58 SEPTEMBER 20 - 26, 2017 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM GOODS & SERVICES GOODS & SERVICES Best Convention Venue Crown Complex 1960 Coliseum Dr. (910) 438-4100 or www.crowncomplexnc.com If there's a major event happening in the area, it's probably happening at the Crown Complex. For Cumberland County, the Crown is a popular venue for a multitude of community gather- ings and celebrations. We associate this venue with graduation day, amaz- ing concerts, great hockey and indoor football games, ice shows, gun shows, local shows, dance recitals and, of course, Cumberland County Fair. Since 1997, the Crown, now managed by Spectum, has been serving the Fayetteville and Cumberland County community. It is currently home to the Fayetteville Marksmen ice hockey team, the Holly Day Fair, Community Con- certs, WIDU's anniversary party and the All-American Tattoo Convention. Managing major events and huge crowds of people is no easy task, but, General Manager Jim Grafstrom and his staff of highly trained professionals make it look easy. They pull off each event with grace and style, bringing great entertainment experiences close to home. The Crown is comprised of five venues, including the 4,500-seat arena, the 9,200 square-foot ballroom, the 10,880-seat coliseum, the 60,000-square-foot ex- position center and the 2,440-seat theatre.

Best Day Spa Renaissance European Day Spa 1534 Purdue Dr. or 860 Elm St. (910) 484-9922 or www.therenaissancedayspa.com In Fayetteville and the surrounding area, just the name Renaissance Day Spa induces a feeling of rest and relaxation. A Best of Fayetteville winner year after year, this spa has become synonymous with luxury. Renaissance European Day Spa was Fayette- ville's original day spa. The staff here has always be- lieved in health and wellness, but they realized that sometimes everyone deserves a little pampering. Renaissance hires only the best and then invests in keeping them trained in the newest technology and techniques in relaxation. That alone might be enough for some businesses, but not at the Renaissance. No matter how many services a spa may offer, it means nothing if you don't leave happy. Here, you are treated like royalty.

Best Advertising Specialties Carolina Specialties International 525 Gillespie St. (910) 323-0718 or www.carolinaspecialties.com Carolina Specialties International was found- ed in 1988 with the goal of meeting the need for local promotional materials created by a local advertising agency. CSI met those needs and created a niche for itself in the area by adding other products and services. The company has grown and changed over the years, but it's stayed true to its founding principle of hard work. Like the Little Engine that Could, CSI has persevered and built a well-deserved name for itself. And it has no plans to slow down. This is a company continuously looking to grow and expand. In fact, it has absorbed Formula K Enterprise. For now, CSI offers custom screen printing, embroidery, awards and recogni - tions, and promotional products in the Fayetteville and Wilmington areas. Own- ers Ann Marie Swilley and Stephen Haire continue to serve these communities with a dedicated team to offer the best promotional products. Best Mortgage Company Wells Fargo Bank 4200 Morganton Rd. # 102 (910) 867-9104 or www.wellsfargo.com Cumberland County homeowners have come to trust Wells Fargo as their mortgage loan company. Maybe it's because this national company shares values similar to those held by people right here in Fayetteville. If you work here, you'll not be called an employee — you'll be called a team member — "because our people are resources to be invested in, not expense to be managed, and because team work is essential to our success in helping customers," according to its site. Wells Fargo also understands that public trust is earned, not expected, and staff members are trained not just in baking but in behaving ethically, communicating transparently and being responsible and ac - countable for their decisions. Wells Fargo values its employees as members of the team, its integrity as its reputation, its diversity as necessity and its leadership as a grassroots effort.
