Short of creating physical clouds to hold people aloft, Mattress Warehouse stocks almost every imaginable furnishing to help customers catch a few Z’s. Rows of name-brand mattresses from Sealy, Simmons Beautyrest, Serta, and Tempur-Pedic entice customers to replace their worn pad for new bedding, such as a standard mattress, a fluffy pillowtop unit, or a memory foam piece that conforms to bodies. Beyond mattresses, the warehouse also carries an ample collection of box springs, full bed sets with rails and headboards, and even premium futon mattresses that revitalize foldable couches.
With a 10,000-square-foot showroom full of fine furnishings, East Wake Furniture gives home havers the opportunity to saturate their living areas with style. The store carries a multitude of brands, including heavy hitters such as Vaughn-Basset, Simmons, and Serta, as well as lesser-known gems. The store plucks its furniture directly off the vine, saving money on price-tag ink by leaving the middleman out of transactions and on food costs by not inviting him to parties. Customers can avail themselves of a broad array of furnishings, including lamps ($29+), coffee tables ($99+), sofas, and children's furniture for foreign-exchange elves.

CCH Safety specializes in providing its students with the knowledge and the experience required to apply for a concealed-handgun license within North Carolina. Each day-long course begins by covering the state laws and statutes concerning the ownership of concealed handguns. The instructors provide this information using PowerPoint presentations, educational videos, and demonstrations, and opportunities for discussions and questions are available throughout the session.
In the afternoon, the experts go over proper firearm maintenance as well as fundamental safety practices. Under their supervision, students visit a private range for live-fire practice with targets located at distances of 3, 5, and 7 yards. In culmination of a successful course, pupils can qualify to apply for a North Carolina concealed-handgun license, which has reciprocity in 37 states.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
The chefs at Draft Carolina Burgers & Beers craft specialty burgers out of high-grade, local beef, boasting an extensive array of chuck cylinders alongside salads, sandwiches, and shareable appetizers. Every day, grass-fed Angus beef is ground in-house, eventually transforming into finger-bound feasts such as the Southern Lovin', a burger topped with fried green tomatoes, Holly Grove Farms goat cheese, bacon, and balsamic. Thanks to their partnership with the Mash House Brewery, Draft Carolina's bartenders decant ice-cold brews such as the Mash House blonde and the Mash House IPA, which won the 2001 Great American Beer Festival medal for Hoppy Hour IPA. Billiards and shuffleboard make ideal after-dinner entertainment, and a casual, welcoming atmosphere greets diners inhabiting all points of the monocle-to-jorts fanciness scale.
