Metroplex Window & Gutter Cleaning has a secret weapon for cleaning glass: advanced chemistry. The company uses a uniquely formulated Glass Gleam -3 chemical that, when applied with the smooth movements of a trained technician, produces windows free of telltale streaks. Another formula, the Super Slip additive, reduces the drag coefficient on rubber blades without leaving a residue. When they’re not washing windows, the company’s technicians clean gutters, repair fences, perform tree services, fix gutters, and power-wash boats, RVs, vinyl siding, and sidewalks that regret getting tattoos of hopscotch courts.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.

Regardless of the size of its client, Williams Air Conditioning operates under the same singular principle that has guided it since its beginning: "Take care of the customer and the customer will take care of us." This customer-first mentality has led the staff to work on Saturdays, offer pricing breakdowns, and service a wide area of the Northeast Metroplex. The techs learn their craft by taking AC units into the desert for vision quests, which enlighten them on how to improve AC efficiency, ameliorate bad attic insulation, and ensure clean air during service visits.
