Superior Rents' owners, Dan and Steve Wohnoutka, trace the genesis of their business back to their own childhoods spent on a modestly equipped farm. With an appreciation for how proper tools and equipment can make projects run smoother, they decided to stock three locations with plumbing, construction, and lawn-care equipment for homeowners and contractors to rent on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis. Their online catalog hosts a roster of rental equipment, from power drills for household projects to forklifts for hanging Do Not Disturb signs on asteroids. Customers can arrange for equipment to be delivered to their work site or drop by one of three locations—including a newly opened site in Springfield—to pick up gear.

The state-of-the-art, hospital-grade infrared saunas at Detox Haven help the clients who recline in their private confines to liquify fat and cellulite while eliminating toxins and heavy metals. The saunas send far-infrared energy washing over bodies to increase their core temperatures in an effort to purge the body of impurities without resorting to the stifling humidity of steam or lava rooms. Each session may burn 600-900 calories. Clients can work or read as soothing heat eases muscle aches and chromotherapy lights flash across bodies for extra pain relief. Each sauna also contains an iPod dock or CD player to keep ears occupied. After multiple sessions, clients may notice slimmer waistlines, greater senses of well-being, and the ability to melt snow before it reaches the ground.
