While adding miles to his personal odometer, Runner's Gate owner Phil Hoffland has sprinted down the streets of Boston and through the mountains of Honolulu. As a long-distance runner, he's competed in road races and marathons such as the Twin Cities Marathon, the Madison Ironman, the Boston Marathon, the Naples Daily News Half Marathon, the Disney Marathon, and the Honolulu Marathon.

At his shop in Lakeville, Hoffland uses his experience and expertise to outfit runners with the shoes that will keep them safely pounding the pavement.

Sometimes you love a garment so much you have to set it free. The open armed and stylish folks at Turn Style Consignment Stores know a gently used gem when they see one, and faithfully find a new home for them via 14 stores in the Twin City area and via the 5 stores in the Phoenix Valley. They consign second-hand garments, accessories, and home furnishings from casual sellers and convincing bridge trolls before lining their racks and shelves with the items. Many of their shoes and handbags hail from designer brands such as Gucci and Chanel, and their policy prohibits anything that's not from a designer, better department, or specialty story.
Gander Mountain Academy's simulators render virtual targets at varying distances and with real-world precision, including accurate bullet holes. The simulators' technology delivers an array of training benefits, such as making the experience less intimidating for novices and letting advanced students choose more sophisticated target scenarios. Gander Mountain's ownership developed this training technology upon recognizing that with over 130 stores, it was among the nation's largest retailer of firearms. This led to Gander Mountain Academy, a place where technology meets elite-training resources previously available only to the military and law enforcement.
It's easy to get lost in the moment on Nelson's Apple Farm. Guests can wander through the golden-tinged foliage and breath in the autumnal air while exploring the various fall festivities. Children traipse through the five acres of wildlife preserve, or peer at many different animals in the farm yard, feeding goats from their palms or watching ducks play inspired hockey on the pond. They can pick their own pumpkins and choose from more than 20 different apple varieties from a 20-acre plot of apple trees, and, come winter, guests can track down their perfect Christmas tree from the 12 acres of growing evergreens. On the weekends, customers can also opt for wagon rides around the acreage.
