It may seem like a bold claim, but the skilled staffers of Storchak Cleaners are fairly confident they can clean any item of clothing. Armed with quality cleaning solutions, the expert dry-cleaners gussy up thick wool sweaters, fuzzy fur coats, and glamorous silk kimonos, taking extra care to spot-clean stubborn stains. They also clean and restore elegant wedding dresses before placing them in special acid-free boxes for safekeeping. The versatile cleaners even take on stuffed animals, carefully deep-cleaning the fluffy toys.
In addition to dry-cleaning, the professionals extend their expertise towards laundry, alterations, and shoe-repair services. They offer pickup and delivery, happily trucking loads of clothes to and from homes, offices, or underground cave fortresses of crime-fighting.
On Valentine's Day weekend, more than a dozen cities across the world band together to support the Children's Tumor Foundation during Cupid's Undie Run. Whether they live in sunny Australia or the chilly American Midwest, participants strip down to their underwear for an approximately 1.5-mile race, propelled toward the finish line by a charitable spirit and the fear that Cupid will reprimand non-runners with poison-ivy-tipped arrows. Runners have a chance to win MP3 players, free drinks, and romantic getaways, and 100% of funds raised benefit the Children's Tumor Foundation.
Since opening 40 years ago, each of the trees at B&J Trees has been planted, grown, and harvested on-site. Today, it's two resident arborists who nurture a slew of different tree breeds throughout the seasons. In the nursery, visitors will find more than 1,500 "balled and burlap" trees?whose trunks have been wrapped in burlap, and roots have been carefully nestled into a protective covering?including spruce, white pine, and balsam fir. During the summer months, full lines of landscape-ready trees line the walls. Come Christmas, they supply locals with lush, fragrant trees, including fraser fir, balsam fir, canaan fir, and pine. The folks at B&J encourage their patrons to bring along the whole family to enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides, popcorn, cups of hot cocoa, a Santa Claus impersonator, and?at some sites?chainsaw carvings.
