Since 1947, Hoffman Heating & Refrigeration, Inc. has been fortifying homes throughout the Twin Cities with high-performing HVAC systems. The company’s range of Lennox products includes high-efficiency furnaces, air conditioners, and boilers, most of which the technicians can get up and running quickly thanks to same-day installations and the team members’ unique ability to sing in binary. The team also keeps systems running strong by making themselves available for around-the-clock service appointments.
The EPA-certified technicians of Apollo Heating and Air Conditioning have been safeguarding indoor air quality since Jimmy Carter was in office. That's more than 32 years spent ensuring home air conditioners, furnaces, thermostats, and boilers are up to snuff. The team can also replace tired units with brand-new ones by Honeywell, Weil McClain, or Lennox, and is available 24 hours a day for emergencies, such as tending to a wall-mounted AC that has fallen and can't get up.
When Max Schneiderman began his family’s business, it was a grocery store first and foremost. Then Schneiderman’s began to carry a few furniture items and slowly these grew to overshadow the cans of soup and produce until the furnishings finally swallowed the foodstuffs whole.
Now, Schneiderman's Furniture has spread from the Iron Range to spots throughout the Twin Cities. The showrooms stock local and foreign furniture from more than 100 manufacturers. Many items in stock can be customized in color and texture to match a homeowner's current obsession with plastic flamingos.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
Long rumored to be the home of eerie happenings, a lonely stretch along Highway 61 has begun to attract even more sinister attention with the arrival of The Haunting Experience on Highway 61. Drawing from the site’s fabled past—including tales of cannibalism and mysterious disappearances—three haunted houses illicit goose bumps by way of deranged clowns, men with chainsaws, and ghosts plagued by unfinished business and half-completed doctoral theses. While waiting to enter the spooky abodes, guests can fortify their spirits by a bonfire and munch on snacks from the Ghoulish Grill and frosty mugs at the beer tent. Aside from these terrifying attractions, guests seeking a tamer experience can venture through a corn maze during the daytime, solving clues hidden within its paths to win prizes.
