A Mediterranean deli that warms veggie and chicken wraps in a panini press and prepares fresh-stuffed grape leaves. A smoothie bar that blends protein-packed drinks. A grocery store that stocks gluten-free foods and fresh produce. Green Life Market encompasses all of these things. The organic market—which is located directly off the highway—also sells discounted New Chapter supplements, and crafts their own homemade cinnamon hummus. Designed to sate snack cravings and fuel workouts, their signature energy balls blend gluten-free oatmeal, coconut flakes, almond pieces, local honey, organic flax, organic peanut butter, and pumpkin, sunflower, and chia seeds.
Route 23 Honda knows that it takes two crucial components to nurse cars back to health: ASE-certified technicians and modern diagnostic equipment. The dealership has both in its service department, allowing it to offer both top-notch maintenance work including oil changes and multi-point inspections, as well as repairs performed with OEM parts. Of course, the team takes just as good care of drivers, treating waiting customers to free popcorn, coffee, and soda during express services.
But dependable service is nothing new for Route 23, which has been in the same location for 40 years. For generations, the family-owned dealership has been home to rows upon rows of brand new Hondas flaunting their factory finishes, untapped odometers, and modern features. Of course, the inventory also includes pre-owned vehicles from many makes and of many models, all of which include CarFax reports that detail the car's history and allergies.
The skilled stylists at Fantastic Sams Lincoln Park turn their deftly handled shears not only to the hair atop patrons' heads, but also to unruly facial hair, performing beard and mustache trims. Other services include facial waxing, color and texture treatments, and updos for formal events.
