Atlantic Bedding and Furniture showrooms speckle the Southeast, each one a treasure-trove of fine furniture and top-brand mattresses. Attentive staffers bustle past collections of leather couches and arrangements of dark-wood dining sets, eager to assist customers in their quest to find a memory-foam mattress that best suits their sleeping habits or a rug that best covers up the dungeon trapdoor in their living room. If an item is out of stock, the attendants can have it shipped directly from the company's central warehouse—a cavernous storeroom packed with furniture from top vendors like Coaster, Sealy, and Lifestyle Solutions. Much of the furniture is available online, enabling customers to shop from the comfort of home.
From the vibrant tubes and slides of the multilevel FunZone playground to the squeal-inducing Tubs-of-Fun and Red Baron Bi-planes, FunStation2000's rides and games engage youngsters of all ages. As the Himalaya Rollercoaster speeds around its track, the laser-tag arena accommodates bouts between phaser-wielding teams. In the indoor batting cages, balls hurtle toward future home-run hitters and team mascots who need to practice dodging the swings of angry players. FunStation2000 continues enticing guests with a massive arcade and snack station full of treats including cheese pizzas, spicy popcorn chicken, and corn dogs.
In addition to accommodating spontaneous days of revelry, the center's staff hosts private parties, complete with game tokens, playtime, and pizza and cake served in the animal-themed party room.
The staff at Presto Cleaners makes environmentally friendly cleaning practices and hand-inspection of garments central tenets in their business, and they perform all cleaning and laundry on site. Technicians use enzyme-activated detergents to lift away stains before hand-inspecting the threads to catch any remaining impurities. After dry or wet cleaning garments, the team touches them up with free button replacement and a hand-finish if the clothes are made of delicate material or sports car siding.
An affordable and monumental selection of plush beds, sturdy end tables, and stylish home accessories mingle good-naturedly in Ashley Furniture HomeStore’s warehouse. Customers can pick up a Cubit ottoman ($129) in a bevy of academic hues, such as scarlet, black, and mocha, then use it to accent their book club's discussion of Lego Star Wars. A wide selection of accent chairs—such as the red Marrissa salsa accent chair ($219) and the Danielle eggplant accent chair covered in a modern fabric design ($349)—adds charm to drab corners and panic rooms. Additionally, shoppers can augment somnolence and fill barren boudoirs with elegant bed frames, including the Janel queen sleigh bed ($399).
Scampering through open fields of green grass to play with new friends sounds like the ideal life for most dogs. But some canines would rather stay away from the rowdiness, perhaps on a warm lap beneath a sturdy roof. The dog-loving caregivers at The Crate Escape, LLC know that different dogs have different personalities, and that's why they try their best to cater to each pup's desires. During overnight boarding and daily daycare, energetic dogs are given free rein of the facility's outdoor play area all day long, or they may retreat indoors for quiet time away from the midday heat. Dogs with smaller statures or quieter dispositions can stay inside if they'd like, or they can venture into their own designated outdoor area with the knowledge that they can come back indoors whenever they've had enough. All the while, staff members are in attendance to scratch an ear, fill a dinner bowl, and throw a frisbee to make sure their furry guests are relaxed and cared for. For overnighters, the handlers also make sure to grant the dogs a potty break first thing in the morning and before watching their nightly dog talk shows.
