Business in brief


For the ninth year in a row, Puritan Cleaners is conducting a one-day-only community program that offers everyone in Richmond a free cleaning of one pair of pants. The event, called Free Pants Wednesday, will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 2. The offer is good at all 13 Puritan locations throughout the greater Richmond area with no strings attached. There are no minimums or other stipulations (other than suede and leather pants are excluded). This year, Puritan has partnered with the Richmond SPCA to help raise awareness for the Free Pants Wednesday program while also raising awareness for homeless kittens awaiting adoption at the Richmond SPCA’s humane center. The two organizations collaborated on a short movie which can be viewed at http://www.puritancleaners.com/community/free-pants-wednesday. This video is the latest in the light-hearted, low-budget, and intentionally campy videos associated with the Free Pants Wednesday program. Previous versions have featured racing at Richmond Raceway, ex-VCU basketball coach Shaka Smart, Todd “Parney” Parnell and the Flying Squirrels, and Bill Bevins and Shelly Perkins of Easy 100.9.

VHBG’s youth triathlon benefits organization and participants

Michael Harlow found a higher purpose when he discovered the Virginia Home for Boys and Girls in 2011. For four years since, Harlow and his company have played a major role in developing and managing an event that has become invaluable to the Virginia Home: the VHBG’s annual youth triathlon.

Harlow, the founder of Endorphin Fitness, first learned of the Virginia Home because his wife had a cousin who was a resident of the home years earlier. He did some research and visited the campus, and as soon as he learned the mission of the home, he was sold.
