Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.
When Seymour and Esther Fischgrund founded Fish Furniture in 1925, the couple personally stained, painted, and housebroke each piece before sending it home with a customer. Today, Fish Furniture operates a bit more efficiently, but with the same attention to detail and quality. In the eight-plus decades since opening, the business has grown from 2 employees to 70. It features a pair of 40,000-square-foot show rooms, inside of which sit upholstery, bedroom sets, and office trimmings bearing solid-wood construction and the names of well-known manufacturers. Outside the show rooms, Fish's staff travels to homes to provide interior-design advice, and its courtesy touchups mend scuffs and scrapes in a more fashionable manner than haphazardly placed band-aids.
Facelogic's 50-minute signature facial (a $49 value) begins with a skin analysis that targets imperfections and determines the best spot to stash any pilfered bags of diamond dust. An exfoliation and steam will open the pores while a deep cleanser intimidates impurities out of them. Next, as you float weightlessly in a zero-gravity chair that brings back memories of floating inside a cosmonaut's womb, a rejuvenating mask (up to a $30 value) will flood your face in a layer of hydration—reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving circulation, and evening out skin tone and complexion. While the face is getting all of the attention, Facelogic's pampering posse will incorporate a complimentary therapeutic massage (lightly covering the hands, arms, shoulders, neck, face, and scalp) into the treatment. Finally, sculpt frizzled face follicles with your choice of a brow wax (up to a $20 value) or lip wax (a $15 value).
