After Hall's Window Center’s technicians install new windows, they wait a decade before declaring the job done. It’s not that they’re slow to react; rather, their handiwork comes backed by a ten-year workmanship guarantee. Since 1976, their team has earned clients’ trust not only with that commitment, but also with sturdy work, installing windows of all shapes and sizes by brands such as Renewal by Andersen. Beyond windows, the specialists can also enhance homes with new doors, siding, and stylish window blinds.
Dry Clean Today started with one location in Elk Grove in 1987 and has since expanded to 8 locations across the Sacramento area, including a brand new Folsom location. Open seven days a week, Dry Clean Today fastidiously expunges stains from favorite frocks and presses garments with haste, offering same- or next-day service. Professional cleaners also purge weather-borne impurities from raincoats or jackets, and keep fancywear spry with formal-gown or prom-dress cleaning. Otherwise, wedding-dress cleaning and box preservation keep sacred gowns in tiptop shape, ensuring that they can be passed down to children, grandchildren, or life-size Barbie dolls for use at their own weddings.
Since equipping the world with its first wood-slat recliner in 1928, La-Z-Boy has branded itself as a well-known producer of high-quality furniture, including their signature recliner, loveseats, ottomans, upholstered sofas, accent tables, and much more.

The staff members at Mr. Mattress don’t just want customers to peruse their stock; they want them to lie down on it. They know that their customers may end up spending half of their lives on whichever mattress they choose, so they let them take as much time as they need testing beds to find the right blend of support and comfort.
Judging from the store’s vast collection of spring, memory-foam, and eco-friendly latex mattresses, selecting just one might take more time than anticipated.

Heirloom French dressers. An unpolished Patina silver set with an ornate teapot and saucers. A bag of old skeleton keys. An aged wooden box with the words “Café de Paris” painted on it.

In addition to perusing the antique-stuffed store or attending monthly Market Day events brimming with other vendors, shoppers can learn how to create their own sought-after pieces during workshops.
