The wireless provider industry changes quickly, but Arch Telecom keeps up by giving both technicians and front-line employees continual training. The extra effort shows: enthusiastic testimonials from clients cite employees' patient technical support for two seniors who were far from tech-savvy, as well as a staffer staying well beyond closing time to ensure a business's new phone lines were set up properly.
Wireless Store is Boston's first T-Mobile limited retailer, offering a sizable selection of wireless phones and accessories. Conversations can be held hands free while driving down the highway or riding on horseback with advanced Bluetooth headsets made by Jabra, Plantronics, Motorola, and BlueAnt. Other wireless accessories, such as chargers, cases, screen protectors, and batteries, keep phones clean, shiny, and fully charged. Though it wears the T-Mobile logo as proudly as a rebellious teenager in a Cramps T-shirt, Wireless Store is a locally owned and operated establishment.
A Karma mani-pedi combination gives harried hands 30 minutes of soaking, rubbing, polishing, and painting attention, and the other 60-minute half of the treatment defouls frazzled feet with a bath, a callus checkup, and an exfoliating massage that works its way up the legs, finishing finally with a slather of nourishing butter and a polish. If your hands and feet are already detachable and dishwasher safe, opt instead for the glowing mini-facial and makeup, during which face flesh is steamed, deep-cleansed, and exfoliated. Necks and shoulders are then blessed with a mini-massage, followed by a 30-minute makeover using products customized to each individual’s skin type.
The journey from confusion to organization doesn't have to be a long one. Often enough, it's the length of one tiny strip of metal—the staple that holds a school paper together, or attaches a cover letter to a résumé. Staples doesn't carry staples exclusively, of course, but for 26 years, they've aspired to create that same sense of effortless order. Their library of products covers everything from pencils and fire extinguishers to all-in-one machines and facility supplies, all of which aim to make jobs easier.
The technology aisles feature more advanced gear: cameras, phones, label makers, tablets, and laptops from popular brands. Onsite copy and print centers churn out professional documents, business cards, and several other types of paper and photo goods. And, though Staples' focus is work, the stores can also furnish break rooms with chairs and coffeemakers.
As the first-ever college football game played at Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots, this game between the University of Massachusetts Minutemen and rival New Hampshire Wildcats promises to be a special clash, as both teams jostle for position in the CAA standings. Lead by senior quarterback Kyle Havens, UMass looks to stay atop the conference, while their Granite State gridiron foes hope to ride their stout, interception-hungry defense to an upset victory. Witness the next gridiron chapter in this traditional border battle between bitter enemies, a historic rivalry ever since New Hampshire’s J.D. Salinger recovered Massachusetts-born Jack Kerouac’s fumble in the 1941 Metaphor Bowl.
In 2002, owner Peter Xu realized that the chemicals of traditional dry cleaning had caused damage to his hand, so he began a complete overhaul to eliminate those chemicals from his business and the lives of his customers. Today, Nature's Best Cleaners uses a chemical-free cleaning system known as "wet cleaning" that uses a water-based solution with natural cleansing agents. The process leaves no residue and evicts chemical-pollutant stowaways hiding in clean clothing. For those who have always wanted to defy the "dry clean only" warning, wet cleaning satisfies rebellious desires without threat of shrinking or spontaneous combustion.
