Family-owned since 1929, Mirkins Cleaners takes a modern approach to the art of dry cleaning with eco-friendly methods. Happily tumble in leaf piles knowing Mirkins' stain experts can take down any wayward smudge on sport jackets ($7.50), Ugg boots ($22-28), and lumberjacks' two-piece suits ($14.50). Eco-conscious Mirkins uses an efficient, less-polluting cleaning system and biodegradable garment bags, which it recycles along with hangers and children's encyclopedias. Though not included with this Groupon, Mirkins also offers pick up, delivery, and laundry services.
The instructors at Enfield Scuba and Watersports LLC stick with their students, guiding them through the scuba curriculum from the first day of class to their first dive in local waters or exotic destinations. The company’s classes accommodate guests with diverse interests and all levels of experience. Discover Scuba courses let first-time divers practice breathing underwater in a swimming pool, whereas PADI lessons prepare groups to earn their open-water certifications. Specialty classes teach niche scuba techniques and topics, such as how to dive safely at night or how to capture images of aquatic wildlife without having to trap them in a glass cube first.
The staff also organizes group travel, leading trips to Grand Cayman island, Australia, and the Bahamas in pursuit of colorful reef dives. They also sell, rent, and service scuba equipment.
