The owners of Big Z Cleaners, Twin City Dry Cleaners, & Squeeky's Cleaners & Laundromat wash and dry-clean garments with environmentally friendly practices and a keen eye for detail honed over a span of 40 years. After dry-cleaning silk blouses, suits, or dress shirts stained with business-related marinara sauce, specialists press collars and cuffs and preserve their shapes with a customizable dose of starch. The team also carefully executes wash, dry, and fold services that conclude with exemplary folding and placement on hangers.

Scissors smith Terrell “Big T” Collins of The Cutting Edge Hair Design draws upon experience, a steady hand, and a keen eye to treat men to trim and polished cuts and skin-softening close shaves. Gentlemen can slide into a chair, where Terrell masterfully snips unkempt locks and transforms drab ‘dos according to client preferences. Like Rapunzel's publicity agent, perfectly sculpted crew cuts, fades, mohawks, or carefully ruffled coifs will draw attention to powerful hair as newly sharp gents strut from the shop. After trimming skyward strands, Big T can take to stubbly visages with a straightedge razor and hot lather, masterfully shooing away beards and mustaches and leaving skin sleek.
