Their 40,000 square foot Denver showroom displays a collection of furnishings from more than 20 different vendors, and their in-house transportation company can deliver specific pieces in less than a week. Customers can also benefit from in-house financing, or place their desired items on free lay-a-way, giving them ample time to convince their old couch that they've grown apart over the years.

In true family style, brothers Nick and Kirby Kuklenski own and operate two “sister” Ace Hardware stores in Colorado Springs, keeping local homes beautiful with name-brand products and services. Lawns grow thick and colorful with Scotts fertilizers, plants, and seeds from the shops’ lawn departments, whereas computerized color matching in the paint aisles keeps outsides as vibrantly hued as flowers in a garden or a house fly strolling across an artist’s palette. Collections of DeWalt and Craftsman hand and power tools help homeowners assemble Weber grills, with staffers standing at the ready to build any piece bought at the store. Even autos can get in on Ace Hardware’s helpful services: keys are cut onsite, with Sidewinder keys including built-in chips that interact with car computers to ensure proper starts without feeding vehicles buckets of floppy disks.
When Hyacinth's Boutique and Spa threw open its doors in May of 2012, it didn't expect any housewarming presents. Instead, the spa doled out gifts in the form of relaxing services and fashionable accessories. Hyacinth's therapists and aestheticians perform soothing and therapeutic massages as well as Egyptian sugaring treatments, the same hair removal method Cleopatra used on her pet asps.
Lawn Doctor’s savvy yard magicians rejuvenate hapless grounds, conjure up spells for increased grass growth, and banish nutrition-sapping weeds. Famished foliage is sated with the help of beneficent Turf Tamer equipment that doles out nourishing fertilizer to every inch of greenery. Grass is then meticulously fortified against intruders with an herbicide which, when applied, causes dandelions, crabgrass, and yard yetis to disappear with a cackle into a cloud of smoke. Broadleaf weed control kills existing weeds, and preemergent weed control makes new weeds think twice about setting their roots down in treated territory. Natural fertilizers are also available for the eco-conscious.
