The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service oil-change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube’s savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians’ quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with Saran wrap.

On more than 100 acres of land, Amherst Nurseries grows a vast forest of trees and shrubs, helping to make customers' green thumbs even greener. The retail store boasts a friendly staff that helps customers select the right plants for their yards. Maples, ashes, honey locusts, and other shade trees provide homes for birds' nests and dolls' treehouses ($330 for a 15- to 20-ft. tree), and the colorful foliage of plums, cherries, crab apples, and other flowering trees gives yards an instant makeover in preparation for tree prom season ($260 for a 10- to 15-ft. tree). On the farm, Amherst's tree tenders minimize pesticide use and partner with UMass researchers to test new soil-conservation technologies. Each seedling is raised on sunlight, fresh air, and occasional discipline, growing into a sturdy young tree that showcases a one-year guarantee and an excellent moral compass.
The nonprofit organization ETTA Art Studio splashes the Amherst community with artistic spirit flowing from the brain brushes of its experienced local artists and teachers. The master masterpiece makers pass on their creative tutelage via classes that cover clay working, drawing, puppet making, theater, and other artful subjects. On July 25–29, kids can swing by the studio for Fantastic Fairylands (ages 5–11) or Giant Puppetmaking, Improv + Movement (ages 8–12). And August 1–5, Collage, Diorama, and Painting (for ages 8–10) empowers pupils with the ability to construct fan mail for Vincent van Gogh.
