When brothers Joseph and Herb Guiry founded the paint store that bears their name, Denver was still an untamed frontier town, William McKinley was President, and the flag still had 45 stars and not a single cartoon dog. The year was 1899, and, in the hundred-plus years since, the store has remained a family tradition across four generations of shopkeepers. Today, the store’s seven locations carry paints for everything from houses to school projects, and supplement their stock with home decorations including lighting, wallpaper, and furniture.
Ace Hardware's supply-savvy staff leads homeowners through well-stocked shelves, provisioning them with all manner of property-preening products. A fresh can of Ace Paint or Benjamin Moore paint brightens up a sad room or adds the necessary darkness to a nonscary horror closet; to calculate the number of gallons they'll need, shoppers can simply use Ace's helpful paint estimator. Homeowners can illuminate secret projects with a Cooper Lighting halogen work light ($24.99) or mount wall adornments and poltergeist eviction notices using the potpourri of screws cuddled up inside the Walldog decorator kit ($14.99). Embrace outdoor living with Ace's exterior accouterments, which range from grills to outdoor lighting and pest-repelling equipment. Customers with questions need only summon an Ace employee for advice and suggestions, whether they require assistance finding nuts and bolts or adding another basement to the house.
Although RockSalt Spa offers various types of massage including Thai and LeStone, its signature and unique treatment is salt therapy. Also known as halotherapy, salt therapy creates an anti-inflammatory environment that is beneficial to those suffering from allergies and other respiratory problems. During 45-minute sessions in a salt-therapy room, clients simply breathe in the micronized salt air which helps clear out bacteria, excess mucus, and any Legos they may have inhaled as a child. The therapy has been credited for relieving various ailments of the lungs; it may even help treat bronchitis, sinus infections, and ear infections.
