Thuro Skate & Snow equips athletes with what they need to shred the elements, whether it be out on the slopes, on the streets, or in the ocean. The shop keeps its well-rounded inventory stocked with a bit of everything, including skateboard decks, surfboards, and ski and snowboarding gear from local manufacturers and well-known brands. No matter the sport, though, Thuro views riders and their safety as its number-one priority; so, products are always thoroughly tested before ever hitting the shelves. When boards or skis do get dinged up, or when equipment needs some nuts and bolts tightened, Thuro's professional staff provides tune-ups and repairs so riders never have to see their gear in a full-body cast.
Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
Brookline Grooming & Pet Supplies provides a fully equipped self-service cleaning zone for hound handlers to scrub four-pawed pals without sullying home bathrooms or kitchen sinks. A self-service dog wash provides guests with all materials needed to de-dirt Rover, from shampoo and water to towels and tail-waxing tools. An arsenal of brushes and combs detangle knotted coats, and high-velocity dryers dry fur more efficiently then forcing your pooch to car surf on the way home. Today's Groupon gets owners 45 minutes of washing time, which is available on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday through Saturday after grooming hours are over (usually around 3 p.m.). No appointment is necessary, but Brookline Grooming recommends that pet owners call ahead to check availability.
