Inside Ashley Furniture HomeStore’s sprawling warehouses and showrooms, friendly staffers stock plush beds, sturdy end tables, and stylish home accessories. Expert designers craft these dwelling fillers, testing raw materials' durability and basic arithmetic skills before transforming them into classy furniture items that mesh with any decorating style. They build many tables and chairs to meet eco-friendly business standards, using recycled engineered wood to reduce landfill waste and slow down deforestation. Ashley also stocks nonwood items, including a selection of state-of-the-art body-cushioning mattresses from brands such as Sealy and Simmons.
For an additional charge, Ashley Furniture HomeStore transports its furniture using its own fleet of semi trucks and fighter planes, which ensure that comfortable couches and slick dining-room tables are never damaged and always fresh smelling. Each location is locally owned and operated, meaning staffers are friendly residents who know which couches best complement regional design trends and indoor weather patterns.
The friendly staffers at family-owned-and-operated Petals & Bows Florist happily tailor their bouquets to customers’ needs. Their purview incorporates seasonal arrays of fresh-cut blossoms, ranging from classic red roses to sprays of purple limonium, and can come paired with accessories such as festive bows or teddy bears. Prompt service ensures arrangements ready in time for special events, such as weddings, landmark birthdays, or commemorating a couple’s first kiss that didn’t include a lost tooth.
Dozens of mattress choices from brands that include Serta, Sealy Posturepedic, Four Seasons, Symbol, Tempur-Pedic, Simmons Beautyrest, Stearns & Foster, and Fashion Bed Group fill the Mattress Savvy showroom. Mattress Savvy understands it can be a bit overwhelming to choose one, so it recommends that you take a quick online survey about your sleep habits and needs, and a staffer will then contact you to make suggestions. These can range from whether the mattress should have a spring or gel core to what sort of mattress topper or memory-foam pillow can best support you. Besides mattresses, the shop also sells beds that range in style from traditional to modern and include head and foot boards, wrought-iron beds, sleigh beds, sheet protectors, and canopy beds.

There is barely a spot behind the desk at Frame-Art Gallery that is not covered in frame samples of all wooden colors and finishes, their upside-down v’s pointed toward the ceiling. In other areas, the walls support framed prints, diplomas, bridal photography, photos, and paintings, with a focus on African American and Civil War subjects. The staff turns 35 years of experience toward every preservation project, whether protecting art from UV damage with conservation glass or immortalizing sports and military memorabilia in shadow boxes.
