The store stocks over 1,200 frames from brands such as Guess, Prada, and Calvin Klein. For lenses, treatment options such as photochromatic auto-tinting and anti-reflective coating protect eyes from harsh rays and nightly tussles with the paparazzi.
A lock is a comparatively small part of a door, but a door doesn't keep out much more than the wind without a lock. The technicians at Stoddart's Lock And Safe install and repair that minute, yet all-important, mechanism on doors of all kinds. They install the classic metal hardware in addition to security-related systems such as home alarms, garage-door openers, and intercoms and buzzers. They also restore vandalized automobile locks to working condition and laser-cut extra sets of car keys in their store. From simple padlocks to vehicle transponder keys, the techs are prepared for nearly every type of job, though they also equip car- and homeowners with the hardware necessary to launch do-it-yourself projects.
Bead Bar's bead baristas guide jewelry crafters with a wealth of bauble knowledge, provisioning projects from the amply stocked store. Students can bring their own spirited refreshments to make sessions merrier, journeying past bead-bedazzled walls and cascades of clasps to reach the workshop, where they'll discover the basics of jewelry creation during basic stringing and crimping classes (click here to view the schedule). After pupils choose one of five bracelet kits—which include a clasp, four fire-ball beads, finishing beads, wire, wire guards, and a strand of firepolish beads—instructors model foundational stringing techniques and imbue new crafters with a sense of symmetry and color combinations. Bracelet makers learn how to highlight feature beads and artfully select accent beads, then take an oath to use filler beads only for fighting crimes of bare-wristedness. To bring closure to both classes and adornments, the staff imparts advice on selecting clasps to make sure bracelets can't leave wrists or ankles without asking permission first.
In 1950, John Searcy loaded up his pickup truck with car batteries and began peddling his wares to wholesalers. Two years later, John formalized his operation and began Interstate All Battery Center, a battery retailer and service center that spans the continent from Austin to Anchorage powering cars, hearing aids, and cameras. Interstate All Battery Center charges gadgets and vehicles with more than 16,000 types of power solutions, and eases environmental taxes on the planet with a robust battery-recycling system. In a year, Interstate All Battery Center recycled 850 million pounds of batteries—just enough energy to grant immortality to one Furby.
