For more than half a century, Mill Stores has dispensed an enormous array of high quality, ready-to-finish wood furniture and accents to enhance homestead comfort. As a factory-finished solid-oak rocker ($249.99) supports reclining spines, a three-step stool ($19.77), crafted from solid eastern white pine, aids customers in accessing difficult to reach shelves filled with stashes of candy and bacon fat. Stockpile bottles of grapey goodness in a solid wood Tuscany wine box ($39.99) or artfully arrange CDs and DVDs in the sliding separators of a solid pine rack ($23.99). A shingled-roof doghouse ($179.99) shelters canines in safe, cozy pine, and a cast-stone scroll birdbath ($49.88) cleanses neighboring loons and fallen airplane peanuts in its stylish cement surface. Shoppers unable to find their desired décor in stock can request customized designs, which Mill Stores crafts in two weeks or less.

Chiropractors at Specific Chiropractic Centers coast to coast get their clients walking tall with advanced spine-straightening technology. They pinpoint spinal abnormalities with an advanced thermographic scan that sends heat cascading through problem areas, allowing the professionals to make an informed diagnosis. From there, they deploy their chiropractic method to fix upper-cervical kinks and restore neural functionality. The goal is to perform as few adjustments as possible both to respect clients' schedules and to carve out more time for practitioners to work on their puppeteer careers.
Bonos Pizzeria Grille puts its own gourmet spin on Italian culinary tradition.

They also layer pizzas with specialty toppings such as fig jam and hand-picked lobster before firing the pies over flaming Maine hardwoods. A children’s menu offers kid-friendly options like peanut butter and jelly pizza.
Woks have sizzled in the kitchen of Chia Sen Chinese Restaurant ever since 1998, when the Wu family—originally from Taiwan—first opened the restaurant.

Each dish is made to order, and is flavored with fragrant spices rather than MSG. Gluten-free and vegetarian menus are available. Pair your meal with one of the spot's specialty cocktails.
