Wax On, Wax Off

A new car is like a newborn baby.

When you first bring it home, it smells better and looks cleaner than it ever will again.

Give your car the TLC it deserves — and the thorough wash it probably needs — at the newly opened Simon’s Shine Shop. So much more than a skeevy run-of-the-mill carwash, service options here include the Just Fine Shine (a basic hand wash), the Wine & Dine Shine (a little extra attention for special occasions), and the To the Nines Shine (everything a car could want).

And since Simon’s knows that you’re not the average car owner (only the best for your baby), the waiting room has been fine-tuned to your liking: slate floors, plush leather chairs, fresh coffee, and a robust selection of the latest mags. It’s as spotless on the inside as your car will be on the outside.

After all, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
