Like a sort of paint-by-numbers for weight loss, the Diet Center's four distinct dieting programs make shedding weight an easy step-by-step process. Each program includes detailed information about what to eat and makes food options accessible for every individual's daily routine. For instance, the Exclusively You program relies on structured and easy-to-follow meal plans that clients can create in their own kitchen, while the Instant Shape Up plan utilizes ready-made meal replacements and snacks, ideal for those who rarely have time to cook. Regardless of which program the client chooses, Diet Center's knowledgeable staff will answer all questions and inquiries along the way, just as they have for the past 40 years.
Although the number of Angel Tips locations hovers around 60, there’s one thing you can count on at each of its salons: knowledgeable staff. That’s because every nail tech, massage therapist, and aesthetician learns the art of beautification at Angel’s Tips’ training center in Stamford, Connecticut. During mani-pedis, they dole out luxurious add-ons such as paraffin wax and hot-stone massage. They deeply cleanse skin during facials to reveal brighter, more even complexions, and rejuvenate bodies with tropical body scrubs and Vichy showers.
If not for its bright yellow color and the mural of a cornfield painted across its doors, Go Green Dry Cleaning’s 1969 Volkswagen could almost be mistaken for the Scooby-Doo gang’s Mystery Machine. But instead of fighting ghost-impersonating criminals with their wits, the owners of this van fight clothing stains and biohazards with environmentally friendly dry-cleaning techniques. Akin to liquid sand, their GreenEarth silicone solution forgoes harsh chemicals, irritants, and odors to clean clothes in a manner that is safe for both customers and the earth. The shop’s technicians restore all sorts of fabrics—including wool, silk, and Sasquatch fur—bequeathing each with a soft, static-free touch before packaging them in biodegradable plastic. The team then hops into the van, which runs on E85 ethanol, to deliver the freshly laundered clothes directly to doorsteps. Aside from using gentle solutions to clean up sweaters and pants, Go Green Dry Cleaning supports the earth by contributing to organizations across Long Island, including Go Green Festival and the Soular Soundz concert series.
Like most good ideas, Gymboree Play and Music didn't begin in a business meeting—it began out of necessity. In 1976, Joan Barnes, a California mom, found herself frustrated with the lack of spaces where she could take her kids for safe and age-appropriate play time. Knowing that other parents were undoubtedly feeling the same frustration, she took matters into her own hands and founded Gymboree Play and Music. She consulted experts to design a curriculum of activities to foster the development of children’s cognitive, physical, and social skills through structured play. She hired a nationally renowned playground designer Jay Beckwith to design the proprietary play equipment at her centers. And her staff began conducting entertaining classes covering subjects ranging from music to sports to impart valuable lessons of imagination and physical activity to developing minds. As their children learned and socialized, parents also found benefit in meeting and befriending other moms and dads in their local area. More than 30 years later, her vision has proved to be a success: more than 712 child-centered franchises now spread over 42 countries, bringing confidence and creativity to thousands of youngsters in several continents and to one in the center of the earth.
For more than 50 years, Adelphi’s staff of soiled-clothing cleaners has been removing stains from grubby garments with reinvigorating dry-cleaning services with pickup and delivery options in the Garden City area. Let Adelphi pickup your corrupted clothing, or drop it off in store for a thorough inspection. Adelphi’s staff will scourge for coffee spots, paw prints, and children's ketchup-painted hand-portraits before initiating a stringent scrubbing in a filth-obliterating eco-friendly Firbimatic cleaning machine. Adelphi tenderly tends to threads of all types, restoring sweaters to stain-free snuggly-ness ($4.99) and dresses to unadulterated sultriness ($10.59), while polluted pants ($5.35) and crumpled suits ($11.50) are more than sufficiently spruced for romantic first dates or for a contract signing to write french fry-inspired haikus. For customers with problems beyond cleanliness conundrums, Adelphi also performs an array of accoutrement-accentuating services. Pickup and delivery are only available for customers within a 10-mile radius of Garden City.
Intimo’s collection of luxury robes, pajamas, and underwear lets customers feel as fashionable when lounging on the couch as when strutting down Fifth Avenue. Women’s options update classic robes and chemises with elegant details such as cowl necks and lace trims. Pajamas flatter men’s bodies with sleek silhouettes made from fabrics such as charmeuse silk, heathered cotton, and bamboo rayon—all much softer than the typical wooly-mammoth undershirts.
