Upscale Children’s Resale at Kid to Kid

It's kind of funny how kids grow up so quickly. One minute they're barely scooting across the living room floor; the next minute they're at the DMV taking their driving test. Along the way, they outgrow clothes and toys so fast, it's hard to keep up.

At Kid to Kid, an upscale children's resale store at 2324 Poplar Drive in Medford, they've solved that problem for you. Owners Kori and Michael Forney, who moved to the Rogue Valley from San Jose in 1997, bought the franchise in 2011 as soon as they heard it was for sale.

A Family Affair at Erickson Dental Care

When it comes to family-operated businesses, it's hard to beat Erickson Dental Care, located at 1224 NE 7th St in Grants Pass. Dr. Mart Erickson opened his practice in 1979 and moved into his current location on the day his son Sten was born in 1984. Sten grew up in the practice all his life, cleaning the office and doing the outdoor landscaping as a kid.

Sten was valedictorian when he graduated from Grants Pass High School in 2003 and went off to college and dental school, where he met his wife, Rachel, also a dental student. After getting married, Sten and Rachel moved back to Grants Pass and joined Mart in the practice. Mart's wife Linn also works in the office as a dental hygienist.

Pet Care and Comfort at Home Away from Home

When it comes down to it, owning a pet is almost like having a child. When you want to go on vacation, you just can't take Foofoo with you to the condo in Cabo san Lucas. And you can't leave him at home. It's necessary to find a babysitter or make some other kind of arrangement, and it can be a major hassle.
Which is where Home Away from Home Pet Spa, located at 100 NE Mill Street, comes in handy. Owner Sandra Mazurek has a passion for the care and training of dogs and cats and expresses this passion in her business.

Action Hair Designs Celebrates 37 Years

It’s been a long and winding road the last 37 years for Linda Whalen, owner of Action Hair Designs at 937-A NE D Street (in back of the Grants Pass Shopping Center). “I first walked through Action Hair Designs as one of its first employees in 1977,” Linda said. “When the original owner moved in 1990, I bought the salon.”
Linda moved to the Rogue Valley in 1960 with her family when her dad retired from the Marine Corps and moved here.
“I was 13 at the time, and as a teen it seems I was ‘in charge’ of my mom’s, sister’s, grandmother’s and any other family member’s hair who came through the kitchen door,” she said. “It only seemed natural that after graduating from Grants Pass High that I would start my training in a new beauty school that had just opened its doors in Grants Pass.”
