Just because people are savvy with a sewing machine doesn't mean they have eyes for fashion. Luckily, Fabulous Fabric's fashionable staff is more than happy to help customers by doing the design work for them. Whether guests are shopping for new curtains or looking for a fabric to cover a chair or drape around a regal living-room statue, the staff will happily help them shift through the endless bolts of fine-quality home-decor fabrics to choose one that best fits the job. From classic florals, stripes, and textured linens to trendy geometric designs and monochromatic animal prints, the store stocks fabrics to suit any taste or personal style, and there's even a selection of kid-friendly fabrics to give bedrooms and nurseries a playful pop of color. Flat-braid trims lend a finishing touch to DIY pillows and other projects, and those who prefer to leave the needle-and-thread work to a professional peruse a selection of colorful, ready-made curtain panels or speak to the staff about commissioning custom furniture.
The iDoctors’ helpful customer service staff and Apple-certified technicians repair injured iPods, iPads, iPhones, and Macs, and gussy up naked gadgets with a stock of device-enhancing accessories. Each member of the repair shop’s gadget-tenders goes through Apple’s rigorous training curriculum of diagnosing symptoms, properly opening and replacing equipment, and crafting emergency hard drives from recycled OS disks or disused childhood memories. The technicians’ skills go beyond diagnosing computing machines, and staff members root out computer problems on dead systems as well. Online customer service reps answer curious customers’ questions.
The staff at New Balance isn't concerned with simply selling shoes—their mission is to pair customers with the footwear that will carry them comfortably through life’s arduous steps. Understanding that an ill-fitting pair of athletic shoes can cause pain to joints and potentially damage knees, hips, and the back, associates measure the length and width of each client's foot and conduct a gait analysis to chart the trajectory of their stride when walking normally or running through ball pits. The data are collected to help the staff match clients with their ideal shoe, keeping them running longer and looking good while doing so.
