Originally established in 1918 as a blacksmith shop, Neuls Springs, Chassis, and Autoglass now turns its metallurgical know-how toward installing quality auto components from Moog, Monroe, and Wagner. The shop's licensed mechanics keep buggies smoothly bouncing along with spring and suspension services and MPI-accredited repairs. Glass services, such as windshield replacements and stone-chip repairs, sustain visibility and structural integrity, and Aquapel treatments repel rain, ice, and snow, leaving wipers free to signal profanity-laden semaphore messages to showboating school-bus drivers.
Brush Fire Ceramic Studio hands over the creative reins to its customers, who browse a selection of more than 300 ceramic pieces while choosing the perfect figurine or plate to personalize. Then, would-be van Goghs select stencils or sketch a design freehand, flipping through books or eating the pages for inspiration. The studio time clock starts as painters dip their brushes in as many colours as they like, but visitors are never charged for more than two hours of studio time per visit. Professionals glaze and fire creations, and customers can return to pick them up in about a week before placing their pieces on mantels and gifting them to family members.
Murray Chevrolet's showrooms feature new Chevrolet sedans, trucks, and SUVs, and its pre-owned lots feature Chevrolets as well as Cadillacs, BMWs, and Audis. Over in the service department, which has 25 service bays and a quick-lube bay for oil changes, a staff of factory-trained GM Goodwrench technicians quickly tends to whatever ails cars or improves them with services such as nitrogen-tire fills and scratch 'n' sniff bumper-sticker applications. While cars are being worked on, customers can take one of seven shuttles wherever they need to go.
Winnipeg Zumba’s instructors motivate students to boogie their way toward better health. Classes torch calories and rehabilitate off-tempo metronomes with easy-to-follow moves set to lively Latin beats that create an atmosphere reminiscent of a dance party.
For more than 30 years, Continental Car Services has rejuvenated ailing foreign and domestic autos with energizing services and repairs. During a four-wheel alignment and tire rotation, laser-guided equipment aligns all four tires. Tire wear is dispersed across all four wheels during the tire rotation, which contributes to more balanced driving and less arguing between tires about who gets shotgun.
Founded by ex-cop and child-safety expert Samantha Wilson, Kidproof educates parents and children across North America on issues of family safety. Each seven-hour babysitting training class, which begins at 10 a.m. and carries on until 5 p.m., gives youngsters ages 12–15 a solid foundation in basic sitter knowledge and rudimentary tube-sock ventriloquism. In addition to confidence-building child-care tips from Kidproof's babysitter experts, students receive two hours of first-aid tutoring. Graduates of the daylong class leave having learned how to safely find a babysitting job and how to look after children of all ages. Take-home goodies include a babysitter handbook, a wallet-sized babysitter training-completion card, and a state-of-the-art babysitter teddy bear finder. Kidproof requests that pupils bring along a lunch containing no nuts or candy, a teddy bear or doll about the size of a baby, and a pen and paper.
