Since 1950, Gale’s Garden Center has spruced up local gardens with a variety of greenery, garden tools, and lawn décor. Every spring, their nursery overflows with locally grown yellow forsythia shrubs and pale pink weeping cherry trees. After entering, you can find helpful staff members scattered among the hydrangeas and fruit trees; they're ready to answer any questions about spring gardening for cool-weather plants. The store strives to stay up to date with the latest gardening wares. Organic lawn-care products keep lawns lush without using harsh toxins, and native plants become low-maintenance housing for birds, butterflies, and migratory lawn gnomes.
Tint-N-More’s technicians outfit rides with accessories of all kinds, from Solar Gard window films to custom sound systems. Front, back, and side glass goes from crystal clear to elegantly dark thanks to resistant tints that protect against sweltering temperatures and block dangerous glare from the sun and other nearby stars. The team also jazzes up wheels with custom rims and tires, paints designs across windows, and installs a range of electronics, including radios, speakers, and alarms.
One of the East Coast's best-known members-only wholesale retailers, BJ's Wholesale Club serves more than six million members in 201 clubs as far west as Ohio. Within these sprawling locations, savvy shoppers knock out most of their errands in a single stop. In the same visit, members can stock up on economy-sized groceries–including USDA choice meats, farm-fresh produce, and everyday essentials–grab name-brand electronics, get their vision checked at BJ's Optical, and even plan a vacation through BJ's Travel. Each service makes up a single part of the club's well-rounded retail experience, but simplifying shopping isn't BJ's Wholesale Club's only goal; in 2012 alone, the company donated more than $3.2 million to charitable organizations.
Cleveland Running Shoes's selection of footwear includes brands such as Adidas and Puma, which power runners during jogs, sprints, and races. Nourishing PowerBar and Clif Bar products also assist in propelling bodies through exercise regimens along with water-bottle belts and running apparel. In addition, the store’s staff teaches yoga for runners, so that students may someday learn to levitate and leave running behind entirely.
Led by dive master Scuba Steve, Buckeye Diving School's professional instructors have certified more than 9,000 divers since 1964—including Ohio celebrities Stefanie Schaeffer and Kenny Crumpton. Students can enroll in an open-water certification sequence to kick-start future careers as oceanic explorers or unsuccessful dunk-tank sitters. An orientation and four three-hour courses impart such fundamentals as buoyancy control, air sharing, and how to control ascents and descents. Each class divvies its time evenly between landlocked lessons and pool dives, and requires pupils bring or purchase their own mask, snorkel, boots, and fins (not included in this Groupon).
