Martinizing Dry Cleaning commits to staying on good terms with Mother Earth, using recycled hangers, biodegradable packaging, and the GreenEarth cleaning process that shields customers from exposure to chemical residues. According to a 2007 Charlotte Weekly article, “The [owners] say some of the benefits of using the solvent include clothes that are softer and brighter. The garments also don’t have the smell from perchloroethylene—a common dry cleaning agent.” Though relatively new to the Charlotte area, Martinizing Dry Cleaners have been around since 1949 and have used their more than 60 years in the business to streamline their process. They launder and dry-clean clothes, linens, and such precious garments as wedding dresses or the dresses worn by babies in their first ultrasound photos. For their work, corporate headquarters presented Martinizing with the Rookie of the Year award in 2007, the Best Customer Service award in 2010 and 2012, and the Franchisee Leadership Award in 2012.
Pampered Pets Inn is a luxury boarding and interactive day care alternative for your dog or cat.
Our newly constructed, Tuscan inspired, 6,000 square foot facility is located on 2.25 beautiful acres. Your dogs get to romp and play for several hours every single day of the week.
Pampered Pets Inn owners Tony and Judy love spoiling dogs and cats. A passion that was once limited to their homes is now a full-time job at their plush, 6,000-square-foot pet-boarding facility, where cats and dogs enjoy a home away from home replete with familiar comforts. On the 2.5-acre property, dogs enjoy large and small pet suites, and cats stretch out in private and group condos complete with cat trees, scratching posts, and kitty beds. Pups frolic in a shallow, dog-friendly water park, and cats chase complimentary mouse toys.
The staff of attentive caretakers plays with all the pets each day, taking care to make sure each animal is comfortable and receiving enough love and attention. They also groom pets with nail-clipping, bathing, and blow-drying services so animals return home fresh, clean, and rested. While owners are gone, they can keep eyes on their pets with the inn's pet webcams, where they can watch beloved fluffies nap, play, and blow the family savings using bad stock-market advice.
The husband-and-wife team behind Sweet Dreams Mattress Furniture, Greg and Katy Law, stock their space with a simple goal in mind: to help their customers get a great night's sleep. Plush pillow-top and memory-foam mattresses line their show room, inviting visitors to kick their feet up and find the mattress that best suits their needs. The shop?s preferred mattress brands?including Tempur-Pedic, Serta, Simmons, and Southerland?design mattresses for a variety of sleep styles and preferences. Firm mattresses lend extra back support, and pillow-top mattresses cradle bodies with the softness of a grandmother cloud. Around the shop, bedroom sets, futons, linens, and pillows tempt a one-stop redecoration, which the store's own crew will promptly deliver to homes.
The certified instructors at Fox Hollow Farm wield more than 25 years of equine experience and broadcast that hard-earned knowledge during riding lessons in hunt seat, jumping, and dressage. Each instructor aims to foster a supportive environment of structured learning, helping their students build confidence and skills not only when in the saddle but also when caring for a horse in the stable or dressing up as a centaur on Halloween. Beginning students start out with private instruction on the longe line to develop balance and correct position atop the farm's school horses, and may advance to group lessons after they've learned to walk, trot, and canter with control.
Scampering through open fields of green grass to play with new friends sounds like the ideal life for most dogs. But some canines would rather stay away from the rowdiness, perhaps on a warm lap beneath a sturdy roof. The dog-loving caregivers at The Crate Escape, LLC know that different dogs have different personalities, and that's why they try their best to cater to each pup's desires. During overnight boarding and daily daycare, energetic dogs are given free rein of the facility's outdoor play area all day long, or they may retreat indoors for quiet time away from the midday heat. Dogs with smaller statures or quieter dispositions can stay inside if they'd like, or they can venture into their own designated outdoor area with the knowledge that they can come back indoors whenever they've had enough. All the while, staff members are in attendance to scratch an ear, fill a dinner bowl, and throw a frisbee to make sure their furry guests are relaxed and cared for. For overnighters, the handlers also make sure to grant the dogs a potty break first thing in the morning and before watching their nightly dog talk shows.
