The staff at Zoots Dry Cleaning extracts stains and stress by pairing eco-friendly dry-cleaning services with the convenience of extended evening and Sunday hours, 24-hour drop-off and pickup services (available at most locations), and an automated drive-thru system. Team members clean clothes, draperies, bedding, and rugs with a biodegradable solvent as opposed to harsh PERC chemicals, and some staff are trained to expertly excise stains from the delicate lace and beadwork of bridal-gown bodices. Most stores also have a tailor on location who is able to alter ensembles in a snap. Customers get e-mail notifications when orders are ready or they can download a smartphone app to keep a close eye on the status of their dirty laundry.
The Gym Class’s trainers lead boot camps that are both fun and effective. Sessions are designed to promote fitness and camaraderie, encouraging athletes to work together to achieve each other’s goals. The boot camp blends traditional, callisthenic, and bodyweight exercises with interval training and strength training to help promote fat loss, often using equipment such as stability balls, battle ropes, and suspension training systems. The location of the camps can also vary, with groups meeting at recreation areas, gymnastics gyms, and elementary schools.
Lady T’s relationship with the occult is hardly a new one. She got her first set of tarot cards at age 9 from her father Richard, an avid historian, and since then, she has explored her powers as a psychic, a scryer, and a witch, eventually opening her own magickal boutique. The shop is welcoming, eschewing shadows and secretiveness in favor of bright colors and mystical wall art. Shelves covered in gauzy fabrics hold bottled spells and candles, and packets of herbs hang from the walls. Lady T and her fellow conjurers offer their services in psychic and tarot readings and the casting of spells, and also teach classes in building wands.
