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.

Alesci’s embraces family traditions. If it’s not already apparent by the third generation of brothers who co-manage the deli and grocer, it shimmers to the surface in the stories of old regulars and those who remember Grandpa Frank Alesci. Starting with Frank, and now for more than 50 years, the Alesci family has curated a collection of imported products, providing immigrants with the sought-after goods from across the pond. Beyond that, it’s a place for fresh, crusty bread, pizza, a myriad of cheeses, and deli meats sliced by hand. Inside the 7,000-square-foot location, shelves are lined with everything from polenta to biscotti, olives to olive oil, and peppers who share space with their natural enemy: the tomato.
When Seymour and Esther Fischgrund founded Fish Furniture in 1925, the couple personally stained, painted, and housebroke each piece before sending it home with a customer. Today, Fish Furniture operates a bit more efficiently, but with the same attention to detail and quality. In the eight-plus decades since opening, the business has grown from 2 employees to 47. It features a pair of 40,000-square-foot show rooms, inside of which sit upholstery, bedroom sets, and office trimmings bearing solid-wood construction and the names of well-known manufacturers. Outside the show rooms, Fish's staff travels to homes to provide interior-design advice, and its courtesy touchups mend scuffs and scrapes in a more fashionable manner than haphazardly placed band-aids.

Blush Boutique, which was named Best Women’s Boutique on Fox 8’s 2010 Hot List, highlights the trendy and eclectic styles of independent and emerging designers with collections of women’s fashion and jewelry. The fashion emporium, bedecked with lemon-lime-magenta pompons, greets style mavens with groves of T-shirts, wallets, and other accessories ($10–$25), dresses and jackets ($25+), and thickets of bags ($25+) and handmade jewelry ($10+). A braided-strap top flatters torsos with floral patterns ($35), and a double-buckled belt ($24), available in beige and black, keeps belly buttons from shouting obscenities at an intrusive forefinger. Featured designers, such as Knitted Dove, Suzabelle, Veronica M, Espe, and Nicole Rae Styler, are on regular rotation, with owners Gina and Laurie—who are both designers themselves—selecting the best from each season to share with their clientele.
