Bedzzz Express facilitates the best night’s sleep possible by taking inventory of customers’ sleeping habits to help them choose the perfect mattress. President Keith Krininger credits this practice with Bedzzz Express success, which has resulted in 32 store locations sprinkled across three states. In the showroom, models from Sealy, Serta, and Simmons cushion bodies at rest with a range of comfortable materials including foam and pillow tops that help lull customers to sleep. Mattresses and mattress sets are available in twin, full, queen, and king sizes and can be delivered locally.
Not Enough Hours frees the errand-shackled of Huntsville and Madison from their time manacles with an extensive list of concierge services (valued at $15 per hour). Two hours of personal grocery shopping plus delivery gives the once-rushed time and energy to devote to other things, such as spending quality time with friends and family, increasing workday productivity, and raising a stronger stable of racing emus. By entrusting Not Enough Hours to do the grocery shopping, fiscally and physically unhealthy impulse buys get thwarted before they can even tempt. The Not Enough Hours team prefers 24-hour notice for services, but they offer same-day appointment requests for an additional charge ($10 for two hours of notice and $5 for three hours of notice).
After spending years raising her sons at home, Lynn Crumbly opened a shop where she sold homemade fudge and retail items. She sold the shop in 1999, but she kept her fudge-making equipment, using it for an annual Christmas party for which she'd make as much as 140 pounds of fudge for her friends and family.
Now that equipment has a new home at Whistle Stop Sweet Shop, the confectionery where Lynn and her team craft fresh fudge in flavors such as maple nut or chocolate caramel sea salt, scoop gelato, and stock bins with old-fashioned hard candy. Quaint displays decorate the historic Main Street storefront, and a train circles its ceiling on a wooden track.
