“I bought a wedding gown at Little White Dress Bridal Shop in 2013. Sadly, my fiancé passed away from cancer a few months later. In 2014, I decided to donate my dress to an organization that helps fund weddings for couples facing terminal illnesses. When I told Little White Dress about this, they donated another dress along with mine and paid for the shipping for both. I was touched by such a generous gesture and by their stellar (post) customer service and goodwill.” lwdbridal.com

“I go to Heather England [at European Wax Center’s Cornerstar Way location in Aurora] because my wife likes when I get groomed. I trust Heather with my brows and nose, and she is really cool. She makes me feel manly even though I am getting waxed. She is fun and professional, and I trust her completely. I even let her wax my chest once. That is trust.” waxcenter.com
