Professional sleep counselors facilitate peaceful slumber at more than 80 Mattress Discounters locations nationwide, where showrooms brim with mattresses from brands such as Sealy Posturepedic, Tempur-Pedic, and Space Age Foam. Unlike pet stores, Mattress Discounters encourages customers to lie on the merchandise, as sleep counselors use the Discover Your Comfort system to ask questions about sleep position and comfort level. With this information in hand, client and counselor select the right mattress for restful slumber, with each sleep surface backed by a 60-night comfort guarantee.
Founded more than 25 years ago at a single store in suburban Maryland, Wild Bird Centers has since spread its bevy of birding gear and wildlife-watching supplies to approximately 50 locations across the United States and Canada. At each shop, knowledgeable and friendly staffers compile an immense inventory of top-quality birdseed, including their own exclusive blends of premium, field-tested ingredients. They equip patrons with a cavalcade of bird-watching accouterments such as binoculars, birdhouses, birdbaths, and Big Bird costumes and help customers to enhance their wildlife wisdom with gardening tools. To further help patrons to decipher the symphony of birdcalls they hear, Wild Bird Centers proffers a Backyard Birds Field Guide, which includes helpful information about the characteristics and habitat of common avian species. Additionally, all purchases contribute to customers' Birdie Bucks accounts, Wild Bird Centers' customer-rewards program.
