Align Pilates Center
Not far from the rock’n’roll excitement of Swallow’s Inn lies Nicole Howard and Cara Fraser’s serene Align Pilates Center. Walk through the doors and you are immersed in a tranquility that allows you to focus on healing and strengthening your body.
Fraser and Howard's motto: “We are focused on the quality of movement, not just the quantity of exercise.”
Align Pilates offers private classes and varying hourly rates if you sign up with a friend or group.
Fraser and Howard have worked together since attending Long Beach State 13 years ago and have been teaching Pilates eight years.
“We give an assessment, a history of Pilates and a basic session for first-timers,” Howard said.
Cash for Gold
Located next to Tannins on Ortega Highway, Gold Max sports its bright “Cash for Gold” sign to lure customers willing to part with silver, diamonds, gold, flatware, tea sets and other valuables.
The San Juan Capistrano location is one of nearly 200 Gold Max stores nationwide.
O’Reilly Auto Parts
Next time you hear the “Oh, oh, oh, O’Reilly” jingle on the radio, you can put a face to the name with San Juan's new O’Reilly Auto Parts store.
Taking over the old Sizzler location, the chain store opened its doors Sept. 23, according to manager Daniel Garcia.
The company signed a 15-year lease on the property, which was originally supposed to become an In-N-Out restaurant. But the parcel didn't have enough parking for the burger joint.
