A new baby can bring with it a bundle of new responsibilities, leaving parents anxious and in need of assistance. Thankfully, buybuy BABY’s expansive retail stores help preserve parental sanity with more than 20,000 products designed to ease the process of raising an infant or toddler. Online product guides and in-store registry specialists help parents sift through the wealth of strollers, highchairs, and other baby essentials from an encyclopedic list of brands.
Though buybuy BABY's stores can be as large as 60,000 square feet, parents feel like the center of attention thanks to private feeding rooms where they can freshen up their infants or test out new pacifiers without judgment. At the register, shoppers can present competitor pricing or coupons, which buybuy BABY honors as a commitment to keeping things affordable. Even after items have been wrapped in their signature pastel paper and shipped out, buybuy BABY looks out for families by faithfully reposting government recalls and accepting returns at all stores and online warehouses, even during naptime.
Nadeau characterizes its furniture as "with a soul" because it's true artisan work: handcrafted from wood rather than mass-produced from gasket pylons. Showcase fine china and live gerbils in a mahogany regal glass-door cabinet ($372), or in a hefty, finely trimmed narrow bookcase with drawer ($197). Or, display a new moving picture box on a bobbin leg console table ($116). Furniture comes in a myriad of stains and colors, and many pieces are one-of-a-kind. Nadeau's ever-changing inventory includes a variety of sturdy dining room tables and chairs. Prices and selection may vary due to rotating inventory, but pieces are always fully assembled and ready to welcome any tuckered torso or mound of toothbrushes.
Don’t be fooled by the beers on tap, the happy hour specials, or the games being played on big screen televisions—Corner Table at Whole Foods Market - Millburn-Union is not an average sports bar. Characteristically committed to ethical eating, the taproom presides over a selection of local craft beers and a menu of classic tavern fare made from locally sourced ingredients. The chefs whet appetites with battered avocado fries, accompanied by chipotle-ranch dressing, and locally-produced Chestnut Valley salumi served with a pretzel baguette. On the heartier side of the spread are prosciutto and fennel flatbreads, a pulled-pork sandwich drenched in honey-jalapeño barbecue sauce.
Beth Geller and her staff specialize in Endermologie—an innovative treatment that uses a noninvasive motorized device to smooth the deep tissue of the skin and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Bath Junkie’s Westfield branch welcomes crafty visitors who aim to create their own customized bath products without welding together bathtubs or sewing shower curtains into tuxedo capes. Amid a vibrant and colorful atmosphere, the helpful staff assists customers in selecting non-tinted and unscented products such as salt scrubs, bath crystals, lotions, body washes, shampoos, conditioners, oils, perfumes, and magical elf ointments that instill tree-talking abilities. Next, around 200 scents are available to be fused into each product before a final tint application transforms skin-soothing concoctions into aesthetically striking bathroom accessories. Surprise your mom with a hydrating body mist ($13.50, 4 oz.) that matches her bedroom décor or pick up any bottled product such as a conditioner, body wash, or bubble bath. Add pizzazz to bath time with bubbling bath crystals ($25.00) and an exfoliating salt scrub ($35). The fun, hands-on process provides all the childlike excitement of spontaneous soda-fountain chemistry while avoiding sugar-induced headaches and upset stomachs. Every product is suitable for sensitive skin and almost all are paraben- and SLS-free.
