Crowned Best Dry Cleaners by Grand Rapids Magazine, Sheldon Cleaners has been fighting the good fight against dud dirt and unpressed pants for more than 60 years. Its seasoned de-griming doctors will scrutinize each article and carefully tend to sweaters ($6.50), coats ($12.50), dresses ($12.50), and shirts ($4.99)—evicting fiber filth, obnoxious odors, and the stains of spilt wine and spilt blood from a rival poet. By using nonhazardous solutions, Sheldon Cleaners provides a thorough clothing cleanse and scores points with Mother Nature for its eco-friendly practices.
Shaggy Pines Dog Park accommodates cordial canines and their furless human counterparts with 20 acres of leash-free playing areas. Located in Cascade Township, the fenced park encloses such attractions as a manmade swimming pond, a large sand pile for digging and climbing, and a private playpen for small dogs and Anne Geddes models dressed as small dogs. A one-mile, illuminated jogging trail helps owners get ready for upcoming marathons and pups bulk up before auditioning for a remake of White Fang. Gold memberships grant fidos unlimited access to the park from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the year, and they also enjoy discounts on dog washes, coffee, and obedience classes.

Honoring the business's namesake, Brandon has brought the company into modern times, exclusively snapping digital images of digital images. With a style that combines the raw emotion of photojournalism with the allure of fashion photography, he shoots posed and traditional photos at weddings and portrait sessions before focusing on candid, natural moments. Brandon harnesses natural light at every on-location appointment, while inside his studio he works with professional lighting and each client receives full hair and makeup treatments. After shoots, clients choose their favorite poses to preserve with one of Modern Photographics’ extensive print options.
The photo strips produced by Happy Days Photography's open-air photo booths have a classic look—they're 4”x6”, each one contains up to five images, and they often depict people posing with wacky props. But there's one drastic difference that sets these booths apart: each shot is snapped by a creative photographer rather than by an automated machine. Those photographers also capture images outside the booths, preserving memories of events from multiple perspectives. Clients can also opt for traditional photo shoots in scenic locations such as Fallasburg Park.
