They’ve been in the Valley for decades, turning your imagination and budget into the outdoor oasis of your dreams. Steve’s got a few improvements for your car and Felecia attempts to cover 20 improvements that you can make around the house. Does she make it through all of them? You’re gonna have to watch. Episode Recap FRIENDLY TAKEAWAYS: Keep your car sanitized during the COVID crisis Staying home more? Build an Oasis in your backyard The housing market is hot, but loan approvals are tricky. As COVID-19 Booms in Arizona, Keep Your Car Safe COVID-19 is making a huge comeback here in Arizona. Friendly Auto Centers has a couple new products to help disinfect your car.
