At The Mattress Capital, a knowledgeable staff of salespeople guides visitors through firm or downy mattresses that are all eager to go home and snuggle up to their new owners' slumbering forms. Guests consult with staff members before receiving a personalized tour as salespeople demonstrate the knowledge they gleaned by training one-on-one with experts until they knew each mattress like a horse trainer knows sugar-cube melting points. All of the store's mattresses, including brands such as Tempur-Pedic and Simmons, come with a 90-day comfort guarantee.
Sleep 123 puts fence-hopping sheep to rest with a variety of comfy mattress models by Serta and Corsicana. When sleepyheads walk in the door, they''ll be greeted by staff members who provide instruction in the fundamentals of mattress and bed choices.

In 1967, buddies Bob Magda and Tony Giordano started a humble lawn-care outfit that now has more than 460 locations in more than 40 states. The business was born of a serendipitous overlap between need and expertise: Bob recognized the frustration on the faces of the customers who attended his hardware store’s Sunday-morning lawn-care workshops, while Tony was hard at work on the industry’s first automated lawn-care machine. Together, they decided they could cure lawn-care woes by joining forces and—with a little fertilization from hard work and customer service—the seeds of Lawn Doctor were planted.
Today, those foundations can be recognized in the free lawn evaluation that kicks off every service call. A professional lawn-care technician performs a full overview of the lawn in question, classifying grass type and identifying pests such as weeds or insects. The technicians also review maintenance habits such as watering, mowing, and styling each blade of grass with hair gel. The team takes these factors into consideration when concocting a tailored treatment plan, which might include such services as application of the proprietary Turf Tamer application, pest control, or tree and shrub care.
Weed Man turns ordinary lawns into lush outdoor paradises. For the past 40 years, the team's weeded unwanted plants, nourished plants and grass with fertilizers, and aerated lawns to inject a burst of oxygen, a more effective method than lying on the lawn and puffing on each individual grass blade. The technicians keep an eye on the health of yards, recommending treatments such as crabgrass and grub control. And before beginning a new service, the soil's pH is tested, so that the most effective blend of nutrients can be applied.
