Drawing on half a century of automotive service, the family owned and operated Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigor with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to US EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
A one-stop shop for tennis players of all stripes, Silton Tennis prepares racketeers for upcoming matches with a deep inventory of tennis gear and professional stringing services. The sheer variety of rackets from top brands including Wilson, Prince, and Babolat allows players to pick a frame befitting their particular style, and court-durable shoes help them grind out long rallies and land softly after climbing the chain-link fence to get extra height on a serve. Beyond the selection of new gear, the staff keeps trusted rackets strong by restringing them on a professional-grade Babolat machine.
Under the guidance of an owner who boasts more than three decades of experience in the auto-repair industry, Framingham Tire, Auto & Truck's troop of ASE–certified technicians skillfully refurbishes vehicles with a comprehensive slate of services. The team meticulously scrutinizes buggies of all makes and models for a vast array of ailments, adeptly changing oil, repairing cracked glass, and silencing squeaky brakes and overly chummy bumper stickers. An extensive arsenal of replacement parts and tires updates automotive anatomy, and the garage regularly services commercial vehicles and trucks. Staffers can pick up or tow in damaged cars, equipping owners with complimentary loaner cars for important meetings or highly publicized jumps over school buses. While waiting in the shop, patrons harness the entertainment powers of free WiFi and TV as youngsters nibble on complimentary candy.
For 34 years, The Clean Machine's facility has been snatching unsuspecting autos right off the road, infusing them with liquid lifeblood, and scrubbing their sullied frames and interiors until they shine. Customers can steer their cars, SUVs, or vans into the car-care center and listen to the satisfied slurping sounds as their trusty steeds guzzle as much Exxon conventional oil as they need (synthetic oil is available for an extra fee). During the exterior car wash, the staff scans the car from bumper to bumper, using water and soap to wash away dirt and road debris. Drivers then choose to smother either the rugs or seats with shampoo, which helps clean out splotches from spilled soda, shoe muck, and backseat psychologists administering homemade Rorschach tests.
What began as a cleaning business more than 20 years ago has blossomed into Car Spa Detailing Center’s two full-scale locations, with Joe DeBarros at the helm since their inception. From its bases in Cambridge and the Natick Collection mall, a team of acute technicians conditions vehicles with a menu of services ranging from express details to all-out auto-spa detailing with hand washes and liquid Simonize waxes. They lovingly swab every nook and cranny of cars ranging in size from compacts to large SUVs, trucks, and vans, polishing the outside and leaving the façade wholesome enough to play Abraham Lincoln in Presidents' Day parades.
Eco-friendly, reusable Re-Pac Bags protect food, toiletries, and other items within confines that repel mildew and mould. Vibrant colours and patterns add touches of style to their tightly woven nylon liners, zippers, and polyester outsides, which have been rated safe for food by a third-party lab. The sacks range in volume from 7"x4" bags (about the size of a pair of sunglasses) all the way up to a gallon-size bag ideal for carrying toiletries or the world's largest gumdrop.
The company, which was started by a nurse and her mother, manufactures all its bags within the United States. It also backs each product with a lifetime warranty, which guarantees the bags stay safe during countless trips through the washing machine or the interdimensional wormhole in the dishwasher.
