With an empire stretching across 100 stores in 24 states, Nutrishop fuels bodies all over the country with scientifically formulated supplements, vitamins, and optimizers. Tasty Clif Bars and nutrient-filled protein concoctions rebuild muscles after workouts, and weight-loss formulas from Lipocor or Thyrostim even out erratic metabolisms. Teams of certified sports nutritionists staff each store, ready to guide patrons through the shelves of Muscle Milk and fruit extracts or demonstrate which pills help to detoxify livers, target hard-to-slim midsections, or activate latent mutant abilities.
Whether you're meeting someone's gaze from across the room, making eye contact for the first time with an interviewer, or window shopping for souls, the eyes are at the center of it all. Haute Lash and Boutique's aestheticians specialize in making sure those moments go off without a hitch. They meticulously extend lashes one strand at a time, and they tint and even perm natural lashes and eyebrows to your exact shape and color specs. The aestheticians keep some tricks up their sleeve for the rest of the face as well. Air brushing services even out skin tone, accentuate faces with bold streaks of color, or get clients ready for a girls' night out. While they're waiting, guests can add a little sartorial flare to the mix with the boutique's selection of carefully curated clothes and accessories.

Yakety Yak Wireless, a cellular repair and used phone store, is the culmination of its owner’s 20 years of expertise working for Microsoft. The bright, modern shop hosts trained technicians who perform onsite repairs for mobile devices, including mending damaged trackballs for BlackBerrys and repairing the cracked screens of Apple and Motorola mobile devices. Display tables showcase an array of accessories and gently-used phones from national carriers, which customers can buy and sell, or give to the store’s green program that safely handles and recycles old devices to keep them out of landfills or the mouths of grazing billy goats.
True Beauty at Salon 7 customizes its many beauty services to suit the needs of each visitor.

Indoor Safari Park embodies childhood dreams of the Serengeti with a varicolored landscape of tropical murals, plush jungle creatures, and both educational and entertaining activities. Cerebral toys teach little tykes the basics of numbers and colors, and wooden train sets review the basic origins of interstate commerce. Around the facility, mechanical elephants and zebras trot through a safe indoor jungle beneath giggling children and a kid-size, primary-colored train chugs to life around a palm-flanked track. On an obstacle-flecked mini-golf course, prehistoric creatures guard the borders of each pin and avoid the ball pits that colorfully resemble the meteorites of their ancestors' demise. Age limits become obsolete with a specific play area for toddlers, and a huge retail area generously yields gift ideas to stumped shoppers.
A kaleidoscope of colors and patterns bewilders shoppers as they enter either of Quilter’s Stash's two locations. Some confused patrons report having found the end of the rainbow, but they are really seeing more than 15,000 bolts of 100% cotton fabrics by Marcus, Henry Glass, and other top designers. Staff members wait at attention to direct customers to the latest threads and patterns, and a few on-hand wizards can resuscitate a range of sewing machines from different brands. The crafty gurus are also enthusiastic about leading quilting and sewing classes that cater to students of all levels, and the shop's shelves are stocked with how-to books that facilitate at-home learning.
