Open since 1963, Donatos peddles its doughy, cheese-covered delicacies in nearly 200 stores across five states. The Northcoast Double Sausage Pizza is the newest creation from Donatos thin crust sooth-sayers. The pie balances savory forces with both Donatos family recipe sausage and mild Italian sausage undulating on a taste-bud teeter-totter. Stitched together with a mélange of provolone, mozzarella, and cheddar cheeses, the pizza is blanketed by a patchwork of caramelized onions and banana peppers. See the sidebar for a list of all 18 participating Donatos locations.

In 1887, 17-year-old Italian immigrant Salvatore Capezio moved to New York to sell theatrical shoes, opening his first shop near the old Metropolitan Opera House. Of course, he quickly found himself dealing with the intense demands of the professional dancers that frequented the store, and Capezio began challenging himself to master the delicate balance and construction of pointe shoes. By the 1930s, his designs carried dancers across the stages of Broadway, and innovations bearing his name continue to appear today in such television and film productions as Dancing with the Stars and Black Swan. Committed to the needs of performers in dance, theater, and recreation, the Capezio - Wayne team continues to fulfill young Sal's legacy by crafting footwear for ballet, tap, and ballroom dancing, and gymnastics.
In business since 1912 and currently operated by a sixth-generation furrier, Vollbracht Furs preserves and protects pelts inside the upscale Summit Mall. Upon request, bonded drivers pick up furry garments from homes, businesses, or backyard tree forts and carry them to the family-owned shop. An authorized fur-care specialist then cleans, combs, and conditions furs to enhance durability and softness, while repairing small rips and tears in order to thwart further damage. A temperature-, humidity-, and light-controlled storage facility prevents furs from drying out, oxidizing, or prematurely aging, while protecting them from the thieving paws of chilly teddy bears. Vollbracht Furs will store vestments for any stretch of time through December 2012, with customers expected to pick up their furs by the following January.
