YOTO Community Thrift Store bustles with all kinds of hand-me-downs: desks, chairs, books, and racks of clothing. YOTO stands for Youth of the Ozarks, and the store honors its namesake by donating its proceeds after expenses to local children’s charities such as the Springfield Boys & Girls Club and the Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland. The hardworking team behind YOTO helps bring in new items each day, ensuring a rotating stock of gently used home goods and clothing. They also drive to homes to pick up larger donated items such as beds, dining-room tables, and taxidermied jungle cats.
We have everything for the home recreation room: pool tables, shuffleboard, ping pong tables, foosball tables, air hockey, darts dartboards, and parts and supplies for these. We also carry home decor, artwork and furniture such as poker tables, pub tables, bars, and bar stools.
Ray's New and Used stocks reasonably priced clothing, video games, and household items in a showroom packed from floor to ceiling. Peruse the racks for a new corduroy jacket or skim the shelves for a gently used mystery novel. Ray's New and Used even showcases a plethora of VHS tapes, featuring family-friendly flicks and Disney films for the retro-electronics enthusiasts.
Supplying all types of social gatherings with entertainment-enhancing games and activities, Springfield Party Rental stocks a sprightly set of family-friendly bouncy houses, big-shot-belittling dunk tanks, or six-person laser-tag sets. Though this deal is valid for the standard bouncer, rocketing ricocheters can upgrade to a themed castle, such as Bob the Builder or the Clown Bouncer (an additional $25), or land a bounce-and-slide combo to really rile up guests at your city-council-overthrow fundraiser (an additional $100). Party planners can take the initiative to pick up, set up, and take down their own rentals (the job requires two adults, and is easy with three), and the dunk tank is towable with a 2" hitch. However, professional delivery and pick-up are also available at a flat rate of $60 within 10 miles, and $3 per loaded mile after that—similarly, setup and takedown are an additional fee.
The state-of-the-art, hospital-grade infrared saunas at Detox Haven help the clients who recline in their private confines to liquify fat and cellulite while eliminating toxins and heavy metals. The saunas send far-infrared energy washing over bodies to increase their core temperatures in an effort to purge the body of impurities without resorting to the stifling humidity of steam or lava rooms. Each session may burn 600-900 calories. Clients can work or read as soothing heat eases muscle aches and chromotherapy lights flash across bodies for extra pain relief. Each sauna also contains an iPod dock or CD player to keep ears occupied. After multiple sessions, clients may notice slimmer waistlines, greater senses of well-being, and the ability to melt snow before it reaches the ground.
