The Peveto family's name became synonymous with stopping power when John Peveto II opened his first Brake Check shop in 1968. More than 40 years and 40 shops later, the family still helps cars stop (and go) with brake-pad inspections, wheel alignments, battery replacements, and oil changes. With convenience in mind, each shop opens its work bays seven days a week, offers online appointments, and backs up several of their services with lifetime warranties that are then backed up by other even more muscular warranties.:m]]

Twenty-six years ago, working mother Karen Scott had a light-bulb moment. She envisioned a one-stop children's clothing, toy, and furniture emporium. Karen and her husband set up shop in their garage, connecting new moms and dads to high-quality baby clothes, nursery furniture, and educational toys. They meticulously researched products before creating their own catalogue, and as a result watched their enterprise blossom into a lucrative online business. Today, One Step Ahead employs their own in-house design team responsible for exclusive labels of kidswear such as Cozy Cub winter wear Sun Smarties swimwear and summer gear.
Regular meetings with a Parents' Panel keep One Step Ahead designers in touch with the needs of modern parents. Seeking out their input has led the design team to create products such as a fleece-lined car seat for comfortably toting a baby in cold weather and a hanging closet organizer for managing a child's superhero identities.
