Since 1979, Criswell Furniture has supplied high-quality and custom furniture to discerning denizens of Alabama and the Florida panhandle. In-store shoppers can sample snuggles on items such as the stone and camel loveseat ($349.95), a sand-and-bone color combination more comforting than stepping on triceratops jaws at the beach. Fatigued footsies can kick back and relax on a chocolate-brown ottoman ($149.95), or rest on one of the 400T Three-Pack tables ($199.95 for the set), despite sparks of protest from the robot-maid. Browsers in need of help are invited to fill out a Perfect Furniture process application to filter through the shop's stock of home goods based on their available space, preferred color palate, and attachment to their siracha dispenser. Criswell's staffers use the survey results in conjunction with a virtual room planner to find ideal matches and send corresponding photos to clients through email or e-carrier pigeon.
Royal Fine Cleaners' garment revivers bring untidy outfits back to life with same-day, painstaking laundering services. Employing a sanitizing solvent rather than water, dry cleaning bestows cleanliness upon clothing items that are too delicate or lack the swimming skills needed for traditional wet cleaning. Ready shorts or capris ($6.27) for warmer climes, or dust off sport coats ($7.11) for formal meet-and-greets with visiting basketball dignitaries. Dresses ($12.81) enjoy spotless nights out, and band pants ($6) bask in the shipshape sway and increased tuba-twirling dexterity that dry cleaning imparts. Bring in sweaters ($7.73) and ties ($6.85) for a double-whammy sprucing up in time for casual Friday, or whisk blouses ($6.43) through Royal Fine Cleaners' drive-thru window for some crud-eliminating attention.
Complete Lawn Care's fully licensed and insured landscapers specialize in keeping yards at their finest, grass at its greenest, and appointments at their on-timeliest. The staff of University of Alabama students beautifies landscapes with a flexible service menu and the ability to kill weeds via no-holds-barred staring contests. Gift lawns a fresh mowing, which includes debris blowing, precision trimming, and edging ($30–$60, depending on the size of the lawn up to 1 acre), or clear lawnscapes of dastardly leaves, branches, and criminal masterminds hiding behind shrubs ($60/cubic yd. of debris). Services are available on an à la carte basis for basic turf tune-ups or on a recurring schedule for greenery that demands regular attention. All prices are based upon individual estimates.

Patrons with pets or spill-prone friends can browse stain-resistant carpet or investigate hardwood options, available in real wood from Anderson and Mannington, and in natural-looking laminate ($6–9/sq. ft.). Alternatively, ceramic tiles from manufacturers such as Laufen and Interceramic ($8–$10/sq. ft.) spruce up bathrooms or assist sock skating derbies.
