Before Comfort One Shoes' sole experts are allowed to fit a single shoe to a customer's foot, they must graduate from Comfort One University and undergo a mentorship process. It's only then that they can help shoppers find their desired footwear, whether it be lace-up Ziera boots, On running shoes with CloudTec technology, or Thierry Rabotin shoes, handmade without uncomfortable, rigid components. Alongside men's and women's footwear, the shop stocks an assortment of bags and accessories such as colorful iPhone cases from Triple C Designs that protect phone exteriors and conceal scratches from the last time you transformed into a werewolf.

Comfort One Shoes also seeks to better the world through creative philanthropic efforts, such as collecting 25,000 shoes for those without and offering their employees half their pay and time off to volunteer in the community. Perhaps such initiatives are part of the reason Comfort One Shoes earned the National Shoe Retailers Association’s Retailer of the Year Award in 2011.

In 2001, Dr. Robert Samit had a vision, which was a pretty appropriate phenomenon, considering that he's an optometrist. He saw in the future a network of eye doctors, united under the banner of a single company that provides trusted community doctors and a huge selection of value-priced and designer eyewear frames.

Together with company president Sue Downes, they equip this army of eye examiners with the latest technology. When a doctor determines that a corrective lens is called for, he or she prescribes them and MyEyeDr.'s team of eyecare consultants helps patients choose from a huge array of frames from such brands as Gucci, Coach, Oakley, and Ray Ban RX.

Ever since Addy and Ruth Bassin founded the company back in 1952, MacArthur Beverages has introduced American consumers to the finest European wines and spirits. The firm's brokers deal directly with wine merchants and n?gociants in Europe and America to bring their clients the best bordeauxs (their specialty) and other wines at competitive prices. MacArthur Beverages also stocks hard-to-find craft brews and top-shelf scotches, whiskies, cognacs, and brandies.

The company has set a number of milestones throughout its long history, including setting the world record in 1977 for paying the highest price ever for a single bottle of wine?$14,450 for an 1806 Chateau Lafite Rothschild?and unearthing the discovery that wine is just really old grape juice.
