Chevron not only gasses up grownup go-karts, but also buffs out and shines up fuel-injected four wheelers with the Ryko FoamBrite car-wash system. Customers can bring in their mucky motorcar for a deluxe wash ($5) that includes the FoamBrite wash and foam bath, giving the auto a lively spray down that disintegrates dirt and grime and erases the clever limericks left in dusty verse on the rear windshield. Next, a spot-free rinse and drive-thru dry eradicate blemishes and leave customers' cars glistening, like a freshly lacquered sunbeam. With the premium wash ($7), road huggers receive the same treatment, plus an underbelly scrub and poly sealant. The Works wash ($9) adds a prewash and triple-foam shampoo to the foamy fusion, bringing out the true richness and luster of the auto's epidermis. Additionally, wheels are rubbed to a glossy sheen before road warriors are released to prowl the asphalt jungle.
For more than 20 years, an affable staff has smoothed coifs at Gallery of Hair Design, a neighborhood salon that doubles as a wall space for local artists. The two-hour Keratin Express treatment, a streamlined version of traditional keratin processes, can flatten out curly or frizzy hair and reduce styling time for up to six weeks. Post-treatment, the hair whisperers recommend waiting 12 hours before washing or using hair products and up to two weeks before applying color or diving in a vat of pudding. The formula works best on previously treated hair, and virgin strands may not unfurl to their utmost until after two or three treatments. The salon prioritizes customers with day-before appointment reminders; complimentary soda, tea, coffee, and wine; and high-fives on demand.
For more than 30 years, the staff at the family-owned Leonard's Furniture has helped homeowners make their dwellings more livable by stocking a 14,000 sq. ft. showroom full of décor and furnishings from more than 150 vendors. The team makes the shopping process easier by delivering and assembling any in-stock items free of charge. Those items include furnishings for dining rooms, living rooms, and bedrooms from brands such as Ashley, Lane, FlexSteel, and Tempur-Pedic. The store's comprehensive stock includes home office staples including desks, chairs, and mirrors that come in varying sizes and opinions on Snow White. Shoppers can also find equipment to furnish home-entertainment rooms, such as theater seats that eject anyone who takes out their cell phone during a movie.
Since their showroom debuted in 1984, Furniture Country's staffers have armed homeowners with classic southern-style furnishings from brands including Omnia, Lane, and Ashley. Their fixtures embellish every corner of your abode, from dining-room sets for the kitchen to leather chairs for the home office. They also help shoppers put finishing touches on their interior decor with lamps, rugs, pillows, and throws, and they help clients get a good night's sleep by introducing them to Serta mattresses or sandmen for hire.
Wood You Furniture’s father-and-sons team furnishes customers with household accouterments crafted from high-quality woods, such as oak, alder, and maple, which customers can customize into heirloom-quality pieces with paint, wood stain, or flame decals. Bedeck a house’s many rooms with a vast selection of pieces, including dressers, murphy beds, and writing desks, that span from traditional shaker styles to modern structures. An occasional table ($44–$179) will give living-room dwellers a retina-regaling surface to set their coffee cups, fondue pots, or particle accelerators upon, and a minimalist dining chair ($52) or a cushion-sporting dining seat ($99) can befriend a lonely eating console, such a shaker-style dining table ($129). Because customers must finish the pieces themselves, the furnishing-whisperers of Wood You gladly demonstrate the how-tos of furniture finishing with step-by-step instruction.
