My son and I are moving to Plano from MA next week!

Looking for highly recommended resources in the Plano area (Custer Rd in the 6000's). I value trustworthiness, prices that are relatively inexpensive (perhaps cheaper than average, but not dirt cheap - not looking to pay an unfair wage!), and short driving distances.

My list below grew quite long, so the above criteria do not apply to all list items!

- local recruiting firms/websites for high end Human Resources jobs
- hair stylist (need regular cut/color)
- babysitter - high school or older
- auto place for regular maintenance
- places to buy discount designer clothes
- place to buy 2nd-hand top quality kids clothes (my son is 7)
- a mall that is not super upscale and has with lots of variety
- a stable for riding lessons
- a place for guitar lessons (not in someone's home - either at a music center or a male who can come to my home)
- dating service or dating 'coach'
- pediatrician
- primary care physician (someone knowledgable about menopause!)
- child psychologist
- psychoanalyst
- someone to clean my apartment
- computer diagnostics/repair

- parks - can someone explain the various parks in Plano - their locations, what they contain and what age groups they cater to? Any cool kid and/or family events occurring in Plano or surrounding areas in August?

Thanks in advance!!

I like the Driver's Edge on Coit just south of Legacy for the basics. Their waiting room is cramped, but they remember my name and cars after just two visits.

- places to buy discount designer clothes
There are a number of consignment shops in Plano. My wife frequents the Consigning Women on Coit.

- place to buy 2nd-hand top quality kids clothes (my son is 7)
Right next door is Calico Kids, they have a good return policy.

- a mall that is not super upscale and has with lots of variety
I'd have to recommend Stonebriar in Frisco over the Shops at Willow Bend.

The city has a number of recreaction centers across Plano. The closest to you would be Carpenter on Coit or Jack Carter off Independance. Carpenter is more a fitness center, offering basketball, bikes, stairclimbers, elipicals, free weight and the like. Carter has a very nice pool. Fees are $2 per person per visit for non-member, we paid about $350 for the year for a family of 6.

Plano also offers a number of smaller parks with playgrounds and interconnected bike/jogging trails. See attached image.
