When leaves start changing colors and floating on cool autumn breezes, Jumbo's Pumpkin Patch opens its gates to become a flurry of family fall activity. Visitors hop on a hayride that takes them to the 30-acre pumpkin patch, where scores of bulbous gourds lie ripe for the taking. Also accessible by hayride, a sprawling corn maze tests families' navigational skills and/or willingness to eat their way back home. Back at the farm, kids hop on pony rides and mini-wagon rides or try on a new face from a face painter. A petting zoo offers visitors close encounters with friendly farm animals, from rabbits and sheep to pigs and cows. The patch and attractions are located on the grounds of the Huffer Family Farm, which was purchased by the family in 1870. Seven generations later, the Huffers still cultivate the land for crops?when they're not cultivating corn mazes and armies of really nice scarecrows.

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.

When it comes to footwear restoration, the experts at Cobbler’s Bench Shoe Repair don’t just go through the motions. Instead, they put in the extra effort to return each pair to a like-new condition, a quality instilled by the company’s founders, Charles and Sara Stern, in 1946. All repairs are completed within three days and use equal or better materials than the original manufacturer, which helps protect shoes from environmental damage and teasing from snobby loafers. Cobbler’s Bench also maintains an offsite plant with special equipment to carry out particularly complicated repairs.
