Knox Nursery, Inc. started in 1962 on the Knox family's porch. Although the family-run nursery has grown to encompass more than 23 acres since then, the second-generation owners haven’t forgotten their humble beginnings, still emphasizing the down-home customer service that made the business what it is today. They and their staff lovingly harnesses the Floridian sunshine to produce plugs and liners, cultivating more than 5,000 plant varieties ranging in size from young ones destined for greenhouses to 4-inchers perfect for landscaping.
At the retail center, staffers stand ready to help green-thumbed shoppers to navigate the selection of annuals and perennials or pick out shrubs to block views of money-filled swimming pools from jealous neighbors. Palms, trees, and vegetables await their chance to fill out gardens or finish landscapes.
The staff of Dr. Snooze has transformed the process of selecting the perfect mattress into a science. A pressure-imaging pad is placed between a customer and their potential mattress, creating a map of pressure points on a computer screen and suggesting whether or not the mattress would be a comfortable fit. Patrons can use this technology to narrow down their options in a storeroom cushioned with models by Simmons, Laura Ashley, and King Koil. The inventory includes all sizes—including extra-large lengths for hibernating ogres—and plush infrastructures boast everything from innerspring to memory foam. A selection of bedding and furniture for adults and kids completes bedroom makeovers.
The entirely local staff members are committed to keeping their neighbors happy, so they will match any competitor's lower price within 30 days of purchase. Once buyers choose a mattress, white-glove delivery service ensures the pristine condition of items and includes haul away of old mattresses or an unwelcome Sandman if needed.
