The start of a year rings in newness and change, but one thing that remains the same: your local Northwest Arkansas businesses ready to serve you, help keep those resolutions and start the year with your best foot forward.

You can find all of these local businesses and more on Towny, the free and easy way to explore Northwest Arkansas, choose local, and get rewarded for doing so! (PS - take Towny with you on the go by downloading the free Towny app to your phone!)

Fitness first, of course

New Year, New You, New style

Polish Nail Studio

Polish Nail Studio

  • Sister salons Fancy Nails in Fayetteville and Polish Nails in Springdale are two posh nail studios that look like they sprung straight off Pinterest. Both these boutique-y salons specialize in gel, acrylic, and dipped nails and skin care services. In other words, they are masters at spoiling the heck out of you. Nailed it.

  • A new year is THE perfect excuse for a little shopping spree, and BOARDROOMboutique is THE perfect place to go. Especially if “ dress suburban chic” made your 2019 To-Do List. And working ladies, get ready to impress because Boardroom Boutique specializes in classy + trendy business outfits.

  • Forsake not the men, especially those inclined toward hog-calling: Stadium Shoppe holds all the Razorback getup and gear you could ever dream of. So start your new year in Sooie style!

White River Nursery

  • Finally ready to part ways with that uber comfy but seen-better-days couch from college? At The Green Box Furniture & More, it’s out with the old, in with the new (or used) furniture + home decor. Their inventory changes daily and with these kinds of prices, your budget will stay un-busted. Until you fall in love with all their pieces and decide the whole house needs a makeover…you’ve been warned!

  • If 2019 is the year you resolve to finally keep a plant baby alive for more than three days, you’re in luck, my friend. White River Nursery specializes in plants that thrive in the Ozarks...which means you’re that much closer to that green thumb you’ve always dreamed of. YOU GOT THIS!

Celebrate good times

Me Latte Chocolate

Me Latte Chocolate

  • Whether you’re cheers-ing the New Year or farewell-ing the old, raise up one of El Matador’s famous margs...or a big bowl of queso, if that’s more to your liking. Whatever your reason and preference of season(ing), El Matador’s authentic and fresh Mexican cuisine fits every occasion!

  • In the midst of looking forward and reflecting on the past, take a moment to appreciate the present. You’ll find the perfect atmosphere (and menu items!) to do just that at Me Latte Chocolate. Nothing like a big ol’ scoop of homemade ice cream or a toasty warm creative coffee concoction to help you sit back, relax and savor the moment.
