Tucked within their Old Hickory Mall location, the bakery mavens at Amy Lyn’s Sweet Treats prepare a daily plethora of cupcake varieties from scratch in the shop's on-site kitchen. Classic concoctions anchor the shop's everyday menu, as vanilla, red velvet, and chocolate treats beguile sweet teeth with their robust sugary wiles. Patrons can also queue up adventurous taste buds for an entrant from the shop's list of specialty flavors that, like the slowest county-fair Ferris wheel ever, rotates daily. Take a mind-expanding chomp out of exotic concoctions, including pink lemonade, cookies 'n' cream, carrot cake, and piña colada. Customers can cast the flavor fates to the wind or call the bakery at least two days in advance to submit a pretty-please-laced request for certain specialty or custom cupcakes.
At Hub City Bicycle Co., staffers don't just sell the cycling lifestyle—they live it.

Range USA brings together the local community of shooting enthusiasts on its range and during special events while welcoming new marksmen with informative and confidence-bolstering classes. The 20,000-square-foot Memphis facility houses a shooting range divided into two climate-controlled areas—one with nine lanes at 50 feet deep, the other with 14 lanes at 82 feet deep—with one of the two areas always open to the public. Further afield, Range USA's team also operates a 10-lane shooting gallery in Jackson. Besides overseeing the ranges, the staff also teaches classes, from basic handgun and advanced tactical training to women-only and youth programs. A FAQ page anticipates visitors' questions, such as "What calibers are allowed on the shooting range?" and "Do you have ear muffs to match my belt buckle?" When spending a day at Range USA, the facility's own 1776 Deli & Eatery keeps hunger from interfering with focus.
With secure storage spaces ranging in size from 5’x5’ to 10’x30’, Storage Towne of America hosts treasured belongings and allows for easy access in its clean and secure facility. Possessions indifferent to the weather can claim territory in non-climate-controlled units ($35–$145/month), and temperature-controlled units ($40–$165/month) tender refuge to such sensitive items as books, electronics, and snowmen bearing a strong likeness to William Taft. Units remain secure with fortress walls and individual security codes, and 24-hour access to the facility eases midnight longings for teddy bears mistakenly resigned to storage. Courtesy carts facilitate easy transport of items between the car and the unit.
