Renovia’s base of activities can be found in Boston.

Renovia currently only has one drug that has been FDA approved.

From Manhattan to the West Coast, The RealReal takes Los Angeles

Melrose has joined the ranks of New York City, at least according to the The RealReal luxury consignment company. The San Francisco-born resale giant opened their second permanent brick-and-mortar store in July on Melrose Avenue. The originally online-based company emphasizes their uniqueness in that everything is professionally authenticated and priced at market value, appealing to buyers of all kinds who may have missed out on coveted pieces of runways past, or those who simply want to own designer apparel at a lower-than-original-retail price. The RealReal first entered the physical world last year with the opening of their original brick-and-mortar store in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood with huge success, leading to pop-up shops in Las Vegas and San Francisco.

The opening of this second store in Los Angeles brings with it the opportunity to see and touch the pieces that would normally just be shown in photographs on the company’s website. The new store space features 12,000-square-feet of floor space to showcase their selection of the most coveted brands from Chanel to Dior, Balenciaga, Rolex, and, yes, even those exclusive Birkin bags, which will reside in the boutique’s 1,500-square-foot handbag vault. The Melrose location also features a 5,500-square-foot men’s store with its own separate entrance, another differentiation from the SoHo store. That’s not even to mention the sit-and-stay aesthetic the new shop will feature. The Melrose location has an outdoor sitting space, a café, CaféCafé, that will serve coffee, juices, salads, and more, and even a whiskey bar, to fuel shoppers.

If selling designer pieces is what you’re after, The RealReal offers free, no obligation authentication. So, if you just want to know if that Chanel Boy bag you inherited from your grandmother is, in fact, the “RealReal” deal, you can utilize The RealReal’s curbside pickup service, in home evaluation, by appointment, or in-store services, all done by their professionally trained authenticators. And don’t just clean out your closet. The RealReal also consigns home decor, furniture, and artwork. Other services such as watch repair, jewelry cleaning, and handbag conditioning are also set to be included at the new Melrose store.

Aloha Construction Reaches New Construction Project Milestone In 2018

When roof and siding season hits in Illinois and southern Wisconsin homeowners often turn to Aloha Construction to repair the damage. This company is licensed, bonded, and has been providing construction services for 10 years. They introduced an interior restoration service in May 2018, a service they have been doing since they started but have never intentionally marketed until now.

President and Chief Executive Officer David Farbaky says that it was in 2013 when his company passed the milestone of having completed 7000 construction projects. In 2018 his company, which he is also the founder of, passed the 20,000 construction project mark. He says that to keep up with the demand he opened a second office in Bloomington, Illinois, in 2015. His original office in Lake Zurich and this new office now have a comparable workload.

David Farbaky says that the goal at Aloha Construction has always been about making homeowners feel safe in their homes. They offer free quotes and can get to work right away when a home experiences damage. They have been doing kitchen and bath remodels for years. They now offer other interior services like restoration, water extraction, and clean-up. His company is a one-stop construction company which can secure homes and improves them as well.

Aloha Construction has a great reputation as a firm that treats each of its customers in an ethical and forthright way. This commitment to being fair in their dealing resulted in their local BBB chapter honoring them with the 2017 Torch Award For Marketplace Ethics. This is an award given to businesses that show industry leadership, solid business practices, and that benefit the broader community through being socially responsible.

There are six criteria for earning this award. One of these criteria is giving back to people who live where a company does business. Aloha Construction has supported a number of nonprofits and youth sports leagues over the past decade. One example of this is when Aloha Construction partnered with Omi Youth Services. A family was chosen to have a 60-second shopping spree at an area toy store. This family, which was a single mother and four young children, managed to grab $7,000 worth of items which made for a very merry Christmas for them.
