Columbus residents can now experience a new realm of relaxation through hydration.
Rezilient Hope Hydration Salon, 3189 Hwy. 45. Suite J, officially opened on Wednesday.
Nurse practitioner Erica Horton and her husband Ronnie decided to open the vitamin infusion salon in their hometown after traveling for a few years.
âThere’s nothing like it here, so we decided to come home and put our roots down,â Horton said.
A first for Columbus, Rezilient is a moisturizer bar that offers customers customizable intravenous vitamin supplements. By injecting the vitamins directly into the bloodstream, clients receive the full impact of the treatments, vitamins and fluids, said Horton.
âRezilient Hope is a place where you can come to rehydrate and refresh yourself while relaxing in a lumbar massage chair in our quaint atmosphere,â she added.
Prices vary depending on the treatment you choose. Horton added that they offer a variety of concoctions, including if you’re dehydrated, lazy, or even have a hangover.
âThe biggest advantage is that I am a nurse practitioner so I can customize each infusion for exactly what you are looking for,â said Horton.
Rezilient is open Monday to Saturday by appointment only. Those interested can contact the company website or Facebook for more information and appointments.
Also in Columbus, a downtown restaurant is no longer open for lunch.
Gon Thai on Main Street updated their schedules at the end of November. Although now closed for lunch, people can still get their Thai fix Monday through Friday 5-10pm and Saturday 3-10pm.
Moving to Starkville, a new store opened just in time for the holidays.
Disc and That, 329 B University Drive, opened on Tuesday.
Owner Andy Hunt decided to merge his passion and his favorite work into one. After brainstorming, he concluded that disc golf was his passion and that working in retail was one of his favorite careers: opening a disc golf store was the simple answer.
âI’ve wanted to own my own business for a while,â Hunt said. ââ¦ With COVID pushing everyone outside, disc golf has exploded over the past two years. I think with the growth of Starkville along with the growth of the sport of disc golf, now is the time to open the store.
Make sure to check out Disc and That. Although this is primarily a disc golf store, just like the name, there is a bit of ‘disc and that’ to it. People can find lawn games and other outdoor activities such as cornhole, yard pong, kubb, ring toss, slackline obstacle course and more.
You can visit the new store from Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
