The new year is an excellent time to bring some other newness into your life. Sometimes we need to cut ties with the same tired things and start fresh. There are several areas in life people could typically use an upgrade — a new ride, a new phone, a new wardrobe. Several metro businesses can help shoppers start 2018 on the right foot.

Grandma’s Christmas sweaters are not going to be enough to save the drabbest wardrobes. If gifted holiday clothing items weren’t sufficient to take you into 2018, consider picking out a few of your own favorites at Rosegold. The local boutique carries elegant everyday wear for women including tops, bottoms, dresses, accessories and more. Those who take advantage of the year-opening storewide sale in mid-January can fill their closet for a fraction of the price.

Jackie Cooper BMW

14145 N. Broadway Ave., Edmond


How many times have you looked out into the street and winced at the sight of your own parked car? How many times have you hoped against all hope that this won’t be the time your old jalopy dies in the middle of Northwest Expressway? If the answer to either of those questions is “a lot,” it might be time to get a reliable vehicle. The fine sales staff at Jackie Cooper BMW can pair shoppers with the perfect new or used car to fit their lifestyle needs.

Orthodontic Arts

421 NW 10th St.


The best way to enter any new year is with a smile. Dr. David Birdwell and Orthodontic Arts use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to treat every patient, and flexible payment plans make visits more affordable. Check in to the Midtown office for a free complimentary screening where you can get a custom treatment plan for 2018. Be it braces, retainers or Invisalign, Orthodontic Arts will have you beaming in no time.

Bona Vision Eye Center

2421 N. Classen Blvd.


Can you read this without pressing your glasses back up on your nose? For those wearing a pair of spectacles beyond the scope of minor household repair, it might be a good idea to upgrade at Bona Vision Eye Center. Whether a customer is just looking for stylish frames or something that can help bring that blurry computer screen into focus, the Bona Vision experts are there to assist. In addition to her work at Bona Vision, optometrist Dr. Irene Lam can often be spotted doing vision screenings at local schools, businesses and other organizations.

CDR Electronics

5939 Northwest Expressway


If Santa Claus was not able to check off the fancy new electronic item on your list, it might be time to treat yourself. Anyone who wants to keep themselves on the cutting edge of the ever-changing gadget world needs to be aware of CDR Electronics, a locally owned business that equips its customers with the latest and greatest smartphones, tablets and gaming consoles (or at least an upgrade over their current version). But the new year is often as much about purging the old as it is bringing in the new. CDR buys many used phones and other gadgets so they can be a strong ally for anyone looking to declutter.

Bed Man

6601 N. May Ave.


What’s that up in the sky? Is it a bird? A plane? No, it’s that thinly padded sack of rocks you’ve been calling a mattress, angrily tossed from your second-floor window after one too many nights of restless half-sleep. Bed Man can be anyone’s personal superhero, thanks to a wide selection of mattress sets, box springs and frames set at reasonable prices. Feel free to come by the shop and take any of the display mattresses for a test drive. Just try not to get too comfortable.
