Definitions Design Wear's stock rotates weekly with new selections in formal gowns, jeans, and swimwear available in sizes ranging from zero to 24. Intentionally buying stock in small quantities and staying away from wholesale distributors, the boutique strives to keep its customers garbed in fashions as unique as a snowflake's fingerprint. Keep cool with a tank top in classic white ($7.99–$24.99) or slip on an orange tank adorned with a festive ruffle for a walk along the beach with flip-flops in tow ($9.99). Trendsetters can dive into designer swimwear from brands including Polo, Burberry, and Gucci ($39.99–$79.99), or flaunt their bipedalism with stretchy leggings, pants, or trendy jeans ($11.99–$39.99). An array of 2,500 special-order formal-gown designs in a variety of hues and fits ($120+) helps gals gussy up for school dances and traffic court appearances. Customers can accessorize new ensembles with belts, bracelets, and necklaces ($9.99–$29.99), or store scoops of gelato in a luxurious Italian leather handbag ($149.99+).
Bows adorn diminutive yorkshire terriers as they await their owners, and the curious dark eyes of golden retrievers wander with happy curiosity across The Pet Pawlor. There, groomers trim, shape, and fluff fur of all types. Equipped with toothbrushes, oatmeal baths, and nail files, they can leave pups as clean and sweet-smelling as the family in the last scene of a detergent commercial. A combined two decades of experience helps the crew maintain a stress-free environment for the animals.

By establishing a partnership with each of their customers, the technicians at Advanced Equipment Inc. embellish and protect automotive chariots with an array of warrantied services.

In addition to ornamenting vehicles with custom vinyl graphics, car owners can protect paint jobs with Clear Bra, a translucent, urethane-based film that hugs the contours of a vehicle's forward-facing surfaces to guard against the ravages of road debris and sand. Technicians happily offer mobile service (additional charges may apply) and accept all vehicles, including buses, semitrucks, large vans, and carriages carved out of pumpkins.
In true family style, brothers Nick and Kirby Kuklenski own and operate two “sister” Ace Hardware stores in Colorado Springs, keeping local homes beautiful with name-brand products and services. Lawns grow thick and colorful with Scotts fertilizers, plants, and seeds from the shops’ lawn departments, whereas computerized color matching in the paint aisles keeps outsides as vibrantly hued as flowers in a garden or a house fly strolling across an artist’s palette. Collections of DeWalt and Craftsman hand and power tools help homeowners assemble Weber grills, with staffers standing at the ready to build any piece bought at the store. Even autos can get in on Ace Hardware’s helpful services: keys are cut onsite, with Sidewinder keys including built-in chips that interact with car computers to ensure proper starts without feeding vehicles buckets of floppy disks.
