Every day at more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves that good nutrition can be both convenient and delicious. Since the beginning, the company has based its philosophy on choosing whole fruits and all-natural ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats, and it makes additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.

Customers can kick-start their morning with a steaming bowl of slow-cooked, steel-cut oatmeal, or stay energized throughout the day with six varieties of Energy Bowls: nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soymilk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits.

The nods to music at most thrift stores come in the form of previously owned band T-shirts and old records. But A to Zen Gifts & Thrift isn't most thrift stores. While the shop does carry a rotating assortment of recorded music and a possible surplus of Spinal Tap T-shirts, it treats its customers to something they usually only find at a music venue: live music. Each Friday night, the store transforms into an open-mic hotspot, welcoming local singer-songwriters to a stage flanked by floral couches and vintage Ringling Bros. posters. As the musicians set the soundtrack, shoppers can peruse the racks and shelves for such treasures as plaid overcoats, tie-dyed dresses, yin-yang end tables, and porcelain dolls. The shop also stocks custom furniture and myriad books to remind folks of a simpler time when we didn't have book chips installed in our brains.
