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.

In Orange Garden Center's expansive nursery and store, cherry-bomb barberries and japanese maple trees keep watch over purple, yellow, and red flowers, all clad in leafy outfits. More than 800 varieties of perennials lend years of color to lawns, and friendly staffers assist more modest makeovers with stone accents, topsoil, and mulches in hardwood or cedar. After running curious palms over Orange Garden Center's stock of ornamental grasses, patrons can retreat inside to peruse gardening tools and specialty items, such as deer repellent and books on tape, to keep plants entertained while their owners are at work. Orange Garden Center also offers a selection of pottery and window boxes, and customers who purchase pottery can take advantage of the custom flower potting area, where staff is available to plant new purchases at no extra cost.
Adding one spice to a dish can create a whole new flavor. Adding a carefully selected melange of spices can create a taste revelation?at least that's how Jackie Mittelhammer and Becky Solheim see it. To give all types of chefs that revelatory power, they opened Savory Spice Shop Westfield, where they sell more than 400 spices and herbs and over 160 original spice blends. Grinding each fresh weekly, the flavor champions combine them in bags and bottles to create such harmonious concoctions as Peruvian chile-lime seasoning and Smoky Hills cheese powder with garlic and marjoram. They also give customers the chance to spice up dishes with exotic sea salts, including black lava salt from Hawaii and Italian black truffle sea salt, as well as sauces, extracts, and specialty sugars.
