A second-generation, family-owned flooring emporium, the Calvetta Brothers' Floor Show extends its expertise in all things trod-able to scrub soiled shag and bathe besmirched berbers throughout northeast Ohio. Ready and able to eliminate grime and stains from your indoor grass, the trained and insured carpet professionals will vacuum the cruddy carpet in question before using a hot-water extraction to exorcise deep-seated soil and restore long-lost toe rings to their rightful owners. Manageable furniture pieces will be carefully moved free of charge, and large items such as wardrobes and dining tables will be charged by the piece, depending on weight and difficultly of the move. A plasma TV, heated driveway, or 65 CCTV cameras might seem like the biggest investment you've made in your home, but carpet is a home's actual opulence. Regular cleanings are necessary to keep it looking new and tasting splendid. Accumulated soil, grit, Lego helmets, pet puky, and butter statues of cows eating sticks of butter can destroy even the hardiest textile floor coverings and allow bacteria to hold barbecues nonstop, so nab today's Groupon and get one step closer to reclaiming control over every inch of your danceable dominion.
Led by dive master Scuba Steve, Buckeye Diving School's professional instructors have certified more than 9,000 divers since 1964—including Ohio celebrities Stefanie Schaeffer and Kenny Crumpton. Students can enroll in an open-water certification sequence to kick-start future careers as oceanic explorers or unsuccessful dunk-tank sitters. An orientation and four three-hour courses impart such fundamentals as buoyancy control, air sharing, and how to control ascents and descents. Each class divvies its time evenly between landlocked lessons and pool dives, and requires pupils bring or purchase their own mask, snorkel, boots, and fins (not included in this Groupon).
Frameworks brings custom aesthetic closure to unframed artwork and peddles already framed photography, lithographs, posters, and more. The prices of custom-framed pieces can fluctuate based on specific customer requests, but a 16”x20” framed double matt with glass or mounted poster or print generally costs around $45. The same treatment can be applied to 24”x36” prints ($59) and 32”x40” Ghostbusters II posters ($75). For former athletes looking to commemorate a career or owners of an untrammeled Michael Jordan jersey, Frameworks can lock a jersey away in a double-matted 32”x40” frame ($125; frames available in larger sizes). This Groupon is also good for pre-framed pieces on Frameworks’ website, so be sure to browse its collection before making any set-in-wood commitments.
One of the East Coast's best-known members-only wholesale retailers, BJ's Wholesale Club serves more than six million members in 201 clubs as far west as Ohio. Within these sprawling locations, savvy shoppers knock out most of their errands in a single stop. In the same visit, members can stock up on economy-sized groceries–including USDA choice meats, farm-fresh produce, and everyday essentials–grab name-brand electronics, get their vision checked at BJ's Optical, and even plan a vacation through BJ's Travel. Each service makes up a single part of the club's well-rounded retail experience, but simplifying shopping isn't BJ's Wholesale Club's only goal; in 2012 alone, the company donated more than $3.2 million to charitable organizations.
