Unlike the clothing trends that have passed through its doors over the last 73 years, Esquire Fine Cleaners’ dedication to quality service has never changed. During the dry-cleaning process, the staff uses an odorless, nontoxic solvent to gently cleanse delicate silk and fine wool garments or de-grime household linens and casual pieces. Wedding-gown preservation protects the delicate folds of lace and the sheen on satin, creating an instant heirloom for a daughter, granddaughter, or gullible family dog. The staff also imparts its expertise to alterations and shoe repair.
Helmed by a talented nail tech known as “Queen Minx,” Your Nail Palace and Spa ups the ante when it comes to manicures and pedicures. Soft jazz music and lavender oils create an immediate sense of tranquility within the salon, as talented nail artists guide tired feet into ion baths.

Beauty specialists also enhance features with eyebrow waxes and pump up lashes with synthetic extensions.
At Sweet Desire Nail Lounge, talented nail technicians cater to hands and feet by smoothing calluses, tidying cuticles, and trimming nails. They finish the treatment by applying a coat of polish that comes in a variety of colors. Opt for a Shellac manicure and staff members will use a polish that dries almost instantly and lasts for up to two weeks without chipping or getting homesick. While technicians soften the skin and glam up nails, clients can relax in pedicure thrones and sip on cold lemon water.
The Financial Lounge may primarily be an independent insurance agency that works with both businesses and individuals, but it actually helps clients with all aspects of finance, including business consulting, accounting, and tax preparation. One the other side of the business, technicians work to keep businesses and individuals lives running smoothly by repairing their computers, installing operating systems, and removing viruses.
