Allied Foam upgrades dream platforms with durable foam mattress pads, pillows, and protective covers designed to ensure comfort and enhance restful sleep. With each CorrectRest twin XL mattress pad, dorm-dwelling students or extra-large twins can protect their temporary sleeping stations with layers of foam that are impervious to water and dust mites. The deluxe pads cushion dreamers with two layers of the American-made foam, and the supreme models offer three layers to further bolster healthy sleep. Though waterproof, the temperature-regulating material works to prevent excessive heat, and each pad is sewn in a way that thwarts bedbugs and nightmares about overcooking ramen noodles.
The old west is alive and well in World Imports' spacious storeroom, where rustic leather rocking chairs rub aged wooden elbows with embroidered fabric sofas and intricately carved cupboards. Even their modern living-room and office furnishings retain an antique, southwestern aesthetic, including elegant roll-top desks and aged-wood entertainment centers capable of supporting both flat-screen TVs and vaudevillian barroom brawls. The constantly updated stock carries pieces for every room in the house, showcasing everything from stone-topped kitchen islands and rough-hewn bedroom sets to reclining leather love seats and dining-room sets made from handcrafted wood.
Batteries Plus, No. 19 on the Dun & Bradstreet AllBusiness AllStar Franchise rankings, connects to a network of 515 stores in order to stock more than 40,000 types of batteries and light bulbs and ensure that customers can special order obscure parts. Their batteries range from dainty watch batteries to 5,000-pound leviathans that can power forklifts, and an on-site tech center can design and assemble custom batteries or rebuild old ones.

To safeguard the environment, Batteries Plus's staff recycles all types of batteries and bulbs rather than hauling them to landfills or feeding them to each other.
