Open since 1988, the locally owned and operated Pioneer Glass and Mirror outfits households and automobiles with an array of customized glimmering glasswork. From humble beginnings in the back shop of a gas station, the company has metamorphosed into an expansive showroom with five design and installation professionals on staff. The trained and certified technicians envelop showers and baths in professional Basco shower enclosures and adorn cabinets, shelves, and furniture with pieces from a stock of more than 140 styles of obscure and patterned glass. Towering Kentwood mirrors can encircle entire workout areas or bloodsport arenas, and automotive services repair the windshields and rearview mirrors of cars, trucks, and deluxe big wheels.
Since its birth as a single-bay tire shop in 1929, Jack Williams Tire & Auto Service Centers has vastly expanded its array of vehicle services and spawned more than 20 additional shops throughout the state. During each of the three included oil changes, a team of knowledgeable car whisperers convinces motors' mouths to open wide as they swap soiled oil for up to five quarts of fresh, standard engine juice and install a new filter. Steel steeds with a flat tire can lurch into the shop and ask one of Jack Williams' experts to repair it; if the puncture wound is fixable, drivers can enjoy lifetime repairs and rebalancing on that one tire. To top it all off, rewards-booklet-toting folk can enjoy a bevy of additional savings including a 50% discount on a wheel alignment and a state safety inspection, as well as free shuttle service and complimentary midservice performances of "Greased Lightning."
For more than a quarter-century, Sears Auto Center-Old Forge Motor Cars has been keeping rides cruising smoothly with maintenance services and fresh brand-name tires. An online tire-size finder lets drivers peruse available rubbery soles based on tire size or their vehicles' year, make, and model; customers can also search for brands such as BFGoodrich, Cooper, Michelin, and Yokohama. Ailing cars can roll into the shop and let experienced technicians diagnose and treat their issues, from loose belts and hoses to squeaky brakes or wheels that become clumsily misaligned when cute convertibles whiz by. Sears Auto Center-Old Forge Motor Cars is open seven days a week and also harbors used vehicles available for purchase.
The staff at Marley's Gotham Grill makes diners feel at home by serving up an extensive lunch and dinner menu of home-style entrees and grilled favorites. Handcrafted burgers are taken up a notch as hot sauce and pulled pork crown the beef patties, while paninis hold grilled and breaded chicken with marinara sauce and mozzarella between buttery slices of bread. The laidback eatery also puts a spin on traditional chicken wings by slathering them in forty types of sauce, from savory garlic parmesan to spicy red thai curry.
When not sating diners' appetites, the wood-accented restaurant stays busy sponsoring softball teams, hosting holiday parties, and running Texas Hold 'Em games, which involve using a deck of cards slathered in castor oil.
