In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.

Drive Thru Philly curbs hearty appetites with mammoth philly steak or chicken sandwiches constructed on soft hoagie buns. Patrons can moonwalk up to the counter or motor through the convenient drive-thru to adorn a beefy behemoth with a choice of accouterments. Cheese-slice aficionados opt for provolone, while old-school, Philadelphia-trained palates prefer their cheese sauce, like their child prodigies, in "whiz" form.

Famished individuals or two hungry diners and their doppelgängers can also bedeck four sandwiches with various condiments, including mayonnaise, ketchup, and fry sauce.
With a combined 15 years of experience, the trained and certified technicians at ActionLink Wireless mend flagging phones in a 2,300-square-foot store and repair center. Patrons can drop off their personal devices and rest assured that circuit-board veterinarians will refit phones from their stock filled exclusively with new, factory-approved parts. Expert technicians scrutinize screens to erase cracks or scratches and check advanced phones for signs of sentience to squash budding robot uprisings. The ActionLink team can also solve technical imperfections besides out-of-touch screens, such as draining water-damaged handsets or polishing shells marred with scratches, dings, and remora fish.
As she grew up in the Salt Lake Valley, Kamille Bauer gradually honed her skills with a needle and yarn. Working diligently throughout the years, she eventually started to teach her craft to other interested people, but something was missing—without a local yarn store, her options were limited. That’s where the idea for Kamille’s was born, and in 2007, she flung open the doors to her shop, knitting needles clutched proudly in hand. Today, she stocks the store with a variety of fine alpaca wools and organic-cotton yarns, as well as books and accessories and leads classes for all skill levels in both knitting and crocheting.
