Since 1973, Master Cleaners has tidied garments using time-tested laundering techniques and the latest water-free cleansers. Staffers greet soiled outfits with a thorough sudsing, folding sheets into neat squares and erasing spots from shirts, jeans, and giraffes. The shop also cleans bulky items such as bedspreads and sleeping bags, returning them at a convenient drive-thru window. Dry cleaning removes set-in stains from delicate items such as business suits and silk dresses. To make duds look as sharp as possible, an expert tailor will close holes, replace loose buttons, or add googly eyes for a nominal fee.
Whipping up hearty, generous portions for more than 35 years, the Hickory Pit Too offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner for patrons in need of tummy TLC.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
Balloons-A-Plenty cobbles colorful mylar and latex balloons into festive bouquets for a variety of occasions.

Unique balloon-stuffing services ($10) can wrap gifts and treats into a large, see-through balloon and bow, and a heart-shaped Valentine's gift basket ($15.99) showcases a teddy bear, flower, and candy. The store can deliver items within a 20-mile radius ($10), sparing customers from having to grease the wheels on their horse-drawn chariots.
Like a Swiss Army knife of pet care, Heart of Dixie Veterinary Clinic is many different things in one, including a vet, a kennel, and a groomer.

They also keep an eye of furry family members during day and overnight boarding visits, as well as work alongside local company Kritter Sitters to offer baths, brushes, and many other grooming options.
