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.

Spa of Argos
Spa of Argos makes the thousands of miles between Illinois and Greece feel a little less far. Inspired by the organic spa treatments of Argos, Greece, the spa commits to using only 100% vegan, organic, and cruelty-free products during its nourishing and rejuvenating spa treatments. The goal is nothing short of making clients look and feel like goddesses. Take, for instance, Aphrodite's age-less facial, a rapid repair facial with all natural ingredients that aims to minimize fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs that you've been traveling by US mail. Massages, waxing, and vitamin C therapy treatments also do well also to repair the skin and raise the spirits.
