I had no idea when I wrote that question that so many would have opinions on North County business staples.
On Wednesday I asked Facebook fans and Twitter followers which Hazelwood and North County businesses they couldn't live without and there were quite a few opinions.
Michele Schindler-Bauer said she can't live without Cose Dolce bakery in Ferguson. "Best. Chocolate. Cupcakes. Ever," she said.
Schindler-Bauer also noted Ferguson Brewing Company, de.lish Cheesecake Bakery and Cafe in Florissant, and Hair Express in Hazelwood.
"Kathy Cafazza is the greatest hair stylist," she said.
Laurie Tenshler said her mainstay is Quick Tan on Howdershell Road.
"(I) love them all so much," she said. "Great customer service."
Tenshler also said Angelo's Pizza off Parker and Old Halls Ferry Roads is a staple for her entire family.
"(The) pizza is so good," she said. "We grew up eating it and so did my mom and dad. Its heaven in your mouth!"
Chris Wall is all about the local produce.
"We appreciate Goeke's Produce in Florissant," he said. "Good variety, great prices and fresh food."
Anita Zeier Berck touted Salon 67 in Florissant and its customer service.
