Grown from two small shops to 28 locations by the sweat equity of a hard-working father-and-son team, McGee Tire’s open-air bays now proudly display the cobalt and maize décor signifying their status as authorized Goodyear dealers. Skilled hands outfit hoisted cars with conventional and standard oil while computerized systems recalibrate tires, brake service secures stoppers, and transmission tune-ups correct gear-bound problems. At the core of full-scale commercial fleet services, a specialized shearography machine helped earn McGee Auto Service & Tire a mention on Modern Tire Dealer's Top 100 Retreaders in the U.S. list. Oversize vehicle service also caters to recreational drivers, with RV service including repairing electrical systems, recalibrating drive trains, and restocking the feedback of the horn's onboard bugler.

Bill Jackson's Shop for Adventure is a full-service outfitter providing adventure apparel and instruction to outdoor enthusiasts. With this deal, Grouponers can choose between a lesson in recreational or sea kayaking to fulfill their nautical needs.

In the 3-hour recreational lesson, aspiring aqua navigators will practice entries, reentries, rescues, and paddle techniques. To avoid insidious dolphin pranks, lessons are held in the heated indoor pool and the on-site lake.
