An authorized AT&T retailer, AT&T Portables sets itself apart from the crowd with customer-service-oriented staffers who guide shoppers through the process of picking phones and accessories from an extensive inventory. Each employee is well versed in the bells and whistles of the latest smartphones from Apple, Samsung, Blackberry, and Nokia, helping shoppers translate tech specs into real-world pros and cons. Customers’ chosen phones are accompanied by a range of protective and stylish accessories, as well as cellular plans that provide an appropriate amount of minutes, text messages, and bandwidth for sending and receiving urgent cat videos.
The staff at Fashion Time hold time itself in their hands, in the form of their store’s collection of eye-catching watches. At locations throughout Maryland and Virginia, they repair watches in addition to pairing customers’ wrists with low- and high-end watches from name-brand designers, such as Edifice, Kimio, Seiko, and Citizen. Customers can also peruse the store’s inventory on its comprehensive website, with shipping available nationwide. Already-purchased watches can be registered online through an easy submission form or a more difficult smoke-signal pattern.
As a kid, following your nose inexplicably led to a bowl of Froot Loops in a suspicious rusty cage. Now that your olfactory system has matured, you'll likely find today's deal at the end of your scent trail. For $25, you get $50 to spend on handmade, natural bath and skincare products at Melt. You can browse virtually on the Internet, but this Groupon is only redeemable at Melt's eight retail locations. Melt's moderate prices afford you the opportunity to purchase multiple last-minute holiday gifts for mail carriers, moms, and people you forgot about, while still having enough left to use in a MacGyver-esque escape plan.
