At PDR Picture Frames & Gallery, framing treasured pictures and memorabilia is a family affair. Ross Pritchard and his kin size up clients' heirlooms and refrigerator doors, charting their exact dimensions to fashion decorative frames that display and protect. He and his staff utilize museum-grade conservation materials for added safekeeping. Not only a framesmith, Ross is also an accomplished artist whose paintings and pottery sit alongside other works in the location's gallery.

The Marble Slab Creamery sensory experience begins by just walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Gourmet ice creams are freshly crafted on site from Marble Slab’s original recipe, enticing customers’ eyes with a rainbow of colours. Once clients have made a flavour selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice cream chef then hand-folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavour masterpiece into a house-made waffle cone.
In addition to procuring handheld treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed half-litres, or in the capable hands of a catering team for sprucing up special events such as corporate get-togethers or school functions with portable marble slabs or sundae bars in tow.
Registered with the Ministry of Environment, Glenridge Cleaners refurbishes filthy fibres with the utmost professionalism and ecological responsibility. An experienced staff of amiable apparel polishers cleans, inspects, and crisply packages each article of clothing or household fabric before offering it tea and sending it off with a tearful goodbye. Crisp up a pair of pants ($7.60), or salvage a designer blouse not designed to sustain your niece's reckless ice cream-eating techniques ($7.60). The shop opens its doors six days a week to licentious two-piece suits ($18.95) and alfredo-dipped shirts ($2.95).
Since 1934, the staff at MacIntosh Dry Cleaners has groomed textiles with dry-cleaning, laundry, and specialized services.

After five years in business, Grant and Joe Sappy, co-founders and owners of K/W Lawn Care, are still trying to figure out who is the company’s president and who is the CEO. But the pair agrees on the company’s mission: to make their clients’ landscaping visions a reality. Drawing on the expertise of trained horticulturists, the Sappys help clients select the best plants and trees to meet their goals, and then install them using state-of-the-art equipment. In addition to cultivating relationships with architects and horticulturists, the Sappys partner with local providers to minimize the cost of materials such as mulch, fertilizer, or garden-gnome repellent. K/W Lawn Care maintains existing yards with services such as planting, weed control, and lawn cutting and fertilization as well as snow removal and holiday-lighting installations.
