Founded in 1857, Zengeler Cleaners thoroughly and carefully spruces up a wide variety of fabrics, garments, drapes, and more. Every woven wearable undergoes a 14-point inspection and receives free minor repairs. Degrime a favorite pair of slacks ($8.35) or slacks' favorite blouse ($7.55), or launder a two-piece suit ($16.70) in time to wear it to a black-tie dinner, a rival high school's prom, or a climactic showdown inside a volcano. Zengeler Cleaners' washing wizards shun PERC solvents, employing filtered, crystal-clear formulas to remove stains, spots, and miniature black holes.
Arming Windy City's flower followers with a bevy of buxom blossoms since 1889, Amling's Flowers brightens occasions across the spectrum with its fresh floral arrangements. Built from the fruits of partnerships with independent petal peddlers, Amling's artistic arrangements help express emotions fit for a range of occasions, from birthdays to funerals to the first of many joyous parking citations. Lilacs soothe schnozes and seers with a sense-pleasing blend of lavender roses and fragrant hydrangea ($39.95), while the Cotton Candy's bursts of roses, carnations, and chrysanthemums issue forth with pastel explosions not seen since Gregor Mendel cross-bred hyacinths with a stick of dynamite ($34.95+).
Skokie Valley Laundry and Dry Cleaners breathes neat new life into grubby threads using eco-friendly methods. Changing solvents with each load to preserve efficacy, the outlet's skilled launderers can remove pesky mayo splotches from shirts ($2.20) or poorly executed ketchup self-portraits from bed sheets, tablecloths, and other flatwork ($16.75 for the first 5 pounds, $2.30/lb. thereafter). Skokie Valley's dry-cleaning service forgoes the widely used but potentially hazardous chemical perc, relying instead on safer and greener substances to waterlessly wash shirts ($7.95–$8.50), blazers ($7.95), full suits ($14.50), and more. With the cleaner's convenient pickup and delivery service, customers needn't be home for clothes to be picked up or dropped off.
GNC sells a wide variety of supplements (vitamin and mineral and herbal) and other health products (sports nutrition, diet, energy, body care, and more). You're sure to find something right for you, such as Ginkgo biloba capsules or that box of SuperFoods Supreme you wish for every Groundhog Day.
