Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.

Inside Ashley Furniture HomeStore’s sprawling warehouses and show rooms, friendly staffers stock plush beds, sturdy end tables, and stylish home accessories. Expert designers craft these dwelling fillers, testing raw materials' durability and basic arithmetic skills before transforming them into classy furniture items that mesh with any decorating style. They build many tables and chairs to meet eco-friendly business standards, using recycled engineered wood to reduce landfill waste and slow down deforestation. Ashley also stocks nonwood items, including a selection of state-of-the-art body-cushioning mattresses from brands such as Sealy and Simmons.

For an additional charge, Ashley Furniture HomeStore transports its furniture using its own fleet of semi trucks and fighter planes, which ensure that comfortable couches and slick dining-room tables are never damaged and always fresh smelling. Each location is locally owned and operated, meaning staffers are friendly residents who know which couches best complement regional design trends and indoor weather patterns.

Solid-wood furniture gathered from more than 200 Amish shops and craftsmen mingles with playful holiday statuettes and fun home décor inside The Granary's walk-through showroom. Handcrafted living-room, dining-room, and children's furniture comes to the retailer fashioned the way it was 150 years ago—made from solid oak, cherry, maple, or hickory wood, held together by screws and dovetails, and carried by a legion of pterodactyls. In addition to ready-made furnishings, artisans can craft custom pieces. The store fills not only inside spaces, but also outside spaces with crafted benches and storage barns from Weaver Barns. Knowledgeable staff members assist customers long after their purchases by answering service inquiries or questions of whether to sleep atop or under newly purchased beds.
