For more than 100 years, United Parcel Service's recognizable brown trucks have been showing up on doorsteps in a timely fashion. Founded in 1907 as a messenger company, UPS has grown into a multibillion-dollar corporation by enabling commerce to travel the globe. Now the world's largest package-delivery company and a recognized name in specialized transportation and logistics services, UPS's legions manage the flow of goods, funds, and grandmas' cookies in more than 200 countries. The UPS Store's obliging staff and reputation for reliable package conveyance attracts all types of packers, shippers, and printers. Packers regularly stop in for masking-tape rolls and other do-it-yourself supplies. Alternatively, senders can enlist the skillful packing of the store's staffers, who will deftly seal boxes and cushion contents with bubble wrap or styrofoam peanut-butter sandwiches. In addition to packaging services and supplies, UPS Stores proffer printing services for large-quantity flyer makers and mailbox rentals for lazy messenger pigeons. Each independently owned location abides by the company's rigorous cargo standards and solemn Pack & Ship Promise.
Rogue Personal Training marries the talents of two fiercely devoted fitness specialists, both of whom aid clients of all ages in redefining their physical limits. In addition to holding a BS in health management and in health and physical education, Landon Branine has manned military-style skirmishes as a certified Army Combative Training instructor. Furthermore, Branine infuses his training sessions with innovative fighting techniques that he's learned while mastering mixed martial arts and tae kwon do in the competitive sphere. With a BS in exercise science, Ben Arnold boasts more than five years of personal training experience to develop his enthusiastic approach, and also has a penchant for cycling, jiu jitsu, and outdoor activities. Ryan Bell's face graces the flipside of Rogue's coin, brandishing a BS in kinesiology and eight years of experience in the Army Reserve—six of which were spent heading the fitness program, and two of which were spent infiltrating the barbell black market as an undercover spy.
Landon, Ryan, and Arnold chart custom workout plans for recruits during small group, partner, and one-on-one personal-training programs. Slightly larger crowds can enlist in their boot camps or speed-and-agility camps, taking advantage of the nearby Andover Stadium to sprint down the track and hurdle over the field-goal posts.
At TIKITUM, fun sits at the top of a pyramid of priorities, followed by art, science, nature, and sensory integration. Yet each of those priorities gets its due and then some inside the exploration space, which engages kids' five senses with different hands-on displays and activities. Kids ages 3 to 7 can come by for an open house, or attend an art class in the LAB. The classes might blend science and art with play, for instance by exploring the lights and colors of outer space. There are even classes for children with special needs such as autism and ADD.

The veterinarians and support staff at Falcon Valley Animal Hospital tend to a revolving cast of cats and dogs that comes through the doors. They love animals—all of them are pet owners except for Soot the cat, who is not responsible enough to own other cats.
Inside the hospital, patients will find an onsite pharmacy, boarding facilities, training classes, and, naturally, veterinary services. Veteran puppy trainer Dennis Bastian teaches rebellious pups to adhere to their best friends’ commands. Comprehensive exams for new puppies and kittens get pets up-to-date on vaccinations and include heartworm, flea, and tick prevention as well as free food samples. Pet microchipping—a procedure in which a microchip the size of a grain of rice is placed under a pet’s skin—is also available to help locate pets in the event that they get lost or want to cheat in a game of hide-and-seek.
