Twenty-six years ago, working mother Karen Scott had a light-bulb moment. She envisioned a one-stop children's clothing, toy, and furniture emporium. Karen and her husband set up shop in their garage, connecting new moms and dads to high-quality baby clothes, nursery furniture, and educational toys. They meticulously researched products before creating their own catalogue, and as a result watched their enterprise blossom into a lucrative online business. Today, One Step Ahead employs their own in-house design team responsible for exclusive labels of kidswear such as Cozy Cub winter wear Sun Smarties swimwear and summer gear.
Regular meetings with a Parents' Panel keep One Step Ahead designers in touch with the needs of modern parents. Seeking out their input has led the design team to create products such as a fleece-lined car seat for comfortably toting a baby in cold weather and a hanging closet organizer for managing a child's superhero identities.

Like the legendary sleuth for whom he's named, Sherlock the beagle can detect foul play from minimal clues. The culprit is typically bedbugs, which the certified detection dog tracks down for Nose Bed Bugs. In residential and commercial spaces alike, Sherlock tracks down the cimex lectularius and its viable eggs at low infestation levels and in difficult locations such as laundry piles, heating vents, and bookcases. If Sherlock stumbles upon the unwelcome parasites, the Nose Bed Bugs team can refer clients to trustworthy exterminators to clear out the infestation, rather than bigger bedbugs to scare away the current ones.
