At more than 1,000 Mattress Firm locations around the country, shoppers sink into plush mattresses, recline on firm beds, and belly-flop onto pillow tops. Knowledgeable staffers can help customers create an ideal bedtime environment by dispensing advice based on sleep preferences and illuminating the difference between the many kinds of mattresses. And to the delight of their customers, much of Mattress Firm's bedding wears the label of a premium brand, such as Sealy, Serta, Simmons Beautyrest, or Stearns & Foster.
Within the sunny shelter of a sprawling greenhouse, clusters of potted perennials and annuals flourish beneath hundreds of hanging flowers. Seasoned growers have nurtured these buds into bloom in the Fox Valley climate, which means plants are already acclimated to the weather, growing environment, and particularly snarky bumblebee gossip of the local area.
To help customers navigate the vast stock, staff enhance the plant displays with growing tips. If budding green thumbs require additional guidance, growers on staff happily hunt down plants and flowers suited for their particular plot.
Hardware by Design, Inc. invites shoppers to peruse its 2,800-square-foot show room of copper sinks, decorative towel bars, cabinet hardware, and door hardware. Knowledgeable hardware designers can help homeowners make decorative decisions with house walk-throughs, and the store also offers free estimates. Plumbing fixtures from Mico Designs and California Faucets add touches of fashion and function to showers and baths, and vanities and sinks from Thompson Traders and Rocky Mountain Hardware turn everyday teeth brushing into luxurious ivory massaging. Locksets and knobs from top industry brands such as Ashley Norton, Nobilus, Bravura, and Top Knobs transform lackluster doors and kitchen cabinets into practical works of art.
