From its modest origins in a garage, Appliance Factory Outlet & Mattresses has blossomed into a full-fledged appliance-vending behemoth with 13 locations throughout Colorado. The outlet compiles an enormous collection of handy household appliances from top-quality brands such as GE, Whirlpool, LG, and KitchenAid.

At each location, knowledgeable staffers shepherd patrons through sprawling showrooms, which collectively tout more than 150,000 pieces of equipment, including laundry machinery, kitchen appliances, microwaves, and macrowaves. They can special order items not in stock or tap into a stash of spare parts to repair busted apparatus. In addition to appliances, the staff can point patrons toward a fleet of mattresses and overstock items.

The trip from the forest to the living room is a short one thanks to Tree Land Christmas Trees. This company imports its Noble Fir, Grand Fir, and Frasier Fir trees straight from North Carolina and Oregon, and within days of being harvested they end up poised in one of 10 lots scattered throughout the area. Tree Land Christmas Trees sees the act of picking out a tree as a ritual as much as a purchase, and so they welcome families to stroll through their lots, inhale the fresh smells, and pick out the tree that will decorate their home for the duration of the holiday season. The helpful staff will even tie the tree to customers' vehicles or schedule deliveries for customers whose cars or bike baskets can't accommodate the tree.

In the spirit of the holidays, Tree Land Christmas Trees also makes it a point to donate trees to families in need.
