Professional sleep counselors facilitate peaceful slumber at more than 80 Mattress Discounters locations nationwide, where showrooms brim with mattresses from brands such as Sealy Posturepedic, Tempur-Pedic, and Space Age Foam. Unlike pet stores, Mattress Discounters encourages customers to lie on the merchandise, as sleep counselors use the Discover Your Comfort system to ask questions about sleep position and comfort level. With this information in hand, client and counselor select the right mattress for restful slumber, with each sleep surface backed by a 60-night comfort guarantee.

The crackle of Fireside Hearth & Home's fireplaces have filled the soundscapes of households across the country for more than 60 years. Today, their well-stocked showrooms feature a variety of advanced gas, electric, and wood-burning models from top designers such as Quadra-Fire, Heat & Glo, and Heatilator. In addition to fireplaces and accessories, they offer a number of decorative surrounds and mantels built with stone, wood, or casted material to gussy up any new or existing hearth. At attractive display areas fashioned to look like natural household settings, attentive staffers stand by to answer any questions, offer installation guidelines, or share tips on repelling pesky Santas.
When Bob Long returned to Washington, DC, from service with the Merchant Marines in 1948, he immediately set to work building fences at his father’s modest business. The duo operated out of a permanently parked city bus, taking on clients through the years and building a reputation that eventually outgrew their makeshift office. After purchasing the company from his father in 1960, Bob recast Long Fence and Home as a complete provider of household upgrades, from window replacements to full kitchen remodels.
Under Bob's leadership, the company continued to stay ahead of technology and homeowners’ demands, adding solar-energy conversions to a lengthy list of services that already included siding, insulation, gutters, and doors. Though Bob's daughter, Jill, currently operates the company with her husband, John DePaola, the two stay true to Bob's vision by constantly seeking out new ways to make homes and bat caves more energy-efficient.
