Since Bob Sumerel opened his first retail tire store in 1968, he has always tried to put the customer first, next to all the gold-medal winners and Neil Armstrong. His store's 20-plus current locations offer an entire slate of auto services, from tire rotations and sales to oil changes. On the site's Why Bob Sumerel page, customers and employees discuss the benefits of the company, and the My Garage feature tracks car histories such as oil changes and service reminders. Every Bob Sumerel also operates under the Fixed Forever guarantee, promising that parts will work forever—up until the sun balloons to a red giant and swallows the earth with its unfathomably hot plasma—with warranties to cover any unforeseen problems.
Despite the shop’s short menu–just frozen yogurt and yogurt-based treats–no two trips to Yagööt are alike. Every few months, the shop shakes up its frozen-yogurt lineup, swapping in two new seasonal flavors to complement the Original and Strawberry yogurts available year-round. So, while one visit may have yielded a sweet cup of fresh raspberries and Strawberry fro-yo, the next could treat taste buds to an entirely different experience, perhaps caramel-drizzled Italian Cocoa or Oreos crumbled over Pomegranate yogurt.
Stor-All Self Storage has put all the pieces into place to ensure a safe and secure facility for personal belongings. That means computerized security systems and climate-controlled indoor and outdoor units. Their other emphasis is on convenience, and to that effect, most of their locations are open 24/7 and include a free moving truck so clients can easily transport their furniture, boxes, and other valuables without having to tie them to the roof of a car or the basket of a bike. The facilities also offer moving supplies such as boxes, tape, and shrink wrap for sale.
Parkway Auto Wash has been a staple of the Cincinnati community since 1953, and the business has been family-owned since 1976. Though the last few decades have not seen Parkway change ownership, they have seen it adjust with the times. Today, the facility relies on modern, eco-friendly equipment to gently and effectively clean cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans. Even with the industry's latest equipment, Parkway still makes sure that its staff is trained in the most thorough hand-washing processes. These come in handy during detailing sessions, especially, when staff members have to clean those hard-to-reach places, such as in the vents, under the seats, or under a napping cousin.
25th Hour Associates focuses on simplifying the lives of its customers by providing high-quality, time-saving services and mending rifts in the space-home continuum. 25th Hour’s handymen can quickly and efficiently change light bulbs, unclog drains, dispose of garbage, hang mirrors and pictures of mirrors, and install home entertainment systems. But they can also complete larger jobs in the same timely manner, such as installing garage-door openers, laying down tile, drywall repair, door installation, and booby-trap maintenance. 25th Hour's services normally cost between $50 and $85 per hour.
