Since establishing themselves as one of Chicago?s leading mattress specialty stores back in 1983, The Bedding Experts remain a trusted source of brand-name bedding backed by extended warranties. Their showrooms across the nation are filled with models from Sealy, Tempur-Pedic, and Stearns & Foster, many of which are constructed with modern technologies such as memory foam and reduced-motion coils. Shoppers can also accessorize their mattresses with bed frames, pillows, mattress covers, and under-bed forcefields that repel hiding monsters. Deliveries often happen the same or next day?including evening and weekend service?with teams often taking old mattresses and frames with them when they leave. If customers find their mattress at a lower price within 60 days of purchase at one of the store's local competitors, The Bedding Experts team will refund the difference.

Knox Nursery, Inc. started in 1962 on the Knox family's porch. Although the family-run nursery has grown to encompass more than 23 acres since then, the second-generation owners haven’t forgotten their humble beginnings, still emphasizing the down-home customer service that made the business what it is today. They and their staff lovingly harnesses the Floridian sunshine to produce plugs and liners, cultivating more than 5,000 plant varieties ranging in size from young ones destined for greenhouses to 4-inchers perfect for landscaping.
At the retail center, staffers stand ready to help green-thumbed shoppers to navigate the selection of annuals and perennials or pick out shrubs to block views of money-filled swimming pools from jealous neighbors. Palms, trees, and vegetables await their chance to fill out gardens or finish landscapes.

A PT Cruiser pulls up to the curb, the exterior painted with a jumble of bright-colored flowers. The door opens and out comes...a hippie. But then, what did you expect from a floral shop named Flower Power?
The costumed drivers are just one way this family-owned florist is making its customer's smile. Owner Helen Raynor––who trained at the famous Judith Blacklock Flower School in London––came up with the creative idea with her husband James, after relocating from England to Davenport. The sunnier weather certainly suits the disposition of the friendly owners and their staff. Not only will they craft arrangements for birthdays, weddings, and bank holidays, but they'll also deliver them along with almost anything requested, even a case of bottled water.
