Swiss army knives are famed for the many vital tools hidden in the nooks and crannies of their surprisingly small exterior; Star Performance Complex takes a similar approach to educating kids in fitness. Their instructors offer swimming, gymnastics, tae kwon do, and dance lessons to tykes who enjoy competitive athleticism. They also provide day and night care that combines structured activity with open play in their fun gyms, which feature not only gymnastics equipment but inflatable play houses. Other teachers focus on team sports, training kids to work together in softball, soccer, and cheer. All of this – excepting the swim lessons – takes place in their single, colorful facility full of squeaky hardwood, soft mats, and all the equipment a kids needs to build a strong body.
At The Gas Stop's more than 20 locations across Minnesota and South Dakota, customers can pull into automated car-wash bays, where their cars receive beautifying polishes and foam baths. Gas pumps stand by to replenish tanks, and an indoor deli sates customer appetites for everything from coffee and ice cream to taquitos and salads. The Gas Stop supports good causes throughout its communities, such as the Land O' Lakes Save Five for Schools program, which helps increase school budgets while bringing high-fives back into the K–12 curriculum.
All manner of monsters prowl the halls of the Sioux Falls Jaycees Haunted House. Sadistic clowns smile from shadowed corners, herding visitors into a blood-spattered room where a ghoul in a straitjacket waits. Strobe lights and fog convince the senses that they've entered an otherworldly dimension or a very dusty camera, concealing the ghastly robotics and props lurking around each bend—such as a leering, demonic child named Hex. Though the attraction seeks to terrify, its ultimate goal is far more altruistic: ticket profits go to the Sioux Falls Jaycees, a community-service group whose volunteers don masks and gallons of fake blood to staff the entire house.

For more than 50 years, the employees at Get N Go Car Wash—a division of the locally owned Get N Go fuel and convenience stations—have found ways to make people's lives easier.

Some Get N Go locations even offer fresh mixed salads and wraps for hungry, health-conscious travelers or SUVs trying to diet down to compact-car size.
Best Choice's carpet cleaning uses an all-natural, residue-free formula to clean up filthy carpets. Its encapsulation cleaner coats any leftover dirt or particles in a quick-drying crystal that's easily removed with normal vacuuming, meaning that rooms dry in one to two hours instead of one to two fortnights. Choose three rooms (up to 275 square feet total, about the size of one 8'x9' and two 10'x10' bedrooms, or one huge, carpeted rave dance floor) and remove the furniture in preparation. Even with regular vacuuming, carpet can still manage to store up vast amounts of grime and filth, exactly like the members of KISS. Unlike aging rockers, however, it can easily be restored to a pristine state with today's deal.
