UPS Stores collect packages for timely deliveries across town and around the globe, as well as streamline mail retrieval, photocopying, and other daily tasks. Prudent parcel packagers will safely stow shippables and help you choose an appropriate mailing solution, guaranteeing your item's safe arrival and standing ovation after the opening-night reception. For clerical tasks, visit a store and make 65 8"x11" color copies, or print off 315 black-and-white fliers to solicit a new flugelhorn player for your California Raisins cover band ($25). UPS also offers mailbox rentals with 24-hour access if your home mailbox is infested with bitter, obsolete fax machines ($29 for a three-month rental).
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.

Interstate All Battery Center leads the charge in power outposts, providing lifelong Texans and reserve-power road trippers with brand-new batteries for their trucks, cell phones, computers, and more. With a vast storehouse of more than 16,000 products, Interstate carries batteries for nearly every brand of laptop and PC, as well as a bevy of automotive batteries to restore sedans, coupes, and station wagons after a long night of headlight staring contests. Household powerables are also available, including 24-packs of Energizer AAs for bulk buyers, an Energizer 9V alkaline battery for metronomes possessed by surprisingly funky eighth notes, and one case of Lite Brite fuel, distilled from corn syrup and Olympic silver medals. Old used batteries find comfy retirement at Interstate’s recycling center, allowing their former owners and well-meaning grandchildren to rest easy.
Storage Pros Self Storage squirrels away customers' stuff in well-lit, fenced, and secure storage units. Rent a 5'x5' unit ($35–$75 depending on amenities and location) to stow away lumberjack costumes and papier-mâché blue oxen, or snag a 10'x20' nonclimate-controlled space for one month ($155–$201) to store 1 million Paul Bunyan Day flyers. Multiple locations offer storage spaces up to 400 square feet, and the Fairhaven facility has enough square footage to house a life-size replica of Shamu. Prices and availability can vary, so prospective packers should call ahead for details.
