Founded in 1935 as a high-end dairy manufacturer, Farm Stores accommodates time-efficient shoppers with its unique drive-through grocery-ordering system. Pull up a car or rocket-powered shopping cart at one of the 22 locations and inform a friendly staff member of grocery needs, then relax as he quickly retrieves it from the thousands of items in inventory. Model a loving marriage after the unending circles of bagels, or perk up mornings with coffee that's freshly ground by the heel of a giraffe. Though each location's stock is slightly different, all shops carry standard items such as eggs, milk, bread, fruit, magic beans, vegetables, and beer. Although online ordering is not available for this Groupon, regular customers enjoy the benefit of choosing items from Farm Stores’ website and designating a pickup time.
With a fragrant host of photosynthesizing wares, De La Flor Gardens delights guests with colorful arrangements and occasion-appropriate projects. Eschew singing telegrams or carrier pigeons trained in interpretive dance for a colorful explosion of sentiment corralled into a carefully arranged collection of flowers. The Appreciation bouquet intersperses white and purple blossoms among eye-catching pink roses ($44.99), perfect for expressing gratitude to a mom, teacher, or friend. Or, show off your romantic side with the Token of My Love bouquet ($49.95), which nestles yellow roses, hydrangeas, and other brightly pigmented blooms into a charming wicker basket that may be repurposed for a picnic or as a storage bin for smaller, even more charming wicker baskets.
Though it gets its name from its pole-fitness classes, Polestars is hardly a one-trick pony. True, many guests might be attracted to the way the pole-dance sessions, taught with an artistic and athletic approach, build strength, flexibility, and sensuality through fun and inhibition-shattering routines. But they're just as likely to visit for the bounty of other unorthodox fitness classes. In Fly Gym, for instance, students support themselves on ceiling-mounted fabric slings or with their own powers of levitation as they perform yoga poses, strength exercises, and even traditional pole-dance moves high above the ground. Kangoo Jumps sessions fit students with specially designed bouncing boots for a low-impact, gravity-defying workout, and Hoopnotica helps participants hone body awareness and rhythm savvy with the simple aid of a hula hoop. Whatever class they choose, guests can rest their minds knowing they're attending an environmentally friendly fitness studio: the lights are energy efficient, the dance floor is made of sustainably grown bamboo, and the cleaning products are nontoxic and biodegradable.
Joseph Sirotkin founded DynaServ more than 45 years ago, on the principle that customer service stands out when it comes to landscape maintenance. His staffers are subject to background checks, formal training, and wacky inflatable hurdles before they begin work, during which they proudly wear official uniforms. They install and maintain landscapes for homes and businesses, performing services that include irrigation, pest control, and hurricane restoration. The company’s garden center also boasts 25 acres of plants, pots, figurines, and accessories to outfit green-thumbed shoppers.
