Born from the imaginations of two brothers running a flower shop, Edible Arrangements has grown from a single neighborhood storefront in Waltham, Massachusetts, to more than 1,100 locations throughout the globe, sending clusters of fresh fruit to deserving loved ones throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. Produce artisans arrange delicious bundles of candy-dipped apples, strawberries, and bananas alongside carved melon slices and morsels of orange, grape, and berry, combining the eye-catching color of a floral bouquet with every human's unconscious desire to feast on that bouquet. Guests stop in the store to enjoy fresh fruit smoothies and salad or pick up baskets to present to sweethearts, friends, or family in person. For web-based gift giving, helpful package tracking allows customers to keep tabs on their remotely ordered bounties of seasonal citrus bouquets and cocoa-covered berries.
Plymouth VIP Carwash & Auto Service extends the reach of a typical wash ‘n’ go center with professional detailing services and a full-service repair shop.

They consign second-hand garments, accessories, and home furnishings from casual sellers and convincing bridge trolls before lining their racks and shelves with the items. Many of their shoes and handbags hail from designer brands such as Gucci and Chanel, and their policy prohibits anything that's not from a designer, better department, or specialty story.
