activity without glasses or contacts would make the experience even better. You have heard about corrective eye surgery, but are not sure exactly what is involved. To help you decide if you would like to speak to an Atlanta LASIK surgeon, here are some pros and cons of LASIK.

Advantages:
• Great range of refractive correction
• Stable vision
• No noteworthy decrease in structural strength of the eye
• Rapid recovery of visual perception
• Little or no pre-operation procedures like those required for LASEK or PRK
• Option of having both eyes treated at the same time

Potential Disadvantages:
• Infection (this only occurs in 1 out of 1,000)
• There is a very small chance of over or under correction which can mean continuing to wear glasses /contacts or the need for more surgery.
• Difficulty with eye coordination
• Blurred night vision
• Cost

If the advantages and disadvantages listed here are enough to persuade you that LASIK is what you desire, then here are some additional criteria you should be aware of, when you talk to your doctor about LASIK:

• According to the FDA you must be at least 18 years old; however, sometimes one will need to be over 21 due to the nature of the procedure.
• Must have a stable refractive prescription
• Cannot have any significant eye diseases
• Do not have any systematic conditions like lupus, scleroderma, dermatomyositis, or severe rheumatoid arthritis.
• In addition, LASIK is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women.

Looking better in Atlanta is just a few appointments away. You can soon join the thousands of Americans who have been able to pack up their glasses/contacts and see the world through new eyes. So make your appointment with an Atlanta LASIK surgeon today. You can find helpful information on Atlanta area LASIK surgeons on LocalPrice.com.

Welcome to Local Price

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Welcome to the Local Price blog. This blog is a supplement to our site that will bring you Website updates as well as tips on how to get more for your money. The LocalPrice.com concept was created by Rob Shields after he learned from first hand experience that it was very difficult to compare prices and services offered by local companies. If one was looking for an Atlanta home security system they had to search the Internet for various companies and then try to compare the costs and features. This was time consuming and still didn’t guarantee that the best service providers and features were listed.

Local Price currently offers information for popular categories including Atlanta limousines, Atlanta locksmiths, and Atlanta junk removal, as well as other categories of interest to metro Atlantans. The list of categories is expanding rapidly and will provide many more categories in the coming months. If you don’t live in Atlanta don’t worry because Local Price will soon be expanding beyond Georgia to other major metropolitan areas in the U.S.

Atlanta businesses that want to increase their Internet exposure should list their services on Local Price. The listing is free as long as the business provides accurate and complete pricing and service information. To list your business online simply fill out the form to get started.

We hope this blog and Website provide you with valuable information that will make your life a little bit easier and save you some money along the way. Please leave a comment or two and let us know what you would like to see on LocalPrice.com. We are a new startup company and look forward to working with you to create something great.
