Since 1993, the family-owned EyeMart Optical Outlet's goal has been to furnish central Iowans with affordable eyewear. The eye boutique spans nine locations and its inventory of basic and designer frames presents stylish options for all face structures. Optometrists at each location furnish their patients with prescriptions that can be quickly traded for single-vision or progressive lenses with protective coatings and lasers.
The staff at Hair Studio 52 + Day Spa offers upscale spa services without the pretension that can sometimes be found at high-end boutiques or medieval castles' saunas. Aside from Aveda spa treatments and microdermabrasion, clients can reserve appointments with Dr. Vicky Hagstrom, a physician who administers injectables, chemical peels, and hair-restoration services. Of course, spa services are just half of what's available here—in the salon, stylists perform cut, color, and texturizing services, and nail technicians groom digits with scented scrubs, foot soaks, and gel polish.
At an age when most young men would be happy to move out of their parents' basement, Martin Stubstad wasn't in too much of a rush. That's because back in 1977, Martin was building his own business, Archery Headquarters, bow by compound bow, and his base of operations was in his parents' cellar. Today, the business not only occupies its own space, but it's the go-to shop for hobbyists and professional bows-folk alike. There, quiver-curious visitors can do more than just purchase archery supplies, such as bows, arrows, and apples. Certified instructors teach classes, from a one-lesson intro course to more advanced shooting classes, while archers practice their skills in the shooting lanes on the range.
