CornerMarket ratchets up the typical car wash experience by offering a quick, touch-free wash. The Works wash begins by blasting undercarriages and presoaking each road baby with a two-step heated detergent. After applying a high-impact wash with tri-foam conditioner, the robotic clean machine will scrub away any debris caused by tracking massive flocks of taco-eating migratory birds. Clear coat protectant and Rain-X surface sealant coats your car in a protective blanket of swaddled shine, and a final spot-free rinse and two-minute dry reveal a revitalized exterior.

A sustainable and community-supported farm collective, First Hand Harvest packs up bushels of broccoli, bok choi, and other organic earth candies for herbivores seeking a locally grown alternative to the supermarket shelf. Three individual family farms combine their crops to deliver a large variety of vegetable options, so customers can expect a soil-grown surplus of greens, reds, and yellows in each weekly half-bushel box. As vegetable assortments are local and seasonal, customers can embrace the thrilling uncertainty of not knowing whether their box will contain arugula, brussels sprouts, or animatronic cucumbers. Most boxes will also contain a healthy cooking green, such as swiss chard or kale, along with recipes and suggestions for culinary pairings.
Doctors Vincent Facchiano and Jillian Phelps ogle oculars and inspect irises with thorough examinations and cutting-edge technology. During the eye exam, an optometrist will check the internal and external health of your peepers before administering a series of visual acuity tests to assess your visual coordination and focus ability. The comprehensive exam also includes a glaucoma test and a digital retinal photograph, which provides a high-resolution retina head shot, perfect for aspiring ocular stars and optical comedians. The eyeball-focused photograph checks for macular degeneration, retinal detachments, and optic-nerve disease. If contact lenses are recommended, patients will receive a complimentary contact-lens fitting, after which they can outfit their orbs with a pair of pupil-huggers chosen from the expansive eye emporium, which features more than 1,000 lenses of varying brands.
