At Bike Link of Hoover, general manager Joe Wenning and his cycling-inclined staff outfit riders with new bicycles and tune up bikes of all brands. Visitors peruse rides from Specialized, Electra, Felt, Raleigh, Cervelo and Redline, all available for onsite test rides and fittings. In the repair shop, technicians optimize bikes with everything from minor break adjustments to complete details and tune-ups, and can even be called upon to clean and wax bikes too shy to bathe outdoors.

After the final flash, clients and a team member head to the viewing kiosk, where they can select their photos and customize them. Beyond traditional printed portraits, memories may also be preserved on high-resolution CD, gallery wraps, wall art, or through JCPenney Portraits' archival program, which allows clients to store and share their portraits online.
With more than 386 locations dotting North America, JCPenney Optical's ubiquity is matched only by its extensive selection of contact lenses and designer frames that includes brands such as Armani Exchange, Liz Claiborne, and Nicole Miller. Despite this wide reach, all lenses are cut at the same optical laboratory, ensuring a consistency of quality and a pretty good idea of where to look if your glasses run away from home. Each location has an independent state-licensed doctor of optometry, who can perform vision exams and help clients determine which type of vision correction will work best.
Premium Home Whitening's kits take trips to the dentist out of smile-brightening equations with FDA-approved gels. After soaking in heated water, plastic mold-and-bite trays become as pliable as the linguine noodles floating beneath them. The ductile tooth helmets press against the upper and lower ridges, molding to enamel outlines. Patients coat the impressions in U.S.-made carbamide-peroxide gel, then bite into them while clutching a micro LED light between their lips. The at-home treatment can blanch choppers up to five shades. Premium Home Whitening also sells handy dental gadgets such as a portable teeth-whitening pen and a sonic toothbrush with a UV light to exterminate bacteria.
