Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Shenada Salon & Spa
Shelby Rivera, the owner and lead stylist at Shenada Salon & Spa, has assembled a team of equally skilled stylists and aestheticians to help fulfill her vision of making aesthetics and beauty treatments into unforgettable experiences. The spa comprises multiple private treatment suites—which prove a peaceful respite from the daily grind—where clients indulge in a nourishing facial or relaxing massage.
The European facial is a nice choice for those seeking a deep cleanse, while the elastin collagen eye mask, with its medley of vitamins, acids, and extracts, wards off puffiness and fine lines. Their Dead Sea salt scrub extends the nourishment—in this case, sea salts and aromatic massage oils that act as exfoliants—to the full body and ends with a massage. However, the staffs' treatments don't stop at facials and massages—Shenada also offers hair treatments and chocolate-honey-based waxing, which is known to attract men in bear costumes.
